1st web site

    A couple of years ago, I was asked to look after the curling club’s web site, I have been doing
    it ever since. Last August, I knew little about HTML and CSS and decided to learn something
    it all, I took all of the online tutorials I could find and after using that knowledge to maintain
    the original curling club web site I was origonally charged with maintaining
    http://www.stthomascurlingclub.com, I decided that I needed to try and find some
    other club to build a web site for. I tried to contact curling clubs in my area to volunteer to
    write a web site for them, in the end, the curling club in Kingsville took up my
    offer and the site designed and created by me was launched on Monday July 21, 2008. It has
    been a collaborative effort with one of the guys from that club to finally get it up on the web,
    but finally the web site was uploaded and is now available on the web.

    new web site: http://www.kingsvillecurling.com

    Purely from a developers point of view, you need to remove any styling from the html, and place it all into the layout.css file. As far as the design goes, the "Membership Application Forms" and "Latest News" divs should not be fixed. In very small and very large resolutions, the design gets broken. Float them to the left, and give them some padding to keep them away from the main body text. I’m just wondering why this new design is so stripped down. Use 2 or 3 different colour for the fonts, and maybe use some sort of curling photo for the header like in the old design.

    I don’t like but I see where you’re trying to go with it ..
    The main Bg work’s well with you’re plans but you’ll need to leave more room for action images … :ugeek:

    May I suggest not using the scrolling marquee? You see, its often times distracting from a visitors point of view, to not being able to control the "action" on the page. So, if I’m trying to read some normal, non-animated text, I have to see this scrolling(and rather fast I might add) text above what I’m reading. I’m a personal fan of slow fade ins and outs. That to me isn’t so distracting if used appropriately.

    Just my opinion… shared by many. =)
