@Htmlmainiac – sorry that your post is going a little of course!
My recommendation would to tone down a lot of your elements. Really focus on simple and lean before you starting throwing gradients all over the place. Design is all about the minute details that bring elements to life.
The site is relatively good for someone who is as young as you are, but there definitely things that you can improve on pretty easily. As others have said, the gradients are a bit much. I would stick with a solid colour for the border of the content and a more subtle gradient for the page background.
In my opinion, I would put your logo all on one line, rather than having parts of your name higher than others. I would use a different font for your headings as Papyrus is a little (!) overused. Personally I like [Trocchi](http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Trocchi “http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Trocchi”).
So yeah, good job on the enthusiasm and good luck for the competition
@djdaniel150 Well this isn’t a conversation about my logo is it? And it seems alot of people seem to agree with the gradient overuse. Perhaps you read my comment with the wrong tone? I was just giving some constructive criticism.
“To be completely honest, I got sick of waiting for the page to load.” the site loads very fast, you’re just talking negatively about his work. Also, I noticed how you guys talk trash to people, and when they respond you just delete their post. You guys talk trash to me and everyone and anyone else who enters this board, yet you delete their posts if they respond. This one will just get deleted I’m sure, so that no one can read it. Ridiculous.
