The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Oh come now InI... it's not that bad.

But it's not that good either, which simply means there's room for improvment ... Yay!

Ok then. Colour. That green has to go. Or, maybe finding some other colours to put with it so that it's doesn't have that "Revenge of the 16 Colour EGA" Kinda thing going on.

At the moment I think all of the colours are over saturated. Tone them down a bit and it'll loot a lot better. Yeah, there's just so much contrast it kinda hurts. Make some of the borders thinner, lighten up some f the dark areas, darken the background a little (A nice soft blue maybe?) and desaturate some of the colours and you'll notice the difference.

Holy shit. How freakin high is your screen resolution? It's gotta be huge or you've made a huge boo boo on the contact page. Big fat scroll bar along the bottom of my browser. That's not good. Fix that....

Yeah. Um... err... eh. That'll do it.

Well, considering InI's reaction to the green, I suppose the blue is better. I'd have to say, though, that it looks a bit too saturated (see Drac's comment above). I would cut it down to maybe 20% (rather than the 40% you've got now). I know it may seem like a lot, but you don't want background colors to stand out.

You also seem to have a thin little strip of green at the bottom--was that left over from the first design?

Also, given your color scheme, links are less visible than regular text. This is not good, in my opinion. Links are supposed to stand out. What about using a different color for your links?

There seems to be little consistency from page to page. On the home page you have the wide blue boxes for the content, your scripts pages have no content boxes (which is very bad, btw, since the text is almost illegible against that striped background), the contact page uses the darker blue for the background (and also scrolls horizontally, which is bad), and the statistics page has a grey background (and the stats also run right up against the light blue navigation section--you need a margin there).

Those are just a few thoughts. Hope they help.
