FYI it isnt launched yet so things are setup for looks. The only thing that is true is that if you sign up pre launch you get a $20 credit to your account.

Yes, definantly. Youd coding seems to be very stable. Eberything is working great. Also, I have been looking for a site like this for quite a bit of time! I think that I will use this quite a bit in the future!

Thanks!

Graphical suggestion:
The blue naviagation bar at the top should run across all of the red instead of leaving gaps on both ends. ;)

Very nice, better than what I can do, I'm liking everything, but your logo.

In all honesty, I don't like it (sorry!)

The logo doesn't fit the layout (the white on dark red/blue) and the links on the blue bar seem to far down - they should be more in the middle than the bottom.

The grey background on the left side should also be changed to the dark blue colour in the middle. Speaking of the dark blue colour, I think that might look better if it was the same colour as the top blue bar.

Just my two cents...

The design is good for that type of site..You should however explain what the site on the first homepage. How it works etc.

Much better without the grey backgrounds on the side :)

I still don't like the logo bit though, the white just doesn't look right with the other colours. I also noticed you were still using the default template: http://www.softbizsc...pts/classified/ and defaults never look good - so work with it some more!

I'm not really feeling the logo either. It just doesn't "pop" - just kind of blends in with the rest of the header. There is a rather large faded drop shadow behind the name - which if you lose that, it would be a start :) It just appears too washed out IMO.

Looks better, but I still think that bar needs to be strechted across the header. I wont make any comments about the logo since other people seem to know more about logo design than I. IMO it will look much better when there is content filling up in between the different parts of the site instead of all that white space.

agreed z77. What I was going for in the logo is kinda that county fair sign thing you know the big sign thats hand painted on the side of the road. But I can understand the comments. Yea I am working on a different theme but this one will do until i mess around with it. BTW now that I have announced a launch date I am gonna have to hurry ;-) August 20th

I still think your logo should be more simplistic, your current isn't exactly flowing to me, make yourself one like this Posted Image just something very very easy.
