Yep, looks nice. Just wondering why you're hiding the source? Most people who are going to be looking at your source will know how to get around that ;).

I think the frontpage it’s much better then the older one, it looks that has something more to what’s going on inside this site. Showing some of the latest winner's designs is a very good idea and I hope it will link to some more in the future. The bar with the clouds is great, it’s the peaceful movement that was missing (I can hear the breeze blowing), it was great if the mascot was animated too, but anyway looks fine.

well.. I suppose it was time for the site to be updated, and I think whoever did it has done a nice job.

The site has a great layout, and I think that the contest bar on the side is really well done. I just hope you guys have an easy way to update it, because that will be a pain to edit everytime a new contest is started/ends.

I don't like the font on the menu bar - its too bold and kind of hard to read.
I am also not too sure about the mascot - it kind of looks like an eraser with bucked teeth rather than a mouse. One final criticism (its constructive I promise!) I think the background colour doesn't match the rest of the site. I can see the attempt to integrate it with the brown colour of the forums... but it doesn't match the other bright colours. A light whitish colour would look much better.

Good job guys :)

Another note:

'Check here our last winners' feels like very broken english to me. Maybe 'Check out the latest winners' or something of the sort.

Edit: Apologies to anyone who misconstrued my first post in this thread as insulting... I certainly didn't mean it that way. (I was alerted by a moderator that the said post may be found to be insulting) I was just inquiring as to the reason frames were used on this site- as far as I can tell, the only reason being to hide the source code.

Looks Good. Great job!!

1. no link once i click on 'our last winner'.... i agree w/ kpeat's suggestion 'Check out the latest winners'

2. not consistent w/ the forum header/layout. i.e. logo, colours, etc...

3. very hard to find link for homepage once in the forum site. i think it must have link once click to the logo...
just my suggestion.

Looks nice.


Maybe a lighter brown colour would look nice for the bg.
The illustration on the character is brilliant but it feels out of place to me.
Like some of the people before me, I can not understand why you have
used a frameset, it seems to bare no function. All I am thinking it will do
is confuse search engines. In regards to hiding the source, I don't think that
you have done it for that, if you have then it is quite easy to obtain it,
