1 comment - the forums are weird, they are inside the middle frame , it would be better to have them on their own page

with similar graphics, it give me a claustrophobic vibe :p

Well, that's actually, because of the bg :)

And here's heavy discussion about the forums. Some ppl like the frame, others - not. So, we're deciding what to do :p

I like it aside from the marquee. Those went out in the late 90s I think. ;)

It looks nice, although the forums look very messy and don't carry the same "look" of the frontpage design.

Ok... your main white content area just doesn't feel right with the centered text - and short amount of it at that. Secondly, why does hosting lead the user to the forums? If you're a hosting company, why do you have board stats on the front page? Having to jump around from your normal layout to forums pages for information is amazingly awkward. Your site is missing 2 pages of information... especially the about page.. should not launch a site until its completed.. blah blah blah.

So why are you using a 1600x1200 image for the background? Chop it to 3px wide and 1200px tall, thats all you need.

 body {
	 background:url(images/bg.jpg) repeat-x top left fixed;
}

That's because of the lines in it. I think we need something else 'cause if we repeat it just looks crappy

Also, we're still workin on the forums :p

And those hosting, about & FAQ pages will also be fixed quite soon :)

.. no it wouldnt.

If you cut it right, it works perfectly.. and I gave you the dimensions. Take the first 3 pixels on the left, and all the way down. Id do it for you, but the image is compressed and looks like poo.

Also, we have changed the forum integration, maybe now it's better :p

I agree. I am at work and I am using small monitor. The viewing area is really small. If you can improve that it would be cool. Nice site.

Hmm.... You know, even if we remove the frame and let the forum as it is, the width of forum's header will be the same as the current's one :p

Well, where's the text it should be white :p

Btw, thx for comments... Also, we're working on the forum's integration. If it fails I think we will have to return to usual forum style :p

Dunno, I use 1280x1024 and can easily read...

Ok, I think I will increase the site a bit :p Though it's strange...

Hmm... that's an idea, need to think over...

Looks good but the white space behind the main welcome text needs a background to. Or something to make it look easier on the eye. The scrolling marque is very fast on 64bit lol.

I think the StoneRocket and the logo needs to be bigger and more impacting so you remember it easy. Like it should be the first thing you look at. It seems quite tucked away in that corner.
