Idk, the Newsdesk and Forum tabs look so cool.

But then the Gallery one is just like, eh, idk.
I would say make the "Gallery" text a little more defined.

It also looks almost.....how do I say it? Girly? At least the "Gallery" text.

Idk, maybe I'm just blowing wind here, wouldn't be the first time, lol.

II like the new tabs quite a bit. The Gallery one could use a new font, the word 'Gallery' fades into the background and is harder to see then the rest. You may have to check the forum tab when your in the gallery section, while there the forum tab doesn't seem to work.


Otherwise, great job!!

I can see them all well with my CRT monitor at home.

LCDs ain't gonna see them well due to the color loss on them.

The forum tab does make me think of Lords of the Battlefield though.

Except me, I havd an ultrabright LCD on my laptop, so all colors come out very well. It winds up being a problem when I try to design for all screen types.

Everything shows well for me; I like some of the subtle changes that I've been noticing over the last few days.

we've a saying here at work...

"it's good enough for government work"

as for the gallery tab: I suggest changing 'Gallery' to the same font as 'BTU', and keep the color differential.

Overall: nice work~ it does dress up the page very well.

Thicken the font a bit so it is easier to see at a glance. Otherwise, it looks just fine. Z is just having an attack of... well, something.

I liked the old Gallery Tab better.

More stylish.

I know.

Just make everyone go out and get a good CRT or an even more expensive LCD. :lol:
