I have a new website, please view it: BlueDev (http://www.bluedev.net)

I also has a download section that includes a GLUT and OpenGL Installer, and I also have a Chat and Forum section.

It's easy to navigate and looks slick. Good job.

Nice site, renders fine in Opera7, IE and Mozilla.

Am I missing something? There's no content on the site, and the font for the side/top bars is very unclear. It's grey and dowdy.
You should maybe look at http://www.delphi3d.net for tips on style and content.

Looks good. A small usability point though:

Your links on the left look like buttons but work like links (you have to click the text, you can't click anywhere on the button). Either make them look like links or change it so you can click anywhere on the button. Now it's just confusing.

Thanks http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

I don't have a problem with the font and color scheme as such, although I can imagine that people who are running a 17" screen at 1600x1200 might disagree. The rollover effect of the buttons is too subtle, though -- you really can't tell it's happening unless you squint and sort of tilt your head a bit http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Other than that, you really need to get rid of the god awful music. If your visitors wanted to hear some good music, they'd put on a Ween CD.

There is an option on the top left of my webpage under my logo that allows you to turn the sound on and off. When you first enter the Website, it says "Sound: On", then press the On button and it will turn off, vice versa.

The music has a great game-like resemblance, such as JetFighter IV and Mechwarrior 4.

To harsman: I am using text as my links, becuase button-links takes longer to load the webpage. I also made the links a bit more vibrant so the user can see them.

Nice pages, but if you use text as links, they really should look like text links. And it's hard to see how the sound is turned off. You should use either a button or a checkbox for that. At the moment it doesn't look like you're supposed to click it, and it doesn't help that only the "on" part can be clicked...

very nice! good color combination! will really be an extremely popular site once more tutorials are up! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif.

just want you to notice that you didn't put up a download link in your horizontal bar links when you had one in your front page (the vertical bar in the middle left side of the screen).
