    Looks pretty good.

    A couple of minor details I think need to be hashed out before we really go public with it (unless of course it already is).

    1) Tons of run-on sentences in our description. Not a huge biggie, but I believe it makes us look a little more intelligent if that reads correctly. While I imagine someone could do better than me, I believe there needs to be a few more periods in there. I can fix them if you want. ;)

    2) Most of the graphics take forever to load on 56k. For instance, the emblem of the Rebel/Imperial logo is 37K. We could probably get the down considerably since there aren't many colors. And the fiery logo to the far right is 357K. Wow! That could easily be under 50k or so. Anywho, I know.. I know.. I need Cable or DSL but many of us don't. I just know how it feels on my end. If you want those images to be crunched a little, let me know and I'll Photoshop them a little to make them more manageable. Also, is it just me or is that black image at the top a tad hard to read. Bah, maybe it's just me.

    Sorry to nitpick. I was just thinking what could make it look more professional. I know it was thrown together quickly, and I understand. :)

    But I do like where it is going. It will surely make a lot of Arkansas Star Wars fans happy!! :D

    hey everyone I started a layout around midnight last night and finished the design right about the time that henry posted that other one, lol. As soon as I can get it uploaded I will (ftp is messed up) and I will show everyone.

    EDIT - finally got net2ftp.com working so I could upload this.
    main page

    sub page
    [image=http://swell-designs.net/arkansith/arkansith_layout_sub_page.gif]
    this is inspired look by starwars.com though it isn't a copy so it should be alright.

    also this is a rough draft so I can go in and change anything.

    note - some of the colors look weird because of the format, final versions would look normal though (i'm talking about like the logo on the right side how it looks low quality)

    Just for the record, it might be better if we had more entries in the upcoming events section--maybe sacrifice some of the space from recent events?

    Also, when there is an upcoming events list up on our actual site, can you make sure the Pool Party/BBQ/Drive-In on July 9 is on the list?

    lol, thats just the layout, the content will be added when its coded, that stuff is just to show where everything would go (that is if you were talking about the layout i just made and not the domain already)

    I think those layouts look great! All I see wrong is that the word "galactic" is misspelled. Other than that, it's awesome!

    Lookin' good, Jaron. Just curious. Are you using some type of PHP or ASP to pull the "Latest Post" items from the boards into our site? Or is it just something that needs to be manually updated?

    Hey

    i'm not sure yet, it will probably be PHP or manual, becuase i don't know ASP, but I am going to email theforce.net and ask them about it and how I could get it from our boards, so it shouldn't be a problem, and if it is i will just change it to something else.
