I like the smell of competition in the morning
Nah just messing, as far as the design goes its reminds me of windows media player with the big play button.
I've said it before, and i'll say it again... Don't overshoot your resolution budget!!!!!! plan for users with 800x600... i'm at a different office today using 1024x768... the site is unusable at this res. Definately the biggest thing, I see it everywhere... It looks like you're using invision, or another templatey style website. These kind of things can only take you so far, and are easily recognisable especially by the target audience you are shooting for.
Whats with all the advertisements? Advertisements suck arse, if you're going to advertise things, at least do it for relevant things. Like user's websites, 3d modelling sites e.t.c, do you really get enough money from your google ads to warrant them deterring visitors?
Once I clicked on forum, the new page has no title. :O Where am I?
Another thing is the border around your image on the main page... Definately a no no, its default html-ing mate, get rid of that border, or make it decent. We dont like unwanted html nudity anywhere!!!
You've got a decent amount of members + posts... yet to me the site seems half finished.
