the new layout is cool.. although i am not here since the start.. i can say that the color scheme in the user control panel isnt all that accessible.. there are many cases of brown background and black text.. it sort of doesnt look professional ... nor it looks casual appealing.. altough the effort looks good

When you refer to the user control panel, which part of the website are you referring to? I'm aware that there are some issues with colour and text such as in classified ads. Also the text on the send button in private messaging isn't visible. These are points that I intend to put right at some stage.

As for things not looking professional, in my defence, I am not a professional website designer, just someone who loves his fish and wants to share his knowledge with other enthusiasts. I do however pride myself on the fact that in the 2 1/2 years we have been running, we are now number one on Google for not only "oscar fish", but many many other terms as well.

I am learning new things every day and hopefully this will reflect on our website. I am always open for suggestions for improving OFL.com, not only in the way it looks, but the way we all interact with each other on the website. This is one reason why I have installed community builder. There's no point in making things too complicated for people because they just won't bother using some of the facilities. I was asked if we could include some kind of photo contest. As of yet, I have been unable to find any software that will integrate with the website software. I am working on it though.

Constructive criticism is always appreciated as it makes it easier to improve things. I'm always willing to accept help if need be from people in the know.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

I forgot to add that by no means was I having a pop at you Warlock. I'm very much an intermediate and in many cases I have to seek help from various forums that relate to the software that we are using. Even then they don't always have the answer. However, I've done all myself I am actually quite proud of that.

A lot of the colour problems are due to the template we are using. In hindsight, it probably wasn't the best colour to choose. Adding a varied colours scheme to the homepage has I think made it a little more appealing to first-time visitors. I don't want people thinking we are all goths:laugh:
