Pretty with Internet explorer. Ugly with Netscape.

Dangerous, dangerous play. Sounds like you are using IE only script, which breaks most of the W3C standards and means that Netscape, Mozilla, Firebird, Konqueror and tons of others can't see your site. This should be easy enough to fix, but may take time.

I don't especially like having to mouse over each link to see what's going on and it doesn't help search engines find your info either. You do have a nice clean looking design, but there is a LOT of white space going on there! There are much better counters then bravenet, but most people starting up tend to use them (I did). You can try BBClone if you have PHP available to you or have a search round hotscripts.com.

There are quite a few broken links and the popup is annoying when you go back to the main page every time. The stuff page is too wide even for 1024x768, maybe you need to look at using CSS resizing so that people don't have to sidescroll, which I personally hate.

The meetus section is very cool, but you could do better with the size of the images, it is very easy to reduce jpgs to much smaller file sizes without compromising actual size and quality. Your dialup fans will appreciate this!

Why is the review section so far away from the main page, this again doesn't help with search engines. There's absolutely tons of stuff there that you haven't let us know about on the front page (well enough). People are into that kind of thing so its a bit of a shame since you've made the effort.

A passworded message boarded is one of the best ways to put people off. Sure you can passworded parts, but all of it takes the mick.

I have to go. Hope this helps.
