*sigh* It's 'optimized' for IE. That means it doesn't work well with other browsers. For the sake of standards, stick to something that opens in everything. I'd run IE...if I ran Windows. In Opera, there are no links to select low/high bandwidth sites. And the flash animation drags just a tad. If you could make it standardized, I'd imagine you'd have a nice site.

I like the layout (i only tested it on IE because it is the only thing loaded on this computer) however the yellow appears a bit clashy in places. overall it looks great.

It tries to install bad Comet Cursor junk on your computer. Other than that it looks pretty cool.

Thumbs up

I think the colors could be improved slightly, It seems a little dark and there's only a splash of something else (a little yellow here, a little blue there). Those splashes seem out of place and akward.

The comet cursor is quite annoying, but overall, it's excellent.

The biggest thing is -- will you use it?
I've seen a lot of sites that have all the features, and technology, but no one uses it. As long as your team and your sponsors use it, this is an excellent website.

Looks good, other then a few colours. I suggest taking one colour and just using shades of it.

The site's pretty good, but I would reconsider the animated gifs in favor of a vector animation made in flash. The gear is kind of jerky. Otherwise it's pretty good.

Thanks for all the nice comments. We worked hard.
Also, thanks for the critisism, i'll get my team working on the colors and this flash. Flash was an experiment for us, cause we never have used it before.

I'm testing other browsers, and so far it works in netscape, IE, neoplanet, & msn. If anyone can tell me where it doesn't work, i'll get on it right away.

AS for the yellow, i think it looks a little wack to, but they are our team colors. Maybey blue would look better.....

BBFIRSTCHICK: when can i expect to see your site (if you make one), might be cool! [give it a shot]

to Holla: you're site is pretty cool too! you guys kept it simple and didn't complicate your lives (which is a good thing, cause you only make more work for yourself in the end). My diagnosis: looking pretty cool

OH, SORRY ABOUT THE COMET CURSOR, it's a little mistake a long time ago to make the site cooler, that we now really regret. i'm getting the code off now.

The site looks good, but what you really want is content. Hence, it's pointless to make a low/high bandwidth size, but better to just standardize the site and try to make it compliant for all OS/browsers or as many as you can... and bandwidths! I know I don't like a big site slowing down my daily web browsing.
