Ok you posted here so expect some criticism...

I was wondering why it loaded so slow... for starters the image sizes you use are ginormous. Your body background alone is 1.2megs! That is freakin HUGE.

The spinning "Now Recruiting" looks really old school.

The right side where members online are listed looks very jumbled.

The menu system with white hovers... going from totally dark theme to a white menu needs some work.

I do like the animated banner at the top though.

Sorry guy but when you post here you have to expect opinions, good or bad.

Just a few words please dont take it heart but more as constuctive critism.

Page load time is high most likely caused by your background image filesize.

Not really liking the colour scheme, that shade of green looks cheap and too in your face.

There alot of blank space at the bottom and right, might be an idea to move your teamspeak viewer to the right menu below your chatbox should save your users some scrolling.

These are only my opinions, what looks bad for me might look great for another, its just down to personal taste and opinion.

Regards

Andy

That alone is a HUGE improvement. What program are you using to save your images? If Photoshop, use Save For Web and unless you need transparency, use a JPG at medium.

Fix the login box... there's a div, <div id="onlineinfodhtmltooltip"></div> that's blank pushing the contents to the right?

The scrolling banner at the top isn't working?

The DCMA image at the bottom is broken.

You have your bullets set to "lite". Did you know there is a "dark" setting for that? Dark background bullet images won't look so jaggy on a black background.

Put this at the top of your theme.php: define("IMODE", "dark");
