  • Very cool. It looks like you've go a good thing going. At a glance, and this is just personal preference, I might try to reduce the header size some so you can get more content above the fold. I might also find a way to add more definition with the modules so it doesn't feel like a sea of text. There are a bazillion options- maybe put background color on the module headers or add more of a border- something to define the areas. Even bumping up the size of the header font might be enough. Maybe the titles as well... If you're on a 2.0 site, those CSS changes are floating around here.

    You might also want to try to do something to define the columns because they feel very tightly packed. You could use borders again- maybe just the right side of the blogs to make a dividing line or change the background colors of certain modules to make them stand out. It doesn't have to be anything crazy. I like that you've got a simple color scheme, but even changing the background of the center column to a deep gray might work. That CSS tip is around here too, for Ning 2.0. 

    Overall, it looks like it has good bones. The intent is obvious (which a lot of people biff) and I love the themed social buttons. 

    As you move forward with community building, you might also want to create a link that explains what membership means. The "About" page cracked me up, but maybe it would attract more members if you labeled it "Play with Us" or "Become a Contributor" or something... whatever resonates best with you. Also, your site description that appears on the signup page, maybe add that right above your sign up box, too. That's a very well written call to action and it may encourage more signups. 

    Anyway, I really like the vibe and the site overall. I'd just like to see the text broken up more so it can be scanned easier. Good luck to you!

    • I see what you're saying about the abundance of text. Good call. And your 'relabeling" idea is also a great idea! 

      I appreciate your feedback and your time to actually give it. Thank you.
