    Nice start Charles.  Not sure exactly what it is but i can imagine a lot of great maps and great digests are in your future.  Good luck!

    • Hi JFarrow

      Thanks for checking my site out.
  • Woah. This is cool. I've never seen a Ning Network used this way.The second I landed on your site, I totally got the concept and knew what you were doing (which is oddly rare with Ning sites) and it was easy to find the info I needed to. 

    The only feedback I have is that you may want to simplify your menu. Ditch about half of it because that will confuse most players. The fewer options people have, the less they have to think and the happier/ more likely to follow through they are. The drop down on the about us tab is especially bewildering to me. I saw the "payment" link and went "Aha! They want money." Which you don't, not from your players, but I only know that because I cared enough to click and read. Most people won't. Try to put only essential links in your main menu, so it's intuitive. If you need to, you can create pages with more links after the menu link... you know, maybe rather than breaking it down in the menu, have a "play with us" and a "work with us" tab. The work with us tab would break down all the ways people can partner with you.

    Also, the home tab and sign up tabs are redundant... just remove them, IMO. The "My profile" isn't beneficial to non-members... does Ning 3 let you hide tabs from non-members? If so, you should. Contact might be better under "about." And, while photos seem to be an integral part of your games, I think you'd do better to add a photo stream to the home page (You have one but it's called prizes?) and include a link to upload photos below the profile button- again, for members only if possible. Hmm... unless your goal with photos is for you to have people look at yours for the sake of getting clues. In which case, maybe you should have that link go directly to your "Game Master's" photos rather than the general pool of photos. 

    Anyway, those are just my thoughts. I really like the site overall. It looks like it will be fun for members and profitable as well.
