    I believe that screen shots with narrative should take up the bulk of it, but we should also have a list/narrative block for "WHAT'S HOT!". This block could hold links and/or info on such things as current Constitutional/CoL polls.

    Hows this?

    Red is the main colour as it is Japan's colour. The other colour makes colour harmony with the red.

    EDIT: How the nav would work: when you hover over the nav text, the navagation would slide out horizontaly.

    EDIT: Oh, do you like the design?

    @msz4 - That's one of the preview settings that I think Dreamweaver uses. The "latin" is a placeholder.
    @Fionn - Tone it down a bit. Not everyone is a great (or professional) web designer. It would be better to say, "It looks nice, but maybe you can try this..." without resorting to flaming.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to step on your territory. I just had an idea and drew it up in Paint. I am going to post a redone version Monday addressing the "sterile" and "theme" issues. I advocate "clean" design, written mainly with CSS, as it has faster loading times, better user usibility and I like how it looks better then graphic heavy designs.

    It is interesting that this was your response after what you said earlier in the thread:
    If you still have a grudge against me becuase of my earlier comments, I am sorry, I did not know that designer was part of the community. If I knew you where part of the community I would not have told you that I found your designs were ugly. Please forgive me.

    Happy designing!

    i apologize, you caught me on a bad day. A little constructive criticism. you can have a graphical diplay with CSS as much as having a sterile design much like you had for more info go to cssZenGarden.com. you middle idea is very good tho, and seeing as how with my being in school it would make sense for you to be on the design team to help me update the site. perhaps you can focus on developing the supporting pages. My main index page is still in development as i still need to some minor tweeking to the menu's and such

    There should be a website for the present demogames (civII and CivIII), as well as a history (in fancy RPG-style writing, of course) of all past demogames.
