Yeah, the pattern and skew on enter the site make it hard to read and it's not professional looking. Hehe, not that our site cares about being professional, but looking credible is good. I remember before I started my dreads I kept googling questions and dreadlockssite kept popping up, but I ignored it because the site didn't look that great. Finally, after the fifth time I caved and read the forums.
Anyway, plain bold red would stand out more than the current pattern/texture.
-Placing the ads under "enter the site", under the image gallery. That way they see the pics first and makes them want to go in.
-Making the background image stay in place. It's easier to read the text that way. Looks better too.
hmm u thinl the image is hard? i think it stands out a faq and join links make sence tho.. gimme a min
MzElaineous said:The three columns looks great. However, "enter the site" does not. It's difficult to read. If it were a solid image and not skewed it would look better and easier to find and click. Or even instead of an image it was just a bold red link. It's common to see on home pages, just a sentence and a link.

Or even bold red links, listing forums, pictures, videos, etc. underneath enter the site or on the header.
And a Join Dreadlockssite to sign up for an account link might be nice for those that want to join right away...placed under the "we do not try to sell you loctician services, or dreads products" and maybe a "Facebook for dreadheads" mention would be cool.
Also, a link to FAQs, because newbies asking questions that are already answered run rampant.
