Thanks for the nice comments, this type of design is quite tricky because you need to keep it clean and small things make a huge difference. It's still a WIP, many things will change over the next few days especially on the community side of things but it's just easier to do while the site's up. Also some of the elements on the front page like my links and resources don't work yet.

It's still not as fast as it should be. For the facebook page there's nothing there so it looks quite stupid atm, I'm doing it later tonight we just decided to do it all in one sweep and the site itself is more important.

what a nice surprise coming to simplymaya and seeing this new design.

Im a web and graphic designer and have to say, I like it.

My only slight crit would be the text on the forums that users post is ...not hard to read but not too clear. I would say a darker tone in the font colour on the lighter background would be a bit better.

Everything else is TOP!

Well done everyone at SM.

No "like" buttons, they were removed before the site went up. Again it's that thing about keeping clean design, it's very limited how much you can add before it gets cluttered or confused. The SM Facebook page will go up some time in the evening though so you all better come to Facebook and like us there

Thanks s2-speedy, it's very nice to hear from a web designer. Dave designed the whole site and I did text and tutorial pages and we had quite a few heated discussions over some elements, he always wins in the end though

We're not done with the forums yet, I'm working on them now and I was thinking the same thing as you just mentioned. That text color is reflected throughout the whole site though and it's one of the things that connects the forum and tutorial pages so it creates a nice flow and transition. It works better on white for sure, I'll mention it to David later and see what we can do with it. Should be AWESOME!

Yeah the grey font looks great on the white, its just when its on the light purple background. Its not really hard to read, just think a shade darker would be sweet. Im just being a bit picky though

The like button didn't seem to be too popular in the thread posted last week, haha. I've looked at sites that have it and I just don't get it, but I've never used Facebook up until the past few days either.

I am thinking about the grey font though, if you had bad eye sight it would probably be blending a bit too well. It's funny when you lay down the same color text on different color backgrounds how it sometimes come out looking like a completely different color, I noticed that a lot in the past few weeks.

My eye sight is not good (old age) and it is hard for me to see without glasses. A tad darker would help.........dave
