Critique of private web site, please.

By CharlieSpencer ·
Hey, y'all! Any suggestions on how to improve the readability or layout of this site? I'm primarily concerned with the page below; any of the linked pages are of secondary concern.

http://www.switchracing.com/index3.html

I'm not concerned with passing W3C tests or the cleanliness of the HTML. The audience for this site is less than 30 people, and all can display the current version of this home page without any problem.

Thanks in advance.

Edited - and I already intend to lose the 'checkerboard slide' effect when the page loads.

Uh, oil in the Gulf? The Obama administration? E. coli? Hitler? I'm a dumb-*** who was wondering why the text didn't get converted to a link?

Yeah, let's go with that last one.

Thanks.

I split it into two pages. Leave the top on the home page and move the weekly results to another one?

put a table of links or something on the front page that would go to the others...

Maybe put a "race" pic or something as a background image on the front page.

Fade it.

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Race pic background

Fade it hard. I've used what might be considered a 'busy' photo, faded hard, as a web page background. Looks great if you get the fade right.

That certainly would "clean up" the landing page.

by seanferd In reply to Say, what if...

Probably a good idea for "first impression" purposes if you are expecting new users. If you don't expect many new users and your current users like it the way it is, don't bother unless it makes the site easier to maintain.

No, it would actually make it harder. I don't get more than a half-dozen new users each February. I'm just looking for ways to better relate the information my viewers say they want to see.
