Currently, it looks a little bit empty. And the heading graphics could be sharper.

So, enough critized  :yes

I like the design (it's really gorgeous)

And I'm really curious how this site will look when it's finished.

I do appreciate the criticism. Any ideas on how to make is less 'empty' feeling? I noticed it, too, but it's probably partially the sparse Home page and lack of people... and the headings were pulled straight from the original movie, so I can't do much for that xD I'll try though!

I'm glad you like it. I was worried about the design feeling... Dull, a bit 'dank' in a way. The background bothered me for that reason, but I wanted it to retain the feel of a warren. Any and all criticism will be appreciated!

It looks good, the text on the buttons could be just a little bit sharper though.

Yeah the text is a little unclear when the buttons are not highlighted.

I have it changed. They're now black when left at rest.

It looks pretty decent, although (as Silverwolf said) the heading graphics could be sharper.

I prefer the movie's settings. Otherwise I'd change them... Anyone think they have a way to sharpen them? I'd take it in a heartbeat if they do.

Actually, I was thinking you meant the other forum on proboards...or even possibly Inle-rah's old warren (if anyone besides myself was a longtime member of that forum).

Like the others have said, using the movie images is fine...I don't think anybody's complaining about that.  Blowing them up so they blur is something I'm not sure fits.  It clashes with the crispness of the other images you use (e.g. the pictures of Hazel and Bigwig).  Even when I was creating banners for this place, I realized I had to be careful what I used as the animation for the tv series is far sharper and less lush than the film.  Its not been easy to mix, but I have tried to do so.

Yeah, I've tried to fix it, but it seems that Webs is doing that. I've found an HD version of the movie, so I'll try making my banners from there to see if that helps.

Yeah, if possible always use the best source.  My dvds are all I use for my stuff.

Alright, I've made some updates -
- Better-quality headings (But may be replaced with series headings)
- Easier-to-use chat system: Also easier to manage
- New chats on all three warren pages, Hlessil page, and home page
- New warren! Welcome to Dark Haven! (Heading needs finished)
- New sections in the forums: Dark Haven is now under Series RP and Mixed RP.


Also, it seems kind of like the expected thing is that you only visit one fansite at a time. I don't know if I'm just weird, but I don't only visit one. ^^'
