    Hi and welcome Jason

    I took a look at the code. That is where I usually start. And I have a problem with the following:

    <table border=0 cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <TBODY>
    <tr>







    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <P align=center>&nbsp;</P>
    <P>&nbsp;</P></TD></TR>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2" width="100%" height="30" align="middle">
    <font face="verdana" size="1" >
    <hr size="2" color="#000000">
    Copyright 2000 All Baseball<hr size="2" color="#000000">
    </font>
    </td>
    </tr></TBODY></TABLE>

    Something was created here and then removed. It does not seem to affect the display on IE and the PC but no gurantee with any other combos of hardware and software.

    The marginheight and marginwidth are deprecated values. Not a problem that they are here, just an alarm. I have been cautioning about this but it seems to cause no problem and I have heard that there is a 2px border that this will remove from the page. No further info.

    About the site:

    The site is very plain.

    There is no definition as to the purpose of the site.

    The big question is will you get visitors. Answer Yes. Will they return: Only if you define the purpose of the site with something they want and then provide that information in a way that attracts.

    There will be other reviews of your site.

    Thank you for your help with the other reviews.

    peace

    Edshuck already pointed out some of the important things.
    I'll repeat some of them.

    >The site is too plain. It's almost shocking. You'll need:
    -graphics
    -more and brighter colors

    >Put the events in the 'All Baseball' table on date with the latest news on top.

    >The date says "February 4, 101" Y2K-bug?

    >Make the menu a bit more exciting

    >Tell something about All Baseball on the frontpage

    Win. 98/IE 5/56K:Fast loading. What bothers me the most is that there are more ads than content! Also, update your copyright! It's 2001 now, baby!! You might want to make the message board match the design and colors of the main page.

    the first impressions were , thers nothing here no design or anything.when i clicked on photo, it brought up something in yahoo, is that right?your first page needs something to tell people what they are looking at.ask a designer to help you with your layout, basball it could be very funky and modern,sorry to be a little harsh but am being really honest.keep trying.

    IE 5.5Windows 2000 ProCableThe site looks very plain. The menu table is nice but I would try adding some more text on the front page. I would also put a logo on the site to take away from the adbanner, which I assume you must have at cjb.net.My advice is to get creative, have some fun and spruce it up a little. Andwise.

    Clean looking but I think your Nav bar could be snazzied up a bit say some simple rollovers in 3-d box with colour or something. Why can't you post the photos on the site. Seems a bit silly to link to your yahoo club to show a few photos.

    The design you are using is very simple, which is not a bad thing. I'm not sure about linking to yahoo in your main navigation bar is such a good idea - maybe if you could do it in such a way that the visitors know they are going to be brought to yahoo if they click on the link? The drawings are the main strenght of the site. If you capitalized on them a bit more and made them a more prominent feature, it could improve the site. The game page wouldn't load for me and I got a few errors - nothing new.Aonghus
