    YMCA Website.

    We've recently finished up our site for the local YMCA affliliation.

    This was one of the largest site's we've done as of yet, and its almost all dynamic. (about 90% of the page is fed through a single php file)

    There is some -unpretty- code in the page, namely too many tables, but we were on an extremely tight time schedule and were at the time, starting to change mindsets into css-p driven sites, so we kept it safe and used tables.

    So, check it out, I'm more curious about the experience from the user-side than the design (everything our designer does knocks my socks off), so play around with it for a few minutes and let me know how you like it.

    Site looks great, and the use of colour schemes for each section helps the user to "know where the are".
    As far as usability, you might want to put in some ALT tags for images to help those who disable images. Whilst you're there..maybe put in a doctype and fix some of the other page vaildation errors. I reaslie this isn't so much of a user experience issue, but it can help with SEO and to ensure all browsers display your website relatively the same.

    The navigation drop down menus are a little hard to read.. a little fuzzy perhaps. Maybe try darkening the text, or making font size bigger.

    Looks great - good luck with it!

    After 1st impressions of wow! my girlfriend and I found it a little hard to know what to do. We didn't want to read the text in the 3 columns so it didn't stand out and was a little small & light for the background.

    After that we found the 2 small ads on the left which I take my hat off to you for. I loved them.

    Great use of images and colour (tho' maybe a little too colourfully in places). I would suggest that you make the text a little larger, darken the text on the menus and make the logo a little bigger.

    Over all v. nice
