    For the most part a nice clean layout, nothing looks particularly cramped.

    I would do more in separating the programming tutorials from the image tutorials. I know it's meant to be alphabetical, but it's kinda disconcerting to go from Bryce to C++.

    The blue background to "5 latest tutorials" is nice, which makes me wonder why you didn't choose it as well for the background to "Tutorial Chimp - Your #1 Resource for Tutorials". I think it'd do a lot to consolidate the layout if you used the nicer blue/white for the header.

    Nice code too

    The light baby blue and pink colors; and the logo makes the site look like its aimed at kids at first glance. Perhaphs you should consider more "serious" (or darker) colors?

    Also, the items in the drop-down menu next to the "search" field (at the top) should be sorted in alphabetical order.

    I think it looks great , really suits its purpose. couple of things i will comment on , the username and password fields dont seem to be lined up, u should fix that . maybe get rid of the ad on the right , i dont know but for me personnaly when i see a site with ads all evrywhere like top , sides bottm , it makes me think the site owner is just trying to make money, but when there is just one or 2 ads they are less noticable and gives a more professional look. thats just my view , if ur making descent money on the ads then leave them all.

    Hi there,

    Nice site.

    I think you need to work on the colours. I've counted 5 different colours - stick with 2-3.
    For ex. You have two totally different shades of blue for hte nav bar and 5 latest tutorials. You also have two different styles. The nav is a gradient and the 5 latest is an inner glow. Try sticking with teh same styles and colorus to unite the page.

    I also have to say, I'm not a fan of the pink background. It's way too bright and distracting. You might want to change the colour of the chimp also.

    Other than that, I like the layout and general look of the site. It looks a teeny bit cramped though, with all the text.

    Cheers,

    My first impression was that it was a little overwhelming, tho' it did get me interested straight away. I wouldn't suggest making any changes, but I would be carefully in you develop in any further.

    I've seen sites based on tutorials and information hundreds of times, as I'm sure many people using this forum have, but I did think your site ad a curtain quality feel to it. So, good work.

    I would fix the miss-aligned input boxes in the top left (FF 1.5.0.6, XP) but other that - I like it.

    yeah the color of tutorialchimp is hated worldwide :P, but i wish to fix this hopefully in version 2 when the site gets big or perhaps even earlier.i wish to make some more seriouse colors and basically work on aligning texts correctly as well as structure wise,

    thanks for the wise comments guys

    + Nice design
    + good overview
    + structure of the pages
    + not to much ads

    - the BG color, I don't like it to much. but maybe it's me

    Good website though

    The design is a bit too childish.

    i see,well yeah that's what i was going for seeing as if though it is a chimp? lol..

    but i guess people are interested in more bold colorscheme,and structure so that's what i will have to look out for in V2.

    Hmm, well the images dont load for me, at all.
    Also it looks like you just stole all of P2Ls categories.. but I'm not sure.
    Otherwise its pretty ok, you could try changing the colours though. But without the images its hard to judge.

    I had the same problem as Aaroniza with none of the images loading. When they're back in place I'll offer up some suggestions.
