A few questions/suggestions:
1) Why do some of the pages use frames, and the others use tables?
Some of the pages have a separate table of contents then the one that appears on the top of every page; I made frames so they can skip from one page to another faster.
2) Except for the navigation bar on top, the pages don't seem to have a very strong consistency among them. You should keep the colors and look of each page more constant.
The look is for the most part the same. I used same font size and style, and tabled everything about evenly, but I used a different color for every section so the viewer sees something new every time they go from one section to another. I wanted to make the site feel a bit more worm and alive. I used 4 deferent colors (one for each section) so the user feel more excited when browsing around.
Did anyone else feel the different colors are a turnoff?
I like the site design... The only thing i noticed is that on a few pages, like the car audio directory for instance, the bars in the top frame go all the way to the end of my browser, and the bars inside the bottom frame dont go over as far. If i was designing the site i would have them go equally as far, although it doesnt look "wrong" or anything the way it is.
What I think is missing from your front page is what your club is about. The first thing that catches my eye is free email service, but not Car Audio!
And finally I think you should do some work on the top of your pages (unprofessional look). Move the logo up and have the navigation (home,mail,web directory etc) below and also put some graphic instead of text links.
Everything else seems quite good.
If I changed anything, it would be the top menu - it needs some pizzazz. In Netscape, it is especially bland.
The only other issue I have is that the pages don't share the same 'look and feel' as they could. I would alter the design a bit so that each page follows the same style. This would give your site a bit more cohesion.
I like the concept of this site ALOT! Layout was well done on the opening page but upon arriving at the site I really didn't know what it was about. What I did see first was free email. I would have liked to have seen information about your site and what you had to offer me first or why I should sign up You should consider having a consistent theme throughout the site. Personally I don't think you need to advertise for IE and Netscape down at the bottom. If you are going to recommend something make it something related to your site content.
I toured your site, looks professional. Curious why you have different colors, ie, blue on first page, then a red on web directory, music yellow and the other pages different to. It seems not consistant, and maybe they aren't part of your site.
