Proper evaluation requires dummy content.

Was more looking at the layout. I am going to be busy with work related stuff for much of the next 2 weeks so I only had yesterday evening to hammer out this look and feel. The newsposts ARE content though. they ARE fed from the forum.

Looks nice I like the dark theme. This is the only odd thing I noticed.

The images gets unaligned when chrome is not full screened. Not really a big deal but little things like that bug me.

looks cheap, too simple, you can do a lot better, use more ingame screenshot to make it, when you don't have to do everything from scratch it's easy to make something nice, take a nice screenshot and do something upon that

Ignore snoop's observations. Why? because your window has to be smaller than 800 px wide for the image to do that. An instant fix is to just center the image.

You can't account for everyone. Even netbooks will fit it comfortably. Hell, my phone fits it comfortably (800x480 px).

Looks nice, I like it. I would like it more if the forums matched the look, but that's just me being picky.

The logo thing... let it go. Those are newsposts. They will be subject to change.

The === thing, that is a result of him copy pasting the readme file in the download.

The multiple links to the actual post... ehh, whatever, imo you're being a bit pedantic about it

Nice critique knorke, I will definitely consider that stuff before I do the new version.

The news posts are just old forum posts fed in with no formating. Which is why there are 3 gundam rts logos on the page. I plan on doing a bit of retroactive clean up later on but for now it is just cool beans to me that I can even feed posts from the forum.
