The shadow boxes around all the photos on the home page look like someone is trying to demonstrate too much programming knowledge. How many websites have you seen that display photos like that?

Look at some of the websites from the networks and major newspapers and you will see aesthetically pleasing presentation of photos.

The yellow shading on the side looks like a nice addition. Actually i have come to like that a lot. But the box around the center is still buggy. It has a shadow on the right (not necessary since a grey line would be ideal) and nothing on the left on my safari mobile browser.

Also the inbox is still showing 1 message.

Although not always one of Josh's biggest fans, I have to admit I like this design quite a bit.

Well I liked Matt's idea (the yellow shading on the side). Guess I'm losing the battle on the shadows. : - (

But really... is there even ONE website out there that uses shadows like that?

How about putting the FAQ link in bold red at the top of the page.

PS,

I like most stuff on SP, so this isn't a complaint, but the email system doesn't work.

I get a lot of emails from people, but you can't respond to them. The only way to respond to them is to find out who they are, go to their profile and send them a PM. In that case, it's easier to just use the PM system in the first place, but many members (especially new ones) don't know that if they send an email it can't be responded to.

The email feature should be deleted unless there is a way to make them "reply-able".

Thanks.
