I've just re-done The Skeptic Times website and I was wondering what people thought about how it looks.

I tried to keep it simple, you know basic colors, white, blue (2 shades 1 for links 1 for text) and yellow. Anyhow, I'd appreciate people looking at it and telling me if it looks nice or decent or whatever you're supposed to say.

Also if you see any errors or something, point it out. For now the HEALTH and HUMOR sections don't work, I am still in the process of adding them.

Thanks :)

Ooh, it looks lovely. Classic and not tacky. But I'd add a banner, y'know, such as the one SFN has; something simple but to add a touch of color. If you want, I can make you one

I like it. But I would recommend using something other than the blue background. It is a little difficult to read. I think a site should make easy reading a top priority.

Also agree with Siberia, a snazzy, eye-catching (but not garish) banner would be good.

It looks good. However, when I tried to get to the 'humor' part and the 'health' part, they didn't work (page could not be found). You might want to look at that again.

Yes those currently are not up. And I am thinking of changing "health" to "Articles" so it can be more broad.

Great idea Siberia, however it can be improved upon: Instead of putting up a banner "such as the one" SFN has, why not a banner with "Click here to go to SFN"?

I can't access the link right now. And I don't get any answers when I ping it.

There are three ways to get to it:

The Skeptic Times Official Website
This has ONLY the main page, the links don't work as they link to the main site
This too only has the main page, the links all go to the site

So if you want to see just how the front page is done, you can visit the other two links they should be up.

Well, it started out that I couldn't access the forum. Now I can't get on to any of the site...

Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

Well I haven't banned any IP at either site, so I don't know what problem you are facing.

The main site, The Skeptic Times is down right now because I think my older brother is working on it. That's why no one can access that, as for the other two and the forum - I really don't know.

Ok well, nothing works for me anymore. Your website just doesn't like my computer I guess...

Same here. I can't view the site at all.

Or maybe your computer doesn't like the website...

Why continue? Because we must. Because we have the call. Because it is nobler to fight for rationality without winning than to give up in the face of continued defeats. Because whatever true progress humanity makes is through the rationality of the occasional individual and because any one individual we may win for the cause may do more for humanity than a hundred thousand who hug their superstitions to their breast.

The Skeptic Times is back up after being down for a while. So for those of you that haven't been able to get access to the other sites, for whatever, reason should be able to get to the actual home page now.
