Looks too.... blue and plain white. It just feels weird looking at those colours. Maybe u can add something like borders or some subtle background. :rolleyes:

Huzzah! A UK Mac forum, I didn't think any existed hence I joined this one.
Although now on registering I am unable to post! So instead I shall make my first Macland post here:
The colour scheme and logo need a rethink, otherwise it is looking interesting.

Are you getting any error messages when trying to post on Macland? WHich Forum were you trying to post in?
Am going to rethink the logo and colours in a week or two once the site is fully up and running without any bugs.

Pretty much what everyone else said, it's too blue and purple.
The logo needs more work done to it. The whole page really feels like it's just floating there. There's hardly any structure. Part of a good site is it looking like a good site. So, you've definitely got some work cut out for you.
It seems like you do have the content, so that's at least a step in the right direction.
My advice for the site, figure out what you like about the design of macs, be it the hardware, or software and base the design off of that. There's a subtle, eloquent, simplicity to macs, and you need to try to capture that for the type of site you're building.

My plan is to get all the content and technical work done this week and spend all next week looking at layout, strucure, colours and graphics. Would welcome any sugesstions though on what colour schemes you think would work.

Really don't know what to say other than... Using silver or white for a base color, would be a good start. Again going with the mac color scheme.
I'd try to stay away from the blue/white/grey/black scheme, although it looks nice it's just really over used.
What might help u is to look at several things.
They'll give you some ideas with layout, colors etc. Without actually having more on your page, there's not a whole lot of suggestions I can give a blank canvas.
