    I could use some color, gray is kind of dull. Did you really design all that, or is that just a template you lifted? If not, nice work!

    It's a CMS template. I agree, nice clean layout. Add some color.

    It's fine, but you could use a logo or something else going on in your banner. Also see if you can't push the donation link down to the bottom. People don't like to be asked for money first thing they see. I think that's a news article so it'll go down eventually, but maybe a perma section for it right near "affiliates"

    Needs something at the top, play around with the name at the top right corner, move it around, change its font, colour, size.

    Look at how well the logo works on this website:

    www.jackwills.com - (skip the splash)

    and its just 2 simple plain words, the right font and size can do a lot.

    And yes, colour, just find two subtle complimentary colours and work them into the design.
