    What do you suggest I do to make it look more interesting?

    I think you need to redesign the sidebar navigation
    maybe move the login somewhere else, or integrate it into the header
    The main navigation for the site is almost 3/4 of the way down the page below the login box

    I don't like the logo.

    Looks outdated.

    That's better but it still needs a graphic or something.

    As suggested earlier, move the Login away from the top of the left hand side, and have the Main Navigation start at the top. I would personally suggest moving the Login box and Who's Online box to the right hand side, thus having "Navigation" - "Content" - "Login" instead of a big white space to the right hand side like you currently do.

    The header almost blends with the background, try integrating more images with it and maybe adding a LITTLE color. Either that or possibly use a different background color/pattern. Other than that that the navigational stuff would help a lot too. It's pretty clean/neat looking though, definitely straight forward with no bs. :bigthumb:

    it looks too... template to me.

    it would be nice to see the background more involved in the header image, or at least get rid of the contrast lines on the edges. the image itself is rather boring, too.

    maybe make the background an image instead of a color, and use some transparency on the white background... the navigation along the top would be nice as well... just like everyone else has been saying.

    if you insist on keeping the login box where it is, make it smaller so it takes up less room, maybe give it it's own background color.

    this all said, im willing to bet that this was a template in dreamweaver or something related/like that and you just plugged in what you wanted. the actual coding looks way too machine-done.

    if you're feeling adventurous, try editting the html and code yourself, you'll get a much nicer, well-rounded look when you can tweak things to your liking.
