    Just released a new look to my site. Thoughts on ways to improve it?

    http://www.clearcheckbook.com

    The old site was a lot darker and much more text heavy. I was trying to go for a "easy on the eyes" approach as well as focusing on graphics to explain the site.

    Looks a thousand times better. Slideshow only breaks if you click a button while it's in the middle of a transition..

    it looks nice

    I think it's taking a little bit too long to load between the tabs, and it's pretty much white for a noticeable amount of time, I'd cut that load time in half to make it more user friendly

    I'll have to play with that slide script a bit. I kinda hacked one together that i found online and it does have a few issues. Thanks for all the support though!

    make the sign up now button higher on the page.

    that is what you want people to do, put it at the top, I have to scroll down to see it on my laptop screen.

    No. I own [email protected] (for the CheckBot service on the site). Do you actually have [email protected]?

    honestly, hire a designer. it looks clean, but it's missing that "designer" touch.

    If you'd like to work for free, i'll gladly "hire" you. until then, i don't have the money to hire anyone.
