I have gotten soooo many mixed opinions lately, and I was wondering what you guys thought of the current style. Please be brutally honest. I'm not talking about "It's missing a link in a convenient place" or little functional things that can easily be changed/added/removed. I'm talking about the color scheme, the main navigation, the aesthetics, if it's pleasing to the eye to look at for a long time, etc.
Personally I'm never bothered so much by the user interface as long as the site content is presented in a nice and simple way that is readable by everyone. So far I think you are doing fine in the implementation of the user interface.
My biggest worry is always in the speed and performance of the site; for example make a comparison between yahoo and gmail.
1. Yahoo wins by far when it comes to user interface implementation
2. Gmail wins by far when it comes to speed and performance
Personally I think daniweb is doing well in both speed and user interface. My only suggestion is that you do away with the ads for registered users.
