Hi Snippa:

I like the unusual perspective and I'd like to hear more about this game you're developing. Genre? Style? Etc?

Final Avatar. I had to salute one of my favorite films of all time.

End of line...

Great idea, but holy moses it takes me 30 minutes just to figure out what palette I want!

That behavior is indicative of a virus/trojan infestation. Most likely your whole HD is infected. If you'll do me a small favor I can tell you for sure what's going on with your machine.

Download hijackthis:

Run it and select "Do a system scan and save a logfile"

It will produce a text file... copy all of it and post it in this thread. I'll examine it and we'll go from there.

Stephie--welcome to Pixelation!

As you can see, a number of comments have been made about the pinkness of your site. :) Well, I happen to like pink very much and I like the HYPER-CUTE style you've adopted in your design.

Having said that, I'd like to offer you some helpful tips since you asked for advice. To illustrate my point, I'd like you to look up at the top of this page, you'll find the Pixelation logo. You'll see that the first half of the word is colored off-white on a dark bluish-gray background. You'll see that the letters of the last half are a very dark (approaching black) charcoal color on a gradient of lighter hues.

Are you with me so far, Stephie?

It's very easy to read, isn't it? And that's not just because of the largeness of the type face. You will find that dark letters on a light background are the easiest to read. You will also find the opposite to be true--light characters on a dark background are also easy to read.

In both cases, it is the contrast between characters and background that make for good document design--therefore, it's a good rule to follow when designing a website that you want people to visit and revisit. I think it might be a good idea to think about that while you look over your site.

You'll find that there is a low amount of contrast in your graphics. That makes it very difficult to read--which is why people are saying it hurts their eyes. Still with me? The way I see it, you really have two options. Darken the pink to an ultra-dark fuschia, or darken the background until that pink shows up. Either way, hon, you need more contrast.

Let me know if this tip was helpful at all, and reply back with more questions!

Again, welcome.

At your service,

Bo - thanks for the observations. Still working on squiddypop.

Okay, here's the new sunset after taking what I could from Helm's example and working it into the piece.
