As you may have noticed by this point, we’ve fiddled with the look and feel of the site a bit—a new top banner here, a new left-hand sidebar there. Hope you all like it. We’ll be slowly making other changes in the coming weeks/months. Let us know if you spot any problems, though; after all, you are our beta testers. (And volunteers, at that. You’re all so generous!)

Glad to be of service as your testers! Come back to ATL! Bring JoCo with you!
The beta testing was definitely enjoyable! And I must second the above comment. 🙂
Hey guys – so I think the logo on the right is fantastic – I love the “Music. Comedy. Occasional nuns and pirates” bit. I think that’s really funny and I think it’s an accurate description if you’re trying to keep it short and sweet.
There is one thing that I would add, however, and that is the following: the horizontal and vertical navigation bars and the subsequent three vertical columns are perhaps a little much…the eye doesn’t know what to look at first. But that’s just me being picky (and I know that my own website has three vertical columns but soon it will not 🙂 ).
See you March 7.
I do like the whole top of the page, but the vertical menu and the horizontal menu can be a little bit much. I don’t know which one I like moar.
If could be picky I would say that your website has neither valid HTML nor CSS – see http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?profile=css21&warning=0&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.paulandstorm.com%2F and http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.paulandstorm.com%2F
My site has invalid CSS, for now, but my HTML is good to go.
Also I very heartily dislike the way you have basically the page content squeezed in the middle of the page on top of a bunch of blue white space. When someone with a smaller resolution opens your page they get a horizontal scrollbar. That’s bad, you need to avoid that. The way to avoid that is to set widths in percents, and not numbers.
So we’ve shaded the toolbars slightly to differentiate them from the main content; and are working on making the body width scalable. Keep your comments/suggestions comin’.
I am still getting a horizontal scrollbar on smaller resolutions. Might I recommend the Firefox Web Developer plugin? https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/60
