    Lots of whitespace in the header, very tight spacing in the section list. I think you should work on balance a bit more.
    i was considering having it move across the screen if you touched on it like a smartphone or tablet or something and reveal some buttons and shit, but idk what

    I think you should focus primarily on the desktop experience.

    Could be fine if you just moved the mouse up there instead of ~touching~.

    I think you should have something in between the logo and avatar, preferably some sort of navigation.

    Where does that back arrow in the header go?

    Edited:


    Slightly more progress, started pulling data from Hexxeh's api to populate the design, not sure if i should continue
    How does it behave on lower resolutions? (~1000-1200px wide)
    I'd also experiment with making the FP logo smaller, and moving it into the header bar. Then move the left-most section up so it's vertically aligned with the top of the other two sections. I'm not saying you should, it'd just be interesting to see how it compares.

    Design around the content. Don't start adding unnecessary content just to fill the design.

    it shouldn't actually be shown in the root of the site, but it was there for navigation. the idea was that, when you went through multiple sections and then finally to a thread, you would see a path of these, and to go back to any one area you click the arrow

    world's best php database helper:

    <?php
    
    class DB {
      private $pdo;
    
      public function __construct($dsn, $user, $password) {
        $this->pdo = new PDO($dsn, $user, $password);
      }
    
      public function __get($query) {
        return $this->$query();
      }
    
      public function __call($query, $params) {
        $stmt = $this->pdo->prepare($query);
        $stmt->execute($params);
        return $stmt->fetchAll(PDO::FETCH_CLASS, "stdClass");
      }
    }
    
    $db = new DB("mysql:dbname=testdb;host=127.0.0.1", "root", "");
    
    $db->{"INSERT INTO users (username) VALUES (?)"}("admin");
    $db->{"INSERT INTO users (username) VALUES (?)"}("luser");
    
    foreach($db->{"SELECT * FROM users"} as $row) {
      echo "#$row->id: $row->username\n";
    }
    

    that rocks

    I use it quite often as well to see what people have uploaded ( my subscriptions ). But I really want recommended videos to disappear, apart from the fact that it's beyond inaccurate it juses waste so much space.

    I really dislike how the design is so narrow, they can take advantage of some more space and present content more effectively.

    Recommended videos are like youtube ads though, don't think they are going any time soon.

    I'm going to be keeping the same layout they have for the homepage (but obviously make it much prettier)
    So, a 3 column lightbox at the top for a few images, and a tidy text field below for content.

    On the car sales page, I intend to have each car as a tile with a more info option that will open up a modal window. (much like an ecommerce website)

    I'm undecided about the rest, I've yet to think about those.

    I have a headache right now and that background makes my head hurt even more. I think you should try it without noise or with a different colour perhaps.

    I don't think that's enough.
    There is about 0 contrast between the text and the background, its giving me a migraine trying to read it.

    I can't change the color because that's the color scheme that I've been using for the YouTube channel and anything related to it

    Take away the noise, remove indented text shadow and already looks better.

    Consider using a backing for the text then, because it really does need to contrast again something.

    you could also add a background behind the text itself.



    just with better padding and not whatever weird CSS you already have going on

    (margin-right: 17px .. really??)

    I tried that, it looks bad. What's wrong with margin-right: 17px? It's just for spacing between the content boxes

    Preaching to the choir here, but make sure that text-align: center never sees the light of day again!

    How do you add your own css, is there a chrome plugin? ( that's permanently saved, not firebug )
