Thoughts on the new visual look for my site?

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

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.

Ace.

Makes me want to lick it.

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

clicking the arrows and the layout gets a little messed up. Using Firefox 3.

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!

Neat, isn’t this the approach youtook when first launching the site?

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.

Similar idea. I’ve had my site around since 2006 though

Yeah, I need to work on that

do you own

i keep getting emails emailed to this account for some reason.

Under Sign Up Now, completely is spelled incorrectly.

No. I own
/* */
(for the CheckBot service on the site). Do you actually have
/* */
?

lulz. you’re the first person to catch that. i’ll udpate it.

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.

Its now your full time gig?

Getting enough donations?
Pretty fucking cool man. Congrats.

ccb stole my account numbers, that is why he can afford to quit work

Well, the site’s making about 1/3 what my previous salary was. I’m giving myself 6-8 months to see if I can get it to what my old salary was. If I haven’t come close by then I’ll probably start looking for a full time job again

Your credit card just funded my all inclusive trip to Tahiti!

i’m not a designer

When I was entering a transaction through the gadget on the dashboard page, I tried to create a "Clothes" category. After typing clothes and hitting enter, the page just refreshed with no category, and everything I had typed in before deleted.

Just thought you should know.

Nope. someone else must have got it

i keep getting emails from it for some reason

I don’t actually collect any sensitive informaiton. All data on the site is entered manually. I don’t actually hit the bank websites and pull transactions.

the front page is a little too busy
my eyes were dashing everywhere trying to gather what the site is about.
instead the design should guide my eyes and attention to the relevant points of your web app.

I would like to be a beta tester for your iPhone app though
