Does my site suck?


I'd like to know if I've done an acceptable job updating my school's SAACS (Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society) page. I accepted the responsibility of running the site (m33 == t3h w3bm4s+4r!!!!11) at the last meeting, so it's still in its nascent stages.
Given that it's not in its final state, do you have any suggestions on how I could improve the layout?
You can find it by typing "uo saacs" into google.com. It should be the first link.
The google thing is so that I'm in compliance with the rules about posting my own URL. I hope the mods find it indirect enough to fit the letter and spirit of the rules.

Edit: you could also try the www button below.

It looks good!

My only suggestion would be to enclose the entire page into a single table of a fixed width - say 620 pixels. This will allow you to control how the browser preceisely renders the pages. Couldn't find any problems, all the links seem to work....

BTW, have a look at my B.S. alma matters SAACS page - http://www.csuchico.edu/saacs/ They use frames though, which I Hate....

Welcome to the wonderful world of chem! Going to grad school? What specialty?

I'm just a frosh right now, so it's too early to tell.
Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't like how the centered text looked off-center compared to the rest of the text.

I don't think posting the link would have been frowned on by any of the mods. They just don't want people to advertise, this is different because you are asking for advice and help.

One word: black backgrounds. Whoops I meant two words.

I PMed Maddman before I posted and he said that I coudn't post the URL. He suggested that I PM any interested members, but I figured that most people would be too lazy to bother.
My post hasn't been edited, so I guess it's passed their test.

I'm not offended, but could you tell me why you think that? I'd like to know how I could improve it.

You can always enter it as the Home page in your user settings then tell people to click the WWW button below your post. That is what it is there for

I was hoping that nobody would say that. I thought of it after the current post had been up a while. No reason not to add it to my profile.
