<critique>
from the top, yer tables are a little wanky, might wanna check 'em (ex: the 'megalo' pic/cell isn't properly aligned w/the body.

2. nice CSS use, but you only need to declare it once (check yer source)

3. page width/table width is off (set tables to no more than 760 pix if yer trying to fit for 800x600).

4. you might wanna think about editing your text a bit, if this is something you are gonna want to reference professionally (ex: use of the word 'crap' is usually unprofessional).

I agree mostly with Objeck404, plus I'll add:

It's kinda bland. No colors only shades of grey are kinda boring.

It's not very professional.  i.e., get rid of the slipnot crap.

You need SOME kind of content. There's really no poing in a site that doesn't offer anything.
 
Hope that helps yah.
Peace,

set your tables widths as 'percent' instead of 'pixel'.  thats it, thats all the magik.  BTW, what are you using to create your site?

BTW-the .wav needs to go, took #### near forever to d/l (56k), which is why they almost never get used.  if you wanna use music in the site, you might wanna link an .mp3 through a flash movie (a little better file size).

instead of:
<table align="center" width="994" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" name="Body">

...for % it would be:

<table align="center" width="90%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" border="0" name="Body">

though it looks like there are some curious problems w/your page (ie. i'm playing w/the source in ultradev, but it still doesn't wanna size right; i'd rebuild the tableset, but that's just me.)

i tried to use the percentage in stead on pixel and all it did was bring the rest of the table down so its still wrong, any thing else i need ? here the code so u can see if its right.

<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">
<table width="100%" border="0" height="70">
<tr>
<td><font size="+5" face="monospace">bLaCk kNiGhT's wEb -------------------------------------</font></td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>

hey blacknot, just to let you know you cant use age as an excuse, 16 is old around here to some people. just playing with ya.

do you happen to use something such as frontpage or dreamweaver for your designs?

notepad is the ultimate in webdesign of course, but frtonpage and dreamweaver take out most of the process that is so time consuming, especially involving tables. yeah, it takes a few seconds every once in a while to fix those darn metatags in frontpage but the time you save is well worth it. I would suggest getting your hands on something like that, also 1st page , is a much cheaper, but still very good tool...

and i know for sure f2s supports ikonboards, you just use up the space pretty fast , i have mine on there, it hasnt clogged yet, ive only got like 25 members.
