I am not a fan of the site design. Red on white is one thing, and minimalistic is another, but this does neither well.

The top left logo image.. that should be clickable and goes back to 'home'.

The big text, with same text size header, for the posts are not good looking.

The Q&A doesn't make sense to have the buttons on the bottom and the answers appear above it.

There's also something busted in those answers.. it looks like there is a brief attempt to load an xboxone or ps4 image, which expands the area, but that disappears.

The fact you are trying to hawk some sort of DDoS attack system is silly.

The thick red outline on everything isn't attractive.

The top left logo that has a bevel (and nothing else does) is odd looking.

Well, it seems as though I have some work to do. Just letting you know that I've only into this for about 1.5 years. This is the first website I've "domained". Either way, thanks for the feedback. I kinda wanted the feel of the site to be "next-gen"... I don't know but people apparently don't like it. I'll get to work on it today. And once again, thanks for the feedback.

I have one question, I want my theme to be red on white. Do you think it would be a good idea to try and make it work or just scrap it?

In what way was this supposed to be 'next gen', or how were you intending this to be 'next gen'?

I want my theme to be red on white.

First - don't use #FF0000 or #FFFFFF. Use a variation of red a less harsh color.. and white doesn't have to be white-white.. it can be off white.
Next - think about throwing a texture in there.

Why is it silly? :( It's not a "DDoS attack system", it's a regular DDoS client like LOIC. But I guess I'll stop working on that... because if one person doesn't like it them it's possiable a whole lot of people won't like it.

What I mean by next-gen is for it not to be like the good ol' wordpress site or blog site in general. But I'm starting to think it's not such a good idea.

I figure you should put your time into be constructive and not destructive.. let alone the implications of going around trying to be l33t in shutting folks sites down.

Generally acceptable layouts are not a damper. I mean you are not going to be 'next gen' and have sites read from the bottom up are you? Why not? Most folks don't operate with sites that way.

Where exactly is the difference? Isn't a "regular" DDoS client an attack system by definition, regardless of what the intended purpose of it is?

Kind of like claiming that a gun isn't a weapon when it's carried by a police officer, since it's intended to protect rather than harm people.

This site hurts my eyes to look at. That shade of red is burning into my retinas
