Hi everyone, just lookiing for feedback on what is good and what could be better.

I figured out that the board displayed the way I intended for Firefox, but not Internet Explorer, during some testing.  It appears that all of those issues are fixed and it should appear the same in both browsers.  Now moving on to checking it in some others.

I set the default color for the graphics to golden, but left it open if you prefer one of the other five colors.  To change that, you click on one of the color swatches in the top right corner.

A thing I found, and this really effects those using 800 by 600 resolution (or less) and anyone who looks at the site in less than a full screen window, is that the Badmovies.org logo in the top right tends to compress the friendly user interface in the top left.  I am thinking that a quick resizing of the logo or chopping off the .org on the end, might be in order to make the graphic shorter.

Working on moving the film comments system over to this board as well, because that puts everything in one place.  One of the SMF gents has offered to look at what I need and possibly create a script (I am not a programmer, though sometimes I stumble my way through it) that would migrate everything quickly.

I have the smiley set in place. I might add a few more, but do not want to go overboard.

I also have a group of badmovies avatars that I collected.  A few more of those might be coming.

Anyway, please let me know what is good and what is bad.

Just FYI, it looks fine in Mozilla (non-Firefox).

Looks fine here at my end.
The only thing I'd say that I don't care for are the big red & yellow buttons on the main page that signify if there's new posts.
They're not the greatest looking buttons. 

It would be cool if you could make them color-changeable slime drops instead.

They remind me of those candy buttons I used to eat as a kid.  Remember those?  They came on a sheet of paper and you picked them off one at a time.

Drat, I had made those myself and was proud of my limited skills.  I will look into something more original, though the limited number of colors for a gif are a factor.  Maybe I can bribe my friend Todd into doing some graphics (that is what he does and he is great - he created the front page logo in about 10 minutes).
