    Took a quick peek.  Your Google Ads don`t fit your website.  Not really a website I would visit.  Sorry!

    I would suggest puuting content instead of ads, moves ads to bottom or to left side if you must have them. Add why folks should join your forum on main page instead, hot topics, etc..

    Thanks guys!  When I posted it was still very raw, and I have
    updated it since by redoing the mainpage as well as the skin and I
    reworked some of the processes to make it run more smoothly. 
    Check it out and see what you think now!

    Hi Greg,
    1. I would make the text size of the blue & red text smaller.  Only someone with extreme vision trouble needs it that large. 
    2. I am using an 800x600 monitor resolution, and the red & blue text laps under the right-hand column.
    3. I wouldn`t have Google Ads at the top of the front page.  It makes it seems like you`re more interested in making a few cents than in providing a valuable website. 
    4. The header is not that great.  Rather than "Welcome to Electorials.com" I would suggest just "Electorials" with "your online soapbox"  underneath and slightly bigger.  And maybe be more specific, like "a community political soapbox."  You don`t need the "online" part because that`s obvious.
    5. After fixing up the design a bit, you can start adding more content, like maybe some articles.  That will attract search engines and visitors.
    I guess that`s enough to get you going.  When you`ve fixed it up a bit, let us know, and we can give more pointers.

    Thank you very much danae!  I will work on getting all of that
    fixed up and then back to the drawing board (SuN)!  I am thinking
    about approaching a few people I know to write blogs for my site (of
    course politically oriented)  as well as try to contact as many
    politicians as I can to write something, get interviewed or just add us
    on to the list of people they send press releases to, any suggestions
    for that?

    I would give it a 5, get some color in there

    Thank you all very much for your feedback!  I have taken much of
    it into consideration and made many changes!  Do you think if I
    add too much more color it  would make the site look cluttered?

    Thank you,
    Greg Caplan
