    I like it. Nice and clean looking site. The title banner needs to be clearer though for me, by that I mean the lettering is being absorbed by the background.

    Oh, and why link back to here you miserable git?

    Give me time.

    The banner is my photo but I can't find any way to adjust anything else in that department. (yet)

    Should have looked harder Is that better?

    You can change the writing on the photo though. The black type on the Wirehunt get's lost, especially the "W".

    Ok, I see you've changed it now.

    What about jazzing up the "Wirehunt" text?

    Maybe a Emboss it and make it semi transparent?

    Looks good.

    Got quite a few typos though.

    Mainly apostrophes where there shouldn't be.

    I was working on the kiss theory. But it needs more?

    EG

    Moeraki Boulder’s

    Should be Moeraki Boulders

    the apostrophe>s is used if it is an abbreviation, eg it's instead of it is, or if the word is a possessive, eg Stephen's piece of shit Nikon.

    Sorry, my ancestors invented the language I get touchy about grammar lol

    do you want me to proof it for you? I can have a look through tonight.

    With regards to your banner:

    I have a site of my own, also in development. I use a custom banner for each section so I chose the one from my "contact/purchase" that best illustrates what I've done.





    You can see here a custom photo took and fitted it on a 800x100 canvas, moved it until it was in a position I liked.
    For my font I chose something clear and reasonably bold to allow easy reading. I then added a drop shadow to make it stand out from the greenery.

    I'd be more than happy to donate some of my pictures for you to make a proper banner, I can make one for you as I have the .psd
    template, I can send you the .psd so you don't have to figure out the font etc for yourself, or I can simply just tell you the sizes/font etc for you to do it yourself.

    PM me either way.

    Looks good. Would prefer the photos to be a bit larger on the main page, but I know you're worried about image theft.

    Sigh trollers.

    Yes It's a nice improvement to your old one. No problem with the offer. I'm honestly MORE than happy to help where I can.

    Yes - bigger and chunkier for more punch - a drop shadow adds a touch of class. Makes it look like you made an effort, yanno?

    and re the apostraphe issue - no you don't need to add one whenever you have a word that is a plural - sadly its a common issue

    it is = shortened to it's

    its = the cat licked its fur - NO apostraphe

    plural = cat vs cats - NO apostraphe

    referring to ownership by a person of a thing = Stephen's piece of shit Nikon

    There is a lovely book written about punctuation called Eat Shoots and Leaves - I think its by a Kiwi

    The only way I'll ever learn this XXXXXXX XXXXXX program is to use it. This being the prefect time.
