then why bother asking someone to critique your site? To be honest I thought the whole point in asking someone to look at your site is so that you can learn what is wrong with it.
It's all well and good to hear great things about a site, but even if I don't agree with what someone is saying, I'd much rather hear the brutal truth.
That being said, I find spin catch phrases like
"the fastest growing webmaster and social networking community" kindof annoying because they usually can't be proven.
I noticed that the icons you're using to represent members of your community are somewhat distorted. this is probably as a result of stretching images out of their appropriate proportions to fit within a fixed width/height.
Additionally, I felt like the arrow that says "Sign Up" should have been a clickable link, or make the sign up now link more prominent.
You're using tables for the layout, I don't think I need to say anything more about that.
Last but not least, I think that the type of person who would make use of your site, probably won't understand jargon like "Insane Stickability"

Great feedback thanks. I keep wanting to click on the Sign Up Arrow as well, good point.
As for the tables VS a CSS solution, without looking at the source, would you really know the difference??
Thanks again for your feedback .. my big question for this site is why people find it so hard to develop applications .. :(

I don't know what you mean by "develop applications."
If you mean "create a web site" then I think people do
not have too much trouble doing that as a rule. Almost any
teen or adult of average intelligence can learn HTML very
rapidly. Some may not realize this so they look for the type of
tools you offer.
On the other hand, there are far too many people who think
they can create an effective and appealing site without
knowing anything about the fundamentals of usability
and communication. Some sites done by amateurs are truly
horrible. But some can be quite nice if the creator takes the
trouble to study up on the subject and is willing to apply the
principles which the experts teach.
Tables are on their way out. It is important now to master
CSS and CSS positioning because these are considered the
best means of making a good web site in the future.
