    Ok I have started removing a bunch of the adsense, now you mention it it makes sense, have been designing some banners that suit each category myself and adding them in place of the adsense. Also reduced the image sizes on the categories page, I had over looked a few of them and they were huge, so that should speed up the load time a bit (I hope) Also thank you YMC for the "other listing" looking second rate spotting! another oversight of many many to come I am sure. changed that to "Quality Sites" or is that too corny? any suggestions? I tell you all I am super stoked I was referred to DP, you are all awesome! updated version is uploading now, if you could recheck the speed of the site for me that would be awesome, In japan right now and the net is super fast, hard to see any delay in load time from here! Thanks a million! I am off to bed another 3 am finish time, development is the best fun ever huh? hehe

    Also I am planning on adding some more content to each page, at the moment it is such a new site I am not really expecting too many visits, I would say a few more days and nights at it and it should be in much better running order...i.e less ads more content and design elements, also hopefully more links to good sites!

    Far too graphically intense. Not only does it take a week and a half to load it staggers when scrolling and I've got a very powerful system here. If your going to use photos etc, you really need to make them either thumbnails or better just gifs. Not going to comment on the content, Gay's and Lesbians don't rock my boat, I suspect it will put a lot off but attract those who aren't so bothered.

    i am just running of a laptop at the moment and it loads fine?? I am reworking it slowly to speed it up.
    people who are put off by gay,lesbian,straight metrosexual etc are not my preferred audience to tell the truth. but thanks for the input, all the feedback i have received here is great.

    Yeah, still loading a tad slow - and the scrolling on each page is choppy, too.

    I still like the design/concept.

    You might be able to pull in a good amount of traffic/awareness/links with the blog.

    Good luck.

    You seemed to have crunched the graphics a little? Its certainly loading a lot quicker than it was and that's even in firefox. Like I said, content aside I think its great and wish you all the success you get.
