    Not even 1 day old, I worked ALL day and ALL night.
    SEMrush
    http://www.YayFreeGames.com

    The only games that currently work are Action Games (getting to the others just fixing some minor things with everything else on the site).

    Also the only game page that works as of now is
    http://yayfreegames.com/action.php

    I designed EVERYTHING in Photoshop and it's all coded in CSS.

    Please leave me some feedback, good or bad. All is appreciated!

    Thank you
    -Doug

    Very nice design. The color/highlight on mouseover works very well. One suggestion, preload the highlighted images in JS so there's no delay (however slight) on the first load of each one.

    For the YPN, you might want to experiment with using color instead of white, so it catches the visitors attention. The white gets lost real easy amid the rest of the site. Nice work!

    Thank you MrX!

    I use javascript preloaders but I don't think they work to well. Do you have any you would recommend?

    Check out your body onload tag...MM_preloadImages doesn't take any arguments. I just preload mine through an array with some looping.

    Man, instead of telling me it's slow. Tell me where you live, internet connection, browser, etc. So I can fix it.

    I mean it's loading quick for everyone on my buddies list. I have them clear their cookies/cache/history and try again and they all say it's fine.

    It's probably because i'm mass editing right now in CuteFTP? I'm doing search and replaces for nearly 200 files.
    ^^^ That's probably it.

    Took out some tables for the header images and replaced with div's should be a wee bit faster.
