Any chance of making the "create account" link on the main page a bit more prominent? Currently the font is so small its barely visible, and there have been many times I've had to help a puzzled newbie to find it. Anything that makes it hard for a newbie to get into the game can't be a good thing.

For once I agree with Armand. (Don't tell him).

I'd be happy to use some of web webdesign knowledge to make a more interactive flash based tour.

Nah, Armand's illiterate. He dictates everything to his tame hampster David to type.

What he doesn't know is that me and David are in cahoots!

Suggestion noted. Any ideas what we could do to make it more prominent but still pleasing to the eye?

Feedback like this is very welcome

If you have any ideas for this and have the time to do it, please do! We did have someone who was working on an interactive tour but he has since disappeared. If you're serious, please e-mail Foddy.

Change the entire website to a 120 size font flashing javascript "PLAY NOW!". That'll do it.

...

what?

Lots of love and hugs.

How about shift the "connect now" slightly down and place the "create account" above it, in the same font and size?

That should also hopefully be fairly simple to implement. I know how frustrating it can be to have to completely reshuffle a website layout.

The existing username/password boxes can then be stretched slightly to the full height and width of the box they're currently in, making them slightly more readable as well.
