Hey guys! I'm not dead! And to prove it, here's the first-draft shell for the website layout:

Looks great. Do you want me to break it down and code the HTML or do you have it covered?

I think I've got it. Thanks for offering. :)

However, if you know any javascript, you can do all that coding. I'm afraid I'm a nooblet in that region.

Unfortunately, I don't know JS either. I do know PHP if you want the site built off of a header, index and footer layout.

Oh gawd. PHP. I hate PHP. It's so slooooooow. >:(

I'd much prefer to experiment with Javascript and Ajax. If you'd like, we can work on the JS together, and make it a learning experience for us both. :)

Eh... not much of a language person. I barely know any PHP, but if it's like creating a drop-down menu for the bar, I think it should be fairly simple. Unless you use Fireworks to make an image-bases website, which is also complicated.

I make websites from the ground up, no external force needed. :P

We'll see whether we actually need any dynamic moving parts. I still just have the shell that I posted done, so once I've designed more of the look, I'll know more about what kind of code is needed.

I think it could be pulled off with basic HTML/CSS, unless we need special effects.

Still no content, and I can't say I'm pleased with how it's turning out, but we'll see where it goes.

The downside is that the logo is so big that it pushes the "Join Us" button of the screen, and I'm using the common 1024x768 monitor.

Really? It shouldn't. Do you have any sidebars or anything? I'm making it for my monitor, which is 1024x1280. The size doesn't really matter, however. When I actually lay out the CSS, it'll be variable width.

Also, the actual buttons may be different or not where they are at all. I haven't yet decided what I want to do with them. The whole thing is subject to change.

Yeah, just move the buttons to about 5px away from the stop of the curve and it should be fine.

[bump]

I decided I was going to test run that image by putting it into HTML by splitting it, and to make it expandable would be very difficult.

How so? You should only need to center the buttons in their own div, then set it to 'center' in the header div... then just add a min-width to the whole thing so they don't slide too far over.

Also, remember, I don't even know If I want to put the buttons where they currently are. They may end up on the sidebar instead.

Then we clash: I believe in the table tag as use for a webpage.

Divs are much more flexible, if you know how to use them. It's much better practice as well, especially with HTML5 out.

Tables are for laying out information. They were never intended for use in web design, especially since they require the design to be tied in with the structure.

However, ultimately, you should use neither divs nor tables too much. Try to have as simple code as possible.
