um....wow i really don't know where to start here.
Ditching the bolts would do it justice, IMO its pretty gaudy. Doesn't look good at all. I'd just start over fresh with something new.
Don't take offense to what i tell you here, not trying to be rude. I would say scrap it all together.
wats so awful about it? i know bolts didnt turn out well. but point out other things so i can fix in next theme.
Hmm, well I think that you should start with the header, it looks extremely plain and boring. Try something smaller. The navigation isn't the best either. It needs some color. Right now it looks just too simple and plain. To the left and right of the header look like speakers. Are you planning on your site having music? The left and right of the main content area looks really small compared to the rest of the template. Try to give it a more "Web 2.0" look. Keep workin on it!
Idk, i don't think it needs to be scrapped....but
theres nothing that really stands out about it
the screws could be removed, but they don't appear to be a major drawback to the entire design
some kinda pattern in the bg might help make the main area stand out more
but i think suggestions are hard to give, considering theres not much yet,
i think it should wait till a more finished product can be seen
not too bad so far though in my opinion
the left and right blocks are small cuz they are meant to stretch. They body will stretch to normal size once coded. But i will start and try to fix up the Header, and I was planning on adding some music. But im not exactly sure. Im still pondering on it, and may need to ask my coder if he will know how to code it as well. lol
I have Updated the main post with a newer version.
Iunno man, honestly i think scrapping it would be best. Dont get me wrong, your showing some good techniques in there but there just not working for me.
Before i make my layouts, I like to go onto Deviant art or GR and look at everyone elses designers and build off of what I see being used collectively, then i make my own design.
Just browse around and see what you like, then try adn make your own design from what you've seen being used often by other designers.
been doing that, and i like how it looks so far. New update now too.
Give it some Color!!!!
color was added to match new header. happy snowy?
That was only reason color was delayed. didnt want to add color then have to change it all when banner didnt fit.

I think i am complete. Might add more details. Comments plzzz
1. Change banner text. I like the background, but the text brings it down imo.
2. Get rid of the Home>Forums>User CP>Download| thing, or else add a nice glow* to it or something. I'm just not feeling it too much
3. Change username&password area Make textboxes rectangles with maybe a glow* or something, change font to Arial? 10pt, no black outline, but blue or black text
4. I'm not too fond of the content boxes, but I'm not sure what to tell you there
* when i say glow, i mean that two toned thing you did with the header, not outer glows
if you have any questions, feel free to ask me
updated it, my final version. Thanx for tips spartan
Looks much better then the first version.
