    Looks fine. Can't suggest any improvements, though I'm not a fan of grey text you haven't gone too light. Are you worried about anything in particular?

      No worries, and yeah, I think I barely got by on the grey text as it's fairly readable. So again, nothing in particular to ask, just sharing the work. Thank you so much!

    Your site is so pretty! Love the design. But I find the white text on the black background not quite solid-looking which makes it hard to read. I think a different font and just a bit bigger would be make the white text much easier to read.

      Thanks for the compliment and the feedback, I am interested in what you are saying. Can you provide a link? Not sure where you are seeing that (except for the footer).

    On the home page, everywhere you have used small white text on a black background, this can be a little hard to read (looks fuzzy if you happen to have your laptop screen tilted back a little). The larger white heading is easy to read, but the smaller white text is not. I'd make the font a little bigger or different font to increase readability. I'm looking on 15" screen.
    Also this line could use a bigger line-height "GameSync's Hardware Performs Better Than What I Typically Use"
    And your ordered list would look nicer with an indent on the 2nd line. Your unordered lists are nicely indented on the 2nd line. But now I'm getting real fussy. Many wordpress themes have this problem with the ordered lists for some reason.
    Your slider images are looking great.

      Great, that's perfect. I am trying to fix the small issues. Actually the image slider buttons are hard to read (surprised you didn't mention this!) but they do look nice overall.

      Can you click around to a few more pages, is there anything else?

      Thank you!!!

        Also, can you give a font (or fonts) suggestion? This is a gaming site so ideally something themed along those lines (but still clear/readable) would be great.

    Yes your slider buttons are hard to read, but what can you do? They are lovely buttons. Can you move them down a bit to where the picture is less busy?

    I can't presume to suggest a whole new font. You haven't much wriggle room in your top navigation for starters. I would be inclined to throw those home page small white text paragraphs into a class and make them a little bigger. I think a bit bigger font for just those bits would work ok. You might disagree and want to keep all your paragraph font sizes the same on the home page. It's not like your entire website is white text on black.

    In your navigation "Gaming PC's for sale" should be "Gaming PCs" (no apostrophe).
    Can't find much else, it's pretty super. The new sign up form is cool, did you use gravity forms for that?

      I can try and fill in the button or remove them and design them into the image itself. I don't know yet how to move them.

      Yes, will make home page white text slightly bigger. Great idea.

      Yes, I changed top navigation text as you suggested.

      Yes, Gravity forms throughout, except for contact page.

    Please promise me you won't put the button onto the image itself. It's a nice button with the rollover and all. Button background color of black looks nice on the home page slider if you could restyle the button a little.
    Gravity forms are pretty cool, lot of options.

      I don't want to put the button onto the image. I just need to figure out how to make it easier to read. So yes, I promise!
