Critiques Wanted!

Hey everyone, I'm working on finishing a website for an organization. One of the things they wanted was that it be a low-bandwidth website. The only large image is the banner image, which I designed from scratch. The website currently gets a YSlow score of A (93) and I haven't even done some final things like compressing the stylesheet and adding expires headers. Boen_robot, you can see the RewriteRule problem I encountered on the broadcasts page. The music file in the broadcasts page is just Windows 7 sample music. The upcoming event is not real either. :) The "upcoming events" and "recent broadcasts" frame are not functional yet, so just pretend. Any critiques whatsoever regarding the website are more than welcome. http://akv4f.cyberstream.us

I'm not sure about the hover color in the events section, but then again, I have no design sense at all, so don't take my word for it.You seem to be using a center element... other than that "principle" issue, excellent, both in terms of design (again, that coming from me as a user, not as a designer) and code.

Thanks for the comments! Honestly, I'm not very satisfied with the events section design either. I'll work out a new design for that and let you know what I come up with. Oops, I thought the center element was new in HTML5, but looking further, I see that it was actually deprecated in HTML5. I'll fix that pronto.

I love the testimonial page. Great concept I haven't seen. (Obviously I have seen testimonials...)One fix I see is on the contact page. Is it possible to move the text "Message:" to the top/middle area. I think it would look better than on the bottom. Other than that, it is a great minimalist site :).

Thank you for your compliments, Graham. You have a very attractive site, too! I rolled out a new design on the events page, so check it out and let me know what you think. I also completed the home page and, if there are no errors or design flaws, it will go live ASAP! I'm getting a YSlow rating of A and I haven't even made the static resources cacheable yet. I will also compress my stylesheet before the production launch.

Awesome, only thing I might take into consideration is making the date and time on the event pages darker. It is a little hard to read. Granted I know you can hover over to make it darker :P. But I am just thinking about the stupid people who won't try to hover.

Woah, the links page, the url next to the hyperlink is way to light.Only reason I noticed it was there was because I accidentally hovered over it.Plus I like how on the about page it says "edit page" :D Haha. Otherwise A+

OK, I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the URL ghosted until hovered over, or keep it visible. I guess I'll darken it significantly. Yeah, the client hasn't edited the about page yet. I've finished the part that's up to me, though! :)
