    Too much what?

    Is there anything on there? Nothing that is clickable does anything useful?

    Its a start, but.... I'd wait to unveil it to use until its somewhat functional.

    You wanted our opinion, and this is it!

    Looks too much like a fourm rather than a website.

    The only thing that suggests that this is a lawn related site is this...


    The rest looks like it could be any type of site. Get rid of Logging in and username and password, what homeowner is going to do this?

    Most of your exposure would be to your existing customer base just "checking it out" after you mention it to them in your monthly bill.

    Need more GREEN related stuff, big pictures of your work, not tons of clickable links and random quotes.

    Hi ChadsLawn,

    Is the forum going to be for your customers or green industry people?

    Yellow text is not a good color. Too hard to see.

    The one that looks like a discussion forum is quite hard to figure out at first glance.

    Send that one to the shredder.

    The one that looks like a flyer is clean looking and easy to read.

    Well I think this bit about 'Firefox can't find the server at www.chadslawn.com' might be a bit much for some to swallow yes, but other than them closing the browser window, I don't see much of a usage issue.
