Just a simple CSS job for my first User Lookup, mostly to familiarize myself with neopet's code. If I had to worry about making it compatible with whatever layout I whipped up in photshop, I'd have probably gone nuts. <.<

Anyhoo, I'd appreciate any feedback :D

I'm a pretty big fan of the "less is more" idiom. yours is definitely very nice for a first attempt. I've been using the internet for at least half of my life and I still haven't gotten around to learning enough to make my own lookups >_<

can't wait to see what you come up with when you're even more familiar with the code!

I love it, it's got great colour harmony and it's simple without being tooooo simple.

My only suggestion would be (and I don't know how feasible this is, seeing as I know zero about CSS) in the plain pink bit of the background, perhaps put a very slight pattern - stripes or something - in a very translucent white, to make it still interesting as you scroll down the page.

I think it's great though :)

Wow that looks really good. I love the colors and the whole feel of the layout.

The only thing I'd suggest is to make the text maybe just a bit darker, the links are really hard to read.

I really like it! Especially for a first userlookup! The flowers at the top are my favorite part, and as a suggestion, maybe you could incorporate them more in your lookup? Like, add them on the bottom for a simple, but nice look. I agree with darkening the link colors, too. Otherwise, it is a great lookup, much better than I could probably do!

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I added a patterned background to the content portion, used the flowers a bit more as a decorative accent, and darkened the menu links. Hopefully that helps :D
