    I have been messing with HTML for a few years now heer and there and I finally got a spare computer to set up as a server.
    I decided to host a website on it and need some tips before I go any further.
    TEAM 151 (My Site)
    Right now I only have the gallery, Guides, and front page up.
    So before I finish it I would liek some advice on what I should change or keep.

    Would help if the site was online? Maybe it's only me not being able to connect.

    Are you sure that's set up right?
    EDIT: Do you have a favicon? If not, try favicon.cc

    it's probably a problem with his DNS server/settings, which makes him think it's online because he can still see it

    i didn't really wait a while to see if anything happened though because i didn't get a response after like 20-30 seconds

    You're trying to host a website on DSL, either without the right ports forwarded, or with the ISP (listed as bellsouth, but they merged with AT&T, right?) blocking inbound port 80?

    Get a webhost, first off.

    Sorry I took it offline to change the layout.
    It is back up.

    It looks pretty good to start with, but things aren't aligned perfectly.
    I looked at it in Chrome and Internet Explorer 8.

    Also, your logo is beautiful except for the most meaningful part. If you're going to have a banner that big with a detailed background you absolutely have to antialias the font presenting the title. Also, check out one of the dozens of genuinely free font foundries such as http://www.dafont.com (they even have some pokemon dingbat fonts to make it easy for you to create a logo without actually ripping off a graphic)
