Embedded audio?  Really?  Suddenly it's 1998 again.

 

Rule #1 of web design - don't force your users to listen to any sounds they cannot turn off.  When you take control away from the user, the user goes away from your site.

 

And, really, there's no design to speak of here.  It's a black site with neon green boxes and font.  It looks like it took about 3 minutes of planning to come up with.  Not trying to be harsh, but there's nothing there to comment on aside from an annoying .mp3 which plays automatically and a form with no layout applied to it.

 

You need some graphical elements.  You need to look at making your form elements on your Members page align so it doesn't look haphazard.  You need to give users relevant information about:

 

Who the group is.

What the group does.

Where they operate from.

What membership entails.

Contact information.

Meetings/other activities.

What you hope to do with the data (simply store it?  plot maps?).

Local charter info.

agreed, the font is much to bright.. need to make it much more appealing... and use updated methods instead of old methods to add media etc.

I don't know what site everyone else is looking at but what I'm seeing looks pretty simple. Just green Matrix-like colored text on a black background. Needs more tweaking and designing IMO.

 

I got rid of the stripped background is that what made it unappealing

 

^ there was a bright green/black diagonal gradient for the background.
