Thanks for your comment dmcgraw.
Do you mind sharing what kind of stuff you'd expect as a "newbie"? I have an introduction page, but it needs a little work...
Thanks for the feedback about the design. (Do you mean the front page and/or the articles?) It certainly seems a love-hate thing, but I'll see what I can do! Ironically, most websites (including this one) have text of similar width text than AiGameDev.com, but it feels narrower somehow.
Maybe I should just left-align the whole thing!
