Socoder -> Web Development -> Afr0 Games!

I sat down for like an hour today learning a little more about css and html, for the purpose of finally trying to move my applications and games over to the new site.
I'm still a bit... unsure of the overall site-design, though. I've tried to keep all the pages as consistent as possible (with the notable exception of the forum, which has free reigns).
Any comments about the design? Ideas? Tips? Whatever?
Please try to be constructive. I'm still learning.

Edit: Also, there isn't much I can do about the overal look of the Gallery. If I knew how to do that, I'd have made my own!

Please, please, please get rid of that menu and make a normal, functional website.

Huh?
All websites have menus.
At least most of the ones I've been to.
I need a way to let people actually navigate the site!!

Edit: I fixed the images. Apparently, forward slashes for images only works in Internet Explorer! Stupid Firefox!!

He means, stick with a static menu that doesn't need two clicks to use..

Also, slightly off-topic, but does anyone have any clue as to why this CSS class seems to be centering text as well as images in Internet Explorer but not Firefox?
Silly Firefox!!

Try "margin: 0 auto;"

I need to click directly on a letter to open the menu. If you're going to do it that way, make it so I can click anywhere on the tab.

A log of people in this topic have jumped the gun and assumed you are an expert web developer. You're not bad for just learning. I would definitely recommend reading more about how to write web pages. The code has many errors. For instance, your entirely missing <html> tags.

I recommend the W3 Schools articles:

Learn HTML at W3 Schools

Once you get that done, I would learn how to style pages with CSS:

Quit posting and try Google.

you are also missing a doctype, this is important as it will let the browser know to what standard you are coding to, without it the browser will be set to quirks mode which could cause a lot of problems with viewing your site.

As well as w3c which is a good site I recommend looking at HTML Dog which is very good at teaching basic techniques of both html and css. It will give you tutorials in manageable chunks, so html basics, css basics move on to Intermediate html and then intermediate css, so you will learn both structure and styling at the same time.

Also if web design is something that you are really interested in a good read is The Principles of Beautiful Web Design.

Now on to the review.
As for your design it lacks any real theme, think about what your site is about and what you want to display on it. As at the moment it looks as if you have said:

"I need a menu, there is a menu, I need a header, there is a header, I need a picture of my game...ect"

So it just needs a little bit of structure and planning, but that will come with trial and error
