Your site looks good, although i couldn't get to very much of it as it was all restricted.
One comment though would be to change the colour scheme, lately i've seen at least 3 other websites that look idential to yours because of the phpnuke.

Yeah the color scheme was a group consensus - we showcased about 4 different templates and this one seemed to please the majority.  We may change it in the future.  We are thinking of having the option for the user to choosse their own templates but at the moment we are more concentrating on the riddles and that.

Yeah - unless you register you don't get to see the full impact of the site.  So if you like riddles and puzzles and that - feel free to come and join up.

Unrestrict the content for the most part. For example, have one really good riddle exposed for the public to try and solve and then see the answer. Then you entice them to signup for the rest of the site.

lots of recipricol links can really help as well:

www.jokeawhenever.com/links is a place you can start :-)

That's a good idea.  I am going to post the winner of the riddle submission award for February so his riddle can be seen by everyone (even guests)
