Subject: [ET] design feedback

I have put up, and am constantly developing, a collaborative website for
sharing genealogy information between researchers. A short list of features
includes: 100% free, no ads, storing all branches in one common tree,
pedigree charts, descendant charts, discussion posts, Google map
integration, duplicate checks, feasibility checks, and so on. I'm aiming to
bring genealogy into the 21st century of internet technology, doing many of
the things that other systems and databases don't do. A more thorough
description is available online at http://www.gurganus.org/ourfamily ->
View -> Help.
My main reason for posting here is that someone replied to me saying that
the site is "visually and functionally atrocious, confusing, restrictive and
gaudy." While I don't agree, I also realize I don't have an objective
viewpoint. So if there are people here who have an eye for good design, in
general web design or in genealogy functionality, I welcome feedback.
Everyone is also welcome to join as researchers, not just critics. While my
own research is primarily in the southeast US, any families from anywhere
are welcome. We're all in one family.
