Your "This site is running Team Viewer" announcement is kinda truncated/lost (I could only see that it's a team Viewer statement by looking at the page source -- but I don't care if sites run Team Viewer, anyway).

You've obviously spent a lot of time on the technical aspects of the site, but not enough on the content. It's easy to get lost like that, but you've really got to look at the site with the eyes of a user.

Questions the user will ask:
- What is this site for?
- What is is showing me on this page?
- What is on other pages, and why should I go there?
- What should I click?
- Why should I click it?

The first and last sentences of the answer to the first question in your FAQ should not be hidden away in an FAQ that is itself hidden away at the very bottom of the page; it should be at the top of every page.

The same goes for many of the FAQ answers. They should not be questions that people have to ask; you should provide the information to them.

And, a point of order, here, which really annoys me -- you can't have an FAQ if no-one has asked any questions!
The point of an FAQ is to answer questions that have been frequently asked by users; what you have is an unfriendly, hard to use dump for information that you can't be bothered to provide in a user-friendly way.
If a question has not actually been asked by a user, it should not be in an FAQ, because it has not been asked at all, let alone "Frequently".

An FAQ answer is a hotfix, which should be used temporarily, until the site can be amended to include the information properly.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
