Would it be possible to have the site give you the option of the background colour and/or colour of text?
Yes. Good idea.
in terms of navigation, the only thing that would be helpful is a search bar for both players and/or tournaments because there are so many that finding it on the drop down menu is a pain
That's a great idea too. It could work for tournaments but I'm not so sure about players because player names have all kinds of symbols in their names that are not on the standard keyboard. Hmm.
background... maybe a pale orange with purple font
or light blue/turquoise with purple font
the background shouldn't be too dark and the font shouldn't be too light otherwise it'll be painful to look at
Can you go here
, choose the color combinations you like and then post them here? Post the color number that is above the color picker, for example #6655A1.
Will be back soon and upload new tournaments...
Automatic ranking system?
I would put frames and borders in it and re-think the distribution of the main page.
Yup. A banner at the top, links on the left, everything else in the middle. Now I just need someone to make a banner
