On your main page, the tour link, Start Now and Why Barter? links aren`t functioning. Many of the menus are not going to actual pages. ( Just mentioning it since you said functioning site )
In the search area of the main page, what exactly is the search looking for? Businesses, or items/services that I want or offer?
On the registration page, there is a lot of coding showing up below the actual user area. Also, it mentions there is only a cost when you contact someone. What type of cost? That line makes me leery as I don`t have any idea ahead of time what type of payments you will want for me to actually get that involved.
If I type in just your domain name, I get redirected to the pre-registration page instead of the index page. Is that intentional?
I joined to see the progress and perhaps use it along the way. At the thank you page, I noticed that all of the info I added in the pre-reg page is present in the url. Might want to eliminate that. You also don`t have a username/password/captcha system in place, which isn`t critical but I think many people are getting used to them so it seems a bit odd when they aren`t present.
All in all though, it looks good and I`ll keep checking in with it.
