Uh, well... I've seen worse. If you're a newb I'd rate you a 10 out of 10 on my 'newBie' scale.

I could spend some time there. It's easy to navigate, graphics are ok, extremely good use of CSS (I imagine that's how to did the images sitting on the text and such) .

IMO Good job! :)

Black text on drak green background is almost unreadable.

Main page is a bit unorderly.

first things first, on the "frames" page you gotta drop the iframe, if you want frames use real frames the inframe leaves a gap on the left,right and bottom, it looks really cheap. Aside from that for a n00b site it's not bad. Just one thing you'll want to move away from is black backgrounds, all n00bs seem to use them. Don't worry, you'll grow out of it. I eventually did.

well... it doesnt look disimilar to my first website ;) heres some things ive learn since making my first one ;)... i might sound harsh but hopefully it'll speed up your design ideas.

rather than going through a splash page and a "do you want frames" page... hows about seeing the information straight away? or maybe just the one splash page... with "enter frames site" and "enter non-frames site" or something?

try to keep a consistent colour for links (or just a consistent colour theme in general;))... otherwise a user doesnt know whether its a link or an underlined piece of text...

the flying images could go... as can the no-right-click script...

its a starting place... dont be discouraged ;)

Far too many spelling mistakes. And "drak" green is pretty unattractive IMHO.

What's the thought behind frames vs. no frames anyway? The frames version didn't appear to have any advantages over the no-frames version, not to me anyway. I'd say: stick to frameless, unless you find a very compelling reason to use them.

Some other hints:

pay attention to contrast; dark text on a black background is hardly legible.
think about the people that want, or have to, use a 800x600 screen resolution, or don't want to watch your page in a maximised window.
Try to cut down on the profusion of text colors; too many colors don't improve legibility, and may through visitors off.
Consider navigation; give it it's own place on every page, and don't make visitors search for it: put it somewhere high up the page.
Floating, wobbly creatures are very kewl... for about two seconds. After that, they just annoy visitors and distract them from the actual content.
Common elements found on every page (headers, footers, nav bars, but also color, font, etc.) create the impression of a site rather then a random collection of non-related pages.

Whoa, a RPG fansite? OK, I admit I played those games... AHEM..

Well, for a newbie, you did try a lot like i once 'first' try out my, i mean our website, i noticed u played a little with css, in case you haven't notice. You can learn alot by SHARING YOUR SOURCE CODES, coz that's how most self-learners go by the web on their own.

Your page is wide, you have to consider letting your page to be resizeable. Here, you don't really need to have frames. I know it's fun to make frames. You can learn to make better floating frames. Or better go learn how to use LAYERS.

Try consider those who are COLOR-BLIND. That site of yours is not 'too' friendly on that matter.

One last thing, since you are using GEOCITIES at the moment... you ll soon realised that it ain't enough place for you to learn more... like FTP, PHP, etc... and besides it's free service's isn't that good.

Keep up ahead and you ll improve.

Many pro's use wysiwyg's, a good step towards learning html is making a page in a visual editor, it can help you understand how the page works. Learning some CSS is a must as is understanding how and when to use html and when to use styling.

tbh this is a classic example of a first page. My first site was probably quite similar, I remember finding Dynamic Drive and throwing a dozen on one single page. It's all about learning what works and what doesn't.

hmmm.. after all ive read, let me answer some stuff, and ask some stuff:

1. I did use a page builder, but I only use Geocities because its free :)

2. I really have no idea what XHTML, PHP, CSS, and all that crap is, so I am guessing I need a bit of reading and lessons :p

3. I dont want to waste money on getting donaim names, and all that crap :mad:

4. Does anyone have any other suggestions on getting free web builders? :confused:

5. Actually, your right. My site is a newbie site :(

6. After I become more educated on web building, I am going to re do my whole site in a whole different way; maybe in a new place like Tripod, or somewhere else..... :cool:

7. Does anyone know where to get more education on XHTML, PHP, CSS, and HTML?

Thank you for the feedback guys :thumbsup:

Dude - never apologise for where you're at :) and pay no attention to unconstructive negativity - it says more about its author than its subject :rolleyes:

Here are some links to help you get your foundations straight:

WT,

I'd suggest starting with learning a bit about HTML and CSS, HTML for page structure and CSS for presentation / adornment.
There are many sites that offer tutorials for both; i think W3Schools (http://www.w3schools.com/) is a nice starting point. Otherwise, search on "HTML tutorial" resp. "CSS tutorial", that'll keep you busy for a while... :D
A good place to read up on usability, accessibility, navigation, etc. is the Web Style Guide (http://www.webstyleguide.com/index.html); it's fairly up-to-date, and contains a lot of useful tips.
