I was approached by a local car dealership to design their website. I just thought I would show it off here to impress you guys.

As you can see, this website is completely loaded with awesome stuff.

Well, my website is the 2009 BT Business/NatWest Award winner for IT and Communications, and it turns over nearly £400,000.00 per year (moving £38 million of new cars at retail price per year) - so criticise away chaps.

Show me a site that you have built that is more successful.

I made it myself.

So, there is a reason why this is posted in the Geek News and Humour section. :D

And I can see why. It's completely brilliant. It totally pushes the envelope of modern design.

I mean, why have just one or two focal points when you can have hundreds of them?

And while other websites are stuck in the stone age and keep the weight of their home page below 100MB, you push the envelope once again. It's a genius way to stick it to the man. Have a slower connection? Get with the times! 100MB+ web pages are all the rage.

And I've always wanted to play 70 different games, quizzes and video clips on each page when I go car shopping online. I've tried telling other car companies this, but nobody listens. But you're not like the others. You know how to design brilliantly. You know how to keep someone entertained for hours on just one page!

Thank you Ling, for creating a revolutionary online car buying experience. It truly has influenced my design skills and has been an inspiration to me.

Your home page is 133 tables, 262 divs, and 570 spans of awesomeness.

Holy shiz... I figured it was outrageous but... holy shiz!

I'm amazed anyone would actually lease/buy a car off this site, really. There must be some pretty serious traditional local advertising going on as well to give people a warm fuzzy and drive traffic to the website.

Yeah I probably am just sour grapes :p

Same problem with my business bank accounts, just so full of numbers and zeros, I can't think where to look next!

And you still missed my 1,500+ fully attributed customer testimonials. Why no one else has that many, I don't know?

Can't possibly be due to my brilliant webpage and service, can it?

Of course, BT Business, Nat West etc don't know a thing about business websites do they? You lot could teach them loads :) Hahahaha.

Then again... I know the Mac Book for Dummies guide says "One small font size, in grey Helvetica ONLY and whatever you do, don't entertain the visitors. Bore them to success."

Trust me - if in doubt, make it bigger, make it brighter and make it flash.

Oh my… this is an insult to anybody with the slightest bit of aesthetic expertise or standard. But actually you’re right, that’s why porn ads and the like are working so well. Apparently people with good taste and some aestethic expectations are the minority on this world – which is very sad in my opinion.

But whatever. Keep on if you’re happy with what you’re doing and if you honestly think you make the web (and the world) a better place. A democracy has to tolerate that.

I expect that this was the OP creating a second account for humorous purposes. Unfortunately, if it were, I have destroyed its brilliance. Sorry.

I wish that were true.

Imagine my surprise when I see that someone (supposedly the site's designer/owner, to boot) came to the defense of the website less than 5 hours after my original post.

I kind of figured that a person like that with such a successful business and so many customers would be far too busy to even pay attention to a silly post on a small forum at all, let alone respond so quickly. Oh well.:)

I have a Core 2 dual-core laptop with three gigabytes of RAM. With that site open in Chrome, my computer is nearly at a standstill. Even typing stutters and lags. Christ.

It's obvious that this...person monitors their online activity very closely.

Natwest, particularly, don't know diddly about website design. Those half-arsed fecks still have the affrontery to use browser sniffing and, to make things worse, tell you that your browser isn't compatible when it friggin well is. Seriously, don't get me started over Natwest. Their site designers want taking outside and bleedin' well shooting.

Holy Schnikies batman, I didn't know browsers could do it without a crap!!! You missed one, 4,663 lines of code and 381KB in just one file!! That doesn't include the images, holy crap! This sites gotta be way more than a java CMS I found a few years back, again holy crap! Is this a joke, really??:confused:

This is why the world makes professionals, so we can be saved from atrosities like this.

I'm sorry OP, but If I paid for a dev to make a site for me and they gave me that .. they would find themselves in claims court real fast.

Calm down and carry on. And yes, I am Ling, I have uploaded the video of of me getting the IT Award here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOv7w5xEhP4), does that help?

You could still be an imposter. The only way to prove it is to have your picture taken with today's newspaper so we can see the date. Plus you have to write in red magic marker on the newspaper "I LOVE CODING FORUMS!"

Hahaha, from someone in Utah, that is a bit strong, saying i may be an imposter. Thought you were all mormon loonies?
