    I'll give it three out of five stars.

    Too many popups! WAY WAY TOO MANY POPUPS!

    The site design is pretty simple, so it could use a little tweaking, but its fine if you really don't want to change it.

    Using a hit counter (I assume that's what that is) is a big mistake. Nobody really cares how much traffic you get. If that isn't a hit counter, feel free to correct me, but im assuming thats what it is.

    Another mistake is putting the little browser, code name, and cookies enabled detecter (right under the hit counter thing) Again, no one actually cares. It is a cool thing 2 do with javascript, but it serves no purpose.

    That said, I would like to compliment you on a few of the graphic elements. I like the font you used for your logo (Lets make Neopoints) Another thing I really like is the little background you used for the title of all your messages on the homepage. eg: Introduction, Latest Update, etc. It is a very simple thing, but it almost gives a 3d effect or something. Or maybe my vision is just going crazy on me

    Some of the links seem to be broken.

    You have two menus. This might not be a bad thing, but see if you can merge them into one.



    So overall? Id give it 3 out of 5 stars or in this case smilies.
    I wouldnt go on it (even if i did play neopets or whatever) because of the ads, but if you cut back on those just a bit, and maybe fix the hit counter + browser detection, it will be a great site, one that I would visit often (if i did neopets(which i dont))


    o ya, dont forget to fix a link; it is broken.

    Now I have one thing to ask of you in return for this super-long post. I put up my own site last week. Could you check it out and tell me what you think of it? I would really appreciate that. You can just reply to this message or PM me if u want. thnx!

    Yeah the pop-ups/pop-unders are annoying.

    Personally - i like webpages to look like all of the sections 'blend together' while still being distincly differant.

    What i mean is - i dont like the way youre putting the page together - if that makes it a bit clearer.

    Firsty... theres two menus. I like the top one more than the middle one which i feel is oversized and too chunky. I think the actual logo could be a bit cleaner - perhaps get rid of the outerglow effect on the text or make it more like a line to help it to stand out. I also dont like the white to black fade on the left hand side of the page - it doesnt do anything or serve any real purpose to the design; and when viewing the site it kind of bugs me as i browse...

    I do like the main content area - although i think you need to consider making your site more uniformed as a whole in terms of style, and colour.

    Hope that helps matey!

    I saw that as well. Whenever you ask firefox for the browser.AppName, it always shows up as Netscape, and the browser.CodeName is Firefox.

    I know there are ways to fix this, but I'm too busy to go find them at the moment
