    TheClevelandShow.info

    Please let me know what you think. I bought this domain and added the layout/content yesterday all in about 5 hours so hopefully it's not that awful and can fetch me a small profit.

    URL is www.theclevelandshow.info

    The only major problem for me is the fact that the logo/banner is of really bad quality. If you improve the banner then I think it will look good.

    Ya I had it as a much smaller size and just quickly resized it. I may go back later and try to redo it. Problem is there's basically only one image of the text and I had to cut it out of it which is always a pain :/

    Why not find the font for that text and do it yourself?

    I'm concerned about your typographic style.
    For starters, the captials are over-used and quite redundant. Use italicization instead, or small caps, and only where they're needed.
    Have a paragraph indent and spacing between paragraphs is overkill. I'd drop the indent—the general style on the web—as it seems a bit out of place.

    There are too many ads. They're double the height of the content! I can see the point in one of the adsense modules, but three?

    Finally, I don't see licensing information anywhere...

    Are you joking? I'm assuming you just didn't visit the site with such a stupid comment...

    I got rid of the caps/indenting and I agree with you I think it is for the best.

    I designed this site purely for the intention of adsense ... err I mean to bring great content to all my fans

    Good call on licensing I'm going to add a footer later today with a more prominent link to my site and a disclaimer.

    Umm, you assume I didn't visit the site...have a look a few posts up, maybe you will see a post by me...So pardon me, don't you think your the fool here...

    Oh my bad, I just don't see how you think it's as simple as that when clearly I wanted the official text of the show...

    Well I wondered if you could like, get the font (if there is one), curve it to that shape and add some blending options. May not turn out as good, but worth a try.

    Header logo needs to be de-jaggied.

    No Home button.

    Might look better with 5-10 pixels more padding around the left content area.

    Overall it's kind of plain, but it doesn't look bad.

    Which came first - the chicken or the egg? The egg... [ticket closed]
    If a tree falls... does it make a sound? Yes.............. [ticket closed]

    There is no home page. About takes you to the root file.

    That's fine if you prefer to not have a 'home' page, but most visitors will probably find it confusing.
