Well the site is no were near finished, Because I am extremely busy. What I am going to add is more pages, a chat room, Fix up some things and make it look more friendly. also the site doesn't add up in some browsers, because when i was making this site i only used notepad and not dreamweaver because i recently formated my hard drive, and I didn't have dreamweaver. So have a look and tell me what you think, be honest and tell me some suggestions and/or what's wrong with the site.

http://gamersdose.com/

p.s. where it says "Forums" in the right panel is where all the buttons will be, for other pages.

thanks! all replies appreciated greatly!

hmmm... how can one review a site if there is a message: "I just launched the website, some things to look for in the next month or so are; Game reviews, Game of the month awards, Screen shots, and much much more! Be sure to visit back..."

Hi artchy,

I think you should have been complete the site before uploading it. I like the home page and forum page background and colors you have selected.

To be honest, I don't like it at all ... The colours really bother me ... there are just too many of them (colours) ... I think you should stick to just two colours to make it look more uniform ...

The W3C Validator can't check your page because of an incorrect character encoding ... you can click here to see were the problems are ...

It seems to me that the only link that that site has is to the forums ... That doesn't make sense to me, why not just make it go directly there ... ?

For me your site took really long to load all the pictures ... It may be because they are stored on Imageshack and not on your host ...

I'd have to agree, rather Halloweenish colors and banners that do not match each other at all. And for the forum, I looks exactly like you built it through the web host, if thats not what you did then I suggest you re-work the banner on the page.

In terms of layout, the entire site is all over the place, whats the purpose for the Forum table/div. Also I would change the font from Times, just make it something beyond default.

Also, the bg-image to make the columns...you can make the image smaller, say 2px by SCRN width, to cut down on the load time.

Hope this helps.

Do not use:

1. Internal CSS, use an external file.
2. Capital HTML-tags. HTML in its latest version is a case sensetive markup language.
3. The *peach* <font> tag. We´ve been blessed with CSS for a reason.
4. The <center> tag. See 3.
5. The align property in <p> tags and images. See 3.
6. The <b> tag. See 3.

Can you please explain this piece of code to me? think the
Code: [ Select ]
</div>

Im know barely anything about coding but from a visual standpoint you need a lot of help. your nav bar should be under the header or on the top left not the bottom. like others said do not like the colors either. try to just make a plain simple site and build from there.

Yes ... usually I just report their posts if they want reviews to their own site ...

I agree.
If new designers have comments such as that to look forward to when they ask for reviews, they may be less than likely to ever ask again.

New designers learn by being given critical, yet constructive reviews, not smart ass barbs such as the last line in your review.
