Post 3+ Months Ago

Hi,

I have just made my site, im just looking for some advice on what could be improved and what you generally think of it. The subjects of the site will not appeal to a lot of people.

the URL is http://www.ghostorbsociety.com

Thanks in advance for your comments

Tone

((EDIT)) Have made loads of changes, and gone with a completly new layout.

Could you please let me know what you think of the **Improved** site.

Would like to know what you think of the forum and the image page where registered users can add there own images that they have got.

Didnt get a lot of comments last time so would be good if more people could comment.

I understand that the site wont appeal to a lot of people but please take the time to review layout etc.

Many thanks'

Tony

I am on Linux and never got Java installed properly, your page comes up but it's all dishevelled. I am not sure if that is related to echallenged problem or my lack of java....

Also a few images aren't comming up, when I try to access them directly I get:
The image “http://www.ghostorbsociety.com/assets/images/db_images/db_Photo_21.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

So it seems like something on your server is messy.

I think Java is killing your website. I never actually waited for the thing to load in IE. In FireFox everything was all dishevelled, to use b_heyer's term.

1) Top banner not loading.
2) Side Menus are not readable.
3) Gallery pics are not loading.

I'm on window xp, and 98 right now.

suggest: check the directory if your images files are in the
right directory.;)

Good luck, hope to see the change soon.

Your url DOES attract me somehow, very interesting.
By looking at url, I would've visited...:)

Try this on for size. (make sure you change the width, height, ect..)
Code: [ Select ]
scrooling marquee code string
<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left" height="0" width="0" scrollamount="1" scrolldelay="50" onMouseOver="this.stop()" onMouseOut="this.start()">what needs to be scrolled<marquee>

thankyou very much, i will change the font of it then publish it on my site.

only people in IE will be able to see it, do you think that maybe i should stick with the one that i have got? surly more people will be able to view it then?

Tone2k11,

Friend, it looks *FANTASTIC* now.
Your banner showing, your side

Wonderful website, I rate 10/10
plus bonus.

I was a maniac of those pictures
and had lots of them in my comp
actually. ;)

Good luck with your site, and
if you need a link exchange,
always welcome. Just email me:)

Wow,
Now thats much better. I was a little scared at first, not about the subject matter I didn't know what I was looking at.

I like your site, some possible elements you may consider changing would be the navigation bar on left is difficult to read due to size and color choices. The text is also somewhat small.

Good Job

Cool pictures, I loved them. Generally it's a nice site and I liked it. Easy to navigate and everything is clear.

My only suggestion is that the buttons on the side could be changed in the following way:

Each button has a mouseover and a mouse off state, 12 buttons = 24 images.

As each one has the same actual image, just with different text each time. I've just done a quick test and your buttons are about 3kB in size, I just did something similar that was 500B (just for the oval).

As all buttons would be the same, only download the two images 1kB total!

This isn't a problem on this page - loaded nice and fast, just bear in mind that if you can leave the text out of an image (and add it using html) then it is worth doing because text doesn't compress well at all.

Nice site though.
