Hi guys,
I could be a little ahead of myself here, but I would like some assistance from some of you in regards to my new website. At this point, I just need some feedback regarding site functionality, any issues that there may be, errors, and general usage/aesthetic feedback. Ive been having some mailing issues, of which I am currently working on. If you cant login or do not receive the activation email - please let me know.

At this point the site is still very much in beta testing, and will be replaced shortly with the full version.

As I said, just looking for some feedback at this point, nothing fancy.

The site can be viewed here.

Thank you,
RJ

AHHHHHH

You have no Alt Tags, how dare you. Get some alt tags on them images, alt tags are for the blind, and we all know how much google loves helping the blind.

All of the links at the bottom of the page are dead.

I stand corrected, most your links are dead.

Here are some good programs,

But the layout seems ok.

Not sure what you are really looking for here, as we don't have much to review, but the layout looks decent...those photos at the top look a little diffused though.

I guess you're still working on the site, because the FAQ is filled with 'blah blah blah" (i found it really funny!)
I like the images you've selected. It would be great to have a few B&W images of kids or kids growing up in 80s, 90s.
I agree with Truce. The iamges look a little too diffused. The site will be more bright and eye catching once you sharpen the image.
Other wise, great colors.

Get this though - something really bizarre today.

I jumped on google just out of curiosity and typed in 'long lost friends' pages within australia, and guess what?

FIrst page!

I cant believe it - the site hasnt even been up a week!

Think your've done well to put that much information without making it to cluttered. Nice choice of colours also. Also i have to agree, the image at the top looks abit grainy

You have no Alt Tags, put some alt tags on the image to be more visible on the search engine.
Good speed and beautifull appearance.

Did you make the layout or is it a template? Either way looks nice but has 116 coding errors at w3cvalidator http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http% ... Findex.asp
