I like the site man the only problems that I see are in the right column. Everything is nicely padded but then the right column stuff runs right up against that right edge. I like what you did with the first thing on the right try to so that with everything on that side.

So i should make the right side, all look like this: http://www.ridiculouslyrandom.com/button2.gif ?

Would that be better looking?

Thank you for the review.

I might make the right side look like the left side?

And if you look on the right side and refresh, the top images change so it can scroll through the new features.

Okay ... The part that says "newest random video's" looks off a bit .... The header background images looks strange ... Almost pixelized ... and the video's are on the one side of that column and the other side is empty ... I'm using IE7

Oh my Word ... 188 Validation errors ... http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http% ... dom.com%2F ... Somebody's going to be fixing a lot of errors ...

Also I think it would be wise for you to put some rollovers in your left hand side menu, because of the small font size ...

Why does your header image link to your home page when I am on the home page, same with the home button, I think you should disable those

Also I wanted to register but the confirmation code image never appears, it's just that little white block with the cross in, so how can I give you the code if I don't ever get to see the image ...

You should really upgrade from IE7, and i dont know why the image verification wouldn't be working.. it is fine on my IE, Safari, Firefox, Opera, and a site browser test online.

Header link image links to the home page on every site.

Wow, don't know why. I am going to look at the validation errors now. Fixing within 48 hours. Just a bad html editor problem and i wasn't paying attention. :oops:

Videos are on one side, a picture is on the left.

Anyone else can confirm?

Okay I love it now, I don't think you need to add anything to make it look or function better, I think now is the time to try and improve your SEO ... so that you can get higher in the search engines so that other random people can get to your site ...

I played around in your site for a good while and everything worked fine and looks good. The ONLY nit pick I would have is that for me the left hand menu text just look stoo small compared with the rest of the page. but that is really just personal preference. Other than that I dont have much to criticise about - I like it.
