So then I will.

I still working on my site, a website are never finished, but it is open for all and it would be nice to get some feedback.

So what's going on:

- Place spots from every where
- Have you on profile
- Have you on gallery
- Upload photos to spots where you recognise
- Forums
- Games
- Rate other users photos
- PM
- and more...
- Your own created spots can have Google Adsense from you!

Thank your for the Feedback
Jérôme

You have a good start and a good name. You need to work on communicating your idea to everyone a little more effectively.

My first suggestion would be to have a giant world map on the front of the site with everyone's location on it. This would be a great visual way to show everyone what you mean by 'pin my place'.

On that world map you can show the newest spots and have a mouseOver to see the pictures. Then, beside the map have the short introduction and a giant 'Sign Up Now' button. Right now I have to search on the page to figure out how to sign up - which is never a good thing.

You have a great idea but writing does not appear to be one of your strongpoints. So I have rephrased some of your titles for you. Use them if you want...

'get your place' => This doesn't add anything to the title but I don't know enough about your site to suggest a better slogan.

'Not a member? signUP' => Just 'Register' or 'Sign Up' will do.

'New cool People' => How about 'New Cool Pins'?

'more Pin`s' => 'More Pins'

'Advertisment' => 'Advertisement' or maybe 'Sponsor'

'What's Online' => Just 'Online' or 'Who's Online'.

'SignUp today it's free and get pinned.' => Hmmm I think 'get pinned' might have a slightly wrong connotation so try just 'Sign Up Free'.

--------

Can I have more than one pin? Many people, including myself, live at more than one location so it would be a good feature to add.

Well, it's improving.

I see you haven't changed 'New cool People'. It's a title so it should be in title case - meaning 'New Cool People'. To me, it just looks amateur to have titles that aren't in title case. Having them part way is even worse.

Also, 'Advertisement' is misspelled on your page as I suggested already. You misspelled it twice!

I'm curious why the 'P' in 'Sign UP' is capitalized.

'Show your spots on PINmyPlace'? Firstly, what is the point of this sentence? I already know I'm visiting PINmyPlace, and 'Show your spots' doesn't tell me what the site is about very well.

To be honest I really like the whole design. I thinked you locked it down pretty nicely. Not only does it look professional but it is also appealing to the eye which is very important.

In the frist two seconds I was on the site I was tempted to stay and find out more.

If I could make one suggestion it would be the following: I think that your new game section is really important to you site and your users. I would move back above the fold and move down your google ads. It should not affect your revenue at all. As people should want to find out more about your site they will scroll down to the bottom.

Good luck!

Hi,

I really like the site. a fun place to chat and play. The pinning your location on the map is great although it tool a long time to load you may want to look at the google map api's new marker manager which keeps will render a subset of the markers depending on the zoom level.

One thing to watch out for, is to not throw in the kitchen sink when it comes to features, keep it simple and easy.
