LOL u seem desperate for more reviews :D .

OK, I cant access websolutionarchives.com. I get a 404 error. Check into that. Your Templates Archive site looks very good. Quick load, neat content. You may want to add a rollover on your top navigation. (Home, mail, faq, etc.) Also, some of your downloads do not work. So, it seems like you are still getting it finished, but I rate it 8/10 so far :)

thanks,
Websolution is offline at this moment due to some paper work that still has to be done.

For the rollover on the topmost link... well i'll work on that soon. Now to the main point...
Could you please let me know which downloads don't work?

Greetings,

This review is for: TemplatesArchive

Very nice simple design. As long as you keep the ads to a minimum it will be a great site in a year. Navigation is very simple and easy to follow. I'm not a fan of the colors, but they are fairly easy on the eyes.

Overall good job.

the dude on the page is really roughly cut out.. i think you need to redo him couse his dragging down the rest of the site..

the logo needs improvement.. a logo should be unique that logo is just text in different colors.. i had to look at the site three times to remember the logo..

the layout as a whole is to spaced out.. with that little content i think you would be better off doing a layout for 800*600 instead of 1024*768

keep up the good work..

Overall you've got a wonderful colour scheme. The only thing I'm not ecstatic about is the orange rollover highlight.

If you're targeting an English-speaking audience, I would humbly suggest that you proofread your verbiage.

I wonder if you might give your templates "friendly" names in addition to their internal names? ID-Classic-05 reads like an internal identifier, but "Cool Breeze" (or something, just making that up) might help me remember that calming look and blue-green colour better.

Also, I notice that when I click on a template link in the "What's New" section, I am taken to the section, rather than to the template. If I wanted to see the section, I would've clicked on the section; I clicked on the template, so I would like to see the template. :)

I found the Google AdSense thing directly beneath "What's New" to be distracting. It wasn't immediately clear that the "What's New" indicator had anything to do with the content beneath it. If positioning the Google thing beneath the new content is feasible, I would recommend it.

As the owner of the site, I guess I understand why you've got it the way you do, but as a visitor to the site, I would suggest some sort of visual identifier for the Google ads. The way you've currently got them situated on the page, it's very easy to think that they are a part of your site. On one hand, people accidentally clicking on the ads is good for you, so maybe that's intentional; on the other hand, clicking on them takes people away from your site, possibly never to return, so maybe you don't want that. Something to consider, at any rate.

Hth, and keep up the wonderful work. With so many paid template sites around, yours, with its standards-compliant, free, aesthetically-pleasing templates, is definitely one that I'll be revisiting. Thanks for providing this resource to the community. :)

Everything is great on your website. Just that I'm not too keen on some of the designs you've created. Apart from that, everything else is great!
