Howdy All,

Please critique my website at:

http://www.kindakarma.com

It's a website where people can rate and get recommendations for movies, authors, games and music.

Clever idea for a site! I found the blue rating scale somewhat confusing. On the page that lists items in a category, you just have the blue bars showing the rating. Ahhh, I guess the blue bars show the percentage of people that voted each category! Alright, I got it figured out now :) I'd recommend throwing a question in the FAQ about that ('what do the rating bars mean?')

The design of the site is pretty good... it's nice and simple. The colour scheme works well together. Good idea!

Nice idea for site, combining all review resources into one place where users can find them easily. I would use the extra white space in the main page to show featured reviews and would go with the blue color theme throughout the site (don't switch to grey). Don't really understand these slogans under name ("It's the cops! Let's cheese it! ") but they're kinda fun and a neat bit of code, so I like it. The site overall is kinda neat and I think it will be great!

Thanks for the feedback. I'm considering doing a color scheme change, but I went through several iterations and this was the best one.

I'm in the middle of a few code changes and I'll post here when they're done.

I've made a few changes, including some fixes under IE. Anyone care to comment?

Anyone have any tips with regards to using params in URLs vs. direct page links? My site uses parameters and a handful of base pages, but I've heard that using direct pages can help with pagerank. Anyone have any info on this?
