    Personally, I don't like the menu, but its okay you can keep it, if u want. Thats the only thing I don't like, everything else is perfect . I think the menu should have more space, it looks squished in. Maybe no underline, and no || (lines) stuff.

    EDIT: the site is taking a while to load.

    1. Odd domain.
    2. Centre-alignment is killing me.
    3. Black-on-blue navbar = bad idea.
    4. Ugly header.
    5. Not so great ad placement.
    6. Too simple.

    I didn't say that, I was simply suggesting what you need to work on. Personally, I see no point in saying "I love the idea, it's excellent -- you've got nothing you need to improve on."

    Ya i think i need to work on the links in the header, im tempted to import it all on a new template and better design but im not 100% sure if i should try to or not yet.

    The sites working fine for me comes up within 2 seconds.

    True, it was just the way you put it down in the thread.

    Maybe some art/logo. Also, I agree, the toolbar is awkward.

    Great idea. I think you can definitely monetize this!

    Overall, I like the colors you've chosen, they're just too close when utilized together in the grand scheme of things. The layout is also just a bit blocky, but that's easy to fix.
    1. Consider using a smaller and less blocky font. Verdana, Arial, and Helvetica will all do well in a smaller size but tend to look blocky when enlarged.
    2. Consider using a contrasting background since your header and center scheme are blue.
    3. I can definitely see where you were going with that top blue menu, but it's difficult to see.


      • Use a smaller font for the menu.
      • Center the menu.
      • Use more contrasting colors. For example, if you keep the bar dark blue, make the text white so it's easier to read.


      Love the smiley face! Those always make me smile.

    4. Decrease the size of the font in the paragraph text.
    5. Left justify the paragraph text.
    6. The Sign up now button is a bit large. Can you shrink it a bit?
    7. Decrease the font on the copyright text and push it down a bit more.
    8. Your signup page looks fine overall.
    9. Move your features text a bit to the right so it isn't hugging the border.
    10. Left justify and pull the text in a bit on your TOS page as well.
    11. Move the last modified line to the bottom of the TOS page.


    The text is well written and succinct. You're nearly there! Great first effort!

    Where are you going to place the ads?

    That's very generous of ya! It'd make his Web site look a whole lot better.
