Hello all, I like what you guys have done with your web pages. If possible, I would like some feed back on my guild page, im having a few issues with the photo links, so as of now, you must scroll down to view all the pics, and its making my page too long for my liking, if anyone could let me know the ups and downs of my page I would greatly appreciate it. This is my first time doing this, but please dont hold back on the criticism.

thank you in advance

Zambimaru the site looks good... However everything seems a bit BIG!!!  You have to scroll from left to right on almost every page and the Fonts are huge.  Try streamlining it a bit.  The pictures are prolly whats making ur Home Page so huge, both left/right and up/down.  Mainly the Nov spotlight and Flickr slideshow size.  Resize them and it should look nice.




Can anyone please provide feedback on my Site... Every little bit helps.

Just a couple of notes: everything is very BIG.... doesn't make for easy reading or navigation. Also, I would suggest maybe breaking up some of the written areas some more, a person tends to get bored and skip to the end if there is too much written content in one area. But, maybe that is personal preference. Other than that, the site is very user-friendly, and eye catching. Hope this helps. And, if you feel the need to critique mine, please do.. think I am all done "fixing" it

I think the colors and the Box outlines look really nice.  Your banner is squished though.  The Tabs are all on the left too, can prolly space them out unless u want it that way. 

There is one Tab that has Forums, Mail & Chat.  Thats ALOT of stuff for 1 tab.  Especially once u get alot of forums going. 

In my opinion, the Code of conduct and How to Books are REALLY nice the way u did them.  But not very visible.  It kinda fades into the rest of the page, And that is VERY important information for anyone considering joining your guild.





You skipped looking at mine too

Surgonan...
     Humm, might be something to do with your browser vs mine? I use FF, and the books show up as a pop up with a white back round to me.... basically on their own.... wish I could get IE working on this comp to see if that's what it is. Same thing with the tabs... they show up to me as centered on the whole page...
     Yeah, I have been told about the banner too... think I am just gonna start from scratch on it.... cause it's either way to big, or squished. 
   And thanks!!! I didn't even think about once the forums started filling up... gonna have to change that!

And I did look at your site, just forgot to write about it... I blame it on being sick I really like it. I am jealous... you found a way to say everything that needs to be said in the codes, nice a short like, unlike my long winded ones... .. One question... how the heck do you get your enter tab to disappear, cause no matter what I do.. it sits there laughing at me I also like how you have your application process set up.... and it posts the answers right to your forum? How'd you do that? I am interested in learning that one. Ours is just the one through GP, and doesn't post. Wish I could give you some negs... but I really do like your  site... Oh wait, here's one... check your spelling and grammar on allot of your posts.... there are just words here and there that are off.

And now... time to work on the banner image... again... lol..

Much appreciated Surgonan, and RoniB. Both of you pointed out the same things basically, so I will work on first resizing the fonts, and pics to see how it looks, then I will work on breaking up the written areas.

I will look over your sites and see what I can learn/gain from them, as I have stated that this is indeed my first time, I have much to learn.

Thank you guys very much once again!

RoniB,

What i meant by the books was that the links r kinda hidden and blend in with the rest.  The Pop-ups are awesome, Im gonna steal them for mine =P

Best thing to do with the banner is to add the height and width pixels to the Control panel.  Cause right now it seems the site doesnt know how big it is supposed to be so its guessing and squishing it.

HMM... ur the first person that has said my Enter tab stays there... All i do is press the Enter button lol.

As far as the "Apply here" tab, it doesnt automatically post to the forums.  The application is an embeded webpage that i had created and it hosted somewhere else.  Pretty much what happens is when you fill it out and hit submit it sends all that infor in an Email to me and our Co-Leader, to our personal Emails.  So all we have to do is copy and paste to the forums.


And yea im not the best as spelling or grammar lol.  Ill have to get my brother to go through the site and double check everything.  If you could tell me where u sen spelling and grammar mistakes that would help alot =P

Surgonan,

   Hummm, now I see what you are talking bout. Any ideas on how to make em stand out a lil more? And I just changed the banner to a diff one.. easier fix than messing with numbers

Sorry, I must have mis-spoke.. your enter tab doesn't stay, mine does... or rather did... but I finally figured that out last night. so that's all fixed

As for the spelling and grammar stuff, I will have to go through the site again, and get it all down for you... will send you an email through GP after Thanks so much for the help though
