    Post Email Pranker Site Review

    So,

    I was sitting and browsing the internet when I got the idea to create an email pranking site. So, I sat down with photoshop for a minute, created a template then started coding the site. 8 hours later I am done and it can be viewed at: PrankEmail4.Me. Site is coded w3c standard xHTML 1.0 and CSS 2.0.

    I understand that there are other email prankers out there, but my main edge is that you can see what your victim (Who should be your friend, family member, or coworker) response. To pay for the server cost I put some google ads on and then they also have the ability to purchase tokens which raises the email limit.

    Tell me what you guys think and also if you have any rendering issues. I have tested on Windows Vista Firefox 3.5 and IE8, also Mac OS X Safari, Camino (Forgot version), and Firefox 3.5.

    Domains:
    - PrankEmail4.Me
    - PrankEmail4Me.com

    Thanks,
    C.Huffman

    Your link is wrong. The design could use some work. The font-family I think should be changed. Its not totally anonymous. If you view the headers of the email sent to you, see that it originates from your site.

    I don't really see the point of this. In some cases this can be illegal.

    I have to tell you that the font you used for the header needs to be swapped out. It's retro, but not in a good way...
    Your copy is okay, but not brilliant. I'm mainly concerned about the emboldening looking like links and the unprofessionalism of using "XD".
    It does smell like fraud, I must admit.

    OK, thanks for the reviews. I'll redesign the site, perhaps a white and blue. I also removed the red around the bolded words as I believe that was what Apostro was talking about?

    The site is offers another way for you to prank people you know, and users have to agree with a TOS saying they will not use it for any illegal activities also that PE4M does not hold responsibility. There are sites out like this, but after testing them today 95% (Actually all that I tested) did not work.

    Thanks again for the reviews and I'll work on the design once I get back.

    TOS or not, this will get used for purposes other than your intent. Not to mention getting you blacklisted, like those other sites most likely are.
