    Rate My Site!!!

    Ok, so I got the basics up!

    Turn your pop up blocker off.... The background repeats, so I gotta fix it on the non-pop up page..

    What do you think of the design? Images, and so on!

    none of the nav links work either..


    THANKS!

    No thanks. How am I meant to know that if I found the site via somewhere else? Many of us (myself included) simply won't turn it off.

    NOFI but why do you think I've a popup blocker (Firefox)? To protect myself against site like yours. I don't like the background, but that's my opinion...

    U have a pop up blocker to prevent you from seeing the content on a site?

    Last time I checked, the blocker was for spam, ie adds and such.

    And if I don't know the site uses a popup, I'll assume the site has no content and move on. If I know the site uses a popup, I'll think it's stupid and move on.

    Popup blockers are for popups, which are annoying.

    yep. If I went to your site how would I know to turn off my pop-up blocker? Why do you even have a pop up window? Where's the freakin' back button if I try to browse your pop up window? What's up with that code? What does that image have to do with anything? And please don't tell me this is going to be yet another web design for sale page.

    I voted for sucks.

    I think you've probably got a good idea of what's wrong with your site by now.

    The background could be interesting... if it was in context, and if it didn't tile.

    I don't have pop-ups blocked, but yet all I see is a gray
    rock with a Javascript Error triangle in the status bar.
    I see nothing else ... no text, nothing.

    Using Windows 98, IE 6.0.2600

    refuse to turn off popup blocker - 90% of all users will agree.

    do not use popups - and if you want a new page to load - load it off a link (target="_blank")

    Edit:

    i'm undecided as i have not seen the site - make it avail without a popup and get a critic from me.

    voted "well....."

    public string ConjunctionJunction(string words, string phrases, string clauses)
    {
    return (String)(words + phrases + clauses);
    }
    <--- Was I Helpfull? Let me know ---<

    Lol, i dont even go as far to agree with that. target="_blank" is not valid XHTML 1.0 Strict, and I think that users should have the right to choose where their window loads, whether it be the same window, new window or new tab (I have firefox to open new-window links in new tabs anyway).

    I viewed the page from firefox options and still voted sucks... You have a DynamicDrive dropdown menu with a couple of pretty poorly made images, but the worst thing is, what you have has no need to be spawned in a new window. You could just have easily had the main content display in the first window, then I might have been able to give you a "Well...".

    It's not valid under any Strict DOCTYPE, not just XHTML 1.0
