My Turn

Posted 08 August 2002 - 07:18 AM

I just wanted to see what everyone thought of my site (it's not a personal site as such, but not a commercial site either... Xifa is the organization name I use for developing software, and other stuff)...

http://xifa.net

Whilst I'm not open to actually making changes at this point (hehe, I don't have much time just now)... I will appreciate any comments/suggestions you have..

And yes, there's a whole load of under-construction pages (yes, yes, my bad), because trying to code and maintain the website is hard going sometimes.

Sugar coating rating: +1 (try and keep it positive, but if there's something really wrong, let me know).

TIA

I agree, I love the colors, it's clean, well layed out... however something just doesn't catch with me for that final "yes, it's excellent and perfect." It may be the dashed border around the content, perhaps try it in white?

i like it alot, nice colors its flows great, but they are right it is missing something, and i think the nav, its to... plain. like its in this huge box and then there is this little text for a nav, you got that cool kick ass logo on the top left which i LOVE, try something like that for the nav, it might "spice it up" that little bit to get rid of that blankyness.... wow is "blankyness" a word?.... oh well is now. ;)

Well, I have to agree with most people here saying that the colours are real nice, I'm a big fan of blue, but in small doses with other lighter colours to break it up. The flash in the banner is good, nice and simple, and it doesn't distract you when you're reading the main text.

One suggestion is finish the vortex effect in the table on the left, makes the site look incomplete.

Also, when I visited the page, there was an image placeholder next to the flash that was 99x101 px in size, and was also empty, not a good sign! (should have been wall.jpg)

Other than that, the banner is nice and simple, nice bold lines on the sphere, the flash is top quality stuff, but there's just too much space...

I'd give it 7/10 for being clean...

Very annoying, I decided to have a look a bit more through you're site after my first post, and when I went back "Home" wall.jpg appeared...

The joys of using free webspace....

no, your quite correct darkjedi, the wall.jpg file isn't there on the main index.

thats because the main index is a different page to the one the home button points too.

I do really like the site, but I would have to agree that the black dashes around the content don't quite fit.


i'm puzzled about the navigation too, why do all your links have double /'s in them?

and how come the home button goes to a different place from the main index, but has the same content?

Nice color scheme.Only one thing I see to be a little off and that would be the verticle spacing of your links.(Viewing through I.e 6) :blink:
