Criticize my site.

Sure.

You call that a site? I CALL THAT CRAP!

LISTEN TO ME MAGGOT, IF YOU WANT TO BE A PART OF THIS THING WE CALL THE INTERWEB, YOU NEED TO SHAPE UP.... OR SHIP OUT!

Who Do you think you are???

What do you want to do with your life!


I'LL BET YOU DIDN'T EVEN GIVE HIM THE REACH AROUND, DID YOU MAGGOT!

Okay, I'll assume you're going for a vic20ish interface with the pure courrier look.

I'd highly, highly recommend a style sheet. Makes your life so much easier.

Notes:

I'd move the navigation to the top, and make it more prominent, make use of a table with borders, of if you want to use strict ansi type look and feel, use | and _ chars to accomplish it.

is the triangle going to be an imagemap? The 'Let the triangle guide you' suggests so. If it is going to be a navigation tool, I'd maybe put it along the left, rather than below content. if you're content ran too long, it'd be pushed off the screen, forcing users to scroll down to get to it.

Thanks

thanks, both of you...
Pete:
you are 100% right on doing the style sheet. i kind of want it to forgo the usual html stuff, for instance that triangle is ascii art in <pre> tags, there are no images at all on the site. as for the content i am going to try to keep it all on one screen w/out using a table, to keep that variable placement of the triangle/link bar. 800* 600 users will be fucked but I have no respect for those people anyways.

I see what you are saying about making the links bigger, that is a very good point. Once i get the style sheets in place i will try it out.

Im kind of going for the Z/OS look, the READY with the *** underneath is what you get when you log on, its cheesy and not many people will "get" the reference, but I dont want it to be something that is easy. The way files are referenced is userid.libtype.library(filename), so i was kind of trying for a bastardized version of that.

As for the triangle, "let the triangle guide you" was kind of referring to the band leading you, and also to the triangle pointing down at the links...but i guess it also points to the sides of the screen, and you're the second person who has told me that it's confusing...

this is my first try at designing a site that wasn't function first, so i think im willing to let function suffer a little bit.

Duffy:

YES SIR, ILL TRY HARDER NEXT TIME SIR! I think I am bryan, and i want to be a fireman. I didnt give him the reach around, but thats because I couldn't maneuver my way behind him.

whoops

Kind of looks like Tron threw up.

My message needs a title.

I'm not going to bother commenting on the visuals. A few technical questions: Why does your frameset contain one frame? Why frames at all? Frames = bad.

Also, as nicely as possible, I think you could stand to read an HTML tutorial that focuses on validity. You're misusing <br /> tags, you're USING the <font> tag (just as bad as <frameset> and all its evil, inbred children), and you’re using <h1> and <h3> for their presentation value alone; they’re meant to define a document’s hierarchy. You can style their font and size using stylesheets.

Good tutorial: http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_www.asp
Then, immediately afterwards: http://www.w3schools.com/xhtml/xhtml_intro.asp

The frames come with the free .tk domain. I have no control over that, unless i start paying $$

How do I misuse <br> tags? They are meant for line breaks, are they not? Is there some other way I should be handling the spacing on my page?

<h1> and <h3> tags I think still define the document hierarchy in this case, even though i skipped H2 altogether (for style and size, guilty). If i use <h1> at the top and then <h3> to define seperate sections after that, is that not a defined (albeit non-standard) hierarchy?

I hope I don't sound snarky, I appreciate the time you took to look at the site.


you?
