Hey y'all <IMG alt="image" SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Knowing how much you people have helped before I was askin a favour. Would it be possible for y'all to go and have a look at a website for me?

I just wanna know how you think it looks, how easy it is to use etc etc. I'm told that most of the reviews and stuff will be available by now so just look around and comment. Obviously constructive criticsm I can accept as we are looking to improve on this before the official opening in the New Year.

Hope to here from all of you soon.

The address is
PS2 Update

I've been asked to tell everyone reading this to bookmark this site. There is a lot more to come from this...

    Hi, I can't be bothered to browse through the whole site as it's not something I'm interested in, but...
    * The pop ups are really annoying
    * The writing is very small!
    Other than that it looks pretty professional, good graphics, nicely laid out.

    Feel free to come and slag my site off ;-) But me gentle, I'm only a dumb girl!

    what she said

    I think the whole thing looks very professionally done,
    only thing that is annoying at the moment are the dead links, lack of current info and the popup ads. But I spose you need money so ill let the last one go.
    But apart from that it looks very good.

    Looks good that, few pointers (some of which were mentioned earlier)

    * Popups - ugh!

    * On your menu bar, some of the longer titled menu's (your previews etc.) are very squashed and might be considered difficult to read.

    Other than that, looks pretty nice... <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    i really really really hate pop up ads
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    3 things.
    1/ popups
    2/ shring the white line at the top to at least 10 pixels (its two big)
    3/ have you permision two write reviews, from the puplishers?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    some dead links in reviews.

    <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> Popups <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> - I know very annoying but your comments have been passed on to designers and we are now looking into a domain name.

    <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> Dead Links <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> - These are being fished out and corrected. Whowhere, if you could email me a list of links that are definitely dead it'd be greatly appreciated.

    <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> Menu Bar Text <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> - Is, I'm told, being corrected.

    <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> "The White Line" <IMG alt="image" SRC="eek.gif" border="0"> - No problem at all. Consider it done once the "web team" is informed.

    Yes we do. Games are sent to us from the publishers for reviewing purposes and thats what we do - that aint a problem.

    Thanks for all your help and keep your comments coming...

    Again the ads etc....
    But what i found annoyign on the first page is that the font is times new roman right....well it's toooo quished.
  • Girl-From-MarsGirl-From-Mars Mega Poster Posts: 2,822
    just the design on the first page (im not interested in the content enough to go thru it)...

    times new roman - ick. try something more modern, arial, verdana... they're the ones i use, verdana especially, its the one that's used for the posts on thesite. look a lot fresher than times.

    those buttons on the side... very hard to read. font's horrible, needs to be a lot clearer. grey on lighter grey isnt good for contrast and for drawing your eyes in. and like justin said, some are squished.

    the main part of your site, the bit with all the test, black on white... looks a bit detached from the rest. try and make it more seamless maybe, blend it in with the other sides a bit more. maybe a universal background would be a good idea, and then ... no i dunno, i was gonna say something about keeping the side bits distinct, but with all of it the same colour it wouldnt work too well. forget that bit <IMG alt="image" SRC="tongue.gif" border="0">

    the title section with "ps2 update" in is good though... i just think having the same font ffor smaller writing is a bad idea. its one of those good for titles fonts, but not much else <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    anyway, hope ive not offended u too mch or anything <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    Nice to see you finally have that dooyoo banner up there... Now you can mail me again to tell me its there... <IMG alt="image" SRC="smile.gif" border="0">

    Oh but shhh, I'm not here as a representative of who I work for, but just as a regular user on his time off.

    The site looks slick and professional, but the popups and even worse, the popup script dialog asking me to vote for the site... well those are bad.

    If you must have the script box appear, asking for votes, then make it appear on the unloading of the page, rather than asking me to vote before I've seen the page - make sense?

    Hope the dooyoo banner makes you some cash.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Few things here:
    • Popups = bad, especially the "vote for us" messagebox.
    • The main text (black on white background) is times new Roman, which I'm not a fan of. Arial would be easier to read.
    • The white background of the main section seems a little tacky and lacking in finesses compared to the graphics on the rest of the site. Perhaps a little rounding at the corners or something inventive with tables could sort this.

    I didn't have time to see the whole site, but there's my $0.02 anyway.
