    Check my new web site out....give me feedback

    Whats up everyone. I want to thank my buddy Dave Deffes who has been working on my site all week and we pretty much have it completed except an intro theme song which were working on and adding a bunch of pictures of us and our friends in the Central Florida area . Let me know what you think about it.

    constructive feedback: leave the crazy font for the name... put all the links as a more simple font and make it fit to fewer pages. People are more likely to surf around the less times you have to hit 'back'.



    good work, keep it up.

    I have not checked out the entire site yet but came up with something that may help you out...



    I kind of like the dripping blood font for the title, but to use it for the links to other pages and text on those pages is a bit much. I found it a little tough to read. A busy font on a busy background makes for a tired reader.... A tired reader will leave your site faster than one that easily read...



    Just trying to help...

    ugh...your site is a prime example of horrible design and a waste of webspace. The Geiger bg is really distracting and you overuse the dripping blood font. Please if you need any help with designing a web site, you can drop me a PM. That's all I do for a living and I could give you some help. Your graphics are too wide and most will have to scroll to the right to see the whole page(big no no). Shrink your graphics down to around 1000px wide so if you are designing for 1024x768 it will fit onto the screen without scrolling.



    Your site, BTW, is 1997 design-wise.

    Not bad...my recommendation would be to use higher res pictures...most people have highspeed internet these days....good high res pictures make me look at a picture longer than crappy pics.



    ...and the same font throughout is too much for me also.



    Nice work.

    I agree with this assesment. What exactly do you sell or do? I could not figure that out from the confusing site and difficult to read text. The graphics are ok, way overdone and just not my taste.

    In refrence to the bad feedback:



    Thanks for the contructive criticism, however I would like to point out that in regard to the "over abundantly" used blood font...That is all a matter of personal preference. Some like it, some don't...and the owner of the site happens to love it. I do find it insulting that you would call it a waste of webspace...This site was done completely with MS publisher and if you know anything at all about publisher then you know that it is very limited so keep those kinds of comments to yourslef. Anyway...there is no need for an argumentative response. I just wanted to give a response to the neg fb. Thanks.

    Also...i did design it for a 1024x768 res in which the width is perfect. Anything less of a res would be somewhat "out-of-date". Publisher does not allow dynamic widths.

    Ok well first "Crippler" i can de-tune your bike in a heart beat so be careful upon what you wish for. The blood font..... well i think there should be more. As far as what i do , click performance and it describes my buisness and last but not least when you say its a waste of space..... well thats a pretty negative feedback on your part which isnt constructive critisism that were asking for and quite frankly it sounds like your just trying to make your self and your so called web design skills look better, so good for you and your abilities. Oh and Geiger is spelled GIGER i think Hans Rudi has earned the correct spelling . Thanks to everyone else and we will consider some minor changes.
