First Impression 10/10: As soon as I enter your site, I get this really cool vibe from your graphics site because of the layout. It's dark and mysterious and makes me want to find out more about whats in your site. You have a kind of layout that I've never seen anyone have. It's great!
Layout 20/20: Your new layout is so much better than the other one, and I still liked the other one. I love the picture behind the main scrollbar, and I think you edited the image very well.
Neatness 10/10: I can find everything very easily on your site with the sidebar navigation. I checked each one of your navigation links, and they all took me to the place you specified. I found everything I needed to find. :3 The back to top buttons are great, too.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: I read through all of your text on your page, and I could not find anything wrong. You use perfect grammar and perfect spelling. BUT, you misspelled Klefta because you spelled it Kefka. DUH! (Inside joke)
Uniqueness 10/10: Though a graphic site certainly isn't an original idea, you layout is very unique and different. I've never seen another layout like yours because I can tell its an original L-- *cough* I mean Kitty idea. *hopes Kitty won't hurt me* I also like the name of your site. Shattered Crystals has a certain ring to it. :3
Updates: 10/10: You're a pro updater. You keep your "clients" informed of the newest things that go on with Shattered Crystals.
Content 20/20: Your graphics are top quality, and I can tell that you spend a lot of time on them. You have both quality and quantity with your site. You're doing an awesome job with your site.
Other 10/10: I like how you've added special little things to your site such as the graphics of neopet characters you've drawn. Which are very good by way, Kitty!

First Impression 9/10: When I first enter your site, I see your layout and since it mostly has neutral colors it doesn't exactly pop out. Maybe if you edited the colors, you could make it more creative and brighter looking. It loads quickly, so that is a plus.
Layout 17/20: Your layout is moved to the right side of my computer screen so you may want to try to center the layout by adjusting the px between the style tags a bit. Also try some more brighter colors to make the layout seem more interesting. I do like the structure of it, though.
Neatness 10/10: I found everything on your site very easily because there's really not much to navigate through. Your site it easy to use and is very organized.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No spelling or grammar mistakes. Great job!
Uniqueness 8/10: A graphic site really isn't an original idea, but the graphic "packages" are. Twigg is a very unique name, though. Your site is good, but there really isn't anything unique about your site.
Updates: 9/10: You update quite often, but I'm not sure as to why you delete the updates if they are in a scroll box.
Content 18/20: You don't really have a lot of examples to show people your graphics, but you're graphics are very nice. If they weren't, I wouldn't have ordered buttons, now would I? :P
Other 8/10: You should look into getting a counter from boingdragon to see how many visitors you have. The marquee for your affies is very fast, so I would recommend getting rid of the marquee or slowing it down a bit.
Overall 89/100: You made an 89%. You site is great, and you only have a few things to work on. Keep up the good work!
Reviewed on February 28, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I first enter your site, I get this really cool impression from the layouts. I love the dancers in the header and the saying in the prettyful font that you use.
Layout 20/20: One word. WOW. Your layout is amazing! It's looks totally original and the color scheme is fantastic. I really like the different columns because it makes it even better. It's even better if your layout is made by you or one of your staff.
Neatness 9/10: Your page is very organized. I could find everything on your page with ease. Things were very easy to find with your navigation. I would highly suggest adding "back to top" buttons to your site.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Great! No spelling or grammar mistakes!
Uniqueness 10/10: Precious Dreams is a very original name, and so is the layout. I've never, ever seen another layout like yours. Your site just screams uniqueness.
Updates: 9/10: You are a good updater, but recently you've not been updating as much. And I read that most recent update. Repeat after me, Gabby. I will not delete my awesome site named Precious Dreams. Now that we established that. Let's move on.
Content 20/20: Your graphics are awesome! You have a very wide range from pet lookups to buttons to shields. Your site is booming with creativity. Your graphics are great!

First Impression 9/10: When I first enter your site, I get a nice first impression but the marquee that says "welcome to neodessert" through me off for a second there. O.O
Layout 18/20: Your layout is simple, but it's nice. I like the background because it goes with the theme of the site. The pink font is a little bit hard to read up against the white background.
Neatness 9/10: You don't have any navigation, so I took a point off for that. Some navigation would be good. C: The pictures were well organized next to each other.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Perfect. No mistakes here.
Uniqueness 10/10: I have to say, your site is very creative. I have never seen another idea like NeoDesserts. It is a very original and creative idea.

Content 18/20: Everything that has to do with desserts is here except for doughnuts and cake. :O You may want to add those, too. :D

Overall 93/100: You made a 93%! You have a great site, and with a just a little work, it could be better. Nice job!
Reviewed on February 28, 2009.
First Impression 9/10: As soon as I enter your site, I immediately feel welcome. The colors really aren't all that bright, so it doesn't make it seem as interesting. You might want to add a few colors to brighten it up.
Layout 19/20: Though it doesn't have a lot of color, it is a good layout. It is very clean and has a cool vibe coming from it. Sort of mysterious. Nice. =)

Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Where you should have boingdragon(dot)com, you put boingdragon(dot)come.

Siddey's HTML/CSS Help
Reviewed on February 28, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: As soon as I open the tab to go into the site, I was drawn to the prettyful header and the colors. It's an great header. I have no idea how you people do that, but it's absolutely amazing.
Layout 20/20: Your layout is awesome, just like every layout you make. The header is absolutely gorgeous, and the background and colors match perfectly. The font colors also match the rest of the layout. A perfect match.

Spooky's Untaken Names
This site was reviewed on March 1, 2009
First Impression 6/10: As soon as I enter the site, it strikes me as a bit boring. It's all variations one color, which makes it bland. Try adding some more bright colors to the layout.
Layout 15/20: I see that layout used a lot. All of your content is moved on to the left side of my computer screen. All the purple really isn't all that great. The sidebar is also way lower than wear the main content column begins. Try fixing that, or maybe get a new layout.
Neatness 10/10: You have navigation and it's very easy to use. Great job.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes here.
Uniqueness 4/10: An untaken name site isn't very original, and neither is the layout. I see it used quite often, and nothing really yells unique at me. But I do like the neomail me button.
Updates 4/10: You only have three updates in almost eight months. Your update box is also in a very, very fast marquee no one can read. I would suggest a scroll bar. I can give you the code.
Content 17/20: You really don't have a lot of names, but the ones you do have are really good. I may use one. :3 Try adding some more names and expanding your sites.
Other 10/10: Nothing else. :D
Overall 76/100: You made a 76%. Not the best score, but if you follow the advice above, you'll have yourself great site. You just need a little help. :3
Reviewed on March 1, 2009
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, I immediately notice the background. It's very bright and creative and colorful.
Layout 18/20: I like your header, but it would look better if you made it the same size as the content column. The font is very small so I would make it a little bit bigger for people to read it easier.
Neatness 7/10: Your have navigation, but you have two scrollboxes that exceed the content column. It doesn't make it as prettyful. D:
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes here!
Uniqueness 10/10: The background is very creative, and so is the header. :]
Updates: 10/10: You keep your site updated.
Content 19/20: You have several sites, but try to get some sites for the empty categories.

Overall 94/100: You made a 94%. Great job! Just follow some suggestions above, and you will soon have a great site.
The Amethyst Pages
Reviewed on March 3, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, I'm drawn to the pretty colors and the mysterious color pallet you use on your layout. It totally makes me want to stay.
Layout 19/20: I love the layout. Especially the background and header. The text matches very well, and I totally love it. But, I think you should make the page more centered by adjusting the px in between the style tags.
Neatness 7/10: You page has very easy navigation, but I think you should have all of your buttons the exact same size. Make that a rule, like I have with my new directory that has a link to it on the sidebar under my other pages. You also need to get rid of some of those ugly links borders about some buttons.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Perfect! :D
Uniqueness 9/10: A directory isn't an original idea, but I do like the layout. The background is creative and totally stands out.
Updates: 8/10: You have about two updates but it seems like your site has been around a long time.
Content 20/20: You have many buttons for different sections, and that is totally awesome! If someone ever needs help, they can just make a trip to your page. Great job here.
Other 8/10: The music throws me off a bit, because it takes a bit longer to load with the music, and, with your kind of site, it's best to make it load as fast as possible.
Overall 91/100: You made a 91%! Great job!
B's Avatar Guide
Reviewed on March 4, 2009
First Impression 9/10: When I enter your site, I really notice the header and background. I like how they compliment the site theme. But when I see the number of avatars count you have on your page, which is only 47, I get a little thrown off.
Layout 19/20: The colors of the scrollbar in Internet Explored really don't go well with your site layout. It makes everything clash. Try changing the colors.
Neatness 6/10: You site is organized, as are the avvies, but I think, as you show people to get more avatars, you should break them up in sections and add navigation. You also have link borders around several of your affies, your "neomail me" and "my lookup" images, and in your own link back buttons. Link borders are ugly, and annoy me greatly. I can give you the code to get rid of it, if you like.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes here.
Uniqueness 9/10: An avatar guide really isn't an original idea, but I am a fan of the layout. The header, text color, and background matches very well.
Updates: 10/10: You update quite often.
Content 18/20: I like you you explain the avatars you have on your page, but there are over 250 avatars. 47 really isn't that much compared to those.
Other 9/10: You don't have a counter. :O Get one from boingdragon. I'd also appreciate you putting my button under a new section for reviews, and not under affies.
Overall 90/100: You made a 90%! You have a great site, but it needs a bit of work.
No Sweat Neopoints
Reviewed on March 6, 2009
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, I immediately notice the awesome lime green color. You're in luck, it's my second favorite color. It looks like it is a very organized site so far.
Layout 20/20: I adore the layout. It is very easy to look through, and loads quickly also. I love the lime green color.
Neatness 9/10: Your navigation is easy to use, and I love how you split everything up into organized sections. But, I am looking at your affiliates list and your affie "Xweetok World", her button isn't softened like the others are. D:
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes here. You is a gud speler annd gramer persin!
Uniqueness 9/10: Your site name is unique and so is the layout. But there are lots of dailies guides out there, so not a real unique idea.
Updates: 6/10: You've updated six times in three months. Try updating more, even about little things like new affies, new reviews, touchups around your site etc. etc.
Content 20/20: I earned 25k in forty five minutes. Very easy to use.
Other 10/10: Nothing else. :D
Overall 94/100: You made a 94%! Great job! Just try updating a bit more, and fix that affie.
Reviewed on March 7, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I get enter your site, I'm drawn to the header. I really like that. I also like the colors you use in your layout. It makes me want to stay.
Layout 20/20: I really like the layout. The two columns seem appropriate for a graphic site. I really like the colors for the font background in your layout.
Neatness 7/10: Ahhh! Link borders! There is a link border around your last button. And why are your updates in no scrollbox? They need to be in an organized scroll bar. I can neomail you the code if you need it. I also think the navigation around neopets.com should be more to the top. But you also need site navigation. Anchor links.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Yay! English!
Uniqueness 6/10: A graphic site isn't very original, but neither is the graphics. The layout is premade, and looks like it hasn't been edited too much since it was up there.
Updates: 6/10: You haven't updated in almost two weeks. That's not very good. :O You also need the scrollbar for the updates.
Content 4/20: Not only do you have not many graphics, but most of them are just plain pictures without words. And the other graphics are just pictures with words. And I still don't understand why you have your first banner. If you say it's bad, why do you still have it up there? Spice up the graphics. Make them better and add more because from where I'm sitting, your site needs some work.
Other 8/10: You need a counter, that's always important. ^^ And it's be more organized if you added the reviewers underneath a section for reviews.
Overall 71/100: You need a 71%. Your site just needs some more work, and, I'm sure, you'll work your way up to the top. :D
Kitty's GIMP Tutorial
Reviewed on March 7, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, I get drawn to the shiny header. Yeah, I'm a sucker for those things. It makes the site look very cool and unique. The layout also has welcoming colors in it.
Layout 20/20: Fabulous! I love the two column of the layout, and the colors. You use a lot of different colors for text so it spices it up quite a bit. Great job. :D
Neatness 10/10: You have a lot of scrolling on your site, so it is good to have good navigation like you do. You even have the back to top buttons.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: OMG! You are edumacated!
Uniqueness 10/10: I've never seen a header like yours anywhere else, and I've also never heard of another GIMP tutorial in Neopian existence. It's a very original Kitty idea. :D
Updates: 10/10: You update often, and even mention me in the updates. That makes Sarah feel very, very special.
Content 20/20: As the first person to ever test out your GIMP tutorial, I have to say everything is explained very well, and that I can understand everything. Things have to be explained really well for me to understand them. You should know. :D
Other 10/10: You have a counter, no music, and everything loads properly, so you're good. :D
Overall 100/100: You made a 100%. For mentioning my fabulous name so many time, and for being an awesome friend, you get a bonus point. Sooo.....you made a 101%! ILY!
You qualify for an uber award.

Reviewed on March 9, 2009.
This site is now closed. :(
First Impression 5/10: When I enter your site it seems really boring because all I see is bland text and a creamy colored background. It doesn't really scream wow.
Layout 3/20: Erm, this is just the thing. You don't have a layout. I gave you a few points because you have a background, but that is rather bland too. I can give you links to premade layouts if you need it.
Neatness 4/10: No navigation, all the buttons are different sizes, and you have ugly link borders around a lot of them.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You passed this part. :D
Uniqueness 2/10: Well, the name isn't very unique, and neither is the background or idea for a directory. Spice up your guide. Come up with an awesome name, get a cool layout, and more content.
Updates: 0/10: There are no updates. Updating is key to a good site.
Content 4/20: You only have a few buttons for your content. And you listed Pheo's guide twice. You need to add some more buttons for more content.
Other 5/10: No counter, and you missing a lot of things for a good directory. For examples of a things a good directory has, check out my directory. The button is on the sidebar.
Overall 33/100: You made a 33%. That's not the best score, but I'm sure get a better score if you follow some suggestions above. I'll give you some helpful codes and stuff for your site if you need help. Also, add smaller link back buttons. :P
Zoloia's Flashing Blinkies
Reviewed on March 10, 2009.
First Impression 9/10: When I enter your site, I see the lime green, which I totally love. The background is so awesome, too! What may draw more attention is if you made a really amazing header or a welcoming blinkie.
Layout 19/20: It is premade, but I still like the layout. The colors seem to go together quite well, but I still think a really cool header or welcoming blinkie would help.
Neatness 8/10: I don't really get what the "Extra, extra, click all about it" sign does for your site. I'd get rid of that if I were you. I'd also move the link back buttons up more to the top of the site under navigation, then the other stuff. I also like how the link back buttons are in a scrollbar. Nice touch.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No typos that I found. Yay.
Uniqueness 9/10: Blinkie sites aren't original, but I don't see a lot of them. I think you should request as custom layout specifically for your site. It would ooze uniqueness then!
Updates: 10/10: You update almost everyday. Great job.
Content 19/20: I love your blinkies, but for some reason some of the pet images are blurry. But I still really like your content. It's gorgeous and makes me wonder how in Neopia you do it.
Other 10/10: Nothing else. :D
Overall 94/100: You made a 94%! Awesome job!
Vintage Renewal Directory
Re-Reviewed on April 3, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I first read your site's name, I see the old car, and that establishes the name of vintage.
Layout 19/20: It isn't made by you, but that's okay. The background is a little bit blinding when you are trying to read the content. Maybe try softening it up a bit with a program like GIMP or Photoshop?
Neatness 6/10: You back to top buttons don't even take me to the top. And the very first one is too close to the rules, so you may want to spread it out. Under your navigation, how come beside some you have bulletpoints, and others not?
Spelling/Grammar 9/10: Everything is good except for under screenies, there is two Neko's Screenies, and you put diff screenies, beside the second one. It looks more professional if you would spell it out.
Uniqueness 9/10: A directory isn't too original, but it is very unique because of the name, car theme, and layout.
Updates: 9/10: They're a lot better now, but for some reason you have the date for an update and the previous update really close. Try spacing that out a bit.
Content 20/20: I love how you put subheaders and stuff for the HTML. It's a lot more organized than my last review.
Other 10/10: Nothing here. =)
Overall 90/100: You made an 90%. Your site is improving a lot. Just a few more things to fix. Keep up the great work!
Jonas Love Music
Reviewed on March 14, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: I'm not a Jonas fan, but for this review, I shall pretend to be. When I enter your site, I see the picture of the Jonas Brothers and the big letters Jonas Love. It draws attention and makes me want to stay.
Layout 18/20: Your layout is clean and totally Jonas themed, but it doesn't seem to have a lot of colors in it. Maybe play with the font color or something?
Neatness 8/10: Your page is organized with a scrollbar, but you may want to add some navigation for the first scrollbar because of lots of content there.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes that I saw.
Uniqueness 8/10: A music site isn't too original, but to make it a bit more unique, maybe you should offer some other premade music by some other Disney channel stars.
Updates: 0/10: You have no updates. D: You should tell people when you add a new song, fill in a request, or make a change on your site.
Content 20/20: Lots of songs, and I'm sure those Jonas Brother fans out there love them. They are very easy to use. Great job.
Other 8/10: You should have a counter, and you also need some 88x31 link back buttons. Your buttons are just a picture with some simple text on it.
Overall 82/100: You made an 82%. You are doing really well so far, but you need to start updating. That's very important. Also follow the little things I mentioned above.
Jupiter Crystal Directory
Reviewed on March 14, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site I see lots of pretty green, and that awesome Sailor Jupiter header. I hate so much that they cancelled that show. It was awesome! Okay, back to the review. I really like all that green. Very gorgeous.
Layout 20/20: You edited it quite a bit yourself, and it look really great. I love the header, and, forget what the other reviewer said, I can totally read the title.
Neatness 10/10: You have navigation AND back to top buttons! They all work very well, and the navigation is placed at the top of your page, a very good spot for navigation.
Spelling/Grammar 5/10: You need a bit of help in this sentence:
If you want to be added just neomail me you must have a 88x31 link button though (You haven't got one thats Ok see Link Me Section.),If your button is bigger I will re-size it 88x31 to fit my site So if its big it may look squished."
It should be redone as this:
If you want to be added just neomail me. You must have a 88x31 link button though. If you haven't got one, that's ok. See the Link Me Section. If your button is bigger I will re-size it 88x31 to fit my site. So if its big, it may look squished.
Just some punctuation and grammar help there. :3
And one more sentence which needs help.
Cannot find a Section to fit your Site?"
Should be fixed as:

Uniqueness 10/10: I've never seen another site that is Sailor Jupiter themed, and the layout is so awesome. It looks totally original. And the name is very original also.
Updates: 10/10: You updated often, and you tell people what happens with your site.
Content 19/20: For not being up long, you have a lot of sites. Including mine. Your buttons are all the same size, and are very organized. But I think you should either make them all have borders or none of them have borders. It just makes it look better. ^^
Other 10/10: Nothing else. You have a counter and no annoying music. Yay. :D
Overall 94/100: You made a 94%! Your site is really great, and it just needs a bit of grammar and punctuation help.

Sweet Morango Reviews
Reviewed on April 3, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: Whenever I enter your site, I can tell it is a review site. I totally love the orange and the header.
Layout 20/20: It's premade, yes, but it really goes with the name of your site. I have no idea what a morango is, but it reminds me or orange, and your layout is orange. So, yeah, it's all good. :P
Neatness 4/10: Well....you have link borders around your buttons. I'll give you the code to get rid of them. Also on the last review you have not put a space between the button and review. I would also suggest putting all your reviews in a big scroll box like my site. It needs less scrolling that way. You also don't have any navigation. D: It only needs to be simple like mine on the sidebar. I would also try resizing all the affie buttons to one size.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You pay attention in class. xD
Uniqueness 10/10: Your site name is incredibly unique, and so is the orange layout. I've also never seen awards like yours. ;D
Updates: 0/10: Awwww...There are no updates. D: You do need to start updating, even if it is just simple updates like, "I reviewed one site today."
Content 20/20: Your reviews look fair and honest. They'd look a lot better in a scrollbox, though.
Other 9/10: You may want to add a counter to track your visitor number.
Overall 83/100: You have a really great site, and you would have gotten an A if it wasn't for those pesky reviews. Simply start reviewing, and work on some organization skills, and everything will be great. I will re-review your site, if you'd like a better grade. :3
Monkey Blast Graphics
Reviewed on April 17, 2009.
First Impression 7/10: When I first enter your site. I take in the big banner at the top. It is very stretched and pixelly. It makes me think that the rest of your graphics may be of bad quality, too.
Layout 13/20: Your banner is incredibly stretched, and it makes me want to leave your site immediately. A banner is always supposed to be good, not stretched to where we can't tell what it is. On your right sidebar the credit section is is not in the sidebar, but outside of it. You should fix that. The font is also a very boring color, you should try having it in different colors to match the different colors of your layout.
Neatness 5/10: You have a problem with link borders. You have them in your affies, your buttons, and your graphics. Buy some link-border-be-gone to do us all a favor. You should also make all of your affie buttons the same size. I can give your codes for getting rid of link borders and resizing buttons. You should also have some navigation that can take you to the top, banners, buttons, and whatever else. ^^
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes that I saw. Congrats, you pay attention in English class.
Uniqueness 7/10: Really not much is unique about your site. Your name is original, but your graphics and layout really aren't different from anything else I've seen.
Updates: 0/10: I looked for the updates, but there wasn't any! You should always have updates in an organized scrollbox. Always, always, always!
Content 10/20: Your graphics are not much different from anything I've seen. They are very plain and a bit boring. You should try using a different program to make graphics. Paint really isn't the best. Have you tried GIMP? A friend of mine has a tutorial for it if you click here. You should try to create your own style of making graphics. Look at other graphic sites for ways to have a great graphic site. Or better yet, try this guide.
Other 8/10: You should have a counter on your page. You can get one from boingdragon. I'd like to know why my button is under your affies. I have said this before to people and I will say it again, I am your reviewer, not your affiliate. No music and anything else that I see, so you're good. :D
Overall 60/100: You made a 60%. That's not the best grade in the world, but I do think you can do a lot better. You need to work on your layout a bit with that banner, and you need to improve the quality of your graphics. That's not too bad for your first review. :)
Reviewed on April 17, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: As soon as I enter your site, your banner tells me what I need to know. That it is a guide that has a bunch of stuff. :D It also makes me wonder what kind of stuff you have in your site.
Layout 15/20: Your layout colors are nice with the side bar, but there is SO much scrolling. Have you ever heard of a multi tab layout? Maybe you should consider one. The background is very dark for your site and doesn't really match all too well. I would also suggest changing the font to something more like arial instead of comsic sans ms because CSM seems so old, bit arial is a classic. :D
Neatness 7/10: Well...In IE, the scrollboxes have a very strange sidescroll, but it doesn't sidescroll at all. It's very odd. O.O There is just a lot of scrolling on your site. No one likes to scroll so much, even if there is navigation. A multi tab layout would be great. :D
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: There is so much to read, I really didn't want to read it all. It would give me a headache. From what I read, you have very good grammar and spelling skills. :D
Uniqueness 10/10: Your site is very original. You have lots of different things that people can look at. I've never seen another guide like this. =)
Updates: 10/10: You're a great updater!
Content 16/20: You have a lot of content. I have a bit to say about it. Let's break it down. xD
Your images are very small and often blurry. They need to be bigger, but still the same size is very nice. The games and dailies images are what need to be fixed the most.
You explain everything in great detail, but, with so much content, it's not necessary. You should try to make things shorter and more to the point.
You have a lot of games, and, for the more difficult games, you should have a link to a guide for them. And also for the dailies such as the Faerie Crossword Puzzle, Lunar Temple, Daily Puzzle etc.
Your content is very good, but just needs a little bit of work. Soon it'll be tip-top. :D
Other 10/10: Nothing else. You have a counter and no music. Everything else is all good. xD
Overall 88/100: You made an 88%! You have a great site, it just needs a little bit of work. Definitely try the suggestions up above. ^^
Reviewed on April 25, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, for some reason it reminds me of one of those fancy hotels with the nice smelling soaps. The introduction makes me think of that more. Lucky for you, I love fancy stuff.
Layout 20/20: It's so pretty! The colors are so cool and are match together very, very well. Again, fancy hotel colors.
Neatness 10/10: You have great navigation that is very pretty and you also have back to top buttons. Your reviews are very organized and so is everything else like the rules and the grading scale.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Perfect! I read through it all, and it's so fun to read. :)
Uniqueness 10/10: I can tell your layout is original, and the story idea is so cool, too! The name is also a new one, too.
Updates: 10/10: You have frequent and detailed updates in a handy scrollbox. Great job.
Content 20/20: Your reviews are detailed and honest. You give the people you review tips and honest advice to spruce up their site to make it shine. Great job!
Other 10/10: You have a great counter that matches very well and no music. Everything else is all good. :D
Overall100/100: You made a 100%! Great job! My only advice is to keep doing what you're doing. You also qualify for an award! Take the 95-100 award at the bottom of the page. ^^
On The Island
Reviewed on April 30, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I first enter your site, I get this very cool island-y feeling, which is what you were going for. The colors are really warm and inviting and definitely make me want to stay.
Layout 20/20: Your layout is great! The header is clean, easy to read, and very creative. The CSS is pure perfection, and there is a variety of colors that definitely match the header and island theme.
Neatness 10/10: You have navigation and that makes it very easy to navigate. Your back to top buttons are great, too.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: Perfect! No typos or grammatical errors. ^^
Uniqueness 10/10: I haven't seen another page with an island theme or one that displays it so well. Your name matches your site, which is always good.
Updates: 10/10: You update almost everyday! Great job!
Content 20/20: You have a lot of links in your directory. Lots of content is always good. I checked about three quarters of your links and they all worked. Great job on keeping your site great
Other 10/10: You have a great counter, which, in my opinion, again matches your site. No annoying music either. O.O
Overall 100/100: You made a 100%! Great job! Your site is organized and definitely bookmark worthy. Go ahead and take the 95-100 award below.
Disney Animations and More
Reviewed on May 8, 2009.
First Impression 8/10: When I first enter your site, I really love the baby blue colors of the layout. But then it hits me like bam, it is taking forever to load.
Layout 18/20: I really love the colors and the way the layout is in three columns, but it is still taking forever to load. It is probably the layout and the graphics. Have you ever considered a multi tab layout?
Neatness 5/10: You have very organized navigation, but you have link back borders everywhere. They are on your link back buttons, content, and the neomail pixel, too. If you don't know the code to get rid of them, let me know. ^^ I would also suggest resizing all your affiliate buttons to 88x31 so it is neater. It's also okay for them to be in next to each other. :D
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You speak English. :D
Uniqueness 10/10: Your site is very unique from any other graphic sites out there. I love how you focus more on the classic Disney characters.
Updates: 7/10: Why do you delete your old updates? If they are in a scroll box they don't need to be deleted. You should ALWAYS keep you're old updates!
Content 20/20: I love your animations. They're so great. I also love your other content, which you have plenty of. Since they take a while to load, I would suggest again a multi tab layout.
Other 8/10: You have a counter, which is great, but the music sort of through me off. It also takes the page longer to load. And, with as many graphics as you have, we want it to load in lesser time.
Overall 86/100: You made an 86%! You are doing very well, but you need to work on link borders and loading issues. You qualify for an award. You may take the 85-89 award below.
Cooke Monster Reviews
Reviewed on May 8, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When first enter your site, I really like the colors. Dark purple and black are some of my favorites. I love them. ^^
Layout 18/20: It's a simple scrollbox, but I really think it works for you. The only thing I'm not too crazy about is how the header is placed. Try moving it over closer to the scrollbox.
Neatness 7/10: Your reviews are in a scroll box, you have back to top buttons and navigation. But half of your navigation doesn't take me anywhere.
Spelling/Grammar 7/10: Under your Open and Close for reviews, affies, etc., it should be OPEN not OPENED. Opened is past tense when open is present tense. Closed is fine, though.
Uniqueness 7/10: I have honestly seen a ton of other layouts like yours. You also don't have anything about your review site that differs it from others. The header is a new one, though. ^^ Try adding something to make it different from other sites.
Updates: 6/10: NEVER delete your updates! You aren't supposed to do that. Most review sites will dock points if you continue to delete them. I'm also not too big on the bullet points. It sort of makes everything look jumbled up.
Content 3/20: You have a few reviews, but they aren't really reviews. Review are more than just a rating. You should go into detail while critiquing them. The comment at the end just won't cut it. If you won't take the time to give detailed reviews, maybe you shouldn't be reviewing sites.
Other 5/10: Your counter doesn't match your site that well, perhaps a purple dragon? You should also have text boxes under your awards because you need the code to copy and paste. The site names section is also very out of place. You should also have a bigger variety of buttons, the one you have is a bit hard to read.
Overall 74/100: You scored an 73%. You really need to work on your reviews and give them more detailed critiques. You also have a few organization things to work out. I really think you have potential. It just requires a little work. :3
Reviewed on May 9, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I first enter your site, I totally love the header. I haven't seen one that good that blends with the layout so well in a while.
Layout 20/20: Ah-mazing. The header matches very well with the layout. It is a perfect layout format for premade user lookups.
Neatness 10/10: Though you don't have navigation, it's not needed in this case. Everything is very easy to find with just a teeny bit of scrolling, which is no trouble.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You can spell. Yay!
Uniqueness 10/10: I haven't found another site that features a vampire/royal/pirate gelert. Your style of user lookups are also unique.
Updates: 5/10: Awwwww! You were doing so good so far. You have a very long update explaining your hiatus, and I can sort of see why you wanted to delete the other, if there were others. But you should still keep old updates in a handy scrollbox.
Content 20/20: Your user lookups are great! I would totally use one of them if I didn't have one I love. :3 I also like the fact you allow people to edit the coding and images.
Other 10/10: Everything else looks good. You have a counter that has several hits for a time since you started. :3

First Impression 10/10: When I first saw your site, I first noticed the background and header. It made me wonder what ABB stood for, so I read on.
Layout 20/20: I think it's adorable. :3 The background matched very well and the CSS is perfect for a graphic site.
Neatness 8/10: It would look more organized if you put affies and reviews in a scrollbox. Also, you should having pending reviews under a new header.

First Impression 10/10: When I first enter your site, I notice the banner first and it looks really cool. I really like the colors. After a quick scroll over the whole layout, I decide I like what I see and want to look at it more.
Layout 20/20: I really like your layout. The colors match very well, and the three column layout is a nice touch. Each sidebar has several things and look like they belong there.
Neatness 8/10: You reviews are in an organized scroll box, and everything on the sidebar is organized also. I would suggest moving up the "who I've reviewed" above the waiting list for easier access. And the credits should be at the bottom of the sidebar.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You pay attention in school. *strict school teacher look*
Uniqueness 10/10: I like your name, and I haven't seen many others, if any, sites with your color pallet. I love how you put the rules as "follow the yellow brick rules." Irony is lovely. :3

Colours of the Wind
Reviewed on May 23, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I first saw your site, it immediately struck me that your site was Disney themed. I could tell that by the first two seconds I was in there. Since there really isn't a lot of Disney only sites, I wanted to see what you had. Your layout gave me a good first impression.
Layout 20/20: Your layout is so adorable! I love the colors and I can definitely tell that you have Disney graphics. It is very organized with a special update box, link back button box, and sidebar with navigation. It looks like your worked hard. Good job on bringing all those different Disney characters together in one layout.
Neatness 5/10: We have a little bit of a problem here... Well, first off, under the navigation section, there is a lot of blank room under the disclaimer. You also have a problem with link borders. There is one around several buttons on your site, the neomail me image, and one of your awards.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You are literate! Yay. :D
Uniqueness 9/10: I haven't seen a layout like yours anywhere else, and there are only a few Disney graphics only sites out there. I took off one point because you might want a little bit more of a variety of link back buttons. They are all pretty much the same.
Updates: 10/10: You update very frequently. They are thorough and informative.
Content 18/20: I looked at a few of your lookups and I like your style. Although I would suggest getting rid of the User Lookup: tagias thing that shows up when I try the Bambi lookup. Maybe it's on the others, too. I'm not checking them all. :P
Other 10/10: You have a great counter and everything else looks really good. Nothing else was bothering me that I had to complain about it here. xD

Twisted Dreams Reviews
Reviewed on May 25, 2009.
First Impression 8/10: When I first enter your site, I notice the colors, and honestly they seem a little bit boring. I do like the header, though. It gives a nice first impression.
Layout 17/20: You have a lovely two column layout, which is perfect for review sites. The colors could use a little more spicing up, though. Do something really cool by adding some more colors to the text and maybe add a patterned background. Try Google, Tinypic, and Photobucket for some good images for backgrounds.
Neatness 7/10: You have a link border around the neomail button. Under your link back buttons, you should center them to make them more organized. Your counter should also be more to the bottom.
Spelling/Grammar 9/10: Under the apply section, you put "Affliates Application" but it should be "Affiliates Application." You misspelled affiliates. But I understand, it's a big word. xD
Uniqueness 7/10: I really think you could do better. Your site is a lot like others I've seen. Add something really cool like a personal touch. Twisted Dreams Reviews is a little bit cliche. I see a lot of review site names with Dreams in it. Like mine, but I shall revamp soon. :D
Updates: 10/10: You update frequently, and you let your viewers know what is going on.
Content 20/20: Your reviews are thorough, fair, and detailed. You tell people what is good, what is bad, and what could be a little bit better. I also like your casual style at reviewing. No one likes a stuffy Grandma reviewer.
Other 9/10: No annoying music, which is awesomeful. I think your counter could be more interesting and more matching. Try using an image that matches your site for the backdrop. Oh, and be sure to add my button!.

Reviewed on May 25, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: When I enter your site, your well done header really jumps out at me. Since the header is good quality, it makes me think the other graphics are going to be great, too. I love all the purple because it matches your name.
Layout 19/20: It's very cute, and I love the colors. The two column layout makes it so much easier to navigate then one long column. Where your have your counters, in the header you put stuff. I think it would be more professional to put Counter.
Neatness 8/10: Your navigation is so prettyful. I love it. I think you should put your affies and directory listing in a scroll box as they grow longer.
Spelling/Grammar 8/10: Okay. we have a couple of problems here... On the welcome message, you put "I do NOT animate my buttons because it is a waste of my time, and plus, I don't jave the program!" But you should have put "I do NOT animate my buttons because it is a waste of my time, and I don't have the program!" Much more professional. Also, refrain from using more than one exclamation mark in a row because when you use more, it looks a bit childlike and unprofessional.
Uniqueness 10/10: I love the name and the layout because they all go so great together. I really love your site theme and the name. It's very different from others I've seen.
Updates: 10/10: You update frequently and keep your customers in the loop. Great job.
Content 20/20: I love your buttons. You seem to have a little bit of your own style going on. I especially like the AIOG button. It's insanely adorable.
Other 7/10: Okay, now here is where I am very confused. In your rules you stress you do not animate buttons, but under your link back buttons they are animated. You also said you animated them yourself. It would be nice if you explained why that is like that somewhere in your site.

Reviewed on May 29, 2009.
First Impression 10/10: I love the first impression! I was surprised to see the first graphic that said it was loading, and it even completed loading. It's way better than those huge arrows that say enter people use. I was pleasantly surprised at your first glance at your site.
Layout 17/20: It's a lovely organized layout, but I really think the red is very hard to read up against the blue color. The sub header colors are also too light. Maybe make the red darker and the green darker or larger so it's easier to read? I really like the header because it's very well done and is also subtle enough so I wonder what it's for. It doesn't tell me immediately it's a graphic site.
Neatness 4/10: You have navigation that looks great, but you need some back to top buttons under every header after the graphics. You also have a major link border problem. It is around your affies and link back buttons. You really need to fix them. Also, Shattered Crystals is under a directory header, when it is a graphic site. So you should probably add it under affies.
Spelling/Grammar 8/10: Under your banners/blends form, you put "Hieght:" when it is correctly spelled "Height:" Under the glitters section, you put "No glitters D;, you should request one." when you should put "No glitters. D; You should request one." The smiley really gets in the way of proper punctuation.
Uniqueness 7/10: The name umbrella is nice and unique, and so was that awesome first graphic. You offer a range of graphics and even guild layouts, which most graphic sites don't offer. I really think you could add something really cool to your site that sets it apart from other graphic sites. Be unique.
Updates: 10/10: You updates quite a bit, and you keep your customers in the know.
Content 17/20: What content you have is very good, but I would really like to see more made by you. Try adding some glitters on your own instead of waiting for people to request some. I really like your backgrounds, so I'd love to see more of those, too.
Other 9/10: You have a "lovely" counter, but you don't say when your counter started. Did it start when you opened up your site? Try getting listed in more directories so your popularity will increase.
Overall 82/100: You made an 82%! That is very good for your first review ever. You just have some organization skills to work on and adding more graphics. And what ever else I said. xD Take the 80-84 award below.
The Pixel Field

First Impression 9/10: When I first enter your site, I see the sun and I was amazed at how adorable it was! The falling flower petals through me off for a second there because I'm really not sure what they have to do with a field of little pixels.
Layout 15/20: I have to say it is insanely adorable. You did a great job with the layout, but you really need a sidebar to put your affies, reviews, link back buttons, and updates. It's a pain to have to scroll all the way just to do it. You have navigation, but it doesn't help too much in this case.
Neatness 8/10: You have a link back border around your affie Prada Pixels. You also need back to top buttons because there really is a lot of scrolling to get to the top.
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: No mistakes here. ^^
Uniqueness 10/10: The layout and the name are very original. I haven't seen anything like them yet. Your pixels are very cute, and I especially love the T-shirt pixels. They are very unique.
Updates: 7/10: You said you made the new layout so the others were deleted. I totally understand that. You really do need to have your updates box more to the top or on a sidebar. It would be fine if you put it between the welcome message and the rules. It would be much better on the sidebar, though.
Content 20/20: I love your pixels! They are so adorable! I can tell you work hard on your pixels. They actually look like what they are supposed to look like. I can look at them and immediately know what they are, unlike some pixel sites I've seen. You should add more colors to the korbat pixels. Those are insanely cute.
Other 7/10: You should have a counter somewhere on your site, preferably at the bottom of the sidebar. My button should be in a review section, not under affies. I am your reviewer, not your affiliate. Same thing goes with directories you are listed in.
Overall 86/100: You made an 86%! You need to work on neatness and look into getting a sidebar. You qualify for an award. Take the 85-89 award below.
Reviewed on May 30, 2009.
First Impression 7/10: My first impression is a little bit weird. I first see the main banner, which I really like, but the colors of the background, text, and headers doesn't draw my attention. The sidebar is also lower than where the header begins, and that throws me off for a second.
Layout 13/20: There's really not much I can say about this layout. It needs to be moved more to the center by adjusting the px in between the style tags. I really don't see the need for so many heart on your site. Some of your headers are those really cool colors, but the others are just plain and boring. The colors of your scrollbar really don't match the layout that well. You need more color in your layout. Do something fun. Add a background or play around with some cool text colors.
Neatness 3/10: You need to have your reviews, listing, and affies in a scroll box. I really don't understand why one affie has to be in a marquee. The credits would look a lot better on the sidebar. You should resize your awards so they look neater. You also have link borders around your buttons.
Spelling/Grammar 7/10: On your sidebar, you put "Navagation" when it should be "Navigation". Under your welcome message, you put "Please enjoy me graphics!(Though you steal my graphics, you'll be the first on a WOS and in shiny letters. Why shiny letters? I don't know....XD)" When it should be "Please enjoy my graphics! (If you steal my graphics, you'll be the first on a WOS and in shiny letters. Why shiny letters? I don't know....XD)" That sounds better.
Uniqueness 5/10: There aren't tons of anime-only sites out there, so that's unique. But there really isn't anything special about your layout, name, or site, actually. You should add something really cool to your site to make it different from the others.
Updates: 7/10: You didn't update when you opened your site, so it makes me think you deleted your updates. You have several typos in your updates, so you may want to go through them.
Content 15/20 You have a nice variety of icons and banners, but it would be really cool if you offered a wider variety of graphics like buttons, lookups, pixels, or other things. I love your signs. I'll have to use one next time a site of mine goes under construction.
Other 9/10: You counter is a bunch of random colors. Maybe try getting a counter that is anime themed?
Overall 66/100: You scored a 66%! You need to work on organization a lot and a better layout. You have great graphics, so you have potential!

First Impression 10/10: As soon as I entered your site, I let out a deep breath because the CSS and header gave me the impression that the rest of your site would be organized. I was getting tired of unorganized sites!
Layout 20/20: I love your layout! I have seen the code and background used before, but I really think it works for your site. In a cool way, you background matches your header because there is some really cool orange streaks in the sunset. The CSS is perfect to a pinch. The colors are incredibly awesome together and everything looks good.
Neatness 7/10: You have link borders around a few of your affies. I'm incredibly confused right now. You say that a requirement to be an affie is to have an 88x31 button or close to it, but you have three affies whose buttons are enormous and not anywhere close to 88x31.
Spelling/Grammar 8/10: Everything looks good except for one error. You put It's kind of like, I'm on the lookout for links to keep adding; and, you are able to come here to browse when you're on the lookout for the link to a perfect site, if you know what I mean. When it should be I'm on the lookout for links to keep adding, and you are able to come here to browse when you're on the lookout for the link to a perfect site. It sounds much more professional, and I fixed your punctuation because the semicolon and an "and" after it was not needed.
Uniqueness 10/10: You name is very original. I think your site is a lot better than those others I've seen because it looks like you worked hard strive for organization. It totally shows you work hard on your site.
Updates: 10/10: Great job! You're awesome at updating!
Content 20/20: I checked several of your links, and they were all working. It's very nice of you to take the time to point out which sites you think would help the needs of the person looking for that kind of site. And thank you very much for making my NP guide on a favorite. :3
Other 10/10: Nothing else caught my eye that needed to be fixed. You have a great site. ^^
Overall 95/100: You made a 95%! You have a totally awesome site so keep up the great work! You qualify for an award! Take the 95-100 award below.

First Impression 10/10: When I first enter your site, I see a bunch of colors and they look really fun and energetic. It took me a second or two to get used to the colors, but I think they are very cute. The layout is incredibly adorable.
Layout 16/20: I love it! It looks like you made it yourself and it is adorable. That is a perfect combination for a layout. Although the rainbow colors on the beginning of each section like updates makes the text a bit hard to read. I really don't see how necessary exactly it is for it. Some of those colors don't even match it. It should be really easy to edit it back to red in paint.
I would also choose a different color for links. The underlined blue is old and boring.
Neatness 5/10: We have a little bit of a problem here. Your affies and listed in section should not be in marquess. Try a scrollbar or div box. Also, your reviews pending section should be in a whole new section. No more marquees! You also have a link back border around your only affiliate.
Spelling/Grammar 5/10: Not too many typos but a lot of your sentences are very unprofessional sounding. It's okay, I'm here to help. xD
In this sentence, you put, "Hello viewers! Welcome to Fruity.The pictures aren't transparent. I can't make them transparent.Neomail me for an request!Best viewed in Firefox 3.Sooo... ON TO THE GRAPHICS! :D"
You should put, "Hello viewers! Welcome to Fruity! Here we have amazing graphics all about fruit! They are adorable and so cute to look at. Scroll below to see the graphics. This site is best viewed in Firefox 3."
In your rules, you are very unprofessional sounding. You put, "1.Don't steal (Duh)! 2. Leave the credit on! 3. Bashing my page with spammy boards is a no-no! "
When you should put, "1. No stealing my graphics or claiming them as your own. 2. Leave the credit on!"
Believe it or not, but people can make boards bashing your page if they want. It sounds like you are trying to control there free speech. Which is kind of bad.
Uniqueness 10/10: Your page is very special compared to the other pages I've seen. It is very adorable and your graphics are unlike anything I have ever seen. They are definitely original and very cute!
Updates: 1/10: You...you deleted your updates! You are never supposed to do that! You can keep your updates if you keep them in a scroll box. I gave you one point because of your one updates. Never delete your updates!
Content 20/20: Ah-dorable! My favorite is probably the cats. I really love how you took the time to play with different colors of different shades to make it look more lifelike. You are really great at making those!
Other 8/10: I think you should get a new counter. Just get a custom counter with an image like a cherry or something you make. Much more professional.
Overall 75/100: You made a 75%! You have really great graphics and most of what you need to fix is very easy stuff. Keep trying and good luck!

First Impression 10/10: One word. Wow! I love your new layout! With just a first glance, I can tell your CSS is amazing. It gives me a good feeling that the rest of your site will be nice and organized like my first impression from your site it.
Layout 20/20: Again. Wow. Your CSS is very organized and the colors match to perfection. I like how the main columns and text are different colors of grey, then the background is simple yet elegant for your layout. The pretty pattern in your background shows through, but it still matches very well. You navigation is amazing and so pretty-ful. ^^
Neatness 10/10: Everything is very easy to find without any difficulty at all. You also listed your site in alphabetical order. That's great!
Spelling/Grammar 10/10: You know what language you speak.
Uniqueness 10/10: A directory is a very common idea, but I can tell you go out of your way to keep yours at a certain level of organization. Your layout is original and so is your name. Secret Observer has a nice ring to it.
Updates: 10/10: YES! Someone who doesn't delete their updates! You update very frequently, and they are in an organized scrollbox.
Content 20/20: For just three months of being open, you have a lot of sites listed! They are very organized and I like how you listed your site in alphabetical order. You also tell which sites your recommend, which I'm sure helps a ton of people.
Other 10/10: You have two very lovely counters that match the site very well. You've done insanely well on this review!
Overall 100/100: You made a 100%! Grrrr...am I getting too nice? O.o *looks at past reviews* Nope! You qualify for an award! Take the 95-100 award below!

First Impression 8/10: Well, when I actually first enter it, I see a huge banner of Taylor Swift. I see her a lot on some sites, and, quite honestly, it is getting a little tiring. It would be nice if people would start making less banners of famous people.
Layout 12/20: I really don't get why your banner is a lot smaller than all of your content columns. It looks like you didn't want to take the time to have it fitted. You giant banner with Taylor Swift on it ten times through me off for a little bit. I really don't get how she fits into your review site. If you were a Taylor Swift graphic site, sure, but not for a review site. I really don't see why you have pink and purple in the headers. The don't match the header or the background. Perhaps change the background with something with those colors?
Neatness 0/10: We have a very large problem here. You need all of your review in one large scrollbox instead of a bunch of small ones. You also need some navigation to the sites. Your grading scale, rules, and form should be in the middle column, not on the sidebar. You have a link border around one of your affies and under the credits section. Your reviews by should be more organized so you can read it much better. I can't tell which score you got from which site. I really couldn't give you any points for this because it looks like you didn't try to organize anything.
Spelling/Grammar 0/10: You have a lot of typos and grammatical errors that I just can't list them. You need to run your site through spell check. If you have to, write your reviews on Microsoft Word. I can condone a few typos and grammatical errors because I know I probably have a few, but six in one review is just too many. And on your updates you have a lot of typos, too. You also need to start putting a space between the comma and the word when you list things.
Uniqueness 3/10: There is honestly not much I can say about your site. You have a layout by Exclusive. Common. Your name has the words heart and review in it. Common. There's just not anything that screams you. Your site should be a reflection of your personality.
Updates: 9/10: You update very often, but you have a lot of typos in there you need to fix.
Content 10/20: Your reviews really confuse me. Some of them don't even use the whole grading scale. I can understand if they don't have icons or lookups, but it is still very confusing. You need to update your grading scale to fit other kinds of sites. You do have detailed reviews, but the grading scale is whacked up.
Other 8/10: Where's your counter? You should get one from boingdragon!
Overall 60/100: You scored a 60%. You need to work on organization and your layout and your grading style. You give good reviews, you just need to work on how you do things.

First Impression 10/10: When I opened the tab to go to your site, my first thought was, "Wow, what awesome colors for a layout." I did a quick scroll though and saw you had plenty of content, pictures, and amazing layout!
Layout 19/20: It's perfect! It's amazing! All of your colors match perfectly and I love the background. You link back buttons should be in their own section, instead of under affies. You should also add the new link back button section to the navigation if you add it. It took me a couple of seconds to actually find the buttons because I didn't see it in the navigation.
Neatness 10/10: You told me you want to enter your site in the spotlight, and I think you have a really good chance. Your affies would look more organized if they were all 88x31. It would make it look so much better.
Spelling/Grammar 8/10: You only have a couple of typos. Nothing too bad. Under your FAQ, in the second questions, you put "itwithin" when it should be "it within." One he ninth question in the FAQ, you forgot to capitalize December. Under the reviews section, you put, "This is a section dedicated to what other people think of This shroomy guide." when you should not capitalize This in the middle of the sentence. Also, under the reviews section, you misspelled appreciate in the last sentence.
Uniqueness 10/10: You layout is definitely original and so is the whole idea of your site. I can say that your site is 100% unique.
Updates: 10/10: There was a very big gap in your updates, but I read that was because you were on hiatus. Now you keep your site updated thoroughly.
Content 20/20: Perfect! You have lots of content all about shrooms, and I learned a bunch of stuff I never would have otherwise. You have no lack of content and all of it is organized in a wonderful table.
Other 10/10: No annoying music, a great matching counter, and nothing annoys me, so you're good!
