hiatus

I've been so busy! I have school, volleyball practice, and track practice! Therefore, I won't be online except possibly on weekends. I'm sorry, but I am going on hiatus for about a month. I realize that this is very inconvenient for the sites reviewing me. If you'd like to just not review me, that is fine. If you decide not to review me, I'd really appreciate it if you'd neomail me but it's not necessary. I'm also sorry if you're on the waiting list! But I will finish your review over the break. If you don't want me to review you, you can neomail me. So for now, go visit some of my lovely affies for a review!

welcome

You wander down to the lake, stepping delicately over sharp rocks and mud. You want to get away from the noise and arguments. You settle down by the lake. You lean forward, hoping to catch a glimpse of the bottom. As your finger touches the water, you suddenly find yourself falling. You find yourself somewhere else, a place called Contemplations.

Contemplations, previously Reflections, was created by me, Kat, on July 2, 2009. Here, I will try to give you a fresh perspective, a contemplation, on your site. I will try to make your site the best it can be. Just a warning, though, I will be harsh. How else will you improve? But please, make sure to read the rules. Also, I view in Internet Explorer.

rules

1.) Use the application (located below the rules) to apply for a review.

2.) I will review any Neopets petpage.

3.) You must link back with one of my buttons before applying for a review. If the button is not up by the time I go to review you, you will not be reviewed.

4.) Don't take it personally if you get a bad score.

5.) Fill in "Other Stuff" with a reason you started your site.

6.) You can be re-reviewed after 10 days if you scored below a 90.

7.) Please only take the award that you won.

grading scale

This is how I will be grading you.

At First Glance: ?/10

What do I see when I first enter your site? Is it chaos? Hopefully, I see a pretty colour scheme and a nice banner.

The Heart: ?/45

The content is the most important part of your site. The content is the reason that people visit your site. You should have the two Q's: Quality and Quantity. Both are important.

From the Outside: ?/10

Despite the old saying "Never judge a book by its cover," many people, myself included, do just that. Your layout should be attractive. It doesn't need to be fancy as long as it suits your needs.

Getting Lost/Neatness: ?/5

If I can't find everything easily, I may decide not to use your site! Navigation is probably a good idea. If your site isn't neat, then I'll click the "Back" button. Make sure you remove all the link borders!

The Little Things:

Counter: ?/1
Updates: ?/5
Spelling/Grammar: ?/4

Spreading the Word: ?/5

Do you have link back buttons? Are they attractive? You should have some affiliates, but not too many. You should also be listed at as many directories as possible.

Final Thoughts: ?/10

What was your site like, overall? Would I re-visit?

BONUS:
+1 if you made your own layout

At First Glance: 7/10

Wow, your banner is big. It sort of surprised me a little. It's okay, a little plain, though. Your welcome message is okay, but you need to introduce yourself. You don't even say your name! Also, you should add

td{background:black;}

between the style tags to change the colour of that ugly neopets bar. You could also change the colour to match your background.

The Heart: 43/45

You have a lot of quizzes listed! But I could find more by using the NeoAdventure search feature. Try neomailing people asking if they'd like their quizzes to be listed. Overall, you have the biggest quiz directory I've ever seen. (You're also the only quiz directory. xD)

From the Outside: 6/10

Hmm, your layout is boring. There's so much of the same shades of blue. The pink dividers don't really fit, either. Try adding more pink into your layout. That would make the pink dividers fit better. You should probably add a textured or striped background to make your page more interesting. Also, your right hand column is slightly stretched. I think it's because your updates box is too wide. Nothing is really messed up, but the layout doesn't really stand out.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 8/10

You should add navigation for the different categories. Go here to learn how to do page navigation if you don't know how. Everything's very neat and organized, I found everything easily. Your banner doesn't line up with your columns, though.

Buttontastic, The Graphic Factory, and The Tooth Faerie's Map are closed.

The Little Things:

Counter: 1/1

You have a counter!

Updates: 3.5/5

You were fairly consistent, but you missed a week at one point and you didn't even say why you were gone. You should probably tell everyone if you're going on vacation somewhere.

Spelling and Grammar: 2.5/4

In your welcome, the second sentence is too long and the grammar is questionable. Change it to This site lists all the quizzes my owner can find. We have many types of quizzes such as....

In your updates, sometimes you talk in complete sentences but sometimes you don't. Try to use complete sentences all the time.

You also shouldn't use numbers instead of typing out the word.

Neopetstter should be neopetstter.



Spreading the Word: 4/5

Your link back buttons are all cute! You're listed a lot too. But you have a lot of affiliates, some of which have over fifty affiliates. Try to be exclusive with affiliates; that way, high quality sites will want to affiliate with you.

Final Thoughts: 8/10

Your page is the first quiz directory I've ever seen, so good job on originality! The only problem was that your page was kind of plain. This page could help you make your page more fancy. So keep collecting quizzes!

At First Glance: 4/10

Oh. Your coding is considerably messed up. It's a little hard to describe, but basically the text is a little over the navigation, and the navigation is in a scroll box. I took a screenie of the problem area. Drag and drop!

So that's probably because I'm in IE, right? Your welcome message was very sweet, though.

The Heart: 29/45

You have a lot of content, which is good. Your userlookups are okay, but not all the colours really match in them. Try using a colour schemer. Also, a lot of the images in the userlookups are terrible quality. Try to only use high quality PNG images. PNGs tend to be clearer.

In style three of the lookups, the pets portion is messed up. Here's a screenie.

Your icons are nice, but fuzzy. Save everything you make as a PNG. I really like your banner, though.

Your guild layouts are nice too.

From the Outside: 3/10

Well, the colour scheme is great, but as I mentioned in the First Impression, I don't think your coding is compatible. Also, I don't want to sound like I'm accusing you, but your layout looks a lot like Peroxide. At least, the content part. Your headers are similar and your navigation is almost identical, just the colours are changed.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 8.5/10

Your navigation should be in a different order. Welcome, Rules, Updates, Blog, Lookups, Icons & Banners, Guild Layouts, Link Back, Staff Members, Affiliates, then Awards. I think you should remove the Burn Book, especially as there's no one in it. You need to remove some link borders in the affiliates section. Add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, you can neomail me. Lily is closed.

The Little Things:

Updates: 4.5/5

You've updated frequently, but you haven't been on for three days now! Where are you? I like your blog, though.

Spelling and Grammar: 4/4

I couldn't find any mistakes, but you might want to use numbers for the dates in your blog and updates.

Spreading the Word: 2/5

Your first and third link back buttons are nice, although they're a little blurry. Save them as PNGs. The text on the fourth one looks like Times New Roman, which looks unprofessional, and the second one is very blurry. You have a lot of affiliates, so try to be exclusive from now on. You need to get listed a lot more. You can look at where I'm listed to find some directories.

Final Thoughts: 7.5/10

Overall, your graphics are okay. Some of it isn't great, but keep working!

BONUS: +1 for making your own layout

You can apply for a re-review on September 5th.

At First Glance: 5.5/10

Everything seems very cramped. Your two columns are very small and both of them scroll sideways. Maybe you should just make the columns non-scrolling and longer. Your background is pretty but distracting. It also says that it belongs to someone on Twitter. You might want to have a background that doesn't have something like that on it. Your welcome message implies that you aren't good at making graphics...instead, if should imply that your site has high quality graphics.

The Heart: 30/45

Your buttons are okay, but your banners aren't. You shouldn't use pixel fonts on banners, because then they get all stretched out and well, pixelly.

I also noticed that you didn't put in the border=0 code when giving people coding. You should do that.

Some of your buttons aren't so great either. A lot of them are hard to read.

A good font to start out with for button-making might be Ernest.

Some of your buttons are JPGs. Remember to always save your graphics as PNGs.

Also, Ernest might be a better font to use for button making.

Your background aren't that great either, and you didn't make them...the last one wouldn't work as a tiled background because part of a circle is cut off.

From the Outside: 6/10

You should probably use a solid background. Your site looks cramped now, but a solid background would make it seem bigger. You need to add some padding into your columns so everything isn't squished against the sides. Go here and read the section on padding.

The yellow on some of your border previews doesn't match the black-and-pink colour scheme.

You have side-scrolling all over your site. You might want to switch to a more standard two column layout.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 4/10

You should probably make the previews of the banners the same size as the buttons.

It will look like this.

Side scrolling looks very messy. You should probably make the columns wider or make the content inside thinner so it doesn't scroll.

You also need to remove link borders from your affiliates buttons and in other places. Add border=0 after the image URL. If you need a more detailed explanation you can neomail me.

Your navigation should be divided into two sections; main navigation and sidebar navigation. The organization is messed up too.

For the main column navigation, it should be updates, rules, requests, pickups, premades, then awards.

For the side column, it should be waiting list, link back, affiliates, reviews, listed at, then credits. You might want to make the Pending boxes bigger or even remove them if they aren't needed.

The Little Things:

Counter: 1/1

You have a counter!

Updates: 5/5

You updated almost every day!

Spelling and Grammar: 0/4

The version you used is on the left, the correct one is on the right.

In the updates:

requets - requests
asap - A.S.A.P or ASAP
Sorry Requests - Sorry, requests
La.yout - layout

Also, try to speak in complete sentences in your updates, and you should also bold the dates so that they stand out more.

In the rules, you overcapitalize. For example,

Fan Mail Appreciated should be Fanmail appreciated.

You don't need periods before you and thats should be that's.

Your credits is a run-on sentence. Change it all to:

Page hosting from www.neopets.com.
Most images from Google.
I didn't make most of the graphics, I just coded them.

You should probably replace ABT's button with a text link.

Spreading the Word: 3/5

Your link back buttons are okay, but not great. Personally, I find it weird that a button request site doesn't make all of its buttons. You are listed enough, but you might want to cut down on affiliates.

Final Thoughts: 5/10

Your graphics aren't too good, but you seem really excited about making graphics, so work hard and you'll get better.

The Resource Page is a great guide to making a graphics page.

Total: 59.5/100

You can take the corresponding award. Oh, and you may want to consider changing your site's name. Almost everyone's site starts out as (Name)'s (Site Type) but changing it would make it stand out more. If you can't think of a name, my site has some name suggestions, and so do a few other sites.

Your banner is a great blend, but a couple things annoy me. The white background seems so bland. Maybe you could make the blend bigger so it goes around your site content? You should also change the background colour of the ugly neopets bar. Add

td{background:#000000;}

between the style tags. That will change it to black. You could also make it white or transparent or whatever colour you want.

Your welcome message was nice, but it could be longer. I saw the icon that you made for the contest right away, and it's amazing. I voted for it. ;D

The Heart: 45/45

Wow. Absolutely amazing. Your blends and icons are incredible. For your petpages, I would like it if you actually took a screenie of the petpage. That way I don't have to copy the coding and go test it. xD They were all nice, you just need to make their backgrounds fixed. Just add fixed after the image URL. Go here for a more detailed explanation.

Other than that, I don't have any suggestions....add more? Oh, also, Animation 1 for the buttons requests is a little blinding.

From the Outside: 9.5/10

The CSS is from Square One, but I'm glad that you edited it so much. You just need to make the white area more exciting, as I mentioned in the First Impression.



Getting Lost/Neatness: 10/10

You could move the affiliates request form by the affiliates. Your link back should be above the affiliates in the navigation. Everything else was fine.

Your affiliate, Sacred Hearts, is closed. You also might want to require an 88x31 button. You have a text link for Indie Love.

Your link back button is so cute! But you only have one. Try to make some more. You have a lot of affiliates, but I have to admit that they are all high quality sites. You're listed enough, but more couldn't hurt!

Final Thoughts: 10/10

Everything you make is so pretty! I wish I could make graphics like that. But at least I can blame my bad graphics on MS Paint. xD Oh, you should mention somewhere on your page what graphics program you use.

Your banner's nice, but it's fuzzy, most likely because it's a JPG. If you could get a PNG version, it would be much better. Add td{background:#000000;} between the style tags. You don't have welcome message. You should definitely get one.

The Heart: 39/45

You seem to be good reviewers, harsh but still fair. You've only reviewed two sites, so get going on your waiting list! I noticed that reviews seem to be going pretty slowly. You haven't reviewed anyone for five days.

From the Outside: 9/10

It is an Exclusive layout, but a less common one. The yellow colour of your links doesn't really match and it's a little hard to read. A silver might be nicer. You could use some padding in the review boxes. Besides that and what I mentioned in the first impression, everything's good.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 9/10

The review application was a little hard to find, so you might want to move it under the rules. As you finish more reviews, you might want to add navigation through the reviews.

Spelling and Grammar: 4/4

I couldn't find any mistakes, but I was a little confused with your use of the word comprehendible, in the Grading Scale section. I think you mean incomprehensible.

Spreading the Word: 3/5

I love your first link back button. I think you have too many affiliates, though. Your site has a lot of potential, so you should only affiliate with high-quality sites that don't have your button at the bottom of a tiny scroll box. You are definitely listed enough!

Final Thoughts: 8/10

Moonlight Reviews is an fairly new review site that's focusing a little too much on affiliates and getting reviewed. Focus more on completing reviews.

Well, your background is incredibly cute. But your banner isn't. How about a candy themed banner? Your banner is a little too big; it shouldn't fill up the whole screen. The banner doesn't seem to match the "cutesy" theme of your background and name. Your welcome message was cute and funny, so great job on that! You should also add td{background:black;} between the style tags to make the neopets bar less ugly. You still have music, but I like that you reminded people how to turn it off.

The Heart: 28/45

First of all, remember to save everything as PNGs. It makes images clearer.

Your newest Demi Lovato blend is really good! But the rest of the blends still aren't really blends. What graphics program do you have? If you're just using MS Paint, it's actually pretty impossible to make good blends. I've heard that GIMP is great, free, downloadable image editing program. You should probably look into some cool programs.

Now, most of the icons are nice, except for a few of them, like the "It's Okay to be Emo" one. But on one of them, the icon is paused, like it's supposed to be animated, but it's not. It's just stuck on Boy: So who do you like?

I don't really see the point of the quotes. Maybe you could make icons out of them.

What I really like is your lookups. You did a great job with the colour scheme and such. The only thing that bothers me is that I think that you have to have a link to Uber's Lookup Tutorial on the lookup.

From the Outside: 9/10

Except for the banner, I like your layout and colour scheme. The italics colour is hard to read, so you should make it a little darker.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 7.5/10

You still need to remove some link borders in your affiliates section and your reviews section. Add border=0 after the image code. Neomail me if you need a more detailed explanation. Your link back box has side scrolling. You can change the size of the text boxes for the code so that they'll fit right.

Okay, pretend that the ( and ) are HTML brackets.

Fiddle with the rows and columns until it fits into your box.

In your listed in box, sometimes the buttons are far apart, and sometimes they are right next to each other. You should make it all the same.

In the second rule, there should be their.
You forget to capitalize a lot, especially site names.

I think you should remove the second link back button. The third one's really cute, though! In fact, I like all of them except the second. You have a good number of affiliates and you're listed a lot!

At First Glance: 4/10

The first thing I see is a very fuzzy banner. The picture appears to be a scroll, which would fit a Lost Desert theme, but the text isn't on the scroll. There was music playing loudly. It's a pretty bad idea to have music playing, especially in a directory. If you must have music playing, how about a snake charmer type of music? If you go here you can download the Sutek's tomb theme song. I have no idea how to put it on a page, though. You'd be better off removing the music.

I see some glittery purple butterflies. While these are pretty, they don't match your site theme at all. Why are they there?

Your welcome message is very confusing. You say to go to Poblo1111's page. I did, and there's nothing there. Then you ramble on about how you neomail people asking to list them, and how you can say no. All of that doesn't belong in the welcome message. Go with a standard "Welcome to Lost Links! Here you will find a variety of helpful petpages....."

Also, why does it say "Welcome ~ 10 click freebee's" at the top?

Also, your category navigation is all over the top of your page.

The Heart: 32/45

I like that you add a description of the site that you list. But you really need to list a lot more sites. Try going to a large directory like Soroptimist Directory and neomailing sites asking if they'd like to be listed.

From the Outside: 3/10

You need a better banner. The text appears to be Times New Roman, which is a rather blah font. Papyrus might fit a desert theme. Also, brown text would match better. The banner is fuzzy. Did you enlarge the image a lot? Check my Tips section for sites that make good custom banners. Your banner is also too big for the layout.

You don't have a colour scheme. Orange, dull green, black, and blue don't go together. If you're going to do a Lost Desert layout, you should do a sand textured background. The rest of the layout should be yellow/gold with hints of blue.

The white text is dizzying to read. What's wrong with a pale background for the div and black text? It would be much better.



Getting Lost/Neatness: 1/10

It was hard for me to find things around your site. The "You Who Help" thing can be moved into the credits section.

I noticed that you say Links on Page-lost count. That just sounds very unprofessional. Go and count all your links. Also, it doesn't need to be a big header. Just put bold text above the sites you have listed: ??? sites listed.

Links waiting - a lot - what does that mean?

The whole Please Read thing was very confusing. You explain a lot of complicated rules, then at the end you say that you aren't neomailing permission anymore. First of all, if you want people to read something, you should put it at the top of the page. I think you could delete that long paragraph and add a Rules section at the top.

1. If you want your page taken down from this site, just neomail me.
2. If your page closes or changes its name, please neomail me.

That is pretty much your whole paragraph.

There's no one on the Wall of Helpness, so maybe you should delete it for now. Also, don't you mean the Wall of Helpfulness? Because helpfulness is a word, while helpness isn't.

You also have a lot of link borders. Add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, you can always neomail me.

Your link back buttons should go at the top of the column.

Also, you shouldn't have a fanmail section if you don't have any fanmail. You especially shouldn't have a hatemail section.

The Little Things:

Counter: 1/1

You have a counter!

Updates: 2.5/5

You have a "Last Updated" thing, but maybe you should have a scroll box with updates?

Spelling and Grammar: 0/4

Putting Sorry for the spelling isn't an excuse.

respon should be respond.

catarory should be catagory.

diiferent should be different.

Here's where you need to rephrase.

NO PAGE WILL BE TURN DOWN. Change it to No page will be turned down.

That is harder said then done. Don't you mean easier said than done?

These were the sentences I didn't understand.

If you don't want me to Neo-mail you NICELY tell me not to.

The diiferent of being a affie and being listed is the affies and listed with buttons here.

I also didn't understand most of the Please Read paragraph.



Spreading the Word: 1/5

Your buttons all say different things on them. You need to get buttons that say Lost Links on them. My Tips section has a link to a button tutorial and button request sites. Only one of your buttons is 88x31 and it's almost impossible to read.

Everything seems a little cluttered. You have the patterned background and the neopet pictures and the pencils. It's a little too busy. You should either have a solid background or remove the pencils. You need a better welcome message. Introduce yourself and explain why you like to make shields. I noticed a side scrollbar (your page is too wide) and also that the scrollbar didn't fit into your colour scheme.

The Heart: 45/45

Wow! Your shields are amazing! You might want to mention somewhere that they're transparent, because that's even better! I seriously can't suggest anything. Okay, these are my favourites:

Okay, I'm going to go make a duck or lion themed lookup now, just so I can use one! xD

From the Outside: 7.5/10

As I mentioned before, you should remove either the background or the pencils. You need too get a colour scheme. If you decide to keep the pencils, use the colours from the pencils on your layout. If you keep the background, use the colours from your background to make everything match! Okay, you need to add this between the style tags:

td{background:#000000;}

That will make the ugly neopets bar black.

Then you should also move the rest of your layout down a little so it's not touching the bar.



Getting Lost/Neatness: 9/10

The navigation makes finding things easy. You could move the pickups into a scrolling box under the request form, though. You should also remove the link borders. Add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, neomail me! It would also make things neater if you required affiliate to have an 88x31 button.

In the second rule, you should add the rules at the end.

In the third rule, im should be I'm.

In the fourth rule, Dont should be Don't.

You should also capitalize Boe.

Spreading the Word: 2.5/5

You have a lot of link back buttons, but it's usually not a good idea to abbreviate on link back buttons. My favourite is the third. You might want to get some more with your full site name on it.

Everything looks okay. It's not great, but it's okay. Your main image/background is a little fuzzy. You should probably find a better quality image. I also don't like that it says "Tazzopia" right in the middle of it. The layout is a little too wide and too tall for my page. I believe the point of that Square One layout is to have no scrolling. Move the content box slightly left and change your background so that it doesn't scroll. I frowned a little as I saw the Square One layout - that seems to be a new trend. The text is a little small, too. You should make it a little bigger. Your welcome is pretty good too, but you should explain why your site is called Taxi Reviews. It's an interesting name, so make up a great story for it!

The Heart: 35.5/45

You seem to cram quite a lot into the first impression. For example, in Skylight's review, would you really notice someone's link back buttons the first time you visit the site? I also think that it's a bit unfair to give someone a zero for Layout if they have a layout. A zero would only really apply if the person had no layout at all. Another thing that bothered me is that sometimes you are a bit vague. For example, in Quizmania's review, you say:

I think your site could have more of a quizzie-ish banner. Also, you might want to add a quizz-ish background?

What, precisely, would be a quiz style banner or background? You should explain.

I noticed that you have way too many spelling mistakes. I would not trust you to find spelling mistakes on my site.

You are fairly helpful in all other areas.

From the Outside: 8.5/10

Besides what I mentioned in the first impression, everything is good.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 6.5/10

Okay, you don't need the stalker counter on the welcome page. The form to apply to become an affiliate should go with your affiliates. You have link borders everywhere. Remove them by adding border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, feel free to neomail me. The waiting list is in a tiny box. You should use text links instead of buttons. You need review navigation. You have a lot of reviews and it's hard to find them. You should also have Back to Top links in your review section. It would be a good idea to put a link back button in the Rules and Forms section, to make it more convenient. The other link back buttons and affiliates should be moved to Credit/Extra, which could be re-titled Sitely.

In your welcome message: sucessful should be successful.

You have far too many mistakes. Here are your most common mistakes:

You used dont instead of don't twenty seven times.

You used its instead of it's thirty five times. o_O

Remember, its is possessive, as in, the puppy's ball could become its ball.

It's is a contraction for it is.

You used Im or im instead of I'm seven times.

Another common mistake is when you say but affies will always be open though. or something similar. It should be either but affies will always be open or though affies will always be open.

You should also never use numbers instead of the word. Type it out.

Take all your reviews and run them through an automatic Spell-Check tool. Then, check them over manually. You just have so many mistakes.

Spreading the Word: 2.5/5

The first three link back buttons are fine, but the fourth one is fuzzy and the fifth one could cause a seizure. xD You are listed enough, but a little more wouldn't hurt. Now, you have forty seven affiliates. That's a little extreme. I wouldn't want to become your affiliate, because my button would be at the bottom of your little scroll box.

Final Thoughts: 6.5/10

I wouldn't apply to get reviewed at your site. I depend on my reviewers to catch my typos and actually help my site. The spelling mistakes, combined with link borders, make your site seem unprofessional. Put some effort into going through your site and removing the mistakes. You've got a lot of work to do, but I think it will be worth it.

Everything looks very nice! Your welcome is good too, but you need to explain a bit about yourself. You could also add why you started your site. The only thing that really bothered me was that you need to change the colour of the ugly neopets bar at the top. Just add this between the style tags:

td{background:#000000;}

Change the colour to match your background.

The Heart: 44/45

Wow. Everything is good! Seriously, what image editing program do you have? The only thing I can really say is to add more. Also, on this, the pink swirls should be slightly lighter.

On this one, the swirls should be a pale pink as well.

You should also save your images as PNGs to make them extra clear.

From the Outside: 9/10

The layout is Mario themed and looks good. Don't forget to credit yourself for making it, which I assume you did. You should also add padding.

#main { position: absolute; width: 500; height: auto; top: 305; left: 10; border: 1px solid #000; background-color: #FFF; padding:5px;}

Add padding on your sidebar too.

Also, for your navigation links, you should remove the underlining.

a.nav:link, a.nav:active, a.nav:visited { display: block; margin: 5px; border: 1px solid #E01B37; background-color: #1F4ECA; color: #FFF; text-decoration:none;}

You need to make another link back button. How about a Mario themed one? Now, you don't have any affiliates. It's good that you don't have too many, but you do need a few.

You definitely need a banner. How about a banner made of pixels or your cute scribbles? And why do I have to scroll right to get to your layout? Make it aligned centre or left. Your welcome is very nice, and the cloud scribble is very cute.

The Heart: 40/45

Well, your pixels are very cute! These are my favourites:

However, you should probably take off the pixels from Amber's Pixels. You should make your own Leave Credit signs or simply type Leave Credit.

Also, your pixels aren't transparent. That means that anyone with a coloured background can't use your pixels. Example:

Transparency is a must for pixel makers. There are some programs out there that let you make image backgrounds transparent. You should look into that.

Also, how about making the cute cloud scribble adoptable?

From the Outside: 7/10

The layout is a basic Exclusive one, very nice. You need to make the layout left or centred. You also need a cute banner.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 10/10

Your affiliates should be below your link back buttons. You don't need page navigation yet, but you will eventually, so maybe you should put that in now. You should also take the rules out of the scroll box. Also, rules are usually left-aligned.

You should stop abbreviating your name on your link back buttons. This link back button is absolutely adorable:

You just need to put your full site name on your buttons. Also, on the last link back button, the text should be centred on the button.

Also, the coding for your link back buttons is messed up. You need to end the link tags.

You have a good amount of affiliates, but you should get listed more. You can look at my Tips section or my Listed At section to find more directories.

The background is cute, but the header seems black and white. How about a more vanilla coloured header? Your introduction is okay, but you should explain about your site name. Vanilla Kisses is an adorable name, so explain! (If you don't have a cool story, just make one up! xD)

The Heart: 41/45

Most of your buttons were pretty cute, but these two looked rushed.

Remember to always take your time on the buttons! These were my favourites:



From the Outside: 7/10

As I mentioned before, the banner needs to be vanilla coloured. How about a scoop of vanilla ice cream? The bright yellow and bright green of the navigation and main headers should be more pastel colours. You should use the pink and green from your background. You also have a big blank space between the main column and the credit because the sidebar is pushing it down. Fix this by looking for the coding for the main column. Look for height:auto. Change it to Height: ?px. Change the pixel number until it matches your sidebar.

Hmm, no banner. Maybe you should get one? Now, the colours were nice, but the background was blah. How about some orange or green stripes? Or even a solid background would be nice. The credits section on the left is messy, there are blank links. Move the credits down to the bottom of the column and delete the blank ones. Your welcome is more an "About the Site." Welcome people to the site too.

Seven points were deducted for lack of quantity. Still, you haven't been open long. For the Acara - Angry Prince font, the siggy font is impossible to read. Now, in the Ace font, some of the symbols were shown as blank squares. I have Internet Explorer. Could that be why? You should look into that.

The rules should be under the welcome, before the forms, and not in a scroll box. After all, you want people to read them. Move your affiliates and your listed at sections to the right column, then move the link back buttons to the left column. Take the counter out of the scroll box. Your credits should be at the bottom of the right hand column. Remove the blank link credits too. In your updates, you say that requests are open, but in your welcome, you say that they are closed. There are link borders around some of your link back buttons. Add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, feel free to neomail me.

I clicked on your button and arrived a page with a huge enter sign on it. It's completely unnecessary. Also, you have a link border around it. Add border=0 after the image code to remove it. Neomail me if you need a more detailed explanation. Also, there was music playing. It's usually a bad idea to have music on your site. You should at least put a warning in, and also remind people to push Esc if they want to stop the music. Okay, now onto your actual site. The banner is huge. It's not a blend, but just a bunch of blurry images stuck together. Also, if someone doesn't like the band All Time Low, I doubt they would scroll down. Reading the green text gives me a headache. But your welcome message is very good.

The Heart: 5/45

Your blends aren't blends. They are images that are stuck next to each other with text stuck on it. First of all, you should save everything as PNGs. That will make images much clearer. The colour splashes are taken from the Photobucket folder, so I can't really give you any credit for them. You have very few icons, and some of them aren't made by you. Your userlookup looks nice, but you didn't code it.



From the Outside: 5/10

Your layout is too wide for my screen. You should decrease the width of the right column and the distance between the two columns. The colour scheme doesn't work either. Black and pink might be better. Change the font colour to black or a much darker green.



Getting Lost/Neatness: 1/10

The rules should be after the welcome, then the requests, then the pick ups. The affiliates and directories that you are listed at should be in the side column above the music box. As there's no one on your Wall of Shame, you should remove it.

I noticed that you put my button in the Affiliates box. It doesn't belong there. You need to add a separate section for reviews. I noticed you've been reviewed by Everlasting Reviews, too, but Morgan's button is also in the affiliates section.

I'm a little confused, though. You say that you made the layout, but underneath that it says "CSS by Gem @ Bedroom Mirror." You also say that you made your userlookups, but you actually just made the graphics.

You should also make your updates box and affiliates box bigger. They are way too small.

You also need to remove the link borders scattered around your site. Just add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, you can always neomail me.

For the envelope from Amber's Pixels, remove the "Envelope from Amber's Pixels" thing and move it to the credits section.

At First Glance: 8.5/10

The layout is a little bright at first glance. The yellow of the neopets bar looks terrible against your layout, so you should change it. In between the style tags, add

td{background:#000000;}

That would change the yellow to black. You could also change it to match your background.

On your banner, I like that you used a brush, but as a graphic maker, I'd like it better if you used a more complicated brush. The Resource Page has lots of pretty, funky brushes that you can use until you make your own, which you should definitely try.

The first part of your welcome message is very nice, but the second and third are less so. Maybe for the second, you should say something along the lines of, "Don't worry if your request is taking a while, because I am busy and I want your button or banner to be perfect!" The part about how you don't do guild layouts belongs in the review section. You should probably take out at least one of the Pleases in the third paragraph.

Also, you should mention your name and Jeanette's name in the welcome message somewhere. As in, "Owned by Nattaleigh and Jeanette, Buttons 'n Banners mostly makes buttons, but we also make banners." That could easily be inserted into the second sentence in your welcome.

The Heart: 35/45

You have basic borders and a couple more. Your buttons are okay. I think your buttons have improved over time.

The font looks messy there. That font looks better if you outline it in a dark colour and use a lighter colour on the inside, so it's like block letters. Also, the placement of the text on those two buttons looks like you rushed a little. The placement of the text should generally be balanced.

In that button, the "Itsy Bitsy" part should be further left.

The text isn't quite centred, like you didn't put in enough effort to get it right. It just looks a bit messy. However, some of your more recent buttons are much better.

Those two are my favourites.

Now the big problem is that your buttons aren't transparent. If you made a button with the Oval style of border and someone tried to use it on a background besides white, it would look terrible.

Example:

Transparency is a must for button makers.

Also, I looked at the banner for basketball_roxx and the text is hard to read. You should probably outline or layer the text. You could make two copies of the text, a white and a black. Put the white underneath then the black on top but slightly to the side. The graphic quality is also blurry. If you use Photobucket to upload, you can upload PNGs, which are much clearer. You should also make your buttons PNGs.

From the Outside: 9.5/10

It's a little bright, but I love your headers! I also love your text areas. Just fix what I mentioned in the First Impression about the neopets bar, and make your background fixed (non-scrolling). Just add "fixed" after the image URL.

body{background: URL('http://i32.tinypic.com/2sbpsuo.jpg') fixed;}

Just substitute that for your version of that in between the style tags.

You should also make the background colour for the updates box a lighter shade of orange. The brightness is kind of hurting my eyes. xD

Getting Lost/Neatness: 7/10

You need to remove the forms from the scrolling box. There's only two forms, so it would be fine under the normal header with your next. The open/closed signs for your requests are a little hard to read. I think you should have previews of the banners. There's a very simple code.

You can make it exactly the same size as the buttons. Here's what it will look like.

Just instruct the requester to drag it to the address bar to see it full size.

You should make the pick-up scroll box bigger, or remove it completely. Your archives should probably go below the pickup. For the affiliates scroll box, you should make it a little thinner and centre the buttons.

You have navigation, but you could remove the neopets navigation. It's not really necessary. A link back to the neopets homepage would be fine.

You could also remove the F.A.Q. section, as most of the things there are covered in the rules. The part about copying the code could be moved to the pickup area. The last question could be moved to the rules.

Also, I'd like it if you linked the buttons to the site that requested them so I can see who they were for.

On some of your buttons, there's an apostrophe before the "n." Make sure it's the same for all of them. Some of the text is placed oddly, especially on the second, fourth, and fifth. You need to get listed a lot more. I'd suggest visiting a directory like Soroptimist Directory and requesting to be listed at all the directories she recommended first, and then several more. I noticed that some of your affiliates have your button in a marquee or over twenty affiliates in a tiny box. Remember that you want your button to be shown.

The banner is absolutely amazing. I love it. You have to tell me what font you used. My eyes strayed to the "Top" link above the banner, though. You should remove that. Also, I don't really like that your banner says (c) Jacob. That's a little unwelcoming. "By Jacob" or "Courtesy of Jacob" might be friendlier. Your welcome message was very good. I noticed the purple italic colour. It doesn't really match and it sticks out a bit too much. A shade of blue or gray would match better.

The Heart: 30/45

You just don't have many sites listed. Of course, your site has only been open a week, so I took off less points than I would have otherwise. You should also put the total number of sites listed, so I don't have to count them. xD Well, you seem to have just over 60 sites listed. In comparison, the top directories in Neopia have over three hundred sites listed, and one directory has over four hundred! Maybe you could go to one of those huge directories and neomail every site in it asking if they'd like to be listed. As you mention in your welcome message, everyone wants to be listed more!

From the Outside: 9/10

Your layout is very nice. I love the colour scheme. It's actually the same colour scheme as my other site, Waterfall Screenies! xD Okay, you should remove the ugly neopets bar at the top, or at least make it black so it blends better. Again, you should change the colour of the italics.

Getting Lost/Neatness: 5/10

Being a directory, you need to alphabetize your sites. You should do that now, until the number of sites builds up and makes it harder.

You should definitely find a different font for your link back buttons. But anyway, you might want to remove the separate "Listed at" and "Affiliates" headings for your buttons.

Your directory might not be epic yet, but it's growing fast! Apply for a re-review once you have over two hundred sites listed, and I think your score will go up significantly. As in, by at least fifteen points.

You can apply for a re-review on August 17th.

Note: This site was reviewed with the old grading scale.

First Impression: 3.5/10

My first impression was that your site was messy. Your banner is fuzzy and it has a border on part of the left side but nowhere else. The red font is very fuzzy as well and doesn't match at all. A lot of your affiliates have big, fuzzy buttons with link borders. My volume was up high, so when the music loaded it came blasting out of my speakers. I nearly fell out of my chair. Maybe you should have a warning that your page has music on it and remind everyone that hitting Esc turns it off. Or better yet, you could remove the music. It's hard to pick music that suits everyone. You need to add a welcome message. As in, "Hi, my name is __________. Here at Magikpirate's Lookups, I make high quality lookups....." You should write about a paragraph welcoming everyone. Talk about yourself and your site.

Content: 4/50

You don't have previews of your lookups. Therefore, it was necessary for me to have to test each one of them, which was annoying and time consuming. You should have screenies or previews for each lookup, or at least a screenie/preview for each style.

All your lookups have problems.

Lookups one through seven all have the same basic problems. Click and drag my screenie of the first lookup (you may have to zoom in) to see the problems and what I said.

Lookups eight, nine, and twelve have the same problems . The pets overlap the stats box. Also, the ninth lookup has background issues. The background from the image doesn't blend into the background at all. Click and drag the screenie to view the eight lookup.

Lookups ten and eleven don't show your neopets or trophies. Instead, it just shows a blank box. Lookup twelve shows the pets but not the trophies.

In your last one, you use a better font, but there are even better fonts for you to use. Also, it has the same stats box problems as lookups eight, nine, and twelve. It also doesn't show the trophies.

I was not impressed. All of your layouts have issues, the graphic quality is horrible, and at times the coding backfires. Not only that, but you didn't even code the layouts yourself. The coding is from Uber's Lookup Tutorials! (I know that Uber allows this.) Also, you didn't even make the graphics. You enlarged neopets images, put some text and your name on it, and saved it. I don't know if you even previewed the lookups! If you had previewed them, you would have noticed the obvious mistakes, especially in lookups eight, nine, twelve, and thirteen.

Layout: 7/10

You probably shouldn't have edited Impulse's layout. I think it messed up the coding. There is a large blue space around your main column. The "Welcome" header should go below your banner. Again, you should remove the music. You don't have a colour scheme. Your background is stars, so how about a dark blue theme? Remove the purple and red accents you have. Read what I said about your banner in the First Impression. You also need to make the background fixed. Add "fixed" after the background URL.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 4/5

Your page is fairly organized. You need to remove the ugly purple link borders. Add "border=0" after the image code to do that. If you need a more detailed explanation, you can neomail me. You need to require your affiliates to have an 88x31 button, as it makes things much more neat. You should also move your link back buttons above your affiliates and put your updates in a scrolling div box.

Spelling and Grammar: 3/5

You should write in full sentences in your updates. In the welcome message, rephrase "These lookups I created with the help of Uber's Lookup Tutorial" to "I created these lookups with the help of Uber's Lookup Tutorial." In the affiliates section "If you want your affiliate here just neomail me and I'll do that" should be "If you want to be an affiliate just neomail me." In the credits section, you spelled "pixel" wrong.

Updates: 2.5/5

You missed ten days at one point. Other than that, you were fairly consistent. You should also put your updates in a scrolling div box.

Advertising: 2/5

Your three link back buttons all say different things. The first one says, "Magikpirate's Userlookups," the second says, "Magikpirate Userlookups," and the third says, "Magik's Lookups." You should get rid of the first one, it looks ridiculously unprofessional. It's sloppy, large, and the text is barely legible. You need to get listed more and remove many of your affiliates.

Final Thoughts: 2/10

I'm sorry, but I would not use one of your lookups. Everything is low quality and sloppy. You might want to consider a more original name for your page as well. You seem like a nice person, but maybe you would be happier doing something else.

You aren't eligible for a re-review.

Note: This site was reviewed with the old grading scale.

First Impression: 8/10

My first impression was a little blah. There was just a lot of teal. A lot of teal. Your banner is a little odd, but somehow looks pretty. Your welcome is pretty good, but you should talk more about your site and also why you named your site Twisted Dreams Reviews. (I know you sort of explain why in the "About the Layout" section, I just think it would be better in the introduction.)

Content: 48.5/50

I really do love your style of reviewing. I especially love the story format. It's very entertaining to read, although it might be harder for you to get your point across. You seem to do pretty well, and you've done over 50 reviews, which is amazing! You are not easy reviewers, but sometimes you are a little mean.

Example: Even a four year-old could do better

This doesn't happen a lot, though. Overall, you are both good reviewers.

Layout: 8/10

I like your layout. Everything is simple and pretty. But you might want to have more of a colour scheme. Right now, your layout is rather boring. I can't really think of another colour that would really match teal, except possibly a pink from your banner, but maybe you should redo your colour scheme.

When you hover over the navigation links, the text is a little close to the edge of the column. You should add some padding. I also think the navigation would look better without underlining. You also need more padding on your right column; in the "Owners" section, the text is almost touching the border. Also, the red "Back to Top" images don't really match your colour scheme or your site scheme.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 4/5

Everything is pretty organized. The navigation makes it even easier to find things. You might want to put the reviews in order from newest to oldest, but by now it would take a long time to move all the reviews. Okay, I checked through all of your links. That's why your review took so long. Or at least, that's my excuse. xD I'm not sure if you document name changes, but I put those in anyway.

In your reviews:

The "Luxury" button links to "Push the Button.
The Button Maker is now called Sapphire Sparkles.
Times Square is now closed.
The Juxtaposer is now closed.
Hearts Reviews is now closed.
Buttons? is now Onyx.
Glamorous Lights is now Looking Glass Graphics.

In your "Reviewed At" section:

You have the wrong link to Tell Me Tonight. It should be www.neopets.com/~poogy_hyuga.
Charmer is closed, as is Heart Reviews.

Also, in your "Awards" section, the two right award previews are the same. The one that should be showing the 90-94 award is actually showing the 95-99 award.

In your review navigation, you should link Peroxide to the page that you put its review on.

Your extras section is very good, and you also have a counter!

Spelling and Grammar: 5/5

Well, I didn't read through all of your reviews, but I checked the rest of your page and everything seems good.

Updates: 3.5/5

Your longest gap is eight days, but that only happened once. Other than that, you were fairly consistent. Your updates are more of a blog, and some of them are very long for such a tiny updates box. You could keep the small box for updates then add a larger box in the main column for your blog, because scrolling down for so long to read one day's update was annoying.

Advertising: 3.5/5

Your first two link back buttons are odd. I don't think it's a good idea to abbreviate your site's name on a button, especially as you have such a great name. The second one looks rather messy. The third one is hard to read. My personal favourite is the last one. You are listed at a good number of sites and you are have a good amount of affiliates.

Final Thoughts: 9.5/10

Overall, your site is about the reviews. I loved the story format, and I think you are fair reviewers. I like that you gave descriptions of yourselves; it added more personality into the site.

BONUS: +2 for making your own layout

Total: 92/100

First Impression: 5/10

I do like that you've gotten a banner, unfortunately, it doesn't match your colour scheme at all. The purple on the banner is completely different from the purple on your layout. You could either ask Nattaleigh to redo your banner in the colours of your layout, or change the colours of your layout to match. I'd suggest changing your layout colours because I like the purple on the banner better. Also, the baby Kau on the banner doesn't match either, although you could tint it purple.

Content: 50/50

Perfect again! You've added more poems, too.

Layout: 6/10

The layout works, but again, you have to fix your colour scheme. Also, you should remove the stripes from your headers and change them to a plain purple. For the background, either a pale purple, textured purple, or a striped purple from Reskaya would be better. Also, the banner looks a little odd because it is way too small. You could consider putting it inside your main column.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 3/5

You still need a counter. Get one at boingdragon[dot]com for free. You still need to remove your link borders! Add border=0 after the image code. If you need help figuring that out, you can always neomail me. White Noise is closed, so you should remove its button.


Spelling and Grammar: 4/5

In the "Itsy Bitsy What???" section: You need a period after "Itsy Bitsy Nooblet Poems" and "credit." You also might want to have a line break between "I request that" and the rules. In your updates, you often forget to capitalize and/or use complete sentences.

Updates: 5/5

You've updated every day! *gasp*

Advertising: 3.5/5

You have two link back buttons now. The newest one looks much more professional and pretty, but the text is harder to read. If you'd like, you could try making buttons yourself. My Tips section has a link to a button making guide. You have to get listed a bit more, and now you have a few too many affiliates. I'd suggest making your affiliates exclusive. Don't affiliate with a site that hardly gets any hits. Your affiliates should be sites with about the same amount of site traffic as you. Which brings me back to the counter.

Final Thoughts: 9.5/10

I still love those poems! If anyone was using the poems, they probably wouldn't care about the layout, or your link back buttons. You still need to fix some things, but overall, the poems are amazing.

BONUS: +1 for updating every day

Total: 87/100

You got exactly the same score that you got last time. o_O You improved some things, but the banner sort of brought down your First Impression and your Layout score. Well, after you fix some things, apply for a re-review. Your content is definitely great, you just need to fine-tune the details. Keep your old award for now, and hopefully you'll score above a 90 next time.

First Impression: 7.5/10

Well my first impression was that there were a lot of words floating in midair. Then, the rest of the layout loaded. The loading time was a bit annoying, but once it loaded, everything looks pretty good. The black font of your site name, Flipped, is a little too dark. A brown, like the colour of the tree trunk in your background, might be better. The background looks a little blurry, as if the image isn't high quality. Also, to the right of the tree, there is a blank green space. That looked pretty odd. But your welcome message is very nice and welcoming!

Content:

Wow, you have quite a lot on one site! I divided it up into four different sections.

Directory: 11/15

Your directory is rather sparse. You need to get quite a few more listees before your directory could actually be useful. I'd suggest advertising on the boards and going to a large directory and neomailing sites there asking if they'd like to be listed. However, you are doing a good job so far. Also, your "Back to Top" arrows don't work.

Reviews: 13.5/15

I like your system of reviewing, but I feel like you're a little too easy on the people you review. I do like that you are always encouraging. I also don't like that you have your reviews closed. I'd suggest increasing your waiting list to ten sites, or even an unlimited wait. After all, reviewing more sites will give you more publicity.

SOTM: 12.5/15

Your SOTM is a basic SOTM. It's simple and organized. You should remove the voting form because voting isn't open yet. You need to try to get more publicity for your site too. Don't be afraid to ask sites if they'd like to compete.

Overall: 5/5

Overall, you have a lot of content packed into one site. It must take a lot of effort to do all that, but it seems like you enjoy it!

Layout: 7.5/10

Having separate pages on your layout works well for a site like yours. However, I don't like that the page jumps down to the header when you click the side links. You can fix that by adding

body{overflow:hidden}

between the style tags. That will cut off part of your background, but it won't cut off most of the Lenny, and it will still look fine.

Now, that green space to the right is very annoying. I'd suggest finding a wider image. Even if it makes the page scroll sideways, the body{overflow:hidden} will hide the sideways scrolling. Or, you could try this rather complicated solution that definitely works with MS Paint. I'm not sure about other image editing programs. Select the tree trunk. Copy it. Paste it. Then right click and click Flip/Rotate. Then select "Flip Horizontal." Set the flipped tree trunk down in a convincing spot. If you did it right, it should blend in well with the rest of your background.

As I mentioned in the First Impression, you should change the colour of "Flipped" to a brown. Also, in your navigation links, after I click one, it turns a rather ugly grey. I'd like it better if it stayed white. You also might want to shift your page content down. It's just a little too close to the top of the screen.

I also don't like that the content scrollbar is cut off. Decrease the size of your scrolling div until all of the scrollbar is visible. In the "Link Back Buttons" section, the header comes a little close to your banner. If you change it to "Link Back" it would be better.

In the "Reviews" section, it might look better if you removed the border from the box that you put all your reviews in. You should also decrease the width of the border for your reviews, and maybe change the colour to a dark green. You should also add padding to the reviews. Just add "padding:5px;" into the coding for the div.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 5/5

Everything is organized and neat, and you have a counter. I didn't see link borders, which made me want to hug you. xD


Spelling and Grammar: 4/5

In the welcome message:

You need a space between "me" and "Marie." You need a comma after "blog."

In your updates/blog you should put a comma between the month and day and the year.
Example: August 1, 2009

In your August 4 update, "your" should be "you're." In Burning's review:

Change "over flow" to "overflow."

None of the mistakes were major, the only thing that annoyed me was the lack of commas in the dates. Good job!

Updates: 5/5

Great job on the updating. Missing one day out of five is absolutely fine.

Advertising: 5/5

You have a lot of link back buttons! You might want to organize them into sections to make them more organized. A trick I've seen is to make the link back buttons link to the person who made them. You have a good amount of affiliates and you're listed at a good amount of directories.

Final Thoughts: 8/10

It was okay. You seem to have a lot more quantity than quality, though. Your site has a lot of potential, so try to fill up your directory and SOTM and keep working on your reviews.

BONUS: +2 for making your own layout

Note: This site was reviewed with the old grading scale.

First Impression: 6.5/10

Your banner is cute. However, it looks pretty fuzzy. Your background doesn't really match. Argyle just doesn't work. I do like the "Daily Scoop" part of your site's name, but the "Skoofii" part isn't as great. It's just odd, and I have to keep checking your page to see how to spell it. You have no introduction! You should add an introduction, introducing yourself and the purpose of your page.

Content: 48/50

You have basic dailies, but you should look for more guides and stats projects. You also might want to add a contests section and also links to the Altador Cup Prize Shop, the Money Tree, and the Stock Market. However, your page is fairly helpful, but you should add more of an explanation. The Food Club is not self-explanatory.

Layout: 4.5/10

Your layout works fine, but you should work on your colour scheme. The bright blue background doesn't really fit. A pink, orange, or pale blue textured or plain background would be better. If you could find a snow textured background that would look very cute. I was, however, upset to see your credits section. You changed the credit to "css help from Kill The Lights" but all you did was edit the colours. The css is still from Kill The Lights, even if you edited it. You could change it to "css edited from Kill The Lights." You also didn't credit for your background, which is also from Kill The Lights. I took off four points for your credits section. Sra works very hard on the backgrounds and css, so remember to leave proper credit.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 0/5

Well, you do have navigation, but it's not much help. You should alphabetize the dailies, and you should also use the freebie's full name. In your "Tips" section, you suggest pressing Ctrl + F to find things, but if I searched for "Underwater Fishing" it doesn't find anything because you've labeled it "Fishing."
Your "Welcome" section is several sections down on the sidebar, and it's actually the Featured Game. The counter is impossible to read, and it should go at the bottom of the side column.
You should have "Back to Top" links, so people don't have to scroll up.
The "Wheels" and "Quests" sections are left-aligned, while all the others are centered. You should make them all the same.
Your "Affiliates" and "Listed At" sections should be together under the "Reviewed by..." section.
You shouldn't have your affiliates in a marquee. Switch to a scrolling div instead. Also, you have link borders. To remove them, add "border=0" after the image code. Also, I'd suggest requiring an 88x31 button for affiliates, because large buttons look sloppy and disorganized.

Spelling and Grammar: 0/5

You need to find the shift key. It's your friend. You should also introduce yourself to the apostrophe. I'll give you a few examples of your mistakes, but you have a mistake almost every sentence! You should also use full sentences.

wasnt on today ):" That should be "I wasn't on today. :( "

MUST HAVE A PETPET. go any time" That should be "You must have a petpet. You can go anytime."

Proper nouns like Nickelodeon should be capitalized.

See what I mean? Go through and fix all of your sentences. Contractions usually have apostrophes. You also had a few spelling mistakes. The spelling you used is on the left, the correct spelling is on the right.

Potionary - Potionery
alot - a lot
intrest - interest
Nickolodeon - Nickelodeon
Monotomy - Monotony
Sishing - Wishing
explanitory - explanatory
Gormet - gourmet
hassee - hasee

Updates: 3/5

All your dailies are up to date, except the NeoAdventure Spotlight is closed. You updated two days in a row, but you delete your old updates. You should put your updates in a scrolling div so you can save the old ones. Also, one of your updates says that you weren't on that day. How did you update if you weren't on?

Advertising: 4/5

Your buttons are okay. You should save them as PNGs instead of JPGs. Then they will be less blurry. You have too many affies and you should get listed more. Also, as I mentioned, you should remove the marquee and require an 88x31 button.

Final Thoughts: 6/10

Er, not too great. Although you have most necessary links, everything is hard to find. It also took quite a long time to review your page because it was hard to check that you had everything that a dailies page should have. Fix up what I've mentioned, then apply for a re-review. You have potential, so keep working.

Your banner is absolutely adorable! I love the colours. It really suits your site. Your introduction makes shows that you are nice and friendly. The only thing that annoys me is the neopets banner at the top. You can remove it by adding .sf, td{display:none} in between the style tags. I noticed that you already have .sf{display:none} in the style tags, so just add the "td" part.

Content: 47/50

Most of your buttons are very good! However, some buttons aren't as great. For example:

The text is hard to read. You should have used a lighter colour. It's the same with a few other buttons.

For the first two, you should have used a darker colour for the text. For the last one, you might have recommended to the requester that the animation might not be too good.

In this button, the Ogrin is strangely blurry, as if the image was low quality. However, none of your other buttons were like that. But overall, your buttons are very cute! I think I'll request one. You have a good variety of fonts, borders, and animations. I'm glad that you've started making buttons transparent. These are my personal favourites:



Layout: 10/10

Your layout works for your site. I love your colour scheme! It makes me think of cotton candy! You might want to incorporate a little more blue into your layout. Also, you should make the background non-scrolling. Just add "fixed" after the image URL for your background.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 4/5

You have a counter. Everything is pretty easy to find. You have navigation, too. But you don't need a link to the welcome in your navigation because it's right next to it! I think you should link buttons to the site it belongs to. You might want to give coding for the buttons. While it isn't necessary to have coding for every single button, you could just put the codes in a box at the top of the pick up section and put "YOUR IMAGE CODE HERE" instead. Although most people know how to code a button, a lot of people don't know about the "border=0" code, and I hate seeing link borders. Everything is very neat. The only thing you could do is make the updates box a little bigger. The Little Black Book is closed, so you should remove their button.

Spelling and Grammar: 5/5

I only noticed one mistake, in the credits section. "Roseatte" should be either "Rosette" or "Roseate." Rosette means "an ornament, marking, or badge resembling a rose." Roseate means "rose coloured." The only other thing you might have spelled wrong is "Guardian," on this button:

However, this might not be your fault, the owner could have misspelled it or the site might be called The Gaurdian.

Updates: 4/5

You updated every three days, which is pretty good. You also went on a vacation, but you did notify everyone about that.

Advertising: 5/5

Your buttons are very cute, as I would expect from a button request site. I love that they are pieces of your banner. I am just so happy to see a site with less than ten affiliates. I agree that the new trend for over twenty affiliates in a tiny box is terrible. You only have three affiliates, but I know it must be hard to find affiliates that meet your criteria. You are listed at a good amount of directories, but it wouldn't hurt to be listed in a few more.

Final Thoughts: 10/10

I love your site and the buttons you make! Everything is cute and fluffy. I think I'll request a button!

You have a quite a few small mistakes on your page.

In the Meal Prep section.

Well, first you have to take the critics order.
This is the Rules of course. You might want to rephrase that into "Read their rules thoroughly.
You know the deadline and the rules, know it is time to start, right? Just remove the k and add the comma.
The second you start calling Fluffy an it, your chances at culinary success are out the -blocked-

In The Plate section:

What is a nice meal without a decadent plate to eat it off of? I looked up decadent in the dictionary. It means immoral or corrupt. Did you mean decent?

Anyway you are going to need a layout you could use something like this page." Change that to "Anyway, you are going to need a layout. You could use something like this page.

Because an application for a pet is about the pet, not you.

I understand application also are a way for the owner to get a feel for you, but-" Change that to "Yes, applications are also a way for the owner to get a feel for you, but-"

In The Burger section:

This is the fosters primo reason for picking you. You need an apostrophe.

In the Lettuce section:

Mmm, tasty lettuce.
You describe why fluffy is so special to you and is different than any other Fluffy's colored, species." Capitalize "Fluffy." Also, you should probably rephrase it into "You describe why Fluffy is so special to you and why Fluffy is different than the other pets that look just like him or her.

In the Critics section:

*cackles manically*

In The Bill section:

I bid you adieu and best of look on getting your dream pet. I hope may be you will refer a friend in hopes on helping them as well.

Look" should be "luck." "May be" should be "maybe." "On" should be "of.

Most of your mistakes are typos, but there were quite a few. I deducted 3 points.

As I entered your page, my eyes immediately went to your cute and delicious looking banner. It's absolutely adorable, and makes me very hungry. It goes very well with your name, which is, by the way, incredible! Your background is very cute too, although it doesn't quite match. The only thing that bothers me is the way that your blog is in a marquee. A scrolling div might be better. You also might want to add when your site started, but I love your introduction. You sound friendly and helpful and it makes me feel welcome.

Content: 49/50

Wow! Your layouts are amazing! They're cute and good quality. I can tell you worked hard on them. (Or, you are good at making things look like you spent a lot of time on them.) There aren't many sites like this. The only thing I can suggest is to make a few more premades. Also, why don't you put in codes for the backgrounds so people can use them on their page? You should mention that they must put in a credit. Also, a lot of the backgrounds in the Polka Dots section and the Plaid section are a little blurry. If you save them as PNGs, they will be less blurry. Overall, great! You have such a huge selection of backgrounds and you've finished so many customs. I looked through your Old Examples in the Customs section, and I noticed that as you make more layouts, you improve a lot! You did such a great job with them. If I had a guild, I'd probably request a layout here.

Your whole page has a nice colour scheme of blue, pink, and grey...but the banner doesn't really fit the colour scheme. I love your banner a lot, but it doesn't match! I think if you used Polka Dot #4 from your backgrounds section and added a few more colours from your banner into your layout, it would look better. I think you could move the right column a little closer to the main column, but just a little. A solid grey border around the columns instead of a dashed one might look better, but the dashed border looks fine. You also need to make your background non-scrolling. Just add "fixed" after the image URL.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 4/5

You should move the Request section underneath the rules. You could also move the reviews and the credits to the right column. You have a counter, which is good. You have navigation, so everything is easy to find.

Spelling and Grammar: 5/5

Well, I couldn't find a single mistake! Great job!

Updates: 4.5/5

I don't know how long your site has been open. Do you keep the old updates? You should. You should also put your updates in a scrolling div so it's easier to read. But you have updated two days in a row.

Advertising: 4/5

Your link back buttons are very cute, especially the middle two. The top one is impossible to read when it flashes, though. You have a good amount of affiliates neatly organized, but you're only listed in two directories! My Tips section has a few more popular directories to get listed in.

Final Thoughts: 10/10

I loved your site! Everything was cute and organized, both professional and pretty!

First Impression: 2.5/10

The first thing I though when I entered your page was boring. The colours all match, but there is no banner. I also see no title at all, so I can't even tell what your site is called or what it's about. To the right, there is a huge blank white space. I also see some link borders. I searched for your site name. Eventually I found it in small print. You really need a nice big banner. You also need an introduction. Introduce yourself and explain the purpose of your site.

Content: 38/50

Your content is okay. You have 43 guilds listed. However, there are thousands of guilds on Neopets and I don't really think that a selection of 43 is really enough. You should probably hang around on the Guilds boards and try to get more guilds.

Layout: 7/10

Your colour scheme fits well enough, but it's just so boring. How about a textured or patterned background? You definitely need a banner. And you need to get rid of that extra white space on the right column.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 0/5

Unfortunately, you are ridiculously unorganized. I also think that you could change your layout to a two column layout. The column on the left only has one thing in it. Okay, so let's go over your page organization. You have an updates section at the top, which is fine, except you put a Pea Chia right in the middle of it. Your updates section appears to have one update in it, but it's hard to tell as you don't have a date. Then you have the rest of the updates at the bottom of the page. Just put your updates altogether in a scrolling div. I would also suggest that you move your updates to the top of the right column, then put an introduction where your updates section is. Underneath the an introduction, you should put a section called Get Listed. Use header one (h1 in your coding) to write Get Listed. In that section, you should have your form and also a link to neomail you. Underneath that, you should put the guilds. But you should use header one to write Guilds. Use header two (h2 in your coding) as the different subsections like Neo Related, Warriors, and Harry Potter. You need to alphabetize the subsections and the guilds within. You also need to update your guild count; you have 43 guilds listed, not 41. Move the old updates from the bottom to the top of the right column. Under the updates should be your Link Back section, then your reviews, then your affiliates, then your Listed At section, then your other site, then a counter. You can get a counter at boingdragon[dot]com for free. The credit can stay at the bottom. Use header ones for all of those titles, and you don't need those line dividers. In the reviews section, you should put a one of Alloview Reviews' buttons there with the score underneath, centered. You write "Affies" twice in the section. You should require your affiliates to have an 88x31 button. You should also get an 88x31 button for your other site. You need to remove the link borders. To do that, just add border=0 after the image code. If you need a more detailed explanation, please neomail me. In your Guilds section, every once in a while there's a big gap between guild names. It's the same thing with the Affies section. Also, you can delete the exclusive thing on the side. That's not the credit, it's just a demonstration of header twos, italics, and bolds.

Spelling and Grammar: 4.5/5

Your spelling and grammar seems to be okay, but I noticed that you tend to over-capitalize and you need to rephrase in a few places..

Example: "All Anime Sites Please Neomail Me With Your Site Link And Name Due To Some Trouble Thanks!

That should be: "Unfortunately, due to some problems, all anime themed guilds were deleted. If your guild was listed in the Anime section, please fill out the form again and neomail it to me. Thanks!

Fill Out This Form And Send It To Cubscout20" should be "Fill out this form and send it to Cubscout20.

See what I mean by over-capitalizing? You do this in quite a few places.

Updates: 4.5/5

I mentioned that your updating system is confusing. But you updated almost every day, I think.

Advertising: 2.5/5

Your link back button looks sloppy and rushed. You didn't even bother to fill in the white space. I assume that you made it, as there's no credit. Honestly, if I saw that button, I wouldn't click on it. My Tips section has a button tutorial where you can learn how to make better buttons. It also has some button request sites where you can just request a button. You have a good amount of affiliates but you need to get listed more. Visit my Tips section for more directories.

Final Thoughts: 3/10

Your site was just so messy. I don't think I would use it to find a guild. Although it's the only guild directory that I've seen, what's stopping me from using the search feature in the Guild neighborhoods? You should also mention how many members each guild has, and maybe even a brief description. The name of your page (which is either Connor's Guide to Guilds, Guide to Guilds, or My Number 1 Site) seems to imply that it is a guide to making a guild, which it isn't.

First Impression: 7.5/10

When I first enter your page, I see some good things and some bad things. I'll start with the good things. I see a cute banner with pictures of Unis on it, which fits your site theme very well. I see your welcome message, which is short and sweet and really makes me feel welcome. However, the bright pink text of your updates is rather annoying. Your background is rather odd, and your colour scheme doesn't go with your banner. Also, the text on your banner is a little hard to read. If you like the faded effect of the text, you could do two layers of text; one solid green and one faded white. Your dedication is cute, but you might want to remove the part about being frozen. I also see not one, not two, but four buttons linking to the SOTM that you are currently entered in. Only one is necessary. More that that makes your site seem unprofessional. Also, there are link borders, but I'll talk more about that later.

Content: 40.5/50

You have quite a few Unis listed. Good job. But you should definitely try to get more. Also, maybe in the Pets section you should say how many Unis you have listed. I like how you talk about how you can create and paint a Uni. Maybe you should mention that Unis are the 5th most popular pet. You should also talk more about clothing and weapons that only Unis can wear. You could also talk about famous Unis.

Layout: 6/10

Your layout seems a bit cramped. You should move the columns further apart, decrease the width of the columns, and decrease your text size. It's quite plain, and the coloured text is a little irritating. Now, your colour scheme is not a colour scheme. It looks like you just chose random colours. Now, for your colour scheme you should use the colours from your banner. That means you should use more brown, green, and yellow. I have no idea what your background is, but I suggest that you change it to a pale yellow. A textured yellow background would be very nice.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 0.5/5

I'm glad that you have a counter, but the colour font that you used on your counter is red, which doesn't match at all. There are link borders everywhere. To remove them, add "border=0" after the image code. If you need help figuring that out, you can always neomail me. Marquees are also a bad idea. Change your marquees to scrolling div boxes. Also, the marquee is slightly too skinny for the buttons that you put in it, which makes it look sloppier. Okay, now your page organization is quite confusing. Here's my suggestion. For the left column, keep the updates and dedication where they are. But underneath that, add your link back section and then your reviews section. For your right column, the navigation should be at the top. Underneath that, you should have the affiliates and then the listed at section and then the counter. You should move the "Add Your Pet" section to the middle column. I also noticed that you put my button in the Affiliates section. Why is it there and not in the reviews section?

Spelling and Grammar: 0/5

I found quite a few mistakes.
In the Updates section:
perpage contest" should be petpage contest
our supports should be our supporters

For a directory that has only been up for 4 days, and were doing really well. That should be rephrased. Change it to For a directory that has only been up for 4 days, we are doing very well.

We Got Our First two Reviews! Its not the best we could have gotten but, it gives us a idea on what we should improve on. That should be changed to Our first two reviews were finished! We didn't score as well as we had hoped to, but now we have an idea of how we can improve.

We will still be remodeling, also we are looking for affies and listing sites. Change that to We are still working on the site. We are also looking for affies and directories.

Exclusive Uni was official thought of and is now under construction should be Exclusive Uni is now officially under construction.


In the dedication:

My name is __Little_Lady__2 but everybody just calls me Lady. My mommy has a plan to make me a royal uni but everything takes time. She decided to make this very special petpage on my page because, she reminded her of the other uni she used to have until TNT froze her account for something she didn't do.

Change that to My name is __Little_Lady__2, but everybody calls me Lady. My mommy wants to make me a royal Uni. She decided to make a special petpage on my page because I remind her of another Uni that she used to have.


In the Add Your Pet section: To join Exclusive Uni all you have to do is ask. You don't have to send me a neomail saying "Lade i just love your directory, please add my uni! Nope just ask and I will be happy to add.

Change it to All you have to do to join Exclusive Uni is ask. Just send me a neomail and I'll be happy to add your Uni to our family.


In the Welcome section:

Hi and welcome to Exclusive Uni! We are a place where all unis of all shapes, sizes, and colors can come together as a family. Change that to Hi! Welcome to Exclusive Uni! This is a place where Unis of all shapes, sizes, and colors can come together as a family.

Here's a random piece of trivia: I thought you spelled colour wrong, at first, but color is the American spelling, right?


In the How to Get a Uni section:
You can also adopt a pet. This cost neopoints, but wouldn't want to give a loving pet a home? Even though all pets in the pound don't have nice names, that doesn't mean your pet couldn't still look good when painted. Change that to You could also adopt a Uni. This costs neopoints, but who wouldn't want to give a lovely pet a home?


In the Paint a Uni section:
Unis come in many colors which you can see at the rainbow pool. Most paint brushes can be bought through the trading post, but the lower costing ones can be bought in a shop. Also another way to get paint brushes is through key quest. There has been many cases when people have gotten paint brushes from key quest. Change that to Unis come in many colors. You can see all of them at the Rainbow Pool. Some lower-priced paint brushes can be bought in shops, but you can only buy the rarer paintbrushes at the Trading Post or the Auction House. Many people have gotten Paint Brushes from Key Quest.


In the Lab Ray section:
Only should not be capitalized.

In the Morphing Potion section:
You cant get all the colors that you can get from a paint brushes. You can get a baby, brown, pink, purple, rainbow, red, starry, yellow, and green. Its the same ways as buying any other paint brush, but with a morphing potion you can change a pet to a uni and to that color!

Change that to Morphing potions are not available in all the paint brush colors. You can only morph your pet into a baby, brown, pink, purple, rainbow, red, starry, yellow, or green Uni. These potions will change ANY pet to a Uni of whichever color you chose.


In the Fountain Faerie section:

The last way and the most uncommon way is the fountain faerie. She is a random event, she asks for a item (usually will cost in the thousands of neopoints).If the color you want for your pet cost least then the item itself, i suggest you find a new color and/or dont do the quest You can paint your uni Any color besides royal and robot. You can't change the speicies or gender of the pet and you can only paint your pet Once.

Change that to The last and most uncommon way to change your Uni's color is through the Fountain Faerie. She will appear in a random event and ask for a rare item. Before doing the quest, decide what color you will paint your Uni. Then, check to see how much the paint brush costs. If the paint brush costs less than the quest item, you should probably buy the paint brush instead. At the Fountain, you can only paint your pet once. You can't change the species or gender.

I suggest that you run all your typing through a spell check in the future. Also, you forget to capitalize the word Uni a lot.

Updates: 4.5/5

You updated for three days in a row, then I assume you missed a day. The next date is July 14th, but I think that it's supposed to be July 24th.

Advertising: 1/5

Your second link back button is hard to read. The first one is okay. You are only listed at three directories! Visit my Tips section to find popular directories to be listed at. You have fourteen affiliates, which is too many. You've only been open six days. Fourteen is too much. Again, remove the marquees! Also, the top affiliate is "This image or video has been moved or deleted...."

Final Thoughts: 6.5/10

My overall summary of your page is "enthusiastic but unprofessional." You seem rather exited about running a site, but you don't seem to want to go over the details. Your site has potential, so try to focus! Also, one last suggestion. The name, Exclusive Uni, implies that only certain Unis are allowed in. However, your site lists every type of Uni! Exclusively Uni might be better.

First Impression: 4.5/10

Okay, as your page first loads, I see your site name over an apple that looks a lot like Apple's logo. The apple makes me wonder if you have music on your page, and it doesn't really fit with your site theme. Maybe you could replace it with a heart or a star. The banner is okay, overall. The "LOVE" graphics on the side of the page are a little too close to your page content, and you should also remove the one that is directly on the right of your banner, because it looks like it is supposed to be part of your banner. I also see your three icons that are placed as decorations. The icons have nothing to do with your page and, while they may be funny, I don't see how a giraffe with an overlarge head could possibly benefit your page in any way. The icons look terrible with your layout. You should remove them. I also don't like that you added your copyright signature to the top of your page in an incredibly visible spot. I would suggest moving it to the bottom of the page or into the credits section. I think that it's incredible unlikely that someone would steal your banner, as it is says "Miss Katia's CSS" in very large letters. I like that you put that your site started May 16, 2009 (and that's my birthday, too!) but maybe you should put it under your site's name. Also, the font that you used underneath that to write the sub header is hard to read. Your introduction is not much of an introduction, really. You just say that your layout might have problems. You should really welcome people more and tell them what you do at Miss Katia's CSS. Anyway, I don't even see any "glitches" on you page, so you should definitely remove that. Besides, you should never put yourself down on your own site. Also, you have music playing, which might annoy people.

Content: 30/50

Well, you don't really have a lot of page content. You just have the codes for people to take, and you've only done five layouts. Wouldn't it be nice if you link to those pages to show how the layout turned out? You should definitely offer a sample of what your layouts usually look like. Looking at your form, you generally seem to do the same thing each time with different colours. In your updates, you say that you will start doing premades. Well, where are they? You do have an application form and rules, which is good.

Layout: 8.5/10

Your layout is okay. It's good that you made it yourself. I think that you should move the columns further away from each other. They seem cramped. The background you have doesn't work, as it blends into the edges of the columns. The colour scheme you have right now clashes a little. Your colour scheme is black, pink, and orange. You could replace the orange with purple, or you could just go with a whole new colour scheme.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 1/5

I don't really like the text-box look you have going. Scrolling div boxes would look much better. Things are rather disorganized around your site. You have the "About Me" section at the top, which isn't about you at all. You should change it to "Welcome." You should have the updates under that, then the rules. Your page navigation should be above the neopets navigation. You could probably remove the neopets navigation. As I look around your site, I see a lot of link borders! Add "border=0" after the image code to remove them, because they look messy and unprofessional. If you still can't figure out how to remove the link borders, feel free to neomail me. Some of your affiliates don't have 88x31 buttons. I suggest you require an 88x31 button. Also, marquees are sloppy and annoying. Replace your marquee with a scrolling div box. You also mention in your updates that you have screenies. I don't see any screenies. It's good that you have a counter.

Spelling and Grammar: .5/5

I found quite a few mistakes. In the "About Me" section:
Hey, what's up! should be Hey, what's up?
Oh! And, if I made you a layout, I hope you like it! should be Oh, and if I made you a layout, I hope you like it!
In the application section:
I will not accept any other for of inquiry. should be I will not accept any other form of inquiry.
In the updates:
Horay! should be Hooray!
When you say it took me a lot of effort to... you should either say it took me a lot of time or it took a lot of effort.
Gimme should be give me.
You shouldn't use the words fantabulous or fantastical.
In the Affiliates section:
Please have all affiliate sites be neo-based! should be something like All affiliates must be neo-based.
In the Listed At section:
Yayy should be Yay.
In the Credits section:
All coding was made by me would be better as I coded the entire page.
You say, Please do nt steal any of my coding without permission. Now, why would you give someone permission to steal your coding? Change that sentence to Please don't take any of my coding without permission.
You also use a lot of smiley faces.

Updates: 2/5

You update about once a week. That's not too good. Also, why don't you put your updates in a scrolling div box so they don't take up as much room?

Advertising: 1/5

I like your link back buttons! Unfortunately, they weren't made by you. You have seventeen affiliates. That's way too many for a site that has only been open a little more than two months.

Everything is very organized and neat. Maybe you should mention that all the poems can be sung to the tune of The Itsy Bitsy Spider. You should also get a counter.

Well, I do love your background, but the blog you are using as your updates doesn't really match the colours of the background. You'd probably be better off using a plain scroll box with matching colours. You don't have a banner, and at the top it says "Pet Names" and you told me that your site was called Poogletastic Pet Names. You also don't have an introduction. You should add an introduction that tells about you and your site.

Content: 49/50

You have a great selection of names! They're all original and pretty. My favorites are Taivera and Zhorani. The only thing I can really suggest is to add more names, as there are other sites like this with over 1000 untaken names. But you've done a great job.

Layout: 9/10

The layout you have works for you. It's nice and simple. There is only one small problem: the background scrolls. Here's how to fix it. In between the style tags, it will says BODY then some text in between quotes. (I looked at your source code. ) In between the codes, it says "url" and then the background source code in parentheses. Okay, now outside the parentheses but before the semicolon, put the word fixed. Then your background will be fixed and beautiful!

You have two link back buttons, which is fine, but the text on the second one is a little hard to read. Also, one of the buttons says Poogletastic Pet Names while the other says Pinaele's Pet Names. So which one is it? Also, you should probably require affiliates to have an 88x31 button, because it makes it look neater. You're listed in two directories, but you should probably get listed in more. If you look in the Tips section of this site, you will see the four of the more popular directories.

Final Thoughts: 9/10

You have great names and great potential! The only thing that makes me frown a bit is that you force people to link back to you if they use your name. I don't think that's fair, because you can't really own a name, can you? You could request that people link back instead.

First Impression: 6.5/10

The first thing I see is your two drawings. They are both very good, but they blend into the background. Whatever font you used to write "Jerry's Screenies" is a little hard to read and the red colour of the font doesn't match the background. I see the bright red colour of your F.A.Q. as well. The red does not work with the brown polka dots in your background. I suggest putting your F.A.Q. in a div box. I also see a horizontal scroll bar, which is a little annoying.

Content: 50/50

Your screenies are pretty funny, and the drawings are absolutely incredible! But in your first screenie, the last post is slightly cut off. You can still read the text, but it would better if you had the whole post. Also, some of your screenies could be cropped a little bit, but we'll get to that in the neatness section. Great job on the content!

Layout: 1/10

Oh no! You don't have a layout! You get one point for having a background. Even a simple one column layout would be a lot better. Visit the Tips section of this site to find some good premades. Also, if all the layouts are too skinny for your screenies, you can push Ctrl+F and search for "width." It will say width: ?px. Change it to width:auto.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 4/5

Everything is pretty organized, but you might want to add a link down to the Link Back section. However, you can crop some of the white space off of some of your screenies. Also, your widest screenie is too wide for the page. You could make it skinnier by taking the Random Faerie Lupe and moving it below the neomail on your screenie. You should also get a counter.

Spelling and Grammar: 4.5/5

Your spelling is pretty good. I noticed that you spelled "outrageous" wrong a few times, but other than that, it's fine. You also forget to capitalize a lot.

As I first enter your site, I see your huge banner. Unfortunately, it's a little too big. I have to scroll down a little bit to see the whole thing. If you resized it, it would be much better. Also, the close up image of Alex Evans is a little too close up. It's rather scary. The green is a little dull, although I like the shade of blue that you used for your headers. I also love the font that you used on your banner. I like that there is no ugly Neopets header. There is also music on your site. It's difficult to have music on a site because everyone has different tastes in music.

Content: 41/50

Your banners are okay, but they are all just text on pictures. The ones that are blends are not very well blended. You have a lot of blank icons. I find it a bit weird that you said that you made all the icons, but in the rules you say that you made everything. I think it's great that you have music codes. Working music codes are getting hard to find. You also have userlookups, petpages, untaken names, and button bases, so you have a great variety. The icon gradients are good too, but the fonts section seems rather pointless. I like your tips section and also the way the text forms a pyramid.

Layout: 8.5/10

Your layout definitely works for your site, but you might want to consider spicing up the colours a little. I don't like the dull green that you are using as your main colour. I like the blue much better.

Organization, Neatness, and Extra: 5/5

You don't have navigation, but it's not necessary. I found everything easily. You might want to change "My Links" to "Link Back. Everything is very neat.

Spelling and Grammar: 4.5/5

This mistake was in your "The Owner" section.
I use to own downtown but I wanted to start over and make a new site.
You should change use to used and capitalize downtown.
You also need to capitalize all in all icons were made 100% by me so please don't steal. Also, some of your headers are lowercase and some aren't. You should make them all the same.

Updates: 3/5

You update fairly often and your updates are very detailed.

Advertising: 4/5

Your link back buttons are okay, but you have too many affiliates and you are only listed in two directories. You should try to get listed more.

Final Thoughts: 8.5/10

Well, your site was okay. It wasn't great, but it was okay. After reading "The Owner" section, you seem friendly and nice. I might revisit.

BONUS: +2 for making your own layout.

Total: 83/100

You can take the Any Score award.
