Archives

Missed a review before the next one bumped it off the page? Not to worry! Here I have an archive of all reviews from Sparkling Reviews after March 9th, 2011, and all reviews from The Sixth Station!

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, this is an archive for The Sixth Station, previously known as Sparkling Reviews. We are currently run by Snowflower and Muse.

The ABC order used in the navigation goes by the first letter of the first word in your site's name, with the exception of "a," "the," etc. For example: "The Sixth Station" would be found under the "S" section. "Sixth Station" or "A Sixth Station" would too.

Reviews A



Site Name - Active Imagination
Type of Site - Layout request
Owner - Darky
Re-Review!


Second Impression 10/12
  • It's been a while since I've been to your site! The layout has changed, though, and it looks great. The amount of text on your front page is still lacking a bit, though. Maybe you could add something about when the page started, why you decided to start the page, etc.
  • You get: Full 2 points for layout; full 2 points for banner; 2 points for the amount of text on the front page; and 3 points for changes.
Content 23/25
  • You've definitely completed a lot more requests since your last review. Good job!
  • I can't suggest that making more graphics would be a good idea, seeing as how it's a request site, and you have to have requests from users to make more. What I would suggest, however, is to lurk through the boards (help boards, newbie boards, even the avatar chat) to see if anybody's seeking a layout maker. Just give them a link to your site, and there you go!
  • 4 points for changes; 19 points for content.
Layout 11/12
  • The layout is easy to use in IE, and it's very different from the old layout. It's easier to navigate through, too, and the colors are easier on the eyes. I just think that it's a little /too/ plain for a site called Active Imagination. I don't mean anything major, like changing the entire layout around, but maybe adding a few pixels to it.
  • 2 points for matching site purpose; 2 points for design; 3 points for organization; 4 points for changes.
Spelling/Grammar 17/22
  • It's a layout request site ran by yours truly..." (the sentence continues). I would say "It's a layout request site run by yours truly, [your username].
  • Then, continuing with the sentence, "...and I think for being so new with layouts I do a decent job. But I guess that's for you to decide." I would end the sentence after "...yours truly, [your username.]" and continue with a new one saying "I think that, for being so new to making layouts, I do a decent job. I guess that's for you to decide, though!" I realize that this might sound confusing, but in the end, it would look like this:
    It's a layout request site run by yours truly, [your username]. I think that, for being so new with making layouts, I do a decent job. I guess that's for you to decide, though!
  • This was a bit confusing to me at first: "It's so frustrating to me -when you abandon it- and other people." I would say "It's so frustrating to me and other people when you abandon it.
  • 10 points for spelling; 5 points for grammar; 2 points for fixing mistakes.
Organization 18/18
  • The site is easy to navigate through, and everything is where it's supposed to be. I would just make the updates box a little bit bigger.
  • 5 points for updates; 5 points for easy navigation; 5 points for putting things in the proper sections; 3 points for changes.
Sitely 15/18
  • You have a lot of link back buttons! You also have a lot of affies; It's a bit harder to find affies than to find listers. You have a good amount of listers, but there could still be more; Most of your listers probably list other link directories, so you can always check there.
  • 5 points for affies; 3 points for listers; 5 points for link back buttons; 2 points for new affies/listers/buttons.

Site Name - Altador Cup Clicks
Type of Site - Altador Cup infomational / interactive
Owner - Sky


First Impression 7/8
  • The layout is simple, but neat. The coding template is from a site called That Kills Me.
  • The banner is also very simple, but in a good way. I can't be sure who made it though, so you should put something like "I made / So-and-so made the banner on the front page," and do the same with the other banners. This is helpful because, not only does it leave specific credit, but if it was made by another person and someone visiting your sees a banner and wants one, they can tell if you made it or someone else.
  • The intro is very informative and gives a bit of a back history about the site.
Content 17/20
  • You have so many in-depth interviews! You're still missing a few for some teams, such as Brightvale, Terror Mountain, etc. Advertising in the Neoboards will not only uncover players who would be happy to do an interview, but it'd get your site noticed!
Layout 7/9
  • Like I said, it's basic, but not in a bad way. Nice and simple.
Spelling/Grammar 15/20
  • There are a few spelling and grammar mistakes here and there, but those can easily be fixed by a quick revision.
Organization 12/15
  • Everything is alright, except for the updates. That coding thing you did to make it apear when you hover over it is really cool, and it keeps things less cluttered, but the problem is that if I try scrolling down to read the rest of the updates, it won't let me, and it'll dissappear if I try hovering over the box. I'm using IE, so I don't know if it's just in my browser that this happens.
Sitely 11/15
  • You have a TON of affies, which is great, but you don't have that many listers. We have tons of listers in our sitely section, if you need to find some.
  • The link back buttons look great, and you have a nice amount of them.

First Impression 8/10
  • The layout is very nice, and it looks organized!
  • Browsing through each section quickly, though, I noticed that you had the key in the "Extras" section. You should put this on the front page so that visitors see it as soon as they are directed to your site.
Content 11/20
  • You don't have that many sites listed yet. Advertising on the Help Boards is a great way to get your site noticed. If someone sees it, they might want their site listed! You could also Neomail the owners of sites and ask if they'd like to be listed, rather than waiting for them to Neomail you. Looking around other directories is a great way to find sites.

  • It goes well with the theme of the site, and it looks nice. :)
Spelling/Grammar 17/20
  • Almost everything is okay, except for this part: "We celebrate life here at Android! If it weren't for us, there would be NO anything! views!" "NO anything" should be changed to "nothing." Also, the word "views" doesn't need to be there.

Site Name - Annabelle Graphics
Type of Site - Graphics
Owner - Brittany


First Impression 5/8
  • When I first entered the site, the images on the layout made it seem like it was a pixel site. The layout wasn't very appealing to me, but the site had a good overall feeling. I do wonder if the owner was rushed to do the layout, because the banner could have had more done to it.
  • As for the Navigation, I don't think your sister site needs its own section. It would of fit fine in the sitely. (texture wise)
Content 14/20
  • The site offers backgrounds, banners and icons. The front of the site says it offers buttons and takes requests, but I don't see any request section or portfolio.
  • The graphics are low quality, but fun, and it looks like the owner has fun making them. Keep up the good work! You should put up a request section if you offer this as part of your site.
Layout 5/9
  • I actaully don't understand the layout here. Like I said, I thought I entered a pixel site. (Snowflower's Note: Most likely, she was thinking of Kawaii Fridge) The layout does match the background, though, and it all fits in together. The scroll bars are a little off, but that's an easy fix if you shorten the width of them.
Spelling/Grammar 10/20
  • Spelling: "I-n-v-i-t-i-n-g" is misspelt. You spelled "invinting".
  • As you dodge through the crowd, you smell a tangy scent." should be "As you walk through the crowd." And this: :You look up and down," should be "You look all around the room" And this: "Upon sulking back, you kick something with your feet. A single piece of sushi is sitting upon the ground. As you pick it up, you read the wrapper, it says, Annabelle Graphics." I'm not so sure sushi has a wrapper and part just sounds so weird. The whole introduction needs to be redone because it makes no sense, sorry. I won't point out anymore since I feel it should be changed, but this is the owner's choice. Also the updates should be bigger and the introduction a bit smaller, it doesn't need to be a story.
Organization 12/15
  • The site is put together nicely, just the scroll bars and updates are hard to see. It also seems like the updates were cleared or have just started...
Sitely 3/15
  • Amount of affies good, but most of them are closed. You lost a lot of marks for this. You only have 4 listers noted here, but I've seen your site listed at EHG and Soroptimist Directory. Maybe try going through our sitely section and see where you listed or need to be listed. The link back buttons look like the owner made them and are low quality.

Site Name - The Attic
Type of Site - Review
Owner - Cat


First Impression 7/10
  • I just love the layout; it's very nice, but not made by the owner. I like the extras section but it's not complete yet. I may only return to check on this section other then that you need to show more and get sites to request for a review.
Content 7.5/20
  • The site doesn't seem to update daily. It currently has 5 different review options which is great. But I can't see that the site owner has done any reviews; they don't keep past reviews or have not done any yet. If that is the case you should post some ads at active directories or site centres.
Layout 8/10
  • The whole layout is made by another site owner and there is nothing special done to the images. It looks like there were just placed together but it still looks nice.
Spelling/Grammar 14/20
  • The introduction needs a lot of work. Sometimes its best not to make the introduction work with the layout because it doesn't always work in your favour. Parts of your Criteria don't make sense: "When I come to your site, what do I see? Do I want to stay and explore? Or am I tempted to close the tab?" It should say something like this: "When I enter your site what type of vibe to I feel? Is the page appealing or not?" You should probably never say in a review that you feel like leaving because they site owner asked for help, and if you say in their review that you didn't want to stay on their page, they may feel temped to close the site. Also another thing that I want to point out: You can't take to many points off for smiles. If a person wants to express themselves, then let them. But if you feel they over-did it, then yes, you can state that in the review, but I think this part should be taken off or shortened: "And please, please don't overuse the smileys:)". Other than that just look over your Criteria and make sure it makes sense. And always have your spell check on to help with spelling if you ever feel you don't know a word.
Organization 15/15
  • The organization is fine and I can get around the site fine. I love how you set up the request section. It shows the form to request, the waiting list and the rules. Just perfect: a spot for all three. Snowflower's Note: Also, make sure that your Neomail button in your request section is linked to your user lookup. Right now, it's linked to someone else's. Change this, or otherwise people will be Neomailing that person, like I did. ^^;
Sitely 11/15
  • The Sitely section lacks in every section. You only have 3 link-backs and the third one barely counts since its a "ranked at" button. You should try requesting more high quality ones.The affies and listers are small as well. You can always put up an ad at any directory that post daily news and most of the time. They don't mind how many times you want to advertise your site or needs.
Total 62.5/90 or 69%
Improvements - Try to fix up your introduction and work on your sitely section. Getting listed is very easy and if you put yourself out there people will come for a review in no time. Good luck!

Another Note - Maybe try again for a re-review after two weeks.

First Impression 7/8
  • The site has a very nicely made layout, which matches the theme of the directory perfectly!
  • Maybe you could add a bit more text about the site, such as when it was founded, what inspired you, etc.
Content 15/20
  • It's great that you have a section for the pets that can't be customized as much (babies, mutants, Maraquans, unconverted).
  • You have a lot of pets listed! For some pets, you don't have that many listed. But, since it's a site that you have to apply to, it's not really something that you can control, compared to if you had a site where you asked if pets could be listed. As always, advertizing is a good way for people to notice your site. Who knows? Maybe the proud owner of a nicely customized Elephante will apply!
  • I like how you added some facts beneath the pets every once in a while!

Site Name - Blank Canvas Magazine
Type of Site - Magazine
Owner - Sarah


First Impression 6/8
  • Just by looking at the first page, I think that the site looks like it has a lot to offer!
  • On the other hand, the layout is a bit plain. I know that the site is called Blank Canvas Magazine, but sprucing it up a little wouldn't hurt. :)
Content 18/20
  • You have so many sections! It's great that you have a good variety too. I'm not sure who is working for you, but if you only have your staff writing for you, you should let people outside of your magazine contribute. User participation makes the site even greater! This is something that I say to most sites with a staff.
Layout 6/9
  • The layout is from a site called That Kills Me, which isn't a bad thing! But, as I said before, the layout is a bit plain. The owner of the site you got it from is okay with users changing the colors, so you could add some color to it and you'd be fine (as long as you still leave credit!).
Spelling/Grammar 12/20
  • This is one of the most important parts of running a magazine. Not checking your spelling/grammar makes the article more difficult to read, and thus less enjoyable.
  • Even though it makes the quotes appear, I wouldn't recommend putting periods in front of dialogue. Instead, put the dialogue in italics.
  • Again, just check your spelling and grammar before you save the page. If you're unsure about something, you could always search online_
Organization 12/15
  • Most of it looks good, but it might be a good idea to have separate sections for articles, stories, comics, interviews, etc.
Sitely 10/15
  • You have a decent amount of affies. However, you only have a few link back buttons and listers. Andriod and Elle's Help Guide list other link directories, so you could find some there. A few other well-known ones are Soroptimist, The Faerie Compass, and Smiley Central.

First Impression 4/8
  • I like the creativeness that you put into the layout, but it wasn't very eye catching to me. I don't understand the icons on the layout and what they stand for, but maybe they are your favourite ones.
  • You put a lot of thought and work into your site. I can see that by how many Site of the Month's you've entered. You are trying really hard to get your site noticed and that's great.

Content 13/20
  • You should change the title rules to "content" or "goodies" instead because I couldn't, for the life of me, find an pixels 'till I looked at the rules. I know that's the point, but you need to state that the rules are a part of that so people know to look there first.
  • You have a lot of content, but it's not the best quality. But like I said, you put a lot of thought into your work.

Layout 5/9
  • Layout is colourful and stands out, but isn't very high quality. Nice try though. Layouts are hard to make.

Spelling/Grammar 14/20
  • The part where you said this: "Perhaps you have visited my Screenies site?" You should state the name of your other site.
  • For your update you said this: "One is cleared every time I post something else." Updates should be posted every few days if possible and you should keep more than one update up a at time. It shows that you are active.
  • This rule should be changed: "I am kind of okay with editing. AS LONG AS YOU CREDIT ME STILL, I am completely okay with editing." You don't need to state twice that you are okay with editing. Just once is fine.
  • (linked to creator) should be "Linked for credit.
  • In the sitely section for your sister site you started the sentence saying: "Blogs Backgrounds Banners Scribbles Pixels Resources Icons" when you should say "This site offers: blogs, backgrounds, banners, scribbles, pixels, resources, icons".
  • All other spelling is fine. Just make sure to check before saving.
Organization 10/15
  • The organization of the site is okay. I was a bit confused on how the title of the navigation works and what they went to.
  • I didn't notice that the rules actually ended up going to the content (pixels). But after I found out were things were, it was a lot easier to remember. Making navigation easier for a visitor like myself would be great.
Sitely 12/15
  • For only being open for a little over 2 months, I feel like you should have more then 8 affies. Your amount of listers is good, and link back buttons are good too. All credit is put to the right spot.

First Impression 7/10
  • The layout was very eyechatching. Some of the scroll boxes were hard to see; maybe if you shorten the length of the scroll it would be better to use. A lot of the images still had the border still on them. It's better to use border="0 part before the last link tag to make the box go away over the images.
Content 19/20
  • The site is new and already ranked at many places. It shows alot of fonts and has requests. I love the extras section; it's a great idea and hold a lot of extra info about the site and the owner. -.5 points for being a new site since it's a part of our rules.
Layout 8/10
  • The layout is a custom, but not by the owner. I've seen impressive work by the owner on past sites, so I was very surprised to see the layout was made by another site, but it's a nice layout.
Spelling/Grammar 13/20
  • First thing I noticed was the amount of times you used your site name in the introduction. I feel it's not needed:
    Welcome to Hydraulic! Hydraulic is a premade fonts site established by me, Zach on March 6, 2011. Here at Hydraulic we offer premade fonts, requests, font templates and many extras such as rankings and featured font sites!" It should say something like this:
    Welcome to Hydraulic! This is a premade font site run by Zach. We opened on March 6, 2011. We offer premade fonts, requests, font templates, and many extras." I also think the link back is in the wrong spot. Maybe try adding it to the layout/background if you know how, or back in the sitely.
  • This is not needed: "I trust my visitors in following the rules, but just in case, I'd like to have the rules here.
  • In the about you section, if you don't want to say the info about yourself, then just don't list it. "Age: 0_o" (remove) "Grade: ??!?!?!!?!?" (remove).
  • All other spelling and such is fine. Just make sure to check your caps and spelling before saving.

  • The site has a great vibe to it. I felt welcomed as soon as I entered. I like the set up of the site and the background is nice, but a bit plain.

I just want to point out this: "A Place to get custom layout for your guild" should be "A site where you can request a layout for your guild." Also, in your updates, when getting reviews from a site it should say "I got reviewed at "Alpha Reviews" (include link) today and scored __/100" instead of "Alpha Reviews reviewed me."

  • The site definitely offers a lot of site themes for users to use; currently 17 themes. A lot of them are very nice, and the site offers tutorials for easy using and browser help as well. I would love to see more Neopet related themes for games or pets. Maybe have a weekly poll and write what type of themes people can vote on and not just the type of theme.

Site Name Neostars Magazine
Type of Site - Newspaper
Review Requested By - ladyfaerie


First Impression 5/8
  • The layout and the banner are a bit plain, but not too bad.
  • The beginning page isn't that informative. You should add something telling about the page, maybe when it was started, what your magazine is made up of, etc.
Content 13/20
  • You have a ton of useful articles! It might be a good idea to let users outside of Neostars Magazine to submit their own articles without working monthly for Neostars, as well as your workers submitting their own. Not only does it give a variation of the writer, but it makes the magazine more interactive!
  • You could use a few more comics, too. This is another reason that opening user submissions would be a nice idea; not everybody is the artsy-type, but there might be someone out there who would love to submit a few comics.
Layout 8/9
  • The layout is very simple and easy to use, as well as being organized. The colors are a bit bright, though, so adjusting them a little bit would be a good thing to do.
Spelling/Grammar 19/20
  • Most of the site is fine here, with just a few grammatical errors here and there. Be sure to check what you've written before putting it on the site.
  • These sentences don't really make sense to me: "It is a monthly magazine with tons of news, including interviews, help, comics, pet and site spotlights and more. Run by the editor in chief, Redmadam, we strive to make your neoday happy and better with helpful articles, monthly news, interviews, help, comics, pet and site spotlights and so much more!" You've already stated what the site consists of, so you could get rid of that part of one of the sentences. In the end, it might sound like this: "It is a monthly magazine run by the editor in chief, Redmadam. We strive to make your neoday happy and better with helpful articles, monthly news, interviews, help, comics, pet and site spotlights and so much more!

  • It looks like you don't have that many affies, listers, or link back buttons! It also looks like you didn't credit the button makers in the credit section. You should ALWAYS do this, even if you made the button yourself. This way, nobody can steal your work, and you won't be accused of stealing someone else's.

It should say something like this: "I am the manager of this directory, which was established on (actual date with year)." Also, after the Neo-mail sign there are rules, but you don't have a header stating that they are rules.
    I feel this should be changed: "...please neomail me a link to whatever page you want potential members to see." You should change the "whatever" to "whichever". All other spelling is fine.

First Impression 9.5/10
  • The site has a sleek, modern look to it that is pleasing to the eyes. The beginning text is also informative and welcoming! You may want to add the meaning of "bourgeoisie" to the opening text (or somewhere else on the site, even) because it isn't that common of a word and would also give some background into your site.
  • 4 points for layout quality; 5.5 points for text on front page.
Layout 10/10
  • This site's layout is pretty unique: it has a mostly contemporary aura, mixed in with a little bit of a Victorian feel. Still, it's a pretty modest layout, with the only color coming from the image of the Eiffel Tower on the left. All of this ties it to the name of the site, Bourgeoisie, which can sometimes mean "the capitalist class." With the sleek modern and fancy Victorian ambience, it really does reflect the capitalist class. The Eiffel Tower isn't out of place either, seeing as how "bourgeoisie" is a word of French origin.
  • The layout also versatile, and works in Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and even IE. It's organized very well and is easy to navigate as well!
  • 5 points for organization; 2 points for being aesthetically pleasing; 3 points for matching your site's theme.

  • On the page labelled "buttons:" Welcome to the request page, a your choice button is a regular button request, but a my choice is for when you just can't decide on what you want, so I'll take care of it for you.
    • The phrase welcome to the request page is a sentence itself, so you should end it with a period or an exclamation mark, rather than using a comma and continuing the sentence. Continuing with the same phrase: since the request types are specific styles, they're considered proper nouns and should be capitalized. To make the sentence flow better, you could also put them in italics. For example: "A Your Choice button is a regular button request, but a My Choice is for when you just can't decide on what you want, so I'll take care of it for you."-

  • The layout is very pretty! But, to all users with a slow Internet connection, beware! It may take a while to load.

    For the most part, the site is very organized. The only problems occur in sections like the "Glitters" and "Glittered Names" sections. Every once in a while, the images get a little pushed off the page, which makes it look a little messy. To fix this, you could:
    a) Use a page break to space the glitters out enough so they don't do that.
    b) Resize the glitters. To do this, just add width="### and height="### to the image code. For example:

Nobody likes a layout that's dull, and you made an excellent one here. The intro text is very nice, and very straightforward as how to request a font.

Type of Review: The Sixth Station


First Impression 10/10
  • The opening text is a good, informative summary of the site. The beginning was also entertaining as well! The layout also looks very neat and organized, and it also looks pretty. Skimming over the other pages on the site, they also look neat and clean-cut. Full 10 points for layout quality and front-page text.
Layout 9/10
  • As I previously mentioned, the layout is beautifully made. Sometimes, lots of dark colors are better than lighter colors, and somehow, it fits the name "Karma." Not necessarily karma in the bad sense, though. :)
  • The layout is very easy to use, but the organization is a bit funky in some places. For example, on the "BOTM" and "IOTM" pages, or any other page where you put images that are needed to qualify for the competition, they're kind of floating funny. This is where coding comes in handy! Perhaps a good way to organize it would be to have the image floating to the left or right of your text and write: "Use this image to the left/right. Use this text: XXXXX. Please make all xxxx ## pix by ## pix." If you're having a hard time understanding what I mean by that, go to TSS's homepage and look at the passport next to the intro text. To get it to float to the left/right of your text, all you have to do is add some text to the image code. This is how your code looks right now, I'm assuming:

    Well, all you have to do is add a space, then type style="float: LEFT OR RIGHT; padding: ####px;"-. You MUST have the semicolons and the quotations in there for it to work. In the end, it'll look like this:

It does stay nicely in the margin, though, and the transparent box stays at the top of the page. I wouldn't worry about this, though, because: 1) Not many users use IE and 2) It's not that messy and actually looks like part of the layout.

Type of Site: Adoption Agency
Type of Review: The Sixth Station


First Impression 8/10
  • The layout looks great! Sometimes, it's better to have a simple, css-based layout rather than one with a ton of graphics. Especially so if you're running an adoption agency, where there'll be a ton of images of the pets. However, the colors are a bit plain. Right now, it makes it look like a site with potential, but the lack of colors might drive people away. Adding some color to it might make it seem like a friendly, warm adoption agency. c: If you want to stay with the light, easy color schemes, just try lighter versions of the colors rather than plain grey. The intro text is also very informative. Not too much info, not too little.
  • 6 points for front page text; 2 points for layout.
Layout 8.5/10
  • As I stated before, the site could have some more color to it. It'll help attract visitors to stay and have a look. c: I'm assuming that you probably want lighter colors, however, so you don't distract visitors/strain their eyes. You can find a bunch of good hex codes to choose from here. Otherwise, the site looks great, and is very neat!
  • The site is also very organized, and it's easy to navigate through. The only weird thing in the organization is that, every once in a while in the UFA/UFT sections, the stats are out of line with each other. This isn't a huge thing, and it may even be just something to do with the fact that I'm using Firefox. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
  • 1 point for being aesthetically pleasing; 3 points for matching the site's theme/purpose; 4.5 points for organization.

    The major reason why it's misleading: Some users may think that the items the pet is wearing will be given to them along with the pet. This may not be the case! You might want to take this part out all together. If not, you could write at the end of it, "Although, you may not necessarily get these wearable items if/when you receive the pet.
    Minor reason why it's misleading: The items that the pet is wearing aren't necessarily from the NC mall. A better term might be: "...the wearable items they might be wearing as well!

First Impression 9/10
  • The text on your homepage is very informative and helpful to navigating the site; the only thing that would be a bit more helpful to add to it would be the legend (which I later found in the sitely section). It'll be more helpful to put it on the first page, where it'll be easily seen. 5.5 points received
  • The layout looks great, and the banner does seem to match the name of your site! The only tiny problem with it is that it might load slowly on slow Internet connections. 3.5 points received.
Layout 8/10
  • The layout is very pleasing to the eye and the banner certainly matches your site's theme. It appears as if the Tonu is using a lipstick tube, which certainly ties to the name of the site, Vanity Set! Your layout is also practical because it doesn't use colors that strain the eyes, or make it hard to read text. 3 points for a practical design, 2 points for matching the site's theme.
  • Your site is pretty neatly organized, especially when it comes to the "Foundation" section. However, I'm slightly confused as to what the subcategories in each sections represent. For example, in the "Concealer" section, there are three subcategories: Pale, medium, and dark. Even though there are only guilds listed in the "pale" section yet, I'm confused as to what the other sections will stand for (along with the subcategories in other sections). Do they represent the age, or some other attribute? 3 points for organization.
Content 13/20
  • I understand that your site is new, so you don't have many sites listed yet. However, to list more sites in a shorter amount of time, it might be a good idea to browse through the guild boards and find more guilds to list. I would recommend asking the guild owner if it would be alright to list them beforehand, though. 13 points for content.
Spelling/Grammar 14/20
  • Intro:
    • We offer a variety of newly created guilds to guilds well established" might sound better if it were "newly created guilds to well-established guilds.
    • In the future I will be doing reviews for Guilds;" 'guilds' should not be capiolized.
    • If you are looking to find what kind of guilds we have here to offer head on over..." A comma between 'offer' and 'head on over' would make the sentence flow better.
    • ...such as theme less or role-play so on and so on..." Since it's a list, there should be commas between each example, such as "themeless, or role-play, so on and so on...
    • If you already know what category you are looking for then off to the side of categories you will see where each of them are located such as the art guilds are located under the 'Gloss' tab." This sentence is a bit confusing. Perhaps a good wording of it would be, "If you already know what category you are looking for, then off to the side in the navigation, you will see where each of them are located. (For example, the art guilds are located under the 'Gloss' tab.)
    • Now you know how to navigate around, if you need any more questions contact annika1211." This should be divided into two sentences. Like, "Now you know how to navigate around! If you have any more questions, contact annika1211.
  • Rules:
    • Your guild should be active if it is not it will be deleted (yes I will check to make sure it is still up and running)." It's a bit of a run-on sentence. Perhaps, "Your guild should be active. If it is not, it will be deleted. (Yes, I will check to make sure it is still up and running.)" Take notice that there's pretty much a sentence in the parentheses. I just recently learned myself that, if you make a main point and you put it in parentheses, you should have a capital and a period, just like any other sentence. :)
  • Foundation:
    • Hello there I'm guessing your searching for a guild right? Well you've came to the right place." The first sentence is a run-on sentence. If you don't want to break it up into "Hello there! I'm guessing you're searching for a guild, right?" then it would be correct to put a comma between "hello there" and "I'm guessing." In terms of spelling, "your" should be "you're," and "came" should be "come." As in, "You've come to the right place." Saying "You've came" would be saying "You have came," which is like saying a double-past-tense. If that makes sense. XD
  • Eye Shadow:
    • To join an Age requirement guild you have to reach the age limit to join or you will not be accepted, the ages tend to range from 15-18 and alot will be 21." 'Age' should not be capitalized. There should be a comma between "guild" and "you" in the first sentence. There should be a period instead of a comma after "accepted." 'Alot' is actually two separate words: 'a lot.
  • Gloss:
    • These guilds are all about making art hence the name "art themed", whether its from layout making to paint we got them listed." There should be a comma between 'art' and 'hence.' There should be a period after "art themed," then making the word "whether" capitalized. There should also be an apostrophe in the word 'it's,' in this case. "We got them listed" should be "We've got them listed," and there should be a comma between "to paint" and "we've got them listed.
  • 9 points for spelling; 5 points for grammar.
Organization 15.5/16
  • The navigation is easy to use. As I previously stated, the only thing with the categories that was confusing was the subcategories in each section. Another thing that I previously mentioned was having the legend on the first page, rather than the sitely section. Other than that, it's easy to navigate and organized! 8 points for navigation; 7.5 points for organization.
Sitely 11.5/20
  • I can see the updates in plain sight; that's five points right there! However, the link back category is confusing. You have the two link backs shown in a box to the side, and in the sitely section, you have a giant text box with both of the codes in it. That makes it so you can't tell which link you're using. To make it easier, I recommend having all of the buttons shown in that section, then a text box with the corresponding code underneath it. If you're not sure how to do that, feel free to check our coding section, or you can ask us. C:
  • You don't seem to have that many listers, and you don't have any affies at all! Just like when it comes to listing those guilds, don't wait for link directories and affies to come to you; get out there and find them yourself! Don't be shy; as long as you're polite to them, they'll probably be polite back to you. :) You don't have to have affies, but it's a good thing; affies advertise each other, so it'll be good for your site. (If you don't actually want to have any affies, just Neomail me (Snowflower) and I'll adjust the score.)
  • 5 points for updates; 4.5 points for link back buttons; 2 points for listers; 0 points for affies.
Total: 71/96 or 74%
Things to improve on - Spelling/grammatical errors, some organization things, finding guilds to list, finding affies/listers
Another note - Nice job. ^-^

Let's take you to our creative thinking room so that we can help you out! Follow me. There aren't ending quotation marks after this due to a glitch. To make them show up, I would recommend putting something like a dash (-) after them.
