I'm Fairy and i'll be reviewing your site on Windows XP using the latest version of Firefox.
The first thing I notice is that i'm not too keen on the layout, and to be honest, I really don't like the font. It seems quite cold and edgy, and very dull. It doesn't fit with your site at all. The header itself took quite a long time to come up, but that could just be my internet.
The stars are cute, but the header itself is really quite plain, I suggest a much bigger improvement on it. I also notice quite a lot of things flashing, and not only did it hurt my eyes but I also found it very hard to focus on your text as the flashing drew me away from what I was reading.
I noticed that you put 'Afflies', i've never seen it like this before, is the 'l' not meant to be there, or is a cool, quirky thing?
Also, your cbox is wider than your navigation strip, and this needs to be tended to because it makes the layout look untidy. You can change the width by logging into your cbox panel and changing the settings.
I must say, I admire your free rice advert, i'm glad it's there as it should encourage visitors to click for a good cause.
Under your "About" on the left hand side, you have started with speechmarks, but there are no closing ones. I really think you should remove the first one, rather than adding a closing one in. You also have a comma and then a capital here, so you should remove one of these. Also, please don't start a sentence with 'And', and there's no need for a capital on 'who'. Lastly, there should be a full stop on the end of Contact Me.
I don't really like your navigation, it's too spaced out and quite small. The pink is also a little light next to the white. I think it would also be a good idea to center your button under your link me header, but I think it's great that you have offered a code for your visitors to use as opposed to making them upload themselves.
Your updates panel is okay, but again, a lot of flashing so it draws my attention from what I was looking at and I can't focus. Your site info is good, but how can you be sure that your counter is accurate? It might just be counting hits (the same visitor, just different pages), as opposed to visits, in which case I suggest a counter like Extreme Tracker as it has a lot of useful information and is really quite accurate.
I'm not quite sure why the screenie part is there, what is it a screenie of? I find it quite unecessary and it seems to just take up space. I suggest getting rid, but if you want to keep it you need to change the size of it so it fits properly in your bar.
On your 'Info' page, I don't suggest starting a sentence with 'because' either, I mean, there are situations where it can be used, but I wouldn't say this was the right place. You also hae a semi-colon at the end of everything except your Weight Loss Group.
As for your About Me page, it is very informative, which is good because it lets your visitors know a lot about you, but I don't think you should include names of schools, even if they are in your distant past. There are a lot of grammatical and spelling errors on this page, but I won't go through them all because you probably don't want that, and this review would then be quite large (not that it isn't already though!). There are also too many spaces, especially between Education and the following text, and the end of that paragraph and the information below that.
On your weight loss page, there are again grammatical and spelling errors, such as 'You're' should be changed to 'Your'. You're means 'you are', and 'You are story should be true' is not grammatically correct. I think helping other people is a good idea, but you need to be very careful. Diets and cutting back on eating are NOT good ways of losing weight and they make you very unhealthy. You need to eat healthily and exercise, you can't just stop eating and if you're going to help someone you need to mention that. I'm sorry if I sound harsh here, but my cousin is dying from an eating disorder, so weight loss issues around me are quite sensitive.
On your history page, there are a lot of spaces again that need to be gotten rid of. Also, there is a random link to your credits page at the top of this page, is this intentional, and if so, why?
I'm now onto your credits page. "This is where all the credits will be" is not grammatically correct, you should put "Below are all the people i'd like to credit, such as" and then carry on as the rest of the original sentence does. The next line should also be continuing on from the first one, not on a line of its own.
Your credits page is fine, but for your emotions, it should really be a text link like all the others as it looks quite out of place.
On your visitor page, underneath graphics, scrap where it says "Including wallpapers," because not only does the sentence not finish itself, but it is pointless because you have listed the graphics below as links. Underneath "Tutorials'", you should put your name with a capital letter, and the contact me part should be on the same line as the first one. There is no need for a seperate line. Also, don't forget your full stops! Here and further down the page!
When you describe your resources section, you don't need the descriptions part as it doesn't fit grammatically. Also, scrap the random "Want to be here? Email me!".
Your graphics are nice, if a tad plain. I think you should spend a lot more time on them, read up on a lot of tutorials and make sure quality is a definate yes for you.
Under your tutorials, get rid of the comma after "Transparent Text". Also, you have spelt colour both in the American and British versions, make sure you just use one otherwise it's untidy. Your tutorials themselves are really very good, but you need to make sure you check up on grammar and spelling rules because there are a lot of mistakes in them.
Why on earth have you got 'Content for your website' linking to the same page that this link itself is on? It needs to be changed or gotten rid of.
Since you have linked your Weight Loss Group on your sidebar, I think you should take it off your 'Info' page.
Your gallery is okay, nothing much to say on that front really.
Overall, your site does need a lot of improving in terms of the way your pages are set out, your graphics quality and especially your grammar and spelling, as they were the main problems. However, it's not a bad little site and with quite a bit of work it could be really good!
I've just realised how long this is, so i'm sorry about that! I guess I just got carried away..

Thanks for your review.
Hmm, On my lap top nothing overlaps the side bar? I have tried it both in FF and IE. So I'm not sure how I would fix it.
The weight loss group? Er. I didn't say to not eat.
Infact I am on weight watchers. I am going to the gym. And taking things slow. Sorry to hear about your cousin. But please don't assume that just because I have a weight loss group I am encourging people to not eat at all. Did you say that because that's what my page gave off? Or where you just stating it randomly?
As for my grammar. I'm not the best at English. And I will fix up the main mistakes, but I won't be grammatically correct for some time. except for the obvious ones like "They're" etc.
@ the content for website. I didn't know it did that. It's not meant to be a link at all. I shall fix that soon.
Thanks for your review
killthehurt gave it on 20th Feb 2009 and said:
I'm not too impressed by your layout, really. The colors don't go good together, and the font is pretty boring. Times New Roman? Let's save that boring font for school (: One thing I also noticed, was the width of the cbox is larger than the width of the rest of the sidebar. So you'll want to change that to the right width.. And same with the picture under screenie.
Layout: As I said before, I'm a little disappointed. The colors are all over the place. That dark blue Times New Roman title makes it even worse :/ CSS? Eh, could be better. Pretty bland.. For the navigation links, make them stand out a little more! They're even smaller than the regular links :b Also, not too sure why there's that huge space between 'Weightloss' (which should be Weight Loss) and 'Group'
You have a big space between the beginning of your sidebar to the actual side header.. I'm not sure if you want that there, but it looks a little off.
Under the Link Me section, both should be centered, it would look nicer. Especially since everything else under the sidebar is.
A+ for centered layout & Free Rice! Helping people's always good, woo!
Sorry, I don't have time right now to complete the review, but I hope what I have told you has helped a bit? :)

Rai gave it on 20th Feb 2009 and said:
When I first entered your website I was very disappointed by the quality of your header. I thought that your layout would be high quality since you are running a design website. If I were looking for resources I would imediately exit your website upon seeing your layout. I would think that that is the same quality and amout of effort you put into the rest of your designs.
I am not a fan of it. I do not really like light, light grey background. I think something a bit darker would have looked better. Your header is very, very poor. I like the blue text color you used and I think it would have worked nicely with the pink if the pink was a bit darker. It is too light for the whitish background color it is on.
You have a huge empty space at the bottom of your site, just before the footer. That definately has to go.
The text alignment for your 'About;' in your sidebar should be changed to 'justify' instead of center. Also, the semi-colon you have after the 'About' should be removed.
You navigation text is way too small I think. Here is a link to a very good tutorial for vertical navigation menus: http://truechaos.co.uk/tutorials/coding/vertical_navigation_menu/
Your link and link code under 'Link Me?' should be centered.
You should list your affiliates in alphabetical order and put the 'More?/Apply?' link under them. Try sorting your affiliates in two lists if you can. And change your 'More?/Apply?' link to this: 'More // Apply'.
Also, in your navigation 'WeightLoss Group' should be changed to 'Weight Loss Group' and the huge space between 'Loss' and 'Group' should be changed to just a single space. 'PhotoGallery' should have a space in between.
Your layout is centered which is good.
Info - The following sentence:
Here you shall find all the info about this site, it's owner, and the credits page. Enjoy
should be changed to:
Here you will find all the information about this website, and its owner.
I removed the 'and the credits page. Enjoy' part because it is already somewhat implied when someone is browsing your website.
Also, you should list this page in alphabetical order. Try not to use abbreviations such as 'atm'. Instead, write out the whole thing; 'at the moment'.
You should change the following sentence:
Where you'll find info about how I got my name / who hosts me etc. Great fascinating stuff. I'm sure it'll keep you riveted
Here you will find out how I got my name and who hosts me. It's great fascinating stuff. I'm sure it'll keep you riveted!
About Me - I do not really like the format foy your list of 'Basics'. Try changing to this:
Location: Auckland, New Zealand
Color: Blue [This should be more specific. Is it your eye color? Your favorite color?]
History - Well done and contains a sufficient amount of information. Just remember those abbreviations.
Credits - This page looks a bit messy. Try only putting text links here and place them in alphabetical order.
Visitor - This page is well organized a has a good amount of resources for visitors.
Overall, I think you need to work on a more visually appealing layout so your visitors will not be turned off right from the start.

I'm Stephanie and I'll be reviewing your site. hope that you find my review helpful.
I'm Giving this site a rating of 3 1/2 Because...
First impressions / Layout:
the header is a bit boring =/
a bit too plain needs more color.
Navingation Okay , but a bit hard to read becouse of the size and the link effect.
A few resources and tutorials ,definitely needs more, it will persuades your visitors to come back and in the end help your site get many views, it does not have to to be much but some always helps.
Need the layout header needs sorting. You just need to work on your content and try and be more creative with your colors and designing, Other than that your site looks decent .

Theresa gave it on 18th Feb 2009 and said:
1. Quick First Impression (2/5)
Upon entering blueragedesigns.net, I assumed it was going to be a design site or a graphics site. While it appears that this may be so, my first impression was that these were going to be low quality graphics and/or designs. The header image is of poor quality and extremely simple. This image is something that anyone with beginner graphic experience can accomplish with only a few hours of training (if not less). Not only this, but the header image ends very awkwardly, very abruptly, it doesn't leave a finished look at all. My first impression is that I won't be obtaining any resources from Blue Rage Designs.
2. Aesthetics (2/5)
Beyond the poor quality header image that made a horrible first impression, I find that the rest of the site is quite
unprofessional looking as well. When I come across a design site, I expect a certain level of professionalism. This
is a site where the owner is offering their services, services that are offered because not everyone can accomplish
these things. This site does not give me the impression that the owner knows any more (or any less for that matter)
then the average Joe.
The pink and blue colors are not bad colors, but being used in the manner that they are, they seem juvenile. If an
individual plans on being taken seriously with a site like this, I highly suggest being more professional and not coming
across so immature.
Your sidebar content seems to be mostly centered within your sidebar and I rarely find this attractive. It's not bad looking for the link buttons you have on the lower right of your site, but for your menu text and your "Affies" section, it's unappealing.
The blog itself is kind of jammed all together. There doesn't appear to be any real difference between the time and date of the blog and the blog content itself. The majority of your blog titles, while with a different font style and color, are actually smaller then the content of the blog itself. Your blog titles should be larger then the main blog content this
way it can grab the attention of your viewer, stand out so that your readers know the beginning of each post and they know what they are going to read without actually having to read it. Upon scrolling to the bottom of the page, there is a HUGE white blank area between the last post and the footer content. There's no obvious reason for this gap, it appears to be some kind of coding area. It's not pretty.
3. Functionality (3/5)
Considering it is a design site, the navigation should have more to do with DESIGN. Unfortunately, the menu yields
only one small area named "Visitor", which I get the impression would be the offered resources. If this is a design site,
isn't the entire site supposed to be based upon the visitor? So why not just put the visitor content on the main page?
4. Content (3/5)
a. Index - Your personal posts are fine in my opinion but the posts that have site updates also often include personal
post information. You should separate these things because it makes your posts unorganized and could be confusing
to some people.
There seem to be more external links then internal content. While there's nothing wrong with having a lot of links on you site, If you want people to visit YOUR site, then maybe more content on the main menu would be helpful, otherwise they're more likely to click on an external link and might ignore the majority of your own content.
b. Info - This leads me to a page with other links. This can deter visitors from actually clicking on these sub-pages. Many visitors are lazy and they do not want to invest the time and effort that it takes to click through multiple pages to get to the small bit of information they are looking for. You should consider putting the main information your your site and yourself on this page along with more links to click on, at least this way the visitor gets a little something of what they were looking for. Even a description or a beginning quote a few lines long for each section may entice viewers to keep clicking.
b1. About Me - Nice basic profile at the top, although you should work more on your list styles, with more detail in paragraphs below. I'm very partial to this layout for an "about me". The fact that you don't know what to say about yourself, while part of who you are, is also very redundant throughout many personal sites and doesn't show me that you are significantly different that many others. It just seems typical. The rest of this page is good though, you put a whole lot of information, each major bit of information has its own section, which is good for navigation.
b2. Weightloss group - I have personally never had a problem with my weight, so I can't say that I relate to this, but I imagine those who do relate could gain quite a bit of information off of this page. You give a run down as to why you wanted to lose weight, how much you've lost and I can see it appears that you've reached (or overshot) your goal, which is great. You even have a weight loss blog, which while is lacking in content shows that you've made more effort then most to share your trials. You want to share you story with others, whether to help or just to brag, either way it will be useful to someone I am sure.
b3. Website info - I don't think I have anything negative to say about this section, which I am sure you're quite happy about. There's much information here, more then I provide most times, and I don't see it leaving people with a lot of typical questions.
b4. Credits - This is a good section because you tell people what you're crediting certain sites for. I can not count how many times I have stumbled on a "credits" page that just lists a crapload of pages with no information on what those sites are to be credited for.
c. Visitor - This is pretty organized, plain, but organized. Easy for me to find what I am looking for, assuming there's something specific.
c1. Wallpapers - Wallpapers for what exactly? The purple wallpaper is a good size, but your Marilyn Monroe (which I might add is against copyright laws to distribute her image without permission from the owner) is only 640x480, extremely small for a desktop.
c2. Patterns - Your patterns aren't the worst I have seen, but they're not high quality. I wouldn't personally use them for anything, they're nothing that I couldn't make myself if I had the urge.
c3. Images for comments - The idea is cute, I don't like the images. I feel as though they were quickly put together and not much thought or effort went into them.
c4. Pre-made Backgrounds - The majority of these just seem too busy and they're not something I would personally use. With that said, I do think they are fun and if used properly could prove attractive.
c5. Tutorials - I love that you've put effort into these. Screen shots and detailed instructions are wonderful!
c6. Content for your website - This just leads to the page I am already on and I am not sure what its true purpose is on this page.
c7. Resources - Great list of resources WITH DESCRIPTIONS! Sorry, got a little giddy. It's not often that you find a list of links with descriptions, I love this page and find it well done.
All in all, I have given your site a 2.5 out of 5. I do appreciate much of the content but this strikes me as more of a personal site then a design site. Considering the name of the site, I expected it to be more of a graphic site, so that bit through me off. Your graphic creation skills are not of high quality. With a name like "Blue Rage Designs" I expected the graphic portion of your site to be more powerful, stronger, but it was kind of weak.
UPDATED 18 Feb 09:
It depends on how you organize it on whether or not it appears cramped. If i very well wanted to, I could put most (or all) of the content of a personal site one one page, if I organize it properly, I can go about making it look tidy.
Using Firefox on Windows | Report This?
Thanks for your review. Hmm if I put more content on the main page, wouldn't it look more cramped? That's why I shorted it, because there where to many links on the navigation.
That isn't the only thing I took in btw, but I'm just about to head out,
PREA gave it on 17th Feb 2009 and said:
Admittedly, I expected more from the overall design. I found the font, color scheme, and general layout made it hard to focus on the content. I also wasn't sure what the site offered and the navigation was difficult for me.

All said previously. That's a great review. How shall I use it to my advantage?
Shadow gave it on 17th Feb 2009 and said:
This layout is...all over the place. Let's start with the header. The header looks rushed, and it has your site name (in blue, which throws the entire thing off) just on top using Times New Roman. It's very rare that it would look good like this on any site. I don't like that header at all.
The color scheme isn't good either. The light pink links on the light gray is a bit hard to read, and then on hover, the light blue stricken out is worse. When searching for a color scheme, I use COLOURlovers.
The navigation gets lost. I couldn't find it for a while, and what happens when someone can't navigate a site? They leave frustrated. I don't know why there's a long space in your weight loss group link, and "photogallery" and "weightloss" is two words. Read up on this.
However, I will give you props, because this is the first time you've coded something, so I will give you an A for effort there.
Blog and Sidebar(s)
A three-column layout can look good, but only if there is reason for it. It's very rare that two sidebars are needed. If you cut out all of the extra stuff, such as the Freerice thing (that can have a link on your links section (if you have one), the screenshot (really cute desktop by the way), and the c-box (they invented guestbooks for this reason--not as invasive or ugly if you can modify it to match the site layout), you can knock off one sidebar easily. If you don't need it, get rid of it.
With that being said, you can up the size of the main text a bit and it would be much easier to read (I tried this myself). You also need some side padding on your right side. Your entry titles are too small. You should be able to distinguish them from regular text, but you're not able to; it looks like a regular link. You might need to up the line height just a little.
The other pages
Info: I don't like link-only pages, but this has a description, so it's a little better. You have a very long about me. And I thought mine was long. That's great though. However, there are a lot of grammar problems and misspellings. If I pointed them all out, I would spend 600+ words on just that. I don't have that kind of time; I have a date later on. Okay, no I don't, but when you're going to put a long story like this up, proofread it first. If you're not sure, ask. I can see that you write pretty well, but with a lot of mistakes (common mistakes).
All the other things here are fine, except since you have the weight loss group page linked in the main navigation. It doesn't need to be in both places.
Visitor: I'm not a huge fan of visitor sections on sites, and the more I see them, the more I don't like them. There are a few people who have goodies for their visitors and it's 100% original stuff, but those are few and far between. But I'll point out some stuff here.
-I love the wallpaper you recently made. The Marilyn one, not so much. Never mind the copyright infringement, but if I were to stretch this to my resolution (1280x800), it would look even worse than how it looks now. It's better to let go of it now.
-Some of your patterns are passable, but still forgettable.
-I don't get the comment images thing. What is its use? I know you explain it, but I still don't get it.
-Your first background is cute. Everything else makes my eyes bug out.
-You have a few GIMP tutorials here. That's great, because I haven't seen many sites in the "teen graphics pool" offer them. They are explained well too, even though the effects are cheesy. It works for those just starting, I guess.
-If your website visitor goodies (not sure what the difference between this and the other stuff you have up now is) isn't done yet, then don't link it anywhere until it is.
-You have a good list of resource links here, including Sims 2 resources (that's dear to my heart) and Colourlovers. Oh, so you do know about them. I know you said that you don't use them as much anymore, but you should really peruse through it some more. It will definitely help your little scheme problem here.
Weight Loss Group: Honestly, I think that this needs its own subdomain or something.
You said not to comment on your 200+ errors unless we know how to fix it. I know how to fix the first error: Get rid of the Iframe. Where is the Iframe? In the c-box. I know that you want to enable people to leave short notes and the like, but they can do that with a guestbook. Other things to look for:
In XHTML, <img> tags need an end tag. So instead of
<img src="blah.jpg">, you should have
<img src="blah.jpg" alt="" />The same thing goes for
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />and
Header tags (
<h6>) cannot go into
<p>tags. You opened up a
<p>tag, but never closed it. Hence, you have several errors due to just that.
ID's can only be defined once, classes can be defined an infinite amount of times. So, you can't use
<ul id="navi">, but you can use
<textarea>, you need to define rows and columns. So instead of
<textarea name="textarea">, you would use
<textarea name="textarea" cols="10" rows="20">.
Don't forget that line breaks (
<br />) need that ending slash at the end in XHTML. Also, alt attributes are needed for images. And finally everything in XHTML is lowercase.
But like I said, the unclosed
<p>tag is causing most of your errors. Look at the semantic CSS list tutorial I gave you, and you can style your affiliate links and navigation much better than how you have them now.
All in all...
I give you props for trying to code your site for the first time. It will get better when you make more layouts.
As it is, your site is all over the place. The color scheme is horrid, and that header is bad. That wallpaper you created proves to me that you do have a grasp of GIMP, and you can make pretty things if you don't rush through it. That's what you need to do--not rush through your designs.
You need to eliminate the second sidebar. You don't need it; if you got rid of some of the things that are cluttering up your page, then it would be a lot nicer.
Clean up your grammar. While you do explain things well, your grammar is a bit...whoa. Yes, you don't put extra letters where there aren't supposed to be any, and you don't type in all caps. However, there are common grammatical mistakes that you should look at. Proofread. But this is just the grammar freak coming out of me.
Your site does have potential, but you need loads of work, so good luck on that. :)

Thanks for your review.
Also thanks for helping with the coding, I seriously couldn't figure it out.
iframes. I have a lot of them because of the rotations I am on. Is there a way to change them? >.<
Those comment images. That was just a test. It was a pretty lame idea I know.
Thanks a lot. :D for not being so harsh etc. I know I am very amateur at this.

i think you can improve the header image and instead of just putting an image there and your website title. i personally hate that font (i think it should just die cos it's really really horrible hehe) so i suggest you change it to something else. the header image looks smaller than the three column so if you can make it wider and put in more elements inside, i think it should look good :) oh and lose the stars, your layout is based on blue and pink so we don't want anything that's not in the family. also, maybe you can change the colours of your cbox, that would be great as well.
kudos for the three layout column though and the your blog posts font is <3

Roxy gave it on 17th Feb 2009 and said:
Your header image is very bland and not appealing to the eye in the least. I like the stripes going off to the side, but don't like how they stop where they do. A design possibility for them would be to have them as a striped background for the header instead.
That shooting star in the middle, is it a brush? If so, it looks a little choppy and just takes away from the header design to me. I'm not a fan of the title's font nor the color. I feel you could have used a better font such as Century Gothic and backed it up with another "rounded" font...as for the color, use something that actually matches with the rest of the site. =)
I'm not a huge fan of three column layouts, but that is just personal preference. I feel that there is a lot being thrown at me on the main page and that isn't always a good thing! You want your visitor to almost go in order of what they see (hope that makes sense). For example...the first thing that catches my eye is the left side navigation...why? Because of the eye catching link exchange banners you have lined up there...That's a big no-no as you do not want your visitor to click AWAY from your site.
I know the reason for this is probably to be on the first or every page of your link exchange/affiliates website, correct? But what is the point in that if you're just having them exit your page and go to theirs?
I see you have two sections for Link exchange...shouldn't one be enough? I would highly recommend just placing all of these link exchanges on ONE page and possibly leaving just your affiliates on the main page as they are more important then your exchanges....no?
You could easily make this into a two-column website (which would make it look so much more appealing) if you got rid of the "Laptop" section (not sure who would be interested to know all that?). Moved the "credits" section to the footer, got rid of the "Link me" section and possibly add to an "exit" or "site" page. You could then add the sections in order of importance:
Poll (not to fond of this, since it overlaps your column's width)
Cleaner, appealing, and gets your visitors to where YOU want them to go!
Lastly, the light pink color for the links is a tad hard to read on the white BG, I would suggest going with the pink hue you have for the "Date;" wording you have in your updates, as that is darker and much more easier on the eyes.
Info: Very organized and sufficient amount of information about you, your website, your group, and also credits!
Visitor: Interesting content. Your tutorials are pretty easy to understand, good luck on writing more in the future. REMEMBER to write what YOU KNOW. If you are ever not completely sure on something or think it may be wrong, do not write a tutorial about it and confuse a poor soul too. Just a word of caution as I have seen this done many times! If the page does not exist, do not link to it! This goes for the "Content for your website" page. The resources page seems nice, you have racked up quite the collection and I see where this would prove useful to any visitor! =)
Weight loss Group: This page seems rather interesting and I'm sure it would be very useful. Unfortunately I find it a bit random to say the least as you have a blog for it, why not just link it from there? This site seems more geared to a web/designers audience rather to people trying to lose weight. You see where I'm going with this?
Photo Gallery: Not much to say about this, nice photos? heh.
Overall: You're site has a lot of potential and a lot of room to grow. I believe you have what it takes with more practice and patients. It would be very useful to yourself if you read more on designing, especially the elements of design. Don't be afraid to look outside of the box and come up with your own ideas, looks, and even tutorials! Original content and creativity is always a plus on the web! Oh, btw you asked if there were any free stock photography website out there...I know of one that is actually pretty good:
Stock.Xchng is a free Stock photography website. It's user submitted work and each photographer or artist has their own set of rules you must abide from before using their work, but you don't have to pay and signing up is also free!
Well good luck!

You're welcome. I'm glad you could find my suggestions useful!
As for the link exchange's, well if they say you cannot put it on an "exist's page" I suppose leaving it on you're main wouldn't hurt, just don't have it so up front...for example, maybe placing that section further down the column list would do? =D
Once again you're welcome, I have no reason to be harsh, after all this website is all about helping out one another. =)

Thank you for reviewing my site. :)
I want a two collem layout. I just wasn't sure of what to get rid of though. I agree, the lap top thing is pointless.
The poll was just a random thing, it shows up fine on my bf's screen. but he's a freak and has a huge bloody screen. I may get rid of it.
This was my first layout fully coded by myself. The header before that was was worse. and pink.. I dunno. I had an obbession with it when I coded the layout. Not a good idea I know.
The link exchange. Do you think it's allowed to put it on a "exits" page or something? They say not to. But I mean, who's going to actaully notice. So I fully see your point.
Thanks again. :) You've given me some good ideas that I will posibly put into use. And thanks for not being harsh about it. :)
