What Else Does My Site Need?


illdevilinc

Hey everyone,
I am doing a repair job on my videos right now but i am wondring what my site is missing. I feel like it is missing a lot but i am not sure what is missing. I am getting a decent ammount of visitors to my site right now but they are going only to the videos. Please comment on Everything you see that needs improvement on the site or what you think it is missing. The site is http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/. But if you would like ot please comment on http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ as that is my parent company site. And if anyone is interested i need some people to help me with the site in getting it back up. Basicly at this moment all i need is people that are good in HTML and PHP. But i also have other positions available. If you want to know some of the positions just email me at illdevilinc@gmail.com. For the people that help me i am unable to pay you in money but we can compromize what you get in return for helping me.
Thanks everyone,
and again the two sites are:
http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ (IDI Metal Music, Xisto Hosted)
and,
http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ (The IDI Parent site, hosts The Videos, IDI Auctions, and IDI Link Exchange)

P.S.
If you can give me ideas of what i can put on the Ill Devil inc Parent Site (http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/) because i dont know what else to put on it.

hey, pretty nice job! I owuld just recommend maybe a different style, the red and black look kind of weird together. The page also looks alittle busy, maybe take some of the stuff off and put it on other pages. Other than that, it looks pretty nice. Kepp up the good work

A small suggestion for the music on your first site.The music quality is HORRIBLE. It's skips and it choppy on all the songs(I'm 100% sure it's not me). Try fixing the music quality a bit.Also, your site lacks much of any navigation. All the links are on the top of the page, maybe put them in an acuall nav table(the music site).

Just a few quick suggestions:-Try varying up the fonts. https://www.acidfonts.com/ is a great website to get some fresh fonts.Remember though, fonts that you have might not be fonts that we have. Try putting them into an image file and substituting that image file where your text would normally go. Cool fonts definitely add kick to any website.-Symmetry always looks nice. Perhaps line up the links in the top using the <center> or <align> tag.-I like the black and red. I like the black and yellow. I like the black and white. But somehow the black + red + yellow + white seems a little distracting. An idea would be to stick to a colour theme... Pick your fav three colours: a background, a contrast and an intermediate. Work with those and add variety by selecting different shades of those colours, e.g. firetruck red, scarlet, dark pink etc.-I find the flash/title banner with the scrolling & expanding text to take away from the site's overall appeal. It looks a little too flashy. That's just my opinion.-Grey mouseovers... consider revising to suit your colour theme-Pictures say a thousand words. More images would surely kick up your site's flair. How about a picture of an electric guitar, something with spikes (I'm not too familiar with the metal genre but I think you catch my drift).-Try compressing your website. I didn't check the source code but if you've built the website with tables, try tweaking the table's width to say... "900" and center it. It depends what you're going for. I personally like to leave some space on both sides.I hope that helps! Those are of course just my suggestions. Great start and keep up the good work!

Hey everybody, I have no idea what it is that I'am doing. Does anyone know exactly how long it will take for someone to get up to 30 credits? I mean I really don't do anything but work so I have time but I was just curious. I need the space for a site I want to make for a game I play online. Well thanks for your time everyone and be good.

Hi XZ,First off, welcome to Xisto. I think your message might be a bit misplaced but I'm sure one of the moderators can fix that later on.To reply to your question though (hopefully you check back), it doesn't take long to get the 30 credits. In fact, don't focus on the 'credits'. Focus on contributing good posts to this forum. The credits will come naturally (based on the quality, not quantity of your posts).So browse around, have fun and speak/type what's on your mind. Remember to follow the posting rules though. Contribute and in no time, you'll have the credits necessary to get your site running.Peace up.

A small suggestion for the music on your first site.
The music quality is HORRIBLE. It's skips and it choppy on all the songs(I'm 100% sure it's not me). Try fixing the music quality a bit.

Also, your site lacks much of any navigation. All the links are on the top of the page, maybe put them in an acuall nav table(the music site).

On my computer on 700 and something DSL it works fine. If your refering to the video on the Home page at the time of this post (5/24/06) the video is ment to scratch and skip. It is not the quality it is just how the video is. The navigation system is my next thing to change on that site.

Just a few quick suggestions:

okay im going to do this in the format you did so i dont have to quote idvidual items.

-I like keeping the fonts unversal and not use new fonts. All the fonts i use come standered with Microsoft Windows XP computers.

-I am going to change the whole navidation images so this will be taken care of already soon.

-I will work on a color theme after i change the navigation system and if you have any color suggestions please tell me.

-Im not sure about the flash part but what would you place there instead?

-i am working on some pictures.

-My tables are automatic so they will automaticly adjust to fit your screen

thank you for your suggestions,

Ahh, a typical tripod style site. No offense or anything, but I think it needs a lot of work.

 

One thing that really drives me up a tree is when there is music playing constantly in the background. It may seem like a good idea to play the music you like, but it drastically removes from the sites professionalism. Also, your theme does not fit together at all. The typical way you used for navigation also, removes from the profesionalism of the site. Text based links, don't really cut it anymore. If anybody looks at your site and sees that, they are almost sure to not make a note of it as it really looks like a simple, slopped together site. I see lots of potential in your site, but you should work a little harder on the template.

I think you should get a more professional looking layout. the red and colors and the overall style looks very un-professional and unappealing to new visitors.

You have good contents to envy but the way you have arranged or placed the contents are not the best, there is room to improve. I wouldn't mind you retain the color combination since it suits well with the name of the site. It is a wonderful idea that you choose those two colors and mix it. It is a plus point I should say.After we scroll down the tables and are done with those the content below look very messy. I think you can still put them inside some table or box to give a better look. And instead of keeping the width to 100% it may be better to keep in 800x600 pixels so that for those with high monitor resolution they won't have to look east and west.

i am not a very good designer. And if anyone is willing to design a home page for me or find a sutible template for my site, that wont make me get rid of all the contents.
thanks for your help and comments,

The layout of the site can be a little bit. I mean its overall good, but its not that great. The color of the site may be good for your theme though. Oh yeah, nice video
