    Senior Project-review my site Please!

    Hello, my name is Dan Watkins and I need an hour or two of someone’s time to look at my website, in order for me to graduate out of High School.

    --I go to Clackamas High School
    --I did something called a Senior Seminar Project; it is supposed to benefit the community.
    --I did this project and I had to present my website to a panel and I passed this part of the project.
    --The second part of the project (I supposed to do from the beginning) was to get a community consultant, and for them to grade my effort, quality of work, and to help me along in the process of completing the project.

    What I need from YOU—first I give you a Community Consultant Packet. Then you review my website, and write down what the good parts are and areas that could be improved and how it could be improved overall. Please look at code and content as well. I just need one person to do this.

    So, who will help bail me out??

    Greatly appreciated!
    I didn't know that it was insulting!

    It's ugly both on the surface and inside...
    ...when you set to do something, you need to learn about the task. When I look at that site I see no such effort. Giving such site out, would be huge disservice to the recipient....

    Working web site is not the one that looks the same in a few graphical browsers, but the one that adequately delivers its content to any device accessing it.

    Neither of you have given this person anything but smug remarks. Why bother responding to this thread if all you can do is insult?

    The least you can do is address the issues one by one in a positive manner giving suggestions and offering ideas. Isn't that what a Moderator is supposed to do?

    And if this forum was designed for professionals only, why doesn't it say so?

    There are countless books and sites that explain THE BASICS. The OP obviously have not bothered researching them, before making his site. He asked for review - I gave it to him, so he can go and do his homework.

    Had he asked what he could do to make his site better, he would have been given better advise. But no, he asked someone to take an hour or two of their own personal time to write down a review of his site for some school project. I was mearly letting him know that he would not like the outcome of the review if I were to be the one to do it.

    So this is the best you can do. Why didn't you suggest some of these books? Or websites where they can "review the basics"?

    If a 6 year old came to you with a picture they drew would you dismiss them with "It's ugly both on the surface and inside" and tell them to "go read a book and learn the basics"?

    They are obviously just learning HTML and web design and felt that it was good enough for someone to look at.

    Not everyone is as perfect as you are and I'm sure your very first website was stellar, full of imagination and perfectly organized.

    Look, if this kid needs reassuarance, he should have gone to his mom for review. This is not www.improvingmyselfesteem.com either. My first web site was not perfect, but I did research and learn before I attempted to make it, and then I did not ask anyone to review it, but kept working on it.
    Recommend books, you say? The guy asks one to spend an hour reviewing his site, yet he would not spend a minute googling "Introduction to web design".
    As far as "ugly inside out" - that was after a thick layer of sugar-coat.
