    Website Reviews Forum Threads

    Hi,

    Shouldn't we require that websites to be reviewed should be finished and not "under construction" before they are posted in that forum for a review? It kind of seems pointless, since these people will need to make another post to get the finished web site reviewed anyway. If they need help with their site, can't they ask specific questions in relevant forums?

    Just a thought,

    'Twould be of great help ... Seconded.
    This, however, does ruin the point of making someone else do the whole thing for them, which is the intention of several users ...

    again, I agree.

    Hmm... I disagree with this one. Why make users wait until the site is finished to get feedback? Once it's finished, making changes is more of a pain. It would, of course, be nice if they waiting until it was close, but no point in completely finishing it before feedback is asked for. My opinion, anyway...

    You do make a point, Ryan. I guess for users that are slightly inexperienced and/or aren't sure if their site matches up to standards, it's understandable. I thought perhaps that those questions could be refined specifically and posted in relevant forums. For example, rather than ask the congregation, "My site isn't finished. I'm inexperienced and want to get things right. I want to know if I'm on the right track." One ought to refine questions to specifics: "My site isn't finished, and I'm having a problem with [insert design issue here]." Of course, when there are no problems, and the final ideas are set in motion, even if the site is under construction still, it's acceptable in my mind to ask for a review prior to the site's official launch. I suppose it should be emphasized that the members of this forum are here primarily to provide assistance and support for problems, issues and discussions for everyone, instead of "doing everything" for members who ask vague questions. Am I wrong, and if so, to what extent? I prefer to fully understand the responsibilities of being a member here so that I can develop a helpful and responsible conscience.

    I think it depends. If under construction means I haven't done anything, then I don't like it. But if it means It's almost done, and its just not public, but online, then it is fine. If the second case is true, I agree with ryan. Otherwise I disagree.

    It is much harder to review anything that doesn't exist in anything other than thoughts. We all know we always think it the best it could be, but it doesn't always turn out that way. However, I will second that it is easier to edit if the page is completed, but not publically viewed, than actually to be all published and ready to go.

    I guess it depends on your interpretation of "under construction"

    Is a website ever finished?

    that's a nice one to think about, and I would say probably not, which seems to be your belief as well.

    A website can be launch-finished, static-finished, or complete-finished. That is, ready for public viewing, ready for public viewing with all content in place, or everything is just right, not sense in changing it for now... and life can go on within the site (i.e.: blogs). If a site is any of those, it can go up for review... that is don't ask for review, change everything once you post, then post again. As long as it's all there, it can be reviewed; fix up any errors before you launch it. If it isn't, don't just say "what should I do?" Too open ended.

    The thread summed up in a post. I agree with it ...
