[SOLVED] fire away

Recommended Posts

I dont know what program you are using to edit the image. But from my experience with Photoshop, I found that small incremented gaussian blurs worked well when applied a bunch of time. This will keep the gradient looking like the original gradient you intended, but a lot smoother. Also, in Photoshop, I would use 'Save for web' as opposed to plain old save as.

im using gimp and it has "save for web" but thus far i have cheated on things like this by starting it as an over sized image then down scaling it to smooth it out.

but if i understand use the 5px by 5px blur but apply it several times?

Use save for web. You can optimize for web colors, which can produce different shades from monitor to monitor if not taken care of.

A few things I noticed.

[*]your site does not scale at all (try increasing the font size and you will see the problem)

[*]You are using multiple <br/> tags to push content down

[*]You have used lots of empty div tags (do a search for 'divitis')

[*]Your h2 tag appears above your h1 tag

[*]What is target='new'?

[*]Your HTML contains 20 errors

hey is i saw your w3validator hit. what you got was my sorry page because i block certain browser types lol. did you read my source on my site and compare it to the w3 output lmao. of course not. i dont use br to push anything on my site i use a css layout thats why i block certain browsers. the sorry page has lots of br because its pure html so all html only browsers can view it seperatly. thanks for the read tho.

 

oh and i use some css3 as well so ie7 makes it look like dodo, the validator is a generic mozilla4 user agent so it gets blocked.

run the google search page in the w3validator and see how much i should care what the validator says. if they are going to set the standard they need to keep up.

What about the major issue of scaling? the mark-up is poor.

... i dont use br to push anything on my site i use a css layout thats why i block certain browsers....

 

The following is taken from your homepage...

 

<div id="loading" class="loading-invisible">
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<h2>Loading   <img src='http://studio378d.com/load.gif' /></h2>
</div>

well i have to admit i dont account for half blind. that font is really really big. and the br you posted is to push down the word "Loading" and the loading gif on the loading cover page. i feel you are looking for problem and really reach. the font is just....whatever lol. and yes. industry leaders set the standards. always have and always will. that why apple is leading the push to css3. let me blow up the font on your sites and we shall see how you handled it. maybe ill learn something since you offer no suggestions to fix the "problems"

Notice how the site you made "retarded" actually scaled to fit the content (with the exception of the header) and you can actually read all the content on the page still.

 

The main issue with your site is the fixed height, why not let the content of #box determine its parents height.

no it didnt. the forms are to big and so is the content at the bottom of the page. a good example of you observation skills though to make a call about something you cant even see. enough of your blather.

Ok, if you don't want to take any advice I won't waste my time.

 

Here's me thinking you posted a link to your site so people could tell you what's good and what's bad about your site.

your definition of "helpful suggestion" differs greatly from the generally accepted one. you define "helpful suggestion" as anything you will agree with. isedeasy had nothing but helpful intentions regarding your scaling issue. there's no need to be outright dismissive or contentious.

what a mess of a thread. Dorky, sorry to break it to you, but criticism is supposed to sting. Saying 'whatever' to a clear flaw in your code proves that you don't care for criticism of any kind. To each his own. I would suggest not asking people to "fire away" and then complain about it when they do.

well im sorry you feel that way. i blew up google and many other sites, just to compare. none of them passed your scaling test. also if a person states they are not interested in changing a particular part of the site and you continue to push the issue rather then moving on, it has gone from helpful to pushy and/or argumentative.

i did take into consideration the suggestions i felt valid and revampd the entire site, including adding the form. still working on it but i feel it accounts for all of the good suggestions i got. thx much.

It looks pretty unappealing. The loading screen that comes up all the time seems rather pointless, and the green color doesn't fit the white background. The lack of distinction between regular text and links is problematic, and the general lack of color makes it dull and boring. Also, why did you use textareas for fields on the contact form? Overall it looks pretty unappealing and unprofessional. I would never buy web design services from a website like that.

 

The thing about statistics also sounds lame. If statistics demand you have 15 seconds to catch my attention, then why are you wasting my time with information that is not relevant to what I'm looking for?

i do hear a lot of what bad about my site but i would love more suggestions of what to do instead of this or that. negativity for negativity sake is not constructive criticism.

i could go on and on but really its a lot of nagative responses and implications with no suggested solutions or examples. if you dont post a suggested fix your just talking to hear yourself.
