PLEASE READ: Website Critique Posting Guidelines

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

So .... you've finished your site and you need critique. Or you just feel like helping out or having a dig at someone's efforts. Well - this IS the place, but please be aware of the following:

 

For those after critique:

  • If you used a template, and you have not provided the relevent credits to the template creator as required, DO NOT POST YOUR SITE FOR CRITIQUE HERE. We do not condone blatant theft of other people's hard work.
  • If it's not your own site you want critique on, DON'T EVEN GO THERE!
  • The Website Critique board is for getting help, suggestions and feedback for your site - not a place to plug for new site members, as this makes your topic nothing more than spam. If you want people to test out member-only features, provide a test account username/password. Do not encourage people to join up. The general forum guidelines do apply here still...
  • before you ask for a critique, please view your site at different normal resolutions and with at least two browsers. You may be amazed to learn that not everyone has the same choices as you think are the best.

 

 

For critics:

  • "it's great", "wow", "nice job" or even "it's rubbish" with nothing to back it up is NOT a critique, but most probably a quest to increase one's post count. As these type of posts offer no help to the site owner and no help to those reading, they will more than likely be removed. If you like a site, say why. If you dont like it, say why.
  • it's helpful to identify what browser(s) and resolution(s) you used to view the site.  Many times, a comment is incomprehensible to the OP who may be stuck using wizzbrowser 27.0 at a screen resolution of 4000x4000
  • If you need to find out more info that is not offering your own thoughts, help, suggestions, etc (such as "wow, how did you do that? where did you get that from?" - a PM to the member in question is all that's required, and will keep the topic - well - on topic. Besides, many questions that are asked that fall under this category can be answered by one of the items in the Resources Sticky

 

Cheers!

You might want to add 1 more rule: Must reply to at least 2 other requests for review. This will help to eliminate spam, etc. Also it would be best to require they start with the topics that are OLDER and have the least amount of replies, to help ensure that each user gets a fair turn, and lazy people don't just pick from the top so they can hurry up and post their own. For example, in order of priority:

 

Threads with 0 replies, oldest first, not to exceed second page; Has priority over all else;

Threads with 1 replies, oldest first, not to exceed front page; Has priority over all following;

Threads with 2 replies, oldest first, not to exceed front page; Has priority over all following;

Threads with more than 2 replies, who cares.

 

as code, if might look like this:

 

if (Threads with 0 replies, oldest first, not to exceed second page){
reply to it;
}else{
if (Threads with 1 replies, oldest first, not to exceed front page){
	reply to it;
}else{
	if (Threads with 2 replies, oldest first, not to exceed front page){
		reply to it;
	}else{
		reply to front page threads with least replies;
	}
}
}

 

Eh, just a thought.
