Hey John

Here's my review! Please remember these are only suggestions and you need to what feels right to you. =)

1. Homepage - Please take a look at the screenshot


2. Games - Please take a look at the screenshot


3. Forum
I believe you can embed your lefora forum right into your site! I would encourage you to do this as it will help to keep your visitors on your site. If you cannot embed the forum, then I suggest making your link open up in a new window. Here's how you can achieve that: <a href="http://game-krazy.lefora.com&quot; target="_blank"><img src="YOUR IMAGE PATH GOES HERE></a>

4. I think your boxes are really cool! I would just add some color to them. Perhaps something that would go well with your site theme or one of your colors in your logo?

5. I would suggest that you make a small image of the logo and upload it as your favicon. You can add a favicon through the Properties.


You've done a really good job John at customizing the look of your page. The buttons are awesome! The rounded corner boxes suit the style of the website.

Please feel free to ask me for further clarification if needed. I wish you every success with this venture of yours! =)

I've been doing a lot of "behind the scenes" work on my site(s) the last two weeks, Lu. Thats why I've been so quiet lately. Gonna ask for a site review in the forum soon and I want an expert site reviewer for this. Know of any?? LOL

Your presence has been missed my friend!

Hmm.. an expert site reviewer??? Can't say I know of anyone off-hand... but if you don't mind settling for a review done by one 5 foot tall gal who does awesome screenshots.. I could probably ask her for ya! ; )

Hmm.. I was actually looking more for an expert site builder, good at html and css, fastest screenshot taker on GS, actively involved in the community, kind of person. I know... I have high expectations. If you think she fits the bill, I'd be most gratefull :-)

Your site is looking great John,
Which page on your site is the above screenshot of? I cant seem to find it.

You could either try placing them in further two column widgets, which I'm sure you must have tried already, or use the " &nbsp; "entity between the pieces of code.

Hey John.. oh no.. you deleted your page?! I've done that too! =(

One easy way to create vertical space between, is to drag a 2 column widget over and then drag another 2 column widget over and place inside one of the columns. Now you have 3 columns. You can place your boxes on the outside columns and the middle will provide the spacing needed. You can drag the middle bars to make them more equal or less equal.

The icons look great in the box!

Good job John!

Hi John.

I'm going to address your questions from top to bottom:

1. Yes... I would put in a line to help differentiate between the top menu and your content. You can do this with this code:

<div style="background:transparent; border-top:1px solid #666142; width:900px;"></div>

You can change the width, color and thickness.

2. I agree.. I would narrow the space between the boxes a little.

3. Perhaps you could move the "stardolls top designer" to the bottom of your page.

- Maybe you could use image links instead of text links for you different categories?

- "Icons created by Dryicons.com" - maybe you could make this much smaller and place underneath the menu on top? Or else... get an image link as well for that and place at the bottom beside the "Stardolls..".

4. Can you explain further about how the boxes didn't work on your page?

I know this is probably a lot of work for you.. but can you please try again.. only do it on a test page - so that your work does not get affected. Then, if there's still problems.. I can take a look at the test page and see if I can figure it out.
