    What is wrong with the design and content on this linked site (not WDF)

    Not sure I should even post this here or anywhere, but I believe there are some important lessons some can learn here. It is not my site and it is the first time I have come across it. I was curious when I saw the headline and description so went to the site at (I removed the link because it singles out someones website and there seems to be little interest.)

    Should I give my quick evaluation in a day or two?

    mlseim, you are on the right track about the content. The author interviews several people using a single question. Each response is only a paragraph or two (thin content).

    Design - the first fold is taken up by an irrelevant image with the title and author name on top of the image. Click in the scroll bar once and the same image is repeated in the content area, only the first paragraph of content is visible at the bottom of the page.
    Lots of ads occupy the side bar (content/advertising ratio).
    Going back to the top I find there is a small "start" button; clicked on it and it goes to a page with lots of images that link to other pages (did not follow any of those links)
    The design makes me want to leave the page right away but curious to find just how badly it was done.

    Way too much to read.

    I fell asleep at about line 10 of 1000 lines.

    Actually, I didn't understand what it was about.

    That's probably what's wrong with it.

    Can you put the link back up, please?
