    I want to know if someone could help me with my site? I also need to know what I should change. My graphics aren't the best though cause I am using some sucky program for a few months. My site is here
    I am a 13 year old graphics designer. I would love to make anyone who requests a logo for a price that we can discuss. I have taught myself how to make graphics. I made the winning entry for WebScalpel.com.

    Your site is not that bad. Just a few suggestions:

    1. I like your title graphic. It would look better if you set your margins to 0, like this: <body topmargin=0 leftmargin=0>. Doing that will align the image to the edge of the screen and get rid of the white margins.

    2. To minimize the white space between your title graphic and body text, I suggest moving the body text upwards.

    3. To add some visual interest, I suggest coloring the left menu column. Make sure it's a color that comes directly out of your title graphic, like #D6D9EA or #BEC1C8 or something.

    4. The blue News image looks out of place.

    5. News headlines and dates should be set apart from the rest of your text. Boldface, different color, etc. Also, make your e-mail address an actual link. It'll save your visitors time

    6. On your subpages, the section title graphics should not rival with the main header graphic.

    7. I suggest stabilizing the page with some kind of footer. Copyright info, contact info, etc. Just like you see on many sites!

    I'm sorry if this seems like a lot. I'm just a picky person.

    8. Get rid of Geocities so your users aren't scared away by the popups.

    9. In the title image the box with the platform names is misleading: I expected it to be a list of clickable platforms like a menu.

    10. Change the <title> to match your content. Your Google ranking will be through the floor if you keep it as just "Index."

    Geocities kind of does suck. I stopped doing HTML for like 4 months and this I am just using this way to get around the problem till I remember what I already learned again. I am using pagebuilder so I can't do all the detailed changes that michieepoo said. Filburt can you get on AIM? BTW, I tried making the button things clickable. I got it to work on my ducuments page but when I got on the internet it didn't do anything.

    Sorry but I only use AIM for people I know in real life (i.e. work and school).

    Real...life...people? Your ways are foreign to me, brother filburt.

    I would add a colour for the background so that your text doesn't appear quite as narrow in comparison. That whole right side is so white and...white.

    Not a bad start though!
