    Hello,

    I'll really like to know what others think of my design. I'm just a self-taught dabbler in web design. In this revision of my website I went from basic HTML to learning a lot about css.

    I've also integrated several bits of web software I got with my new hosting package and domain name.

    thanks

    Delby

    Hi dude,

    I'm going to try and be gentle here because you are a hobbyist and we need more sites built full of information only hobbyists can and will provide...you know, useful stuff without vested interest.

    First things first, though: you need to work on your use of the apostrophe. An apostrophe is generally used to indicate a possessive case.* "Delbert's" is correct, since the models belong to you. "Model's" is incorrect, since there is nothing that belongs to a model. and since model is intended to be pluralized here. "Gallery's" is also incorrect for the same reason.

    As far as the site goes, it looks...well, like a hobbyist's site. It has lots of interesting pictures of models, and I dig the sliding effect between model and build info and other content, but it's not quite there yet. For one thing, I'd use Arial or just about any font other than Comic Sans MS. It's just a horrible-looking font no matter how it's used. I'd also look at more of the camo colors for the layout...the brown and yellow are okay, but this could use more green.

    What you may want to borrow a color scheme idea from is www.majorgeeks.com (logo idea there too if you want it).

    But still, cool stuff and it's interesting seeing someone work in a small space like that without getting claustrophobic.

    * - yes, I'm aware that there are other uses for the apostrophe, such as contractions. I was referring to the specific examples provided by this website. If all irritated grammar dictators would sit in the corner and pick apart something else, I'd greatly appreciate it.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    I think I can whimsically solve the apostrophe dillema:

    And the font dillema: Attachment 2291

    And TG provided a link for colors. You're all set
