Check out the website dudes

The Main page "English version" is done, still working on the rest of the site but I was hoping to get some feedback from EAB members if possible. Thanx in advance for you help.

With or without popups enabled, I couldn't get any of the javascript links to open (in Opera 6.05). Bill, is your page IE-only?

Nope my page is "NOT DONE!"

If you check it again you will see that I have put up a notice that buttons are not functional yet. I am still working on the site tonight so I hope to complete most of it. This was a EAB preview only to get some feedback on the main page. My site even works with IBrowse under Amiga OS by the way.

LOL! I figured as much, but I couldn't resist the urge to have a larf at your expense!

- bottom copyright should be centered
- "comic" font should be avoid
- main buttons should be less blurry

Nice I agree with RCK's ideas and I have mine:

-"English" means English in English, but "German" doesn't have a meaning in German so many websites use symbols, flags for language selection

-Rollover buttons are empty, is this intended?

-No need to use more than one font family for the sake of consistency. And using stroke effect doesn't seem to fit well.

-Login&Password part occupies too much space. Page requires more horizontal space then it should normally. Since there's nothing else to the left, that part might be moved to somewhere around the logo banner

-2d graphics are nice as well as the color decision.

When it comes to flags as a language-selector, be careful!

As a hypothetical example, some German-speaking-people-that-do-not-reside-in-Germany do not like to click on a German flag, to get to the German version of a web-site.

Stick with text.

Looks good.

However (there's always a however!)........

Links should be links !

e.g. http://www.virtualsetworks.com/Products.HatTricks.htm should be clickable.

So should these:

Video Toaster is a registered trademark of Newtek www.newtek.com

Amiga is a registered trademark of Amiga Incorporated www.amiga.com


Also put a few blank lines after the last line on the main page (Amiga is a registered trademark of Amiga Incorporated www.amiga.com).

You're right about flags, it was an example. Calling the names of the languages in their own languages with text is better.

How do I spell German in "German?"

How do I spell French in "French?"

Small typing flaw at the end of your intro dude:

" (...) my staff a call toll-free @ 1-800-852-0930 or send and e-mail.

Oh and I agree with RCK, your buttons should be a lil' more punchy!

I would have written "or send an email" instead of "or send and email"...

Concerning the buttons I find them a little bit too blurry, but it's a mattter of personal taste.
