I'm sorry if my blunt constructive criticism was perceived as "unkind". I thought my use of an internet meme in my first post and a smiley in my second post was sufficient to convey a "tongue-in-cheek" attitude. It was never my intention to honestly offend.Originally Posted by sheister
Not asking for glitz and glam (actually, hoping for just the opposite!), and it certainly doesn't have to be expensive. If you've got control of the site, and it seems you do, then two things you can do right off the bat are to 1) update the animated .gif to make it a static, left-floated or centered, less annoying image, and 2) quit using all the text effects - there's no need for all the different text colors, sizes and highlighting. There are a bunch of articles on the web about site design do's and don'ts. Just browse a few and a website facelift could be completed in a few hours.Originally Posted by sheister
You've got one thing right: if the product is good, it will sell itself.
