I feel like ranting. Click 'Read More' if you REALLY want to read this post.
Ugh. There are certain things that make a good site, and certain things that don't. Here are some of my personal Online Pet Peeves.
Pet Peeve Number 1: IT'S TOO FLASHY
Some websites have the whole sparkly-flashy background thing going on. It's fine, really... But when it's distracting you from the actual site, then maybe it's too much. Some websites go a tad bit overboard, and I'm just all, "MY EYES! THEY BUUURRRNNN!"
Pet Peeve Number 6: SO MUCH GRAPHICS
Along the lines of 'It's too flashy': IT'S TOO SPARKALAY!!!! [Or blinky, or... Yeah. You get the point.] Now, you might have flashy backgrounds AND flashy graphics everywhere. Personally, I don't want my eyes to melt. Keep it unique, not too simple, not too flashy. I honestly love graphics. They spice up the page :] But do they need to be EVERYWHERE? Too many can also cause the site to load slower.
Pet Peeve Number 2: TOO MANY COLORS
You only need one basic color. Some sites make all of the words like a rainbow. Or, the words are like, YELLOW against a WHITE background. Or BLACK against a DARK BLUE background. I mean, what? I really don't want to have to strain my eyes to read. I know you might want to make your website look cool, but consider your viewers too.
Pet Peeve Number 3: SUPER LONG WEBSITE NAMES
I don't like typing super long things. I mean, does your website have to be super long? For example:
Heh. That's so long. I don't even know if that's an actual site...
Woah. For a second there I thought it said 'I like pee'. Ew.
Pet Peeve Number 4: ACCOUNTS
Actually, I'm fine with accounts! I just don't like it when the people who don't have accounts, can't do anything. For example, you need an account to access anything that isn't the homepage. At least give us a reason to make an account- if we like the parts without an account, maybe we'll like the parts with an account too! But we won't know, because you need an account to access everything. [Woah. I said account a lot. ...I said it again, didn't I?]
Pet Peeve Number 5: NO BLOG
No blog? That's so sad! I love blogs. If you don't have one, it's like you have no life. And I'm pretty sure you do... But, yah know, we wouldn't know. Cuz y'alls don't have any blogs.
Pet Peeve Number 6: NO GUESTBOOK
No guestbook is like, not having a blog. It's sad! Now, we can't tell you how awesome your site is! D:
Pet Peeve Number 7: FONTS
Heh. For a second there I thought I typed 'farts'. >///<
Anyway, make sure your font is readable. Some fonts are readable, but others are just easier to read.
Pet Peeve Number 8: TOO EXCITED
There are sites that are like, "Welcome to the best site ever!", and when you actually click on the other pages... There is nothing. It's all "Coming soon!" Please put your site up when it's actually ready. Thank you.
Argh. Pet Peeves.
But, everyone's sites are awesome. Like, CYBER HUG AWESOME.
