My Website 'Michael Recycle'





unknownsomeone
This is my first website and it is called 'Michael Recycle'
basically it is a very silly site about quite a serious issue ; the environment.
http://x10.890m.com
it needs improving, can i have advice please?
thanks.
InsanePL
First of all:
You should center the splash
Background is verrry horible, dont use patterns like this cuz site is illegible:P
You can use images instead of plain color for headers

Perhaps you could make the background more subtle, reduce the brightness of the background? So it's more washed out... Making the black text stand out more.

Your video is in AVI format.. this may be just me, but I would rather watch a flash movie than have to download the AVI.... why not put have a little flash player for the video. It can just load in your page then, and people don't have to wait as long! (I'm thinking of the majority of users)

I agree with what InsanePL said about the splash page, it will look way better. Put a blank line below the image too. Maybe have a bigger image too?

Otherwise, good site! - Thanks
unknownsomeone
Ok, the website has been totally changed
http://properbin.co.uk
the forum has 28 members and almost 400 posts.

Still can't read the site with that ridiculous background. Instant back button for me. I'm sure you would get more members/looks if you fix that.

Hey,

The new background image is a start - why not make it more "washed out" by increasing the brightness. That should make the black text stand out more.

You can probably get rid of the CO NR website links, seeing as you aren't under their site extension any more.

That's all I got at the mo Smile

Keep at it!

Thanks.

Sorry to say this..but i have to..Please change the background image....It's a bit horrible..Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Sorry to be harsh...Make the site more attractive...So that you can draw in more and more visitors and members for your forums...!! Laughing Cool Laughing

I have to say that so far I agree with everyone else. I think that your backgroung is still tooooo busy, it distracts way too much from reading. In addition to that one more thing that bothers me visually is the bright blue header at the top of the page. If you are using that color of greenin the background, mabye you should try to stick to the yellow color you use as a header later on the page, if you want them to look different from each other try two different shades of yellow. Try to avoid jumping all over the place in reguards to your color pallete try to use a very limited number of colors and vary the shade. I just think without something to tie the colors together it looks a little overwhelming to the eyes.

I can't find a good background. Which colour text would make the text readable?
And as for style, i'm not great at web design.

hey, well keep up the work...you'll get better at design as time goes on too....i promise...i felt the same as you once. i would start by getting rid of the background altogether. keep learning css or start learning css....it'll help you with your design problems a ton and open up so many new possibilities. i would suggest making a side bar with your "forced links" as you called them, your links to your forum, song, games, etc... that'll help clear things up too.

hope this helps...happy coding! Very Happy

This site may help you a lot: http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html

site updated... and a big update
BLAK
I think you should create a website layout (or get someone to do it for you) and then slice the layout and code it, so it's proper website.
I was doing a recycling website for my mate and I have done something like this:



It may not be very good example, but I want to show you, what I am trying to tell you.

Good luck with your website...

Mechanical Engineering! Awesome! In my country, most CEOs are engineers, did you know that?

I love the design.

It's a tad simple but powerful and professional looking =)
SamiTheBerber
The site looks very nice Smile However the graphics are quite heavy... You could optimize them. Also the site has heavy code. Table-based layout, HTML4.01, etc. I suggest you to learn some CSS and use div's instead of tables. You should also use elements, which are in XHTML 1.0 Strict or in XHTML 1.1.
Zuex
I'm thinking you could make the website more cartoonish, like windows XP type of icons, and make the website more clean, white/grey/skyblue background rather than black. Your website is about helping to keep the enviroment clean, first clean your website Razz

EDIT: Check this, this is what i would be looking for in a recycle website.

yellow green and grey? - classic colour combination for bio-hazard - that could be confusing - also the url? means nothing.
