er I dont know how wise it was to post it right now... if it does not work it will be back on at 1:30 PM EST. My host is moving to a new datacenter and there is a little down time.

It works for me... but the design seems very plain/basic. You need to design it abit more.

no problems here...
Since you are linking to external resources, probably you should consider opening them in a separate window so that you don't loose the visitor. And yes, some more decoration won't be out of place :)

The site ic currently down for me

Was wondering why your signature link didn't work.

10-31-2004, 03:19 AM
Won't load for me :(

10-31-2004, 04:10 AM
Down for me too.

10-31-2004, 05:18 AM
yeah... it should be back up by 1:30 PM EST.

10-31-2004, 05:22 AM
all right... i will add some little graphics (but not that many). And make the links open in another window. thanks

10-31-2004, 12:29 PM
it looks my host has run into some unexpected technical difficulties. I wonder when everything will be back to normal. :(

Graphically pretty simple, but effective from an information architecture point of view thats for sure - you can find what you want pretty quickly.

A little bit more colour might help make it aesthetically pleasing, but a great first site (my first site was sooo bad!)

11-01-2004, 05:33 AM
I wouldnt necessarily say you need many graphics, just a bit more colour, like a coloured bar at the top and bottom, for the title and footer, and maybe a contrasting colour bar for the menu.

11-01-2004, 01:33 PM
i dont know about the color... i like it, but public opinion is the opinion that matters. Perhaps I will.

Thanks for the compliment paulfitz... that was what I was I trying to do. Make it easy to find free ASP scripts.

Question: Doesn't Google like bland sites?

11-01-2004, 01:46 PM
Google has no idea what your site looks like. Could be black and white, or completely tie-dyed... Shouldnt make a difference to the SERPs.

All looks good though as a website. Should the Copyright at the bottom have a capital 'C' though? It looks kinda weird...

Go to http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=219 and make a new thread offering $50 for making a logo for the site.

Add a rating system.

Add more colour.

Use PHP instead of ASP.

11-01-2004, 01:58 PM
php instead of ASP? I would except its ASPscripts.net

11-01-2004, 02:00 PM
I meant for your coding. PHP is faster than ASP for some reason, and also easier to use mod_rewrite on.

11-01-2004, 02:06 PM
oh. I may use php for my other sites. But for an ASP site it seems sorta hypocritical. You know what i mean.

11-03-2004, 01:55 PM
i got listed in dmoz http://www.dmoz.org/Computers/Programming/Internet/ASP/Applications/Collections/
YEAH! :)

11-03-2004, 03:14 PM
Thats cool, how long did it take?

11-03-2004, 03:17 PM
it only took 2 days!

11-04-2004, 11:57 PM
