I also noticed that the mail you sent to email address does not have the username so if I forget my username, I do I retrieve it back


#4

The website allows people to sell online and be able to monitor what they are selling unlink classified ads websites that just allows you sell without any form of supervision…


#5

if only the graphics can be better!!!


#6

The website’s tagline is “get what you want. Sell what you don’t. Easily” If I read it correctly someone needs to change something. The problem is what part.

The graphics isn’t really the problem. It’s the layout. I understand how hard it can be to cram so much information in so little space. There just isn’t enough page real estate. All in all good job. There is a saying, if you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.

You need to work on the typography a bit.
Colour scheme is not smiling at all :frowning:
The right side bar is not consistent.
Not a good idea to make page request every 10 or so secs.

@promethus, the layout and its content has been edited, thanks for the review. chai but you harsh oo. @doctorfox, the right side bar has been changed into something more constant


#9

Was I harsh? I knew I would be harsh so I tried to tone it down. Obviously, my attempts failed. Sorry. I’m in no place to judge a site cos I don’t think I can do a better job than you. Anyway, I think the site looks better now.

I started web programming(with css, Javascript, php, Ajax and jQuery) about two weeks ago. I wrote Java programs on PC and mobile for a year and a half before deciding to go web. Can you give me some pointers on laying out divs on a page cos from my little experience, though absolutely positioned divs will give you what you want, they would render horribly if a computer with different size and resolution views the site?


#10

So what do you guys feel i can do to improve the site in terms of design?


#11

The graphics and the fonts is not really catchy please work on that
