    this might sound really harsh, but you learn from mistakes, and you made a lot on this website. First of all you have almost no color scheme, it is just random colors that make everybody's eyes hurt. Also the logos I'm guessing were made in Windows Paint? You should try out Gimp, or Paint.Net, they are both free alternatives, and much better quality. Is there a reason for the dog background, because if it is a fake virus website, then a dog has absolutely nothing to do with it. Hope you can take constructive criticism, and improve your site!

    I agree with him. The site is a great idea BUT its got way too many things going on. Choose a colour scheme and stick to it... Maybe black & red. For some reason when i think of a virus i think Black & Red...
    Just an opinion.

    Well, its okay, nothing great nothing amazing, but the color is not shaded and what not. Not pleasant to the eye, nothing is fillet or rounded. If it is your first time, its cool.

    I have made a new logo with gimp.

    Is the background colors okay? What about the borders or navigation? Anything else?

    Those ads, like the one that pops us full screen as somebody opens your site, are really annoying. Excellent way to drive visitors away from your site. There are many ways to put ads on a site so that they are not irritating and fit in well with your website. Your banner and background is much better than what you originally had there.

    I have updated my ad codes. Here is the ad types on my site:


    I included:
    Code:
    Banner & Text Link
                        Text banner, Graphic Banner and Contextual Link Ads on CPM and CPC metric.
    
    
    
    Inline Text Link
                        Contextual Links Ads usually have better click ratio.   
                    
    
    Pop-under
                        high payout rate on CPV/CPM metric.                   
    I din NOT apply to:
    Code:
    
    
    Inter-Ad (Interstitial Ad)
                        extremely high payout rate on pay per view basis.    
    
                   
    
    MsgAd                        floating ad, similar to instant messenger alert/dialog box.
                      
    Is this okay? Shall i include more adtypes who is or is not listed here ???


    In adittion to this I have started to update the navigation (not finhished yet)

    Will soon begin to totally revise and update the index page (the expandable stats)

    Hello,

    I have finhised updating my site. Now the navigation bar (to the left) and the index page have another look.

    In adittion I have added a whos.amung.us button in the bottom ( is that smart or unsmart? Please tell me... )


    I have removed the inline ads and some other ads too...

    Tell me what you think about colors, logos, navigation bar, index page, info on site, design, borders, advertisments and other things!!!
