ok good suggestion … but it is too late … we registered for the website award
please comment for the website itself not the domain name becuase i think .tk is not bad its just a domain to be easy to write and to remember !!
This is the kind of comment you don’t want to hear, as navigation is usually an essential part of the site design.
There are 3 different navigations, and neither of them seem to take precedence (a.k.a. focus) over one another. This, in effect, makes understanding the page difficult, because it means there’s nothing on the page to start or focus at.
You could probably solve this by combining “about our team” and “main index” into the top menu bar as submenus that pop out.
why? its just a domain extension, you can view it just like the common domain extensions. Honestly i would just keep it, especially since you already have it registered.
Now for the site, it looks pretty good. the only real problems is see with it is the colors are all pretty close to each other so they don’t contrast. Its a little hard read because when you first look at it you don’t get a sence of content-navigation contrast. I suggest using darker colors for your different layout schemes.
Also there is a lot of div layout inconsistencies, like your intro splash page is aligned to the right and your banner on the main page is set to left. You probably don’t notice it because you have a smaller resolution then some of us, you wouldn’t notice this error on a 1024x768 resolution but i do on my 1680x1050. There are many of these type of inconsistencies through out the site. I would suggest setting all the css styles to something like…
the width would obviously be what ever the width for that div tag is, also the margin-left is just half the width but negative. This will set it to exactly center on the screen.
I also would suggest going more conventional with your navigation, you have 2 main navigation bars and they are a little hard to follow. I would suggest using either or, for this template might be best to just use the left navbar instead
Also it might be better to have your banner that’s on the main page be on the front splash page and then become static [ie not flash] on the main page, that way it wont replay on each page.
thank you alaa for ur replaying…
i just wanna say again… we are going to change the domain name to .org but we submitted the old domain in the firstawards.org
so how we can change it ? if we send a message to the adminstrator to this site … can he change it ?
please answer me
People always bring that up, and it was even debated once, but I really don’t think there are any specific rules for it. It’s sort of an unwritten rule, I guess. I know teams have won in the past without the italicization.
EDIT: No, you cannot change your URL that you submitted to FIRST Awards after you send it in. I don’t see what’s wrong with your current one, though, unless somebody’s school blocks it. Are you changing it to .org, or just adding it on with your current one?
Yes. I would believe so. The rules state that as long as the web site is accessible at the time of judging that it will be judged. A redirect from your original domain name to your new one does that. We did this about two years ago from our old domain name. Start telling everyone that it is .org now and use that domain on printed items. Since both domain names go to the same web site.
As for the redirect, your domain provider sometimes has that option to use it as a redirect. Or, you can use an htaccess file. There are many options. Google domain redirect and you should find one you are comfortable with.
