My first venture into Basic design was with Mikaeru, Which focus's on Strong Anime reviews, something...that is lacking in most review sites. The only issue im facing is, People comment on it looking more like a graphics design site & I actually had a few comment about the lack of Ad's being a bad thing...I dont know why. The site is currently at a stand still for 4 months. Because I have two ideas which im not sure which to continue on with. 1) A community site, A site for a club I could make for the city im in, OR stick with reviews, which...in due time larger sites... like a torrent site, bakabt, show interest in partnering if that succeeds.
For now I have a few Ideas to impliment...
1) Language options Japanese & English support
- I think this is a good idea, because for a longtime Mikaeru was a registered domain in japan... plus, its anime related.
2) Removal of the Tracker & Gallery
- No one uses these & the gallery has been offline so I dont see the issue here.
But more importantly is the loading time that bugs me, & the looks of the site, the Professionalism. Which I believe its lacking in.
Note: This was all done with Expression, so I cant get too fancy with it.
