Hi, just to say that ok, so people who haven´t got an english website has less oportunities to win the contest, well I tried to translate my webpage to english and I have seen that the points you guys have given me is far too low, despite my web page design is fully created by me, including scripting issues (which the contest said it was going to be taken in mind), I think that the rules are a bunch of shit because I have no score what so ever in my page. And other contestant (I am not going to mention the ones they are) that has no idea in building websites have much better score than I have (And when I mean they don´t have any idea, I refer to their design, which are chosen from tipical templates, that they don´t have any scripting at all a part from HTML and the scripting that comes with the template, photos and stuff are all over the place without any order, contents are poor, etc.) I know that my website is not finished (that is why the forum is not running yet), but, I think you could have given me a better score than lots of ones.

Well, I know I am not going to use this server anymore. It is quite disappointing. I give it a score of 1

I am sorry you feel that way. Like in any other contest, there are disappointed, there are winners and there are those who lose. The whole idea of the contest was to have some fun sharing our work (well your work, I didn't entr the contest) and seeing what others have to show.

Now when I am reading your comment I am starting to think that we failed - this is no fun - no fun for you obviously and trust me, it is no fun for me - reading your negative comment after working hard to get things organized is more than disappointing to me... I just hope that there are others who think otherwise.

With the contest, instead of it being out of 5 it should be out of 10. My site i made in frontpage took me about 1hour and it got a score of 1.4 Reelshow's got 1.6 and his site is heaps better then mine. (well apart from the language) Reelshow Obversly put a lot more effort in then I did on my Airoma site.

My reallyfunny only got 1.8 on its ranking.

I know the design might be a bit dodgy, but the navigation; whats wrong with that. Its easy, select your catorgry and go from there.

Want about the content. Theres jokes and pictures, and funny stuff. Doesn't anybody laugh here.

The domain name. Well i entered this contest to get a domain name, and the coding, what part do you mark. The fact thats its made in HTML or its php.

Popularity; Doesnt it take 6 months for your site to show in google. My sites hasnt been out that long. I forgot to put in the META TAGS.

So overall, Can i get a rank of what score i got for each criteria.

Is there going to be another contest. Im redisgning my site to make it look better.

I appreciate your comment, I know this is just for fun and that you guys don't intend to dissapoint anybody, but in future, please take in mind objectively (even if the page is in another language), the rules that are mentioned in the contest (design, scripting, contents, etc).

I knew that my page wasn't going to be between the top 10 of the list, mainly because it is not completed (needs more contents and staff), but I espected better scoring because of the ammount of effort and time spended on the page. It is a page that touches big issues as film, animation and photography, and building it all by myself is very tedious, taking in mind the number of pages that it envolves (all with original designs). Anyway, if you could mention briefly what kind of errors do you see in my page, I would be gratefull.

Maybe next time we will get the chance to be more objective and better prepared - I mean the jury. It isn't like all of us are web designers or programmers, as I said before - this contest was made for fun.

But I see our mistake now, next time will put more effort and try being more objective. Sorry guys that we disappointed some of you, maybe next time we'll do better.

Yeah, I kind of agree that this contest wasn't the funnest. Some people didn't get as high as they should and some got higher than they should. I know that I was a bit dissapointed because I had made the site completely from scratch and spent a couple of months on it. Now I know it was my first site and that I'm no good at making sites but I had thought it would have gotten more in the two's range. But, this was a learning experience and hopefully sometime soon there'll be another contest where everybody has a better understanding of what's going on!

I think the contest was great, I wasn't expecting to get in the Top 10, and I didn't :)

I was a bit annoyed until I realised that all the sites had been graded, and I'm quite happy with what mine got, and if there's another competition in the future mine will have improved by then - although one judge gave me a 1, I don't think that's fair
