    [​IMG] Ok, I need a little bit of help here. I need to do a write up evaluating two existing web pages for my web design part of my course.
    I need to look at a good one and a bad whose theme is something I know about and am interested in.

    I need to look at the following:

    The content of the site
    The clarity of of the context
    Use of colour, animations and pictures
    The advertising on the site.

    Is the info on the site relevant o what I am looking for
    Is it presented in an interesting way
    Is there links from page to page or is it all one long page?
    Does it run smoothly or take ages to load
    is it laid out well and how?

    Obviouly I thought do SP as the great site :D , the problem is this:

    I can't find a bad site that can even be remotely compared to Tal's :(
    Can anyone point me in the right direction? Might be a good idea to email me it, don't think it's very nice to have a load of web site posted here saying they're crap. After all, I did say how can any be compared to Tal's?

    Well, there's always Ironworks, SP has a great history of bagging out Ironworks as well :)
    I'm not sure of the URL or even how crap it is so I'll just leave it to you to figure out

    Well, design-wise there are some quirks with SP's layout, but nothing I wasn't aware of. (And a new design is currently in the works.)

    And advertising is such as I can get... In an ideal world it'd all be related, but it's never as easy as that.

    Anyway, I don't really know of any sites with good content but really bad design. Ironworks was only thrashed for their stealing content off SP, not bad design, so it doesn't really comply with his requirements.
