I really like my flossing website, it just plain silly, but looks good too. Everyone I've talked to loves it. Check out the Floscars in particular. We're in the process of updating the site, and I'll most likely move it over to a flash GUI, a little slicker in terms of presentation, but the overall design will stay close to what it is now.

The only site that I am proud of is my Colin Rose site (http://www.colinrose.net) but it still needs alot of work.

Try out my portfolio (I really need to sort out my site :)) http://www.brooklineuk.com/portfolio.html

BTW Duke, your flossing site rocks :)!

When I set out to design a site for somebody else I find it really easy to come up with design idea, when ever I have tried to come up with a design for myself I have come up with awesome designs but I have never done anything with them, mostly because I can't be bothered :) When Homepage and mac.com came about I used this to create myself a site that I didn't have to bother with design it can be found at http://homepage.mac.com/guywickenden/

Let me know what you think :)

well, i've never made a website. but one that i really like is Kalibur 10000 (http://www.k10k.com)
they've been down for a while, making a few changes. i just checked them the other day, and they were back up!!:D
other sites i really like are deviant art.com (http://www.deviantart.com)
and
customize.org (http://www.customize.org)
i like them all because they are updated just about daily. i can't stand a site that just sits there, really annoys me. i also like deviant art and customize.org because they have some really good wallpapers.:D there are heaps of other sites i visit every day or two, but i won't go on.:p

heh... im thirteen

im workin on a new site now (since i first created the thread)... its not much yet.. nad its really laggy since i host it by myslef for now off my pc -- also, my pc is sometimes off so...

but here it is... http://ishkabibble.dyndns.biz/dream

basically it doesnt have too much of a purpose so far.. im gonna teach myslef php and sql while making the logins and stuff... i think im gonna make it into a web photo service or sumthin.. for my friends... i really have no really good ideas yet.

i almost completely hand coded it (well, basically i did) and then went to dream to adjust colors cause they have built in color charts and stuff

Not a bad start, you might want to see how the imagery comes out as .jpgs. Since they are busy enough and have quite a few colors, they might end up looking a lot better and not have any rasterization ( on the atoms). Play around in photoshop to get the best results, and you might find that the files size will be much smaller.

Keep up the good work.
