    Hi,

    How do you think this site. Let me know yours comments or feedbacks for overall design, functionality and etc. :apple:

    The main concept "Valentine's Capsule is the place where we can all see the lovers and couples of the world and their messages to the ones they love.".

    On the whole, I like the design - it's certainly fitting for the subject matter.

    You only asked about the design factor and, to be honest, I'm really not qualified to give any more comments, but I have to say I'm not sure I get the overall concept of the site...

    I also have to say that the translation into English is not very good, for example: "It’s the place where memories bring back once again." Now, I usually don't mind this at all - I couldn't translate English into any other language, and I respect your attempt - but when I don't understand the concept of the site, I think the translation needs to be a bit more accurate.

    Like I said, you only asked about the design - and I, for one, like it :) I hope the site is a success for you.

    The “10830 capsules to surprise your beloved today” is a little hard to read.

    hi cape,

    Thanks for your comments and pointing out the concept of the site. I also agree with you about translation. I will think of an simple and easy understand translation that could bring out the concept of this site.

    You are also welcome to give other comments beside design. :p

    *The concept : Valentine's Capsule is the place where we can see all the lovers or couples around the world and what is their messages to their beloved.

    hi elppa,

    I think must be color issues made the “10830 capsules to surprise your beloved today” is a little hard to read. Maybe you can try this http://www.valentinescapsule.com/home/index.php to see if there any different with the http://www.valentinescapsule.com/

    The site needs an About page that explains better what the site is all about. On the Start tab there's a button to make a PayPal payment that says Pay Now, but doesn't explain what you'd be paying for and has the name Maybank2u, which sounds like a scam to me and I would never trust paying to a name like that. Your site lacks in trust.

    Also, as others have pointed out, if you want to be taken more serious, you'll need to get better translations to English, which will also increase trust with visitors.

    The Start tab has a bunch of tabs at the top that spell out valentine's capsule, but it's not clear what clicking on them will be for. You need to make the interactions with the site clear and transparent (not in the color sense).

    As well on the Start tab you have a navigation bar with links separated by the > character, which is much more common to use in breadcrumb navigation so you should find another way to visually separate items. Also the column and row numbers along the side of the "love capsules" is hardly readable. A better font would be advised.

    There's more I could talk about, but think I've said enough for now at least.

    A suggested way to phrase that concept:

    Valentine's Capsule is the place where we can all see the lovers and couples of the world and their messages to the ones they love.
