Thanks again. U guys must het frustrated by ppl like me.

God no. I like people like you because you're open to feedback and interested in learning. It's those that say "give me feedback" then argue with you about every last point who I get frustrated by.

Yeah, that's the best place to start. Then tidy up your CSS (ie put them all into one CSS file and include that in your HTML head). Then, if you're still having issues, it's to do with your CSS or the fonts you've chosen. In either case, I'd probably take that opportunity to pick a prettier font as you'll not only (hopefully) fix your rendering issue, but you'll make the overall site feel more unique and polished eg it might be work looking at a more "squared-off" typeface since it's a gaming website, say something a bit like how Pacific Rim's site look (http://www.pacificrim-movie.net/). Or if you want something more plain, then use OpenSans (which is now wordpresses default: http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2012/10/09/open-sans-how-do-we-love-thee-let-us-count-the-ways/). In my personal opinion, picking a font can be as important to a site as the colour scheme

oh, one last thing, center justified text is generally regarded as a no-no for blocks of text as it's generally harder to read:


It's now up to Blast Off Bob to search the galaxy to find and rebuild his rocket ship so he can return home. During his adventures Blast Off Bob must rescue Mr Toggles and his friends on each planet. Along the way Blast Off Bob must avoid the many nasties such as space yetis, jungle beasts, aliens, lava mosters and much more.....Do you have the skill to rescue Mr Toggles and his friends and help Blast Off Bob defeat Evil Clive? Only then can you help Blast Off Bob find his missing rocket ship so he can return home.

However this is design etiquette rather than a fault, so the layout is entirely up to you guys. smile.gif But if it was me, personally, I wouldn't center blocks of text, just sentences that are only a couple of lines deep.

No offense intended, but you're (seemingly) charging this person for a site that you can't really deliver with the knowledge you have. I have no problem helping you learn about web development, but I'm not going to do that on your client's dime and time.

 

I recommend you go somewhere like udacity and take a couple of their free courses to learn a little about how to get started. Start with these two in this order.

https://www.udacity.com/course/cs101

https://www.udacity.com/course/cs253

 

By the time you finish with the second course, you'll finally understand the basics of what a website needs and what all you should be learning.

I'm not convinced this is paid for work; it appears to me to be more a mutual favour for a friend (friend gets a website, the OP gets some development experience).

However your free course advice is still a good one

Check the bottom of the site. It says designed by KR web designs and links to this site

http://www.krwebdesign.co.uk/

which shows this and other sites as works done/in progress and advertises his pricing indicating that there is probably some money changing hands (no matter the amount, professional integrity is a huge thing in my book)

Yeah, I'm already aware of that (as you said, it's not exactly hidden). But they're all small independent people as well - so could well be favours for friends and family.

To be honest this has been happening as long as computers have been around. What with Microsoft selling OSs (BASIC and DOS) to organisations when they don't even have an operating system developed and all the plagiarism that happens these days with both open source code ending up in proprietary projects and websites copying and pasting from each other; well I'm inclined to forgive the OP because at least he's interesting in learning to code.

Plus it's pretty obvious of the quality of his work since he's put his catalogue up to view (I mean, we both found the link). So there's nothing underhanded as he's clearly not pretending to be an experienced web developer. With the greatest of respect to his work, anyone who wants anything more professional will see those sites and move on.

Thank you for responses.
As you can see from my work I have a limited knowledge of webdesign.
I am however learning more and want to learn how to make better adjustments to the sites.
Yes I have done the odd site and taken payment. But as you can see my prices are very low and I do state to the potential client I am limited experience and provide basic site. But I have mainly done work for friends so far.

I really appreciate your feedback though and I will have a look at those courses soon.
