    Please review http://www.webmaster-sources.com. Please comment especially on load time and how much you like the design itself. None of the forms work, and the buttons "forums" and "resources" dont work either. Thank you for your time.

    ~~~This site is approved~~~

    The site loaded fast and the layout is your standard "webmaster resources" design. All I mean by that is your site has nothing to make it stick out from the 10's of thousand of other Webmaster sites out there.

    The doorway page is annoying. I would expect to see that on a personal site about someone's current game hobby but not on a professional site. If you really must have a doorway page like that have it automatically redirect instead of pausing like it does.

    Only thing really missing from your site is content. If your going to help other Webmasters you need more content. You can find premade content to get off the ground and fill it in later with your own.

    Hmm, it does automatically redirect. I am going to look into changing that to a .htaccess redirect tommorow...

    Well…

    I give you a 9.5 for having the guts to ask for a review of a competing site to this one.

    Anyway, I like the color combo, nice rollover effect in the navigation. You should also have a text navigation option at the bottom. There are still people who need that.

    Load time was about 30 seconds with a 45333 connection. Your redirect worked fine, but was a bit confusing to watch. Also, is this domain a test site, you do really have that domain name? I was confused by the jumpthru in the domain. I know what it is, just why. To be a professional site, you need a professional name.

    Other than that, it is a nice design. Oh you might consider centering the copyright info in the footer. It just makes my head tilt to the right.

    Style = 9
    Colors = 8
    Format = 8
    Overall = 8.5

    Take care

    Well...I own jumpthru.com. JumpThru is a combination of webdesign and web hsoting. Since right now a dedicated server is not an option there is no way to pay for hosting for webmaster-sources.com along with jumpthru.com. I was planning on having all the sites on the network just redirect like that into the jumpthru subdirectory. I figured it would give jumpthru some exposure. I would like to be able to host multiple domains, but for the time being I cant. Using a free domain host, such as hypermart.net not only makes me have to put banners on my pages, but also their servers are extremely slow and very unreliable. When I layed all my options out it came down to a reliable free domain hoster that just redirected to the real site. If anyone has any other suggestoins, I'd be glad to hear them.

    I liked the color scheme it was easy to look at, I'm not a big fan of image flips, but it still looks good though. I also like the ease of navigation, it wasn't difficult to understand and the website followed one pattern all the time, which was nice. Although when I went to: http://jumpthru.com/Webmaster-Source...n/d4.23.00.htm the image flips, and navbar were all out of whack.

    For me, the load time was near-instant (on a cable modem, mind you). The rollovers are nice, and the site seems easily navigable. Your domain is very similar to webmaster-resources, and, well, let's face it - they've got a lot more content than you can offer at this point. But, fight the good fight, and maybe you'll come out on top. Keep building your content, and, hopefully, visitors will keep showing up. Good luck!

    Hmm I hate to say this because I really like the design, but it seems like it's one of those pre made template designs. In other words, it just seems extremely cookie cutter like.
