Don't mean to sound rude, but it takes a lot more than creating a design layout in a micro$oft program like word or frontpage to create a successful social networking site. In terms of design:
- The psychology of color is very important in web design. In other words, the emotions that the colors and the layout of your site invokes on an user determines whether or not they come back. The essence that the brown, pale orange and pale aqua colors give off is not very inviting or friendly.
- Typography is also very important, perhaps the most important part of any design. The text on your site looks extremely generic, giving off a very cheap look.
- Elements are not styled properly, namely the form inputs. It seems you just went with the defaults provided to you, with the exception of the brown color on the buttons.
- Visual hierarchy is messed up and in some cases, does not abide by common web standards. For instance, the copyright info is on the top left corner when it usually goes on the footer. The slogan of the site is not distinguishable from other text on the page. Links at the bottom of the page are not properly aligned.
- Why are there two links for user logins? You don't need the celebrity sign in. It introduces redundancy and would prove to be a pain to modify later on. In other words, you would be modifying code on two separate places instead of one.
In terms of code:
- Pop-up windows are not in vogue anymore. There are more elegant ways of displaying those forms to the user. I suggest you look into jQuery.
- I would recommend you stay away from site generators like the one you used. Twitter and Facebook didn't build their empires using one. If you want to dream big and carry it though with your work, you shouldn't either.
- I didn't attempt to test out your input forms; they're way too long.
Finally, UX (User Experience) and usability:
- Reasons for signing up are not clear. Also, I don't know what kind of interactions go on inside your site since I have to create an account to start using it. There are no previews anywhere.
- User forms for registering are way too long. I shouldn't need to fill out all that personal information just to join. Twitter only needs my email and a password. Plus, the design of your site doesn't inspire much confidence from a security perspective.
- It's very simple to lie on the "celebrity" signon and possibly go unnoticed.
- It's also very simple to lie on the "Forgot Password" link. One could brute-force their way through it and retrieve user passwords.
I could say more, but this review is already long enough. I'm not someone to discourage other from following their vision, but your idea has pretty much been done already by the likes of Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. I think you have a better chance of having something happen if you come up with a mashup of those 3 sites with some of the concepts of your jobslacker site, provided you have a solid design and strong development behind it. Best of luck!
