NIKOLE, If it were you telling me "Hey Edgar, I think you should clean up your code" as a friend and fellow SUNNIE... I would, listen to you out of respect. But when it`s a new Booty Like twilight, thinking they are big shots or that they posses the key to all of our problems... I don`t want to hear them... Especially with that tone... as if their poop smells like roses...
See there are two things that he/she needs to learn around here "Don`t think you are the best" Im pretty sure we are over 100 developers here at SUN and never have I encountered a person like twilight... So for the record, Twilight get off your high horse... Learn from the rest of us here at SUN... and be courteous.. as for Cookiemonster.. Well ... He`s been here for awhile...
It`s pretty obvious you can`t handle criticism, what did you expect me to say? "Oh, your site is wonderful, I should hire you for all my future projects". No! You`re a terrible web developer, and it`s pretty sad that a "newbie" can point this out.
In your very first post you hyped it up bragging about your amazing skills of coding a custom cart (which you didn`t). To me it`s pretty obvious it`s more of a sales pitch and you`re looking for an undeserving pat on the back, rather than any real feedback.
Despite the fact that the site is poorly coded, or uses tables, it`s your professionalism on this forum and towards the client that makes you a joke of a business owner.
Remember, I do not correct any grammar, or typos... The customer gives me his files and I cut and paste it to the page. I am assuming he did all the corrections.
Your clients must be THRILLED about working with you! You must really stand behind your quality of work! Here`s a suggestions: either stop working for peanuts and charge what it`s worth to build a website the right way - content and all, or admit you`re an amateur and the only projects you can get are from friends and teenagers that hang out at car shows and barely have enough cash to scrape together for a website. Maybe this should set off some alarms? Did It ever occur to you that your quality of work is limiting you to friends and those that are "worried to spend money on a REAL designer?"
Act your age Edgar, you`re a grown man. [At least I think, I can`t tell your gender form your photo- maybe you should change it] You should be able to take criticism from a so called "newbie". And if because I`m a newbie and my opinion holds no weight, then you should be able to easily dispute me rather than posting your pointless rambling rebuttals referring to fecal matter and horses.
What difference does it make if I`m new to the forums or not? You`ve been here longer than me and you`re still clueless about web design. Why are your responses more valid than mine or any other newbie who clearly has more knowledge about web design and development than you? I`m not saying I`m the best, or I know it all -you said that, but I`m not too far off from the truth if veterans on this board are agreeing with me.
I`ve tried offering you some sound advice, in fact, all of us here have, but you don`t want to hear it. Your responses have a bitter ring of defeat and an unwillingness to listen. But there`s hope! There`s a community college in your area that offers some basic HTML courses, you should consider signing up! Good luck with future projects - you`re going to need all the help you can get working for $600 a site.
