I asked this once before, bud what do you think of my site?

I listened and implemented some of the sugestions given last time, and wanted a second opinion...

Thanks for your time...

Looks pretty good.  The only thing I'd say that *needs* to be changed is that you have a story on the website in a Word file (".doc" extension).  I know cross-platform support is increasing, but you can't risk alienating your viewers.  Give it its own html-type page or "print" the file to a PDF file (Google for print pdf or some similar phrase and pick a program--I use PrimoPDF).  I'd recommend a new page because amazingly enough, some people still don't have Acrobat reader installed!

Good job overall.

Thanks, I'll get onto converting those files as soon as I can (I've got to update soon anyway...)

Thanks for your input '<img'>

Opened good in both IE and Firefox.  Layout is pleasing to the eye and easy to use.  Have you considered moving your website to Furtopia rather than using freewebs?

I did concider it at one point, but I like the freewebs interface and the flexibility it offers.

I like the layout for sure.
Nice work, I haven't found any bugs.

Nice, though a little impersonal with the adverts and stuff.  A nice bit of artwork on the front page would help Furry it up a lot '<img'>

Clearly you've never used an FTP client.  It's like opening the website's folder in Explorer/Finder; you can literally drag stuff into and out of it, delete it with the Delete key, rename by clicking the filename, etc., etc. just as if it were on your computer.

I'm guessing Freewebs has its own online creation tool or something, in which case you need to check their instructions (I've only ever done stuff via FTP).

Much better '<img'>

Keep at it and try to learn how to make a proper web page - nobody start off knowing it all, but it you get the basics down you can open up a whole range of possibilities '<img'>
