The Sailor Moon Zone!
- Over 60% of the site does not work.
- Direct linking of files.
- Overly large amounts of sloppiness.

Yeeow, a status bar scroller, and one whopper of a background colour
transition script. I feel like I just entered an acid disco! (Shake
your booty!) Background colour scripts are just pointless, and status
bar scrollers aren't much better.
Getting back to the message box for a second. It was nice of the owner
if you need to warn someone about something on your page, chances are
you're doing something unnecessary. If the background script was
dropped, there would be no need of the message box. Already you can be
The rest of the layout isn't that great either. The frameset is really
messed up in both browsers. The problem is, the site owner used
percentages in the frame sizes where you need to use pixle sizes...
Although, this does allow you to have some fun decapitating ChibiChibi
by changing the height of your browser window.
Just about every pic is broken for some reason. They aren't direct
linked. I can only guess they were never uploaded. Actually a lot
of the page links are busted too.
Checking out the galleries that do work... Hmmm, why did my floppy
drive just spin? Ahwwha! The picture links are pointing to my A
drive! That explains why the other pics don't work either. Those
that don't point to the A drive point to a "My Pictures" directory
that sits on somebody's computer somewhere out there.
Out of the info on the site, there's only the Sailor Jupiter Section
and a a section called "SM Story", which looks at the SMR season.
Info has some minor spelling mistakes, and a bit of Dic/original
mixing, but is generally okay.
The only other SM related content are The ROMs on the game page.
Unfortunately, just like every page I've seen with ROMs lately, they
are all stolen through direct-links to KatC's page. Isn't it sad
when you realize the only thing that works on this site has been
The one piece of advice I always give anyone creating a site for the
first time is: "test, test and test again". Not just offline, but
online as well. This site was obviously pieced together offline,
uploaded, and never ever properly tested. That lack of testing leaves
us with a disappointing page that's a total waste of time.
Sorry for the delay in posting this review... it took me some time to recuperate from
status bar one are there only for the sake of it: they serve no purpose and the site would be
better off without them. Same goes for the frames, however I did like Cere's
suggestion, make a game out of decapitating ChibiChibi over and over again.
Of course, all the broken pics don't help either. Oh well, let's see what's inside.
Villains section: nothing. nada. zippo.
Inners: broken pics and mostly broken links
Outers: pretty much the same and the few links that work only lead to pages with
more broken links.
Starlights: same again.
It really seems someone tried to make something impressive and cut way too many corners,
resulting in a complete waste of time.
needs Pokemon for epileptic seizures when you have this
for you? Warning: Do not view this page in a darkened room
with your face smushed against the screen. Please.
Anyway, first thing I notice is that the frames are done poorly so
that poor ChibiChibi's body is dismembered. On the front page it
says "Inners= Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Mask, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars,
Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus. Outers= Sailor Uranus, Sailor
Neptune, Sailor Pluto, Sailor Saturn, Sailor Chibi Moon.
Starlights= Sailor Starhealer, Sailor Starmaker, Sailor Starfighter
and Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon!" Again, we have those lovely "Chibimoon
is an Outer and ChibiChibi is a Starlight" thing. Oh, did I mention
On the "Inner Scouts" page, Moon, Mercury, and Mars' pages don't work;
none of the graphics work on any of the pages; Venus's page only has
a "Gallery" where none of the pics work; Jupiter's profile page works
(not the pictures), and the info's a mixture of the dub, the original,
and badly named attacks; and Tuxedo Kamen's page has seriously
mislinked pictures to your A and harddrive, which freaked me out at
first when my A drive started sputtering and making weird noises. And
unfortunately I couldn't tell this was going to happen from the links
due to that demented java scrolling message. Uranus, Neptune, and
Pluto have similar problems to Tuxedo Kamen's page; Saturn's page
doesn't link to your A drive. The Outer Scouts are "Alex, Michelle,
and Christine" and use "Planet Star Power". The "SailorStars" pages
only have Maker and Chibimoon's pages linked, and Maker's has broken
links. ChibiChibi, Chibimoon, and the Group Gallery pages don't load
up in Netscape, and in IE they give you an error. The ROMs page rips
off and direct-links to KatC's homepage and files. Out of curiosity,
I looked at the Pokemon, AMG, and Powerpuff Girls pages. All have
scrolly text and broken images and say "under construction". The
Powerpuff page of course spawns frames within frames. The SM story
page seems to be alright since it seems to be based on the original
and not the dub, while using scouts and the scout names.
I could turn it off, but alas, it took me back to homebase.
Well, anyways, since I shall more or less reiterate what everyone else said --
Another annoyance was the
whole "Sailor Stars" thing, they're not "Sailor Stars" they're "Starlights."
Oh, and Chibimoon is not an Outer and Chibichibi is not a Starlight.
of starting to worry this page is going to crash my browser actually, since it seems to be
