Mako-chan's Sailor Moon Domain
- Direct Linked, huge pics. Many not stolen, but some are very questionable.
- Poor layouts
- Unoriginal Info, which makes it not worth the time with all the problems
Positives About The Page:
- Some parts look nice, even if the pics aren't actually their's.
Nominated by: Mara K.
Ok, at first I thought this might be an ok page...BUT!
This page's main.html has nice graphics. (Despite being
possibly stolen and all direct linked to somewhere else.) It, however,
sucks in 640 resolution and it doesn't work in 1024 res either.
To tell you the truth, it doesn't work well in 800! OY!
This is due to the usual problem that happens when you use little
side bars on your backgrounds. The text runs into the graphics on the
side where it becomes unreadable. The page makers need to set up
their tables a lot better to fix this problem. Use
table width="600" instead of 100% for use with these
Some transparent gifs or space tags will be needed to
help as well.
Also, the main.html works fine, but the index.html doesn't
work at all in Netscape.
Next, I looked at the graphics. Upon checking the page's source,
which I always do now,
I found not one, not two, but all of
the pics, including the background,
are direct linked from other sites!
I looked into it a little deeper and
found some are from "free the
images" sites which are fine to take from.
Some of the others are image
galleries which give out backrounds and various
other graphics. Those
are all fine too. However, you still shouldn't direct link them!
People can always take pics down, change their names, move their site,
etc. which leads to a page having a hundred broken pics!
Some of the pics may still be stolen. Mara actually nominated this
page for its manga image gallery. (http://members.tripod.com/~Rose_Dawsun/images.html)
You may reconize the image map that loads. This is stolen right off
the index on Sailor Grub's Image Gallery page!
(http://www.geocities.com//Tokyo/Temple/3613/) There is a credit to
Grub on her credits page, but no link to be found to that site.
A credit is not complete without a link! Plus, I doubt Grub gave
someone permission to rip off half her the index page!
As for the rest of the page, well, it's bogged down with huge
pics all over the place.
Loading, loading, loading, lalala
[Waits for info pages to load]
The info is the same old, unoriginal "doll box stats" accompanied by huge
direct linked pics, that take forever to load, with more poor layouts thrown in.
One thing that will help you right away. Don't have info on two
characters side by side on the same page. Have only one page
for each! Tripod gives out 11MB now, you have more than enough space
for the extra HTMLs!
Foot Note: I have since consulted with Grub and found out
that "Mako-chan" has been asked once already to remove the pics from her page. Seeing as they were direct linked, Grub went and changed the names of the files to remove them herself.
However, Mako-chan went back and learned the new names of the pics and stole them again!
This page grates all around. More stolen images then I can shake a stick
at. The information isn't any more than the usual stats that are laid out
in one large paragraph. The page had crashed my Netscape twice before I got
it to load using IE (which, thankfully, loads the page first and then the
images). What else can I say? This bites.
This is one of those annoying pages that sort of freezes on me because
it takes so darn long to load up. You think the problem would be solved
if everything wasn't linked from a geocities site? Maybe. There are too
many of them anyway, some of them are broken too. The manga
season summaries are full of large images and unreadable text, and
from the looks of it, copied from some other place too and modified.
The manga galleries? Want to know a secret? Not only does this
girl rip off Grub, she rips off of the Sailor Senshi's manga page too,
plus God knows how many other manga pages. There are about a
zillion pics on each gallery page as well, all full sized. Character pages-
blah. Bad, trashy info; too many pics, and a whole lot of crap. I didn't
bother sticking around after that because I don't have that much cache
Somewhat confusing layout, but yet again I'm not going to get into that!
Let's get to
the information! OK, these profiles are hard to read! Bad
backgrounds! I have to
highlight over them to make anything out of it.
Now that I can actually see the words it's the same old usual stats
but in one long paragraph with no breaks no punctuation and
sometimesnospaces like this sentence. Hard to read, ne? ;)
There are pics everywhere, direct linked, causing slow downloading.
Add the same old info you can find just about anywhere, but on in
much better layout. You get a page which is just about a complete
waste of time.
