Sep.5.2013 (yes, still on hiatus)
Well, that didn't go quite how I intended. I'm coming back soon, though. Seriously this time.

July.1.2013
First of all, forgetting to change the date on the update and not knowing when it was? Great... not. Oops. Second of all, I just wanted to pop in and mention that DP came off its first revamp 6 months ago today, woo! Third of all, I wanted to apologize for how embarrassingly slow I have been in completing One's review. I'm sorry, Abigail! Fourth of all, the happiest piece of news I have today... DP will reopen on July 29th, the 9-month anniversary of our original opening day! Check back then for the revamped and off-hiatus (for more than a month this time) Deeppink!

???.2013
Hehe, quick update. Just wanted to mention that I'm not sure when I'm coming back. It might be within a few weeks, but I may wait until the summer.

Maybe not. Sorry, everyone.
Sooo... can't believe I'm doing this again, but DP is going on a little hiatus. I plan on being back early April or possibly sooner. I need to get DP back on its feet and I plan on doing everything necessary once I have more time. I'm also requesting a layout from Seasonal, so DP may, if I get accepted, have a new layout when we come back!
BOTM results will be posted sometime this week.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I'll be able to do my big update tomorrow, as I've been feeling a bit under the weather yesterday and today. D: Sorry! Expect the update sometime this month.

Feb.12.2013
Oops, another period of inactivity. Sorry, everybody! A full update is coming on Saturday. Competitions will end and start, reviews will be finished, and there might be a neat new surprise!

Feb.7.2013
Er, sorry for the lack of updates lately! D: I'm going to try and be more active. So, I'm promising a full update on Saturday. Competitions finished and started, review done, and possibly either a new extra or new rubrics!

Rubrics

Fuchsia (Classic) // This is the Classic rubric. Score is out of 100 points.



Rose (Pro/Con) // This is the Pro/Con rubric. You will receive a letter grade.




 

SITE NAME
Fuschia (Basic)
Score: x/100

First Impression: x/15

What was my first thought when I arrived at your site? Was it inviting and friendly, or so blindingly bright orange with hot pink text that I can't see anything? (Or anything else blinding. Bright orange with hot pink text is just an example.) Would I want to stay if I had a choice? (Since I'm reviewing you, I have to stay and finish my review.)

Layout: x/20

Is your layout easy to navigate around? Can I find everything? Do all the links work? Did you add border=0 to your linked images, or are there link borders? (I don't deduct anything for link borders on mapped images. Safari seemingly adds these no matter what.)

Content Quantity: x/15

Do you have a reasonable amount of content for your site's age?

Content Quality: x/20

Is your content high quality? Would I use your content? Would I request from you?

Grammar/Spelling: x/5

dide U typ ur mssg lyk THS? Ch@speek iz KNOT gude. neethur iz bad speeling. GRAMMER and captilIZAtion shud B ackerett 2. That is how not to talk on your site. Here's what those four underlined sentences said, in case you couldn't figure it out: Did you type your message like this? Chatspeak is not good. Neither is bad spelling. Grammar and capitalization should be accurate too. Do those two paragraphs look anything alike? No! Some of that first paragraph isn't even real chatspeak - I made it up so I could be sure I really got my point across. Did you mix up "they're," "there," and "their?" Any other similar mistakes? Both British and English spellings are acceptable - I will not dock you points for using one or the other. I will also not remove points for just one or two minor errors - only major or/and recurring errors. I will point out all mistakes, though, so you can fix them.

Professionalism: x/5

Do you write in a professional manner? You don't have to write like a college English professor, but don't WRIET liek DIS. Also, don't overuse bold, italic, and other text styles. This is an example of overusing them. Italic, bold and other text styles are for emphasizing words. That overstyled sentence was an example of far too much. Also, don't WRITE IN ALL CAPS, BECAUSE THAT IS INTERPRETED AS YELLING. however, do capitalize the first letters of sentences and of proper nouns like acara, neopets, and neopian times. also capitalize names, such as birdie, lucy, bob, and rosie. site names should be capitalized as well. (That whole section on what to capitalize the first letter of had all lowercase letters to help get my point across. That section is not correctly capitalized!) I am not as strict with this on your updates as on the rest of your page.

Organization/Convenience: x/5

Is everything easy to find? Do you have everything in the right place? Visitors will probably leave if you have your sitely section under "Request," your rules under "Updates," and your welcome page and link back buttons under "Pickup," for example. Are your textareas properly sized? Textareas should be the same width as what they're below.

Sitely: x/10

Do you have high quality link back buttons, and a few for people to choose from? You don't need 20, but it's a good idea to have 3-4. If you have any that are low quality, I will tell you which ones and why. If you are a button request site, the buttons should all be made by you. Do your affiliates need sweeping? Your listers? Sites close and go inactive all the time, so it's a good idea to check regularly. I will check them for you and tell you which ones are closed or inactive. Inactiveness is not really a problem for listers, unless it's so inactive most directories don't list it anymore (thus making it hard to find and not bringing any visitors to your site). It's the same if a lister is on indefinite hiatus or closed with content still available. However, affies should be removed if they are inactive (haven't been updated in about a month or more) or closed, even with content still available, unless they are the type of site (guides, tutorials, etc.) that do not need regular updating. I will not penalize you for only having a small number of affies, though! However, you should at least be listed at the bigger directories: The Shelf, Smiley Central, Lacuna, and Plethora. It's a good idea to get listed at some smaller directories too, but the larger ones receive more traffic, so those are the most important ones to get listed at.

Rules

Only request when requests are open.
After requesting a review, you have to wait 6 weeks to request another. When I finish your review, I'll let you know when you'll be eligible to request a re-review. If you scored 95/100 or higher, than please don't request a re-review - you really don't need one if you scored that high.
I will not review about me pages, offsite pages, pet about me pages, Twilight pages, wishlists, guilds, applications, or pages with stolen content.
Link back before, during, and after you receive my review. If you wish, you may remove my button once you revamp or change your layout. Put violet in your form somewhere.
Please don't make any major changes to your site while I'm reviewing it! General content updates are fine, of course. But don't change your layout, completely overhaul your site, etc.
I will respond to your request as soon as I receive it, and notify you again when your review is finished. I will let you know if you did not read the rules. If you didn't read the rules, you have to wait at least two weeks before requesting again.
Only request a review for one site at a time, to give everyone a chance to have their site reviewed. After requesting a review for one of your sites, you must wait at least one week before you request another review for any of your sites. When I finish your review, I'll let you know when you can request a review for another one of your sites.
If your site closes while you are on my waiting list, please let me know.

Asura
Fuchsia (Basic)
Score: x/100

First Impression: 15/15

You have a nice banner. The site name is readable easily and the color scheme is nice. And the layout looks great. The colors match well and everything is readable.

Layout: 20/20

Your layout is beautiful! The colors match wonderfully, and the site name is readable and stands out. It fits nicely on my screen, too, although it'd be a good idea to crop the right side about by 150px, because it has a section of about 200px that matches the background and this could cause unnecessary side scrolling. Also, I would recommend making it slightly shorter, perhaps around 550-600px, to ensure it fits on all screens easily.

Content Quantity: 15/15

You have 48 sites listed, which is a good amount for this type of site. The one issue I see is that I counted and you have 48 sites listed, yet you say you have 49 listed. This needs to be fixed. Other than that, good job!

Content Quality: 20/20

The content you have is high quality. The idea is great and original, and I don't see any problems with the content. Well done!

Grammar/Spelling: 4/5

This site was established early in May, 2012, and is here to serve a purpose to both the visitor and the site owner.
This sentence on your homepage should be:
This site was established early in May 2012, and is here to serve a purpose to both the visitor and the site owner.

If you are a site owner, i'd highly recommend getting your site listed here.
This sentence in your ranking description of Lacuna should be:
If you are a site owner, I'd highly recommend getting your site listed here.

There isn't anything else I need to say about Echelon, expect that it'd be a very good idea to bookmark this site, and check back to it every now and again.
This sentence in your ranking description of Echelon should be:
There isn't anything else I need to say about Echelon, except that it'd be a very good idea to bookmark this site, and check back to it every now and again.

You can even click on an invent for more information about it. Weapon has done a brilliant job with this site, and I hope he continues to keep it up for all us Neopians to use.
These sentences in your ranking description of TEC should be:
You can even click on an event for more information about it. Weapon has done a brilliant job with this site, and I hope she continues to keep it up for all us Neopians to use.

Shingie is a fabulous template maker and each layout she makes for you to use obviously had a lot of effort stitched into the coding.
This sentence in TKM's ranking description should be:
Shingie is a fabulous template maker, and each layout she makes for you to use obviously has a lot of effort stitched into the coding.

That's all. You only have a few minor errors. Good job!

Professionalism: 5/5

In your intro, you have "list, rate, and comment" italicized. I would recommend not italicizing the word "and", but this is optional.

Organization/Convenience: 5/5

Everything is well organized and convenient. With two organization methods, it's easy to find the site you're looking for.

Sitely: 10/10

I see nothing wrong. All your links are correct and your buttons are high quality. Good job!

Recommended? Yes

Revisit? Yes


Total Score: 99/100


Asura is a great site for the community! I highly recommend getting your site listed there.
