    What this site does feature is a lot of great content!

    It is good to have content but the homepage needs to be shortened a little so it is easier for visitors to navigate.

    Great Website! :)

    Being the owner of a role play site, I need to be able to scan the member’s profiles quickly to add them as fast as possible. Thats a little hard when every I switch to the ‘list view’ on the members page, I get an add for random products. What’s going on?

    Thank you webs for adding this site. It’s a fantastic reminder of what confusion and confinement is all about. I’m sure the web master is proud and – he should be! after all building a website is not as easy as people tend to think it is, even if your using Webs!
    Design and audience attention is the hardest thing in the word to win over wether your using Webs, WordPress, Joomula or even Micrsoft.
    I hope the Developer of this site listens and learns from you (Webs) as his VERY lucky to be featured here even if it’s under the other alternatives? Iv’e been trying to get all of my hmmm i think around 17 sites featured now for 5years! Thanks webs for an interesting issue.
