Suggestions needed.

I'm currently making a website for the little lady and I need you guys to tell me what you like about a site.

Click this for the link and I'd be really grateful if you'd take the time to offer some suggestions. I really wanna keep it minimal because I know if I go to a site I don't wanna be bombarded with info or options. People won't go there for anything other than seeing what it's all about after googling mini goats or seeing a link somewhere.

Cheers in advance.


  1. The youtube clip opens on my computer with a scene that is perhaps not ideal! Looks like two goats are going at it - before one hits play that is. I'll email you Dad's wine site tomorrow - it seems to work pretty well.

    Definitely a map on how to get there from Bris, the Coast and Ippy - and some scenic shots

  2. 1. I would take all of the location information in the second para and move all of to the 'contact' page.

    2. Move the intro up.

    3. I would add a mini goat FAQs page.

    4. I would edit the 4th para to include just the sentence "If you feel this site is lacking anything we encourage you to email us with your suggestions for improvement."

    5. I'm with Lerm ... looks like goatse in the freeze frame.

    6. The graphic at the top? Why not use a pic of some mini goats or a something? Unless mini goats are all Emo or something. How about some color?

    7 I might also include some bio info on the intro page ... how long have you been doing this; awards won; etc.

    Those are the 30 second review comments...


  3. Sweet, thankyou.

    I can change the still at Youtube's end. So no drama. The website will be great Lerm.

    Rhino ~ 1 - 5. Makes sense, I'll do that, cheers. 6, The horse is the Emo one. lol Yeah, we're working on a banner. That was just the default one. 7, yep cool, cheers.

    Thanks again.

  4. I was going to suggest zombie goat porn without even looking at the site, but having read Lerm's comment it sounds like you already have that.

    I will have a look and get back to you.

  5. Ok:

    1. Build actually button shapes around the buttons on the left.

    2. Think carefully about colour to suit the subject. I am thinking warm earthy tones and not too much colour variety as it makes the page look too busy.

    3. Photo gallery to complement the videos.

    4. As with Rhino's point 7 also be sure to include details of any association you are part of and maybe mention where the name comes from if it is a nice story.

    5. Have a testimonials page from previous customers.

    You are on the track with keeping it simple, overcrowding a website is a problem I see regularly in the car industry.

  6. Nice one, cheers Naut.

  7. Check out the layout. It's all grassy and shit.

    Photo gallery is on its way. I'm at the point of throwing something at the missus to get to come up with some.

    I bought her a domain. That's love.

    Try to keep all of the welcome text on one page so that you don't need to scroll down.

    Try a slightly smaller font, reduce the actual number of words or move your wifes (?) photo to above the links.

    Just my 2 cents worth.

  9. Keep the intro short and do an 'about minigoats' as a side button.

    It's quite amazing as I always thought they used a ray gun or something similar to get them to that size....

  10. Thanks Gaz. I tried putting the photo on the right but it just won't go. The widget won't take. IT's pissing me off. lol.

    Chaz, thanks mate. I'll see what I can do.

  11. "I bought her a domain. That's love."

    Not if the domain is iwishyouweredead.com.au

  12. Looks better already - I flicked the old boy's website through

  13. Saw that, thanks mate, helped heaps.

  14. I'm no good at this stuff but I do have a tale about a tiny little goat.
    A girl I once knew got into some strife at home and was given the rounds of the kitchen by her mum for being stupid. Her dad comes home at the end of this with a baby goat and asks the girl what the goat should be called.
    The girl was still crying so dad said, "Right. Its name is Boo Hoo Woo Hoo."
    And that's how Boo Hoo Woo Hoo got its name. True story. So whenever I see small goats I think Boo Hoo Woo Hoo.

  15. I will visit any website where there is even a slight possibility of scoring some violent lesbian dwarf porno.
