Psh, I don’t care what kind of lesson is being learned, $250 is still money.
Lets think about what is possible. Some times, the money lost is less valuable and the new decisions taken on time from the experience can be more valuable. I know it is not easy to accept
To be clear, it is better to avoid 20 clients to escape from 10 known troubles.
...He also has a website where he claims that he’s a freelance web designer. I have no contract, because it was only a small project (about $250).
Forget about your money and it is time for you to decide for which kind of clients you should work. Usually the individual web designers can’t be trusted, atleast from my experience always better if your client has a team, minimum 2 members (you reduce 50% of risk of mind-change after project completion). Also I think losing $250 is fine to learn a lesson, in the freelance world it is perfectly alright
Your design is very close to a valuable file! Just a few risky design elements keeping its usability a bit hard to understand. For example:
1. The vertical playback scrubber could be difficult to understand for some users. I thought it is a preloader progress bar, and then volume control before realizing it is play-head control. So I would suggest to keep it horizontal and easily recognizable as play-head control.
2. In the left side thumbnail scroller, if you rollover the 1st image, sometimes the description text partially hidden above the canvas. If you can make it so that it doesn’t goes beyond the top origin, that could be nice.
3. If the thumbnail has a strong and slick rollover effect, that would make it more attractive. Invest some time there as design wise, it is the heart of your file.
4. Having 2-3 design variations (in the preview) could be convincing for different buyers with different tastes. For example, some buyers may feel something missing in the thumbnail as it doesn’t have a clear-cut separator (border) between images. Some may feel it is fine as of now. So think about that also.
Nice to see a different variety in the FB theme and I wish you good sales!
So nice, easy to navigate now!
Is the popular items link for sub categories under construction? For Activeden it doesn’t shows.
Some populars links are not working. Also 3 months popular section is missing.
The 3 Months top seller list shows but only on Community>Popular Files link.
The spammer is so active, I have 3 comments in a row flagged. Should we contact directly famalebads.com to stop spamming? LOL
what is your problem if the word Flash exists atleast in the facebook profile!
I wish to show some sneak previews but the problem is I may end up with different design before completing file!
May be many of you noticed a particular spam repeatedly posted on most of the new item comments. Looks like the spammer doesn’t hesitates to open new account and makes it again and again. The result is some of the item comments looks weird as continuously atleast one comment shows “flagged as inappropriate”.
Isn’t there any way to avoid this? Something like not allowing to open new account from a marked IP address etc?
