The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Today we're talking about web design. What makes a site good? What makes a site bad? As we start off most of our days, we're going to begin here, at the Sheldon HTML web site.

So we've spent a ton of time talking about what makes a site good and what makes a site bad. If we want to develop a good, useful product that accomplishes our goals, we need to keep the components of good design in mind. Think about everything we’ve discussed today.

  4. The five things i think that a website needs to have are information backing up the title of the website.you need information for the page not to be bland.you also need colors to make it stand out.you need pictures to show proof,a copyright label so people dont steal it and a high web rating so people dont say its boring

  11. 1. They need eye-catching colors.
    2. They need a very strong structure.
    3. They need a clear index or table of content.
    4. They need the least amount of adds as possible.
    5. They need something to catch your eye.

  12. Nice, guys. Most of you came up with very similar things - like colors, structure, images, and games.

    Genesis had some great ideas that we didn't talk about in class. For example, she said a site needs to have a copyright notice so people don't steal your work. Do you think that's necessary? Are you worried about people stealing your work?
