It's not much now, but I'm finding a better host, and I'm working on adding more things. I'd really apricuate it if somebody would rate it, 10 being the best, and 1 being the worst. The URL is   yancy.virtue.nu   and it's about Yancy.

I rate your site a 5.  You lost the most marks because of the pop-up mini-hell that came up when I entered.  The content itself isn't bad.

Yeah, the pop ups were pretty bad man. But I thought it was an ok site. The fanfics were quick read, looks like a good beggining for a site.

You may want to fix your redirect URL.

Overall the site looks ok, and seems to have decent content.

From a design point of view, frames... big nono. If there is one thing you need to fix its to remove the frames. Other than that not too bad, the advertising banners unfortunately are full of nasty javascripts and bad practices, but there isn't much you can do about that. There is a few outdated tags, such as <center> (use <div align="center"> ) font (use stylesheets). There is also usage (which appears totally unnecessary) of tables which should again be done with stylesheets.

On the whole, not bad. Fix the frames and you are good to go. From me, that's not a bad review   ;)

Why make a website about Yancy ?
He's only featured in like 5 minutes total.

Muchas gracias, Teral.  :)

I can see the site now I've switched to IE, while Mozilla only redirected to an advertisement page... yeah Y_L_B, definitely lose these popups.   :(

Not to sound negative, but this gets an official rating of 1 for me.

bad design, this looks terrible;
Trust me, you do not want to use frames or have a background like that.

too little content
-I know this can grow but my point remains valid

Popups and advertising.
-There is no bigger put off than this.

You need to buy a domain name and pay for better hosting.
-This may sound a bit harsh but if you have a domain name people remember your address better, also if you pay for hosting you don't have popups or ads (unless you want them.)

if you haven't got the pocket money for this fair enough;

However, judging that you're new to this stuff, i can forgive you, you will get better and I'll be happy to see any improvements in the future.

I also think that making a site about a character who didn't appear much is a bad idea, there isn't really much to go on or to expand apon, it is a good start though.

I'm likely to be far more harsh than other people since I am a veteran to websites hehe     :)

Check out my website, http://www.sayargh.net/,  it suffers from the lack of content guiltyness too right now so i'm one to preach.

I know there's not a lot of content. I'm trying to add more, though.

The thing is, I would pay, and I wish I could, but my allowence is only $5 a month...if I'm lucky.

You think I'd be that stupid?!      ;) No. I'm planning for it to be sort of a site to honor every minor character. Call me stupid, but I think I could get a LOT of content out of that type of thing.

I don't blame you. If I had money, I swear to God I'd upgrade.

Thank you all for your reviews! I didn't know so many people didn't like frames...

How would I go about removing the frames, but keeping the menu?

The only way to do that is to include the menu on every page, and without SSI (Server Side Include - look on google.com about that.) That means you have to edit every page when you change the menu, that is if your host even supports that standard.

I use it on my website and I edit 2 file to change the entire layout.

While my layout may be "crap" to two people here 2 other people have said they liked it so you can't win em all, I think people may dislike it because of the width of the body perhaps, it does look rather thin but my idea was to allow everyone to be able to view it  :)
