Well to directly answer your question:It is good but how long dose it take to load when the connection is of 15 kbps?
Well to directly answer your question:
It is 128.5KB. Convert that to bits is 1028Kb. So 1028Kb downloaded at 15 kbps is 68 seconds.
However where did you get 15kbps from? Even 15 years ago you couldn't get internet connections that slow. Most people internet connection is 3 orders of magnitude faster than that (ie, 1,000 x).
And plus my site is Exclusively tailored to people that own blackberries (and higher end blackberries at that). So it is Very unlikely that my traffic will be people with the slowest internet connections in the entire world.
As a professional web developer/designer myself, its always good web development practice to ensure your site or client's site is user friendly, cross-browser compatible, and loads quickly no matter what the connection speed. Never assume that your site will only be visited by people with a really fast connection speed, and never assume that people are not far away from the server which adds to slower download speeds due to net congestion, etc. And you can never be really sure who visits your site unless it is password protected, deliberately hidden from search engines, and the link is only given to people that you want to have it. So the original question about the 15kbps is actually a valid and good one to ask
As far as your logo goes, I find it to be a bit large, it will overwhelm your site, imho. While the basic idea is good, I'd scale back on the size a bit. Ultimately, the themes are what you want people to be interested where their focus should be when they visit your site, and your logo should complement your site not be the main focus of attention.
Personally, I'd simplify the text and not use so many effects, the drop shadow and gradient are fine, however the chrome effect is a bit over the top and you might want to lose the drop shadow behind the web address so that the text above it stands out and gives a better illusion of depth - follow what I mean? Also, I'm not a real fan of all the little black squares jumping out of the balckberry. You might consider toning it down and fading them out as they go over the text or removing them completely. I feel this would make a stronger image. Logos should not be "busy". When designing logos even complicated ones, the best rule of thumb to remember is: Less is More
Hope my knowledge is of use to you, however ultimately it is your logo
Nope I don't, I have a Great attitude. You seem to have a rather thin skin and have missunderstood my posts.You seem to have a really poor attitude when asking for other people's opinion's. And you seem to have little understanding of anything I said to you in my post. We were specifically talking about your logo. No image should take any amount of time to download - just because you can make something big and bulky doesn't mean you should.
I would suggest in the future that since you know everything already that you not ask for critique on your work.
Nope, I don't have a bad attitude you just missread the intent of my posts.No, you really have a bad attitude. You asked "What we thought of it" they told you.
Not everyone has a blazing fast internet connection. When I'm at my church, doing tech work, I have 15kb/s. The router is ~750 feet away.
You're the one with your panties in a bunch. The user who asked the 15kb/s question asked a valid question, and you got in a bad mood and attitude because you didn't like what they had to say.
Personally, I don't like your logo at all. It's too large, and as others have CORRECTLY stated, it's too big and bulky for conventional web design. Scale it down, do something. The effects used are also pre-anything. No logo I've seen in a while has used bevels, thick shadows, etc. It's just not used in web 2.0. It's not standards anymore. If I brought a logo like that to my client, or my graphic design professor, they'd laugh at me.
Put bad in, get bad out.
I was even going to be nice in this post. But the fact that I had a seizure yesterday, and that you're just so damn cocky has put me over the edge. I'm going for a bike ride.
Good day Sir,
1. Your an idiot.
2. You say your site's designed for balckberry users, when it's almost too big for it (I tested it on my blackberry).
3. Suggestions for improvement: redesign it. Your logo looks like crap. That's my honest opinion. I wouldn't trust your site for my blackberry themes.
Your opinion is false because I am highly intelligent, therefore not an idiot. You are basing your statement on the fact that comments I made on a internet forum upset you, not on my intelligence (I still fail to see why you are so upset).So my opinions false because your a conceided bastard? Grow up.
Oh by the way. That should have said is too big for.
Nope, not naive either. Quite wise actually.Being conceded is a bad thing you naive idiot.
If you think you're so great, then why in the good lord's name would you ask for opinions on your work of you're already so great?
I'm done. Your not worth the fight. Good luck.
Your opinion is false because I am highly intelligent, therefore not an idiot. You are basing your statement on the fact that comments I made on a internet forum upset you, not on my intelligence (I still fail to see why you are so upset).
Conceited? Yes I am, and for good reason too. You say that like it is a bad thing.
Yes I am a noob when it comes to PS. Yes I am highly intelligent. Why would you think those 2 comments are mutually exclusive? I am highly intelligent and a beginner at photoshop. I am learning fast, but still don't know much.you started this thread off saying you are a "noob" when it comes to PS. Does your conceit and intelligence mean to say you prefer not knowing anything? You logo is far too big for the space you have put it in, yes i looked at you site and the banner sucks....a 7 year old could do better.
You only focus on the 15/kbs comments and REFUSE to look at anything else that is being said about your crappy logo. A logo design I have seen on other websites with poor reputation.
I repeat: since you seem to have all the answers why do you bother to post a thread? Could it be you just love to stir up trouble.
I have truly tried to be of assistance to you in this thread. You are only interested in things people say that agree with you, that is not constructive nor helpful.
I will no longer feed your trolling tendencies - feast upon someone else's good help.
You're telling me I'm misadjusted.
I just had a seizure yesterday. So you're telling me I'm misadjusted and, "Angry" even though I'm recovering from my brain rebooting.
Maybe your just an idiot. Yep. I think that's it.
