Hey..guys..what ever happened to encouragement? Do you think we got it all right the first time on this site? For some of us, and i know i fit this bill...spelling is terrible. Yes, this site has some spelling mistakes. As well, i realize that alot of the caresheets point directly to Nerd....guess what...so did most of them on this site in the beginning. We are bashing someone who probably has limited skills at websites...perhaps theyre first. We have all done something for the first time and screwed up...but there is no need to be nasty. Take it for what its worth. Its a new site, a dream someone had, and they are putting time and effort into it. No need to bash, lets give good critisism and help them to advance from there.

I think you are making a good stab at this site. I wish you the best of luck with it and hope it grows for you. Like several others have stated, take your time, read and re-read. Let spell check become your best friend. Caresheets in your own words are the way to go. Just don't copy..that will get you into all sorts of trouble. Make sure to give us updates as you change things around...keep up the good work

shane, no offense, but it isn't that tough to spell a simple word such as ''able''. i did encourage him, i gave him some GREAT constructive criticism. whats the point of making a website if it's going to be filled with errors. would you trust someone who can spell the word able, or who can't spell it. theres tons of links to care sheets out there, search almost any snake on google and youll come up with a bunch of things, theres really no reason to make a site like that guy made anyways since you can search it on google in 2seconds

I'm sorry, but I disagree. Having one single repository for caresheets, even if they are just links to other sites, would be most welcome. The problem with search engines is filtering through all the CRAP that is out there. However, I will concur with a few negative points that have been been brought up as well, and I do mean this constructively:

snake_goth, your spelling and grammar is absolutely atrocious, and I think you know this already. Reading some of your posts gives me a headache, and when you make a website that you want to be taken seriously, it would be a good idea to either A) Hire someone to proofread your text or B) Get someone else to write it for you. You will not be taken seriously the way the page is now, I'm sorry to say.

However, don't listen to people about the HTML builder. That's just a bunch of elitist crap, and if anyone on this board wants to criticize you for using a template, I'll personally challenge them to an HTML match. Ignore it. The template you selected looks good, and that's all that counts.

The last and MOST IMPORTANT advice I can give you is this - email the folks at NERD and get their permission to use their care sheets. Don't ruffle anyone's feathers if you don't have to.

Hope this helps. You have a pretty good start.

I would recommend NOT going to this site, it is just a home for pop-up ads and spyware. God I love firewalls and detectioin software!

snake_goth,

Although I applaud your enthusiasm and your efforts, I am afraid I have to agree with most. If I was looking for a caresheet, why would I go from point A to point Z and THEN to point B.

The point being, your site will turn out to be nothing but a links page, and in the funky world we know as the internet, even linking to a site, pretty much requires permission. Riding on the backs of someone else's efforts is just not cool. You would be better off going for your original content based on your herp experiences and your animals, keeping in mind that you want t bring something useful to the hobby. Building a caresheet that may provide erroneous information, can be just as bad as copyright infringements so be careful.

A few years back, I was a member of an offroad club here in Ottawa and I was put to task to change their crappy little 1 page site into a place that was worthy of a visit. Well despite the fact that I am no longer involved in this site, they have stuck with my finalized design, graphics and structure. Only the current events have changed. Pop by if you like and take a peek http://ovo.ca/. Although you will no longer find accreditation on this site as my design, I am still very much in possession of ALL the revisions that were made over the three years it took to build.

The point is don't give up, don't take this as bashing, keep working at it, never be afraid to ask for opinions and help, and it will pay off in the long run. Best of luck to you.

Cheers
Jim

Everyone's had a lot of good criticism for your to work with, I have a little more to add on one point that was mentioned by someone. If you do choose to write your own caresheet in your own words, it is important that you are experienced with that animal, not just researching around other caresheets (most caresheets out there have a great degree of inaccuracy to them). There is nothing wrong with having a site that links to other people's caresheets (of course with their permission). In fact it can be quite helpful for people to just have all the caresheets at a single site instead of having to sift through the search engines, especially if you provide several caresheets for each animal. It will be enough of a challenge simply trying to find caresheets that are accurate enough.

boa's
python's

should be:

boas
pythons

Boa's is possesive. Example: My boa's cage is clean.

I'm an english major so I'm nit picky when it comes to things of this sort.
