tbh you'd be better off learning PHP/ASP.NET/RoR and getting some hosting for that $8/month is not cheap I pay £9 a year for mine and that has everything I need except Kron Jobs -.-

 

You'll find if you can't modify the flash parts you'll very quickly come up with problems where what you want to do isn't what the tempalte designer wanted it to do.

I think it'd be better to have AEGs like the MP5 in the "rifles"-section.

Pistols and SMG should be for gasdriven only, in my opinion.

You can add a category for AEPs and such as well, where you can put the MP7 and G18C and such.

 

 

ok right now i have

Rifles

Pistols,SMG

Snipers,LMG

Launcher, Shells

Mech Boxes

 

Do you suggest

Rifles, SMG AEG

Pistols AEP&Gas

Snipers, LMG

Launchers, Shells, Misc

Mech Boxes

 

let me know :rifle:

I thought it was very confusing not to find the MP5with the other AEGs.

Check your spellings.

Thought the site looked very clean and profesional, but you might want to consider just making your own vids. I'd look up mechbox.com, I'm a real fan of their vids, which are nice and clean. I think that would really be the way to go to do and instructional site. Only thing is mechbox isn't updated often, and only has vids for popular replicas. Overall, looks sweet, can't wait to see how it goes!

It's alright but you'd have to work hard to beat Mechbox.com in terms of just how easy it is to find what you want.

 

Maybe, but at least this one has some links for pistols that lead to something... Mechbox looks great, but is very thin on content.

 

I found the flash startup fussy and tiresome (sorry) and echo the thoughts on linking to other people's YouTube content, but the idea is a good one.

 

Cheers.

like mentioned, linking to peoples contents is against most online ad's policy so that will stop you getting income.

 

also mentioned it wont get on googles search very easily if found to contain other peoples content.

 

My site is all my own content and took under 1 week to get onto google.

 

 

ALSO do you have marlowes permission to post on the news section??? you have to seek his permission 1st.

Hey Snowman thanks for the props, im glad to be able to provide a sight that people can benifit from.

Chownsey, as far as posting on the news section, that wasnt my doing, i just posted a forum topic and i guess someone deemed it worthy, I was pretty dang excited when i found out. :D

As far as original content, im in the process of adding more as i get my hands on guns but id like to keep the sight open to everyone, thats kinda the whole purpose, i want to give players a chance to show there stuff.

the site just makes my eyes hurt :-)

 

you need to make something pretty special since your only indexing and linking to videos on other sites, the majority of people will just head to youtube!

 

Seriously dump the flash and keep things simple, grab a simple HTML and PHP tutorial and try making your own pages instead of using 3rd party flash content apps that are all smoke and mirrors. You'd be surprised just how quick and it the basics can be - little steps :-)

 

Flash is good at simple implementations, small inline graphics and specialist apps but for whole websites they generally blow unless you have years of development experience.

 

Have a look at Mechbox, simple, clean and to the point. Looks to me like they use a CMS/Blog app, something like Wordpress probably, there's lots out there - above all keep it simple and don't even think about making money from it - yet. Good luck.

Thanks Mr Pugster, unfortunately im tied in with flash for a year, (got suckered into it) but i completely revamped the theme last night, hopefully its better on the eyes for you. The sight is more for the player than it is for profit, and i just love airsoft and like to contribute to the growing community. Id like to grow the sight into a one stop sight for all information concerning airsoft weapons, but remember its only been up less than 2 weeks. In the mean time im gonna build a bette sight on the side and launch it hopefully once i have enough content.

 

Thanks Ben

Since this thread is turning into more of a"give somone advice how to build their site" opinions, then a news announcement, moving to general.

"airsoftdna

Your Source 4 Weapon Feild Strip, Mods & Tech Tips"

 

Grammar needs some working and its too long, it gets blocked out for example when looking at the AEG section by the home icon.

So i suggest

 

"AirsoftDNA

Your #1 Airsoft technical database"

 

Not really sure if "Airsoft" needs a capital letter at the start grammar wise but without a capital letter it just did not look right :/

airsoftdna
