nice site layout
could be a bit better but, it works

also .co.nr is better than .tk
.tk requires over 20 hits per month (bad for a starting website)
.co.nr only requires 1 per month
also .tk puts up an annoying banner
.co.nr only wants 1 small linkback image on your main page only

I like .co.nr better myself

also, can't help cuz I have my own group
(we could affiliate though ;D)

Why does it say RMRK is an affiliate? (you spelt it wrong)

Why do you call yourself not just a company, but a corporation? :/

Gutsy move, i know. (Plus company sounds just lame) And were not exactly starting we've been out for a couple years now, and I have no problem getting hits really. (I dont think its 20 hits per month, i think it's every three months)

I'll look into .co.nr

you can go herehttp://www.dragonsoft.invisionplus.net/ to check out our fourms if you want and FYI we just got done with a little "hack war" according to tradesoft but to me its them getting lucky on guessing our passwords. The fourms are about dragonsoft games development and RPGMaker/gamemaker etc. you can also just hang out like it is around here.

<3 Back.
Here is my feedback for your team's website:

Flash website designs are quite unnecessary, most of the time.  Honestly, I don't see why a flash website is needed here.

The text is a bit too small, and the quality of the logo isn't good.  I see resolution problems.  Content is fine.  You describe each game, offer screenshots, etc.  I would just use text formatting a little more to my advantage, making the content more readable, easier to the eyes.  For titles, characters' names, etc. use bolds, or bigger text.  It's your choice.  But separate headlines from actual content.  Highlight important parts, and so on.

And why don't you add an "About" section?  That is one important thing to do when you create a website and isn't very self-explanatory.  I think that every website should have some space in which to explain what it is about.  You'll save your visitors valuable time.

The forums...  Well, I think they could be better, in many ways. 
First, the banner is quite bad, and sorry for whoever designed it, but all I see is three random images placed one on top of the other (RMXP splash image and something else) and some text ---with exagerated 'noise' effects-- on top of them. 
The forum skin isn't bad, but I think I've seen those same colors somewhere else.  The content is way to the left.  I think you should align the boards to the center, just like in most forums.  That's the current tendency, and what looks cleaner.  It's okay to have flat colors and little to no graphics sometimes.  But if you really want consistency in the design, make a simpler banner. 
Why not just use the same logo that you have at the website (I am hoping that is an original logo), alter the colors to match the forums' skin, and then place the title "Dragonsoft", not over the logo image, but to its right, or somewhere where it can be read?  Also, remove that ugly red 'noise' effect from the text, and soften the bevel.  That makes things easier to you and to visitors.  A neat and simple design is always better than anything complex.  Eye candy isn't everything.
If I were the owner of those forums, I'd prefer to have them look more like the official website.  I would use similar or equal colors.  I would have the same graphics, too.  This makes for an identity, and a consistent overall look.  Don't you think so?  Don't let free forum services limit your creativity.

About the "corporation" part, I think you should just go by "Dragonsoft".  There is no need to use fancy words such as "studios", "inc", "corporation", "productions" etc. in your title.  And less when there is really no corporation, studio or big company.  Too many people already make that mistake.  They think that by adding such a word in their group's title, they'll sound cooler and more professional.  Sometimes, the so called studio or company is ran by one single person.  I don't think Square Enix has to go by "Square Enix Corporation"; neither does Bioware, nor many other big game development companies.  Dragonsoft is a nice name all by itself, so why not use just that?  Make things simple, and you'll be better. :)

Also, did you ask RMRK for affiliation?  I will advise that you don't make a website your affiliate without even asking first.  That isn't even called affiliation, because the idea is to link to each other.  It's supposed to be a mutual work, and all you're doing here is relate yourself to RMRK and give this community more visitors.  Personally, I would feel angry if just any website came and claimed to be affiliated to mine.  If what you intended was to add a link to RMRK at your website, for whatever reason it is, which I feel was well-intentioned in this case, then I suggest to make a separate section for "Links".  :)

Well, sorry for the long post.  I am writing this, hoping to help you.  Nothing else.  Please do not take it personally, and don't feel offended by my criticism.  Take it as some advice for improvement.

Good luck to your team.

JESUS. Well, thanks, I guess. I do have my own opinions, and some of what you said makes sense. I LOVE FLASH, and it's my choice (people love my layout). The forums are something to be severed (trust me, they WILL go) but I'm not on my comp at the moment. You actually gave me some insight on the affiliation thing. Not to mention, on certain browsers, such as IE, the logo will look a bit off. I'm experimenting with PNG's and JPEG's and such.

I used corporation, because it just has a ring to it, with the fact that there are a billion other dragonsoft's too. (THE LOGO IS ORIGINAL, OF COURSE, AS WELL AS EVERYTHING ELSE).

Standards vary, and yours is held MUCH TOO HIGH (I'm not a pro). We have a humble company, and a different advertising policy. But you did help, and I thank you.

But you're not a fucking company, for god's sake, when will people get it?

I can't just waltz around Proclaiming RMRK is "owned" by Crankeyed Internet Media Services LLC or some other bullshit, it doesn't work like that. You go through a legal process of registration.

You obviously have not, and it just makes makes you look stupid and like a kid trying to fruad people into thinking you're actually some real "company" or something. It does the opposite of making you look "professional".

Do you even know what a Corporation is?

I am glad I could at least help.  Maybe my standards are too high, as you say, and I also understand that you like flash.  I'm just trying to follow what I've learned from my little design and web design experience.

The problem I see with flash is that not everybody has a flash plugin installed, and this people is usually the kind that knows little about computers and internet, so they will hardly know how to install the plugin, and won't be able to access your website.  It's okay for them, because they can just close the window and not care for the website anymore.  The consequences are for the owners, who will have less potential visitors.  This is the same for websites packed with lots of unnecessary graphics.  And that is just one of the reasons for which flash websites aren't always the choice.  Others could be related to a visitor's connection speed, or unexpected errors in your flash, which can occur.  I've encountered flash websites that are perfectly accessible to some, but not to others, even though they possess the same resources that the ones able to see the animation do.

I still insist on the forum banner for the same reason.  Why care for the banner?  Well, it may not be crucial for your forums' traffic, but banner images and logotypes are supposed to identify your group, company or community.  It's not only a matter of having a good-looking image in there or not.  Design is more about delivering a message successfully through visual content than anything else.  I am not telling you to change it, please know that.  If the forums are going to be severed, then there's really no need for that.

As for the DragonSoft Corporation part, it's your choice.  I am just giving my honest opinion.

In the end, you decide on what to do, as it is your website and we may have different views on the same thing.

Again, good luck.  ^^;

Yeah, I like DragonSoft as a name more than DragonSoft Corporation, but that is your choice, you don't need to remove it if you don't want to.

Off topic, why are RMRK's affiliates so weird, we have like Deithe Entertainment (which consists of a single RM screenshot)and Pzanno Music (which I haven't been able to access). Short Story is cool though. Why don't we have RM affiliates?

Let us set things straight here. Were are a small company, group, band of five people, corporation, whatever the fuck you want to call us, and we do what we feel like is working for us. My opinion is that it shouldn't matter what were called as long as we produce good stuff. To me a name means little, SO CALM THE HELL DOWN!!!

 :tpg: Okay, now that thats said and done, I have a few more words to add. I told you the forum would be deleted, and so it will, and the shoutbox put in it's place. I honestly don't know a single person who doesn't have the flash plugin installed (If you don't, your very VERY SAD). From what this thread tells me, and other threads on other forums, people generally like my layout, so I'm sticking with it.

"Immaturity does not draw in the help you want". Well apperently it does, because Irgna, Nouman, DAS, and Namkor have agreed to afiliate and help one another at one point.

Sorry I had to respond with a little anger, for I feel like a cornered animal who must defend itself.

Hey, and please excuse Yukimora, he just got ticked off and went on a rant with no periods which I felt like doing too. Sorry, and thanks for commenting (Especially to modern algebra and Arywm, who seemed to be the most reasonable.)

Flash has purposes for websites if you're looking to be flashy (no pun), but it's stupid and unprofessional to use flash to make a site that could be done with just HTML.

You force people to wait, destroy accessibility and make your content invisible to any search engine worth caring about.

Why do you guys continue to post? All of your arguments are opinionated and speculative with no truth. I've already proved you wrong in nearly all aspects. It's time for you to move on and ridicule others.

     Dude, first of all, we post because we have something to say, are arguments are not opinionated, there is truth, and you haven't proved us wrong anywhere outside of dreamworld.

     This isn't ridicule, it's an attempt to give you creative criticism, and you've got "author shock". Get over it, fix things up, be better for it.
