Re: New website (IsThatLegit.com)

The concept is really cool. With good interaction, I think you have a winning solution in your hands. But I think you can improve the visual design a bit. Having an eye catching design won't hurt you especially considering the viral value of the site. :)

Re: Motivational messages, humorous or otherwise ...

I found a nice site called http://www.poster-street.com where you can download various types of posters for free. I already printed a couple of them. Give it a go if you have time.

Re: Mind looking at this

Hey this site is about Manga. So I expected something that would jump at you. I'd say you can improve the color scheme a bit. I'd love to have a search option. URLs can really use a rewrite and more visual cues for viewers to move to the inner pages.

Re: Minimum Screen Resolution

the easiest thing you can do is go through your Google Analytics (for that matter any mainstream analytics) data. They usually collect this data. I'd say, don't worry too much about screen size.

Re: Would love some usability testing.

Google Analytics now has a beta feature called in-page analytics, which is basically a heatmap of sorts. Also, use something called www.feng-gui.com. It generates heat maps you can use.

Re: Color blindness testing

It is good for anyone to take such a http://offsetpressman.blogspot.com/2009/10/color-blindness-test-for-printers.html color blindness test. It doesn't mean you just see black and white. If you are a male, your chances of having a green or red disability are 1 in 20. Go ahead, take a test. This is ...
