    Your blog good. 3 colors are very well picked up: black, red and white... Anything is not present superfluous.

    It is a neat site, so can't comment on that, problem is the issues and discussions are too feel, giving users quite an empty feeling. I trust that as the site mature, this problem should disappear. But do keep to the format, it is great.

    I'm not sure what you mean, I sort of understand but not really.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to fix it?

    also, put a 'start a convo' link on the 'see convos' page.

    I will be changing that to "Rules" as soon as I get around to writing a decent set of rules.
    Then the TOS will have it's own page in the footer.

    In terms of visual layout and design I think it is great. Content idea seems good, too. Like the fact the avertisement is in a clearly designated area and isn't over the top or too much. Well done! I wish you every succes with this website.

    Seems fairly accessible, though doesn't pass the W3C validation for xhtml 1.0 strict. Perhaps you should review the problems;

    validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.xconvo.com&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

    Thanks, I appreciated it :)
    I will look into the validator.

    What exactly does that do for me anyways? Having the thing validated? Does it ensure that it works for everyone?

    Well, if you're writing your pages in a particular language (in your case xhtml 1.0 strict) it just ensures that you are following the protocol of how your page should be written to comply with the 'rules' of xhtml 1.0 strict.

    It also helps with accessability so that alternative formats of viewing your website can be achieved and still allow the user to know just as much but without the pretty look to it. (For example, they may have images turned off, but if you have an alt attribute in your image tag, they'll be able to see that and know what it is a picture of).

    You don't HAVE to validate, but I think it is beneficial if you do. Apparently, it can help with SEO, too.

    I see. I will start working on that then.
    I'm not very experienced with validating though, I never really bothered with it. I guess I should now that I know it is kind of important. lol

    Not bad.. You have used striking white, black and red color in your website and it is good....

    My only 2 comments are that you might want to enhance your header to make it more interesting. More photo, videos or pictures could be also inserted too....
