Sorry, I looked at the thread - but went out straight afterwards and when I got back it wasn't highlighted as unread. Anyway, I have looked at the site and it is very good, some stuff I knew, other things I didn't. Another useful reference site for when I am not sure about something.

Good work,

But I would recommend going over the grammar, even though I know that you are not a native english speaker. But it wouldn't hurt since it would make the site a lot more professional, and would increase it's appeal.

As well as removing certain team logos, cars, etc. Since it may appear to visitors that there is a biased point of view within the administrators. Or having a variety of team logos displayed at once, to add variety and a wider spectrum of offered 'taste' for viewers.

And do you need permission from the sites which you have linked on the side bar? I noticed that you have highly recognized sites such as F1Technical and Autosport.

Another recommendation would be to move the introduction on the main page to another location within the site, possibly a seperate 'About the site/me' page. Instead of having that information directly on the main page, since it's very personal and has little to do with Formula One itself, which is why visitors are there in the first place.

Thank you for your recommendation mx_tifosi. :D

About my language capabilities, I know there are some misspellings and things like that, but I'm doing my best. I'm using MS Word spelling and grammar to check for problems. I will try to improve this area.

On my web index page, I sad that I'm Ferrari fan, but first of all I'm F1 fan. My site is not sponsored by anybody, it's only my creation. Except small Ferrari logo, site is not biased in any way.
For example, car in my banner is not Ferrari, but 1968 Dan Gurney Eagle, my favorite and most beautiful F1 car.
Articles on site are not biased in any way, and are talking about F1 technology in F1, including Minardi, Jordan, McLaren, BMW, Ferrari, Super Aguri and any other team.

About links to other sites, honestly, I don't know. I don't believe that only linking to other site is a problem. That is a promotion to linked sites, and I don’t see a problem. You know, I'm just amateur, and I didn't go in deep with this problem. Maybe I should.#-o

I was thinking about „INDEX“page to be something like starting point to dictionary. I don't see it to make starting point of dictionary directly from letter –A-. For sure, I will move „About me“part to „About me“page.

Just to inform you all guys that my site has changed location. that's mean that all old links will work for next few months, because I will work on both sites for some time. After that time only new will work. There is a lot of new articles on new site, all together 250 of them.

Great job Seas! I'm impressed to see that you have continued and improved so much.

And I can even remember replying to this thread almost four years ago, time flies!

The overall colour is dark and unpleasant IMO. I didn't even start to read it... so good work.. but the colour can be more welcoming. like this site 8)
