Hm, to be honest, that's a pretty confusing home page. The message is hard to read and understand, and I had to make quite a few attempts to click on those tiny dots. Fun idea, but not practical for the web.
The site needs a better explanation of what it's for. The site is unusable with JS off, too, which is not great. The web should primarily be a blout clear, accessible content, maybe with a bit of JS enhancements for some users but which don't get in the way for others.

Once again, I agree with Ralph.
to be honest, when I first came on the page I thought my monitor was having issues. Until I read the super tiny text description and realized that those pixels are supposed to be links.
My feeling about advertising is that it is supposed to be visible, not something you have to work to find. Most people are already a bit uninterested in looking at ads, but to make them work to find an advertisement seems like forcing someone to go to the dentist and then do their own root canal. it is an interesting idea, though.
Anyway, you didn't ask for a feasibility study, you asked for us to comment on the design.
My main points:
- The fonts are rather small and hard to read.
- The logo is a little small and hard to make out (plus how to do you pronounce that? Foh-kee Box? Fohk Box? Fah-kee Box?)
- pixel size ads hard to make out. Maybe super small ones instead? Like 5x5 or 10x10?
It reminds me of a site from several years back where you could rent a pixel space on a site to help a cancer patient or someone get a organ transplant or something. I don't recall, but since everyone wanted to help the person they would buy a pixel (or many pixels) to advertise. So you could go to the website and see the various donations to help this person out. Some big company would buy 500 pixels and put a 50x10 banner there with their logo and it would both help their branding and help out the kid. I could be remembering this wrong though ... It was back in the 90's.
Anyway, that was a big old tangent. Thanks for reading!

The concept is pretty cool. However, the dots are small and in clusters. little difficult to navigate. Also should have an explanation on navigation. Otherwise pretty cool concept. Dirtrider217

the site template is not good so change it, also the dots are very little make it larger and there was a website who provided same service like you are providing now.

The design is intriguing but sorry, but I don't get it. If I wasn't reviewing this site I would have been off it straight away. I had to manoeuvre the mouse carefully to see what they reveal. At least make the dots bigger. You have a grammar mistake in the welcome box - if you want to look at......

Thx for reviewing I really I appreciate that!
It is only the beat version ... so there a lot of stuff to do, to work with font sizes, graphics etc. But the dots sizes I leave as it is ... because the idea of the map is to keep as many links to other websites as possible. Yes it is hard to click them, because of the number of registered websites ... it is only 56 ))) but when there will be about 56 000 ... that will look amazing ))))
There was a website milliondollarhomepage where others could buy a pixels and place banners ... but my concept and idea is totally different and unlimited ...
1) it is free for all website owners
2) all registered websites are in catalogue where others can visit interested category or to use search. Of course there is nothing to search within 56 websites )))
3) There will be developed other functions for users with registered websites to increase their traffic
Thank you for critics and positive words. I appriciate you to add your website )))

alamshar thx for noticing my grammar mistakes! )))
And how do you think would it be better if I set catalogue as index page instead of the map page?
system — 2011-11-12T05:52:14-05:00 — #9
Very fun :D, I've just added my site.
fokebox — 2011-11-12T08:44:05-05:00 — #10
Thx a lot =) that's the way it is ))) there is nothing to loose when someone submit his own website )))

Hmm, I'd have to agree with the first few suggestions. Very confusing! There's not a lot (or any) explanation of what's going on to be honest and it might better suit your site to explain the point of it very clearly.

Viewing the website in chrome there is NO content on the home page. Also I noticed then when moving between pages the address bar does not change at the top. This will make it difficult for Google to crawl your website as it thinks there is only one page.

Hallo there! And thank you very much for your comments and reviewing! I admit that some things should be changed! And I would appreciate if you help me to correct my explanations that I have made! ))) inbox me!
There is no links on the other pages, because of frames ... I can't escape using it because of some reasons ... in future I will remake it better way!
whatavps — 2011-11-15T16:25:40-05:00 — #14
Very Nice! I just added my site

WhataVPS Thx for submitting your website ... it is the greatest support for this project. So I invite others to submit their websites )))
asadleo75 I will improve my explanations as better as possible =)
erdmask — 2011-11-18T04:55:37-05:00 — #17
Truly have no idea what to start with. When i first opened the page i was confused.:
You definitely need to change the main page. It look like a joke, but not like the web site.
Main page need easily and fast describe the viewer what is he doing here and what you can suggest him. Your main page showing dead pixels on the screen.
If you need more details feel free to contact me.
fokebox — 2011-11-18T13:20:47-05:00 — #18
Thx for commenting ... i have made pop up window with short explanation, but I have to add more definitely ... I'll write you for details!
Anyway process is going on ... some website owners submit their links )))

Contrary to most of these negative nancies on here, I actually really liked the layout and the whole presentation, everything is up to date and clean. I like the form system and how everything flows. Very simple to use and it is a great idea, similar to the ad pixels, but I like it!
fokebox — 2011-11-19T05:48:09-05:00 — #20
Thank you for positive words ))) It is a very good support for me =) ... I know there are lot of things to do and improve ... but this site has just started ... and I wait for new registrations )))
