Hi, would be interested in reviews of our new site. It is in closed beta while we iron out any issues and would love for you to give it a try and let us know any feedback you have.
The link: https://www.reviewport.net/rp/register.php

Ah, that home page looks a lot nicer. Very attractive. Only thing I wasn't convinced by is the white word "Register" on the register page. The bottom of the word is lost in the white section below. Doesn't quite work for me.

I do have a holding page at Review Port - Portfolio Feedback for Photographers, Web Designers and Graphic Designers but I really wanted feedback on the actual service rather than that, I asure you I would be spamming you in anyway if that helps.

Should say wouldn't be spamming you above

You have to register before you even get to see what the website is about? That's a huge turn-off.

Tell 'em to come here.

But the might like your opinion on their stuff

Nah, I'm not much of a designer, and I don't care if people like the look of what I do or not!

OK, my response was a bit mean spirited, but most times I give out personal info it gets hammered for all it's worth. Today I wanted to inquire about a product online, and they wanted name, address, post code, phone number, email ... the works. For a simple freaking question about their products. No way ...
Anyhow, I did take a quick look (sorry about the fake name and email ... feel free to delete). Looks very professional and well ordered. I probably would have had some kind of brief intro in the header—at least a subtitle or something, if not a blurb on the home page—but the getting started section was quite clear (once I found it). I suspect the simple, clean design will nicely support the pieces up for review, so well done.
It looks like a more formal, perhaps even more professional and clean version of Dribbble.

Thanks for taking a look and your comments. I will fix up the intro section for new users as I think you are right, it needs a bit more details.
I will get your fake account deleted, could you be tempted to create a real one

That's a shame as I suspect your input would have been useful. Unfortunately the registration is part of the site by design and has a purpose but I understand your reluctance to do it purely for a review. If it helps none of the info is used to spam you in any way and if you want me to delete your account after the test I would be more than happy to.

Name? email? password? ... no thanks.
blazzar — 2011-09-12T07:02:17-04:00 — #13
Thanks, yeah I see what you mean, might capitalise that and make the text a little smaller.

try use a bright background for Register.
jopfer — 2011-09-29T14:18:47-04:00 — #15
enter desired name pops up next to email address and please enter valid email pops up next to password box (ie9)
seems like all the warning messages are out of place by 1 row

The site looks good and one wants to apply, if one was a photographer.
The title may be too long. Google does not find it on portfolio review. Could you experiment with the title? Maybe Photography portfolio reviews?
blazzar — 2011-10-12T05:23:30-04:00 — #17
Thanks for taking a look, the site is also for graphic and web designers so please do create an account. I am working on the SEO currently and am slowly making my up the rankings with the term portfolio review.

Thanks for taking a look, should be fixed for IE9, doctype error.
