You put it more bluntly that I did. But yes, I agree.
Each to their own, and whatever floats your boat, and all that.

Each to their own however. Good luck with your collection.

I somewhat agree, to me it gave the impression of it was a website about 2 guys who just happened to also keep boas.

hahahahahaha! i was thinking exactly the same.

it's a nice idea, but i think the images are a bit...well...gay.

i'm a pain in the arse when it comes to critiquing websites as it's the attention to the little details that i pick up on...for example where you have the images and the text underneath - some of the text is off-centre. also the images on the main pages are taken against a black background that is slightly lighter than the black of the webpage, so you can see the image box.

they are just little bits though that are easy to get round, and most people probably wouldn't even notice. i like the idea, and the design is good!

I tend to agree about the overload of male dominated pics.

I'm a gay guy, and it's too much, almost a little sleazy lol

Stick to pics of the snakes as that's what everyone wants to see. The layout and colour scheme etc looks great. The pics however make it look a little self indulgent?

Hahahaha laughing lots at the gay dating site comments X-D well basically the photos were from a free photoshoot with a great photographer but they were for his portfolio so we had to do/look as we were told as a condition. I dont have any other "proper" photos of them (as I'm a bit new to photography) so I chucked them in. Tried to do the colour splash thing in the "about" section to put the emphasis on the boas, didn't realise it would offend so many people X-D right then i will have to make some changes CLEARLY LOL.

Cool

A man who listens to sense. The "Smart money" says you'll turn it into a very successful site, if somewhat stylish... mind you though, any time someone mention metal I think of cars. Niiiiiiice cars, faaaaast cars, vrm vrm.


Good luck you crazy kids!
