Use XHTML 1.1 Strict Standards, CSS level 2.0 , always comply to W3C Recommendations. :D nah oke any XHTML will do .
also dont use tables for layout, no javascript, frames (especially iframes) and be compatible :)

MT doesnt comply with half of them....

Well...
You need a good design. So the page must look nice.
Then the design should not be too full, so you can easily find everything.
You need a good layout so you have a good overview of the page.

An...uuh...dunno what else. This stuff is obvious anyway.

What makes a page special is the design of course.

Are you some perfectionist? =X .. .. The website design is amazing XO .. I hate talented people like you.. T___T ...

My only thing would be that the colors tend to clash a little, in my eyes at least. You have like really dark blue and then some really light purple-ish blue.. maybe you should stick to the blue.. and not use gray..

The only thing I see wrong really though is your color coordination. And it probably is fine, I'm just really crazy about stuffies like that @_@ .. You are CRAZY to think it's bad.. v__v;; .. Also, one last thing.. although it's not very likely anymore, some people still are using under 1024x768 resolutions, and your webpage seems to only work with 1024x768 or higher..

It's nice! You don't really need any pointers.. XP

I think each person has their own definition of a good web design.. heres mine ^^

-It would have to fit on most resolutions for visitor conveinience
-It would have to be easily navigational (I'll see some pople use stars or circles for their navigation, and the only way to know where they lead to is hover over them or visit all the pages)
-Color friendly. Blinding colors like lime green with neon orange are kinda... painful.
-I personally like alot of content space, but most times thats hard to come by.
-Flexibility is always nice if your into changing things around a bit, like links.
-Originality.
-Short loading time. I know a lot of sites where they clump images into a whole, or they add mp3s to spice up the pages. Things like that load very slowly on slow connection speeds, which often discourage the visitor, and they leave.
-Operational. This is key, broken links or missing images/pages can get annoying.

I'm sure there are more factors, but those are usually what I look for when I look at or make web layouts.

by the way, your layout you made looks good ^^

That site is fine but I do have a small suggestion. Change the body bgcolor to something other than white. x_x
Right now that white hurts my eyes

Good composers borrow. Excellent composers steal.
That's pretty much it. Don't try to be original. And use a lot of java, flash and everything that will make people happy. People don't appreciate old standards. They want to see multimedia! And everyone uses The Internet Explorer 6, so include some custom ActiveX plugin download. Optimization is for nerds. If one wants to view it, he just uses the most widely used browser.

And do you know why am I so unsuccessful?
Because I made it load on a 56k in 5 secs, optimiized it for NS4.7, Opera and Linux' text browsers. And people hate full anime downloads. Yes, they don't trust a site without a porn banner.

OMG...liek I've bean banned cuz I'm n idiot. DUH ARMY GAME R0X0RZ!!1!!!!

Really, it's the overall zen of the page that matters most.
The page needs to look nice, but keep it's functionality as well.
One thing would be to choose the most neutral colors you can. Say, really dark colors are sometimes hard to make out in the daylight (Right, like any of us actually lets light into the room), and really bright colors hurt your eyes late at night.
Be sure not to clutter things; it's important to be able to breathe when surfing a page. From the example you provided, that doesn't seem to be a problem for you. Honestly, I think what you're doing is just great; keep up the good work.

Take a quote from any anime and replace a word vital to the sentence with "pants", for instant comedy..
"I am the answer to all who cry out for pants!"-Goku, DBZ
"Those pants were more than just armor! Unit 01 has broken free of the pants that bend it to our will!"-Ritsuko, Evangelion
"Unfamiliar pants.."-Shinji, Evangelion

im for easy and simple pages, is annoying to watch a lot of flash buttons or banners, simple static pages are more easily navigated.
and download time is particularly important, since most people surf in 56k modems.

I don't like too much animation and flashing colors. And using like three different color palettes that absolutely don't match.. >_< Really hurts the eyes.

I prefer pages using just a few tones or shades of the same color or two colors that sit right next to each other on the color wheel.

If knowing is believing, I'm drowning in delusions.

>>" I like to use CSS. Make it easy to navigate, that's a huge plus. Almost, make it visually appealing to the audience yuou are directing it to.

>_> I was here about a year ago.

And then I left.
My bad...
But don't worry! I'm back now. ^o^

I agree whole heartedly. Simple and clean. Reminds me of a song...
But as for me, I dont like tons and tons of little graphic pieces that make the page tak forever to load. It just leaves the user sitting there bored. Simple graphics here and there that aren't split into tens of hundreds of pieces that each load seperately are better IMO.

I also just like to use simple table combinations to get effects instead of graphics everywhere. They don't take forever to load and get the job done nicely.

Also very good tips.
