I ran a website when I was 12.

It was a shit site, but at least I had content. And at least I learned how to become better at it.

But they don't serve a purpose except for getting your codes. It's not an 'actual' website, and other people don't post theirs.

Terry, do you have some kind of disorder that a. prevents you from taking criticism the right way and b. inhibits your ability to make sense? No-one was flaming you, and your site is not a good site no matter how long one spends there (the less time, the better, actually--it has been proven by science, you know!)

eta: and c. shifts your consciousness into the mystic land of Terryland in which everything that you do not approve of is blocked out near-instantaneously

I always find it more than slightly hypocritical when people judge on age when there is a difference of about a year--the difference isn't that big.

I'm sorry, but that was a decent comment. I did not get that post at all. *frowns* And there is no reason to lash out like that.

We have been giving decent comments.

Terry, it seems in almost every thread that you display something you've done, we always imply the same thing almost every time, with the forum, the adoptables, and now this site.

YOU NEED TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING AND CREATIVE

I'll say that a second time.

YOU NEED TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING AND CREATIVE

Third time's the charm.

YOU NEED TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING AND CREATIVE

And one last time for extreme emphasis

YOU NEED TO MAKE THINGS MORE INTERESTING AND CREATIVE

See what I did there? I underlined each individual word for emphasis, and I made the words that were really important really large.

Oh, wait, every word is large.

I guess it's all important. I'll even post this in your profile messaging thing so you really won't forget.

Thank you!!!

Terry, I wouldn't call a one paged internet based thing (for lack of a better word) I would call it more of a web page. Which, is supposedly an add for your adoptable thread. At least, that's what I hear. I can't read any of it because of the yellow words and the light, completely unrelated background picture. I would also change the sponsored links thing to just "links"

My site is more of a site than this. And I can't even edit the HTML. Take our advice, make the adoptables interesting, get some creativity, stop flaming US*points to censored cuss post*, and don't advertise a site with vitually no content. Please.

Don't claim to sponsor or be sponsored by sites that have nothing to do with you.

Or in other words, learn what words mean before you use them.
