Recommend me a website! CLOSED! :]
« on: November 04, 2011, 01:43:33 PM »
Hello~ Okay, so for this one class I need to analyze a website - structure, aimed users, etc. etc.. And I'm having difficulties finding a website to analyze. x'D So recommend me some websites  ;D Which are the top 5 websites that you check? (without E, facebook, twitter and blogs :] )

EDIT: Thank you all for the help <3 I chose a website - seeing your favorite websites helped me figure out what kind of thing would be interesting to me to analyze <3

I used to read Slate.com almost daily. Used to, that is, until their redesign. Now the place is a wreck. If a US-centric news-ish magazine would fit the bill, you could try that.

elliquiy.com

/smartass ;D

I'm afraid I only check sites that aim a particular group (fans) or specialized (like conceptart.org). I'd recommend deviantart, but that is kinda right there with facebook, since "It's the myspace of art community."

From somewhat sensible (and that too fall into "resources" category) I can recommend Speech Accent Archive: http://accent.gmu.edu/ from my brief voice acting past. ;)

Avis, I think that site is seriously massive o.o at least on first look. Hm... news-ish... I dunno... We don't have requirements for the website - it can be anything, but I just want to be something interesting, you know. And I am kind of not too interested in news from the US.  ;D

Jouzi, I know, right? I check E, FB, twitter and one other forum x'D But yeah, the suggested ones are not gonna do it.

Hmmm... I'm picky...

I check a lot of Asian-American news/entertainment websites.
http://www.channelapa.com/
http://theotherasians.com/
http://wongfuproductions.com/

You could also do something you're interested in... Korean celebrity gossip and news? Or subtitling groups...
http://www.allkpop.com/
http://withs2.com/

Or comics?
http://xkcd.com/

Yes, you are. :P And you know what? All the more power to you for that.

Do you have... an idea about -what- you're looking for? Interesting is a nice characteristic, but that bears different significance to everyone...

*bookmarks them all*

Thanks, Caeli <3 I'll look through them *nods*

Avis... those are freaking weird o.o

Jouzi, mmm... okay... so the website needs to have some purpose, obviously, targeted users, navigation system, then I will need to compare it with other similar websites, and other more techie-ish stuff.

I surf around on the Rule 34 site quite a bit too, but that might be a tad inappropriate for class work. Just a tad...
