I had a look at it,
its cool, the 2nd camera didn't come up, the third did.

The 'Next random cam' button, change the way it looks, if you know what I mean, maybe make it bigger or something,
Maybe a link for just looking at cams from a specific country?

its a cool site though

He'll be too busy patting himself on the back to notice.

OP, much nicer job than the other random cam site, well done.

As hatz7 suggested, make the Next Cam button more prominent and maybe move it under the image, and maybe add in a tag cloud to give the user some sort of control.

Also your symmetry is a little off - align the lhs of the logo with the lhs of the webcam image (or centre them), and put the chat box under the webcam beside the Next Cam button.

"Leave a Reply" - to what? You might want to rephrase it.

Nice use of WordPress.

Thanks dude.

Hmm... I haven't been using tags, but I have put them in catagories... I can figure out the tag cloud tomorrow... I'm in China, so it's very later here.

And yes, wordpress rocks.

As for the button, I'll definitly look into this... I'm trying to keep it clean and simple... but a slightly larger button wouldn't hurt.

I guess if you're bored in work, each to their own, I love the concept.

Didnt work properly last time.

Worked now.

Logo is bad - doesnt catch the eye - ie not memorable.

The tag in firefox has the name of the cam - better to use the website name.

Bigger buttons needed.

Cool site and chat box

This sums it up. I cannot see the point of this site.


Does it engage me? no
Does it inform me? no
Does it excite me? no


....and the logo is weak.

Thanks for the feedback. That was kind of the point with the logo, I didn't want anything too striking, I wanted the main feature to be the cam.

I'll definitly look into it.

I've made the button almost twice as big I think I'll stick with that size.
