    1. About Us

      I have no complaints this page, as it is perfectly functional. However, I will posit that Lauren and my site having pictures of our pets instead of ourselves was way cuter, so there!

    1. Significance

      This page being at least three times the length of the other primarily text ones is kind of weird and overwhelming.

    1. utlet.

      I like the below clipping, but I also cannot read any of the text save the headline, which is rather an irritance.

      All the graphs and images here are very nice and informative, as well as aesthetically appealing. I especially enjoy how you managed to have your graphs and charts use the same colour scheme as your website.

    1. arin Perry, a

      The big pages being inserted in do annoy me somewhat in that they make this page far longer than the others I have been on so far, but I suppose that is justified.

    1. Glass by Ellen

      I absolutely love this top banner. It is gorgeous, and the subtitle is a nice reference to the topic of the website. That may be my own bias toward purple, black, and grey, however.

    1. “We ask only for justice and equal rights—the right to vote, the right to our own earnings, equality before the law. ”

      The quotes on this page don't match the rest of them font and size wise.

    1. I like that the heading of each page is exactly the same, as well as the consistent use of quotes at the top of the historical pages.

    1. How can a rational being be ennobled by any thing that is not obtained by its own exertions?

      I love the idea of putting quotes into the different pages! it's looks nice and it's infomative

    1. Lincoln's Biography

      The red, black, and white text colors and boxes allow for text visibility, simple design, and easy-to-navigate webpages.

    2. Lincoln Digitization Project

      The site's simple color scheme allows for easy reading, yet the serif font gives a sense of historical importance and nostalgia.

    1. I believe the use of historical photos in the text allows for not only an eye-catching display, but for a clear message and point of interest.

    1. Visitors to Women and Social Movements in the U.S.: Please be advised that the database is transitioning to a new platform in February, March and April. During those months this transition process may limit the functionality of some of the database's features. Thank you for your patience as technical teams at Alexander Street work to create an exciting new version of Women and Social Movements.

      One of the things I noticed about this website was that it looks kind of outdated. Not in the sense that it's not updated with current information or that it's not reliable, but more in the way that it feels very old. With the newer and newer technology, I'm glad they're updating their appearance so that it can be even more appealing.


      I feel like this section kind of comes out of no where. and I'm still kind of confused about how they are a historical website but they also have journal issues? The pictures are eye catching but also throw off the aesthetic of the page.

    3. Browse

      The navigation bar being constantly visible and accessible on the side is something I know Sean wants on the our website and I'm inclined to agree. I think it makes the site easily approachable and accessible.

    4. I don't like how small the font is. I think it makes the site title page look cluttered.

    5. There's different ways to browse the website which I really like. I'm not sure how feasible it would be to include a search bar on our website, but I would like that feature.

    1. Gorgias said that you should kill your opponents' earnestness with jesting and their jesting with earnestness;

      This will only work, though, if your audience looks to you as some sort of authority figure - if you don't seem to know what you're talking about, I think that doing what Gorgias suggests would only make you look foolish.
