  • Spam from templatestyles.com?

    Hello,

    anyone got that annoying mails from templatestyles.com?

    I have visited your site and I think that design looks not good now.

    Here we are - www.templatestyles.com . Check it out! We have hired 2 new designers
    from Indonesia. They rocks!

    Swap your current design on ours.

    ...I have visited your site and I think that design looks not good now... What a compliment for countless hours of work, bad marketing "strategy" :/

    I prefer Jessica's mails

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have visited www.mcseboard.de and found it is a thoughtfully designed one with much helpful information but
    poorly listed in many search engines. It's time to do something...
    Whatever, the site seems down to me at the moment,
    cu,

        Just one of the names they give to some bot the crawls the net searching for sites, takes screenshots of 'em, and sends it back to the admin saying that it's not indexed properly and a lot of other crap like that. :P

          Which is probably a sign that your site is indexed properly. lol.

              Yeah like Ravio uses some unique color combinations. They use blues, oranges and grays predominantly. Arguably among the most used colors in the world let alone the Internet.

                  While it's a great site (I followed the SP thread on it), the colour balance does look more like a Ravio-style than, say, SitePoint, which also uses similar colours. Sure, those colours are common these days, but that particular style recalls too much of Ravio to discredit DirectPixel's comments entirely. Esp. being a template site, it's obviously inspired by Ravio.

                  I personally think that orange should be banned from the net. Except for SitePoint and Ravio.

                      I was and am still able to visit the sites mentioned in the thread so far. (www.templatestyles.com and www.mcseboard.de).

                      Odd...

                          That may just be my fault.

                          If you tried the link from my post without looking, there was a comma on the url. I fixed it.
