If you wish for your site to be critiqued there are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Don't get angry if people respond negatively about your site! By asking for a critique you are asking for an honest opinion.
  2. Include the URL to your site! This is the leading mistake people make when requesting a critique; they don't give the site URL.
  3. Include a description of the site - interesting sites with good content give you a better chance of an in-depth critique.
