About linm.me:

Linm.me is an album of images with a different approach where there are others who add images to you. Your album has a short address as http://linm.me/your_username that you can pass to your friends easily through Twitter or any other ways.

When others add photos, you can easily accept or reject the photo for your album.

Linm.me follows the wave of http://threewords.me/, but lets your friends illustrate with photos rather than describe you in writing.

    1.  I think the sight is about creating picture albums to pass on to friends.
    2.  I don’t like the big white box at the top … too much dead space. Also, the white box overlaps some of the buttons on the left, while the “like” FB button runs into the little sentence under the logo.  The logo is great, by the way.
    3.  Definitely not enough information on the opening page!  Include some boxes that tell what the sight is about, what service is offered, etc.
    4.  I’m not really into black backgrounds.  There are so many nice colors that could go with lime green…
    5.  Your fonts don’t “pop.” Nothing special about them.
    6.  If I understood more about what the site was about I might be willing to sign up.  I got as far as uploading an image.  Really don’t like the whole white box on black on all of the pages.  Maybe if the box looked a little different…

    Visit http://linm.me. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about? Briefly I think this website is about images.  I am assuming is to be a site where friends can add images to my album.
    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site. The first thing that hits me upon opening the website to the landing page is the fact that the “Likes” are blocking my complete view of the wording that begins with “Illustrate Me”.  I had to go back to this page to view what it was trying to say.   Also, if I were to land on this website without having read the above information, I feel that I would know nothing about what the purpose actually is.
    What do you find bothersome? What do you like? I find the fact that there is no significant information as to what this site is clearly about frustrating to me.  I would like a complete explanation as soon as I land o the website.    Also, maybe because of the browser I am using, but I cannot see what the brief description is.  The “Likes” are covering the words, as previously mentioned in the first paragraph.
    The front page in itself, starts off well.  I like the coloring, I like the title, and the indexes at the top, but getting to that big blank white box kind of stopped me in my tracks.
    What do you think of the sign up process? The sign up process is very easy and self explanatory.  It took me just a matter of seconds to completely sign up.  I’m not sure about uploading the image though.
    Would you sign up? If not, why? I, personally, would not sign up.  I don’t have a need for such a service though.  I could see how people who are more social would like it, however.  It might be fun to see what images others upload to your page.
    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have. I uploaded an image to add to Zeke’s album.  It was fun to do and I think with a little more tweaking, this website could be a hit.

    This site allows user to post pictures of themselves and also see pictures of their friends.

    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site.
    The website seems to be poorly done and not creative as it could be. The text box in the middle is not very descriptive and it very boring visually. There seems to be no color scheme and the black is very over powering. The pictures at the bottom seem like a nice idea but they need to configured differently, maybe with title of who the people are, and or nicknames.  The language on the page needs to be edited it so that it is understandable. The title on the website needs to be more polished and finished, it looks very juvenile. The

    What do you find bothersome? What do you like?
    I did not see anywhere on your site a place to show a consumer how to use your service. A how to video or samples would be creative and fun. The is also no information about the company or contact information. If your going to have black as a back ground color you should at least use some bold lines and color to off-set the richness of the color. The most eye catching thing on the page was the “create your album.” It is bright and I like how you use to colors using a fading technique. I liked how the section at the right corner changed color when you pressed on them. I would like to see them change color any time you moved the mouse on them and maybe use a more bold font.

    What do you think of the sign up process?
    The sign up process wa quick, simple and easy. I liked how it wasn’t a long list of questions and it was cool to be able to upload a picture.  

    Would you sign up? If not, why?
    I would sign up if I was interested in sharing photos with my friends but right now that does not interest me.

    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.
    I would definitely revamp the site. Add some: how to videos, contact information, info about the compnay, bold colors, tabs, and language editing.

    Visit http://linm.me. Spend no more than 5-10 seconds on the home page. What do you think the site is about?
    The site is where your friends can upload pictures of you and share them with the world.  Kind of a little bit of a scary concept.  You would have to really be able to trust your friends. There really is not much information on the site as to examples of albums that were already done, or how it works.  The home page is very basic, and just says “Here are your friends that upload images”. Does not give you a lot of information as to what the site is about.

    Now go back to the site and comment on various elements of the site.
    There really is not much information on the home page.  When you click on the pictures from last users nothing happens, it just shows you that picture.  The home page really does not tell you a whole lot about what the site is about.

    What do you find bothersome? What do you like?
    The part that I did find bothersome is that there is no information on the home page, or anywhere else on the site that tells you what the site is about. I did register for the site, and I had to upload a picture, and it just showed my user name and the picture I uploaded.  Did not give me any other information on anything else, not even how to upload more pictures. I did log out and then tried to log back in, and it did not accept my log in even though it was correct.  The one part that I did like about this site, is that I think it is a novel idea, that you and your friends could have fun with. 
    What do you think of the sign up process?
    The sign up process was very basic and easy.  All you had to do was to choose a user name, password, and upload a photo, that was it.  Not even an email confirmation was required.

    Would you sign up? If not, why?
    I did sign up, and it just showed my name, and the photo I had uploaded.  When I logged out, and tried to log back in, it would not accept my log in details, even though they were correct.

    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.
    I think that there are still some bugs that need to be worked out on this site.  The home page does not give you any information as to what the site is about.  No FAQ or anything else to let you know what the site is about.  There also is no contact button or any way to ask any questions. I did sign up, and when I logged in, all that showed was my name and the picture I had uploaded.  Although the picture looked good, I had no idea where to go from there.  Also when I logged out, and tried to log back in, it would not accept my log in details.  I think that in order to be more appealing, there needs to be more information on the home page, and maybe even an example of what you can do with this site.
