    Visit http://zombal.com. Is it clear what the site is about? Do you have comments about the general design and layout? To me, the site is self explanatory.  The color scheme is nice, it flows well.  It is eye catching, appealing to the senses and it makes me want to continue on.  I found it very interesting.
     
    Visit http://zombal.com/how-it-works. Does this give a general overview of the site? What could be improved? Yes, it definitely gives me the information I am looking for.  I like the way the screen automatically moves down to allow me to view the entire page.  I also like the fact that the top tabs are always available for me to view.   On this phrase:
    At Zombal there are two groups of people, those known as Launchers and those known as Catchers. The goal is to help both of these groups work together.
    I would like to see the words Launchers and Catchers maybe in a different brighter color to stand out a little better.  Possibly in the same color as they are below.
     
    Obtain a beta user account. Was this process self-explanatory? I applied for a code, but after 30 minutes, I am still waiting.
     
    What parts of the site do you like? What doesn’t work for you? As mentioned above, I do like How it Works screens.  I think they are wonderfully put together.   On the members screen, I would not feel comfortable using a User unless there was a biography included.   I tried out the Filter when finding work and everything worked perfectly!
     
    Is it clear who the target audience of the site is? I think so.  I think just about anyone would benefit from this site if they were needing any type of scientific research.
     
    Is it clear how payment on the site works, if not, why is that? Yes.  I still not clear on why credits are used instead of just cash though.

    Please share any additional feedback and comments that you have. Overall, I think this looks to be a fun yet informative site.  I believe that it will be well utilized.  I would actually like to have read your Terms and Conditions though, but understand it’s in the works.

    Obtain a beta user account. Was this process self-explanatory? I obtained my access code.  I registered using this code and the process was extremely easy.  Basic, simple to follow step by step instructions which allowed me to enter as much or as little information as I wanted.  Very easy.

    This first thing that came to my mind… lack of trust. With the comic faces, my first impression was that this is geared towards high-school level science (not PhD). I would not look for a scientist on this venue b/c I would seriously doubt the validity and the quality of the answer I would get.
    Further I would get rid of the word “outsourcing” …too negative. As a customer, I don’t care where in the world the scientists are from. I care much more about the results.
    I hope that helps! I wish you all the best. The basic concept is sound.
