Greetings from North Carolina!I'm a senior at high school, who plans to major somewhere in liberal arts. But before that I was very interested in Web Design. The reason I'm here is because of something called the Senior Project. It is required for me to graduate, and the basic idea is to get the students working outside of a study/research oriented environment and have us contribute to the community. Give the students a stressful stretch.My topic of choice: Web Design. They do not want people creating web sites for their product, but my subject being what it is that is unavoidable. My product keeps on changing, I hope I just get one of them done before it's due in 2 weeks!! Anyways for common ground: I like Final Fantasy, Stargate, Visual Art, compelling plots, language, culture, english, tea....I'm Thai and Filipinooh and my brithday is on May23

Hi. I'm an avid learner and I became interested in learning web-development over six months ago. HTML and CSS fascinate me, but I confess that I have found Java Script a struggle. But I refuse to give up. Anyway, it is nice to find a place where I can perhaps get some answers to my questions. I look forward to this new branch of learning.

umm...after taking my project in another direction I won't actually need much help here. But I don't like to give up something like this. Even if I feel unknowledgeable around here (I only know html, and a smidge of css).@abs: I don't know. There probably are people like that, but I'm not one of them.

My username is I Am Java. Got the name around 6 years ago when I first started playing RuneScape. I know HTML, CSS, a little JavaScript, Visual Basic and PHP. I plan someday to be a game programmer. :)

Hello W3schools! I am Alien. I am a beginner at web design. I find it really fun and interesting but sometimes really hard. If anyone could help me out on what I should learn first. I've already learned HTML and a little big of CSS from this site. The others I find a little difficult. I would really appreciate it if someone would help. Oh and one more thing, for some reason I can't access my PMs. Someone sent me a PM, I don't know who did, but I got an email and a link to the PM but it said that I'm not allowed to use the messenger or something like that.

Welcome Alien! :)err...I dunno about the PM. I'd say be careful about them because I got an email from someone with the username beginning with an m. THey said they needed help so I clicked the link was redirected to porn site. I didn't have a happy expression, I pity the person.hrm, I just just checked. Doesn't look like I can use PMs either....Sounds like me and you are at about the same skill level. :)What I'd do is find something to design. The best way to learn html is hands on. Actually I think I may have something for you. And since I can't send it via PM I'll give you my email. Once you have it post back here again so I know and can get rid of it in this post please. holyjellydounuts@gmail.com

Hey Trotun, thanks, taller than most people i guess. Its actually nice because I never look down at anyone. I play basketball - behind my dorm in the fenced in court. I'm a senior next yr at my University. One more year and i'm done with this college. Looking forward to be free and independent and working. Graphic design is my major but my real hobby and hopefully my career one day is drawing and illustrating characters. I'm really into drawing now. i draw almost everyday. Yeah I got a DA account, don't have that much up but i do have some pencil portraiture on there. Its deviantart.com/artistdanAwe majoring in English are you? I sure couldn't do that. But english and writing is great. I always needed a proofreader "wink"Yeah everyone else in WV is a hillbilly or a hick. I am moving out of WV. yeah NC aint far away. I have driven thru it. You got to look at my friends art, haha, No I'm not Jeremy but he is. My name is Dan, hence the name Daniel Lucas on my introduction. Lol, not trying to hide my real identity. I didn't write that bio, he wrote it. I was just putting it in there to get some content into that page. I've only done 3 websites in a semester. I'm on the third. Would you mind rewriting the bio? I'll update it if you want to do that, but you don't really have to do that. Well now that we've established that I am Daniel Lucas we can continue to make websites. its no prob at all, i just thought it was kinda funny. Anyways - peace

You are really good at drawing realistic portraits, and even with all the angles and some distortion. LIke your latest update jacksl. "Girl Portrait" is my favorite, I'll have to comment on that once I have the time.hehe, I mentioned that to my tour guide at Open House and she referred to me as a brave soul. I understand it being hard, it's just the people who can understand numbers and not letter than just amaze me. Like many people I know math is another language which I'll never comprehend.I'd be glad to proofread every now and then. *nod*oooo, okay got it now dan :)maaaybe I'll edit it some. But right now that is dubious, my senior project date is closing in. It's exciting, but frigtening 'cause I've got so little done. ha! Edited by Trotun

Hello boys and girls...Had the urge to learn the proper skills to make serious webpages recently, and scoured the web for information... didn't find anything quite as complete, but at the same time easy to understand, as the w3c schools stuff. I managed to get apache going with php and mysql (even though none of the auto-install distributions worked and i had to set them all up manually :/) and combined almost every one of the "lessons" in each of those sections to create a single page demonstrating each of them :)Suffice to say I've got some ideas of what I wanted to make, and now I'm going through revising my html, then onto javascript and xml! :) Thanks a bunch to whoever wrote these things and decided to make them available to all and sundry- Alex

Trotun, THanks man, I love drawing. probably need to draw more than I do now. Drawing portraits is fun because you are getting someones facial expression in a 2dimensional surface. While it is very time consuming with my method of drawing it brings a mode of relaxation.
