How does the web app look and feel to use?

The website of itsThoughtful is well designed, clean and efficiently laid out. The color scheme is primarily green and white. The site is simple to browse, and very easy to find what one is looking for. There are very little hang-ups in the flow of the site, and users can quickly browse from page to page with minimal delay. One complaint that users of the site may have is that the “Recent Members” section is entirely too big for containing information that most users will find irrelevant. Advertisements are few on the site, and the advertisements they do have appear at the bottom of the right hand table of contents, making them essentially invisible unless the user has reason to scroll down this far. Normally this would be a good thing, or at least neutral; however, given that the nature of the site is to provide users with gift ideas, seeing advertisements for products that could be used as gifts might be helpful.
