    It was introduced a few months ago (I think?) as a response to unwanted spam posts, then changed back after a time for reasons I don't know. I feel like downvoting invites negativity and isn't beneficial to a forum that is trying to foster productive design conversations.

    There were a few negative people who drove me from the site, along with the introduction of downvoting, which I'm not a fan of. I've always appreciated your comments and input into conversations.

    Hi Ahmed,

    At first glance these are some things that you can fix:

    • Gets a little wonky at smaller breakpoints (e.g. around 1030px)

    • Your "Buy Now…" CTA is a little crowded and having "YEAR" in small caps looks funny. Maybe try "/YR" in the same font size and weight instead.

    • Try left-aligning your type in the quotes. Justified type can get weird on web, creating large gaps between words, especially on smaller screens.

    • There's something funny happening with your right chevron in the quotes as well. Try this:

    .review__next:before { 
 -webkit-transform: rotateZ(-225deg); 
 transform: rotateZ(-225deg); }

    • Buy Now page reads "Free Updates … Forever"—which isn't really true. Maybe think about changing the copy to something like Free Updates with valid license" (but better) ;)

    These are some small things that you can change to make the current site better, but I agree with some the other comments that you should hire a designer. They will be able to add the polish that you need when selling a product like this.

    Good luck!
