top of a list if a response comes back quickly.

I want to be able to zoom a photo and have it come up quickly and clearly
and with good color.

Agreed - I sometimes want to contact the person or company by phone or
mail, and like being able to find that information easily. (Why, oh why
do companies have website with only an e-mail addy to contact them?)

A common list of major pages on every page so that you don't have to
back out of every page when you want to go elsewhere on the site.

Pictures of the products (or if not, then a link to the manufacturer's
website with pictures).  I like to see a colour of a fiber or fabric
before I buy.

Enlargements of pattern photos so that I can actually see the piece.

Good lay out, no music, not cutesy birds winging across the page.

I really like it when the site is dated when new items (new graphs,
products, supplies) are added.  My favorite website for cross stitch does
that.  They also have cross references and links that make it so easy to
find what you need/want.

The flip side is a site that hasn't been updated in eons and has dead
links -- pages and images aren't found or an off-site link points to a
web that's been closed down. If one is an owner but not the web guru,
one should request said web guru to periodically run a 'bot' to check
the links.

The LNS I am referring to has its own webmaster and is done professionally.
I have never come across a problem with any links.  Updates are posted
several times a week-sometimes almost daily.  It's the first thing I check
when I get home from work.  It is my favorite website!

I think some web masters have gotten lazy; stuff works for them so it
must work for everyone.

When the WWW (world wide web), the browser interface for Internet
information, was in its infancy, it was very common for web page
designers to have a corps of off-site testers to give feedback. That
probably isn't the case today.
