What Are Your Prices?

That depends largely on what you want. Contact us with a description of your needs and we'll provide you with a price breakdown.

Do You Work with Clients Outside of the DC Area?

Certainly. We work with clients from all over the world. Physical location is no obstacle.

Why Are There Broken Links on Your Site?

In the site proper, there should be no broken links (if there are, we'd very much appreciate it if you'd let us know). However, we also post "works in progress" in our Portfolio. Since these are unfinished sites, links will occasionally lead nowhere.

Why Doesn't Your Site Have All Kinds of Swoopy Bells and Whistles?

We don't feel that it needs them. Our philosophy is that sites don't need special effects to be useful, and that keeping sites--particularly commercial sites--fast and clean is a boon to users. Can we do animated graphics, dynamic content, Javascript popups, and all that other stuff? Certainly. Will we put them on your site if you ask us to? Of course--you're our client...but we may try to talk you into an alternate solution first.

I Want to Become a Famous Web Designer. Will You Tell Me Everything I Need to Do, Help Edit My Work for Free, and Throw Extra Work My Way?

Probably not. However, we'll point you to some resources to get started: HTML For Dummies by IDG Press is a good general reference work (despite the name), as is O'Reilly's series of books on Web development. For a quick HTML reference on the Web, check out www.blooberry.com. There are a number of newsgroups devoted to Web development. Check out comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html for discussions of the subject and free critiques of your site. A good way for beginners to get started is to do community sites (your high school's, perhaps, or a local youth center) cheaply (or for free). Once you have a few sites for your portfolio (with links back to your site on their home page), list your site in some search engines.

So, Um, What's with the Moose?

For lengthy and near-inexplicable reasons, a number of stuffed animals have become important in this venture. One of them, a large-nosed moose, made it clear that since the Webmaster position was filled, he wanted to be the Webmoose. The rest, as they say, is history.

Are You Affiliated with webmoose.net, the WebMoose Link Checker, or Other Mooselike Sites?

No. These sites and/or products have sprung up independently of webmoose.com. There seems to be some hitherto-unexplored correlation between moose and the Internet. This might be a good thesis topic for somebody.
