  1. Hello everyone,

    We have just created a Flash website, and are about to launch an html
    version of it. I would greatly appreciate all the specialists'
    comments on this work! Please fire away with all your remarks and
    suggestions, whatever harsh they are. I will be thankful for all
    posts.

    Many thanks,

    A completely Flash site - that's mistake number one. Stick with the
    HTML Version.

    Some pages are taking 5 seconds to load on my 500kb+ cable connection.
    Imagine how long it will take on a dial up.

    The index page asking to install Flash is pointless.

    When I refresh any page, it takes me back to the long, pointless
    introduction.

    What's with the play button (arrow) in the lower right corner of the
    intro page? It just restarts the animation instead of bringing me to
    the next. Very confusing.

    Web Design - "...our professional programmers will guarantee to increase
    your search engine visibility..." Not with the utilization of Flash!!!
    You should be setting the example by NOT utilizing Flash for navigation
    and text presentation and discourage it's use by potential clients.

  3. Thanks a million. Everything is right to the point! I am currently
    working on the html version, and will be asking people to choose a
    version they want. The buttons at the bottom - also true; i was
    thinking of getting rid of them! Thanks again.

    I don't think too many people will be patient with the loading pace of all
    the fancy animation and bells-whistles junk. To be frank, that site is
    going nowhere.

  5. it tells me that I need a plug in (whatever that is, I just an ordinary
    customer who would like to spend some money on good web design, and I
    don't want to be bothered by techno-speech). So you are telling me that
    I need a plug in? How dare you! I believe you don't need customers, dude.

  6. Cheers guys,

    So the Green Man is definitely going! the London bit will be
    shortened, and will ask for either html or flash. that's the way
    forward.
    Many thanks for the comments.
    Any more comments apart from the green man will be most appreciated.

    Actually he is not green but never mind. Your Flash skills are
    obviously very good. But be careful of the HTML and CSS, this is
    no good at all, look:

    <http://members.optushome.com.au/droovies/pics/greenman.png>

    <div style="text-align:center;width:420px;position:absolute;
    z-index:50;float:left;border-bottom:solid #000 1px;">
    <img src="enter.jpg" alt="Web site design oxford" width="364"
    height="567"></div>

    and then you put in text that can be any size that the user finds
    comfortable using browser settings and/or commands?

    Perhaps here would be the perfect application for the 'vector
    simulation' technique of em sizing your image in the css, leave
    out px dimensions in the html. Given that there can hardly be
    much deterioration in picture quality with a 'cardboard cut-out'.

  8. The "way forward" is to present the HTML page. If I were presented
    with a choice between HTML and Flash, I'd simply forget about it and
    go somewhere else. PRESENT THE CONTENT in HTML *immediately*. Don't
    make people make a choice before they get to the content. Then, you
    say, if users already have the content, why bother to create the Flash
    at all? Funny thing; I say that, too...
