New Site Idea?

Postby Zach » Sat Oct 16, 2004 2:25 pm

Have a look at this:


http://www.stmp.nl/bts/


What do you think? Notice the picture, the head will move, and a little tongue will flicker out! You can also turn off the sound effects with a single click on the volume icon. Basically, it's the beginning of a flash website, and is being inspired by my favorite artist in the world, Praful (pra-fool). www.praful.nl

I think it would be neat but for daily users it may get annoying and take a while to load.

Very classy! I like it, but I'm the newbie here, so I'll defer to those who have been here longer and have more invested in the look of the site.

okay i just looked at it again and i really like it so i say do it. as long as there's still lots of pictures it will essentially be the same. it's them that makes the site anyway. as long as we can have avatars i'm happy.

Zen brings up a good point - will moving to the new site cause any other changes (loss of certain features)?

As far as the design goes, the newer one looks a lot more, well...new. More 'professional-looking' as well. Flash is good.

I don't think there would be a loss of features, like what?

Take a look here : www.praful.nl

See if that moves slow or fast for most of you...that might be how it might turn out.

Dial-up internet users may not like it as much. I'm one of them, so I can speak from experience. Just something to keep in mind. 8)

i think the new site looks great. thats flash right? the only downside would be for the dial up users so its more of their decision i guess. if they dont mind then i would say go for it!

Zach, you make the site yourself? And what about the flash? You too?

While I have a cable modem at home and it likely won't be an issue to me, I imagine the speed might bug me when using my pc at work to visit the forums (which I do more often than I should be :) )

That is a gorgeous skink you got on the homepage Zach lol!! Lissa is blushing. As for the idea of a new site, I really liked the look of that one, it was more sophisticated, more professional looking, like some of the other forums you see. Even though this site is great, if there is newer technology out there and you don't mind putting the time and energy into making a flashsite, than I think the phrase "what you get out is what you put in" comes to mind. Overall, the site was more attractive looking, as far as speed problems go I didn't have any but I can't speak for someone who is using 56k like Edward. I like that you are using a poll in order to get our opinions on the issue Zach. Overall nice job though. :mrgreen:
