there is alot of cool animation, but it doesnt come together that great. you should work with it a little more to make the look consistent

personally i don't like the intro page and the black backround

I will give you my frank opinion. I did not like it.
The point of a Flash intro is to amaze the visitor and give them a small preview and what to expect in the site. But all I saw was the logo "FLASHBOY" floating around with the occasional lightning storm and other bright flashes. I was left confused of what to expect when the long intro finally finished.
Also, intros should not be 2 minutes long. They should be under 45 seconds and leave the visitor hungry for more info. Your intro was 2 minutes long and practically devoid of any information.
You have to download some fonts too. You should not use Times New Roman, especially when you're using Flash. With Flash, you don't have to worry about HTML and font compatibilities so why not go with a little-known, but hot-looking font?
You need to shorten the intro, include some tantalizing pics of what you offer, brush up on your graphics skills, use more stylish fonts, and make the HTML section work. It didn't even load on my 36.6k and 800x600 IE.
No hard feelings please, I'm just trying to help.

It's ugly. That's all I can say about it. The design is lacking quite a bit. It's not very user friendly either. There's too many possible navigation areas. There should be one, mabey two areas for this, and they should be either at the top then bottom, or left then right. But that's just my opinion.

Another thing about font's:
I agree that Times New Roman is pretty much the worst font you could use. But with flash, if the text remains text, and not stretched around and stuff, you do need the font to see it. Like if there is a textbox in your .fla file, then the user needs the font the textbox is set at. But if it is broken up, then it is stored as an animation, and the user no longer needs it.
Also, the intro was boring. It was all the same. And absolutely no information was gained from it. Just "Flashboy" and "suhailkaleem" don't tell people that much, especially if they are bombarded for 2 minutes with it.

Flash is very cool and your site is well done! One thing I have noticed is that web site using flash! dont fare to well with deep spidering search engines! You might want to build a few html portel webpages! Great website want to trade links?
April 15th, 2001, 16:51
thanks ! u are the first person who said Cool site in this fourm --
email me if u really want to trade links
April 17th, 2001, 14:42
Haha... that's some funny lightning you've got there! :D
I could just barely make out the words "Your Thoughts" on your menu button. You don't have to make all your buttons the same size and try to crush words into them, you can make each button the width of the words, I don't think it will mess up your menu much, if at all.

Really Cool site
But i agree that the intro was too long and left me confused i was wondering if i was ever going to get into your site. If you shorten up the intro and make it more relevant the site will be awesome. Wish i knew how to use flash...
I think you might want to chane the flash intro on the flash site; just make it shorter and put some content in it. I also think that you might want to remove the flash banner from the html site (I don't think an html site is supposed to have flash because if the visitors wanted flash, they would visit the flash site:)).
Hey, here's an idea, just remove the intro from the flash version (you already have one intro, why have two?), and place an html link on the firdt page that links to the html site so people without flash can atleast enter your site.
Those are just my opinions. Other than that, its a great site, and I wish I could design flash like that.

hey guys !
the Skip Button is always there for you to skip the intro and go strait to the site - on then page there is a skip button as well clikc it and u will be right at my site andno need to wait for the intro to finish-
why not a html site not have flash -only because if people want flash they will go to flash site -- thats funny ? there is no such thing as html site or flash site - u can make a website which can have every thing including flash -html -asp every thing - i am currently workinga on a site which will have evry thing flash -html-asp-java- dbs -sql -xml - evey thing in order to make a beuatiful site u must use the technology dont restrict your self to html or to flash -- i think u get my point dear josh

A skip intro link could be helpful before the flash is already loaded... =P
