Default Web Design

Hey,

Im in need of another design for my upcoming website. I'll pay 25-50 USD for it, since I'm not loaded with money nor can get much money, but I'm willing to pay for something in my needs. It just a basic design with pages to go with it. Ill also give you my FTP server name and password after so you can upload the site. I have some designs that I found that I would like it to be similar too and images and logos already made, some may have to be made. But again, I'll pay you 25-50USD for this. If you are willing to please reply and PM me.

Another thing, if anyone is good with flash and can make flash intros to sites Ill give you 50USD for that.

Thanks

Sean

Keep your money, please, these are things you shouldn't pay for. I'll build you a page in html or flash (If you want php I suppose I can ask child but it'll take longer) if you can wait ... about a week, ... I build pages pretty fast and I can do flash intros too.

Anyway, here's an example of my work (will soon go down for a total renewal, but it's supposed to be a secret so all who read this ... shhhhhh)

Sean, whatever you do, do NOT put a flash intro on your site. Remember, the vast majority of internet users are still on dialup, and flash intro's take way too much time to load. I just checked newbie's site, and 4 minutes later, the intro is still not done loading. Now, just about anytime I see a flash intro, with no way to skip, I just leave the site.

remember, adhere to the KISS principle, a clean, fast website is much better than a flashy, slow website anyday.

No, the problem is that you cannot always skip it. There was no option to skip the flash intro on Newbies site, and go to a faster loading page. And even on broadband connections, a lot of sites are slower than they need to be, because people are getting carried away with the graphics. Putting lots of flashy images on a site does not necessarily mean it is a good looking site, or professional looking. That is why a lot of professional web designers are going back to the KISS principle and making clean sites that look good, and load fast.

read up to the post were i had the preview animation!!! and check ur email!
lol, im not sure the button will work cause the animation might have to fully load for it to start and display the skip button.


probly a link at the bottom of the page is the better way.

ok .. if so and if it would have to fully load before .. then a text button at the bottom of the page saying skip would work and then it would go directly to the main page ..

Margolis m8, I have no idea what you're talking about, I have no flash intro on the sstmod-site, the main site is in flash though and I just checked it's 64kb. Add the fact that in those 64kb there's a picture of about 45kb in there that loads seperatly after the main site is loaded it leaves you with about 20kb to load. On many html pages there are pictures that are larger then that, so I think it's either your browser having a problem or the server was running slow.

[edit] btw strossos, check the Movie speed and change it to 18fps, this will only give problems on REALLy slow pc's and it makes the intro look a lot smoother

K, first draft is ready, I used some stuff from the template, but I used frames ...

I think the news-box looks a bit small though, allthough I am on a 1200 x 1600 resolution, so it might look better at smaller resolution.

Just have me know what to put on the linked pages

yea that look great .. but it does seem a bit too wider . .but again its probably because of the resolution .. if it were set to regular resolution everything will probably be spaced right ... anyways .. i have some stuff i have written up for the site, maybe if you didnt mind you would put it up . .the sites not about much news all the information will be there to stay .. it really is based more upon the forums . .but Ill e-mail you the content for the pages .. its not much . .i think . .thanks
