    I like it, very neat. I really like trying to catch that fly with my mouse . Don't see the point of the splash page though (I never do) and it seems to take a lot of time to load, other than that it is very well designed and the colors look great. Nice job!

    Nice work. Only complaint I have is the pop-ups that the "Facts" page produces. The band member profiles would look good in the original site. Also, "Members" may be a better title for that page then "Facts". I was expecting to find some fast facts on that page. Nice work, welcome to WDF.

    Hello folks!.....thanks for the comments....
    The splash is about 120k, and the main site is around 150k or so......so I am going to put up an html version when the flash version is complete. ( for slower connections )

    Also, the "facts" page will eventually have just that...facts.
    the site is still in design stage, and the text is only there for now.....but eventually, what you will see first is a photo of the band with the facts of the band...music style,history,bio's,acheivements etc.....you get what I mean.....I have the popups because the facts page will have its own scroller with facts on the band.....with the graphic of the band, then the visitor will click each members image to get their bios, the poup allows me to have more "content" up but in seperate files to help load times....plus I like graphics alot, and wanted this site to be "graphic" heavy!

    thanks again for your comments!

    Hey DanielOliver ,

    the Splash is there for now in Flash.....but it will be replaced with an HTML version eventually....with a HTML or Flash site option....

    The most important use of a splash page is if your site has an option of HTML for slower connections and Flash version for Broadband.

    Wich this site will have as soon as the Flash version is complete......The Flash page is there now so visitors will get used to the look on entry, and become familiar with it...for when I do add the options......

    Thanks for your comments....

    Yeah, I like it too.
    But did you know that the preloader takes 5 second to get to 100% and it stills needs to download at least 100 kb?
    No idea why.
    Keep going!
