They probably complain about the use of Flash, which is good for creating animation flicks, but not efficient websites.

Edit: Although that is one of the better Flashsites.

Yes, all of that. I personally don't like unnecessarily long load times so a bunch of stuff can zip around the screen, creating more visual noise pollution. Good design is difficult enough to achieve without adding the superfluous.

The loading time is like 10 seconds for me. Some people need a better computer, derp.

10? I think you should get a better comp then :wink: :lol:


EDIT: Is it only me or is the font (i.e when I hit "create a playlist") really hard to read?

My comment was directed at Flash sites in general regarding the ludicrously long load times. It's refreshing that the uNk site loads quickly, even for me. But your comment about "needing a new computer" actually reinforces my argument. Getting new hardware and/or a faster connection is an option for many people (including me). Remember, the visual impact of a site is only one dimension of design. Good web design is also accessible design.

Website design progresses along with computer technology, even though its not always practical, computer upgrading is neccesary if you want to smoothly browse the internet; over time.

If anyone disagrees with the quoted statement, I would like to point you toward INW, who uses the equivalent of a TI-83 (Silver edition at best) calculator.

UNK: The website looks good, I think it is a little overdone though.

Thanks for pointing out the text issues. The font had gotten mapped to something weird. It should be fixed now. With something much more readable.

That. Plain HTML loads faster (yes, Liz, I didn't need anywhere near 10 seconds to load this), you can select it, scrolling works properly, much snappier interaction, can use tabs, always predictable, feels better, etc. But Flash is just... Flashy. It's really meant for games and the occasional animation.

AI, clear your cache then. It won't show up as fixed until you do so. :D

The fonts do look better here now. Although in some cases I just suspect they're just too small. Also would be neat if it would respond to my forward/backward mouse button clicks.
