Our First Flash Intro ?

Well, someone created a flash intro for us (their first attempt at SWiSH!)

OK,

How about adding one more line for all newbies as well?

Before you get started, Read the FAQS & RULES!!

Or something to that effect. Smilie

It is a good step forward. I like the flash alot. However, there should be a way to get out of it if you only have a dial up line to go straight to the site.

Pretty nifty...
I'm assuming that there'll be a "skip intro" link somewhere there for people with slow dialup and those who use intentionally-disabled browsers (for security sake, or if I just feel like using lynx).

It's great for someone whose never been, though!

Agree.... we need a 'skip intro' button and maybe a cool 'loading' graphic... some fading in and images and a little 'audio off' button.....

Yes, if we put something like this up as an intro, regular users should go directly to the forums via another link so we don't have to see flying balls 10 times a day Smilie

Maybe the moderator's Avatars fading in and out ... LOL Smilie
