Findal / SOTW Reconsideration

Hey everyone,
Well Findal, the one whose entry (http://www.fndzinz.com/) was disqualifed last week because of not containing enough Flash, has sent me this response:

<FONT face=“Times New Roman” size=3>Aw man…
Gggs, thats not what I thought you were gonna say.
I ask you to please reconsider , as if it’s 50%, In really thought I beat
that and the 80% mark too. I use flash on the main page, right up to the
logo and in the menus; YES, which are repeated on every page in the html.
BUT, while there are 8 linked pages that are just plain html while using all
those FLASH menus, there are 15 FLASH Example SWF pages, 4 FLASH photo
Albums, one of which has over 400 pix, and there are 6 other FLASH examples
under the heading ‘projects’. The creel survey and Display can be added to
the list as more FLASH too. I assume that it’s evident that the 2 news
displays on main page are flash, as is the weather display.
:slight_smile:
Just as a bit of info what this sites stats are too :slight_smile:
Which shows that I serve up a majority of …swf

  File Type Report
  File Type Requests % Bytes
  .swf 23807  18.446% 47.621  47.621%
  .jpg 24719  19.153% 24.425  24.425%
  .MOV 52  0.040% 9.935  9.935%
  .php 18214  14.113% 4.633  4.633%
  .JPG 374  0.290% 4.463  4.463%
  .mp3 27  0.021% 2.737  2.737%
  .xml 5903  4.574% 1.658  1.658%
  .html 5211  4.038% 1.513  1.513%
  [directories] 2974  2.304% 1.055  1.055%
  .gif 18896  14.641% 0.932  0.932%
  .txt 11463  8.882% 0.487  0.487%
  .css 13596  10.535% 0.390  0.390%
  [not listed: 5] 3824  2.963% 0.153  0.153%

For the majority of instances, FLASH uses the php, xml,mp3,text, css and the
.jpg as content feeds.

Any way, I know you gotta make a call, but after all the times I got heck
for “So Much Flash” in my sites, its a bit ironic to hear its not enough. :wink:
<SCRIPT><!–D([“mb”,“Especially
when there is way more time to spend looking at FLASH on my site
than other
things. I try to incorperate it in different ways, replacing php
or html
script output in a more graphical manner.
I’m just a guy trying to pimp my
site and stretch my portfolio and maybe get
a job.

Thanks for
reconsidering and letting me know .

Findal

I still don’t see how using one giant Flash form makes the site any more Flash-based. Even using a Flash menu, most of his site is still HTML.

:sigh:

Yeah i agree this is not 50% Flash.

To me i see 5 frames, 2 are Flash. Thats not 50%.

The site had no chance of winning anytime soon anyway, just tell him that.

:lol: and he voted himself (80%) :lol:
