As the coiner of the word "scrolliness" I will reiterate for the cacklers amongst.
Yeah, I still think the site is scrolly. And I'd like to see it not scrolly, as I've said. In places like this: viewtopic.php?f=80&t=7461
I would like to see a landing page. Not with flash, duh, because then all our I-pad hipster fans won't be able to access it. Recent stats have shown that all creative people love macs
. even if steve jobs IS an asshole
Anyyyway (sorry, porn, distraction, computer, interweb, argh!)
Here are some more analogies:
Saying splash pages are useless without changing content is like saying that houses shouldn't have hallways or office buildings shouldn't have reception areas or that the Hesse's Steppenwolf shouldn't have had the corridor and doors, he should have just been thrown straight from room to room. A well designed splash page is more like instead of heading through the automatic supermarket doors straight into a giant pyramid of baked beans, you enter into a softly carpeted Bedouin's palace and his youngest virgin daughter takes off your shoes, takes your hand, and walks you to the aisle and puts the beans in your basket for you. You see?
In other news, I would love to see something easily navigational like this
Sorry. I had an actual point to make, it's just that this website discussion gets me ridiculous. Lynne was saying earlier that Noe was a computing genius, no? Maybe he can get on board with helping update web stuff and maybe he could help make some splash that we could agree on/like? I would like to come and chat about these things. And I think chris is his mentor, so this could be good?
