My personal point of view is ksuccf.org is much better than ksuccf.org in term of graphics. A flash globe is not a good idea for your mainpage. If possible, make the flags smaller.

It's the same with me, except I can see the buttons. The website is sort of plain but not as plain as some of the websites, I have seen. The Flash makes it look interactive, which is good. I think u might need to sort the layout out a little.

Why you have splash there. It is not showing any information and still it is taking user's time.

To be honest I've never been a fan of "pure flash" sites.

I'm in Firefox, and neither of the two are centered for me (and both should be)

I would say try to separate the menu from the body a bit more in the first site.



Other then that my real recommendation is learn xhtml & css. Include your flash talents as small portions of the site rather than making it the whole site.

Flash sites have a steep learning curve, and the better ones run almost competely off actionscript, This is a solid first try, but use flash as a support tool, not as your main subject.

I agree with the limited use of Flash on sites. Flash is great to use an accent piece. The problem with it is that it tends to take over the site. I have created sites entirely with Flash and some that contained no Flash at all.

Flash is also almost impossible for search Engines to crawl. If it is not a priority to you that your sites do not rank in the search engines, then it is no big deal. But if you want them to crawl your site, you will have to have actual content in HTML format.

It would also be nice if you used something other then a textarea box to display the page information. Change it up a little bit.

It looks nice, but with some tweaks and some actual HTML thrown in, it would be a lot more managebale for both you and the viewers.

HAHAHAAHHAAHHAhhahahah

OMG... Im so sorry, but this site is bad.
But its good that you are trying.

You should use other website as inspiration, as well as looking at the code and the design. And to see if you can develop something similar or better for your needs. Its not the best way, but it will start you off.

And of course, learn as much as you can of: html, css, xml, javascript, ajax and other web languages.
