I really love and respect when Belizeans, especially young Belizeans,
make a mark in the business community.
That said, i really think the guys from Cuboid Graphix deserve some
props and a big shout out.
But, i have a little, how should i say, constructive crticism. Do you
remember the saying, "Not because you can do it, you should do it."
Ok, the sites you guys create are really cool, no doubt, but you guys
should really try simplicity, that is, you create pretty much all your
sites using Flash, and boy oh boy, flash wreaks havoc on most people's
browser (because there browsers are out-dated), I have one of the best
laptops money could buy, the newest versions of all browers (IE,
Firefox) and high speed DSL connection, and your sites take forever to
load, and i am always asked (when i finally get in the site) to load
Guys trust me, 9.5 out of 10 people will click away from the site. Look
at the websites of big companies throughout the world, they make little
or no use of Flash, and most of their sites are text base (really,
really friendly with Google, Ask, Yahoo...). Oh, i have clicked on www.eventurousla.com
from your portfolio page and it is still loading
the music and motion etc... its loaded now (after almost 10 minutes -
screwed up, i have to point all over the page to find the hotspot for
the nav. buttons.
Guys, on the internet 'cool' means diddly squat now, history is
repeating itself, people want things/information and they want it as
fast as possible, believe me, almost no one would wait for any of your
sites to load, and i know, i checked your hit counter and the hits are
low on your sites - ok, now the buttons work - weird.
I really do hope you know that i am just trying to help, i don't mean to
be blunt but i wouldn't want people saying, "look at these dumb
Belizeans, thinking that cramming as much java, flash, anim. gif etc...
on a website to make it cool will help make you a profit." Acutally, the
site will hurt your bottom line.
Remember Flash is absolutely cool, but that is about it, most people
aren't that computer literate and they won't even bother to try and load
a plug-in. I sit behind a computer 27 hours a day, and i ****ing hate
loading plug-ins and Flash doesn't do anything for me but **** me off
from getting to a site i really want to.
Get rid of that Flash crap and your sites will be search engine-friendly
and you will have much happier customers and will probably get more in
You should take your own advice: "A successful website depends on so
much more than merely aesthetics..."
