This is just the calm before the storm...[B]nothing[/B] stopped...regroup and attack.
Yeah I agree its over the top like I said in that other thread (I chuckled when I saw the spikes come out of the O on SSOs) but the thing is, I chuckled in a good way. I dont think its worth 600$ at all. Unless I had that money to just blow on a mDepict design.
One thing to note is it created an internet buzz. I had searched the term "Soundclick CSS something" and I was looking for an answer to a technical css question and on one of the links was a guy who was asking a similar question. He started off the question with a link saying "I want to make a page that looks like this "link" and.." Yadda yadda yadda, he went on about his question. But out of alllll the many profiles he could have used for his formatting example, guess which profile he linked to? SSO of all people. I think that signified something.
I guess what I noticed is that whether it works on their computer or not (it doesn't work the correct speed on my laptop) people are still impacted by it. Sub consciously I don't think they blame SSO for having too bulky of a flash design, they just assume its for the "pros" and that their computer should be faster lol.
I dont think it hurts them, and I dont deny it makes them seem even more up there and buzzworthy. But by all means, most of the top guys are there without flash, and even THE top guy has a relatively simple layout (noticed on Twitter JJ just lately got his) so all that matters is that its a level of professionality that gives the potential customer enough assumption of "trust" that one is "legit" just by the way it looks.
Sidenote: I might try to go on NewGrounds or something and find some kid that will make me some intense flash scene for like $40 bucks lol. (--maybe something that would impress EVEN dot robinson!)
