That's not being different in a good way, though. It's annoying and pointless. It's just another page for the user to load and waste time/bandwidth on, and it's stupid to have to click again to enter after you click the link for the site.i put in a splash page to make it different to other gfx websites, and atm im editing the theme so a few bits may look a little strange
What's your problem? I was offering constructive criticism and you start with insults. Stop freaking out when people tell you something isn't perfect, because whether you like it or not I can offer suggestions even if you don't choose to listen to them.i never asked for your opinion on my site, i have asked for people to come and take a look at my site. Me having a splash page isnt effecting you in any way. If you dont want to enter my site dont bother, i dont want people like you on my site. the forum doesnt even tell you to do everything twice and if you think you can make a perfect website let me know. The thing that wasted my bandwidth and time was loading up this page and reading the rubbish u have wrote.
btw i wish there was a button to keep ur mouth closed.
- Many readers don't like splash pages - and in some studies 25% of visitors left a site right after seeing a splash page.
- Splash pages break search engines. Since many splash pages only include a flash animation there isn't a lot for a search engine to optimize on. And if you add content to the page in comments you can be penalized for spamdexing.
And users literally can’t stand them, because splash pages usually take a long time to load and provide (almost) no navigation options — except of “entering the site”.
You clearly missed the point I was trying to make. A splash page does, in fact, require you to click again to enter when you've already clicked the URL. That means you're doing the same thing twice for absolutely no reason. But since you don't want to listen to the truth, have fun annoying all your visitors.the forum doesnt even tell you to do everything twice and if you think you can make a perfect website let me know.
Search engines will spider the splash page instead of the real content
I suppose I could keep adding examples trying to get the point across, but I think you're probably mad enough by now if you've managed to read my whole post."Click to Enter" is redundant
By visiting your site they've already agreed to enter, why do they have to do it again? It'd be like opening the door to a store only to find another door that says, "haha, just kidding. Open this door to enter for reals this time."
Oh boy, the original "get a life" insult. How about you stop worrying that I "wasted" seven minutes of my life? If you want to start debating what's a waste of time and what's not, you wasted your time making a completely unoriginal forum that won't exist in a year. At least I used my time prove an ignorant (and unnecessarily hostile) person wrong. You should be honored that I would waste that much of my time to educate you on something that might actually help you get people to join your forum. I can tell what you're like; I don't need to get someone else to confirm it for me.But you must not have a life, you put way too much time into that post.If you want to talk about what im like ask Jesse, he's known me for a long time. So thanks for taking a look at my site. And wasting my time and also alot of yours.
It's amazing how you can tell someone's on their computer all week just by seeing a few of their posts they made on a Saturday. Anyway, I think you should stop obsessing over how I spend my time. Are you in love with me or something?I cant be bothered to argue with you, im wasting my time, and ur not wasting ur time cause ur on ur pc 247 on posting **** on forums. Please stay out of my posts and dont want to know any of your suggestions or ideas, cause its obvious i dont agree with them and i dont wanna know about it. You dont even know who i am, heres something else you should know 'dont judge a book by its cover'. I could list 100 facts about you but im i havent got all day and no life.
So thanks for getting the views up on this post
