    It's hard to convince moms and pops to sign up for Facebook, which is why I am excited about the site ViewMyLife.com. I've been doing some work for them, and think it's a great way to save and share photos, especially in a family-oriented space. You can even make a family tree with relatives!

    What do you think?

    not sure if this is spam or what....

    Here are my suggestions though:

    1) ditch the retarded ass intro thing, or at least have some way to skip through this giant waste of time loading thing.

    2) If you want to be taken seriously, ditch the whole flash thing. There's nothing about this site that makes flash the better choice than some regular html with javascript.

    3) Black background = :iough: It's not something that pulls you in and makes you want to stay on the site... also not very "family friendly". go with some lighter colors.


    Overall... decent idea I guess but with it being in flash, I don't see it taking off at all.

    As soon as i clicked and saw a poorly created beveled image with "loading..." text, i closed it.

    This isn't 1998. Forget intros and forget flash.

    Flash has its place, but not on your site. (redtube.com, for one)

    I hear ya. Frustrating to wait around, and brings me back to the hourglass icon when it used to take forever to connect to internet. I know they're working on the speed and features, so definitely check back. Keep the feedback coming!
