I'm not sure what you mean by a "Flash into page". Could you explain more for me?

a flash intro page is a flash movie that comes on before your site page that usually has a button on it that says "skip intro" and maybe a button on it that says "enter". once you click it you will enter the regular site (nav buttons, homepage etc.)

I don't like the flash addons...
A flash site is ok... so long as it has all the sounds and animations done correctly...
I really dislike flash addons, that really don't fit on forums. I also dislike the music players on sites. I once visited a really freaky forum, the music played some awkward metal kinda music and there was no way to switch it off because the founder made the widget invisible.

All in all flash is cool. I am going to learn it some time soon... but like you guys say... some of those navigation clicks are annoying.

I actually love flash websites... and so as those flash intros... thats the main reason i'm currently developing one for my forum... It will be a website but with a proper redirect to important links if you do not wish flash to load Wink

- music on forum: first, when i made my forum i thought it was great... something new... but now its really anoying... all these "free commercials" really bugs my eye lol xD

So all in all... flash is great in my opinion if its done properly... (without the music, maybe some very very low volume sound when going over a link or something like that)....

Therefore i'm going deeper into flash and i voted that i love them... but if you read my comment you'll know my real opinion about them...

Too much Flash kills Flash.

The main problem with Flash is accessibility issues. If you are in one of these situations :
- Having a 56k connection (They STILL exist, even in industrialized countries !)
- Not having the Flash plugin
- Being blind and using a screen reader

...you hardly can or cannot navigate at all. For a 56k connection, a Flash intro takes ages to load, and if the "Skip intro" is directly inside the Flash intro, you have to wait until the load is completed before you can skip the intro. If you are blind or don't have the Flash plugin, all you see is a BIG object where you cannot see anything inside, so if Flash is used for a vital part such as menus, login boxes and main contents, you can't see the links and contents at all and then, you stay blocked at the homepage.

And a last annoying thing about Flash : When there are links, you can't choose at all to open the links into new tabs or not.
And also, when it comes to websites totally made in Flash, you can't bookmark a particular page at all, it's even worse than frames !

What I do not like is going to a website where the music starts. I sometimes watch TV on the PC, while doing other things and you click on someone's website and up comes the music, very annoying, it can take a while to find where to switch it off. I am not sure about flash, though.

anything with constant sound, animation, or full page flash (especially since it lags on some Browsers) is a automatic goodbye.

Considering HTML5 and CSS3 are here Flash is already in the process of being superseded by pure code and it can't come soon enough in my mind.

annoying especially in a forum because too much or even one flash object makes the forum seem unprofessional or something similar.
