    I feel flash can be attractive... but not to practicle...

    If you're expecting large amounts of people to goto your site then I'd have to agree.. css/php is the way to go

    Personally I have a dislike of all Flash sites as they seem to require me to learn a whole new way of navigating - ok so is a gross generalisation!

    Flash in small amounts can be very good.

    Hey Blue sky,

    You will absolutely hate this site than;

    www.dontclick.it

    I personally think it is amazing, and changing website paradigms.

    Flash just will make your site good looking, but will not make visitors conveniently browsing your site.

    Flash also makes your site difficult to identify by search engines.

    I saw it quite a few months ago, and while I think the site is innovative and original, and certainly goes out of the box, after a few minutes I started to grow a bit tired. But it certainly tells you what you can do with a website (this type of site would have worked with other technologies, though, it is only easier to make it with flash)

    Can also make your site look terrible - witnes the number of ghastly flash intros that you have to click on to get anywhere
