    I think you linked to the wrong site, that site's made in flash (and I don't see any carousel).

    No, there's a carousel farther in. And he mentioned the bear in the intro.

    BTW, I'm interested in this project and I've PMed you.

    Blech that flash is horrible. No wonder you want it redone. That website is definitely a candidate for webpagesthatsuck.com.

    Originally he/she asked to mimic the Flash behavior, from the intro fades, to their slide strip 'carousel'. They were pretty specific. I told them it wasn't difficult to produce the 'W2.0' whatever fx now so popular, or to make something look like Flash using javascript (Flash has its own, after all). I had a 'proof of concept' page up for their viewing for a couple of days. It looked just like their Flash, except it was all script, the images were reduced by 50-70%, and one didn't necessarily have to stick with the Flash design. I PMed a couple of time. I thought for sure they'd PM back and say, if nothing else, thanks for look-see, thanks for the effort. I never heard back from them and took it down from my site.

    I wonder how much anyone actually makes on these pages?

    Of course. But this 'sybil' had posted over 100 times. And to not even PM back saying thanks, but no thanks. That's what surprised me. It was just the lack of response from someone with over 100 posts, here.

    Anyway, it's just a shame.

    Someone could easily get 100 posts just asking lots of questions... 100 posts doesnt mean that they are a CEO of a software company or something. Also, even though someone has a somewhat significant number of posts doesnt mean that they are honest/kind/thoughtful.

    It's a shame, like you said, but don't take it too hard. You didn't do anything wrong. Just remember this and make sure you never leave someone hanging.

    PHP Tip: If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.

    Don't forget to save everyone time and mark your thread as Resolved :)

    I know its bad form to paste PMs here but I think it might reveal why Sybil never got back to you

    (the really? part is because I said I could have it done in 48 hours if he had all the media ready)

    I responded and never heard anything back, seems if you didn't agree that it was a really really hard thing to do, or if you one of the hundreds of perfectly good pre-made carousel scripts already out there, he didn't want to know.

    Even writing the whole thing by hand isn't all that difficult.

    I think so. Some agenda there. The core for running my script commands wasn't more than 20-30 lines of code. Moving, shrink/grow and fade basically use the same step function. You didn't need ANY external libraries. The opening script was longer. And you could reduce the heck out of the size of the images used. I got both bears down to less than 100K, and a 16 slot 'carousel' to less than 700K compared to several Meg in Flash. They looked just as good. It's possible THAT's the idea they didn't like? It's not a bad looking outfit. Their design sense isn't bad. But . . . and anyway.

    Or maybe he just stole your script since you did all the work before getting a contract

    I tend to look at javascript as being pretty open. I always attach an MIT license. But that's a very open license. It's more likely that 'Sybil', whoever he or she turns out to be, was just 'playin', with this. I don't know. Like I said. Fairly nice site, they have. But Flash is getting old for that kind of thing, compared to what you can now do with script and servers. Save a lot of download time over what they had. Again, anyway.
