I like it, but you need an option to change it because I am really pissed at how you just fucked us 56Kers up the ass even more than you already have. And that old BLAM movie was 200x cooler than anything you have changed, pico or not. The new one sucks big fat ass.
And the music on the portal/front page should be OFF automatically, not ON
I have to agree about it being a bit of a pain in the arse for modem users.
After you've seen it once, you'd just rather it loaded faster, and you didn't have to wait so long to press buttons.
Maybe sometime in the future, you could make a 2nd version of the portal - you could have 1 'full' version with all the flashy trimmings, and animations and stuff going on, and you could have one without pictures and flash animations going on in the background and stuff.
Basically, the 2nd version would be for modem users who just want to do stuff quickly, and it would just basically be text, and links to the flash.
When you vote, you'd just get the stats in text form, and...
I can't really think of much else that takes ages to load on a 56K.
Still, if you did this, it would allow you to make loads more funky changes whilst making the site easy to use for modem users.
You could also list the size beside the Flash' name on this 2nd version, thus allowing modem users to decide what they can be bothered downloading.
