Shit Web Design Companies

They really piss me off. Companies like Artists Web. Just check out their services page, with the stupidly long URL. Among their services, they boast the impress claim of a "compatibility test on all computers". Well, they've got several sites live, but have never tested anything on my computer.

Also, their XHTML is NOT W3C valid, despite what their site says.

Also they've disabled right click, for some indiscernible reason.

I like how the pop-up has the grammar of an angry Chinese Restaurant chef.

Ice Cream Truck Flash

Really great animation, but the beginning scared me the most. Because I have an actual fear of ice cream trucks, mostly ice cream truck music.

Yes, but did you link to the audience's reaction to it?

I assume the overly long URLs are to help get more hits on google. Not sure if google works like that though.

I'm just installing FlashDevelop at this very moment.
So what's so great about FlashDevelop then?

After looking at these comments, I'm a bit confused!! Whats worng with them?...They seem normal and very professional....actually quite like Artistsweb's approach to web development, I think they sound pretty cool and also have a nice set of portfolio work as well. Looks to me like a no fuss, straight to the point web development company...which is quite rare to find on the net nowadays, so its refreshing to see a company like theirs! Their text on the homepage works for me! :-)

You obviously signed up just to make that post, your motive isn't as clear though.

Surely an employee of theirs wouldn't do that.. Right? :P

I have been following this website for quite sometime actually, as I like the debates you have going here. I thought it was right for me to post now as I felt there was nothing wrong the Artists web at all.

Yeah, you're right,, It was foolish of me to suspect you of something. Sorry.

Yeah, but I wasn't so subtle as you were. I just kind of blurted it out.

We don't mind you coming to defend the site, sammistry, so don't worry. And it's nice to see that you changed the text on that pop-up which comes up when a person right-clicks.
Although, why bother blocking the right-click context menu in the first place? I can still see your page source and info without much trouble, so it seems a little pointless.

Yeah I did do a little freelance work for them in the (past) and sent the guys at Artists web this link so they can take whatever action they thought was necessary. All the best. :-)

This is a public forum, the only action they can take is replying here pretending to not be involved with them... oh wait.

I'm not "pretending" to be involved with them. I "AM" involved with them...as much as they were my past colleagues, so nothing wrong with covering friends back is there? I'm sure you would do the same right? If someone bad mouthed people you know? Anyway, I'll leave you guys to it! I have better stuff to do than to banter on this pointless subject any longer. Again, all the best!

Forgive me if the following is common knowledge, but I just discovered myself.

So I was just playing around with drawing API and trig functions when I found it interesting that my .SWF, when executed, gave the illusion that the two lines were "taking over". Look for yourself.
I noticed that it looked better when I tested the move than the uploaded version does.

They say their XHTML is W3C valid, when it isn't (see my previous post), links and highlighted words are the same colour on their site which is poor design choice and makes for a confusing navigation system, they've disable right click on their site, they advertise that they're a "Macromedia Alliance Partner", even though Macromedia was bought by Adobe in 2005 (and the scheme was renamed to the Adobe Solution Partner Program).

Plus there's the fact you guys are sloppy. Fair enough use the same source code for your UK and USA sites, but at least double check you've changed everything. Last time I checked London is not in LA.

Woah, I wonder how many other website admins lurk this thread...

Hello? Is that you Ebaum/Sergey Brin/Jim Greer/moot/Jimmy Wales, et al

But seriously I bet there are some long-term lurkers. Go on, post, I DARE YOU.

At least I post tri-monthly :3

Stop being so ignorant.
1: It's not his website, It's his colleagues.
2: The website isn't "shit", it's just not to the best standard which is ironic because they are using it as an advertisement for people to hire them to design/develop websites.

Your comment was unnecessary! D:

Anyway, I'm not in a fussy mood, I'm in a great mood. =D
