Too much java on the home page caused it to load REALLY slow on my 3 MB connection. Get rid of some of the scrolling text, there's just too much going on...

Not sure what I was looking at. What was the address for it? Is there a web cam on the site?

Just click on the "WWW" button below, or http://www.micronesiamall.com. Yes there is a webcam on the site. And, I'm not sure what you were looking at either. :-)

You have a different post on this site? I had thought I posted a reponse to it. Guess it did not go.
Any ways, the site is to busy. To many things to look at. Move some of the stuff and add more content text to the main page.

Thanks Marcie and webhost1 for your input.
Most (95%) of the visitors coming to the site are non-english speaking, and from places all over the world. Text would be wasted on most of them and text will not improve the sites excellent search engine rankings. On the other hand, the graphics speak in a universal language all but the blind can appreciate. Speaking about blind visitors, I've tried to make the site accommodating to them as well.
Marcie, you are right about the slow home page load. There is more java there than in other pages on the site, but I don't think that's the cause for the slowness. Instead, it's probably the download of the realtime webcam imagery.
What I AM thinking about doing, is replacing the realtime webcam view on the home page with a static image taken periodicly by the webcam, this could serve as a link to a pop-up page with the realtime image.

You can always put one of those language conversions thingys on the site for a user to read it in their language.
Putting the cam on a different page probably would be a good idea.

Thanks again for your feedback webhost1.
Most of visitors to the site are Japanese. I've tried a translation service but the translations only make the Japanese laugh. The reverse is true too. A Japanese page translated to English is very laughable.
It may look good, but it reads like child-talk, or worse.
I'll be replacing the webcam view with a static image as soon as I solve some technical problems with the camera's FTP client. It times out too soon.

Your welcome on the feed back.
Intersting that this type of servic is viewed this way. I have those language things on my site. Have not gotten feed back on those yet. Hope someday I will.
Anyways changing the live web cam to a page of it's own I think will really help out with the main page. Let me know when you get those things worked out on the cam.
