    Model and/or year? Siemens Nixdorf Pentium 2 (Old & German !)
    Type (School, home, business)? Home

    Connection:

    DSL, cable, network connection, modem, other? Modem
    Area where you have service? Are you trying to stalk me ?
    Availability of high-speed Internet services? None

    Operating system

    Windows XP, Opera, Mac OS or other - Windows 98

    Viewing the site:

    Have you ever had an issue with viewing the site and/or Flash elements? No problems ever with graphics, sometimes the Forum script can run a little slow hence lots of people double posting.

    Are you having any current issues with the site and/or Flash elements? No !

    Do they have to do with the settings on your computer?
    Well it gets really hot when i switch it to 'grill on high power', oh wait, that's the microwave.

    Favorite parts:

    What is your favorite part of Muppet Central’s site Content?

    Forum, Radio, Articles ..... Anything written by me !

    What areas of site content do you think could be improved?

    Guides - it needs to include all the other Henson shows.

    News & Articles - Needs new additions more frequently. Say when there's a major press release - rather than just reposting the release there could be a (factually based) analysis accompanying it , like a dummies guide. Also more opinion pieces (Fabdisbabe is good, and Phil used to state his opinions well back in the old days) - maybe the occasional duelling reviews like we said, people stating opinions for and against.

    Chat Room & Interviews :- I'd like to see these built up, maybe a guest chat here and there. More contact with the people who make the Muppets.

    In a numbered order of importance, what additions to site content would please you the most?

    1. Guides
    2. Britney Spears Topless Picture Gallery
    3. Chat Room & Interviews
    4. News & Articles
    5. Penguins !

    What are your favorite parts of the Flash menus and other Flash elements?

    They look very cool, lots of work go into them and it shows, wide variety of themes and characters including obscure ones. Size of them has always been very good and different effects used very well.

    What would you like to see improved?

    Easter eggs in the flash menus - maybe if people click on something in it something else happens. Possibly some Flash e-cards.

    What would you like to see more of?

    Penguins - dancing, skating, poll dancing, tossing !

    What do you like about the non-Flash Graphics?

    I've always liked the drop shadow look, and the quality of the pics used.

    What do you think could be improved?

    Well you know that guy who does the graphics ? I'd watch him, one sniff of tequila and he'll be off defecting to some Cindi Lauper fan site.

    Please write any other brief comments not covered above.

    Briefs are nice an all, but they're too restrictive in certain *ahem* 'areas' so i wear boxers but thanks for the concern.
  4. Super Scooter New Member

    That is why he is sexy and worth it.

    (you folk who don't look at signiatures, this post is gonna sound pretty bad)
  5. frogboy4 Inactive Member

    LOL! Luke, you crack me up and I needed a laugh today.

    The location portion of the Internet connection question doesn't need to be specific. Some people don't list their location in their information and it's helpful for me to know how popular high speed access is in other parts of the country and the world. Saying urban or rural UK or just UK is enough. Trying to get the bigger picture.

    Hmm, good suggestions all around so far. I think it's more likely to see Cyndi pics than Britney ones. LOL! ;)

    I really think this thread will be helpful to us. BTW, it's okay to say you don't like something. I don't mind as long as it's done with the kind of respect I have seen so far. :)
