Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
It would be useful if your website loaded! I am on broadband and I am still
waiting on the contents page to load after around 3 minutes....and your
frontpage crashed my PC totally :(  Afraid you won't get many folks waiting
around to see what you have to offer unless you address some of these
issues. MS Publisher isn't suitable for designing an efficient website...it
produces bloated code and slow loading pages.

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
I have tested the pages and they load in under 5seconds, if some errors
occur it must be a network problem and the crashing of your PC is
DEFINATELY nothing to do with the website.

Admittedly the page sizes are larger than usual but I have not had any
complaints from the people viewing the site so far. And I have had a
lot of hits.

Answered privately.....but if you go here
http://www.websiteoptimization.com/ you can test your site download times,
etc.

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
I'm with Marilyn, it doesn't load properly for me.  You "haven't had any
complaints", most likely because the vast majority of internet users have
other places they can shop and won't take the time to let you know when
there's a problem.  Marilyn was kind enough to alert you to a potential
problem and your response was less than gracious.  Marilyn's may not have
been what you would have liked (although I certainly didn't find it to be
rude or abrasive), but she's not trying to get us to buy something.  You
are, and your response below may turn many off... I know it did me.

Take it as you will, but something to remember about doing business on the
internet - and especially on usenet - is that what you post sticks around
for a *very* long time.

Kind regards,
Alison

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
Alison...thanks for your post in support of my comments. I WAS intending to
be helpful by pointing out that the website wasn't loading successfully for
me....but it was abviously not taking in that vain :( It seems my comments
were somewhat justified since you experienced similar problems. Oh
well...sigh.....I will go back to lurking now and mind my own business!!!!

Take care,
Marilyn

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Please speak up whenever you'd like.  We are, after
all, trying to get things lively around here.  Certainly don't let a
vendor's response dictate what you do!

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
LOL....I have never really posted to this NG as it was mostly ads but I am
unlikely to be chased off by anyone Alison.

Take care,

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
I responded to Elephant Stamps privately, but FYI to everyone else: I,
too, had trouble accessing the site in terms of loading time.  I tried
from here at the university, because that's the fastest connection I
know of.  At home on dial-up, where I do my personal business, it's
impossible to use the site.  I'm on a Mac, and had the same problem with
both Netscape and Explorer.

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
Barbara...it would appear that we all had similar problems with the Elephant
Stamps site. I also emailed privately and have pointed them to a free
service that will assess whether their website is efficient or not.  From
the little I did see of their products...they dont sell art stamps anyway!!!
More office related products!

Take care,
Marilyn

Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
I wasent intending any bad feeling in what i put, sorry if it came
across like that, i just meant i got between 10-20 people to view the
site and give opinions before it went `live' and they didnt have any
problems. It seems problems have since cropped up. I have taken points
on board and am in the midst of re-doing the site.

Thanks again for letting me know. It really is appriecated.


as ever, the internet is not the best for understanding how people are
actually saying things to you, apologies again if it seemed rude or
brash.


Re: Custom Made Rubber Stamps
Yep, very slow loading site for me as well. I'm on 3Mb high speed here
in Canada.

I can recommend NetOjbects Fusion products for website design. Easy to
learn and produces lean code, their site is here:
