Welcome to the "Web Projects" forums. Before you post, make sure you've selected the correct category based on the size of your project (in US dollars), or whether it is a partnership or "looking for work" request instead. Observe the guidelines for this section:
To all thread starters, check your "pm" box for responses, as that's how bidders will be communicating with you mainly using. You can turn on new pm notification by going to "User CP"-> "Edit Options"-> "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages".
To respondents, avoid replying to a thread with a short generic response like "pm sent" as much as possible. It is pointless and clutters up the screen.
To respondents, don't reply to a work request with a summary of your resume. If you're not willing to spend the time to at least read the request and respond specifically to the request, then don't reply. The Web Projects forum isn't a place to get your resume/ portfolio posted on as many threads as possible, it's for the direct, human interaction between coder and client. Members who blanket the forums with their resume replies will be treated as spammers and banned.
To all thread starters, please update your thread's prefix to "resolved", when you've found a coder for your project or partnership (or wish to terminate the request). This is so coders don't waste time bidding on an invalid project. To do this, click on the "Edit" button under the first post of the thread, then the "Go Advanced" button. You have 14 days to update your thread's title.
i'll pay 900 dollars for making it and assist me.cause i would also be
helping in the process,( i can help building all the intro stuff but need someone for the carousel), money will be payed as work is given, on a
trust basis: you give work i give part of money.
contact me if interested, work must be done in two weeks , it consist
of an intro(check the bear) done using fades with queues and a main
carousel(wich is the principal part of the site)(the site is full
Blech that flash is horrible. No wonder you want it redone.
I wonder how much anyone actually makes on these pages?
Of course. But this 'sybil' had posted over 100 times. And to not even PM back saying thanks, but no thanks. That's what surprised me. It was just the lack of response from someone with over 100 posts, here.
Someone could easily get 100 posts just asking lots of questions... 100 posts doesnt mean that they are a CEO of a software company or something. Also, even though someone has a somewhat significant number of posts doesnt mean that they are honest/kind/thoughtful.
It's a shame, like you said, but don't take it too hard. You didn't do anything wrong. Just remember this and make sure you never leave someone hanging.
If you want to use short tags (<? or <?=$var) then make sure short_open_tag is set to "1". It really helps.
Step 1: Learn. Step 2: Search. Step 3: Post here.
I know its bad form to paste PMs here but I think it might reveal why Sybil never got back to you

I responded and never heard anything back, seems if you didn't agree that it was a really really hard thing to do, or if you one of the hundreds of perfectly good pre-made carousel scripts already out there, he didn't want to know.
Even writing the whole thing by hand isn't all that difficult.

I think so. Some agenda there. The core for running my script commands wasn't more than 20-30 lines of code. Moving, shrink/grow and fade basically use the same step function. You didn't need ANY external libraries. The opening script was longer. And you could reduce the heck out of the size of the images used. I got both bears down to less than 100K, and a 16 slot 'carousel' to less than 700K compared to several Meg in Flash. They looked just as good. It's possible THAT's the idea they didn't like? It's not a bad looking outfit. Their design sense isn't bad. But . . . and anyway.
