    It's purely down to the colour scheme.

    It really is a mystery why a forum dedicated to megaman isn't popular, isn't it?

    If I had to summarize, I would say that it was the first robust flash resource on the net. It filled an area of demand at the time and built up a large user-base. Once that happens, forums tend to roll on for a long time with a life of their own.

    Largest Flash resource at the time, coupled with a huge community, it just cant be beat when you are really looking for help.. on a WIDE variety of topics..

    The collective brain trust of Flashkit.com is a HUGE 'crutch' for me.. Ive grown to be dependent on Big Yeller`.

    Keep in mind too that the site was way different in the early days.

    Dude, your forum looks like its been around for a few weeks.

    I joined flashkit in 2000, and it was really busy then.

    That's one reason this forum is so exciting compared to yours. I can think of a few more, but I'm not that cruel.

    1) It got popular because FLASH got popular?
    2) And the free toaster.
