    uh well

    You must be new to the Flash world, because this site is pretty old. It was cool than, still pretty good though.

    absolute bs, why are people so obsessed with comparing things to 2advanced?? I see absolutely nothing on this site that was ripped off 2advanced, or even inspired by 2advanced. There is a bigworld of design out there beyond 2advanced, take a look at it.

    If people are going to make make comments like this I'd like to see them justify it.... anyone can walk into a thread and say, 'ray of light rip off' and leave. Either back up your comments or don't make them.

    The triple octagon thing - just like the highersource music site. The colors and the backround all blurry with the geeometric shapes./ The top and bottom with the whole "appearing from your computer" thing.

    Thesse are my opinions aversion, sorry if you don't like them.

    not denying they're your opinions i just don't understand how any of the things you've stated above are linked to ripping off 2advanced and no other designer or company in the world.

    do you know for a fact that this site didn't use octagons before highermusic (i guarantee you this site has been around longer)? do you know who used octogons first, was it 2advanced? No, and it doesn't matter because using octagons on a site is not ripping anyone off! Whether it's 2advanced or anyone!!

    none of the things you've stated above are exclusive to 2advanced, none of the things above were first exhibited on 2advanced in the design world; and none of the things you've stated would ever rank as ripping someone off in my opinion and, unless i'm very much mistake, a legal opinion.

    there's a huge world of design out there, just because 2advanced is one of the most popular sites and (in my opinion) one of the best, does't mean every design element is a reference to them, polygons or blurry backgrounds included!!


    look at your fav site, studiocmd, look at those abstract grey pointy shapes in the background, looks exactly like an experiment johua davis did on praystation to me. Does that mean they're a rip off? no! does that mean studioccmd is less of a designer? no!

    but you would never think that of studiocmd would you? it's only when people see something that vaguely relates to 2advanced that it sets of the special gland in the brain that secretes the words '2advanced rip off' into threads....

    no designer is a island.

    ...

    Uhh, didn't xeofreestyle come out before highsource music??

    Seems kinda tough to rip a site not even created yet.

    Hey everyone, let's lay off of 2Advanced. I know we are all jealous that we can't be like 2Advanced but that's okay...

    Let it go. It's okay... just let it go.

    Let's do an exercise:
    Take a deep breath and say to yourself, "2Advanced was yesterday and xeofreestyle is a rip-off of company _________"


    If we all work together on this we can get through this phase. Come on, everyone. Stop comparing it to 2Advanced. And Aversion, Bravo... I couldn't have said it better. If we had more people like Aversion, this board would be a better place

    *kissing up to moderator... kissing up to moderator. LOL*
    hahahahahahahahaha.

    ...and you know wht else 2Advanced didn't invent?
    Arrows!
    We should have a "read this before posting in coolsites" thread mentioning Aversions above comments along with the main sites that seem to keep showing up that stays at the top! Like the Boardroom guidelines.
    i.e. 2Advanced, xeofreestyle, whoswe, etc.

    I don't really like the site.
    It looks a bit messy. (Like the techno though)

    after looking at the comments in this thread how can you say that?

    obviously you're not.

    I've never seen either of these sites - 2A or xf but they
    both kinda feel like they could be from the control panel
    of Star Trek or any other sci-fi production.

    Both have their merits, I prefer xeofreestyle composition
    a little more 'open' - too many rectangles/squares in 2A it
    gets restricting and looks more corporate; supplies less intrigue
    to look further.

    :I should say at this point I haven't gone into great detail
    to follow all links and discover all the content, my views
    are based on what I'm presented with at first glance:

    I do find the font contained in xf hard to read and the overall design suffers from a 'over designed' feel.
    Where 2a has very legible text and a lot 'cleaner' in it's design, but hey?! why not introduce some more color.


    Sorry for the comparison, i know we are supposed to be talking about xf but I thought I'd jump in with some fresh comments.
