Please remove all the Flash from these forums.
Sergej, May I ask what some of your problems with Typophile and its members are, beside Flash.? ( You sure seem annoyed, by almost everything and everyone, recently.? )
I like the flash interface. Almost every browser in use today supports flash. And since so many sites implement it, quite a lot of users have installed the plug-in. I can't see why any internet user would not mind "going through the trouble" of downloading the plug-in…
However, typophile *does* work without the flash parts… I was at a conference center in the middle of nowhere last week… internet access, but the computers did not have flash installed! I surfed Typophile anyway.
I myself am not normally a fan of a flash interface, but it works in this instance. Although I would echoe some of the other requests to get some screen fonts for the main page. If not an ultrafont, then maybe just something aliased? That small fuzzy text will be the death of me.

Yep. That's true. But really has nothing to do with user preferences.
I've installed FlashBlock on most of my browsers. This has made the web so much nicer. Granted, it makes sIFR rather annoying.
My BIGGEST gripe with the flash navigation is that I can't launch pages into new tabs.
Not sure I follow Darrel. I use multiple pages and/or tabs to look through typophile.
Though I'm a sucker for simplicity in this kind of forums, I must say I have no problems whatsoever with the Flash bits. I'm experiencing version 2.0 as fluid and certainly fast enough, and I do use tabs all the time. What exactly is the problem? Why remove all Flash?
But when will we be able to upload images directly into our posts?
It was much more convenient in the previous version of Typophile, now it looks like one has to upload the image onto one's own website and create a llink to that, a much more complex procedure.
Nick, that feature will be back. Soon.
The flash-rendered navigation across the top. I can't middle-click to launch any of those pages in a new tab. Not a terrible hurdle, since I spend most of my time in the forums, but just another reason to avoid Flash navigation most of the time.
Yes, I'm not so crazy about Flash navigation for the same reasons addressed by Darrel.
Anyway the new Typophile seems great. Quite airy.
