My $0.02 on new site (from point of view web developer with 10 years experience):
1. Hate flash based sites - I can't install flash, not allowed (and not only me). So I see nothing. If you want to use flash that much, you have to implement at least possibility to swich to HTML based site, so everybody can see it.
2. Hate flash based sites - Where is navigation?
3. Forum - Where is navigation?
4. Guys! You succefully manage to screw used to be pretty good site!
