Hi people, I recently started a new job and rebuilt and redesigned the web site to increase traffic, previously it was entirely flash. I started SEO on it a few weeks ago but I can't seem to get MSN to crawl the site. I'm not sure if the old web site had some problems or if the old web developer did something wrong before.. At any rate, any tips on how to figure out if the old site got banned? I emailed MSN, and they said that they would resubmit the site. That was a week ago. From my previous experience with MSN or Live bot, they are extremely fast. Am I just being impatient?

In my experience with MSN they have been pretty quick. I know that MSN is all about metas and code, maybe there is an issue with this on your site. Make sure your metas are at their best and make sure the website code doesn't have any extra unnecessary code like the infamous or improperly structured opening and closing tags. You could use an html validator to try to determine this.
