never have more than three (3) userbars visible at the same time in your layout. Userbars are
not to be placed in the header, to the left, or to the right of your post. User bars may only be placed below your post. The use of the
<marquee> tag in layouts is from now on prohibited. The space above or below your post should
never be larger than the space reserved for the post itself. The post text should
always be clearly seperated from the rest of your layout. In addition to the above rule, it should
never be possible to mistake a part of the layout for the post text. The text in your layout
must be easy to read and not blend in with the background.
Failure to comply with these rules before Tuesday noon (12:00 PM) server time will result in your layout being removed.
It will be your responsibilty to judge whether or not your layout complies with these rules. I will not answer any questions on whether or not your layout is accepted.

This should clear alot of things up.
Is mine ok (if I took away the marquee)?

I find it somewhat funny that I decided to move my hack support userbars to my bio about 5 minutes before you posted this.

You should add no embeded mini-chat things. They take a while to load and people just spam them up.

Or just any flash/thing that lags. Like big animated GIFs or backgrounds that are bigger than the post itself.

That could help with people on Dial-up.Even though [marquee] is now forbidden, it's not that much of a problem.

I could have thought rules 4-7 have been implemented already.
Anyway, this should help with those annoying layouts that some users have where you can hardly see the post.
Your layout has been removed.

I still dont see the point in marquees and dial up's, and that they have to do with each other.

99% of the time, I'm on dial-up and I have no problem with marquees. --------------------

One of my old layouts got removed for something there, but I forget what. At least I now know about the rules, and I won't be confused about my layout being removed. I think there should be more strict rules. Not about the layout, but about other things.
You should also have a rule about very inappropriate things like porn.

I belive mine is ok, I dont see anything that could go against those rules. Too bad about the marquee thing though I wanted to use it, oh well.
2007-12-16 08:39:00 PM
Finally he inforces some rules 8)

What the fuck. Seriously. Marquees have NOTHING to do with dialup. I don't know what stupid idiot got that idea. A marquee tag is just a tiny bit of text that needs to get downloaded like the rest of the friggin' HTML.
The problem with marquees is that they are FUCKING ANNOYING. That's it. That's the only reason.
