      Guidelines and Netiquette   03/28/2017

      Posting Problems:   Having problems posting your topic? Read through this: To join, you agree to our terms and conditions and fill out and submit a registration form. An activation email will be sent to your email adress, so you'll need to verify your account. After that the account has to be validated by one of the moderators. This will mean that it can take up to a day to be activated. A couple of things to remember to ensure approval: Don't use an email address in one of those $2 four character .com domains eg. xyds.com. These will be deleted and the domain added to the banned list. Don't use an email address that is within a domain with a bad reputation for spam. A Google search is run on every email address and email domain. Don't sign up with an email address that doesn't exist, doesn't work or requires the sender to answer a quiz before their email can get to you. Put your country and or state and city in the signup form. Blank forms will go to the botton of the "to do" list. And make sure that your email address and your country match, saying you're from Alabama and using a .ru email address is not going to get you activated. After a membership is activated the first few posts will be monitored. Posting spam or unapproved topics described in the agreement results in an immediate ban. The email provider and the IP addresses associated with the account will be banned and all posts will be deleted. These strict measures have been deemed necessary to hinder spam. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes, but it's not liable to change. If, after reading this, you still can't post and don't understand why, contact one of the Moderators listed here.   Topic Guidelines   Including the following information can expedite an accurate response from board members: Must be a Specific Problem or Question related to web design and development Include Code in Question (wrap with   for small blocks of code and for longer blocks   ) Include Code Author Include Extra Notes/Modifications/Attempts Include web link to page/file when possible Content Guidelines   You may not post, upload, link to, or email any Content that contains, promotes, gives instruction about, or provides prohibited Content. Prohibited Content includes any Content that breaks any local, state, county, national or international law. Prohibited Content also includes: No direct or indirect advertising or websites, forums, products, services No hijacking of posts (do not post your question in someone elses) Content that infringes upon any rights [ex. MP3s and ROMs] (including, but not limited to, copyrights and trademarks) Abusive, threatening, defamatory, racist, or obscene Viruses or any other harmful computer software False Information or libel Spam, chain letters, or Pyramid schemes Gambling or Illicit drugs Terrorism Hacking or cheating for internet/online games Warez, Roms, CD-Keys, Cracks, Passwords, or Serial Numbers Pornography, nudity, or sexual material of any kind Excessive profanity Invasive of privacy or impersonation of any person/entity Hacking materials or information Posting Tips   There are more BBcodes than there are buttons for on the reply menu. To get the full list, click "BB Code Help" underneath the clickable smilie face menu. Use   for small snippets of code Use   for lengthy snippets of code Use   if your snippet is HTML (optional) Use   if your snippet is SQL (optional) Rules of Conduct   Be nice. There's no need for calling someone stupid if they ask an 'easy' question. Keep your avatars and signatures absolutely child friendly. We have a younger audience on this forum. Keep your language appropriate for the same reason above. Do not PM moderators for help on the forum. Post on the topic, or create a new one.   Spam:   Recently, as you have all without doubt noticed, we have had lots of spam and advertisement on the forum. Therefore, we'd like to alert you as to what to do when you have found any of the aforementioned annoying messages: it. Immediately. Give a clear reason, please, if the advertising is not evident. DO NOT POST! Report, let the post stay as is, and we will get to it, meanwhile if you continue to post as normal in the other threads, it won't be on the top so long. Refrain from PMing the member. This won't help at all, as they are most likely spambots anyway. Thank you.       Images in signatures:   After thinking of users on dial-up, we have decided to enforce the following rules regarding signatures. Please pay heed to them. Respecting these rules is respecting the members on this forum with dial-up. Signature rules: No animated images AT ALL. No matter the amount of animation. Maximum image widthxheight: 300x150 Maximum image (file) size: 15kb Use calm colors. Do not use highly contrasting images in your signature, as this can get really annoying when seeing several posts from one member in the same thread. The same prohibited content goes for images as for posts. Lastly, use common sense. No lengthy signatures please. Save us some scrolling. Thank you.       Links in signatures:   Please understand that w3schools.com only exists because of voluntary work and is barely supported by the advertising littered throughout the tutorials and the forum. So, please, stop advertising other sites. DO not post links that drive traffic away from the w3schools domain - especially to a site that offers similar if not identical information. Please help support the site by keeping individuals on it. Thank you. Here are some guidelines as to what you can put in your signature: w3schools links --> allowed w3.org links --> allowed browser links --> allowed html editor links --> allowed personal sites --> allowed tutorial sites competing with w3schools --> NOT allowed sites completely irrelevant to webprogramming and this forum --> NOT allowed   Thanks for understanding, and for taking the time to read this. ~W3Schools Modstaff~

I'm sick of topics getting hijacked everytime someone changes their signature to something noticeable or notable. Discuss signatures. Go nuts.(I expect this topic to be quite popular, but I'll pin it in the beginning at least.)

Sweet! Well in that case, let's jump right in and tear yours to shreds.

$you != "welcome";

That is a logical assertion, it's like saying true;or false;It doesn't do anything, in fact a spammer might just look at that and mock it! Instead of stating the obvious ($you are not equal to "welcome"), $you should be assigned to something. Instead of the string "welcome", how about a constant? What it means to be welcome doesn't change, so it would make sense to have it be a constant.$you = !WELCOME;you are not welcomeNow, about this database business. While it might be amusing to think about a data store as being in someone's butt (your data is a load of crap!), certainly you're not interested in querying that data (I hope). No, what we need here is a way to efficiently interface a foot with a spammer's butt. I think that sockets are the way to go. So first we need to create a streaming socket to the spammer's butt using the popular smackdown protocol.$justice = socket_create(BUTT, SOCK_STREAM, AF_SMACKDOWN);Now we need to connect.socket_connect($justice, "//spammer/body/lower/pants/butt"); //make sure to enter the correct path to your buttAnd the final step:socket_send($justice, $my_boot, strlen($my_boot), 0x100);socket_close($justice); //justice has been doneNow, I need to work on how to slap someone across the net.

I hate to say it, but I agree with most of justsomeguy's comments. The variant I liked best was the *

<?php if (isset($you) && $you == "spammer") { unset($you); } ?>

Simple, logical, syntactially correct, and even more catchy.I have another suggestion:

<?php $you !== "spammer" or die('by me'); ?>

or perhaps

<?php if($you == "spammer") { die('by me'); } ?>

C'mon. Tare me and my signature down :) .*Described in this post.

I don't know, you know die just stops execution. The solution I presented above goes the extra step further of opening a Streaming Socket Connection of Justice directly to the spammer's butt, which efficiently facilitates the process of streaming our boot directly to the butt of the spammer. We could even go a step further and open the socket over a secured connection so that we can be certain that our streamed boot does not reach an unintended butt.

What's with all those signatures! Everyone has signatures about spammers or answering questions made with php/asp/cf. I guess it's the fad these days.

That's rich coming from you. I mean, wasn't it YOU who introduced this fashion (at least to this forum)? True, I was the first to follow your example, but you were THE first.

I got sick of the signature fad and just mocked you all. But, alas, the only way to do so was to jump on the bandwagon myself, so you can tear me apart too. =)

Scince no one is willing to comment and question other signatures, let me go ahead:1. smiles, what does your... um... vietnamese... part of your signature means:

Xin chào các bạn !!!CÁC BẠN VIỆT NAM ĐÂU HẾT RỒI VẬY ???
2. Choco, I'm not very knowledgeable in JavaScript and yours isn't as readable as vchris' ColdFusion one for example. What exactly does it mean? If your signature and ***, add codejunk.js to your signature?3. funkyjunky, yup. It does look like you haven't put any thought into it. That's not a bad thing, but it's not a good thing either.4. justsomeguy, who is Charles Babbage?5. Jonas, why did you removed the PHP part of your sig? Couldn't it have remained along with the York thing?

I have it saved on my home computer, so it'll be back when I am. I didn't want a lengthy signature really...

lol I was going to say the same thing...he is the real father of the computer.
I thought the father of the computer was John Vincent Atanasoff. Babbage has only designed mathematical machines (basically, calculators) and printers, and wasn't the first one either, though as far as I can tell, his models were revolutionary for the time. He could be said the father of programming, but father of the computer- no way.P.S. See the "Honors and Distinctions" paragraph of the article to understand my reaction better.

Heard of Charles Babbage as the father of computers.... Also guess "Alan Turing" is considered as an other father of computersEDIT: Oh just found that Alan Turing is the father of "modern" computers.....

Also, (one other hobby!) Charles Babbage was the first person come up with a way to break the vigenire cipher.See 'The Code Book' or 'The Craking Code Book' by Simon Singh for more about Babbage in the encrytion world.

Hey guys, I dont know if it would be welcome, but I did these for another forum, and they went down pretty well, so if you want one I'll try to make you one (tho my appearing here can be quite... intermittent). :)My barcode (userID from an online game):FrostbiteXIII.gifBarcode of your username!- Up to 16 characters are encoded (easily, anyway)- Please give your Name, PlayerID and preferred colours- How I work them out:a. I find the ACSII value of each character (eg F = 70)b. Convert this to binary (70 = 01000110)c. Then make these into lines (0 is a 1-pixel-thick white line, 1 is a 1-pixel-thick black line)d. Then put all of the lines for all of the characters together!Sorry in advance if I wander off and forget! :) BobEDIT: Also, wanted to gloat about my great FrostbiteXIII ambigram sig! :)
