      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~

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.
Anyway, Mr. Hewlett and Mr. Packard 'stole' a concept which they were invited to fund (if I remember correct), without giving credit.I've never used a HP device since I foud out about that. Computer history 101.Fermat, if you want your signature be shredded... I see a number of languages which are way over your head (right now) and aren't really urgent if you first want to design a good user experience.I see serversided script, clientsided script, programming language, style language... but if you want to comply with web standards, ECMAscript, DOM, HTML, CSS and (perhaps) XML will do great. (and ofcourse PHP/SQL for transferring and storing data) You're probably not even going for the XMLHttpRequest (aka AJAX), eventho you master everything you need to know to learn that. Your signature tells me you're going for the complicated alternative, which is likely to result in an over-budget page with less-than-intended quality.Hm... don't know if I'm shredding your signature, or your ambitions ^^; anyway, what goes around comes around, so go ahead :)

Your hunch was right - we do not allow advertising especially as a post about another forum in a topic so completely unrelated.I'd say sorry, but I'm not, please read our rules.

Thanks for your feedback. My statements are justified in that it was one of three similar posts by the individual. that have since been removed. The "rudeness" is subject to the individual who interprets my statement. I prefer to label it as "blunt" or "cutting to the chase" or better yet "blatantly honest". Either way, I can understand how people see it as being rude.I did say "please" :) plus, this post saw no light for over two months and the bump is not even really related to the original subject - just I am guilty of the same right now.:)

I'm not sure if this is relevant, but wouldn't it be *somewhat* significant to, maybe, post the signatures on the signature thread just so people can't say "oh I didn't read the signature rules"

lol I was going to say the same thing...he is the real father of the computer.
I remember the first computer courses I ever followed where from a certificate called babbage over 10 years ago, back then we learned the Charles Babbage was the inventor of the computer as we know it today (as a electronic machine).However the Chinese had computers before we had our modern alfabet sinds a countwindow can also be considered a computer.

One Note: So far, my budget of £0.00 has not been broken.

I think that your signature image is huge.
Too huge, and the colours quite an eyesore. Please shrink/preferably remove entirely.

Just because it makes your retinas throb and will precipitate another end-of-the-month bandwidth crisis? Sheesh!

Where do I start . . .
  1. can't stand image signatures at all - but the majority rule permits them here
  2. way too big
  3. don't understand why one would want to advertise they are in training
  4. doesn't show any extraordinary skill - if it was art, I'd be impressed but still disapprove of its use in this manner
  5. there is a place for advertising/self promotion - your own website
  6. did I mention I can't stand image signatures?
  7. maybe I could put it this way, any image signature, especially this one, is a distraction to the text/threads people come here to read
  8. and much much more...

Skemcin:You really need to relax and get in touch with your feelings. What's really up with you and Xalor's sig? Some repressed issues with your father? Maybe someone hit you with a blue and green towel?Come on, man, let it out. We're here for you.

Look, if someone asks for an opinion, I am entitled to give mine. I, otherwise, do not make it a habit of sharing my position on matters unless I am asked by several people, asked several times, or feel rather passionate about the topic - hence my reply here. If you want to read my post and interject some attitude on my part - that's your disposition. I did not make any personal attacks on him, I did not insult, degrade, or belittle him in any way shape or form. I offer blatant constructive criticism. And I do not appreciate you instructing me to relax. You, however, have decided to get personal by bringing in my family (particularly my father) by insinuating I have repressed feelings - that is inappropriate and you need to make sure you refrain from doing that in the future.As for the signature, you ask "What's really up with you and Xalor's sig?", didn't I make myself clear already?

FWIW, I really was trying to be funny. So over the top, I believed, my comments could not be taken seriously. I guess I was mistaken. Skemcin, I apologize publicly. And now I think I'll take a little vacation.

Your reply is worth alot. Just add some emotion icons so there is some indication of your mood. Just one smiley face here or there is often all it takes to understand you were joking. :) if I ended this with :) you would think I was pissed, when I'm actually not. A misunderstanding, is a misunderstanding.:)P.S. No need to take a "vacation"

I got the joke at skemcin even without emoticons, but only in light of having just read the other post with the "retinas throb" and "bandwith crisis" being so over-the-top this had to be the same. Especially the "someone hit you with a blue and green towel" part was hilarious. :)But yeah, emoticons go a long way. :)

I guess I was blinded to humor because of my blazing distaste for image signatures. I apologize for what I can see now as an over reaction to an otherwise harmless continuation of humorous posts.
