Rules for Layouts! (Updated: March 8th, 2005)

(Note: Recovery from before the switch to 1.A2) - DarkSlaya

With the increase of technology, and the tastes people have for layouts, the rules have been formated by the one person who does the majority of the Art Work for the layouts.

~Kaijin


1) Transparency-
By NO means should your Text Box Backgrounds be less then 70. This makes the text way too hard to read, and makes the image too transparent to acctually enjoy. Having it below 70 will give any Admin access to your layout to alter the transparency to any desired number. We Strongly suggest using 85 for transparency needs.

2) Scrollbars / Text Boxes -
When people are using layouts with an image background, they won't want to have the image loop. Who wouldn't? That gets annoying. Unless, of course, the image is large enough to not need a scrollbar/it's suppose to loop. The Textbox shouldn't be larger then 300x300 pixels. If the nesessity to resize the textbox is in order, then by all means, do so, if it'll enchance the layout look. But by no means should they be under 265 pixels. If you can't keep it above 265 pixels, then resize the background, or get a new one. Also, with your Scrollbars, do try to keep them intresting, and not just the dull White that most of the defaults look like.
Having a link to another board/site within your layout is fine, as long as it's not glaring to the point where all you see is that link. That means keep them within Linked Text. Do not put the raw URL in your layout, acctually put them within a URL Link.

3) Text and Poems-
If you are to have text in your layout, keep it to a minimum, and keep them within your Layout. By no means should text be outside of your layouts. Also if you have a Scrollbar, attempt to keep the text out of your signiture as well, to avoid making the Scrollbar appear. By no means should you have a poem in your layout. Keep them inside your Bio, unless the poem is at Max, 3 Small lines.

4) Maturity-
Keep a decent mind when making a layout. By no means do we allow any Nudity, Hentai, or any other Serious adult themes. Just like the board, punishment will come to offenders of this. By no means should your layout have any swear words, or promotion of drugs. We do not allow them in posts, nor will we allow them in layouts.

5) Width Restrictions -
Your layout should not exceed 600 pixels While 800x600 resolution users may see this as Stretching, the members who use 1024x768 screen resolutions will not. Roughtly 80% of all the users use this screen size. Also, try not to make your layouts smaller then 550 in width.

6) Height Restrictions -
Height should not exceed 600 by Default. This means when it's just sitting still. The only time this rule is not in play is if your Textbox is the majority of your layout, and you have no scrollbar.

7) Font -
Your text should be somewhat bright / light (nothing like neon lights here), and easy to read on Any background. This rule is also mixing with the Transparency rules. If your font can't be read, then the Admins will alter your layout so it is readable. Yellow Text on White Backgrounds is an example of BAD font. White text on black backgrounds is good font. Small Red Font on Black Transparent layouts is a Bad font. On the same note, lets advoid the use of glowtext. While it may look cool, it's horrible for post, and long term readings.

If you do not adhere to these rules, your layout may be deleted from the offending posts, and an Admin may take liberty to edit your layout to make it acceptable. If your layout is beyond easy repair, an Admin may delete it entirely.
