I feel really old moaning about this, but my eyes are not what they were. It is physically painful for me to look at an advert with teeny weeny itsy bitsy font and try to read it. Which is why I'm a firm believer in not screwing with a board's default font sizes/colours/faces. I say this because when I cracked open my game last week for sign ups, I had the expected influx of adverts appear. There was one that was completely unreadable because red font on a purple background doesn't go well. Another had font so small that it was literally a series of dots on the screen. Yes. DOTS!
Others were badly coded, one wasn't even linked.
What is up with people? When I ask people in a small set of advertising rules not to go screwing with the default font, they go ahead and do it anyway. On top of that, when I Ask them to hit the preview button before posting, they can't seem to do that either. So, a matter of days since I opened up the game for business, I am already altering the rules because I'm sick of fixing other people's cock-ups. I will no longer fix adverts. If they don't check, I will not fix it for them. If that advert contains a working link, however messed up it is, and they decide to post another one, I will delete the new one and leave the screwed up one. Why? Because they should have checked.
It takes ten seconds, if that, to check an advert and correct obvious mistakes.
Furthermore, what is up with the new rules cropping up all over invisionfree boards lately? 'No proboards', 'proboard advertisers have to advertise for us!'
Why? because they can't be bothered to copy/paste their advert and change two pieces of code so that it will work on proboards. Since when was changing [align=center] to [center] suddenly so time consuming? Since when did people not have time to do this? I mean Jesus wept, I did it. I have, and have always had three versions of my advert. Invision friendly, proboard/phpbb friendly and HTML friendly. It took me one minute. If you keep a copy, it is not a bother.
Furthermore, yes it is a little irritating to have to fill in a security code when we post as guests on proboards, but it hasn't always been there, and frankly, most people do not want to move to another board because it is inconvenient to post as a guest. You can still do it, you don't have to register.
Fill. In. The. Code. Suck it up, get over it. You only have to post once.
