Ok, here are the rules of the road, take 2!

Welcome to Pixel2life! The administrative and senior staff works hard to provide you with the best learning and friendly community based atmosphere we can. There are a few guidelines and processes that should be followed that will make our lives - and yours - as easy as possible!

This is the General forum. Please post all general topic threads here and not in topic specific forums. Additionally, please do not post website ads/plugs or site support questions here as we have forums for those as well (click on links!).

Site Support: http://www.pixel2lif...php?showforum=6

About critiquing!

Before we start, I would like to point out that MANY posts on this forum are requesting feedback on their sites, artwork, tutorials etc... Please offer contructive criticism or don't say anything at all. We all have to start somewhere, so comments like "That looks dumb" or "You just followed the tut idiot" or "That sucks" are completely unacceptable and will earn a ban. This rule is STRICTLY enforced and is not tolerated from members or staff. So please offer constructive and positive criticism or just move on to the next thread :blink:

Ban Guidelines

1. Posting Outwar links or links like them will warrant a permanent ban. MONEY AFFILIATES, spam links and other schemes are also completely unacceptable and will not be tolerated in posts or signatures. This includes any type of point or subscription based reward programs like free ipods, domain names etc... If you get something by having members click on it, it probably qualifies for a ban. Contact an admin if you're not sure. If you want to earn revenue online, please do so on your own website and not off our backs. This type of violation will result in a warning and then a ban.
2. Ignoring staff warnings or testing patience / boundaries.
3. Racism
4. Posting information not pertinent to the thread with the sole purpose of derailing the discussion (trolling).
5. Flaming will not be tolerated here. If you want to have a "heated" discussion with other members, PM them
6. Troublemaking. Starting problems for the sake of stirring up waves will get you removed.
7. Porn, nudity, links to porn will not be tolerated. We are not a thumbnail gallery nor are we a link database. If you're that hard up, Google your way to happiness. If you have a joke image of some kind or artwork that is not safe for viewing at work, please provide a link to the item and be sure to label it ***NWS***
8. Abuse to staff will not be tolerated under any circumstances. The staff are volunteers, but they didn't volunteer to take your abuse.
9. Abuse to other Pixel2life members will not be tolerated either.
10. Using our forum to promote websites of any kind (other than posting in the websites r' us forum) will earn you a deletion and ban (not necessarily in that order). A link to your website is fine in your sig - we just don't want site plugs all over the place.
11. Posting for someone who is banned can warrant up to a site ban. Additionally, creating a new account to post if you have been banned is strictly prohibited.
12. Creating "Free" banned member threads.
13. Quoting someone, then editing their quote in an attempt to make them look bad or get them banned.


If you would like to sell an object, website, domain or your freelance services, we have classified forums for this very purpose. You can find these forums HERE and bear in mind it costs $5 per ad you wish to post.

Locking / Deleting Guidelines

1. Blatant stupidity.
2. Flaming and usless insults. This may result in a ban.
3. Duplicate threads - by that I mean creating a new thread on a topic already covered in an existing thread. Stay on topic in the original thread and you can avoid this sort of thing.
4. Discussing methods used to aid in the illegal proliferation of copyrighted material is not allowed. If you want to make a political statement by declaring your resolve in not purchasing MP3 music is one thing, but discussing methods on the distribution of such will get your thread locked or deleted. Making a habit of this will get you banned.
5. Disgruntled that your favorite drug is illegal? Email your congressman This is not the site to make such statements.

Signature ("sig") Removal Guidelines

Your signature needs to follow the guidelines posted here in the General Forum. We have people that are on 56k. (Yes, it's true!) Some viewers (including almost all staff) visit this site at work as well.

Overview of Signature Guidelines

1: One (1) Sig Banner per member.
2: These guidelines must be followed. Edits will ensue if they are not. If we need to repeatedly edit your sig we'll be forced to take other action.
3: No nudity whatsoever, obvious, implied or otherwise. Bathing suits are fine, skimpy bikinis are not. Violating this is an instant ban.
4: Sig width no more than 500 pixels, height no more than 150 pixels. This is more than enough room for your creativity.
5: Sigs must be under 60kb. There is no reason for a jpg that is 500x150 to be over 60kb.
6: No embedded sounds in sigs, not even on mouseovers.
7: Symbols or insignia of fallen oppresive/murderous regimes or terror organizations will result in the sig's removal.
8: No dynamic or rotating sigs or affiliate url's.
9: No more than 4 lines of text (80 characters per line)

We have a sig banner restriction script in place as per April 9th, 2007 if you get error messages trying to add your sig banner in it's because you haven't followed our guidelines.

Other Important Information

1. Sigs that cause extremely slow page loads due to slow hosts will be immediately removed and a warning will be placed in your sig area advising you this. Putting it back and causing the pages to load slow again will be an immediate ban. Please respect the others that visit this site.
2. Usage of deragatory terms and profanity in sig images is highly discouraged, and frowned upon by staff.
3. ANYONE caught using an image rotator/dynamic script in their signature will be banned on the spot for 1 week. No warning - no nothing. This will not be tolerated. Continued abuse will result in the removal of everyone's ability to post images in their sigs and we'll keep it text based if necessary. I'm sure no one wants it to come to that, so let's clean it up guys. Static images only please.

Below is a sample of the maximum size allowed.

The list seems long, but if you read it all, you'll realize this is common sense. Please use it, and we'll all get along with monkey love! <3

Our Forum Guidelines have been updated, please be sure to re-read them specifically the Sig Guidelines, as they have been slightly changed.
