General Website Development


The administrative and senior staff works hard to provide you with the best learning and friendly community based atmosphere we can on the forums and throughout the site. There are a few guidelines and processes that should be followed that will make our lives - and yours - as easy as possible! We understand that many forums allow a certain about of free-will with adult content however we do want to remind everyone that this is a general audience site that is accessed by students of all ages to help them learn, including children. We also have many industry professionals, teachers, businesses and schools using this site for it''s resources so please be aware that we do moderate all content to keep the site clean of undesirable content.

So please just be aware of the audience and post accordingly and everyone will get along without many problems. We can''t all get along, but we should all respect each other!


Should you ever have any site-related problems, please be aware that we have a large site support forum, which you can access by clicking HERE! If the help you need is not here in this help guide or in the support forum, please go ahead and post your issue or PM a staff member and we will help you as best we can.

About Critiquing!

Before we start with the general guidelines and rules, I would like to point out that MANY posts on the forums are requesting feedback on member 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.


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. Please remember this is a privately owned website... owned by ME and the P2L staff represent me. So forget about freedom of speech and please do as requested by staff. If you have a problem with someone on staff or another member, PM me about it and I will see what I can do.

3. Racism - this REALLY pisses us off be it racism of a racial or sexual nature.

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 - aka Flaming, baiting or trolling. 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. It''s fine to do this jokingly with your online friends on the forums, as long as they know it''s a joke... but doing it to get a reaction is not the way to go.

Selling on the Forum

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.

Locking / Deleting Guidelines

1. Blatant stupidity and spam.

2. Flaming and useless insults. This may result in a ban.

3. Duplicate threads - by that we 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.

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.

Below is a sample of the maximum size allowed (this sig image is 500x150 pixels and has a file size of 37kb). If you''re having trouble saving your image to less than 60kb, you can find many tutorials on saving images for web use that will show you how to compress your images with little image quality loss.


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.

Should you have any other questions about our forum or community guidelines, please contact us for more information.
