I had a discussion with nimda concerning my idea of adding buttons linking to member sites on the left menu. He raised some very valid points.
If I allow everyone to supply a URL to a button and add it,
- It will look like a bunch of ads and take away from the attractiveness of the site by spoiling the colors & style.
- Many of you have sites located on free servers that don't allow linking of images.
- Since the graphics would be located all over the web, it will cause the page to load very slowly.
- Many of you may have no clue how to compress a graphic to a small size, which will also cause slow loading times.
I decided to still link to member sites, but I will host the graphics on the same server as the logo...that solves problems 2 & 3....and I will make the buttons....that solves problems 1 & 4.
I already made a button for every member with their "name" on it, now all I will need is the URL of your site. Some of you won't need to supply this, as I already know where the site is that will be linked to your button.
Any member that has a site and wants a link, please click the comments link below and leave a note with the name of the site and it's URL.
