The New Year Mission!

Post by Enigma » Thu Dec 11, 2003 1:08 am

The New Year Mission!

Have you been helped by these forums?
Would you like to spread the word in order to help others?

If the answers to both those questions are "yes", which they inevitably will be, then following is information about what you can do.

The Aim

By promoting the forums on your own webpages, there will be 2000 registered accounts by or on 01 January 2004.

The Method

Our Banners and Buttons

At /banners.php you will find a page containing banners and buttons that you can use to link to the website, with a variety of sizes and colours in order to best integrate with the design of your own webpages. Beneath each graphic we have provided you the code to put the banners and buttons in a webpage.

Ideally we would appreciate it if you could upload your chosen graphic to your own webspace, changing the value of the image 'src' property (find "<img src=") to the URL where you have uploaded the image, however if that is not possible then it is permitted for you to hotlink the image from the problempages.co.uk domain.

Your Banners and Buttons

Fancy taking things a bit further? Why not make your own banners and buttons?! You can send them to us so that we can consider making them available for other members to use too. E-mail your submissions to banners@problempages.co.uk. Please DO NOT post submissions in this topic!

The only restrictions on your designs are that they must be in either the GIF or JPG image format and no greater than 7000 bytes in size. We will accept the PNG file format, however we will most likely convert your graphic into a GIF or JPG. And lastly, please do keep your graphics in line with our rules and regulations, no adult content or profanity will be accepted!

Text Links

In addition to or instead of utilising graphics to promote the forums, you could use text links. Create your own slogans and link them to the homepage, and please DO feel free to submit your ideas to this topic.

Notes

When linking to Problem Pages please always link directly to the homepage and not the forums. Finally, note that by submitting graphics to banners@problempages.co.uk you agree to license the use of those graphics elsewhere on the Internet for the purpose outlined, and your submitted graphics shall remain your intellectual property.

If you have any questions about this project or how to get graphics or links on your own webpages, then you can post those questions in this topic.

The Results

Results can be found later in this topic...

We need 25 members to join each day! Get all your friends together... and give them an ultimatum... join problempages.co.uk or don't talk to me anymore! lol
When you reach for the stars, you may not quite get them, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either.

Just remember to keep smiling!

Currently we have 1912 registered users, and there are zero more days to go.

1912 is not a bad effort, however the target hasn't been reached! Nevermind, let's keep spreading the word about the forums...
