    PM me if you think you could provide me with HTML for something like that. I'm not even a good coder but what I do code is -always- backend. So if you had a template with those styles that I could use I would be grateful.

  • You'll probably want to use linebreaks instead of new paragraphs in your references section, it looks very spaced out right now :) Shift+Enter should do the job. Otherwise, Ctrl+Enter.

    The share thing on the right make its extremely annoying to read.

    edit* I browse on a portrait monitor so thats probably whats making it take up a quarter of the text.

  • It looks like I know that templates. It's Radius right?

    Correct.

  • Honestly cant even tell if dewlance is trolling or not anymore, lol this cannot be real. Or maybe I just don't want to believe....

  • home page should have a character limit that then provides a link to "read full story" (so each story doesn't stretch it)

  • The Dewlancers will sue.... :)

  • @winston said: home page should have a character limit that then provides a link to "read full story" (so each story doesn't stretch it)

    Working on it.

    Update :

    Added submission guidelines and submission form.

  • Update (double post cause I'm awesome) - done. @winston

  • @Zen I like it!

  • about that logo did you get permission from disney for that?

    Thanked by 1tux
  • Nope, I'm happy to wait until they send me an email then I'll post it as a fail.

  • LoL!!! classic!!! Love it by the way. Some day I will probably end up there for my views on ssl and such. But hey as a now defunct advertising agency told me. "any news with your name in it, is good news"

  • ^_^ remember that not everyone we post about should take it personally, lets all admit a fail is a fail. If you do get posted it isn't some sort of vendetta. @24khost's post reminded me, that's the type of mentality which is great to see.

  • Hey, I am not afraid to admit that I see things differently than some others. We are all welcome to opinions. I admit my opinion is not the popular one. It may not even be the correct one. There are bigger fails though than somebodies stance on ssl. Things like fraud, Dewlance, all sorts of bigger issues.

  • Did you purposely make your logo ugly, or what?

    When you find that perfect VPS, KEEP IT.

    It was thrown together by me in 10 minutes, as a joke more than anything. Hence the Goofy. It is being formatted as wide-stretch by WordPress which is something I've ignored. I'll see if I can get it fixed up, either way I'm open to someone designing something a little better, but for now I think its fine.

    Can you do a web hosting success too? It should work both ways.

    Already planned. Will probably be listed on the same site, but we need to keep the ratio fair so we'll work on fails first. (easier to find successes than fails)

    Today's success can be tomorrows failure.

    @MikHo Try now, I have been playing with the permalinks. sorry.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • TazTaz Disabled

    Update: Permalink added.

    @Zen and @SimpleNode I think we can create a separate page/post with quotes. No need to add additional plugin/code.
