O_o Is this something new I’ve never heard of? Is the webmaster going to send a little text file to my IP? Or is it just a really different scare tactic? It’s … interesting.
I was looking at that person’s code because I saw the fan list was displayed in some way, so I wanted to see how it was done. Not that I have to justify myself, this is just a segue into a new topic. That person used a table to display the list, which I find to be the best way, personally, because it’s just so neat and tidy, but it doesn’t validate using Enthusiast. (The “Showing…” part gets stuck in the
table tag.) I could, theoretically stick fans in their own little tables and style it so it looks like one big table, but … fifty tables on one page? Ouch.
I am yet again updating my joined fanlistings, because I haven’t done so for over a year and I keep meaning to join more anyway.
My recent gripe with many a fanlisting is the lack of a means of contact. There’s not even a way to contact the webmaster at her fanlisting collective site, or any other place she has control over. So what do I do when I want something on the site corrected, like MySQL errors, or even the inability to get past the splash page? Do I dare report the fanlisting to TFL? I hate it when my site gets on the troubles list, but I also don’t like the faulty site! I think I’ll just fall to my usual passive response: wait and see what happens.
