|...from your moderation team.
Just so you know, one of the rules here at Planet Furry governs your use of banners on posting. While we definetly encourage you to post a banner, for bandwidth and legal purposes, we must insist on certain rules regarding size and content.
1.) Your banner may not exceed "normal" sizes.
Q.) What do you define normal as??
A.) Well, we define "normal" as no larger than 486 pixels (width) by 60 pixels (height). This is the standard banner ad size seen on most websites.
2.) Please do not use img tags to directly link to any pictures that you cannot claim ownership of, or cannot prove you have permission to link.
This means that if we ask you for a copy of the permission email or other proof that you're ok to use the image, you must provide it. This is to prevent "bandwidth theft", and other no-no's of the furry fan art or anime art communities.
3.) No "Not Safe for Work" images. This would include anything your boss would at the very least "counsel" you on in the form of a written or verbal warning. For those of us that ARE allowed to use the internet at work, we are constantly reminded that our usage is indeed MONITORED, and subject to evaluation by our overlord masters... ...er supervisors.
This isn't a particular crackdown or anything, just a quickie reminder to you guys, gals, and alien beings of indeterminate gender brought to you on behalf of the administration and moderation staff of PlanetFurry.com.
