Flash From the Past: Raven's Website Award
So Ann O'Nymous, you wanna win my award eh?
Let's see if you have what it takes shall we?
- A good sense of humor?
- Do you have an open mind?
- Is your site unique and original?
- Do you know how hand-code HTML?
- Porn is ugly and so is hate, do you agree with me?
- Are you the web-master/mistress of your site?
- Are you over 18?
- Are the only pop-up adds on your site from your free providor?
- Do your pages load quickly?
- Is your grammar, punctuation and spelling acceptable?
- Do your pages work in Netscape and Explorer?
- Do you have minimal animation and blinking text?
- Do all your links and graphics work?
- Do you update your site often?
So then Ann O'Nymous, if you answered yes to the above, I'll take a look at your site. I am self taught, and I do not use programs such as Pagemill, or Frontpage, I hand-code HTML from scratch, and this is what I want to see in a site. Even though design and layout require skill, the skill of writing code is something too few of us posses, and I want to reward it. I also want to reward a fun, entertaining web-site, that is not merely links, and add's and fluff. I'm not saying you can't use a page building program, just that it should not be your only tool. God gave you a brain, so use it.
I have a bawdy sense of humor, and am a smartass, however, I will not consider rude, hate filled sites, or pornography. I want your site to either touch me, or make me laugh genuinely, I want it to be something that I will remember, and give an award to.
I will look at each submission carefully, and I will award as I see fit based on the above criteria, and overall impression. I am not 'awarding' this award, unless I believe you deserve it. If you don't get it, it does not mean your site 'sucks', it just means it does not fit within my criteria. I am also a bit of a hardass, so don't wilt too easily around me, I am not a very sympathetic person when it comes to people who can't take a few knocks.
Only one submission per site is allowed, and in the submission you send me there must be this magic word Kensington, to show me that you have read my criteria. No e-mail or other notice will be sent upon receipt of your submission, sorry I live in the real world and I don't have that kind of time for being online. Use the form below to send me your submission, I should get back to the winners within a two to six weeks at most. If you don't hear from me within that time frame, you did not win. Don't take it too hard, try for another award someplace else, you'll eventually get one, so don't worry about it...
Good luck Ann O'Nymous, and I am glad you got this far in my site.
