Well if you are really bored, then <marquee> can be something to pass the time. It is also very good at driving away vistors from your webpage, along with <blink>, Animated GIFs, and anything else that moves.

So, please, PLEASE don't use this on an actual webpage. It is just fun to play with.

I have. On websites designed by ten year olds hosted on Geocities. Please don't tell me you seriously though this was a good idea... Both Blink and Marquee are proprietary tags and now depreciated. Do something fun with text generation and gd.dll instead :D

Who said they hate graphics?

They (Anyone, and everyone with an IQ above 80) hates moving things on web pages, its annoying and sometimes makes you click out right away. I do.

Here, want to do something productive with your time?

Try reading this guide when designing your pages so they are compatible with more than one browser, and don't look atrociously bad.

Oh, and Goose, respect your elders. If it wern't for them, you wouldn't have the marvelous GUI you adore so very much... hehe.

Oh sorry, it wasn't intended to be mean. As text shows no emotion, I guess it was open to interpretaion.

The "your" wasn't pointed to anyone specifically, I meant literally what I said. If anyone has free time, read the guide to make your website look better.

Oh, and the comment to Goose was a joke.

Well that was just a joke... I don't actually know what he has (although I wouldn't be suprised if he had a list of pirated software; as I've seen it before on these forums).

I think he was trying to sound like a shop keeper:

"Would you like to have a look at my wares? I have the best swords in town."

You should get the idea.

Bad English + Acronyms = Chaos

acronym
n : a word formed from the initial letters of a multi-word name

Warez and wares are not acronyms. Perhaps you shouldn't be so quick to make assumptions.

Nothing to say + feel the need to post in every thread = mistakes.

Sounds hypocritical to me...

Also, I wasn't referring to "warez" and "wares" as acronyms; as I know what the word means.

Look Anonymoose, I get no prize for posting in threads. I could actually be doing many different things with my time. I choose to help people here, and I am reassured that I am doing a fairly-decent job due to the numerous "thank yous" I get from problems that I have solved/help solve. Also, considering this is an "Off Topic" thread, basically everything in here can be ruled useless.
Considering that every action is backed with a reason, wouldn't my "feel the need to post in every thread" require a reason? And since you are the one who pointed out this "mistake," I would be more than enlightened to hear my reason for doing this; as I know not what it is.

Perhaps if you don't know the reason for posting, you shouldn't bother. I wasn't particularly referring to this thread since it's in off topic, just the numerous other threads that would be a lot easier to read without a random unhelpful one liner every other post. I'm not denying that you solve a lot of problems in the threads where you do have something useful to add, just that maybe there isn't a need to post in ones where you don't e.g. linux, wap etc.

I know my reason for posting; which I said in the previous post. It is my "feel the need to post in every thread" that I don't know.

Ok, Anonymoose, according to you, I should be able to find 644 posts with "a random unhelpful one liner." We both know this is obviously not true, but just to give you the benefit of the doubt, find me 15 threads that I have made "a random unhelpful one liner." If you can, I will stop posting here altogether.

I'm sure you may think this is stupid and solves nothing, however you were the one who animadverted, so it is your responsibility to back up what you said.

I don't want you to "stop posting here altogether" - you're missing the point entirely... I was just suggesting you could make a lot of on topic threads easier to read by only posting when you have something useful to add.

If you want 2 example threads, take the WAP post from this week where you talk about making sure index.htm files are present when .wml are needed, and the current Linux thread where "I can't think of the command you need." was highly helpful...

This thread is now also useful, since I have learnt a new word. :$
