Profile Customization - A Wiki

Updates

Update 4y
  • - Rules adjusted
We will now be policing Studio uberstyles to ensure they are up to date and do not have legibility, navigation or functional issues.

Rules that set out what you can and can't do when customizing your profile.

Profile Customization is a fun and unique feature that GameBanana offers to members. Profiles can be changed in limitless ways by altering their CSS code. Because this feature is so powerful, we need to have some rules to control what people do. 

It's important that other users feel safe and comfortable viewing your content - it's for your and their own good. If you have a broken or ugly Uberstyle, nobody is going to stick around and view your content. Please heed the rules below.

1. Forbidden Practices

  1. Using other members code/scripts without permission.
  2. Any auto playing sound or video with sound.
  3. Background colors that deliberately hide the fonts above them.
  4. Any code designed to abuse, interfere with or confuse the user.

2. Styling Requirements

  1. No module backgrounds with less than 90% (0.9) opacity/alpha.
  2. No covering or hiding of core navigation elements or the GameBanana logo.
  3. Links must contrast with text.
  4. Links and clickable elements must use the appropriate cursor (pointer).

3. Maintenance Requirements

  1. Uberstyles must be maintained, and kept up to date with site layout changes.
  2. Uberstyles owners are given 30 days to correct Uberstyle issues.
  3. Inactive studios (6 months inactive) with broken Uberstyles will have their Uberstyles immediately reset.

4. Misleading links 

Any link send the user to suspicious sites, porno sites or any fake sites in order to scam will be banned.

5. Advertisements

Any links that send the user to suspicious site (malicious sites, pornographic sites or fake sites) in order to scam, will be banned.

6. Sexual content

All types of sexual content (real, anime or cartoon) must be clothed and no sexual acts should be displayed. This means they must wear a top and bottom piece of clothing. Ribbons, strings, pasties, see through clothing and hands covering, etc do not count. It does not matter which direction they are facing. There are no exceptions for legal reasons.

7. Racism

You are not allowed to insult any person or group of people with words or pictures using your profile, studio or club.

8. Required Elements 

The following elements and all child elements must remain visible: 
  1. #MemberNavigatorPanes
  2. #MemberNavigatorTabs
  3. #HomeLink
  4. #PublicNavigatorTabs
  5. #PublicNavigatorPanes
  6. #PageTitleWrapper
  7. #DropdownMenuSubNavigator
  8. #BasicSubNavigator

9. Fast flashing images/uberstyles

Extreme use of flashing images in user avatars, upics, uberstyles and any other relevant areas is not allowed. This is to help the usability of the site for epilepsy sufferers. The use of reasonable, slow-flashing images is okay, but images with a quick-flashing effect are not allowed.

10. Non-Compliance

Moderators reserve the right to reset Uberstyles without reason and without providing notice.

Repeat offenders may be banned or have their studios or clubs deleted.

    Regarding the required elements section, should #AtfLeaderboardModule, #BtfLeaderboardModule, #FooterSquareBannerModule, #AtfSquareBannerModule be explicitly added? I've been enforcing that for studios thus far, but there's been at least one request to have it specifically outlined. They're all the ads for the site.

    tom Does AtfLeaderboardModule count with regards to modules and the background rule, considering it only ever houses ads for profiles?

    Also, any chance on some leeway on the transparency if there is enough of a delineation between modules and the text within any given module is actually on visually presented on top of a flat solid colour? Or at least lowering of the minimum opacity allowed in such a situation.

    Under 1.0 General, it states "Any auto playing sound or video with sound." Does that mean an auto-playing video without sound is permitted? Are GIFs permitted?

    Just asking for clarity.

    Yes, a gif is permitted.
