Will you link to my site? It's possible. At the risk of stating
the obvious, linking to us first will increase the likelihood that we'll
link back. It's not easy to get a link on the sidebar, sites linked there
should update frequently and offer content that readers of this site will
enjoy. If your site doesn't necessarily fit that criteria, it could still
be linked in one of the regular Featured Stuff segments. We're always
looking for nifty sites to feature.
Can I link to this site? Please do. See below for link graphics,
if you care to use one of those.
I can't believe you linked to something or other! Okay, that's
not a question, but Dontmindme.com accepts no responsibility for the content
of other web sites. That said, if something we linked to is blatantly
offensive, let us know and we'll consider removing the link.
Why is some text a different colour? You will find on occasion
semi-hidden links on this site. The text will be slightly grey instead
of black, and look something like this.
The idea behind this is to offer additional information or amusement about
a particular piece of text, but blue link text tends to be distracting
and overly attention seeking. The grey text is still visible if you look
closely, but it doesn't scream "click me." At one time these
links were the same colour as the text, but it's not like anyone would
find them that way.
Any other hidden stuff I should look for? Actually, yes. Sometimes
there might be hidden text that will pop up if you run the mouse pointer
over a certain phrase or word. This is usually
a parenthetical statement that doesn't fit well into the context, or just
a side comment. These are generally completely invisible, you won't find
them unless you look. And they
aren't on every page. Also, on some images, notably in the more recent
A Thousand Words articles,
the text that pops up when you move your mouse over images will present
on the privacy info page.
