Has anyone noticed those big, huge, crappy, gaudy awards
that grace the
index pages of some of the worst pages? I sure have. And it
makes me sick.
Sailor Yohko put it best. She had the 5 basic types of
awards (You came
to my page! Here's your award!) (You gave me an award so
here's one back!)
(Do all this crap for me and then you'll get the award!)
(You're my friend.
Here ya go.) and finally (You've got a great page. Here ya
She neglected to remember the 6th one, that being "Your
site is really
crappy but in my eyes it's great so here's your award". I
went to one really
bad page with a large image gallery with all the images
linked to her
D drive (O_o What da?) the usual doll box stats with
hidden midis, and TeXt LiKe ThIs On EvErYpAgE.
I go to her awards page, and she's got 5 pages of these
really ugly awards!
I decided to look into the problem because I had a hard
time believing these
people would give her all these awards. Some of the awards
had her site's
name on it. Okay, she actually won those. Some of the other
to pages as crappy as hers were. THAT explains it.
You know..I really wish people would stop and think about
WHY they're giving
out the award. Is it because the page is good? Or is it, in
you're desperate to get visitors to your site?
I also went to one site where they gave out 47 awards.
Half of them were
new names for "pretty pages" or "nice shrine to Sailor
were ones that you couldn't apply for, and that they only
gave to their
friends. So these friends of yours with non-anime pages get
these awards for
actually knowing that you have a piece of lettuce on your
teeth get an award
where a nice person who shares the same interest as you
Give me a break already!
In conclusion, I think that the whole web would be improved
if we just wiped
crappy awards off the face of the earth, and maybe even the
who give them out.
