No nudity today…

nutity prohibited Oh how well this fits to my yesterday’s post‘s splash picture. ;)

Some blogs make themselves “nude” today on CSS Naked Day, i.e. remove their design created using CSS, in order to honor the web standards developers and point out these standards and their promotion.

A great English praise can be found at Lorelle’s, including a plea for advancing standards towards built-in automatic translation (well, there’s certainly much work left to be done to make these undertandable…).

Well, anyone as he likes (the “prohibited” sign isn’t meant serious in this regard) – I personally don’t see much point in showing an “ugly” page to my visitors, only a fraction of which will probably understand what this is about and rather think of an error – until they noticed the information hopefully displayed clearly by all participants, that is. :)

Here, by the way, it’d look like this (click for large view):

nacktes Design

Those who want can, for instance, select View → Page Style → No Style in Firefox’s menu, then this site will look and work just like that without a CSS design.

    Das scheint ja echt zu spalten :mrgreen: Also ich mache deswegen mit, weil ich es wichtig finde. Wenn ich dadurch heute eine handvoll Benutzer verschrecke, soll es mir recht sein. Die würden evtl. auch mit einem normalen “Blog” nicht klarkommen.

    Frank hat übrigens nicht zu früh losgelegt. Es gibt die starke und die schwache Option, weil man zwischen 48 h (alle Zeitzonen) und 24h (nur die eigene Zeitzone) wählen kann.

    Ah, danke für den Hinweis mit den Zeitzonen – nun ja, es dürften weniger asiatische und australische Besucher bemerkt haben als deutsche. :)

All inputs are optional. The e-mail address won't be published nor shared.

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
