Linking & Contributing

Q: Can we be affiliate sites?
A: Yes, however, my requirement is that it must be a Final Fantasy fansite of good quality. I worked hard on this fansite to make it somewhat unique, so I want to affiliate with sites that show the owner also poured a lot of effort and energy into theirs.

Q: Can we link exchange?
A: YES! I adore link exchanges. You link my website on your site, I link your website on mine. Everybody gets free publicity in that win-win situation. My only rule is that it must be a Final Fantasy-related website. It does not matter that type of site or which game it features - any FF is fine.

Q: Can I donate a link button, fanart, wallpaper, icons, multimedia, or images?
A: Sure! Donations are awesome. Of course, you will also be properly credited/linked on the page with your donation or on the Credits & Resources page. If you want to donate something bigger, like a layout or an article, please consult me before making anything. I might not be comfortable with it, or I might already have plans similar to it and would want to collaborate.

Q: I spotted a typo or other error on your website!
A: Do tell me so that I can fix it! I write a lot of my stuff when I'm tired, so there are bound to be a lot of typos or coding errors. I'd appreciate it if you could point it out.

Q: I have an idea for a section I'd like to see on your website.
A: Send it to me and I will consider it. I always have quite a lengthy list of things I still need to add to the website though. So it might be a while before I add your suggestion, if at all, due to time constraints.

Q: What's hotlinking, direct linking, remote linking?
A: It's when you take the exact url of an image on someonelse's site and use it on your site. It steals bandwidth, and is looked down upon in the internet community as an evil sin. Stealing too much bandwidth can cause a website to go offline or be suspended. And yes, my stats will tell me who and where you are. So I will find you if you do it.
To prevent this, you must save an image to your own hard drive, upload it from your webspace, and it link it from your space. You can do this by right-clicking the image, choosing "Save Image As...", and then uploading it to a site like Photobucket or Tinypic.


Q: Q. Can I use images from your galleries?
A: For official Square images, screenshots, artwork, yes, those are available for personal, non-commercial use. Just save them to your own computer before working or using them. For fan art and wallpapers, please check with the artist. And remember, NO HOTLINKING.

Q: How do I get the music off your streaming player?
A: You can't get it from me. There are many legal issues around that, and I don't even understand what's legal and what's not in regards to this music subject. Thus, the most you'll ever get from me is a streaming jukebox.

Q: Can I use something you wrote on this site?
A: If you quote my words from this site, please clearly acknowledge me as the writer and link back to me on that same page. Everything written here, unless otherwise noted, is my own words. If you don't cite me as the writer, it's plagerism. I had a bad experience with someone who copied my original content when I was young, and it really hurt me, so it's a big fucking deal to me.

Q: Can I use your layout and/or coding?
A: No. My layouts aren't that good, and my coding is pretty messy (and not XHTML valid). You shouldn't want to be copying me anyway.

Q: Can you make me a layout/graphic or help me with my website design?
A: No, I don't take commissions, unless you catch me on a lucky day. Feel free to email me about your project though - I am able to refer you to other talented, freelance designers.

Q: Can you make me something, send me something, or find something for me?
A: No.


Q: I don't agree with the opinion/statement you made on this article. You're totally wrong. *flame flame flame*
A: I don't care.

Q: Why haven't you responded to my email/comment yet?
A: Quite honestly, I'm really bad at replying to emails quickly. I'm very busy in real like, web site design is my hobby when I have free time. Just be patient, I'll get back to it eventually. If you're concerned that your message may have ended up in my spam folder, you can try emailing me again.
