So everyone must conform to the standard, rather than be free to use their creativity? I see.

I actually like this, but -1 for creating a legion of 14-year-olds downvoting sites stating "PICTURE SOUND TEXT", and -1 for being one of many members that suggest others should die because they don't share the same ideas. Don't be a dick.

I've got a ton of sh*t that's animated. Some of it's basic, some is ripped from video. Animation itself isn't the problem. Feel like embarassing yourself again?

The fundamental principles of any institution are always important, and should always be kept in mind, but evolution and change through artistic freedom shouldn't be chastised. We should try and keep our minds open to new possibilities. Quit being so excl

I'm not saying people shouldn't be allowed to make other kinds of ytmnds. But as an artistic guideline, since hardly anybody makes a good site when they stray from the fundamentals, they should consciously choose to stick to the form.

What is good and what is not is almost entirely subjective though. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, I do agree that considering the guidlines placed and just the groundwork which has been laid, we shouldn't stray -too- far from the standard
