So, here I am, a non-typical My Space user, setting up my profile and documenting how I did each step to teach others.
So many folks that have My Space accounts have visited Help For Web Beginners to learn how to create Marquees.
When I started looking at other sites to help My Space members jazz up their profile pages, none seemed to explain how to get started.
Unfortunately, 99% of the customizations I’ve seen are chalkboard-screechingly awful, but what could a My Space home page look like if some actual design thought went into it? But first — as Keith Robinson asked me when I first showed him what I was doing — “Ummm, why? Turns out My Space customization is a cottage industry unto itself.
Unfortunately, the first twenty sites I found produced nothing but crap.When I opened the email, I was greeted with this scary sight…After a hurried check of the source code, I realized My Space was converting my character entities <style> code into a working tag.right, and no matter what your thoughts on it as a vehicle for your own expression are, you must give it its full due for what it is to seemingly everyone else.Several weeks ago, I finally signed up for an account, and within seconds I was instantly put-off by what had been created for me: a hastily-designed “profile page” with uninspired colors, misaligned tables, and a mish-mash of extraneous cruft and design elements which made this feel more like a halfway house than a “home”.I just updated the Myspace Backgrounds section with over 200 of them, complete with code.
