Campaign for CSS in Neopian Shops!

Navigation

Welcome to the campaign for CSS in Neopian Shops. This is the site dedicated to spreading the word about a simple, easy method of putting CSS back into user shops on Neopets without allowing the kind of scams that went on before because of it. Intriuged? Read on!

History

Beginning:

In the beginning, there were shops. In the shops you could put a description. In the description, you could put HTML tags. With a very few exceptions, like scripts and Iframes, the only thing you weren't allowed to do was write bad words. In particular, you were allowed to put stylesheets in your shop, to format how things looked. It was a nice feature, it made lots of shops look quite pretty, and it made lots of people happy. But there was one thing wrong with it, one

Problem:

One thing that allowed people to do was use positioning styles. With this, they could put their own image of a rare item and the text to go with it over an actually very cheap item. When you went to go buy the rare item, you spent your money on nothing. In short, you were scammed.

So:

Neopets took out absolute positioning, after of course freezing anyone who'd used it to scam. That worked for a while, but eventually people found ways around it. They used linked stylesheets, or obscured the text other ways. Neopets tried blocking these, but eventually they got fed up with having to go through lots of individual ways of getting around their blocks, and did away with CSS entirely.

That:

Made quite a lot of people unhappy. Their once beautiful shops were now the bland, lifeless things they'd started as, with only a string of dead code to testify to what they'd once been. It had gotten rid of the scammers, but at a price.

But:

There is a solution!!


SOLUTION!

All that needs to be done is for neopets to regulate what CSS we can and cannot use, and we can have it back in our shops without fear of scammers. How can they do that? The answer is suprisingly simple!

Neopets can host our stylesheets!

How does this work? Well...

  • In the create/edit shop area, there is another form, in that you type CSS code
  • Neopets runs that through a filter. If there isn't anything in it that could be used for scamming...
  • It gets uploaded onto the neopets server, somewhere like for example http://www.neopets.com/shopcss/username.css
  • In each person's shop there is a server-generated bit of code, linking to that stylesheet.
  • WE (neopets addicts/other people) do not need to link any other stylesheets or put any code in the description. Those are still outlawed

This gets around any possible scam attempts, while still allowing us to have CSS in our shops. Is there any reason at all that it should not be used?

We need the help of any and every Neopets player out there. The more people that want it, the more likely the Neopets team will put it in. So what we need you to do is to link to this page.
