So, this site has been fully operational for about 2 months now. We just hit 700 linked blogs and everything is going well. However, with so many blogs, it's hard for me to find if any of them are breaking the rules. This is where I need your help, but of course, I'll give you a little motivation, read on...
Blogs that are in violation of the rules meet any of the following criteria:(1)
Have not been updated in over a month (unless there's a post explaining not to expect new posts for some period of time due to vacation, illness, etc.)(2)
Pornographic or otherwise offensive material(3)
Do not host a link back to "Bestest Blog"(4)
Sites that no longer exist, or attempt to forward previously existing webpages to new URLs
So, part of removing a site from my directory involves removing them from the "Random Blog" rotation. The "Random Blog" rotation is basically a (very) long numbered list of URLs. The computer randomly generates a number, and the button sends you to that blog corresponding to that number.
So, say a blog I need to remove is #123 (the specific numbers don't matter). If I remove this blog, I need to place a new URL at #123 in case the computer randomly picks that number. That's where your motivation comes in...If you find a blog that is in violation, when I remove its URL from the "Random Blog" rotation, I will replace it with yours!
Now, I'm not saying to go out of your way to find these blogs. I'm just asking that as you go about your regular surfing, whether it be by the "Random Blog" button or by the category directories, if you find a bad blog, come back here and leave a comment so I can take care of it (be sure to leave the bad blog's URL, as well as your URL so I know what to replace it with).
If you are not sure if a blog is in violation, but think it might be, post it here anyway and I'll double-check it myself.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your help! If you have any questions, as always, feel free to ask.
