This is a brand new and exciting program offered by Excalibur Rodents. The aim is to reward people who have put a lot of effort into creating and maintaining a rodent-related website.
There are 3 levels of awards. Gold, Silver and Bronze.
The Gold award is the hardest of all to earn. This is for websites with outstanding design, content and may even have that ‘WOW!’ effect on us.
The Silver award is for those which have fantastic content but perhaps the design is not so up to scratch, or whose design is great but does not have much content.
The Bronze award is for those who may not be completely up to scratch in either respect but deserve a merit because I can see effort put into the site and the potential for improvement.
If you earn a Silver or Bronze award (or no award at all), I will outline in an email to you what you can improve on to upgrade to a higher level award. You may apply for an upgrade no sooner than 30 days after the initial appliction has been awarded.
- The site MUST be rodent related. Rats, mice, hamsters, etc.
- It must have real content. A page of nothing but links or ads will be disqualified.
- There must be no adult content whatsoever, nor can it link to adult content on another website.
- You (the applicant) must be the designer/builder of the website.
- Sites with warez, mp3’s and other illegal downloads will be disqualified.
- Hate messages and discrimination against any group of people will cause the site to be disqualified.
- Sites that depict violence/abuse/torture towards animals will be disqualified.
- Both commercial and non-commercial sites may apply.
- Hints on what I like to see:
- A pleasing design that is easy on the eye and flows nicely.
- Content easily navigated by a set navigation system
- Informative and educational content
- Internal links that all work, I don’t want to see 404’s!
- Appropriate copyright information displayed when using images that you have not created yourself.
