So I created a MySpace account.
www.myspace.com/ewthisstinks

I know it's a bit bare. I've been tearing my hair out trying to figure out the HTML/css crap but gave up and decided to just leave it alone and play with it later.

My blog looks cool though.

Let me know what you guys think.

2. Your blog looks great!
It takes some time to tweak your profile to the way you like it. I am always doing something different on mine. I'll favorite it so I can see what you do with it.

4. Yours looks so cool!!!
I just wish I can figure out how to do the css stuff. HTML I am a bit familiar with as far as doing the text. But the css and doing the tables and stuff is difficult. I don't understand it. Maybe you don't have to do css to do the layout?

I tried putting a background on my main page but it didn't work out.

7. The best way is to find a premade layout.
It does all of the tables for you in all kinds of themes. On most sites you can preview them to make sure you like them. Then, all you do is copy an already written code into your About Me section, and that's it.


I got my profile layout from http://reddragondesigns.net/layoutspage.php

If you have any questions, you can PM me.

3. Forget bare! You've put a ton of great info on there.
All the details about what you like is what's important. You can dress it up later, but a good site with interests and books and concerns beats a flashy MySpace site anyday.

8. Let him spy on me and my Bush hating friends
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 10:43 PM by VenusRising
and read all the stupid surveys. I hope he knows that I happen to "Kick it with ninjas in the back of a snow cone truck, cause that's the way I roll."

6. Your blog looks good
My link is in my profile. I tend to leave politics out of my Myspace, though. :hi:

As already mentioned, having a lot of interests and info about you is what is important for now. It took me weeks before I came up with a layout that I liked, and even then I change it every month or two.

10. Exactly so.
Your first sentence sums up my attitude about it to.

I've been sorely tempted to put something on there; but have resisted.

9. Me too, here's my site
Edited on Fri Dec-15-06 11:05 PM by Chico Man
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.vi...

I managed to strip all the stuff away and start with a blank slate.

The more I look at my site I realize it's not really a myspace page anymore.. but thats OK, I'm not one to be pushed into a preset mold.

I do wish MySpace had a way to program against it, like an API or something.. to access friends list, whether you are online, comments, etc. I hear you can do this with facebook.

Cool site, tho! The blogs tripped out!

12. I deleted my account yesterday.....
The drama, oh my God the drama. I felt like I was in high school again. I must have been hanging out with the wrong crowd.

15. Yeah I heard of a group called 'The Plastics'
That apparently makes fun of people on MySpace. They were featured on the Keith Ablow show and boy they were certainly something else. That's one of the reasons why I was afraid to start a MySpace account.

Well I am off to bed now. I got a splitting headache.

13. I tried to join, but it didn't work for some reason
It's OK, all I wanted to do was troll some of those creepy older guys who hang out there.

14. Well after sitting for two hours and fucking trial and error...
I think I got the coding crap down somewhat.

here's what it looks like now www.myspace.com/ewthisstinks

I could not, for the life of me figure out how to get rid of the big white panel in the background. but then a little note said that it probably wouldn't show up or some shit like that. Well I got my layout the way I wanted to and by God it better work!!
