What are Style Brackets?

7 Comments

I have been using the term “Style Brackets” here, and a few people have had questions as to what they are…

They look like this
<style type=”text/css”>
</style>

The reason I havent been using them is because when I write them in wordpress, they don’t work when you paste them into myspace for some reason.
I use the method I outlined here to make the chevrons: https://justsayyes.wordpress.com/2007/05/03/how-do-i-put-a-in-wordpress/
but those apparently arent actual brackets – css doesnt like it.

So my suggestion is to use ones you already have or type them in manually.

If anyone has a solution to this, it would be much appreciated

Thanks~

***UPDATE: I was daydreaming and found a great solution for this… Being a huge fan of the Notepad program, I was thinking that I would just create a text file with the exact code, and upload it to the post. This way the users can go directly to the code without dealing with the formatting. Straight code – no BS : Notepad.
So thats what I will be doing for now on. Thanks again, Notepad.

How do I block spam comments from Myspace?

2 Comments

oh, so you don’t want those ads for free ringtones or penis enhancements?? and you arent interested in seeing who’s looked at your profile (doesnt work)….
Well, Everyone with a relatively uncontrolled friends list or friends with myspace viruses have been barraged by spam comments like these.
You have two solutions: you can either take out comments altogether (look for a post later this week)
OR set your comments so that you have to approve it before it shows up..
How do I do this??

From your homepage, click on ACCOUNT SETTINGS
Then click on PRIVACY SETTINGS – CHANGE SETTINGS
CHECK THE BOX WHICH SAYS – Comments – approve before posting

While you are here, you may want to reconsider the group and event invite privacy settings too. They can get annoying as well.

Don’t quit on Myspace, don’t let them win

How do I remove a comment from Myspace?

Leave a comment

I have a comment that doesnt allow me to remove it. Instead of the normal ‘Delete my comment’ link, it isnt there, or there is a link to another spam site. Those mothers, who cares about these porn sites??

So, how do I remove one of these seemingly unremoveable comments??

Go to EDIT PROFILE
Click Safe Edit Mode on the top right
Click on the Comments Tab
Find the comment you want to remove and press delete.

Thats all – easy

I could really care less about what is “good” and “bad”. I don’t think about morals and religion. I never try to do anything other than what it is or what I get out of it. This probably applies to those ultra-givers too, but they get some sort of pride or self-worth by giving to charities.

I don’t give money to charities. I know people working in non-profits, and they make tons of money. Who exactly is making no profit? Also, I don’t want MY money being mismanaged and spent on frivolous things. I would much rather give my time and help to something than my money. I need my money to make more money. Maybe when I die. If I die.

Love Barnes and Nobles. Magazine section. Its like candyland for your head. A few months ago, I found a magazine that grabbed me. Every article was interesting to me. How different companies are connected, where money is spent, random people bios, playpump water system in africa, cool fun photos… Literally, every article was worth of a read. This hasnt happened since my friend turned me onto Maxim Magazine when I was a freshman in college. (I’ve moved on since then(to esquire)). The next day, I realized what the magazine was about, and its connection to the title.

GOOD Magazine is a magazine all about. For me its all about finding things that fit. I always try to find solutions no matter what I am doing. I love getting gifts for people because I like to find what fits them the most – what they will need or like the most. This should be a whole post unto itself… Magazines like this see solutions and let you know about it. It inspires you to put help solve the world. Thats what I get out of it.

Heres a great idea how to save the world doing nothing. Ripple.org is a website where they take the profits from advertising and they give it directly to a cause of your choice. One instance won’t make much, but if you make their site your homepage…. This will add up! Great idea. might as well, it doesn’t hurt.

2 more ways to do good. Ripple your homepage. and read GOOD.

How do I take out my top friends from my Myspace page?

How do I remove my top friends list from my myspace? How do I take out my top friends list?

“Jeff – Why did you take me off your top friends list???”
I have heard this at least 3 times from people pissed because I rearranged my list. There is such competition and feelings involved in these top friends lists. Recently, I took it down to a top 4 – including only people related to me – no one can complain about that right? But why should I have to worry about peoples feelings anyways – It’s my page. and it doesnt mean anything. I don’t see it as a ranking! Then theres girlfriends/boyfriends… Its such a big deal to put that special someone on your top friends list. its like an announcement to the world of your commencement. And if you put them number 1 – you are probably whipped (for newbie relationships) and this might crash hard. So usually one just leaves that person off for months just not to admit ownership or playing it cool that that person still hasnt infiltrated your top list – because, you know, your top friends list actually says who your top friends are – In order.

So lets get rid of the whole thing altogether

or maybe you just want to pimp your myspace so it doesnt show your friends list. Are they trying to tell me what to do? are you kidding me? f that.

you can use this code:
Put this inside your style brackets. What are Style Brackets?
td.text td.text table table table, td.text td.text table br, td.text td.text table .orangetext15, td.text td.text .redlink, td.text td.text span.btext {display:none;}
td.text td.text table {background-color:transparent;}
td.text td.text table td, td.text td.text table {height:0;padding:0;border:0;}
td.text td.text table table td {padding:3;}
td.text td.text table table br {display:inline;}

Facebook is cool because the friends that show up on your front page are random. There is no politics.
