Header Possibility, Online Etiquette in Wizard101, and Player Submitted Work

The first thing you noticed is likely the header change. Don't like it? Don't freak out, it's temporary! Let me know what you think.

If you noticed, the header has been changed to include the blog title and website. I hope that this will help readers better remember the website, but I'm not sure that the colors work... so I'm asking for your help! I want to know if anything could be changed, or if it should be removed altogether, so please take a moment to comment and vote in the poll on our sidebar - you can select multiple answers here. Thanks!

On many international Wizard101 sites, an Online Etiquette section is included, but it seems to be missing in the United States area, so I thought I'd share.
Wizard101 reminds us:
  • Help other people when they are in trouble or if they ask for assistance.
  • Ask your friends if you can join them before you teleport to them in the game.
  • When adventuring in a group, participate and contribute to the team! Bring the right cards for your playing style, keep your potion bottles, health and mana full and cheer for your fellow wizards.
  • Use the ignore feature. If you see someone saying something that makes you feel uncomfortable, click on their name and choose 'ignore'. That way they will not be able to bother you again.

  • Don't SHOUT AT THE TOP OF YOUR LUNGS! People can see what you are saying without using all capital letters.
  • Don't look for ways to break the game's rules. If you see someone doing so, report them.
  • Don't use 'creative' spelling or word choices to say things you shouldn't say. The chat filters are in place for a reason and if you have to get creative to say something, then you shouldn't be saying it.
  • Don't be a bully. Not only is it a mean thing to do, but it will get you banned from the game permanently.
  • Don't forget the Golden Rule - always treat others like you would like to be treated!
Keep yourself safe by keeping your personal information private. Never give out any personal information online!

Why?
  • Your Wizard101 account could be hacked and deleted forever.
  • Your Wizard101 characters could be deleted forever.
  • You could be permanently banned from ever playing Wizard101 again.
  • Bad people can find you in real life.

How?
  • Never tell anyone your account information.
  • Never tell anyone your password.
  • Never tell anyone your real name.
  • Never tell anyone your age.
  • Never tell anyone your location.
  • Never tell anyone your email address.
  • Never tell anyone your phone number.

Kingsisle asks players to take a look at their Player Submitted Work, including Fan Art, Fan Fiction, and Fan Photos! You can also submit your own work to be displayed in these areas!

Be sure to vote and leave a comment! Thanks in advance, and see you in the Spiral!
