More guidelines than rules

November 2nd, 2009

When it comes to webdesign – Christian or otherwise – there are no rules. Everything you read on this website will be for guidance only and you should remember that about anything you read.

Of course some guidelines are very strong guidlines but you will always be free to break them.

One of the great joys of the Internet is that it is a place you can experiment. There are no web police making sure you follow the rules of good design and if you have a good reason for doing something then you can just go ahead and do it.

The only thing I would say though is that if you decide to follow your own rules you have to be prepared for others not to like it – and to quite possibly comment on it. If people don’t like it then they will be very tempted to just click and go somewhere else. Most people’s temptation threshold on the Internet is very low indeed.

So follow your own rules but don’t neglect to understand the guidelines.
