Welcome to SpectralCoding.com!
SpectralCoding is a user-centered website that will be covering various tech related topics ranging from Computers to Programming to Humor.
SpectralCoding is more or less a blog where Administrators & Users can submit articles to share with others.
As above, SpectralCoding is user-centered. This means that the majority of the site is based around the users that view it. Users can submit articles, post comments, and rate both.
Users are encouraged to comment on articles. Comments can, for the most part, be about anything related to the topic. For example, say the article is about Google Earth, and someone mentions Windows Live Local, that is great. On the other hand, if someone begins talking about something WAY off-base such as posting about their dog, that is discouraged, and will most likely be hidden automatically (See Ratings).
All posts and comments can include BBCode. The following BBCode Tags are valid:
[B]Text[/B] [I]Text[/I] [U]Text[/U] [S]Text[/S]
[Color=(color)]Text[/Color] [Font=(font)]Text[/Font] [Size=(size)]Text[/Size]
[List] [*] Item Text [/List]
[Center]Text[/Center] [HR] [URL=(URL)]Title[/URL]
Perhaps one of the best features of SpectralCoding is its rating system. This allows users to provide feedback to others, and to be a sort of community-based moderation project. At the top of every article & post, it should show "# Rating
" Whenever you read a post, we encourage you to rate it. Suppose you read it, and the poster provides a good insight, or humor, you might be inclined to rate him up. To do this, simply click
. On the other hand, if a poster is rude or posts something undesirable, you may feel the need to rate them down by clicking
. Posts with a rating of -2 or lower will be hidden from view automatically. If you still want to view the post, you can click [Show/Hide) to toggle its display.
SpectralCoding also has a file server that will host various files relating to topics or other entertaining applications. All files hosted on this site are guaranteed to be 100% Virus & Spyware free. Administrators test these programs before they are allowed availability to the public.
The Contacts page has various Administrator's contact information.
