The criteria for the Conservative Site of the Day is quite simple with sites being judged with simple criteria:
- Content. It's said
that standards are desperately needed on the World Wide Web. We agree,
except that standard should be a decent I.Q. score. Does the website
have an interesting collection of content that someone is willing to
invest the time to look at, or is the site simply a collection of links?
Java applets, animated GIFs and things that need proprietary plug-ins
may make your website nifty, but without content it's like a typical
Hollywood movie...all action, no plot.
- Design. Is the
information presented on the website in a clear and consistent manner,
or does one have difficulty in rooting out information? Is the website
appealing, or it is black text on Netscape grey?
- It must expatiate
a politically conservative point of view. ESR's CSotD will not judge,
at least in most cases, whether it's the "proper" brand of
conservatism, but we do want conservative websites.
- Relevancy. No one
wants to read material that is months out of date.
There is no formula
for how a site will be chosen, but content does take precedence over a
pretty design. The Internet is not television and ESR's CSotD does expect
there to be more than shiny things to keep surfers entranced. Content
On the question of
ideology: ESR's CSotD will not enforce any particular conservative strain
of thought. Websites of different non-racist conservative
viewpoints will be featured.
