I itemized the subscription policy entries

Post by maybee » Thu Mar 10, 2011 4:11 am

writting subscription policies is a good job :)
I itemized the policy entries. I think it help users view the policy efficiently.
how about this?

Service of filter subscription

coverage
  • Filters should only be added for English websites; supplements support other languages.
    • If it is not feasible for a supplement to override EasyList filters should be added to the primary subscription.
    • Languages for which there are no supplements may have issues resolved in EasyList; however, these filters should ideally be transferred to another subscription.
  • exception : Adult websites must not be supported.
target
  • EasyList filters must remove adverts, although it is acceptable for them to incidentally remove tracking.
  • Anti-Adblock should only be challenged if the system limits website functionality or causes significant disruption to browsing.
Standard
  • Standard of blocking ads
    • Adverts must be blocked regardless of the reasons for their presence or the purpose that the money raised ultimately serves.
    • Domains specifically serving adverts should be blocked on all third-party websites.
  • Standard of allowing ads
    • Self-promotion should not be specifically removed by EasyList, although equally should not be whitelisted if it is blocked.
the management of filter list
  • Filters must be as efficient as possible.
  • Only element rules based on id or class should be applied to all domains, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
  • Consistently problematic filters should be removed from the subscription.
  • Specific filters should only added if a substantial amount of advertising is removed by its inclusion.
  • Whitelists should specific enough to avoid protecting unwanted items.

I agree that it would be helpful to add sections to the subscription policies and have therefore moved this topic to the development forum for further discussion. I have also updated your forum status to reflect your status as Corset author and granted you the contributor rank.

I've applied the changes to the policy page and will sort out the CSS mess when I have a little more time...

I have e-mailed Wladimir to request assistance in overriding styles.css, the stylesheet provided by Anwiki.

I'm a little late to the party, but I figured I'd note a quick grammar error on the last line.
Whitelists should specific enough to avoid protecting unwanted items.
