The Comment You're Replying To

James Spratt complained about the Majon award on another page. Until just
now, you couldn't add comments to this page, because it wasn't in the
database. So I just added it to the database before adding my comment
here.

Majon offers two awards. One of these awards can be given by anyone to
anyone. In fact, I could award it to my own site. It's basically a
pseudo-award anyone can pin on his site when it hasn't actually been
recognized by others. This so-called award is identified in some of the
graphics for it as the 'Web Select Award'. That's what the Majon award
on this page is called. The other award is called 'Majon's Most
Prestigious Award'. We apparently don't have that one. It is the one
they give out with some degree of discrimination. I did not see a single
link to any site that had won either award. I suppose no one is stupid
enough to pay mega-bucks for a link on this marketing website.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Top level header: <H1>

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
