Required for ALL SOEST Pages
At the very least, all SOEST web pages should adhere to the following five guidelines:
A Note on Content
Although SOEST supports freedom of expression and content in pages located on our servers, we must reserve the right to un-link any documents violating University of Hawaii guidelines regarding discrimination of any kind, and / or any pages containing blatantly sexual content.
Please use your best judgment, as this is a publicly funded institution of higher learning dedicated to dissemination of knowledge to the public we serve.
The guidelines and requirements for inclusion on the “top level” pages in the SOEST site are discussed in detail elsewhere. The pages themselves, and those currently linked to and described on them, should give you a good idea of the requirements for inclusion.
For questions regarding all SOEST pages please contact
General Design and Layout
Our most important rule is to keep it simple. Overwhelming a page’s content with flashy technique makes it slow to load and, more important, difficult to navigate. Even if your visitors have unlimited bandwidth, they will rarely have unlimited time.
We encourage SOEST web developers to coordinate with Brooks Bays (design) as part of our efforts to develop a more cohesive feel to SOEST’s web presence, while maintaining individual and project identities on lower-level pages.
