The No Right Click Script

 

All my research shows that most award programs don't want people using the no right click scripts...however...I also find that it is worthless if a surfer truly wants to steal your work and images bad enough. But they must also have the experience in order to get around this function that is suppose to stop them.

There are several ways to get around the no right click, but I will not divulge such damaging information. This information is for you as a webmaster or webmistress to use and take into consideration when you build your website. It is not my intention to advise against or for this function. But it is intended to help you make the correct decision for your own needs.

The "No Right Click" JavaScripting is meant to deter the average web surfer, however there are many people out there who can steal the images very easily. When you use a no right click code, you are wasting YOUR time, and it is unlikely that the honest surfer even cares to steal your images.

I'm sure that if you truly understand the use and its faults...you'll do whatever you see fit with this information that I provide as a service. And yes...I have removed the scripting from my website to show good faith and encouragement.

 

Why is the No Right Click Mouse Function is a Waste Of Time?

The coding for the no right click has become quite popular to many these days, and, it in reality, is as useless as they come. Nothing against using it here, but I have proven to myself and others that it's simply a waste of time to use when there are those who will get around it or figure it out just to prove they can.

As an evaluator, I have to get around them with some websites just to view their html coding, and it is a huge pain in the neck. But because I insist on not telling people they can't use it on their websites...this is the price I pay. I've tried to keep this website at the most simplest design in order to avoid would be thieves. What images you see are what you get. They aren't fantasy...they aren't anything special and that's the way I plan to keep it.

The "No Right Click" is suppose to stop these functions:

In some cases, this helps...but in most cases, if they want those images bad enough, they will get them anyway.

For my evaluations, it slows down the process of evaluating your site for this award. I can and do get around this coding, BUT, what should take me just a little while will take hours and in some cases even days to complete an evaluation of a website.

The "No Right Chick" stops the normal visitor from:

These are what most surfers are interested in doing with the right click function. The average surfer could care less about stealing your images or even the text you place on your website. It's when they are challenged by some that encourage them to learn the tricks to getting around them. Once challenged, most people tend to learn it or die trying and I've seen this happy to many webmasters and webmistresses. And all it does is upset the one being stolen from.

As for myself, tell me I can't and I will learn in spite of whatever I've been told. I take it as a challenge in most cases. Why...because it's like they're daring me to even try. Once the challenge is gone, I don't even care to try anymore. Why do I tell you this, because it's the right thing to do. It's the way I learned the tricks to getting around such JavaScript coding in the first place, and believe me, it wasn't worth all I went through. But at the same time, I learned some very valuable sessions.

 

The Pro's and Con's to the No Right Click Mouse Function

The pro's do not equal the con's and vs. via, and they are not something I recommend to most website builders. But when you weigh out the differences, 2 + 2 does not equal 4.

bullet

Do they help stop a thief?  In reality, NO.

bullet

Do they make surfing your website easier?  In reality, NO.

bullet

Is there any JavaScript coding for the "No Right Click" that can't be gotten around?  In reality, NO.

bullet

Does my award program leave it up to you to use or not to use it?  Not anymore. I've no choice but to change the criteria because of its over use.

In all fairness and honesty, the scripting is widely used. And it does help to some degree. But over all, it leaves you with a false sense of security that can lead to trouble. With this false sense of security comes a reality sooner or later, and sometimes it never comes. So here's some advice for you should you decide to use it regardless of what anyone says.

bullet

Never tell anyone they can't steal your images or information.

bullet

Be sure that you in no way leave even the smallest of challenges to the would be thief.

bullet

Always be courteous to your visitors and respect their intelligence.

bullet

Make a Copyright Notice on your site.

bullet

Make a Privacy Statement if you use forms for different things. An example would be a contact form such as the one on this website, by which applicants apply for my award.

bullet

And above all, use your common sense and knowledge collected about website design. In the long run, it pays off.

bullet

If you have a problem already, then do as you see fit for your site.
