Rules and disclaimers

This is an experimental project. I’ll try and plan to keep it running, but no guarantees.

If you want to make sure you can keep your designs, you can export your space into a plain HTML and CSS file.

Making a space private removes it from the lists and makes it visible only to it’s logged in owner.

If you use this space to bother anyone I will reserve the right to delete your space, generally I’ll try and warn in combination with making the space private.
