1/. No cheating. This means no forced voting, no non-24 hour links, no scripts, no proxy traffic, no bulk traffic and no link dumping. If you choose to employ blind links on your site, be sure that you also have a Top Toon Sites banner/graphic link in a prominent and proud position on your site to offset such shady traffic exchanges. Violators will be removed immediately without notification. We seek REAL traffic, not blind, forced, bribed or mislead traffic. Sites may be called upon to account for their out-going traffic. And if things don't add up, or we suspect any trickery, your account will be deleted and domain banned.
2/. Your Account Info: Be sure that you have the reciprical link field completed in your account so when we routinely visit your site we are able to find the MAIN link responsible for the bulk of your traffic. Do NOT use all CAPITAL letters in your site name.

Sites who violate this will have their titles and/or description edited. Repeat offenders will have their accounts deleted.

3/. Your Banner: Your banner must be hosted on your own domain. ie The domain where TopToonSites is sending the traffic must be the same domain that is housing the banner.
