frequently asked questions
Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions that I get sent through the site's CONTACT form. Hopefully these help.
Q: How do you pronounce your name (RAQ) and what does it mean?
A: It's pronounced ROCK. It's actually an abbreviation for my full name, but we won't go into details.

Q: What does the SBD stand for?
A: Again... we won't go into details, but it has many meanings. It mostly stems from when I used to play OUTLAWS on The Zone and would creep around the maps undetected.

Q: What programs do you use for your Walls,Icons, Skins.... etc.?
A: I mostly use PhotoImpact 7 for the bulk of my digital enhancements. It's not as popular as a lot of those other digital art programs out there, but I enjoy using it.

Q: Didn't you used to run GINA GERSHON SANCTUARY?
A: Yes I did for many years. It became increasingly expensive, time consuming and Gina and her lawyers wanted the rights to the web address, so I relinquished my ownership.

Q: Why are most of the wallpapers 1280 x 800?
A: Since getting an HP Pavillion widescreen laptop, I've been making walls exclusively to fit its dimesions.

Q: Can you make a specific wallpaper, icon, avatar, skin...etc.?
A: I have taken requests in the past, but wasn't able to keep up with the amount of requests. If there is something in particular that you want created, it doesn't hurt to ask & if I'm in a good mood that day, I may be able to help you out. ;)

Q: How do I get my site listed on your links page?
A: It's really easy. Just click on the LINKS EXCHANGE link and fill out the form. If I like your site and its content I'll put it on the page.

Q: Why do you have a website & a LIVE JOURNAL?
A: I've had my personal website for soooo long that it has sentimental value. The LJ I can update easy and from anywhere but doesn't have the same cababilities as Raq's World so I've opted to keep them both.

Q: Can you host some of my "STUFF" on your site?
A: I do have space to host ICONS & WALLS, but only if I feel the content of such items doesn't violate any of Raq's World guidelines.

Q: C'mon, do you really hate Green Bay Packers fans?
A: HATE is such a harsh word. I would much rather say that I dislike the Packers. I would have to put them in the same category as Brussel Sprouts, "W", and root canals.
