Freelancer Community Network - mutual link exchange

The idea behind this is to set up a giant Freelancer community network where you can reach any Freelancer site from any other Freelancer site.

To add your own site, you must have the Freelancer Community Network bar installed on your website.
It would be nice to have the network bar on any of your pages, but only displaying it on some sort of entry page is also sufficient.
Note however that the linked site should not be a placeholder to only draw visitors to your site. The linked site should be frequented by your general page visitors as well!
You ask why?
The main idea is to make the general visitor of the Freelancer Community aware of all the other great FL communities when visiting just one. This is an effort to unite the overall Freelancer Community, by simply establishing a "linked network".
Any Freelancer related site will be included if its meeting the following requirements:
- site has the FL Community Network bar installed on a frequently visited page
- site is related to Freelancer
- site does not violate any laws and does not contain porn, etc.. (use common sense here, we wont include questionable sites)

Features:
The Community bar is hosted at www.the-starport.net. The code you will include on your website will reference a javascript hosted on this site. This is necessary to always update any Network bar. This way, you only have to install the bar one time - after that you can forget about it.
The bar is featuring a drop-down menu when you hover over the Community Network image. It includes all the websites participating in the Community Network. There are 3 categories: General Community Links, Server/Mod Links, Clan Links.
Also, the bar features 5 random links on the right, 2 random links of General Community, 2 of Server/Mod and 1 of the Clan Links category.

How to install:
If you are experienced, there are several ways to integrate the bar into your website, and you should know about them.
If you are not experienced, the simplest way to integrate it is by appending the following code after the
Code:
<body>
tag.

Note, there are currently 2 different designs featured, a "brightblue" and a "darkblue" one.

Example for bright blue:

Code for bright blue:
Code:

If you are having problems with the integration or if you want to suggest changes to the codes, please respond.
You are obviously free to change the code to better fit in your webpage. It would also be wise to put the CSS stylesheet into the header of your website. For simplicity I put it directly next to the body code and so far it seems to work correctly with all browsers.
Also please respond if you want your link added, but please install the Network bar first.
If you think you really need a specialised design for your website (i.e. a yellow one), please respond.

I've added it to the top of my site, could you add a few more links so I can make sure it's functioning properly?

The placeholder links are in place because of the random links generation script, but hopefully it wont last long till there are no more "your link here" entries

Sorry, this is something different, its not the
"Starport Server Ring"
where you are already part of,
its the Freelancer Community Network

Its intential that there is no Starport in its name, so it has a better chance to be accepted as a general FL Community linkage.

Quick look:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!--Show_fl_community_PopupLinks("brightblue";--></script>

I think this doesnt work because the html comment tags might somehow not let the javascript execute if its all in the same line.
Try it like like that:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript"><!--
Show_fl_community_PopupLinks("brightblue";
--></script>

(it should have been that way if you just copied it out of this post)

Added @ all

@WTS: There seems to be a problem with your frameset.. maybe include the bar in the lower right frame instead of the top one..

Certainly yes, but at the moment its only the bar

Not a bad idea.
(wouldnt it be better to use the right side to display information about how sites can be added? -> just a thought)

bar already add:
SWAT Portal -> www.swat-portal.com (general)

bar will be added this evening:
Crossfire -> www.crossfire.swat-portal.com (mod/server)
BlasterUniverse -> www.blasteruniverse.swat-portal.com (mod/server)
BloodGuard -> www.bg.swat-portal.com (clan)
