Why can't I right-click on the site?

    Is there any particular reason why I can here, but not on the actual site? It's gotten me quite curious.

    because that makes it harder to steal from the site.

    Okay, I suspose that is a good reason.

    Kataki complete.

    As stated above, it's to help prevent artwork and stuff from being stolen.

    BTW, I could right-click on Serebii.net when I used Opera.

    To stop doing what? Prevent right-clicking? I can screen grab anyway.

    Typo been a while

    lawl.

    It's to protect people from stealing the info on the site easily. Although, anybody trying to steal that has a brain would just hit "Print Screen" on their keyboard to steal art, and click "View" and then "View Source" to take text.

    Or, you know, use a non-shitty browser.

    Then again, this is pretty much just a blockade against the biggest retards out there anyway, so it's effective enough.

    Indeed, it doesnt completely block it....thats impossible to do...but it slows the idiots
     
  12. But Joe, people on the Opera browser have no trouble at all, as in 0, simply Copy Pasting from the site.

    Firefox and a few others have to highlight etcetera, and then some images have a black background, etc....

    I know, but over 85% of the sites visitors use IE

    As I said...it slows down the idiots

    Lawl, but please allow us to right click in IV calculators, it makes it easier to copy paste you information there.

    I use firefox but it dont let me right click weird.Could be im using firefox 3 beta 5 but it dont matter i guess cause the only thing i would use it for is to view things in different tabs.

    chaos on the internet AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    Is it worth pissing off legitimate visitors? The majority of sites that would copy information so blatantly don't receive visitors, and webmasters of sites that receive visitors will know how to steal your information anyway. Your solution to the problem is pretty lose/lose ;194;
