Design contest
« on: August 24, 2007, 08:12:58 AM »
Hello!

We would like to redesign the repository pages.  (These are the static pages, that just give information - history, appearances, etc).  I would like to see what you would design for these pages.  I know there are allot of talented people on this site.  The one we like the best will have their design put on the site and will get a prize. 

At the moment the prize is GG T-shirt, however I will be looking for a Gambit Collectible to award the winner with as well. 

The deadline for entries is October 31st.  (The day we put this site back up from its days of being gone!, an anniversary for this incarnation of the site).

Tips hat to CrazyDragon who thought up the idea!  Thanks CD.

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Oh, and bonus points will be awarded for a pure CSS design (no tables).  >:D

Because someone has to ask... you're looking for a demo with graphics and layout, not an actual full redesign until the winner's chosen... right?

I would like to try, but what do you mean by a demo? Um I'm not so good with computer terms(or maybe it's the allergies talking). Can someone please post an example pic of what you mean?
God Bless,

Just a design, not a completely built page. Just an example of how you would like the pages to look like.

Exactly. You'd set up your graphics, your layout, where your links would go, how you'd style your text, but you don't build the whole site. Just one page of what it'd look like with your CSS/html/whatever. :)

Can we see a headcount?

Who's building something for this?

I'm still gathering up ideas for this. I'm so uninspired these days.

I think you are right Spec.  It's a great idea and not sure if there is any interest in doing it. 

So - Who would be interested in doing this???
