    Posted By: arwen54 what does everyone think?
    I don't like it. Not very usable except for blogging backpackers? I'd still like to see a business/non-profit organisation theme
    actually, travel sites are extremely popular, so I don't know where you get that they are not usable...I beg to differ My opinion is that a contest should be fun! Not drudgery! that's why I absolutely loved the old OWD contests when we did a city theme, and a movie theme...they were fun!

    I agree with Karen. The contest should be about having some fun and trying something a bit different. One of the reasons (apart from the outcome) why the OR contest didn't work was because the remit for the contest was to design an "actual" site for a buiness - which is what a lot of us do every day!! I think a contest should be a chance to try something fun and not "work" related.

    why not make it a "design what ever you like" contest?

    I think the idea of themed contests is good. Maybe something with a color theme. Example, we have 3 main base colors (red, green, black) and then use them as creative as possible. Getting away from the typical blog design would be great. OD isn't in my eyes suppose to be "blog layout central". It's time for people to get creative and break the mold with something fresh and new design wise.

    Well I'm not getting any replies from either Joe or Christopher (I've tried multiple times), so if the majority of the 10 moderators will chime in and back me up, then I'll put up a contest and use the Kontera money I do have access to for prizes.

    I'm with you Sean....since Joe & Christopher have been absent, there's not much left to do but have the moderators decide. We need to determine a theme, prize amount(s) AND judges, then do it! :bakie: Odd for Christopher to be so quiet about this stuff. :tongue:

    I would be interested in judging. I don't have the time right now to compete but I would like to help with the contest in some way.

    I'd like to help out as well with the contest. I haven't been involved for a while, but now is the best time to get back into things. By the way, I think History or Aviation would be a good idea for a contest theme. Or even "redesign your favorite brand."

    I agree that it would be fun to have one based off a colour palette. Maybe one we could pick a palette from over at ColourLovers ?

    methinks we need to compile a list of suggestions and then have a poll to allow everyone to vote on their favourite competition idea

    I agree with greg... we need a new thread to compile contest ideas, maybe over a week or two, then have a vote... then roll with it.

    Um pete, did you catch the part about starting a new thread? :bakie: Adding more comments only makes this go on and on. It needs a new thread.

    in regards to the new thread: i really think this needs to be a poll, as adding ideas whilst the voting is going on will just get confusing.

    @greg: a poll would be good but that is something on the to-do list to fix. Check out the new thread for more information.

  23. Hmmm... not sure. It looks too techy to be blogger-friendly. Just my two cents worth.
