needs help. Badly. Its a sad combination of my poor design skills and lack of time.
Below are a few lists of things that we need to accomplish with this design.
- Current news about nightstar ticker
- Server information
- How to guide "To Nightstar"
- Forum Links
- Links to chat
- At least two spots to put some advertising (This will likely be a blend of custom advertising and global advertising)
- Flexibility to be able to add content easily. Either through a CMS or statically.
- Smooth design that can be easily modified
We would consider:
- Spot for Polls
- AJAXy interface, but in a sane fast way
Things we would like to avoid:
- Dark colors - I know we're Nightstar, but we don't need to be branded that way
So theres the stipulations. Heres how it will work:
You will submit your design
. Then on April 1, 2012 we will lock the thread and pick the top designs. Shortly after we will post a poll of the designs and let the community have a say in which designs they like the best. After that poll is over we will pick the winner.
Heres what you will win:
- We will link provide a link to your website at the bottom of every page
- A custom Title on the Zoo with anything you want!*
- A non-expiring Nickname and Channel on the IRC network **
- A custom vhost on the IRC network*
- Bragging rights to say that you designed the website
This is within reason because we will not allow anything that is considered offensive. We will be the final say of what is "considered offensive".**
Any nickname that you currently own is eligible. Also if you do not have a channel you may give the gift to any non-Network Administration channel with permission from the owner
Most important. Have Fun!
