Post subject:  We need your help for a new website design!

Our website 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.

We need:
  • 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
  • Flash

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!
