Quote from: Tony on September 13, 2004, 01:19:41 PMIt certainly took the dev team more than 50 hours to create this wonderful forum, and you dont see the dev team moaning about about giving it away for free.QuoteHmm... Well, $100 and a Charter Membership for something that is potentially 50+ hours of work isn't much... frankly I think your taking the p*ss

Quote from: bostasp on September 13, 2004, 01:37:32 PMI think $100 and a Charter Membership for first prize is actually quite generous.It's a way to get more involved in the project, to show us your creative side, and to give us something to look at . Quite frankly, if you create a theme purely thinking about how many hours size up to the prize, then you shouldn't be participating in the contest.I believe you can work in groups on a design.
Quote from: Burpee on September 13, 2004, 05:05:27 PMI just personally think it doesn't feel like much... If I'm going to give my heart and soul in a project like this and I end up with $100 and a Charter Membership it just feels like relatively little to me...Maybe next contest you guys can have a prize that will make people remember what they did... a tangible and symbolic thing... instead of seeing $100 added to your bank account...But then again... you do also get the fame of having created the best theme... which is a bigger award than that $100 and that Charter Membership...

QuoteThe competition commonly is for anyone who are ready to enter and/or want to enter.
QuoteCould you be a little more specific about the rules.for example Is it allow or not to use some graphics from SMF package such as those little icons?
QuoteAnd it would be nice to give extra points for the theme that is a valid XHTML,cross browser support, and/or something that will encourage the creator to take the care to create an interoperable Web page.

Quote from: CP on September 14, 2004, 08:52:12 AM*Rant BeginsI am sorry, but I am totally amazed how this thread has gone.An offer for the members here that "wish" to contribute their work and "win" a Charter Membership = $50 and $100 US.For what? Nothing.Most people here are eager to contribute to this site that gives them this software and even more for those that choose to be members and pay the small fee. (Trust me, it is small compared to some boards)What is with complaints about the finances and how they are attributed amongst the staff or not? I'm sorry but what does that have to do with the price of tea in China and why should this be your business to know? Do you have some small take in this company? I do not really think that is important nor the original intent of this thread.Why do people choose to take things off of topic and pursue their own sense of gratification rather than sticking to topic at hand and opening another thread for their babble on the finances and their allocation?*Rant EndsGreat idea here [unknown] and I am sorry this thread does not appear to be a more positive response to this contest.
