CSS Journal Contest
Ok, now i've been hearing alot of non-subscribed deviants of how they're frustrated that they aren't subscribed in order for them to use CSS in their journals. And I can understand their frustration. So just to help ya guyz out am gonna hold this small little (lol?) contest ;)


Show your support for this contest by placing this badge www.deviantart.com/view/408454… in your journal (for subscribed deviants only). A preview of this badge can be seen in this journal on the top right hand corner.

Contest Details

The contest is open to only non-subcribers and subcribers whose subs are gonna end pretty soon (if your subcription is ending on/before 31st October, you are eligible to participate). The subs that are to be given away are for people who intend to use CSS in their journals, so if you aren't interested in wanting your journal to look stylish then please let people who want to use it take part :)... and spread the word 'coz everyone should take part otherwise it's no point, we need the pimpage... this is a community project and you're the community, so spread the word ;)

Maximum 2 designs per deviant

Deadline: 31th October 2006
(Deadline extended)

All you have to do is design an image of how you would want your CSS journal to look like, in photoshop or other image-editing software (don't worry about the coding/programming part as we'll be taking care of that) and send me a note titled "CSS contest" with a link to your css design which should be uploaded to your dA gallery. Submit your entries into the Community Projects -> Contests -> CSS Journal Contest category please. You are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 designs. There'll be more than one winner.

Here are some examples of good css styled journals around dA for you to get inspiration for your own design (Click on images to view)
Please don't ask me to include your design in this set 'coz I won't. The first rule is don't ask. If I find your journal to be inspirational, I will add it here myself.

The deadline for entries is on/before the 31st of October 2006, so you got plenty of time.

So with that said, design away. We're looking forward to your entries :D

So to sum it up;

u serious? awesome :bucktooth:

Wow, this took awhile for me to respond to :o My apologies, although I have been trying to think of something really .. umm, like me? I dunno.. I like monochrome colors (shades), dead flowers, nothing too flashy but enough to get someone's attention subtly. Not emo, I can be, but that's not what I want displayed on my page :giggle: I really don't know what else to say. I'd rather leave it up to you, see what you come up with.. I do have one request though.. If you don't mind, may I have a copy of the actual code? The step by step procedure you put together to make it? I have to learn how to do this myself and I learn better if I have something to learn from rather than something telling me how to do it. :slow: I don't expect you to include any explanations or spark notes.. just the code itself would be greatly appreciated. :heart:
duhcoolies's avatar
lol of course, u get the code anyway so why ask lol ;p
i'll see what design i can come up with :D
tmpst24myst's avatar
:confused: Maybe I did mean the long version.. :o
duhcoolies's avatar
hehe :D kewl... it's not that big a deal to have a small tutorial going for it. I'll include that when giving u the code :D
