I say we have a contest to draw a human man or woman digitally, nothing can be scanned or gotten from any other image source. Everything must be done digitally.

On a similar trend, how about a webdesign competition whereby all the pages must be smaller than, say, 5kb? i.e, any user could download the page in under a second...

Essentially, that means no graphics, flash, etc.. and coding to standards. I'd be game for that one. Pure HTML and Style...gotta luv it!

I'll need some more specifics? How can users check the size of the page (I am assuming it may be more then what the file is)? Also any other general things you could think of, I am game tho if you can get some specifics!

I think you'll need to slim down the options a bit more, "man or woman human" leaves it open to a billion different ways of doing it, and because of so many ways, it can be a bit boring (one could simply sketch out a human). Maybe some things like a supervillian/superhero or something like that, but not just "any human".

Hmm. How about no images? You might have to think of clever ways to produce some aesthetic design, either through color use in tables or javascript. The file size that results from a File->Save As should be no more than 5kb (and no links to external files).

It needs a theme, though. Maybe something like a frontpage for minimalist art, or 80s computer games. Any other ideas?

Does the competition involve only drawing, photos and pictures? Can it be programming? Or web design?

Yeah it should be able to be anything webmaster related. Programming and web design fit into that category. If you have a competition request along one of those subjects you should make it :)

I'd definatly like to see some suggestions towards web design or programming.

I was thinking of writing a series of scripts that had certain bugs in them that had to be fixed, and the first person to complete it would win. Any ideas on that?

How about the most dynamic javascript wins... Javascript code must not exceed 100 lines... can be of any form....

It's a cool idea, but would be hard to measure. The only way it would be worthwhile is to have unique handwritten javascripts. I mean, how do you tell if it's just not a modified pre-existing one? Normally that's what I do. Although I can write some of my own, it's so much easier to take a model and redo it to suit need.

I like the idea, but I think this would be extremely hard to monitor.

As an added note, my personal thought is that RichB would win this hands-down. Not to detract from any of our abilities, but I've watched a lot of his responses in other posts, and I think he's got the javascript nailed.

*lol Sitck with one thing before moving on to another. I think there's some curiosity about your javascript one (I know I am, but how to measure it is a consideration). What would you propose for the guidelines, and possible limitations besides length of code?

My thought would be make it a specific script to write -- say for example, most dynamic rollover script (or some such beast) there's so much to choose from. Perhaps as noted limit it to 100 lines, etc...

You'd probably have to specify parameters for the java one two.

We definitely need an avatar contest - not necessarily ones that have to go into the stock ones either!! They should be able to be personal ones too!!!

you'd win that 1. :-P


I think the most dynamic rollover link effect could be cool, I could think of some things i'd like to try/learn doing that.

Lets see what tey has to say.

we don't have enough entries, I was thinking of closing it today, but it is still only 3 entries... They all do have some closing date.

Something I always thought was interesting was to post 3 random photos and see what people can come up with using them in Photoshop.
