Can we assume an internal stylesheet is permitted? I seriously doubt that I could code a web page any longer without it. And is it required to validate, or will invalidly coded pages be accepted?

Naa, I just had an urge to do a bunch of comps so other skilled people can join in not just budding photographers. Also I got sick of myself promising to do some different ones :D

The other grand thing is the comps finish the day I get back from Spain, so everyone will have plenty of time to think something up :thumbsup:

I think you should still give one or two of them a go, no matter where you are at with your skill level - because its all for the fun of learning and showing off where your currently at :D

Great, another person saying how fun their life is and saying how they are going on holiday. Hm.

I will probably give the comp a shot, just not in the immediate future.

Gday Coderx, you'll need to have designed the site yourself - of course we can only rely on your honesty, so if you cheat then its your karma I guess :D

Page full of fish? Naa just an animal of your choice, ATNO just happened to choose a fish theme :D

When you say i have to send you the code & the images do you mean like this:

I send the HTML/CSS document with for example IMG1 in the space where img one is place? so i would send that along with image1??

I will give a preview very soon anyway. Only just finished the basic layout mind.

Basically musik will give you the email to send it to. The easiest way to do this is code your page so all your image files are in an "image" directory. Then zip the html page, the css file and the image directory into one zip file and attach it to the email. Musik will be able to recreate it from that.

Firefox and IE seem to the two mjor ones, but others do use Opera and others.

If you design it correctly you will find it will work in all of them, if you need some tips visit the web design section as there are plenty of posts on compatibility :D

A few more questions :D

Can you use JavaScript? I am guessing no, but i'm not sure.
Can it be interactive, by using CSS and/or JavaScript to change/modify things, or does it need to be static?
Does it need to be a real animal? or can it be a fictitious one?

I asked the question about browsers because IE doesn't support some/most CSS well, like position:fixed, :before, :after, and ^/$/*/~ selectors.

You can use javascript if you wanted to I guess (now your getting too technical haha). It can be interactive, but it cant use flash etc, the whole point is to use your skill in html and or css to create a webpage.

The animal can be anything you want real or ficticious as long as its known as an animal (now your getting too technical again haha).

Coderex,

Also, please note that you need to create a subdirectory called "images" and place your image files there. (When I looked at your link earlier, they are currently not in an images directory) You'll need to adjust your image path accordingly in your code. (It is probably best to use relative links so Musik will not have to edit your final code).

According to the rules for this competition:
Quote:
Webpage design is strictly HTML and/or CSS only with images (placed in a folder called 'images')


Normally it's not necessary to do that, however, I believe it's mostly just to make it more convenient for Musik to put up the voting links if all the images are in just one place.

Also, is this 200 KB filesize limit equal to 200000 bytes or is it 204800 bytes? I presently assume 204800 bytes because 1024 bytes per kilobyte is more standard.

I believe I can safely we'll allow some small amount of leeway on that (but only a small leeway given the "technical" point you noted). It really shouldn't be hard to do, though. My entry with 16 graphics not counting the offsite validation images weighs in at roughly 66KB . I'm rather certain that the reason Rose implimented a limit is to encourage our members to practice some skills to create pages that do have a fast page load and are not bogged down by "heavy" images.

:thumbsup:

200kb for one single page is not so hard to obtain. It just means you need to learn how to adjust image filesizes accordingly and not bloat html code.

Well, that's something I never quite understood with Firefox. I'm looking at page info and my entry in general is 6.56KB -- I've always assumed that was text. Not counting the offsite validation media I have 15 thumbnails, all weighing in at approx 2KB each (so we'll call that roughly 30 KB) and I already know my "Owl" gif is 30KB (I didn't know what I was doing back then to optimize it and just copied it.).. That's how I come up with my 66KB rough estimate.

I think you may be misunderstanding coderx. Your entry must contain one of each of those items listed, but you need at least one of each of the three items listed. I thought the word "must contain" made it pretty evident that you needed one of each.

At the moment your page contains an animal and your handle. Now you need to incorporate a poem and you'll be all set.

I will do that, but i can assure you that the sentence there does not put accross that therory, it says :

Your entry MUST contain one of the following:

Now to me that puts accross one of the next things need to be on the page, not all, or it should say:

Your entry MUST contain all of the following:

Can I just ask if everyone understand my rules -

You can use as many images as you would like, as many colours etc - however one of the images must be an animal (of any kind)

I just notice some people are not using many graphics and I wondered if maybe I wasn't clear enough in my first entry.

It doesnt matter so much for this one, but for future ones I can make my first posts better and clearer :D

They were quite clear to me. I used lots of pictures. Oddly, most of them qualified under the Animal specification, although the Salmon was actually dead at the time. Probably hasn't occurred to many that Homosapiens are indeed an animal, so my picture alone would have qualified *wink

But no, other than the one point about one of each of the three required items need be included which was accounted for already, your instructions were fine.

I consider some quotes to be very poetic. I'm no writer and also don't know the difference between different types of writtings.
The instructions state "poem" so I'm assuming a quote is not acceptable. But I just wanted to check :D

I think you have not read the rules properly: Firstly it is mean to be a single page. And it has to be just HTML not CSS or XHTML as i see yours is. Sorry.

Apart from that it is a very nice entry! :)

Correct. Musik is on Holiday until the 8th when the competition expires, so she probably won't get back around to followup until the 9th.

BTW meep - Burnt_Raven has a point. Really, the "More" page is the only page that contains all the qualifying parts. It needs to be a single page and your more page qualifies.

Just do a quick redo of it and make that page your entry, and it will be fine.

Technically, it is just a single page - clicking on a tab just makes a certain <div> visible. Whether each tab is relevant to the competition is another story.

That is why I asked if we could use JavaScript,
musik wrote:
meep wrote:
A few more questions :D

Can you use JavaScript? I am guessing no, but i'm not sure.
Can it be interactive, by using CSS and/or JavaScript to change/modify things, or does it need to be static?
Does it need to be a real animal? or can it be a fictitious one?

I asked the question about browsers because IE doesn't support some/most CSS well, like position:fixed, :before, :after, and ^/$/*/~ selectors.


You can use javascript if you wanted to I guess (now your getting too technical haha). It can be interactive, but it cant use flash etc, the whole point is to use your skill in html and or css to create a webpage.

The animal can be anything you want real or ficticious as long as its known as an animal (now your getting too technical again haha).


Also, If you turn JavaScript off it will work and function as a single page, It will even work with CSS off. And I also think it will work in FF and Opera correctly, IE almost correctly, and it should still work in other browsers.

Well, it's definitely a unique interpretation, however, I'm not certain it meets the intent of the rules for the competition. Like I said, when Musik gets back, since she runs the comp, we'll leave the qualifying up to her. Personally I'm impressed with the idea, but that's just me. meep, just to be safe, have an alternative ready that meets what I think is the intent. One page that immediately meets the requirements. In otherwords, not have to search around the different links for your poem inclusion.

With all that said, I like what you did. It took the idea a step beyond what I think we were expecting. So don't work too hard to change it. I think Musik may accept it since it technically qualifies. Very interesting approach, indeed.

Hi folks! I am back from holiday and will get around to messaging you all to send me your entries asap. It may take a few days to get it all sorted out as we have a number of comps ending on the one day, but we'll get there so thanks in advance for your patience :D

I've decided to accept all entries, even though some don't kinda fit the criteria - its a new comp and I am really pleased with all the new entrants, this is the main objective of running the comps, so for this one I will be more lenient - but wait for the next one *evil laugh*
