Let's do the opposite to our last Website Design Competition

Create a three (3) page website dedicated to "The Past".

Please create something new and fresh - practice your skills! ;)

Rules:

* Your entry MUST contain your username anywhere on each of the pages
* Webpage design is strictly HTML and CSS only (with images)
* CSS is allowed of course and can be in a seperate file
* Please place images and CSS (if seperate from the html) in the same folder. In other words, ONE FOLDER FOR EVERYTHING.

You MUST also, after posting your entry, PM me a link to a .zip or .rar file with the .html doc and images in the one folder so I can put them up on the server for the final votes (All work remains copyright of yourself). Alternatively if you are a premium member you can attach your .zip/.rar file using the attachment feature provided.

Only one submission per user will be allowed.

You MUST have created the website yourself.

Any questions please ask in the thread. :D

Resolution: Please create with 800x600 users in mind.
Max total file size (inc images): 500KB
(Please ensure your entry meets the above before entering your piece - Entries not meeting critera will be notified by PM and given a couple of days to adjust it, but please get it right the first time) *poke*

Length: Competition closes on Monday, September 1st 2008 at 10:00 PM EST. Voting will last five days after close of competition.

Good luck and have fun!

A few questions;
File structures - if we have say, an images folder inside the root folder, is this fine as long as it's all proper in one folder?

Are points awarded/deducted for error-free coding, or is this strictly the design aspect?

Does the way we achieve the design matter? Would a top-down CSS design beat a table design?

Providing your submitting just the one folder and you're not silly with the amount of aditional folders then i have no problems having sub folders.

I would probably do the same if i ever get round to submitting an entry. I tend to always have photos or images in a folder of it's own for the very reason you say...to keep things clean and tidy.

By the way, depending on the turn out for this competition i might start making this a regular thing on Ozzu so we have a variety of competitions that don't necessarily focus on the Photograph or Graphic Design side of things.

The website ones may work better with a 6 week window, with a week voting and a week downtime before posting a new one, thus a 2 month window to get some interest.

So how far along is everyone ? :D

I've got may base layout nailed down. I'm putting together my first pages content now.
I'm deciding on styles for content elements like h2 abbr, acronym, and p as I go along with that so all I'll have to do with the other two pages is put the content together.

If nobody beats me to it, I'll probably set the bar tomarrow sometime. :D

I haven't even thought of a solid design yet. I was actually planning on making it with it's own CMS lol

edit- Hey joebert, how far back are you going?
Does anybody have any suggestions on what a good time period would be? I've been tossing a few ideas back and forth - I'll have to narrow it down eventually.

I have an excellent idea in my head but the know how and time isn't really with me. I do feel tempted to extend the length of the competition but i also feel that shy of 3 weeks is pretty good amount of time for at least a few entries.

We'll see how things go here, i'm really not sure what the next couple of weeks are going to be like for me as i'm moving to a new city next week.

I still have to do content for the second and third pages. I took a break and played some games with my next door neighbor last nite.

I'm going back to when I started with the entry, my content goes over the process I've been going through to make the design because I never paid attention in History class. :D

Another question here - the wording of the title says "dedicated" to the past - should this be in third person and reflecting or can we invoke the past through the site itself?

I know it's getting semantical here but I figured I'd try and adhere to the guidelines more than being original :P

The advantage of these competitions is it gives you the choice on how to interpret the idea of "The Past", so i'll leave this one up to yourself Neksus.

If all the competition entries are just like Joeberts then that is going to be one heck of a tough vote!

Once you've edited your submittion if you PM me the compressed file then that'll be your entry submitted.

I did hint this many times, but the deadline was moved. All entries are to be submitted by September 1st. So there is still plenty of time for other people to take part.

So what you're saying is I really should have started mine earlier...
It was going to be a scrapbook/blog written in the late 1800s about a time machine HG Wells found that he used to "predict" future devices...that looked like a notebook found in the 40s with scribbles and margins and whatnot...
Well at least we think alike :)

I guess one of the main points in the competition is to be as creative as you can and to provide some of your own work. In a way if i was to allow this i'd be accepting your entry which is in effect steal ng someone elses work and taking credit for it.

Unfortunately because of this, and the unfair advantage it may have, i will have to refuse any entries that are like that. The coding for every entry should be handwriten by the member submitting the work.

no no, I didn't mean stealing a template and submitting it- I meant taking something that I have created by myself- but it was created for another website. Example, if bob.com had the same contest that this forum is having now- and I created an entry on bob.com- can I use that same entry here?

I did notice the title. Sort of a grey area on whether or not to accept it. Hmm.

I think we'll be okay here considering it's not as if i stated it should be in the body of the pages.

Really good design. So far all the entries have been really good!

Not to go off topic and start the age old argument that's already got a long topic at OZZU, but try putting "grey" in a stylesheet for color and see what happens.

Thanks a lot, and yeah, I guess it is a bit of a suckup move, but I had to get two more characters and at first I thought I'd make up some but I found it funnier to add two members.

I used my Lorem Ipsum JS to give me content to work with, without actually filling the page with content.

I did the main layout using that, then went back and added the content. It's easier to have "<!-- 2-3 paragraphs -->" in the source than it is to have a block of ipsum there. It's nice being able to just change a number and have the amount of text generated change to see what will happen too. :D

Bogey, you should try 7zip. It does tar, gz, bzip2 (I think) and zip files as well as its own file type 7z. The best part is that it's free and open source!

10:10 here! I finally picked a theme and have pretty much got it rock solid - still need something to fill some "white space" and then write up one more page of content and she'll be golden.

Well, assuming I don't run into any problems going PSD->HTML.
The background/css hover better work!
