vBulletin.org New Style Competition! Prizes: Free vB and Hivemail licenses!!!

Alright, members, now is the time to get the creative juices going!

In order to celebrate the upcoming update of vBulletin.org to vBulletin 3, we are going to revamp our style. We are giving members a chance to be immortalized forever in the vB.org Hall of Fame, and get their names embedded in our footer templates by choosing the top 2 best styles submitted in our Style Competition.

We are not even asking for something too complicated. All we want is a nice HEADER, FOOTER and NAVBAR, as well as BUTTONS and COLOR SCHEME. This includes our INDEX PAGE. Remember, we will need the buttons as eitehr gif or jpg, and we will require the psd's as well. Note as well that all rights in the design will be handed over to vBulletin.org on submission, and the style must be exclusive to this site, and not be resold or redistributed.

The Best Style will get a vB License courtesy of Jelsoft. The Runner-Up will get a Hivemail license courtesy of Hivemail. Best of all, you will get a special custom user title, username in our footer and fame and glory for the rest of your days.

Rules to participate:
  • You must have a valid vBulletin license
  • You can submit multiple Styles, as long as everyone is created by yourself
  • You have to submit the style.xml, buttons (names as on standard vb3), psd's of the buttons, a screenshot of how the style will look
You don't have to modify any other templates than the mentioned header, footer, navbar. You can, but it's not required, nor it'll give you better chances to win. Even we can decide not to use every of your modified template.

Post every style in a new thread within our new Style Contest Forum
You can just see your own threads in there. We will inform the winners when they're choosen.

We suggest you start with the button creations, as the templates may change through the Betastages

Good luck to all of you

Nope, the jury is vb.org staff and also if wanted jelsoft members.

As we want to surprise the members with the new style, a member rating isn't possible

Sounds like a good idea. Will you be doing a top ten or something like that so us mortals can see who were the runners up?

You can expect buttons to change also in the final vB3 style. Some may come, some may go...

We have no fix end date yet, as it depends on the RC and final Date of vb3 somehow.

We'll inform you early enough about any ending dates
We just started it as early as possible, so you have enough time for it
