Anyone who thinks it takes less than 2 weeks to make a good unquie style is crazy
Innovation to a small extent is important. What I would hate to see is another one of those styles that are so heavily modified around images, that it just glomps the whole page together in one messy compacted look.

Something simple yet professional appearing, and carefully designed, like the Sitepoint forums. Whatever style is made, I think there should be a light and dark version of it. Some people, like myself, enjoy high contrast colors (like the blue version of vB.org). Being a coder, and spending many many hours at the PC, bright colors just kill your eyes. On the other hand, others would find bright colors to be more appealing.

If I had the time, I'd give a shot into this contest..

well it is a choice of designer but I can say that such a style does not have much chance. We are looking for something simple and clean as announced. We are already hacked and have potential to be hacked more so a lot of changes in the templates is not something we are looking for.

Or to be more specific: If we are not pleased by some changes we'll just overwrite them.

So the most important thing is the style / colors / buttons /header / footer part.
if you have an overwhelming postbit idea but we don't like it, your style can win as well, but we'll most likely remove the postbit-changes then

And no one thought about this prior to starting the contest?

I'll work on it... only problem is I normally get $250 for a skin lol, but since I have noone to do work for right now I'll probably enter... would you prefer the skin to be a darker themed skin or lighter one?
Thanks

i think the best option would've been to have finalists at the stage of gold and then give them 2 weeks to update templates.
