I beg to differ sheeze - as soon as I saw your design submissions, they looked like a copy of mine.. but I didn't say anything, hoping the CH would see this. Thanks to the others who thought the same and voiced their opinion.
My design has evolved from the original wireframe after feedback and my own take on that feedback. Your positioning of the logo, the navbar - right down to the 'current page arrow indicator', the tagline area bg, the position of the thumbnails, the 3 columns of 'action boxes' etc., the address in the footer, which wasn't asked for in the wireframe, that was my own idea..... I don't think I need to go on.... Your black version is a *little* different but still based on my design.... Your blue entries were virtually identical to mine.
I've been around here a long time as you know and I know a rip when I see one :-(
One thing I do agree with is that any one can enter until the last minute, but at least come up with an original design.
What do you want designed?
