Title: YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: Joseph Fung on January 29, 2003, 09:34:40 AM
This is the second time we're running this contest - and like last time the same prize is up for grabs - a free CD of your choice (within reason of course ;D) from HMV.com

The goal of the contest this time is not just to make a cool site, but to incorporate the logo that was chosen, and to minimize bandwidth (i.e. try not to use huge crazy graphics, or tables that are overly complex).

This contest will run until February 19th, or until we find something we really like.

could you please make the .psd readdy for download so that we can work with that?
Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: mephisto_kur on January 29, 2003, 09:59:04 AM
That would be a good idea.

Also, how are we submitting the template?
Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: Jeff Lewis on January 29, 2003, 10:18:38 AM
I will post the PSD later if I can find it at home (computer crashed so may not have it).

Best way would be to have it on a site somewhere. Failing that, email it to us...

Redesigning the "front side",
or all the different pages?
(Like /index.php, /forum/, /download.php ...)

Give us one template and we'll apply it everywhere. The overall look so menus and navs...

Attached should be the PSD file everyone needs...

Teh Template


"The" Template?
Is there "one"?

@Jeff:

So, just one page,
like the front side?

Or is it also possible to design
the forum/index.php with a menu somewhere?
(Like here, with the menu left and top!)

Hi Jeff,

I'll try my hand.  What colors are the theme going to be base?  The standard YaBB SE or something new?  Would a transparent gif or png file be useful?  What are the dimensions you need.

Thanks

you do know a free cd aint gonna get you many great entries.
unless there willing to do it for pretty much nothing.
sorry but a free cd is like $10
the great stuff ive seen are selling for nothing less than $40 sorry
Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: Michele on January 29, 2003, 05:24:32 PM
Sorry Trevsweb, you got it wrong... why would anyone pay $40 for a template for a forum that's free under the GPL?

Most of us here share our templates, heck, there's even a site dedicated to it where we can download templates all day for free.

Geesh! :)

Instead of asking for more money or more expensive CD why not make it because you wanna say thanks to the makers of the YaBB SE. Because like Mad Moya said, it is FREE to begin with. You don't see the YaBB SE trying to charge for this program that is more complex than a freakin forum and website template! Sorry, I tend to get angry very easy... and I was at the DMV for 3 hours this morning so I'm a little edgey too :(

/me is calming down and getting back to work.

Killer Possum, I edited your post, lets all calm down ;)

Trevsweb, that;s fine, we've had several great submissions before. We're not buying one, we're holding a contest...

If the "prize" isn't good enough, nobody is obligated to make a template :)

Hmm, nobody wants to submit a template, maybe we should charge for our software? ;)  ;D

Mad Moya is right though, the community here is great and that's why we took this to the community :)

YaBB SE Test (link not there cause I'm changing it :)) IF you like it (and that's a big IF) you can change what ever graphics you want too.

That's a sexy layout Killer Possum, but it doesn't really fit with the happy, kind of playful nature of the logo.  It's a little too corporate.  Cool stuff! Keep it up!

Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: Chris Boston on January 30, 2003, 07:51:22 AM
Would you prefer the template to have the same board colours as it has now, or a new, fresh look? I like the colour scheme you have now, would you mind if the stylesheet was left basically the same, but just the design of the rest of the template was different (i.e. menus etc) ?

But then I could always submit a YaBB 1 Gold style board, black with orange/yellow links and that ;D

Oh and hello btw ;) haven't been around for a while now. :-\

Okay I have announced it in an article on the main page over at Forum-Forum, nice little announcement...check it out :)

I may post it other places too, as I feel this is a deserving contest and we should get some quality designs in here!

This will benefit both parties...YaBBSE gets a new design, a talented designer gets credit for designing a high profile site!

Anyways good luck to all...I would enter but I dont have time for freelance work anymore :(

Hey I have a neat idea for the new site :) I noticed that you can register your YaBB SE site and then it shows the latest registered site for you too look at.

Well why don't you make a new selection that says 'Would you like to have your YaBB SE board on our Featured YaBB SE Board page' (or something) and then if they say yes it will add it to a section called Featured YaBB SE sites. That way potential users can see how cool and customizable YaBB SE really is!

Well it's just a thought :)

but i thought i might as well ask hehe

Well I tried to make it simple, hence only the use of 2 major colours.

I don't want to give the actual menus too much colour coz then it distracts users from the main body of the site, which isnt there yet lol.

GOnna try some stuff still..

I'm working on a design for my site right now so currently I can't come up with any html (it would be unfair hehe), though if I did it would be identical or better looking then the above pic because of little tweaks one always makes along the way.

Since I will have free time to work with it after February 12th (sorry guys, it's exam period), please feel free to make your template based on this one (if you like it,  obviously)... For any kind of help, just mail or im me  :)

Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: TempusFugit on January 31, 2003, 04:32:44 PM

TempusFugit, what zipping program do you use???


WinZip... It handles perfectly the bmp files (a simple but efficient way to share graphics without loosing quality ;)). Don't forget though that most of the image is only white...
Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: Killer Possum on January 31, 2003, 05:19:31 PM
Yes I know... it's just that the program I use seems to zip my image files and it sucks at making it smaller. For instance a .bmp that is 1,234kb will shrink to 1,224 or something :( I will try the same images with WinZip and see what happens, personally I think the program I'm using isn't that great (Alladin Stuffit 7.5 for PC). It's not as simple as WinZip :-\

I think that both are great, but also bandwidth intensive.

Look at the current site.... it looks nice, and it doesn't take terribly much bandwidth.

However, disregarding bandwidth, I must say - those look great!

I like that last one as well. It seems a bit simplistic after the previous one, but thats not necessarily a bad thing -- and it should definitely load faster, if put together correctly. Plus I think it does a fair job of integrating the friendliness of the logo with the professionalistic image the current design portrays.

Edit: Yes, I'm aware that professionalistic isn't a word. ;)

Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: alienine on February 01, 2003, 05:39:20 AM
Cool thanks for surprisingly positive comments and tears... I knew I made people cry but never like this! LOL

Heck I love the ones by matt@tcd and TempusFugit and I'd be happy to loose to any two of them!

Sizes for my entry.

ok the image in the topleft corner takes about 9.25K, the headers and top menu item backgrounds are about 0.5-1 K big, but they are mostly the same image, the rest is neglegible, since its YaBB content. There would also be more psacing between the actual menu items, as default by html... but that's not talking file sizes lol

I say at MOST the actual design including tables would be around 12-20 K (at most) (that's not the actual images that are the bulk of the load but in fact the html. I saved the source of one of yabb's pages... the register install one, i got rid of the content and left the menus there, the page itself is 18.5 KB! Images, excluding background images are 11.2 KB!)

People the sizes for the designs here will vary, but by around 10 KB at most, loading times aren't that much of a concern once the images cache, the actual pages are... which is out of the hands of the designer.

is fast, and im gonna change the top cuz i dont like too much. well, tell me ehat you people think

The Nav menu on the left looks good, but the logo should be better placed. Otherwise there is too much freespace on the top right corner.

@aliencowfarm
http://clan.dnainternet.net/toohot/public/tiedostot/YFP.png looks great. Somehow, I like the navmenu of strike2death more, because it has a more serious look. strike2death use more edges instead of roundings for the topicdescriptions in the navmenu. That's what I like

Just my 2 cents

I've just started a design now. I've tried to make it simple but effective, including the logo and slogan into it. The template will stretch to fit any screen resolution as it's 100% in width.

First attempt (http://members.lycos.co.uk/chrisboston/images/yabbse.gif)

The template is below 5kb and the logo is 11kb, I think I could optimise it and make it smaller but it'll do for now, plus it'll get cached anyway.

Let me know what you think so I can change anything you think could be improved before I submit it please ;)

Here is my first attempt:

http://www.hubacher.net/yabbsesupport/template07-90.jpg (http://www.hubacher.net/yabbsesupport/template07-90.jpg)

It is a technically very simple done, just some tables, with the colors adapted to the colors of the new logo.  The board template should then either use gray shadings only or also use the new logo colors. My screenshot shows an attempt with the community template also using the new logo colors. Of course there would be some additonal detail work to be done, but I suppose one gets the idea.

If I have some time I can activate the template in my next beta install, however this will probably not be before next wednesday since I have several projects deadlines.

Thanks to alienine for giving me the idea of the on/off buttons (hope it's not a problem that I used it too). As for the bandwidth I believe that with some tricks and a good css usage there won't be much problem...

Anyway, I hope you like this one and once again feel free to use any elements for your template  :)

Nested quotes can go as deep as your browser can handle nested tables.

I remember back when I was on 28.8 with Prodigy Web Browser (*shudders*) - if a page nested more than say 8, it crashed... even more, you could only have one window/download going at one time.

Ugh... it was torture.

i like the aliencowfarm the best but those teal hightlights for the menu titles make me sick...maybe a different blue would be better and not quite so shiny

I might have some time tomorrow to make somewhat difrent  ;).

YEah the bear print can easily be change theres no problem with that, it was just a way to keep the welcome note seperate from the rest of the page to create a contrast and attract the eye to the page in different ways.

But what do you think of the LOOK of this?

I agree that we should do it for free...
I have one question though: does YabbSE offer the possibility to choose and apply different templates or is the winning template gonna be "the one" and those who don't want it will have to work the code?

If YabbSE has such a feature, can you enlighten me about it?

If it doesn't have such feature, do you know if it will any time soon?

And, lastly, the site MICHELE is talking about... what site is that?

Thanks! YABB rocks!

:o

Mate do you have YaBBSE installed?

The option is in the admin panel, which you have to be Administrator to get into.

Also that is kinda off-topic so why don't you either post elsewhere, or look around the site. The second option will probably save you the embarrasment.

Sorry to everybody if I have generated so much coughing ([Unkown] i will buy you a cold medicine)...

Gastovski, I know there is an "Edit your Template" function in the admin (yes I do have it installed indeed) but I was wondering/asking/suggesting if there is a way to alter the looks of what is actually inside the main <yabb main>, basically the colors, the backgrounds etc... I am not embarassed to ask this but I apologize if I asked it in the wrong section.

Jeff Lewis, thanks for pointing it out "kindly". I know what you are doing here and again I apologize if I am in the wrong spot.

I won't take up more of your time in developing the template as long as somebody whispers (or coughs) some sense into Jamesweb ;-)

Well, here is one
http://www.microcyb.com/yabbse/dark_yabb.html



you might want to make that look decent in 1024, etc.  It's too size limitting.

alienine's is also a bit to restrictive and graphics-having.  Try to repeat graphics as much as possible (whether horizontally or vertically...) and cut down on extraneous images.  This site goes over its bandwidth limits already, it doesn't need a consumptive host template. (I must be tired... :/)

So the contest is still open Jeff? Any room for new contribution?

BTW, when I imported the PSD file into my software (Xara X) it was treated as one single image. Any possibility of providing them in another format e.g Photoshop's .EPS or Illustrator's .AI or Corel's .CDR?

Well, usually you just click the button on the images bottom right corner to expand it, but if you want to turn it off completely go to Tools->Internet Options...->Advanced and uncheck 'Enable Automatic Image Resizing' in the Multimedia section.

uncheck auto image resizing

p.s.: do you have all the buttons that are used with yabb in conjunction with a "supermod" installation?

Title: Re:YaBB SE Template Contest
Post by: SASH on April 04, 2003, 03:57:13 PM
Since no official announcement has been released to close the contest, I assume a late entry won't harm...

The theme features the 3 logo colours and a combination of YaBBY images. I tried to be consistent with the general essence of YaBB SE site with slight modification.

You can view a screenshot of the theme here:
http://emedsol.com/sasdesign.png (http://emedsol.com/sasdesign.png)

Furthermore, I used one of my forums to test the theme, so you can also enjoy (hopefully) a live experience as well, in particular, experimenting with the rollover effects in the left and top menus--text only; no images.

Hope you like it. Of course, the door is open for further modification since this is the first draft.

Here is the link to the forum featuring the theme:

This is the second time we're running this contest - and like last time the same prize is up for grabs - a free CD of your choice (within reason of course ;D) from HMV.com

The goal of the contest this time is not just to make a cool site, but to incorporate the logo that was chosen, and to minimize bandwidth (i.e. try not to use huge crazy graphics, or tables that are overly complex).

This contest will run until February 19th, or until we find something we really like.

Thechnically the transparent gifs for your smileys are proper i.e. can be used on any background color.

However I agree sometimes smileys look simply better on bright (or dark) bg colors.

Klumy: i totally agree.

Someone don't want to choose YaBBSE because of the look. And this page plus the forum NEEDS an update. And that before YaBBSE 2.0 is released. So I say we celebrate a winner and use his/her design at once.
