Great job to everyone on the last round. Even if you were eliminated, I thought that was the best round in terms of overall quality. However if you were eliminated, don't feel too bad. This round is going to be HARD. :evilmod:

You four will all be making website homepages. This is definately the hardest challenge yet and it is going to take some time. Here are some examples of what you are making:

Here are all the specs:

Must be exactly 850 pixels wide
Must be any amount over 850 pixels tall
Nothing has to be coded, so don't worry about that. What I mean by that is that none of the links and stuff actually have to work
Must be a final design. No writing "text goes here" where you want to have text
Animation is allowed
Can't be a re-design of a well known website, for example making a new homepage for finheaven. It has to be something that you made up and not a website already in existance. Obviously if you choose a URL that happens to be taken but isn't well-known, that is ok. (I tryed to explain that the best I could but if you have a question, ask)
Can't be football or religion related
Must have buttons leading to atleast the following two pages: "Home" and "About Us." But because you don't have to code it, you don't have to actually link to a page.
Due on Thursday, March 23 at 10:00 P.M. ESTI think that covers all of it. I realize it may be a little confusing so ask questions if you don't understand it! Obviously you have four more days than usual to complete this task. I hope that all of you are up to it. I think this is the best group of contestants ever.

:chuckle: I had a strange feeling this week would have something to do with websites

Just one question:

• It can't be football related but can it relate to other sports?

If it wasn't clear, you do need to come up with a url for your webpage and have it somewhere on the page. Even if it just really tiny at the bottom. Or you can just have the name. Like instead of putting www.finheaven.com (http://www.finheaven.com) you could just put finheaven.

Everyone but you.

I'm STARTING mine after work today...I had no time this weekend to do anything on it.

My concept has changed about 10 times. I was having an issue basically designing a fake site. It's a lot easier when you have a domain name and a topic.

I am going with a a simple concept that might not win me any votes for the topic but might win me votes if I do good design....

The idea that I was going to run with is dead as a doornail.

I'm going to go with the initial idea I had a week ago...I just have to clarify a few things with DM....since she is a MOD and not facing me this week.

Hate to bud into this love fest....:tongue:

I am done BUT, my file is like 200+ K's when I optomioze it to about 55% in JPEG format.

What size is everyone else's and what is my maximum size?

I don't want to shrink file size and get the shaft because my image quality is not what it could be...

PM me and let me know please and thank you. :D
