88 x 31 eh? It's not very big, but reasonable. I will enter your contest! Should the file be in any particular format?

05-31-2001, 02:10 AM

I have several questions.

1. When do they have to be submitted by?

2. How close to 88x31 do they have to be?

3. This isn't about the contest but why is my post count going down?

Thanks in advance. :)

06-02-2001, 05:18 AM
well... standard web buttons for linking are always 88x31 pixels. you couldnt put much on a button with a size smaller than that.

After getting my arm twisted by Zero and the rest of my co-workers at JK2.net (j/k :D)... I've made this button:


I'll make more to come.
And just as a note, I'll try to get a Button contest page up soon so everybody can compare and see the competition ;)

06-16-2001, 10:50 PM

Gonk? Fancy yourself as a bit of a web designer hey?


06-17-2001, 09:38 AM

background design, as in backgrounds for your desktop :)

website design, well, u tell me :)

06-17-2001, 09:57 AM
I think having a little compition would go down well..


06-17-2001, 11:16 AM
If it's about websites, count me in! ;)

06-17-2001, 02:42 PM
Website design is MY domain! :D
Dont expect any easy competition from me. :D

06-17-2001, 03:57 PM
Any web page designers work for any companies at the moment??

06-17-2001, 05:12 PM
I'm more of a free lance designer. I have designed lots of site. But none of them was for $

You could say it is sort of a pass time :rolleyes: (your probebly thinking: FREAK!). The thruth is, I was thinking of going into web design. But I changed my mind... after learning lots of it. I am either going into programming or networking. (I am one the few lucky students to fallow a College Cisco Systems course in High School... for free! :D

06-17-2001, 06:45 PM
They have the same type of course in the high school I'm about to enter. What's it like? I'm thinking of taking it.

06-17-2001, 07:14 PM
Really? Where do you live?

I suggest you take it if you love computers a lot and if you are ready to be dedicated to hours of studying. In total there are 4 semesters. It's basicly how to create, administer, and etc a network. (not a cheesy 2 to 5 PC. I'm talking about an enterprise!)

The first semester might seem easy. But the last quater, if you start slacking off... you'll regreat it. In my calss about 5 sutdents allready droped out.

06-17-2001, 07:43 PM
Do u budding webdesigners wanna help me out?

go to theed hangar... will be MUCH


06-17-2001, 10:47 PM
I make websites...www.thejedimafia.com

06-18-2001, 07:52 AM
nice site jabba

Yeah I'm game whenever there's a designing contest, and you all should too!
you never know what happens

Like one year ago, clanpages.com had a logo contest.
I never planned on participating cuz I always thought that others would create a thousand times better graphics.
But I tried some logos and finally sent my best in...and whadda ya know? It frigging won, the little bastard :)

And because they liked it so much, they also wanted a web-design to go with it... for $$$!
Yeah and the fun didn't stop there, cuz after I made a complete re-design for clanpages.com the asked me to redesign gamehappy.com aswell :D
now that that's done I'll have to start at pathfinderz.com soon
Those 3 sites are all in the same company, so that was my biggest luck lol.

so what's the moral of this story?
even if you think you suck at designing, just play along! There's no telling what'll happen...

Also in 2 years I'll be going to (how do you say this in english..?) a designing academy(?) In which they teach you 3d animation,2d animation, video animation, web-design, flash etc...Hoping to work making 3dstuff for movies and games later on.
So I'm really really really really looking forward to that school man :D


06-18-2001, 09:47 PM
I live in New Jersey. A little town called Wayne. Do you take the two year version of the course?

06-19-2001, 01:34 AM
Two school years, yes. To Cisco Network it is a 4 semester course. But since in school we only have 2 semester a year it does not exactly fallow the same time frame. In one semester we are allready half way into the 2nd semester. We then pick up where we left off in September.

This course has changed the way I think of computers. It also tought me that there are a lot of people who think they know everything, but they don't. http://www.jediknightii.net/forum/icons/icon10.gif I remember reading a pointless debate about IPX and IP on an other forum. Back then I was clueless, now I just laugh at them. http://www.jediknightii.net/forum/icons/icon10.gif

Website design contest; cool! Sadly, I am graphically challenged. :( I love to webmaster, but I'm bad at all the lovely artwork which defines a site... I'd love to help with design and running aspect of it! SSI, Navigation, Design tips... :)

07-12-2001, 01:20 AM

07-12-2001, 01:31 AM
We’ve been so busy with designing other sites that I must admit we completely forgot about the contest. We will be announcing the winner either tomorrow or Friday.

Ice Man
07-12-2001, 07:02 PM
Can the other buttons still be available so that we can use whatever we want to link to JKII.net?

07-12-2001, 07:34 PM
I don't see why not.

07-13-2001, 01:13 AM
