Well per high demand here it is folks our second DC SKIN COMPO! The last one we had in 2007 was a huge success and we got some great skins out of it!

Here are the rules: You have to know how to handle .css files and a way to test your skin out. We do allow people working in teams for this. There has to be a theme that flows together. Like a dark theme, or pirates theme or whatever, but it has to flow together. The deadline will be February 10th, 1 month from today. You can DC-Mail me with the link to your theme, and i'll forward them over to all the other admins.

In the end the top 3 of best themes will get a spot on the site for everyone to choose from!. Also the winners will receive each 700 dc points. Good luck folks, should be interesting to see what you guys will come up with.

Click here to download the template!

So when are we going to make DC points worth anything? I remember a general poll about DC points a while back...

I am so going to enter this!

EDIT: Link doesn't work.

How many themes can I make? Maybe two or three? If someone submits multiple only one is eligible for a place, so just ignore the vote counts of the losing skins by the same person?

This will be sweet! Adam's skin is getting boring, but all the rest are poo.

Don't start slingin' it, Codemonkey. >_< lol JK.
Posted by Rikus 10th January, 2009

Jon you can submit as many skins as you want, if you submit 2 skins and both of those are worthy then so be it So let the ideas flow in your mind
Posted by Rikus 10th January, 2009

And remember you can work together on this if someone is good at the graphics and the other with css go for it
Posted by W3R3W00F 10th January, 2009

I'd submit some if I knew how.

Posted by W3R3W00F 10th January, 2009

Anyone know how to make these things?
Posted by Jon Lambert 10th January, 2009

First you have to wait until the link to the template is posted, then edit it with some CSS skills.

I'm still a little confused...

I'm a graphic designer, but I'm not a webmaster so I don't really understand css :/
Posted by W3R3W00F 10th January, 2009

Same here. I'm still trying to figure out how to do it.
Posted by -J- 10th January, 2009

I have no idea how to do it either ;S
But I have a few good ideas
Posted by Silveraura 10th January, 2009

I don't even care about the DC points, I just want to make a skin that will show up on this site for other people to use. I want my work out there and with my name on it.
Posted by OMC 10th January, 2009

Oh-ho-ho, I have an ingenius idea. > Ye'll all get head starts on me, though... because I won't be able to start for a while... ;__;
Posted by W3R3W00F 10th January, 2009

I don't think I'll enter. I have no clue how to do this css crap.

I did a really good DC Skin ages ago, which took me four hours to do, sent it twice and Rikus refused to acknowledge it...

Therefore, f off.

Eck I figured I'd just have to create new images. I have no idea what a css file is.
Posted by Rikus 11th January, 2009

A css file is really in its simplest form a text file that tells the site were the images go. Its really not that hard to figure out.

Use that page for help.

I want to buy tal's armour with my DC points.
Posted by RedEnchilada 11th January, 2009

I suppose I could open up that freeware 3D modelling program I have and make a skin with it.
Posted by Klikmaster 11th January, 2009

A lot of the skin can be modified with simply changing the images, the css file will be most useful for changing background colours and fonts.

This is an excellent resource for those that are css beginners:
Posted by Rikus 11th January, 2009

Alright it is up, club was nice enough to put some comments on the css file, get set..ready.. go!
Posted by W3R3W00F 11th January, 2009
