I am pretty strong on CSS and think I could help here - BUT I am totally submerged in work for the next week at least. I will try to whip up something asap in between other work.

On making it liquid? I think that's not a good idea - fixed and centred is a better option IMHO. It is almost impossible to get a design that looks good - not functional, but good - at all widths. Plus just because people have big screens, it doesn't mean they use big windows.

I like the design put up here, but wonder if something taking the same elements but more (and I REALLY hate this term but however) Web 2.0 looking might not be better?

Maybe we can join forces. I'm keen to learn some more CSS and I might just do that if we start fidling with my design. A fixed centered design will work alot better than a floating version, so I'm up for that.

What do you mean by Web 2.0? Does it mean specific changes in design or what...I'm green the term :cry:
Hmmm.....I'd like a cup of coffe! Thanks!

My understanding of web 2.0 is more about function than form...what do you mean by "web 2.0 looking"?

Cool colors and a snazzy look. Blues, pinks, etc. Or something that looks more professionally designed.

http://www.webdesignfromscratch.com/web ... -guide.cfm

That guide is a bit outdated but provides a good outline (some people would argue that technologies like CSS, XHTML, and RSS, and ideas like tag-clouds and social networking are all vital to the web 2.0 idea).

I would argue that CSS and xhtml are vital to any web design...

But that's an aside, and getting things away from their goal...

It kind of amuses me how each time people get together on a software project everybody ends up discussing what the logo should look like :lol:

But it's an important discussion, and we already have lots of suggestions. I will return to this thread in a while, I guess. We probably should arrange a vote when everybody has got their chance to submit suggestions.

I design sites in my free time, and eventually for a living. So I always want a logo and design to look good. Of course I'll probably make some eventually.

That is because anyone without prior knowledge can have an opinion about color, size and shape. If just the same where true regarding coding we wouldn't be in this spot... ;-)
Yes, I am still around...

Keep in mind that this forum is specifically oriented to the look and feel of the site, and has nothing to do with the software...
Remember, a lot of people have said they want to chip in, but have no coding skills. This is where they can do that. And with so many facets of this project to tackle, we shouldn't diminish its importance.

Besides, if things look "cool" and "hip", like me, lots of people will come, and with them, interested coders...
