hi pals,

just a couple of quick notes. read more for info.


First up, shirt designs. Just as a heads up, very fine lines in the shirt designs should be avoided as they generally don't last through the washer very often. Then again, it would surprise me if any of you actually do laundry often enough to make it an issue. At any rate, keep the designs coming. You still have ample time to try out new designs.

Next on the list: the new site design. I got the chance to go in and get a first look of the new design last week and it looks terrific! I got some comps a few days ago and have provided feedback. In the past when we've had designers do up a design, they basically just hand it off to me and then I spend the next month ruining it to make it easier to work around. This time, the talent is sticking around to make sure the final product actually looks good. I'm pretty excited about it, and I think those of you who don't hate it will be too. I'm not sure if I'll be posting comps before I actually reskin the dev site, but I'll keep you updated.

I have been thinking we should filter the contest content box so it doesn't show sites you've voted on, or maybe randomize it so that more people get a chance to be seen. What do you guys think?

P.S. zombie-fyrestorm has reopened the "ytmnd ventrilo server" at vent.ytmndongs.com port: 4660. don't bother visiting, it's terrible.

I think filtering the sites you've already voted on would be better - logged-in users won't see most of the stuff they've already seen, and casual visitors will still have them arranged by ranking.

Hey, max! I think it'd be great if you could make it so that the contest box shows entries that you haven't voted on yet. Then, when you've voted on all of them, it'd be cool if it could switch to either random or the top 10.
