WordPress 2.0 Theme Design Competition

A WordPress plugin called "Counterize" brought me to the link of the above mentioned competition. Last week as I was checking the list of my Counterize Referer I saw a link that catched my attention. I clicked on it out of curiousity and voila…there I found out that there’s a competition for WordPress 2.0 theme design running. I thought of joining but I became hesitant as I saw the long list of participants. Hubby and AnP encouraged me and so I made up my mind and spent one and a half week creating/designing three (3) WP Themes for submission.  It may sound so ambitious of me to participate…but what the heck! In german we say it "dabei sein ist alles" *to take part is all that matters. I would like to encourage all other hobby designers like me to join the fun. Please go here KCYAP for more details.

All three themes will be available for dowload after 28th February 2006. By the way, be my judge. I’d like to hear your opinon about my work…and oh please be gentle with your comments :). Yours truly is not a professional designer…I’m just doing this for fun.

  • BRAVO!

    You did a great job. I’m sorry to say this but you just made me frigging jealous. All three are definetely stunning!

    You will win!

  • Hi Diane, thank you :cheerful:, the green one is also my favorite among the 3. Yung orange naman, I had a hard time searching for a suitable graphic that would match to the color combination of the whole theme…til I found the Butler. The image is somewhat funny but has a touch of class and the color scheme is perfect…and so is Clueless theme born.

  • Hello Charles,

    So pareho pala tayong tatlo ni Diane ;-). Kumusta na? Haven’t been bloghopping for almost two weeks now dahil dito sa competition na ito.

  • Charles,

    all your comments are posted. well, this site is sometimes acting weird after i updated to the latest version. haven’t had the time to check the backend kasi ang dami kong trabaho sa ngayon. kong pwede lang hindi na ako matutulog so i can accomplish all things that has to be done. my eyebags charles looks awful :crying:. my earnings is not even enough to pay for a bottle of AnnaYake eye care. :thinking:

  • i like all three. :heartbeat:

    Im waiting the day wordpress would inser that to the ‘presentation’ section of their free blogs. The, i would be able to use all 3 themes. hehehe.


  • Minimalist ako (kuno) so i take the first one with the old man nga nag verbeugen, bagay sa buktot kong uyab LOL!!! So profesional looking.

    Beng, I am coming to our party ha. reserve a suite for me and m y driver MUAHHSSS

  • Well she’s a designer and you’re not but it turned out you’re already a pro. C’mon let’s keep our fingers crossed. Do we need to vote? Where and How?

    On commenting: In my humble opinion, de-activiate “waiting for verification”. This thread comments is safe because sometimes it makes me think kung na accept ba yung comment o hindi.

    BTW, can you design three-column layout and black themes?

  • btw,benggay nde kami maka join, mag debut man sad ning akong long nose ana, we’ll be off to stuttgart.Anyways, si jinggay na lang ang kakain sa aking parti,hehe

    call lang unya ko kung maka time next week! Ingat inday!

  • Flattered na ako niyan :-), okay, since I asked you to judge my work…your opinion is accepted :blush: (hiya). Salamat pala for reminding me about the comment option…I forgot to turn it off. And regarding to your question about a 3 column theme in black…yes I can. Gusto mo?

  • Ikaw Jinggay wala djud kay buot :beee: bantay ka kay isumbong teka ni dodng C. nimo…pero inig mahubog nako 😀 salamat bitaw kaayo :heartbeat:

    Owowow…makaari mo :hyper: yupppeee!
    Moanhi pod sila ni Melissa ug iyang sister. Dayon ang akoa pong mga friends from Miltenberg…kadto bang akong giingon nimong taga Cebu pod. Hala kamo gyuy ma-inatubangay ug tagay. Dili to moatras day kong bahin na ug tuma. Nabalaka pod kunuhay to pareha nimo bahin sa diabetic…pero mo tagay man to gihapon. Guwafa sad to pareho nato :yes: :innocent: 🙄

  • Sayanga Che oi, unsa man joint celebration kaha mi? :bday:

    kong dili, di si jingga nalang gyuy akong pakan-on ug maayo…bahala na ang uban :cutie:

  • Ate, I’m considering of moving to a new webhosting service, say sign-up at your own service plan but want to keep my own domain name. How do I do that?

  • That is very easy. I only have to send you a copy of “Connectivity Coordination”, then you sign it and send a copy via fax to your current provider and to me and that’s it. All the rest will be taken care by us. It will take 2 to 5 days…depending on how fast your provider work.

  • Please do. Can you send the copy thru my email? I will make a necessary informations about payment methods, fees & other essentials. I will be giving advance notice to my current provider. My bandwidth has exceeded its qouta and they charged me pro-rata. I went blah. Thanks Ate.

  • shit i have to look for ticket diay
    mag tupad mi ni kitty na lang didto sa storage room

    i love the green its crispy clean
    the orange is cool too with that man

    the 2nd one will go well with a daring straight forward blog…..

    looks like I will have a new skin sa summer hahaha the green will be the candidate…

    hoy i lab that black sa side bar aha sus day
    daghan na ta mapili diri da…

    swiss unta imo pang eye bag abot lang ug 100€ la prairie but i tested the eye cream effective kaayo day beng mawala gyud imo MAOT NGA EYE BAG
    hmmm mao lang ngali na ato ma regalo sa imo debut ug sa imo serbisyo sa ako no

  • Oh you have been busy!! Anyways, ate just take some time off from the pc or work and close your eyes for even 15 minutes or so. And if you have frozen cucumbers, that will be nice to place on top of your eyes! I usually do that from time to time.

  • Sha walay problema sa tulugan kay magtindog man ta kong mga tulog para paigo tang tanan 😉

    Bahin anang la prairie wala pa ko kasuway anan day. effective djud? oy paningkamuti baya day nga makaari ka ha. muahhh

  • yup, there is only one category. medyo unfair di ba? 4 profi designers na ang nakalista. i said profis dahil they are really designers. their fees for a custom theme is more than $200.

    anyways, i really don’t care…ang sampung juries na ang bahalang mag judge. i really hope you can come sha…AnP is looking forward to see you too.

  • Yes Charles I had been so busy the whole time due to this competition and my hosting business. Kaya pasensiya ka na muna ha at medyo limited ang time ko ngayon.

    Re cucumbers, I tried that once…that was last year. Wellness nga kuno but the after effect was horrible :crazy: allergic pala ako dito. Kamillen Tee or what is it again? Camomille? O siya tee bag nito…it also help ease eyebags a bit :wow:
