Re CSS Zen Garden Submission

Well, that’s news for me! Dave Shea from CSS Zen Garden wrote an e-mail for me today, to let me know that my design CSS Revolution! had not been included in the official designs, but been added to the Minimal section of the comprehensive list!

I suspect the main reasons being:
– too boring, not too much work put into it (which is true)
– barely validated and cross-browser issues (which is true)
and Not enough details (which, again, is true)

I’m glad he even got back to me. I posted this a long time ago, and in the meantime I’ve been updating my skills both on the HTML and the CSS side. So, I’ll probably make another one when I get the ongoing Fafo/NRC project finished. Stay tuned:)

  1. Interesting choice for your Zen Garden submission. I submited a design (called Propaganda as well and, like yours, it did not make the official list but I wasn’t expecting it to due to the use of some PNG files and some Internet Explorer issues.

    Good work and keep honing those CSS skills.

  2. Hey man… that is so much father than my submission would have gotten… I can’t position things worth crap in CSS, so anything I would like to make, I couldn’t… Good job to atleast get on their list, I like yours, it has a revolutionary feel to it. XD

  3. Thanks for the support!
    Actually it was my first CSS tryout, having a “stand-alone” webpage to skin. So I learned alot, and will prolly get back with more when I feel like it.

    Oh, and Chip! I saw several designs over the same theme, so I guess neither of us was very original after all.
    But I prefer yours:)

  4. HAHA… thanks for the preference.

    Don’t give up on the CSS. It’s not as hard as it may seem at first. Before you know it, you be converting your site to a full CSS layout with no tables.

    If you ever have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email and I’ll try to help if I can.
