    "I have to say that your blog's design is the best wordpress design I have ever seen"
    That said greatgoron about my template on Deviantart, thats cool for me because I worked a lot with that, its based on Kubrick by Michael Heilemann.
    Its old but I also think its pretty cool.
    CHECK IT OUT PLEASE
    Give me your opinions and advices.

    All good WordPress designs are either Kubrick or based on Kubrick. Discuss.
    I actually feel that your text is a little small and your sidebar is a little wide, but aside from that it's pretty classy.

    *takes the bait anyways and runs with it*
    Anon - I don't necessarily agree with that assesment. I've seen some realy good ones that weren't Kubrick derivatives, and I've seen some bad uses of the Kubrick.
    It goes both ways.

    Kubrick withouth changing anything its not cool, its too white, and the typography its not good. The best of kubrick its the structure and the way it separate header, footer, image folders, index, archives, and search: that is the grat work of binary bonsai's author.
    I have changed colors, header, background, and side bars a lot. I have added a new drop down menu and the way to show the end of posts [ gray and green bar ].
    I think its a great template to start, all times its difficult to write thi first code in css or stars to change index.php of default wordpress template, kubrick is agood beggining, but its good if yoy use it to change all you can, would be terrible if all blogs look the same.

    It's okay... I would have complimented you, except you came off more than egotistical. In fact, even pompus. I don't like that in designers that aren't the best in the industry (I know a few that are - and I have no problem with them saying it).
    Your site builds off a myriad of design cliche's and presents almost no real creativity. Neither the structure of the site, nor the look is original. The code has got some nasty stuff in there, style attributes and all.
    You've got the diagonal lines, the use of itsy-bitsy text, the cliche'd blue, the pixel-fonts, and to top it off the blued out subway scene in the header =/
    Honestly, I think the best part of your site is the screenshots of others sites you have.
    I am overly critical of people that think they are the best designer ever, so that is why this review is so harsh. Maybe next time you should try being humble.

    I don't know why, but I am inclined to agree with Brak - not as much about the technical details, which I don't care about, but regarding the attitude :)

    Brak I think Benkos didn't mean to come off the way he has. It's lost in translation. It's apparent that english isn't his first language but I see your point. Creativity people we need more creativity:)

    I don't think I'm the best designer, I'm not even a designer I'm 16 and "design" its only a 2 hours a day hobby.
    I agree with Brak the worst part was the attitude, but think about this:
    If the title had not been so pedantic had not obtained the critics nor the commentaries.
    I'm not a pro designer and I won't create a new design tendency, even popular, I like cliches like pixel fonts, gray text and tatoo style, about the top image, are pictures that I like and I change monthly. But you can't say that is copy because I did everything and I did not plagiarize the work of anybody, it is my creativity but "inspired" with all the cliches I like.
    PD: Sorry about my english and Altavista's.

    Brak's 2nd language is english too, don't forget! so that might be why he read your first post as so offensive.
    I think you should maybe have rounded corners, more like the original Kubrick look. It is more pleasing to the eye than all those hard edges which lets face it you could get just by using tables.

    Rounded corners are difficult man, I'ver read ALA articles and nothing, I like a lot Hilhorst designs [ http://www.ibeginwithanidea.com/ ] and stopdesign because of that he manages rounded corners very well.

    Mmmm... How did I end on this post? Hehehe (yep, I'm the same devious greatgoron).
    ¡Vaya si ha causado polémica el que me hayas citado! Debo decir que en mi opinión, el tuyo, sigue siendo uno de los mejores diseños que he visto. Aunque dándome una vuelta por el foro he visto muchas novedades. Aquí te dejo el link de mi WordPress para que me des tu opinión. Saludos!

    Wow! Dude...are you able to get your head to pass through a doorway? :)
    The design is okay. No better, no worse than anything else that reflects on its creator. Design is so subjective that anyone trying to find, or, in this case, declare, a "best WordPress design" will find themselves in a maelstrom of controversy.
    Not only that, you might be taking the ego-crown away from root. :-)

    Well, sorry if I sound too egocentric, that wasn't the idea.
    A lot of people asked me to share the design, if kubrick is OpenSource ¿am I in the obligation to distribute my work?

    You dont have to, and i can tell you dont want to.
    For one, you even take away michael heilemann credit name down the footer (although he did say its optional but very much appreciated).
    But hey its your site and you fully took advantage of open source spirit, although it would be nice and appropriate to put smth like this in the footer:
    Design: Michael Heilemann Modify: Yourname.
    That's just my 2 cent.

    I like it, nice colors. I especially like how you've done the right side column/menu. :)

    I would suggest using WP Blacklist to block all those spam comments. At least in my opinion, a blog without comments isn't a blog.
    To use WP Blacklist (I would give the address, but sorry, I don't have it anymore), you'll need to load it with a blacklist, preferably Jay Allen's. http://www.jayallen.org/comment_spam/blacklist.txt (I think that's it; I know the part up to blacklist.txt is correct).
