    Get those creative juices flowing and send in your contributions. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
    I highly encourage you all to blog about this (use the link above) to help get the word out. Thanks!

    How about 2 sections: 1 for wp-layout.css, and another for wp-admin.css?

    Cena,
    Maybe the ADMIN and COMMENTS can be separate contests?

    Comments are part of the main template... admin can be another competition.

    This is very cool, very much like my "WP Zen Garden" idea. ;)

    the style switcher isn't working in firebird, I keep clicking on the skin links and it just takes me back to the golf one :(
    I think it would be nice if the community got to vote for the winner, but on the other hand I guess the people who put up the money want to decide where it goes, which is fair enough.

    Anon, I have no idea what the problem might be, but wanted to let you and the list know that I'm running Firebird 0.7 under Win98SE and the style switcher works fine.

    I denied cookies and all the CSS switched broke. Allowing cookies allowed the switches. Would that be why you keep getting the golf one?

    Lots of great styles up there now - remember, all entries must be received by midnight (PST) on Friday!

    I think most style switchers require cookies in order to work (otherwise it won't remember which style you're using).

    Alex -FYI: I've got a CSS I'd like to submit, it needs to be cleaned up and one little thing fixed and it will be good to go.

    Hiya, three days ago I started setting up my first blog, yesterday found WP - and it's great! Today went through the stylesheet in a lot more detail with the help of NM's tutorial - it helps big-time, thanks.
    Since I take it the stylesheet competition is aimed at havig a collection of diverse examples of potential styles - the following style brought me to WP, I think it is superb.

    Have the same issue with Firebird - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Cookies are switched on. So, I switched to Opera 7, but when I go to fullscreen, the stylesheet breaks. Switch back to normal, and it comes back. Weird.
    Some nice styles there. A couple are excellent.

    Is this resource of WP styles going to included somewhere on this site? As a static resource page perhaps?
    This is not to take away focus from Alex King's site and the wonderful job that he has done with this competition, but I think that they deserve their own page here at WordPress.

    May we use that css code? Or can you tell me who made 'Human Condition'? I'd really like to ask the author wether i may use his/her template :)
