Layout request contest

CONTEST CLOSED!

I've been playing with the thought of doing requests again, but I kinda distrust myself, ergo, I won't be able to complete too many custom layouts. However, this idea came to my mind:
I'LL MAKE A CONTEST.
I'll choose 2, I say, TWO lucky people who can get custom layouts made by me. Want to be one of them? All you have to do is comment on this entry (all comments are screened) saying WHY I should choose you to be one of the two lucky people who can win. You can write anything you like; even something completely nonsense. I'll choose the two reasons I like the best.
Contest starts today (16 July 2010) and closes when I get back from my mini-holiday on Tuesday, 20 July 2010.
I'll announce the winners on Wednesday, who can then tell me their ideas of an ideal layout. :)

Good luck!

you're always watching someone who is watching someone else

Finally, an attempt at a wooden background layout! Yee-ha!

Layout
: I only came to watch you watch me leave {S2 Flexible Squares}
Features: custom contextual pop-up, mini icons, custom comments pages, fixed header, topbar
Account types: basic // (plus) // paid
Notes: I don't recommend this layout for plus users, but if very neccessary, I'd recommend the between entries setting (though, the ads float over the header, but at least they aren't messing anything up). Also, sorry about the crappy thumbnail.

I'm moving past a feelin'

A layout again after long long months! Sorry I've been missing - it's computer problems plus not much time.

Layout: The Suburbs {S2 Flexible Squares}
Features: custom contextual pop-up, mini icons, custom comments pages, fixed entries & sidebar
Account types: basic // plus // paid
Notes: I don't recommend this really for plus users, on the recent entries page the between entries setting works perfectly, it just gets really messed up on vertical.

Rules & instructions here as usual! ♥

BACKUP WEBSITE IS HERE.

HERE YOU GO

I am now done with this rather simple backup website for my layouts. Each layout is listed by its name and has links to the large image, the live preview and the codes. There is also some basic information in the form of a self-interview and some links to some other stuff! Hope you like!

the 'morrow will heal the night so morning comes

Here is the layout I promised. Take it as a thank-you layout for winterweathered  for the one year of photobucket pro!

Layout: Engraved in the Light {S2 Flexible Squares}
Features: custom contextual pop-up, mini icons, custom comments pages
Account types: basic // plus // paid
Notes: This layout is rather customizable! Plus users, set your ad placement to vertical and you shall have this layout ad-free. The lovely lovely background image was made by chamberten . It is also supposedly header image friendly, but I haven't tested it. And I am dedicating this layout to the memory of my favourite fashion designer, Alexander McQueen. (I know that sounds lame, but I had a great passion for his clothes and now he is not in this world anymore.)

[info]winterweathered GOT ME AN ACCOUNT OF PHOTOBUCKET PRO, SO ÜBERYAYZ EVERYBODY, HALF OF MY PROBLEM IS SOLVED!! TO CELEBRATE I'LL MAKE A NEW LAYOUT AND ANNOUNCE THAT I'M WORKING ON A SMALL WEBSITE TO SERVE AS A BACKUP OF THIS JOURNAL!
I think it's gonna look pretty good, I hope to have it realy sometime in the near future! Yay!

bandwidth exceeded.

BANG.
That was completely unexpected because my bandwidth has always been like, 0.2%. So... uh. Now along with my live previews, my image previews are screwed up as well. So... I guess, patience everybody? Most of my stuff is on tinypic anyway, except some tiny icons of some older layouts and my preview images. I really don't have the time now to go back and fix every single thing, this week I'm completely buried in schoolwork so I guess that sucks really. Just rely on the small thumbnails now, I guess my icons are linked from my another photobucket account. Apologies everyone.

i'm sleeping to develop my dreaming skills

So here is the layout I promised, titled after a song by School of Seven Bells, and - hold your breath - it comes in basically every color of the rainbow! This is the reason why I'm only linking the codes.

Layout: Wired for Light {S2 Flexible Squares}
Features: custom contextual pop-up, mini icons, custom comments pages
Account types: basic // (plus) // paid
Notes: This layout isn't really the best with ads. If you're a Plus user, I suggest the vertical setting because at least that doesn't really mess up the order of the elements on the page, however the ad sometimes floats over the navigation links. Also, the navstrip is disabled because of the fixed navigation links. The header is placed on the top of the sidebar - I suggest using shorter journal titles. You can add your own free text to the sidebar in Customize > Sidebar. Also, the live preview is kind of screwing it up, so please check the images. I'm only adding the live thing because some elements do things on hover.

difficulties ahead

I've got a layout in the making - I'm facing some problems now but I hope to have them resolved rather soon - it will be pretty so stay tuned! ♥
Now I expect you wonder why I'd make a post about that... well, no, i'm not making a post about that, actually.
The site where I host my live previews (and frankly, my website) is about to shut down their free services. Which means, I need to find new hosting service - this isn't as much of a problem as I thought it would be at first, I can easily get a subdomain of my dad - but this means I'll have to move all my live previews and codes, and edit all the links in all the layouts I've posted before, so, if in the near future you're experiencing problems with live previews, then that is because they're being moved to a new server! My apologies for any problems you might have to face when trying to view my layouts. In the meantime, I expect picture previews will be a bit more reliable. I hope thing will be sorted out quickly, anyway!
All the best ♥
