Once again, thank you to everyone who entered our competition and filled out the survey. We have randomly selected a winner and the proud recipient of a new CSSEdit 2.6 copy is Domantas Jankauskas. Congratulations!
If you are interested in the outcome of the survey, please feel free to read on. We’ll be discussing some of your responses and how Design Shack has changed as a result.
There was a huge consensus that a small number of quality designs are preferred over quantity. With this in mind, we plan to continue showcasing only a select few CSS designs each day (our entry requirements may become even tighter!) Many of you expressed the fact that you like how designs are organised by colour and layout, and we have started to integrate that information underneath each design on the homepage and gallery as well.
As you can see, there is more of a split for this question. As a result, we are changing from offering one gallery update per day, to two – both one in the morning and one in the afternoon / evening (obviously varying depending upon where you live!).
Here are a few comments which we particularly enjoyed from the survey:
We have a couple more questions which we’d love to ask you, relating to the possibility of a combined links post and the idea of integrating both our RSS feeds into one. But those are for another day!May 8th, 2008 Posted in Competitions
Update: The survey is now over, thank you to all those who participated – we will be contacting the winner shortly
We have four questions to ask you – it will take somewhere between 30 seconds and a minute to answer them and you stand a chance of winning a copy of CSSEdit.
CSSEdit is a highly acclaimed piece of software, allowing you to design beautiful websites with greater ease. Our introduction to CSSEdit highlighted some of the application’s features, along with how to get started using it.
