    For you maybe. Personally rarely does a hat fit my head, its too big. When I played Football in HS they actually had to order me a helmet because they didn't have enough big ones.

    Sounds like me Chris.... My slightly larger-than-average head has caused me a bit of trouble occasionally... And putting a cap on just accentuates it

    I gotta admit, that midget line had me literally laughing out loud - but I'm amazed it made it up there.

    This from the same people who, here at the forums, banned the word c-r-a-p. C'mon!

    Hey,

    If SP released a pair of jeans (ghetto type baggy jeans) and put a SP arrow on the pockets, I would wear them.

    I did visit, looks good if a little bit on the lean side. I thought it was extremely funny, I am getting bored with being too politically correct

    I visited that site, but well, it looks a bit weird... Probably because it's another IE only site

    For a good example of what SitePoint Design can do, check out: http://www.igodirect.com.au .

    I agree that SitePointDesign.com could be better done, but the site was a rush-job done in a matter of hours. It'll be improved when we have time (ha!) but at the moment all the guys are way to busy working on SitePoint.com and sites for our other clients.

    Just to enlighten you a little further about the motivation behind SitePoint and the reason for our existence...

    The SitePoint Network is a separate part of the company to SitePoint Design. Both sides of the business are profitable. And we have never received a dime of venture funding. We are a business, that's true! We must make a profit to stay in existence. We are not your typical dot com who receives $10 million in funding and proceeds to blow it all in 12 months. SitePoint is all about adding value to the community, making enough money to pay our staff and hopefully a little bit extra for a rainy day. And whilst we are not making bucket loads of money, (For instance, I am earning half of what I did in my previous job) the company has been profitable since day one.

    The reason we are alive and well is four fold.

    1. We have a talented bunch of people who are willing to accept much lower than industry standard wages to work for such a great company.

    2. We have awesome volunteers such as Wayne, Eric, and all the advisors, that help ease our work load, and allow our staff to concentrate on growing your network.

    3. Our development team is based in Australia. And there is one very small reason why this is so. It's called the exchange rate. We use the Web for all it's benefits.

    4. And finally we actually care about you guys. We invest most of our money implementing your suggestions and adding more and more value. We could easily sit back and watch the dollars roll in from the Bahamas, but instead we work 15 hour days building new sites, updating content, and thinking up new ways to help you guys build better Web sites.

    Without these four factors working to our favor, we would not have the vibrant community that we have today, and we
    would definitely not be able to afford to be around.

    So the person who made the comment about
    However much we think of SitePoint as "the community", it is just a company out to make cash after all
    remember that money will buy you technology and staff, but it will not buy you a vibrant community of the likes we have here. We could be doing many other things that are alot more financially rewarding than this, and only work 8 hours a day. The reason we do this is simple. We love what we do, we love the people we work with, and we love having very few limitations to what we do. So if that aint a community, what is? I'll leave you with that thought...

    Cheers, and a very Merry Christmas...

    It's finally time for a few days break!

    I'll have to agree with Russel G, I would wear a baggy pair of Urban Type jeans with a sitepoint logo on them.. I would buy them for (highquality I hope) 50 bucks : ).
