    So? That is a good thing. Every man and his dog uses Wordpress, it's nice to see something different.

    Why would SP need a Wordpress blog? The current one's quite good.

    Sitepoint Conference anyone? All expenses paid

    Also, agree with Dan. Hope the pop-ups finally disappear.

    SitePoint contests need an overall. The contests are a great marketing tool for 'SitePoint', but the administration and rules of these contests leaves much to be desired.

    It's twofold... the contest holders need support and the designers need assurance that theft is kept at the barest minimum, that they are paid for their work.

    I'ld really like to see SitePoint lead the way in contests, to shake up the format, to present new rules, to get with it and give us a true 'contest' format.

    As it stands now, the constests on SitePoint are nothing less then a bucket catch-all for creativity thief.

    Flame on.

    That would cure the symptoms. Not the disease. Pop-ups were eradicated in the rest of the world a long time ago.

    Do you really want to know what we're up to? Okay, but don't tell anyone. You'll see 3 major projects launched in early 2008 (or perhaps sooner):

    1. Programming Reference Site

    We're busy working on a reference section for sitepoint.com that will rival anything else you've seen. We currently have some of the best minds in the business cooking up reference material for CSS, JavaScript and HTML.

    2. New Improved Marketplace

    The marketplace is also undergoing massive changes under the hood. We're tightening up the rules and developing a superior system for website and domain name sales. In addition to auctions we also plan to offer ongoing classified ads for those who simply want to advertise their wares on sitepoint.com

    3. New Improved Design Contests

    As for the Design Contests, well, we have some exciting changes being launched soon there also. In addition to cleaning it up from a usability standpoint and enhancing our systems to protect designers, we plan to make a bold strategic move...

    In early 2008, Design Contests will become its own living and breathing beast, operating under a separate brand and website from SitePoint. Yep, that's right, we have so much faith in this baby we're setting it free.

    Of course we're always making incremental changes and improvements across sitepoint.com, but they're some the main projects the SitePoint team are working on right now.

    Enjoy!

    Well unfortunately a small, but none the less significant commet is heading towards earth now. In February or March next year it'll hit the SP servers, and dislodged commet-chunks will take out the Amazon elastic compute cloud servers hosting the Ruby book. They'll be other damage to non-SP interests, but alas, Sitepoint is likely to suffer the lions share of space rock.

    Despite having a thoroughly engineered site and professional business practices no post-2001 backups will exist and sitepoint will go offline. The next result of this will be an online power-vacuum which will be filled by proponents of the anti-standards. User-friendly but dangerous sites will spring up as proponents of layout tables, splash pages, combined business and presentation logic and animated backgrounds.

    Microsoft will use the event as evidence that servers hosting PHP based sites are far more likely to be struck by commets than those hosting ASP.NET apps. Coldfusion developers will claim that SP could be rebuilt from scratch in 3 weeks if only we'd let them.
    The threat perceived by millions of other web masters will massively reduce PHP adoption, as well as that of orange and blue colour schemes. These colours may even cease to be complementary with alternative colour wheels, positioning orange and blue as analogous, will gain influence.

    Years later the trickle down effect of the anti-standistas will skyrocket the rate of accessibility lawsuits. The entire interweb will lose much of its commercial appeal, the economic effects of which will be massive. As many modern economies move into a "knowledge age" the massive lack of confidence in the internet will usher in a period of tremendous economic and political instability for many first world nations. Inflation will reach WWII German, or modern day Zimbabwean standards.

    The now wealthy blind community (as a result of the accessibility lawsuits) will grow powerful, especially in the United States, and will (somewhat benevolently) control small areas as local warlords. With this power the world (offline especially) will gradually become far, far more accessible for the visually impaired. Roads will feature brail-bumps to transfer vibration through the vehicle allowing those previously unable to drive to do so.

    As the world becomes the perfect blind habitat evolution will, over the course of hundreds of generations, see humans becoming less and less visual in their MO. The already increasing rates of Myopia will accelerate, and by the year 3800-4000 the first eye-less babies will be born. By 4300 only one in every two hundred births will be to a baby bearing eye balls.

    It's a dim future, but the tea leaves don't lie.

    In the shorter term (pre February 2008) the main SP logo at the top of the page will be corrected so that half the whitespace isn't a clickable link to the home page.

    can we please stop with all the "MacLovin'" threads (the mac vs pc threads of not so long ago),

    they only serve to lead to heated debates that result in nothing but bruised egos and badwill between members and alot of trolling

    Huh??? I see your name all over Mac vs PC threads, and you want to see them banned? Do you want to ban threads comparing browsers, too? Shall SitePointers regard Zune as an iPod clone?

    They do indeed lead to heated debates, but they're very educational, in a number of respects. No one's forcing people suffering from bruised egos and bad will to participate.

    Frankly, I'm looking forward to a Vista versus Leopard thread...though it probably isn't necessary. I think 2008 will be a very good year for Apple - but so was 2007.

    Let's face it, keeping up with an industry as fast changing as IT/web design is a challenge that no respectable tech forum would shirk, and SitePoint deserves kudos for helping visitors separate the wheat from the chaff. SitePoint played a major role in steering me towards open source years ago, and it also influenced my decision to get a Mac. No bruised ego here.

    In other news, the idea of creating a separate website for contests is intriguing. I wonder what the domain name will be?

    I'd rather read the newsletters in blog format too and subscribe to them via RSS. Sometimes, because they're HTML emails, they look a bit borked.

    Ooh, and that Programming Reference sounds brilliant. Will it be a wiki?

    It is always up to the members themselves what the subject matter will be.

    Yes, that is true. I was thinking as well, it might be nice to have a section where people can discuss issues like this, but there is a real negative to it. Now, we all just get along more or less fine, but mix religion and politics into it, there will be carry over into the other discussions, it can destroy this environment that exists now.

    Just look at the discussions about Mac verses Microsoft, that should be an indicator how things would go, except it would be much worse.

    People respect the rules and don't discuss it here, so I'm confident they would respect the rules and keep it civilised in a section dedicated to these sensitive topics of discussion. If it doesn't work, then it gets trashed. I would not oppose the creation of it.
