construction

I’m trying to justify entering the competition on the grounds that the masses should get at least one hook-complete, localisation-ready (so it doesn’t have any .po or .mo files, what do you want? blood? at least it’s marked up ready for someone else to extract the strings), code-validating, usable and halfway nice-looking theme out of it. I don’t have any use for any of the prizes (just as well, as they will no doubt go to friends of the judges) and the site itself has been radio-silent for weeks, which is vaguely worrying.

But no doubt our local theme-guru will be submitting a flawless design of her own which will render all other efforts puny and redundant. I wouldn’t, after all, go around ripping into other people’s crappy bug-ridden themes if I wasn’t prepared to put my money where my mouth was and give the community something better. Carping from the sidelines is easy (not to mention fun) but it’s much more constructive to put together an example of good practice which people can actually use. I’m really looking forward to seeing hers.
