CSS Reboot

Published: 15 February 2006 | 11 comments

Benjamin Adams launched a brand new look to the CSS Reboot website today and I must say it’s got quite the look. I love it actually. But what is this “CSS Reboot” you ask?

The CSS Reboot is a community event for web professionals. May 1st, 2006 at 6:00 GMT Rebooters from all over the world will launch their web standards-based redesigns simultaneously, bringing traffic, interest and a little respect to their sites. There are no prizes or arbitrary winners, just great exposure and the knowledge that we all participated in something great.

Now I know God’s Porch hasn’t been out for very long but for a while now I have been thinking of making a few changes to the look of the site. My creativity has had it’s ups and downs and I have gotten ideas here and there but still don’t have anything concrete. Also time is a factor. As you may or may not know I’m a student and so obviously that takes priority at the moment, not to mention my part time job at school. So while I would like to give the reboot a go, I’m still undecided (at the moment) as to whether or not I will join.

There is still a bit of time yet before the Reboot so depending on how things we will see if GP makes it in.

Update: After speaking a bit with Robert, I decided to give it a go and enter. So look out for a redesign in May.

Reboot really changed their site a lot. From what it sounds like, it was built using Ruby on Rails. I like the new look.

I signed up yesterday after receiving an email about it. I think you should give it a try. You could do 10 minutes of work a day for the 90+ days left. You will see a load of traffic when you are completed. I view that as a way to start sharing more about Jesus when all the traffic is coming in. ;)

Thanks for the idea Robert. I have decided to sign up and use your suggestion and work on it a little each day whenever I get the chance.

Blessings on you dude and all the best with your redesign.

It’ll be interesting to see what you do with the site.

I just signed up today, so this will be my first Reboot experience.

Peace and God bless.

Blessings on you also dude.

I, for one, love the look of your site. It’s open, clean and fresh. You obviously know what you’re doing.

Yannick, when I saw your site for the first time, I was really stunned. The design is simple, but wonderful. I am looking forward to seeing your new design! ;-)

May God bless you!

Thank you Ben and Tobi.

LOL, now I feel as if I really have to raise the bar on the redesign. We will see how it turns out. I really hope I can improve on the current design.

May God Bless you both as well.

Yannick, Thanks for stopping by my site and I too really like your design, this CSS rebot thing sounds pretty cool.

Hey Wess,

Yes it sure does. Unfortunately I haven’t put in as much work on the redesign yet, so I am kind of cutting it close.

Thanks for stopping by also and I look forward to reading more of your ping homilies.

Peace and God Bless.
