My Layout - For Sale?
« on: October 31, 2011, 10:10:39 AM »
This took me 8 hours to get right but I finally completed my new layout. I am thinking of selling a un-branded version to people interested for small fee.

A nice layout, but now people have seen it, it could easily be copied and even improved on.

There are plenty of people on here who will make and give ideas and are only too willing to help sort any problems that people may have. And they do it NOT for money but because it is a community. A community (and if you have read the past posts) that are more than willing to help out fellow members of the forum.

And the cost. ABSOLUTLY NOTHING - apart from friendship, a sense of camaraderie and a willingness to do something for nothing.

When i first joined this forum I knew F** ALL. I read EVERY past post and learned a hell of a lot. If i didn't understand something, I posted and i always got answers to my queries or sent into the right direction. Its getting to the point now that i have even answered a couple of questions.

Sorry but i think its the wrong pace to put a for sale sign up

If people want to attempt to create it themselves than I have no problem with that, like I say it took me a very long time to finish it and get it to display correctly in the right resolutions.

I didn't put up a for sale sign and I had this topic cleared with Corey Cooper also so I know I have not done that. I was merely touching on the possibility of selling it. My basis for this was that I was looking for a clean layout before I made this one (unfortunately I have never come across a professionally good looking one) and if someone else had one for sale I would have been willing to pay for it rather than waste many hours doing it.

If it offends you I would rather you not reply.

Adding onto what I have just said, if it took me 20 minutes to make like all of the layouts I have seen available, then I would put it up for free.

From a 5 year old to a 5 year old, not much to change.      Edit the pic, of Jason's up top is about 3 or 4 years old

Hi guys, 2 years ago I made this layout for christmas. it took me more than 40 hours to align everything, do the animation and do the audio editing.
extract the zip file into your templates folder. load the layout file and the sounds template. there is music that plays during the countdown (just prior to the start of the tournament) as well as custom sounds for 1 minute remaining and the blinds going up.
I also have a halloween layout i spent about 5-10 hours with audio editing and a star wars (i have a few elements to fix stlll) that use flash. i spent close to 30 hours doing this one. I'll make the others available off my web site soon.
My christmas layout can be downloaded at www.jodystacey.com/xmaslayout.zip

your point is what exactly? its inspired from that layout yes, well done. I gaurentee you could never come up with anything as professional looking and then format and align it proper to run at 1080p.

my layout is the most professional looking I have seen, bring me something that looks anywhere near as good and I begin to listen to you.

I'd have too agree with GreenTurtle on this.

No I am just sticking up for myself, perhaps read the comments above before passing judgement. The layout you have posted is good, much better than others, it is still basic however.

Timmer you would agree with him because you need someone on your side. Your layout is really bad, really.

Fact is my layout has been rated highly by everyone that has seen it in action, its not my fault that just because I mention charging for it people get annoyed like I have no right to charge for my work? That is the basis of your argument.
