Hey everybody,
I've learned a lot from the CSS community on-line, and now I'm visiting forums letting people now about a tool I created to give something back.

I used to use my own software to catalog my favourite CSS snippets I found across blogs and forums. Recently, I decided I'd upgrade it and open it up to the public as a web application. The site is called CSSPop.com (http://csspop.com) and the premise is simple: find handy CSS snippets or submit your own.

I've designed it in a way that everyone can benefit: seekers can find beautiful CSS to use in their work and submitters can promote themselves and their skills.

My hope is that this will be a valuable extension for the CSS community, allowing more people to learn from example, showcase their work, and promote/advertise their skills.

Oh and to the moderators, if this post violates any forum rules please let me know -- or do as you wish with it :P.

Thanks All.

I'm not sure if this kind of a thing already exists but I have to say, I like the idea! I can definitely see this being useful for everyone. Really good website so far, could use a few changes but I'm impressed. I also like the name btw.

Nice website bro, I really like the minimalistic styling of the site!

Out of interest, what font-family and other attributes do you have to get the CSSPOP header? I love that writing style.

Nice work, can see it being very useful!

I'm not sure what you could do to improve it but the gallery it just feels like there's 3000 buttons. Because the labels for up votes, designer, etc all look like buttons. Also I don't know how to fix this either but with the scroll boxes for larger css like the banner. I don't know, it just looks weird. But I really do like the overall design and it functions perfectly so far. Out of curiosity, did you code this from scratch?

Edit: It also lets you vote I think once a day.. And I think it you have multiple accounts it will also let u vote for each one.
