    Cool Why not host a "BestPage" Contest?

    Why not host a "BestPage" Contest? like the winner could receive an award by "best site award from codingforums.com"
    ? Like one of us could make the award (the owner of this site, or one of the admins) and stuff? Make a Contests Thread and have a little fun!

    That'd be cool. I'd miss out on homework to do something like that .


    Could base the judging on use of code and new ideas as well as design so that way you can get people pushing the limits of code as well as pixels.

    eh. i see too much potential for large scale not-goodness with that kind of contest. people contending that their site has better graphics, so and so's site has better navigation, etc. in order to make it work, you'd have to have a bunch of categories, which then becomes a pain to keep track of, and you'd have to hold this only on an annual basis, or even less frequently.

    and shouldn't this really be in the thread dedicated to contest ideas?

    Hmm... Seems to be a little trouble but I think that the people of this forum would adhere to the "judgment is final" rule that would apply.

    It would be pretty spiffy too.

    Internet Explorer

    Would there be rules on cross-browser programming?

    Could we seperate into browser specific awards, as well as a cross-browser award, please? I code for IE only...

    IE6's been out a long, long time.

    I'm hoping if I send 200 error reports a day they'll make available a critical update that repairs the uninstallable critical update I downloaded last week

    Yes it has, and I haven't heard any rumors about any newer versions in the pipe. It makes me wonder if MS has decided it won the browser war and doesn't need to enhance the browser any more.

    There have been rumors for a long time. When Opera released version 7 and actually went from the standard rendering of version 6 to IE-centric buggery in some cases (floats, anyone?) I started to get scared. I mean, they are all in bed with each other and what would make Opera want to be the first browser to go from Standards to Non-Standards? Maybe they are convinced there won't be an IE7, in which case it would be sound business-wise to adopt IE's model.

    I know it's just rumors but IE7 sure takes a long time and it isn't like MS doesn't have the resources to produce it. These links are all I found now.

    I'm talking about that Opera 6 displayed floats according to the spec.
    http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/visuren.html#floats

    Opera 7 doesn't. If you have two adjacent boxes, float one and give the other a width Opera 7 does what IE does.
    http://www.digital-web.com/features/..._2003-02.shtml

    It doesn't recalculate the width, but it does push the whole static box away from the float instead of just pushing the content away and let the static box stretch under the float, letting its content flow around it, as it is supposed to work and did in O6.

    Sure, they fixed some bugs like position: fixed. But, they also changed what was perfectly fine to be in line with how IE displays things.
