[url=http://danny.brendoman.com]danny.brendoman.com[/url] - I borrowed heavily from [url=http://www.aqua-soft.org]Aqua-soft.org[/url] for this design. I added a random photo block, recent comments, a 'currently reading' sideblog and I wrapped the style around my menalto photo gallery, too. What do you think?
well gosh. I like it, heres the trouble and its purely a philosophical argument .. and before I say anything or you think im bashing, let me preface this by saying I applaud you for pointing out that you "borrowed heavily" from another site. You could have left that off, and didnt, so kudos to you for being honest.
Now ..I do like it, but, is it yours? Your imagination, your vision?
The CSS for instance, for the top horizonal menu.. is a verbatim copy. Im not sure thats borrowing.
Its a philosophical argument, like I said, I know lots of ppl dont mind being "copied" but can get pretty shitty when someone lifts their CSS. Im, with the help of STK, on this forum, redoing my own site and I have an inspiration, of course, Ive been doing a little bit of looking at it, then looking at mine, comparing, etc.. I want it to be "like it" but not 'zactly the same -- In the end Im safe though -- my inpirational site is all tables :) and my site wont be!!! yay!!
If you like your site, I like your site. Personally, I wouldnt copy it verbatim, but thats just me :)
PS: once thing I like more than anything, is the blogcabin name, catchy, and hopefully all yours :)
