Some of you may have guessed by now that I am not actually particularly keen on the current design of plasticbag.org, but that I felt I had to change the last one, which was generally not well-liked. Unfortunately the problem is that I don’t have much time to work on the site at the moment, other than to post, of course, so here’s a proposition for you.
You do it. Here are the three blogger templates that make up the current site: [main template: index.shtml] [archive include: archive.shtml] [consumption include: recently.shtml], exactly as they appear on blogger at the moment. What I want you to do is to come up with something better. Make sure all images are in a separate directory from the index page and includes so that I can swap designs around relatively quickly, and make sure to test out your design first in blogger before you send them to me. Also – make sure that you put something on the page which indicates that you designed the “skin” and include a link – as prominent as you like (as long as it fits in with the design). All decent designs will be used.

There is an irritating feature of the way all posts are currently formatted on plasticbag.org which means that there is a paragraph tag between each block of text and at the end of each post. Line breaks are NOT translated. This is not going to change in the short-term since it goes back over a year now and so it is important that any template can deal with this.]
