Are there any designs submitted that we can see and have an idea about what exactly is this about? Something like an example... because there are people that don't know the full site structure.
I for example, would love to try something but don't know what are the conditions/details of the contest.

Yeah, same problem here.
E.g. I would like to have some infos about the template marks. Can they be rewritten? I don't want to do just a design wrapper around an "ugly" table-system, but also would like to redesign some parts of the site itself.

Just go on the design editor page, create your theme, edit the main HTML template. It has no tables. You can use tables or not.
There are some mandatory marks. The meaning and syntax of the marks is explained in a tab of the editor form named "Template marks". Just click on that tab so you can see which marks are mandatory and what is their purpose.
Mandatory tabs cannot be omitted, nor made invisible. Some marks belong to the header, others to the footer. If you move them to the wrong section, the design is not accepted.

I don't want to remove or replace any marks. But some marks generate code, which results in tables, like the navigation or the user menu. What, if I would like to put the user menu vertically? Doesn't seem to be possible right now.
Sorry, I'm late to this contest. I should have asked earlier. ;-)

No, you can change the orientation of the navigation menus. Just click on the respective are in the HTML template editor and a menu will appear to let you switch the layout of the navigation bars. All bars support that.

Why can't we just slice our self made design? More contesters will join and the results would be better. It's quite hard to make a completely other design based on another.
But complaining... I made my first drafts to join. But I need a few additional divs I think. Isn't it possible to slice my custom layout by myself and send that to you? Awaiting your reply.
