Dear Manuel,

There is any beta available how vote process will look like ?

I'm looking on this page and begin little worry:
I imagine that we can have hundreds players and don't imagine self to click one-by-one "View" to find the best one. After 10-20 times every person will be off.

I think about use something like that: Website Thumbnail Generator
To make some gallery 100x100 where most layout can be easy judge. Ex. replace user avatar with page screen shot - see screenshot is more important for me as voter than watching person avatar because i'm focused on layout choose not nice avatar face choose ;)

It will be more voter friendly - please think about it.

Sorry, it is not yet finished.

I thought of generating thumbnails, but there is no time to work on that now.

I think there will be about 20 contestants. It is not so much, so it may not be necessary.

I intend to have a sort of slide show to switch between previews of each theme using AJAX, so users do not have to fully load the page to switch to the next theme to vote.

what operating system are you using?
I could write up a small python ( cross-platform ) program to generate these for you.

Thanks for the offer but I will not be generating thumbnails in this contest. The design preview system lets you try the same design for different types of pages, different users, and different screen resolutions. It would take too many thumbnails to generate all possibilities.

Instead, now it is possible to switch to the next and previous themes using navigation buttons.
