At long last, it’s time to announce the winners of our CSS Theme Contest!
With full themes the bar is set much higher and we also allowed just a single submission per user. As a result we ended up with fewer submissions, which led to a last-minute decision to rebalance the prize pool across 4 prizes as opposed to the announced 5.
The winners are as follows:
4th place: “Discourse Greek” by @udan11
3rd place: “Well-Rounded” by @tshenry
2nd place: “Fresh Theme” by @molszew
1st place: “Lightbox” by @PullJosh
Thanks a bunch for participating This will be the last contest we do for the foreseeable future. Going forward we will put the contest format on hold in favor of nurturing our themes ecosystem with the Encouragement Fund approach. While contests are good for building buzz and excitement they don’t incentivise iterative and transparent development mentored by the crowd, which is our and (there’s some butter on top there).
To the designers: Please tell us all about your impression of Discourse themes thus far, and where you’d like them to go from here.
