Derek Pennycuff replied to DJ Turner's discussion Stolen Website Design
"Oh wow, you're right. They still have an H1 and an H3 that mention Denver Seminary by name. I guess it's too much to expect thieves to not be sloppy. And I was using "you" in "your work" in the collective sense. :)"

"Officially, my cut off is 2%. But I test in Safari and Opera and those are both well below 2% for us. Most on campus computers are still running IE6. In the redesign I'm working on, IE6 gets a lot of the bells and whistles hidden from it, so…"

"I've admired your work since I first saw it on EduStyle. But there's a big thick line between looking for inspiration and straight up theft. I've seen plenty of clone sites in higher ed, but this is a blatant example. Unfortunately,…"

Associate Professor of Web Design at Tennessee Technological University

"Sadly, the bit about the need for critical thinking and what not I would be inclined to agree with, had the first paragraph not made such a terrible first impression with me. :("

"Wow. Thanks Mark. Some of the general trends from the discussions on other forums show up at the Chronicle. I see other people talking about the catch 22 of "you must have a Masters to teach, but how do you get a Masters when there aren't…"

"Planning a dream kitchen is like redesigning a website. It's easy to change the colors, but if the content doesn't provide what users need, your site visitors will not find value. So where do you start?"

Solution for deluge of daily emails?

So way back in "the day" (eight or so years ago), our employee/student email inboxes were routinely deluged with 40+ individual email messages per day due to the "campus-wide" email lists being open for anyone here to send messages to.Enough people eventually decried the situation, so we came up with an email/website "publication" that was basically akin to a "daily digest email" of what were originally individual messages.This was highly successful and took a large part of the burden off of…See More

Best CMS option

It's time for us to move away from our current CMS, and I was wondered what is working best for others: a pre-packaged solution, or building your own with WordPress, Drupal or ...?See More
