My site is due for a revamp and I'm THRILLED to have the option to acknowledge my presence on DVI but I won't be able to complete the changes in time for the contest. EXCELLENT idea though! Rest assured, the DVI Crew Member icon will be proudly displayed shortly on MY site!

I had to tweak your markup a little (my site's still HTML 4.01 Strict and I'm more than a little obnoxious about making sure it all validates), but between that and some CSS work on my existing elements I managed to find a spot to drop the 125x125 badge on my site. It's about time there's an official DVi button I can use to tell people about this place.

I both entered the contest and signed up for the newsletter mentioned at the bottom there; looking forward to its launch!

But I wonder what it will mean for any clients who might visit my web site. It's not that I'm not proud of DVInfo.

Andrew

PS. I've realy got to get my web site done. One day. Soon.

I have had a link to DV info in my link section at the bottom of every page for some time now but I have now added the 125*125 image to all of my pages. The only one that does not have a partner section is my home page but 90% of my traffic is to sub-pages so they will see the badge from the start.

After realizing that our Weekend Warriors don't really have a fair shot at a Wednesday to Friday contest, we've decided to extend the deadline for entries to 11:59pm Central Time Tuesday, November 24th. Now you have a whole week (more or less)!

Thanks for the extension

I would have surely missed it... now I will proudly carry the logo on my website Ervin Farkas.

Thanks!

My acceptance speech....First off, I'd like to thank Jeff for the contest, and of course Chris. Without Chris none of this would've been possible....... =)

Now I have my first HD camera!

"It pays to click on to DVInfo.net" Was that too cheezy? =)

Thanks to Chris and Jeff for the contest, and to the whole of the site's membership for making this a place I don't hesitate to recommend!

I ran out of space in my camera bag a long time ago; as I'm sure I've mentioned in the past, I've got everything in there but my camera. This fancy PortaBrace case should help me keep things organized (me organized, ha!).

Congratulations, Andris and David! Hope you enjoy your new toys as much as I know I will mine.
