From time to time we'll see a twitter comment or get an email beseeching us to sell to other countries. And we've fielded a couple of inquiries over the years from fast-talking entrepreneurs who want to license the Woot name for similar sites in their native lands. In the end, those ideas have all proven to be more hassle than they would be worth. But there's no hassle in turning that idea into Photoshop fodder. Your challenge this week:
Show us the homepage for a version of Woot geared toward some country other than the United States.
Obviously, if you're a racist, you probably have all kinds of racist ideas for racist entries. They won't win. Please don't bother submitting them.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM (central) on Monday, April 20, 2009. Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 550px. If you need a place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com. We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use. And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
