Christmas is coming and you can win one of the following prizes!
* 1st place - Yola Silver (or free renewal)
* 2nd and 3rd place - A custom domain (or free domain renewal)

We are opening this contest to all of our Yola customers! Here's the scenario:

Imagine that Santa Claus has called you up and asked you to design a webpage for his workshop. How would you do it?

Here are the guidelines:
1. You must use the CleanSlate Template.
2. Only one submission per user.
3. Design just a one-page website.
4. Site's content must conform to Yola's Terms of Service.
5. Once submitted, no more tweaking please!
5. Submission deadline December 5th, 12am PST - submit it here on this thread with a screenshot (you can use this tool if you want) and link!

Our team will have the pleasure of looking through and deciding the top 3 winners. We will announce the winners on December 13th!

Be creative, have a great time and good luck to you all!

Well I got mine off a CD. Try looking a 4shared.com. Just make sure the music is legally free before you download though! :)

I just found out my website's music doesn't work on Firefox. I create a Preferences thing and you click it and it drops down and then you can turn the music on and off from there but it does not work now. It works fine in Google Chrome, just not Firefox. Do the judges have Chrome?

Thanks,
Nathan

Hi Nathan,
Most of us do have Chrome. When submitting your site, please make a note to view it in Chrome in order to hear the music playing :)
Cheers!

I would like to watch everyone's site again, but unfortunately up at this page you can see the following message only: Due to volume, only the 15 most recent replies are being displayed.

Sanja, is it possible to make all the entries visible here?

Hi, I am sorry, but once they have been truncated they are gone (I know, its sad and dumb) It is not Yola's fault though. It is the forum provider of this forum service (Which is Get Satisfaction) They are working on making them into pages instead of truncating them because those are important posts!

I am sorry there is not better news I can give you.
