Free Parallax banner designed by the Honey Bear...

Here is an opportunity to have a professionally designed parallax banner designed by yours truly (me) for your website (any style) and all you have to do is answer one simple question...

How many Synthasite/Yola websites have been built using Yola's site builder since the begining?

For the next two weeks everybody who wishes can enter (Until June 5th 2011). Only one guess per member please... Post your answers in this thread. Yola will answer (I hope) this question after the 5th.

The winner (one closest to the actual nubmber) will explain in detail the key visual wants/needs for their website and I will take from the vast resources I have accumulated and design them 3 renditions to choose from.

Imagine a cool multi-layered banner with layer upon layer of transparent images all floating around that moves when moused over. How cool would that be? See my website for an example of what a parallax banner looks like.

Any theme or size with either vertical, horizontal or both movements possible...

Feeling lucky? Take a guess... Join the 2011 craze that is Parallax... Be the second on the Yola block to have one ;) LOL

Good luck...

Happy site building
Ed

If the lady bears don’t find you handsome they should at least find you handy...You can find me with my head in the honey pot here...

Okay seeing as how this is not getting any traction I'm probably gonna ask that it be deleted. Maybe the question was too difficult. LOL I would imagine and fathom a guess of over 4 million.

Maybe 4,123,089

LOL Okay I started with a guess... Any others?

Well Safi this is your lucky day... Seeing as how this thread got no action and you were the only one to take a guess you won yourself a Parallax banner if you want one. Just let me know which style you use and I will design 3 for you to choose from. I already have some in mind that would suit your site well. I just need you to contact me at the very last link below by using the contest entry form. Mark it (re: Parallax banner)

Quite possibly it might have been too difficult a challenge to guess how many yolasites have been built (no more guesses please) so here is an easier contest for you that will really put your eyes to the test...

Take a look at both of the following pages and find all the differences between the two pages. There are some toughies in there so you have your work cut out for you.

My index page: http://www.honeybearplayhomes.com/

Copy of my index page: http://www.honeybearplayhomes.com/ind...

List all the differences that you see in the provided form: http://www.honeybearplayhomes.com/con...

I will check all the replies after the 5th and the first one that I find that has correctly given the most differences I will also create a Parallax banner for their website. Please only one entry per person.

Good luck... ;)

Well it seems nobody is interested in a parallax banner as I haven't had even one entry...

Too bad... ;)

Here are the two that I made for Safi.

One for his movie related pages: http://parallaxtest.yolasite.com/inde...

One for his games related pages: http://parallaxtest.yolasite.com/inde... Pretty cool interactive banner if you asked me.

Boy and he even got a new custom logo out of it too... ;) 3 days left...

Sorry Shannon that was changed as it would be nearly impossible to get an accurate number of sites as it was too difficult a question to answer. Too many sites have been created and then deleted so it was changed to an easier contest. See below...

Thanks for all your entries... It was a fun test of perception and now that it is over here you go...

A list of the 12 differences that I changed in the copy of my index page...

1) Little boy Park Ranger on the swing under the menu has his eyes open.
2) Image of the Lithuanian coat of arms has been reversed.
3) Boy with net trying to catch a bee has his shirt change from green to grey.
4) Bee has been rotated 90 degrees.
5) Moving flash clouds are not in the banner background.
6) House (roof and door) color has been changed from red to blue.
7) Dripping honey from the bee hive is not there.
8) Old Park Ranger standing on the Home sign in the lower right corner is reversed after mouseover.
9) Grass with flower footer image has been reversed.
10) Little blonde girl is not inside the house.
11) “Super Sale” and “Best Sellers” buttons have been reversed.
12) Bear in bee costume has his wings removed when moused over.

And the winner is Nathan and his answers were:

1) On your index page, the little guy on the navigation has his eyes closed but on the copy his eyes are open.
2) On your index page, the house on the banner at the top is red but on the copy it's blue.
3) On your index page, there are clouds moving under the Parallax banner and on the copy there are none.
4) On your index page, the grass at the bottom is going towards the right, but on the copy the grass is blowing towards the left and the little flowers look different on the copy.
5) On your index page, there is honey dripping down from the bee hive but on the copy there isn't any.
6) The little "Please share the bear" icons are switched up between both pages. - On the bee hive at the very bottom when you hover over the bee, it shows a message but the wings don't disappear but on the copy, the wings disappear.
7) On the guy at the bottom (that says HOME) when you hover over him on the index copy, he gets backwards and different..
8) The "Super Sale" and "Best Sellers" buttons are different colors on the copy than the main index page.

Nathan, truth be told you got in total 7 correct as the “Please share the bear” Addthis icons are not always controllable by the website (me) itself. In most part they are or would be different due to changes made by the visitor to any other site with the “Add this” button. For example if I was to visit a site and use the settings section of the Addthis popup then I can change which icons appear. Sometimes the changes take effect on all the pages I view with the Addthis feature and sometimes they do not. Or they could be controlled by a higher power. ;)

Let me know by using the entry page again what style you currently use and what your website is/means to you and I will put a really cool parallax banner together for you. I already have something in mind that I think you will simply love and will fit your site well (pretty sure)...

Thank you so much! :) I'm so glad I won, I love these banners they are so awesome! I'll go ahead and send through that form again. I might want one for my Free Scripts & HTML Codes site that I'm still making instead of one for my other site because that site was just like for fun but the one I'm making has a better purpose. I'll send the URL to you so you can see the site and colors and stuff. I don't want anyone to see my site quite yet because it isn't ready. I wanted to release it months ago but I kinda got off schedule.

Thanks!
Nathan
