"Right now the site is a basic WordPress blog setup... but we hope to change that with the help of our community! We are looking for talented web designers and artists to help us design a WordPress tbheme and/or webpage templates that will transform QMO into a well designed, user friendly, and exciting website to visit. We hope QMO will give our users a central place to come to learn more about QA, work better together, and find new ways to get involved in the Mozilla community.

"I'm no artist, and I'm fairly new to WordPress, so I have failed miserably in trying to put a theme together myself. I did find one 'Firefox' theme, but it was based on Firefox 1.0 art and just didn't feel quite right for QMO. Please help us by coming up with fresh new designs and send your themes/templates to qmo@mozilla.org with 'QMO Theme' as the subject.

"More info about our plans for QMO can be found at http://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozilla_QA_Community:QMO_Design. It is the best place to keep notes and track progress as we work together to make QMO a reality! Please feel free to add your ideas there and comments there.

"If we decide to use your theme for QMO, you will be our first QMO Hall of Fame member and will receive a special gift from the Mozilla QA team. :-) Thanks for reading and start sending us some cool ideas. We look forward to seeing all of your great designs!"

Hey jabcreations.

1. The site will be built around a WordPress blog, so we will be starting off with a them built for WordPress, and then will be created mostly static web content. We hope to build dynamic web apps in the future, but for now no serverside languages will be used.

2. The overall layout, color sets, graphics, and content are the most important pieces for QMO at this time... we just want to get something up that is presentable and has the foundation we need to build on top of.

3. We don't want to get too fancy with sound and multimedia just yet, so I don't see any issues with browser compatibility.

Thanks for your questions, hopefully I have answered them for ya. :-) - Jay
