Ok, I've started on a design prototype -- finally. Interestingly, it does NOT include the logo I've created before (see previous diary entries). What I like: the black section that includes the title is really high contrast, allows the nav area to be very noticable. Good. The bottom part is still in limbo. Things that need to be included:

  • News (or just headlines a la linux.com),
  • Newest themes w/ screenshots (80x60),
  • Screenshots (80x60),
  • Feature of the Day,
  • Poll,
  • and headlines from other sites.
The last one is a tricky one, many people oppose it, frankly, I find it useful (but we need more sites to pull from, like GraphicsMuse or Gnotices). I prefer an unobtrusive way like this (that prototype is not under development, it was scrapped months ago). The 3 column look will probably stick to themes.org forever, oddly. I have no idea why.
