The Uncanny Robot graffiti is now live. I know this is the start of a holiday weekend, but don't worry, it will remain live for at least a week; I needed to have a live contest while working on the homepage today so I just opened it up.

The going live has brought a problem with the light box, at least for me, to my attention. When pics open in the light box, they don't auto-resize in the browser, so that you can see the full pic. I'm left scrolling around the image thinking, this might be a real nice pic, if I could take it in all at once, as opposed to in sectors.

Yeah I can understand that. I still like the lightbox script we have, so what I'm doing is adding a condition.

If the image is greater than 1000 pixels wide OR 700 pixels high, it will now use the old popup window. If it's less than those dimensions, it uses the Lightbox. My resolution is 1280x1024 and I am catering to that size, but it should be adequate for 1024x768 users as well.


Edit: hah, this makes it strange going through the "Beat the Heat" photo contest; every other entry is either a popup, or Lightbox.

Cool, my screen res on the desktop is 1280x960, and the wide screen laptop's res is greater than that.

Reminder, we have just two graffiti contests going live this week, but next week will start the new schedule of a contest on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

If you have the time and an idea, you should do an entry for one of the two contests this week!

Monday 9/27 @ 9 AM EST: Can I Get This In Pink?
