Helping with a great program

Postby CollegeforKids » June 16th, 2009, 9:39 pm

Hey,

As you know I'm new to Sandbox - just a few days into it, really. I've been teching it to elementary-aged children as Mike teaches it to me. Together the children and I are quickly beginning to love this program.

I am interested in assisting in a number of ways:

:arrow: Documentation - wikis, tutorials, videos. Essentially re-wording what Mike tells me and making it available to the public.
:arrow: Teacher material? As I teach my kids I find many good ways to teach and I've created a number of fun, colorful 'Cheatsheets' that make all the difference in my class.
:arrow: Artistry - I've been doing traditional art for my entire life and digital art since I was 11 years old. I'm interested in working with textures, advertisements, logos, anything 2D (haven't mastered blender!) I am however versed in Flash animation and actionscript.
:arrow: Website management - I've been coding xhtml and css by hand since 12 years old. I can help with anything in that area.

Kinda off-topic, but you might want to look at this:
http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1 ... ios.com%2F
You're forgetting a few things in your XHTML...you need to use

Code: Select all

<script type="text/javascript" src="home.js"></script>
You're missing a closing div tag in there, from what I see. And don't forget, <img>, <hr> <br> tags are also supposed to be self-closing too. To finally get your code to validate, every <img> tag should have an alt attribute.
Aside from that, you need to remove the name attribute from the image and recode it to use id, and that would get your site to validate. ;)

I've been working with XHTML and CSS for a while, myself. :)

This validates, by the way.

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">

<h2>Welcome to Caitlin Marie Studios</h2>
<p>Hi there, and welcome to my website. Here you will find a huge variety of different projects I have completed throughout my lifetime. This is essentially a giant portfolio of everything about myself. I fear this may be the most vain I have ever felt, but I do hope you understand that my portfolio - and therefore any 'tooting of my own horn' - is a truly neccessary evil. In the top left corner you will find links that will lead to my biography and contact information. In the top right corner you will see each main 'category' of various kinds of arts I induldge in. Feel free to look around.</p>

<p>Please bear with me as my life is unbelievably busy and I won't often have time to update this. As you can see from my hobbies/interests I always have something that needs doing!</p>

Haha yeah, I know. My own website is pretty much a terrible example of my actual coding skills. It was made as an entry for a scholarship that I procrastinated until I had about...oh...6 hours left to submit? So that's why the flash is so 'chunky' (slow loading) and I didn't bother validating (It was for The Art Institute...they just want it to be pretty...)

Thanks for catching that, though. You reminded me that I need to go back and change a few things.

No problem. :)

You should've seen me on IRC when Mike added the ads to the board template files. He ruined by beautiful validation! :evil:

Ended up fixing that though. :lol:

Fah! Your "working" code did not validate! Besides, it was because I borrowed parts of your code that caused that bit of a mess with how the site appeared.

In the end, IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT.
