Look at this: http://www.summerjam.de
Then have a look at the orginal: (release 2007)
http://www.rototomsunsplash.com/index.p ... _frontpage
or use wayback machine to have a look at older releases.
This raises some issues:
(1) We, as webdesigners, of course "inspire" ourselves with what we see on the web.
(2) We, as webdevelopers, of course "inspire" ourselves with what we see on the web.
(3) We, as webmasters, of course "inspire" ourselves with what we see on the web.
But when you take (1) (2) and (3) together that's a lot...
So my personal comments:
Site summerjam looks good but I can only regret that:
1) No copyright about phpwcms on front page or any page (only login.php, but you have to be a phpwcms devotee to know that
2) If you take a site and want to copy it, send at least an email or talk to the guy that put countless hours on building his site, or at least quote him in sources.
3) If you like a site and are planning to make a site ABOUT THE SAME SUBJECT using THE SAME CMS and using the SAME LAYOUT... well decency is that you talk to the guy (here Fulvio) that did all the work in the first place. Or at least associate him (that's what I would have done) when copying his site...
4) Worst part: they claim to be the biggest REGGAE FESTIVAL in Europe, which is pretty much the same as ROTOTOM SUNSPLASH FESTIVAL... (also BIG european reggae gathering). To quote someone: "If I'm Ferrari it's not smart to copy from McLaren..."
To quote their own website:
Well, at least this, one the one hand, shows that talented people are recognized for their work but sometimes get ripped off badly. (I don't believe they did this for free nor did Fulvio -who's main income is... making website- even had a thanks for all his work and help here in the forum)...Copyright:
