    * Mozilla Foundation Seeking Designer for $1,000,000

    Hey you web designers take notice

    The Mozilla Foundation is looking for a graphic designer to design its new online donations site, with the aim of raising US$1,000,000 over the next year. So far almost US$100,000 has been donated online and the Foundation is keen to build on this success with its Mozillion campaign, which borrows from the recent Internet fundraising efforts of several US presidential candidates. Interested designers must submit a Mozillion logo, homepage mockup and a design for one internal page of the campaign site by midnight Pacific Daylight Time on Friday 7th May.

    I hope you don't mean that they are paying the designer $1,000,000 - did you read the article?

    Budget: $0. This is a volunteer endeavor

    Yes, I can read. I'm glad you can, too. Are you familiar with the way newspapers and other media outlets oft compose headlines?

    it is real catchy, I bet they can raise the million pretty easily. However, if a good designer volunteers, they can get some publicity

    I am, but does that mean we need to adobt their style of headlines? The title is just flat out misleading.

    The proper grammatical assumption from constuction is something was sought for a pupose. Seeks X for (a purpose). In this case it's a designer being sought for a purpose. That you misconstrued purpose for salary ... well, that's you for you. ;p While my intent wasn't to mislead, I knew there would be sufficient numbers of people who would miconstrue the meaning for one lack or another. I wanted to stir up some attention. Look, I succeeded Are you done trolling now?

    I didn't ask if you could read. Clearly you can. There is no need for the attitude I asked if you read the article.

    Yes, I am "familiar" with the way that media outlets word headlines to make them seem more than what they are, and quite frankly, since you seemed serious in your post, I assumed you had fallen victim to just that, since, in my opinion, it was quite obvious in both the headline and the article what they were looking for. It was YOUR title here, and ONLY your title, that was misleading in any way.

    Not only that, but seeing as how Mozilla is an open source project and most likely relies upon donations, it would be very unlikely for them to pay a designer $1,000,000 for a design. It very clearly states that they are seeking a designer for a $1,000,000 donation website. What's the problem? I didn't find it misleading at all.

    So you wrote in a way that you knew could be misconstrued, in order to stir things up... nothing wrong with that. But that is the definition of trolling, so why are you accusing someone else of doing it?

    pmoduk2, as I said here you may want to sort out your non-validating pages before criticising a browser's inability to render "correctly".

    Not a criticism as such, just an observation.

    Very Misleading! I was going to send this to my friend thinking they could get $1,000,000 for a design and possibly some other things, but you crushed that dream. Can a moderator please change the topic title? Its very misleading.
