Okay, let me preface this by saying that I am looking for a free template for my site... with a hitch. IF this site takes off, I will send some money your way AND give you a nice plug in my book.
I own UniqueForumSigs.com and am going to be looking for the most unique forum signatures out here on the internet, and will be eventually writing a book about this. Users will be able to view different signatures and rate them and leave feedback.
The site is being inspired by the book "The Internet's 505 Worst Web Sites" (Barnes & Nobel's, Borders).
This site'll also provide resources and tutorials on how to make some awesome signatures, and will be driven by donations.
I'm not too concerned about the colors, though I would like to try to mesh together with the forum colors that I've got going with the site right now.
In exchange, I will make sure that you're on the Supporter's page, in the footer of every page and a nice plug in the book, if it does get released, as well as monetary compensation, once the site gets going. I am hoping that there will be enough support and book purchases (will be available in printed copy and eBook format) that I won't have to resort to slathering the site with any form of advertising.
This will also help out other sites by giving them links and hopefully building up their Search Engine ranking, since I will be linking to other sites.
If you are interested in this, please provide samples of your work here in this thread (no Private Messages or Email, please). Please provide contact information (Email or IMs).
I'd like to thank you, in advance, for considering this.

so you are basically asking for a nice template for your forum? and for 'free'...
i would consider if 1) i have more time to do it 2) more importantly, could have given your my portfolio, as i do not have one, and don't intend to have one. since i'm not actually from a company. but do work professionally.
