I would like a WordPress (2.x) theme for an online poker tutorials blog. This site is intended to be a free information source, so please bid accordingly.
CSS without the ned for tables is preferred, but whateve rworks will be fine provided the following requirements are met:
1. Theme must load quickly
2. Theme must not be so bogged down with "bonus" features that (for example) a simple CSS rollover takes 30 seconds to "catch up" to the mouse
3. Anything noteworthy must be commented. (An occasional comment line here and there will suffice... just make it quickly scannable)
4. Theme should be about poker. Not casino, not roulette, not dice... Poker. Just poker. Don't particularly care what specific type, just a few cards and chips against a green felt backdrop, etc.
Hand drawn is fine, or masked photo objects (cards, etc.) are also fine. The theme should be eye catching enough to give the impression of "this site looks reasonably professional so I'll stick around for a few more pages and read what they have to say".
All bids must be accompanied by a RELEVANT concept piece. Please don't send me to a page of automotive logos. I want to see your graphic or artistic style, but I want to have an idea of what you've got in mind for THIS theme.
That said, I'm a lot mroe flexible that I sound. I just wanted to clarify what I'm looking for, though I'm open to new ideas.
You're welcome to "borrow" whatever underlying code, layout, widgets, etc. you want from another already created theme.
