Do you remember all the hoopla and awesome designs that came from past CSS Reboot’s? I do.
Maybe it’s just me but I think the reboot has lost its excitement. There were a few good redesigns this time around but not like what we’ve seen in the past. I’m afraid its become just another way to get a few extra visitors.
Many of the sites don’t even validate. I understand that’s not the most important thing in the world anymore but isn’t that the point of the reboot?
What do you think? Did you reboot?
I totally agree with you. I remember a sort of aura of excitement and lots of buzz surrounding the fall reboot — none of which was present this time around.
I intended to reboot, but after I saw that the whole site had been changed around and that it was under new owners, I just launched my design when it was finished, which was around the beginning of April.

Yeah, it’s lost the buzz it once had. When mike sold it, things went downhill.

I rebooted three sites – but under Standards Reboot, the one that has proven to be the better as of now.

I think that if more standards were enforced, the reboots would be more successful; in fact, the only way to encourage standards, it seems, is to try and enforce them — by education, or by exclusion, in matters like this. It makes me sad to see invalid sites all over the pretty reboot page. It’s like the whole thing’s collapsing because some people are too lazy to make things work 🙁

Yeah, quite true. It can’t be too difficult for those in charge of the reboot to simply check if each of the sites pass the W3C’s validation engine.
I remember I wanted to reboot, but the reboot isn’t located during a good month for me to do it–I’m too busy during the school year to be focusing on redesigning websites.
