GirlSense.com is shutting down on the 18th of July!
We have to save this brilliant site!
YouTube was great, it had a perfect design. Everyone loved it! So why would you need to change it?! But sadly, YouTube did!
Now everyone is ranting about it, and YouTube is standing back, relaxing, doing NOTHING!
We want our old YouTube back right?!
HELP US SPREAD THE WORD!
Forward this petition to your friends, on twitter, on facebook as well as the BBC news blogs comments.
The BBC News online website (http://news.bbc.co.uk) recently underwent a complete re-design, the results of which we believe were detrimental to the overall user experience and quality of the website.
Over 3,500 comments have been posted in response to the editor, the overwhelming majority of which are negative and detail specific reasons why the old design was better and should be retained.
Nevertheless, the editor arrogantly insists that "reverting to the old design is not something we're considering", blatantly ignoring to even acknowledge valid requests and comments by thousands of license fee payers, who in effect have paid for a failed re-design.
We have set up this petition in order to pressure the BBC into acknowledging the issue and considering options other than trying to fix a design that has failed in so many ways. We would rather see money spent wisely on making minor improvements to the previous design, a design that worked so well for the majority of its users.
We are not against change - change is welcome, but it should be meaningful, well thought out and not breaking up things that already work perfectly!
I surely cannot be the only one who thinks that the new logo for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow for 2014 is utter rubbish.
The fact that it cost £95000 to create beggars belief. Scandalous and criminal. Anyone who uses a computer could design a better one in 5 minutes. That can be put to the test.
Fashion Enter Ltd is a non-for-profit organisation which is trying to help emerging /fashion designers/textile designers/students/unemployed people as well as working with primary and secondary schools in the South West Bournemouth area.
We were kindly offered a boutique space at the Royal Arcade in Boscombe by the owner who saw the good in what we were trying to achieve. The problem arose when Bournemouth Council refused to offer us Discretionary Rate Relief on the units and have said that we need to pay £14k per annum. As a non-for-profit organisation we should not have been asked to pay this and now we have a running dispute with the Council. All we want to do is help students by providing a platform for them to showcase their designs.
We have been granted DRR with our other boutiques - one in Croydon and one in Barking so why should there be any difference with Bournemouth?
The proposed boutique was to house designers/students clothing, whilst the other half of the shop was to act as a workshop and help up skill unemployed people and get them back into work through our initiatives. The local press (The Echo), National press (Drapers Record) have picked up on this story as well. It is a huge shame that Bournemouth Council do not recognise what we are trying to do here. They see us as a National company as we have other boutiques in London however, that is not a valid reason to dismiss our company that is trying to help people.
We have contacted the MP of Boscombe who is on our side and trying to sort this matter out, however we need people to get behind us and show the Council that this is something that should not have been overlooked.
I need to present to the Council as many signatures as possible please stand with us here and show your support. For further information on this matter please visit www.fashioncapital.co.uk then go to Services and click on the scroll down menu - South West Office. All information is in there.
In 1997 the Australian Institute of Architects recommended 10 Murray Street, Hobart, a 1960s city building, for inclusion in the National Estate Register. Citta Property Group has bought 10 Murray Street and intends to demolish it as part of its redevelopment of the area surrounding Parliament House.
These plans have been considered by the Sullivans Cove Waterfront Authority and the Tasmanian Heritage Council, who have granted approval for the project to commence in 2010.
I feel we should support young australian designers:
TAFE NSW is planning on scrapping their Digital Media courses and replacing them with an IT Diploma that has a few subjects of a similar nature.
Previously, due to an agreement between TAFE NSW (Wagga Wagga) and Charles Sturt University, graduates of the Diploma in Digital Media have been able to articulate directly into the third year of a Bachelor of Arts (Multimedia). This has been largely due to the outstanding quality of work produced by our students, as well as the years of dedication and hard work by the teaching staff.
Thanks to the hasty and ill-thought decision of TAFE NSW, students will no longer be able to take advantage of this agreement. Additionally, students who enrolled in the course at the beginning of this year, under the assumption that they too would be able to go on to university, now find themselves stranded – in any sane situation, that would be considered a breach of contract.
TAFE NSW contends that the course they have instituted in place of Digital Media covers the same subjects and achieves the same outcomes – this is patently false. The new course contains no practical art subjects and has what amounts to a brief overview of animation and design. Students who complete this course will not be able to transfer their skills to university and hope to gain any subject credit. Additionally, the new course will be promoted under the name “IT (Multimedia)”, which has the potential to turn away scores of young people intimidated by academia.
Australia is already far behind the rest of the world when it comes to the arts, music, film and animation – do we really want to work towards making our nation even further behind? There is nothing to say about this pitiful decision, save that it is just not okay. It is tremendously short sighted; it may make sense in the short term, it will certainly improve the TAFE NSW bottom line – but at what cost to the community? How many more young people will leave Wagga Wagga because we don’t value the arts?
Sign this petition and help put pressure on TAFE NSW to reverse this decision immediately. For them to do anything less is tantamount to spitting on the efforts of both past students and the hard working teachers of Digital Media.
A new design has been unveiled for the Sterling coins. I feel it is a loss of our history, the symbol of Britannia has been on sterling since 1672. To change that tradition now would be a loss of heratige and a great shame.
I see no need to change the coins as I consider them well founded on the tradition of our country.
Britannia rules the waves!
GRS Web Support getting you down?
Ad Design causing you pain?
Since it was introduced in the latter half of 2007, the "Incomplete Setting Charge" has raised just under £39K - Money that could be fed back into Ad Design/GRS Web Support etc!
£39K could buy two new members of staff to help us SELL!
Also, this £39K does NOT sit on our targets but rather helps to pay off losses incurred by The G.
Give away land along East Court Street, including part of the sidewalk by abandonment, which in fact violates CBD design guidelines.
• Destroys forever the historic design and symmetry of the streetscape along this area that has been in existence since 1884.
• Compromises and breaks the historic sidewalk alignment of buildings on East Court and violates CBD design guidelines.
• Allows the building to project out on the street beyond the old Record (now Devereaux) building and the Poinsett Hotel.
• Compromises the symmetrical sight lines offset that the Liberty building and the original Palmetto building had with the old Court House and The Poinsett Hotel.
• Narrows the sidewalk at the point that it enters McBee Plaza.
• Establishes a dangerous precedent for the City to permanently give up part of a very busy sidewalk , currently in frequent use by the public, for private use for a few citizens to build larger condominiums.
• Never allow any improvement on McBee Plaza to within 5 feet of the Developer’s encroachment in the future for either the enjoyment or safety of the Public.
• Permanently impact adjoining landowners from seeking the best and highest use of his property by supporting their encroachment and their limits on any construction within 5 feet of the Developer’s private parking garage.
• Setting a dangerous precedent to give subsurface city land for private underground parking without establishing any criteria for benefits to the public good.
Our schools are telling us to make desicions for ourselves, but they give us only one side of the story.
I believe that all students should be given sufficent information to make their own decisions.
85% homeschooled children are taught intelligent design. Those children on average do 50-100 points better on their SATs, I believe that there is a correlation between these two facts.

We, the undersigned request a review and re-design of the current speed bumps placed at the entrance to City Park car park.
This is due to numerous complaints of cumulative motor vehicle damage.
Few people realize that intelligent design is a science. It is a theory just as evolution is. However schools are not allowed to teach intelligent design, but they are allowed to teach evolution.
Students in our schools are only being exposed to one possible theory on the most primitive questions about our existence. Isn't it the duty of our schools to present students with the information they need to form their own conclusions? How can they be fulfilling their responsibilities if they are not allowed to teach intelligent design?
I personally am a Christian and believe that the theory of intelligent design is true, however my opinion on whether or not the theory of intelligent design is true is irrelevant.
If the theory of evolution is allowed to be taught despite its flaws, then intelligent design should also be taught in our public schools.

Abney Park Garden Cemetery is a 32-acre historic park and nature reserve in Hackney, north London - one of Britain's poorest inner-city boroughs. Over the years it has become dense woodland, and is a unique place of retreat from the pressures of urban life. It is a national as well as a local treasure.
It is the heart of a Conservation Area, and the Council has policies to protect it from noise and disturbance. It is on the point of violating those policies by approving a school which will create noise and disturbance within a few feet of one of the most sensitive areas - the quiet corner where, in the 18th century, Dr. Isaac Watts retired to write his famous hymns.
A local community association, which is sponsoring this petition, welcomes a school in principle, but wants its scale and design to respect the setting and comply with planning policies.
Your signature will go to Hackney's head planning officer.
Our website (see above) will give you a fuller picture of what is at stake.
Childhood may never be quite the same again - the maker of Smarties has announced it is to ditch the colourful chocolates' tube-shaped packet.
Nestle Rowntree is to replace the beloved 68-year-old cylindrical design with a hexagonal or six-sided pack.
The removable plastic lid on the current design will also go in favour of a cardboard flip-top.
Nestle Rowntree said the revamp was needed to ensure the brand remained "fresh and interesting" to youngsters.
(The above is from the BBC website).
Neil Ducray is talking arrant nonsense and this should be stopped - lets do to Nestle Rowantree what happened to 'New' Coke!
Bring back the Tube!
17. Rivals Re-Design
This is a petition for all of the Rivals.net publishers to sign to show how eager we are for a new design of our websites on the Rivals network.
We have kept the same design of our sites for around four years and feel its time for a new design to be implemented.
Please give your support to this by stating your name and the site which you run.
The University of Alabama's Graphic Design Program is in need of both software and hardware upgrades. We are currently running Mac OS 9.2, Photoshop 6.0, and QuarkXPress 4.1, to name a few, all of which are now outdated. The iMacs in our lab are unable to support the required upgrade to Mac OS X that is needed to run the new versions of these programs.
In order to keep our programs up-to-date, we need to purchase both new computers and current software. We are requesting the funds to ensure the quality of our students' education.
For several decades the former Australian Atomic Energy Commission, now the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation has been making application to successive Commonwealth Governments for a replacement to the multipurpose reactor HIFAR at Lucas Heights.
In 1992 a public inquiry was conducted by the Commonwealth Government called the Research Reactor Review, or McKinnon Review. The Review recommended a 5-year pause on consideration of the case for a new reactor for further assessment of issues including questions on Australia's need for a new reactor.
In 1997 the current Commonwealth Government announced that a new nuclear reactor would be established at Lucas Heights pending assessment under the Environment Protection Impact of Proposals Act, 1974. An Environmental Impact Statement process was undertaken, resulting in a favourable report from the Commonwealth Minister for Health. Assessment included review of the proposal by three international peer review agencies. The Commonwealth Government confirmed its intention to proceed with the proposal in 1998. Tendering for the proposal was completed by June 2000 and the tender granted to Argentinian company INVAP. The licensing process for design and construction of the new reactor is currently under way, with approval to be granted by ARPANSA in February 2002. The new reactor, to be commissioned around 2006 will be twice the power rating of the existing reactor, which will be decommissioned at a date to be confirmed.
It is understood that a replacement reactor locational study employing international consultants was undertaken around 1996. The public and the councils were not included in this undertaking, which appears to have been performed by the Commonwealth Department of Industry Science and Tourism with advice from ANSTO. The locational study report remains a Cabinet-in-Confidence document.
A cost for the proposed reactor of $286 million has been estimated by ANSTO as part of the current development assessment process although secret government documents obtained via Freedom of Information requests made by Sutherland Shire Council have revealed that the government’s own cost estimate is around $500 million. No design for the reactor has yet been revealed, despite the international peer review stating that the safety arguments used to justify the proposal now impose specific design constraints on the reactor in order to achieve these promised safety levels.
In spite of polls, submissions, lobbying and the actions of several state governments to prohibit the development of the dumpsites which will be unavoidable with a new reactor, the Liberal Government is continuing it's blind charge towards a future contaminated with the nuclear waste produced by the proposed new reactor.
Please take this opportunity to voice your opposition to this project and to raise the call for a nuclear free future.
Several months ago, neopets.com was forced to change the design of a neopet called Fuzio (nowadays, the Neopet is called Capara), an online poll was held by the neopets staff to determine which of 4 totally new, totally seperate designs should be used as a replacement. Myself and many others believe that, while the choice ultimately made to replace Fuzio was a good one, the first runner up deserves a spot as an actual Neopet as well. This petition will be submitted to the Neopets staff in hopes that the show of support from actual Neopet users will prompt them to officialize this design. If you like this neopet (who we are tentatively calling Maniwori), then please sign this petition.
