Help Wanted!

A site like Carve Awesome Pumpkins cannot succeed without the support of multiple people. If you would like to get involved with this project, please take a look at the list below and see where you might be able to help out.

Something for Everyone

  • Suggest Patterns

I started off the site with almost 8,000 patterns from 3 websites. I know there are more patterns out there on the web.  You can help out by suggesting new patterns to be added. There’s a form on the right-hand sidebar.  All you need to provide is a link to where the pattern can be purchased (or downloaded if it’s a free pattern).

If you know of a website that has several patterns, you don’t have to submit them individually. Just one submission of the website will be fine and we’ll take it from there.

  • Organize Patterns

Getting 8,000 patterns organized is a huuuuuge task. We got a large part of the way there by taking the categories the pattern designers used and combining them, but there’s still a good amount of work to be done. The categories themselves could use some refinement. Many, many patterns also need keywords added to improve the search accuracy.

  • Suggest Features

At the time of launch, Carve Awesome Pumpkins is a bare-bones version of what I’d like to see it become. In the interest of getting the site up and running before Halloween, some features were left out.  I would love to hear what features you’d like to see added. I might already have them on my list, or I might not. Either way, more ideas = good.


Web Designers

I’m a programmer, not a designer. Carve Awesome Pumpkins could use some prettying up. Do you have an eye for design?  Know HTML and CSS?  Familiar with WordPress (not necessary but nice to have) ?
