WP Themes: A Close Race

Alex Kings’s WordPress v1.5 Theme Competition is now closed, and we are all patiently awaiting the results. In my opinion, this is one competition which will be very difficult to call. There are 139 themes to choose from and at least half of them are worthy of first prize. Obviously, I chose Rin, but it was a hard decision due to other entrants such as Gespaa (and Gespaa v2), Green Marinée, Minema Plus, Plain Vanilla, Ocadia, RDC, and Wuhan. As a side note, Blix, Kubrick (WP v1.5 Default), Manji, and TicTac-Wuhan are all great themes, but they were not entered into this competition.


  1. I’m glad you like my themes. Alex told me TicTac – Wuhan wasn’t allowed in the competition because it was ported and couldn’t be released under GPL. But isn’t Minimal Plus ported from here too?
    It’s all good though! =)

  2. Wuhan’s great. I like it even better now that it validates (I should blog that, shouldn’t I?). I like TicTac just as much. It’s a shame it wasn’t included in the competition.
