The purpose of the website.
I am trying to create a space where people can go to share an idea they have about psychology or neuroscience. The rules are simple, the idea has to be 500 characters or less and it has to cite (by that I mean put a link in) at least one academic study or newspaper article. Once an idea is posted, it moves to a "leader board" where it can be voted on by the public. Presumably, the best ideas will garner the most votes and vice versa. Visit http://whywereason.xanthas.com to see the bones of this.
Right now the website is in rough shape. I want to make it look great. First, I want the space where you enter in the idea to look like a speech bubble. In addition, I want all of the ideas on the leader board to have similar bubbles around them. Second, I want the spacing and design around the voting buttons (e.g., genius, respect....) to be much better. Overall, everything needs to be clean and simple.
