Here's my 100% Drupal redesign of Horrorview.com, a site I've been running since around 2002. Drupal proved to be the best solution I could imagine for the redesign, as it's not only made the site look and function much better, but it's made updating it on the daily basis an absolute breeze. It took me around three months, but that's because I had over 2500 reviews to port over (from standard HTML!). I learned a lot of stuff on the fly (didn't know a lick of PHP, and my CSS skills were rudimentary at best). I'm proof that Drupal isn't just a tool for hardcore developers and web gurus. Heck, if I can do it, anyone can!!
Once I got my head around Views and CCK, the rest came relatively easy, and the customization Drupal afforded me made the rebuild a joy. Thanks to this platform, I've fallen in love with building websites all over again. :)
Note: This site, while live, is still very much a work in progress, as I add new features and functions pretty much as quick as I learn how!! :P
