Well, if there /is/ a mockup, then implementation is not the biggest problem.

If the mockup consists of html and css, then even better, then the
effort to add it to the site is minimal.

The tough part is deciding on what to actually put onto the page. Some
initial "made me happy/sad" feedback-mockups expended to a twitter
entry field - so not something I personally would consider appropriate
for the page, when the goal is to prevent questions being filed to

I'm happy to help out with changing a mockup into html, given any
graphical elements (button images) are provided. But the
design/content must be done by someone else :-)
