    Ok wizzard, sorry.

    I apologize to all the staff if I had the idea to post this comment. I have no intention of doing such a thing because this is a serious contest to which I am participating with great enthusiasm.

    Play fair always.

    I'd like to see if membership has spiked since this came about. It seems most of the entrants so far have their first post onsite as an entry into the comp.:p

    Half of the ones posted aren't following the rules. I know one had the AMD Fusion dragon, I don't think that's ok, right?

    I like the idea, and if not for my watercooling I would definately buy one. Still might if they allow the right features. Then I could put the cooler on display, or mebe haev the design printed out and airbrushed on my case. My wife is getting a airbrush set for doign nails, and I believe with a exacto and good masking tape I could make some clean designs.

    Trust me I have already sent out several messages and you're right they are not reading the rules and the only acceptable logos are the ones provided... if they want to waste an entry then so be it ...

    I am glad to see that I am not the only one seeing designs not made by these posters. I mean come on some guy used a game wallpaper and posted it with a little work.

    Create your own people. I think you should have to show proof of work with Layers or a complete PSD of the original design made by you and not something you have taken from the web.

    In the rules

    All artwork must be original and the property of the person submitting. All submitted entries become the property of HIS. HIS reserves the right to request proof of originality of artwork. Entries may be denied if substantiation cannot be proven.

    I only see 3-4 submissions so far that don't seem to be violating any copyrights.
    I'll be happy to submit all original material to W1z if requested.

    Is there a reason why some people have posted more than 3 (three) designs, or are they just not reading the rules :shadedshu

    I agree, also the lot of them use characters from the games... not sure if thats protected by copyright... i think it is?:confused:

    I think its best if you just delete the ones that violate copyright... not even show them in the contest submission thread

    Agree with you! Many of the competitors are using also not approved logos/copyright pictures - many of them made a designs with copyrighted materials and/or custom ATI logos, the rest of them sees that and they also use copyrighted materials and/or custom logos. That's why i think they should be deleted...

    Eh... since they won't take the time to figure out what a copyright is then maybe they should just be allowed to waste their entries. It means better chances for those of us that know how to read. ;)

    I'll admit, some of them look bad@$$ so far but they can't be considered since HIS is going to own the material IF you win.

    I'm making my first design for the contest and I have a cuestion...
    [​IMG]

    Can I use the left logo?
    If not, I will remove it from my design, and if I can use it...Have you the same logo with more resolution? I couldn't find it with more and so when i scale it in photoshop it comes out distorted...

    P.D: I have read the rules but this logo is also an original logo from the distributer so I thought i can use this image too

    In the other post I saw some designs with the Ati crossfireX logo, which was also not provided, These aren't following the rules, right?

    Well...Now that I know this I can continue my design...Thanks

    This will be a good thread to watch. I have no talent with design but I love looking at artwork like this.

    Did you create EVERYTHING in them? You can ONLY use what you create, nothing that anyone has created and only the logo's that were provided in the first post.

    wait so I found a cool wallpaper at a FREE wallpaper site which holds NO copyrights

    can I use that?

    BTW I read the rules and its really annoying how no one reads the damn rules, half the submissions use the x-fire logo lol
