I just submitted a design for this contest (well, two actually) and it suddenly struck me that it may have been bad form (especially in light of the recent drama with Rapid Fire!..)

Is it cheap to take someone else's design and modify it? I mean, I like this same-logo-for-all look with only differing colours, but it doesn't really feel like a fair contest entry.. Should the designer of the original one get the credit? Thoughts? Comments? If it is commonly thought to be bad form, I'd ask Bill to ignore my entries..

It could be worse…. If you ripped off New Waves logo, we would be required to keel-haul you, chop you into little bitty pieces, have you flogged and then give you an atomic wedgie!

If you mean the existing TMP logos for Supporting or Sponsoring Members, that's OK. The original designers have donated them to TMP.

Suggestion . . .

I think the Templar Seal should be the starting point:

Just make sure they are shown with a base under the horse and a giant hand moving the figure!

Just a thought.

Thanks Bill. Didn't seem like it would be a problem, but I wanted to be sure.

Where is the contest conditions/ entry requirements Bill?

Will I get into the Knights TMPlar if I win the contest?

Odd… my entries didn't show up. Do you have to add them manually, Bill?

Ahhh… there they are now.

What happened with my submissions?
I send 2 logos to the contest about 2 hours ago, but they don't appear in the contest entries… did they went to the limbo?

It took about 8 hours for mine to show up. I think Bill might have to load them manually into the entries screen.
