Well I am interested.

One question though, can we make multiple submissions?

[edit] Does anyone have a high quality TN logo?
And how do the second and third place prizes work? Will they just recieve those items with the 1st place persons design on them? The way the contest is worded it sounds like they will also have their design put onto t-shirts and mugs.

So the logo that we make is going to be used on the clothing in the store.

Why not just keep it like it is with TN's logo on it already?

What's wrong with TN's real logo on the shirts now?

We want people to contribute with ideas that will sell stuff like T-shirts and expand our store.

People want more than just the TN logo on it.

As far as the TN logo goes, I have them available. Please e-mail me saying you want them, and I can get them to you.

Is Alex W the only staff member that knows the answer to my question about multiple submissions?
There is only 3 days left in the contest and I have a bunch of ideas, but I'm not going to bother making them if I can't submit more than one.....
Would it be possible to have the contest extended until 12pm of the 9th instead of 12am?

I have a question: Where on the design should we put a TN logo?

pipesdrums
02-04-2005, 04:20 PM
Why would it matter? Thats the point of the contest to see what we (the users) can come up with.
They didn't even say we had to use their logo and I'm thinking they would prefer us not to use it in a significant way so that the shirts are different from the current ones.

Are there any color restrictions? The older shirts have the TN logo on them which is black and blue basically. What if the logo has lots of different colors. Wouldn't that make the cost higher to produce them?

Steven
02-04-2005, 04:40 PM
From what I'm finding out... no. However, there's really no limit in colors (just don't go crazy).

How can you tell how large the logo's resolution is?? I know it has to be anywhere between 1000x1000 to 2500x2500. But what if it's not that size. How do you get it larger without making the logo's quality minimize.

Steven
02-04-2005, 10:36 PM
Our logos are at the resolution we require them to be. You should not have to worry about making the actual TN logo larger.

Any word on the multiple submission question?

Oh, I didn't mean the TN logo. Sorry for the confusion. I meant the finished product...

Steven

I would go for multiple submissions, but as far as prizes go, if you get in the top 3, you'll get the higher prize.

I'm curious (don't know if you will answer this or not) but how many people have entered the contest so far?

I sent a bunch of emails with files, but then i realized that the files don't look that great. I'll have to send another before next week.

For the ease of the person who has to deal with all the emails, you should just Zip all the images into one file...

Just to make sure, di you guys get my email? I think I put T-shirt in the subject. It should've been Tshirt contest, but IO may have put T shirt. I sent it yesterday though. Please tell me if you have it.

Holy crap! You only got 13 entries in total?:flip:

It's open now. thx


Hello. About my entry (number 2) it is supposed to have no backround color, and just be on white, but it displays on blue. I feel that it may lose votes if the backround is off white, so maybe there could be a comment that it is usually an invisible backround. If not, thanks you anyway.

My main question is if I can vote for my own entry. RSVP so I can vote. Thanks.

Dan G

Did one person send in all those ones of the No Limits trains. In my opinion, I don't think that's really fair because they have a much chance of winning the us who only sent in one. Although none of them are winning, I feel that maybe next time we could maybe do just one entry per person to make it a little more fair for others.

Hey,

That seems to be my fault (since I sized them). Iím not sure what happened. When I viewed the file in gmail it added the blue. However I re-downloaded your file and was able to fix it.

Jerry S
02-16-2005, 06:06 PM
^Thank you very much. I think though, that that is the wrong file. I sent 3 of the same one, each more updated. The change is barely noticible, but if mine would be used for anything, I'd need to send in my more updated version, as it is more refined. It's been done for 2 days, so it qualifies for the contest. It basically shows a better view of the fading effect.

Ok, this is weird, but PKIDelirium said he voted for my t-shirt but the count didn't go up...Is something wrong with the poll because when I checked on it earlier mine and Meowcoasters both had 4 votes and were tied for 1st place and Donald said he voted for mine but the count didn't go up.

Graham
02-16-2005, 10:14 PM
There inst anything wrong with the poll... PKIDelerium did in fact vote for your shirt.

Dan G
02-16-2005, 10:18 PM
I was just curious because he did tell me he voted for me, but I could have sworn it was at 4 votes already when I checked the thing earlier, and when he voted for me it didn't change. I guess in fact it was tied 3-3 than earlier in the day and not 4-4. No problem.

Exactly how long do you think it's going to be before the shirt(s) pop up in the store and the winners can get their copy. I'm just curious because I can't wait to get my hands on mine. I was just curious when the prizes were going through.

It's also worth mentioning that clicking on some of the items in the existing store on ThrillNetwork but not on Cafepress leads to Cafepress's "Item Not Found" page, which should probably be fixed before a bunch of people go over there to buy the new shirts.

Yay I sent in my design. Not much of a design but it's worth a try. "What's wrong with Canada?" ;)

Alex Westerman

All the winning designs are availible now in the store. And Winners prizes should be sent out this weekend.

Thanks!

Ok, it's been almost two weeks now from the time Alex supposedly sent out the prizes and me or Meowcoaster still haven't gotten our prizes yet. I've been trying to keep up with it with Alex, but he hasn't answered any of my PMs or email that I have sent him this week. I've just been trying to find some information out like if he's sent the prizes yet and when I should expect to get them. I don't want to sound like a nag, but I've been waiting since the 24th to get my prizes. I haven't even gotten my Amazon.com thing which you don't even have to ship to me and can send right to my email. If any other moderator can explain to me what's going on that'd be very great. Because right now I'm not really worried about the t-shirt stuff because I know that takes awhile to receive from cafepress, but I'm more worried about my money for Amazon which I have been waiting to get since the contest ended. Can someone please fill me in, even if it's not Alex. I'd appreciate it.

Jerry S

Yea, I have been wondering where my prize is for the T shirt contest, but considering that it took very long to send the NL contest prizes, it doesn't surprise me. of course, I never even got my NL prize anyway.

Alex Westerman
03-18-2005, 05:40 PM
EastCoastn07 -- Sent you an email please check it.

meowcoaster1 -- You really didn't get your shirt? It was sent out.

Dan G
03-18-2005, 06:37 PM
Alex, just last night I realized that my old email was still on the site so I had to change it...If you sent it to AllTimePlaya07 @ aol.com I can't get it because I no longer have that account. But, if you sent it to KingOnDaCourt10 @ aol.com I haven't gotten it yet. If you sent the email before last night sometime, and used the link from TN it probably sent it to my other email. If so can you resend to my current email.

Sorry to nitpick. I'm in the lead now. Yay :).

Too bad the contest doesn't last for two hours. :(

It's too bad I didn't submit a design for this one...I would have had an easier chance at winning. ;)

Can someone please tell me where my t-shirt and mug are from the first contest...I've been patiently waiting for 2 months now and I have yet to receive either of them. Yeah, I received my Amazon Gift Certificate, but the shirt is also important to me.

Alex, I've emailed you countless numbers of times and have yet to receive any response or any reasoning to why the prizes I was supposed to get last month still haven't arrived. Can you please get in contact with me and tell me what's going on.

Alex Westerman
04-26-2005, 01:10 PM
Sorry. All your emails were routed to my spam folder which I only check once a month. I get 100's of emails a day.

I'll track the order from Cafepress.

Did I win the March one? I mean you never posted anything that I saw. It was 17 to something not in the double digits so I'm pretty sure I won.

Dan G
04-26-2005, 10:18 PM
Well Alex, can you just email me and tell me what's going on once you figure out...I would like to have my t-shirt soon seeing how I'm planning on wearing it to Geauga Lake when I go next month. I could use a new mug right now as well.
