  1. LOL - what kind of question is that even? I would suspect there'd be tons of Olympic medal winners that have dubious political beliefs or are downright criminals (or, in this case, both even). The IOC isn't going to do a thing, I'd rather the FBI did their job appropriately there. Lock them all up. Forever. Hawley, Cruz and the Trump Camorra all together, and I'm sure they'd find a place for deluded souls like Klete Keller in that prison too.

  2. Ok after some consultation (it doesn't affect our only voter so far) I think it probably would be best if at least initially, we do not allow voting for your own logo. Simply because we haven't got much traffic on the board, there's not the size of pool of non-participant voters that we may have had in previous years. If we do get a pool in this round, I might allow voting for yourself in future rounds. I'm sure you'll understand that we don't want a tie between 6 logos all on one vote, do we

  3. God no, Ukraine, I love you and your people but please, the money needs to be spent elsewhere. You're already borderline bankrupt and barely holding on economically as is. Not a good idea.

  4. Hi everyone - I used to have an account on here a while ago, but never posted, was just a lurker and lost the details. I've always meant to enter this contest as it combines two of my favourite things; the Olympics and graphic design, but I always forget about it, and end up coming on around Christmas time and have missed the entry slot. So was overjoyed to see this competition extended when I looked yesterday. I've therefore come up with this entry for the Milan Cortina 2026 competition. I hopefully will get round to doing a Brisbane one before Monday but that might not happen! Mil

  5. ANNOUNCEMENT ROYAL PROCLAMATION Greetings subjects participants, and a happy new year to you all. One has been following this contest with interest, as one does each year, and it pleases one's person to see the range of submissions already placed, despite how it looked at the beginning of the month. However, one would be pleased to see a few more, in particular for one's fellow Commonwealth friend in Brisbane. As such, it is one's wish to give some extra time for designing - one is most amused by the power of a good deadline. However one is also mindful of how interminable t

  7. Just a little announcement for anyone who wants to submit privately for a surprise - please do submit to Rols, they'll reach me that way. I've got a couple of conversations open that are important to admin, so I'd only have one spare. Sorry for not making that clear earlier

  8. Advice - you can submit your Milan logo by posting it on the thread, I look forward to seeing it. You might even encourage some others to submit, nothing like competition. And if not, you win by default lol

  12. They must keep it burning, and they should hold a symbolic ceremony on the date Tokyo 2020 should have started.

  13. 1) How can they include an Ainu-specific segment without a similar one for the Ryukyuan people, Burakumin, etc? 2) Depictions of aboriginal peoples are a no win situation. If the organizers don't include aboriginal culture they are accused of whitewashing the past and when they do they have been accused of cultural appropriation. It would be great if they could include a segment on the Ainu. But if they don't think they can do it well, then that should be OK too.

  14. I don't foresee the US going for a YOG any time in the near future. They don't 'need' it. If the YOG ever become more well-known, I could see smaller US cities wanting to bid, knowing they won't get the regular games. I could see Indianapolis being interested. A few months ago someone was talking up Austin for the Olympics - that would never happen but I could possibly see us being able to host the YOG. But the fact remains that the US is focused on the 'real' games. Only way I could see USOC putting forward a city is: 1. They feel that hosting would endear them to the IOC since it seems

  15. Got this from a korea website, a resume from MBC back in 1994 of the 1994 Asian Games opening in Hiroshima. Besides the scenes we already saw, it shows short excerpts like the mass samurai performance, kabuki and what seems to be a formation of a "Great Wave at Kanagawa" mosaic I've also found the opening ceremony of the 2001 IAAF World Championships in Athletics opening in Edmonton, Canada.
