  1. How exactly are you going to choose the member that is removed from the group(s) with the least points. Do you just choose a competitor you like the least, does the team goose l choose who it wants to through under the bus. It's not like you know who did the least/worst work if it's all done in private between a team.

    I really think the team concept is flawed, it's just doesn't work over the internet. I do like the staggered stages of entry process though. That (at least at first glance) makes it look a lot easier for the inexperienced game a bid a book a contestant, me. Let's see what the GB veterans make of this.

    Good luck. :)

    *ignore the "goose I". Phone keyboard spasm.

  2. Yes he will most likely be. Late entries either on the day or asking for an extension has been used in the past as a way to hype up the entry, make less time to compare with the others, get the design shown just as voting starts which should gather votes and most possible win. It has been used by Paul in the past in the logo comp and he has went on to win submitting after the deadline has passed.

    If Af does it, As will prob do it as well

    I wouldn't be OK with them extending the deadline, certainly not for each other.

    Guys, just so you know, I (and I'm sure many others here) would definitely loose confidence in you two being twins if you pulled something like this.

  3. It depends how you view the logo, if you seriously view it as setting the paralympians on fire you have issues. To me the Paralympic logo looks like a cauldron that's why I used it. If the head of this competition tells me I have to. In fact were not making logo's here, but a torch. I made the torch so calm down and stop calling foul.

    Great work. Heck if you participate I will vote for you.

    Issues? It's exactly the same as lighting a flag to fire. It means you disaprove-of/hate that contry. you can't just set fire to something and call it a torch relay logo. If we are not designing logos then remove it.

  4. Look if you keep criticizing other peoples work or designs or edits I'm telling you now that you will not win. Why? Because it makes you look like a jerk, no one want's to vote for a jerk.

    Calm down, I'm stating the facts. You should really reconsider the logo though, you cant just set fire to the paralympic logo and call it a torch relay logo. It's both insulting and unoriginal.

    here is my sketches... i will post final desing soon,if no objection..

    Amazing, wish I could draw like that. =) Can't wait to see your final design, I don't object to you entering.

  5. Here is my entry:

    torch.png

    The design of this torch has been inspired by the curved shapes of the logos. The colours represent the green and yellow of Brazil, whilst still maintaining a more sleek design.

    The green curved part represent a leaf and the nature of Brazil

    I will post more pics shortly, but just wanted to get the entry in.

    At least in my view it shows the Olympic logo next to the lit torch and the paralympic logo next to the unlit torch. That's a bit harsh. Lol. :) (Just saying, we're keeping this friendly.)

  6. Okay here goes. Again please tell me if these images are too big or something.

    This is my torch from three angles, lit and not lit

    It is based on the moving, linked, human figures of the Rio 2016 logo. It is meant to look like the three arms holding up the flame. It is completely transparent so you can see the gas cannister and gas tubes inside. each arm is lit up from the inside with LED's of the three logo colours. The transparency symbolises the games being completely transparent. The top of the torch that contains the flame and other parts of that run the torch is a metallic black to avoid black markings (seen at the end of Vancouvers and Sochis torches) on the torch during use.

    And this is the Olympic Torch Relay Logo with obvious links to the torch.

    I hope you enjoy my torch. It is now officially entered (unless the image sizes are wrong then get in touch with me) :)


    Sorry lets see if this works.

  7. What Is an Internet 'Troll'?

    An internet 'troll' is an abusive or obnoxious user who uses shock value to promote arguments and disharmony in online communities. Named after the wicked troll creatures of children's tales, an internet troll is someone who stirs up drama and abuses their online anonymity by purposely sowing hatred, bigotry, racism, mysogyny, or just simple bickering between others. Trolls like a big audience, so they frequent blog sites, news sites, discussion forums, and game chat. Trolls thrive in any environment where they are allowed to make public comments.

    At the lighter end of the troll spectrum, trolls can be personal friends who like to goad and joke with their buddies online. In this case, 'trolling' will mean 'stop hassling me, or I won't invite you to my birthday party'.

    At the harsher end of the troll spectrum, trolls are cruel and malicious users who want to set an online community on fire with hate and discord.

    The Sad Truths of Internet Trolls:

    Trolls are immune to criticism and logical arguments. True trolls cannot be reasoned with, regardless of how sound your logical argument is.

    Trolls do not feel remorse like you and me. They have sociopathic tendencies, and accordingly, they delight in other people having hurt feelings.

    Trolls consider themselves separate from the social order.

    Trolls do not abide by etiquette or the rules of common courtesy.

    Trolls consider themselves above social responsibility.

    Trolls gain energy by you insulting them.

    Trolls gain energy when you get angry.

    The only way to deal with a troll is to ignore him, or take away his ability to post online.

    How Should I Deal With Internet Trolls?

    You cannot win with a troll. Publicly retaliating against them just fuels their childish need for attention. There are only 3 reliable ways to deal with trolls, all of which focus on removing their audience, removing their power, and depriving them of the attention they seek.

    1. For a casual or emergent troll: completely ignore the person's postings. While it is difficult formost users to to let a troll have the last word, this tactic successfully takes the wind out of a casual troll's sails.

    2. For repeating troll offenders: report them to the moderators of the system. If enough people report the toll, this will often prompt the moderators to take action.

    3. Have the moderators take away the troll's ability to post online. This will commonly mean that the troll is kicked from the system, or blocked by IP address. Even better is when the troll is allowed to continue posting, but unbeknownst to him: all of his postings are deleted from everyone else's view. This will lure the troll into wasting his efforts while still feeling proud of his childish antics. This moderator move is sometimes called 'muting' or 'bonzo-ing' the offender.

    That was a waste of time if you wrote that out yourself. Unless you copied it of course.
