  1. And welcome back everyone for the Quarter Finals of the GamesBids Olympic Logo Winners' Cup! And we've sure got some mouthwatering quarter finals lined up! Thanks for everyone that voted - and sorry if I've had to spam to get people involved - just as I've mentioned elsewhere, without status updates, it's hard to promote these comps now. And it's about time Blake contributed something useful to the board. Anyway, in the pool round we had a mix of clear results and a few draws, where I've (and I must say, it's for the first time ever in these comps) had to cast the deciding votes/take the penalty kicks. My decisions were based on a number of factors - my pure aesthetic preferences, evening out some of the finalists who got through and an eye to what sort of match-ups they would produce in these quarter final rounds. For these Quarter Finals - from Groups B and D. The results were: Group B: Buenos Aires - clear winner with 9 votes (the highest score of any logo in the pool stage). Dubai, runner up with 6 votes (including one from me - that was a tough call - I really liked Paul's Durban one. But I figured Paul already had two logos through, so in the interests of diversity I went with Barrack's Dubai). Durban (5) and Ostersund (1) were eliminated. Group D: Oslo - winner from a tie-break on 7 votes (again, a tough choice, based on the looks and what the match-up for the next round would be). Melbourne - runner up with 6 votes. Bangkok (3) and New York City (2) were eliminated. NYC's exit was the big shock of the Pool stage to me! I really had it twigged at the start as one of the contenders for top dog - it's one of my favourites of all time. Still, shows how much a judge of logo tastes I am! Which sets us up with two intriguing Quarter Finals. QF3 is our second match-ups in the QF round of the two heavyweights - Paul and aismanggo. They've always been big rivals in terms of the votes in these comps, and I thought it's sorta fitting for me that they come up against each other twice again. Paul's Buenos Aires takes on aismanggo's Melbourne in a yet another tough and classic round to see who will get through. Good luck to both! I sorta hope you each get one through, but that's for the voters to decide. QF4 is whoohooitsme83 versus Barrack. The battle of two, well I won't say outsiders but they are both single comp winners. Again, I matched these two together by my penalty kick - I liked the idea of the two versus each other. So its Woohoo's Oslo versus Barrack's Dubai. Good luck to both! Okay, rules: 1) It's one vote per person, per Quarter Final. You can vote in a both matches, or only one, as you wish. 2) You have a week to vote - voting in this stage is open until Wednesday December 14. 3) The winning logo in each quarter final at the close will progress to the next round - the Semi-Finals. 4) If there is a tie between any 2 logos in any match, I reserve a casting vote/penalty kick. I will not vote in the regular voting time, & if I do need to use a casting vote, I will base it first on my own subjective opinion. At the end of this Quarter Final round, the Semi-Finals will be arranged according to the draw diagram from which the two surviving finalists will be chosen for the Grand Final which should culminate on December 31, just before submissions close in our regular logo comp (Kathmandu 2030 and Hamburg 2032/Havana 2032). You can vote for yourself if you want to. They're all great logos battling it out now - may the best of them now reign over the rest. Good luck to all! And one last thing - if you're looking at these and inspired - please get out your graphics packages and make sure you're in this year's comp. Go to this thread to enter!
  2. You can never get too much of Conchita, can you? (Though I have to admit that, believe it or not, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard or seen that song… perfect Eurovision, or Logo Comp, fodder). Ladies and Gentlemen, Mesdames et Monsieurs, Damen und Herren, Distinguished Guests, and ofan, Welcome back to Salzburg. It’s been a long and tumultuous (though surprisingly not as tumultuous as some past years) road to whittle down our astounding 45 starting entries one victorious design. The time has come to see which of our entries has Risen Like a Phoenix to take the mantle of GamesBids Winter Logo Champion for this year. To make the official announcement, the honours go to Lord Sebastian Coe, who has agreed to stand in for Herr Bach who is taking a winter ski break in Sochi before joining with us again for Tokyo 2020 announcement. Anyway, Seb? Could you and Arnie take up your places to introduce the new 2022 Winter Olympics Host and Logo Comp winner. Arnie, have you got your lighter ready? The winner is… aismanggo’s Melbourne! So aismanggo defends his Winter crown and the southern hemisphere gets its first Winter Olympics. Congratulations aismanggo, you survived a tough campaign after a really hot start. Really a lot closer than many of us thought just a few rounds ago. A round of applause, and a silver medal, to barrack who came close to celebrating a fairytale comeback after almost missing the final rounds. So close! I see LatinX/TC is one of the first over to shake Prime Minister Abbott’s, uh, hand, to congratulate him on Australia’s highly-deserved Winter games win. Final results were: Borjomi (barrack) - 11 votes Melbourne (aismanggo) - 15 votes Taking into account krow’s re-allocated vote, it becomes: Borjomi (barrack) - 12 votes Melbourne (aismanggo) - 14 votes There’s dumplings and strudel for all to celebrate. Take it easy on the cream krow, too much isn’t good for your stomach. We don’t want another mid-ceremony red carpet accident. We’re going to take a short break before we move onto the summer logo vote. I’m going away for a few days, and won’t be back till Sunday evening. We’ll gather back in the vicinity of Japan in 3 days where many of our battle weary logo warriors face off again in Operation Olympic. Come heavily armed.
  3. And yet another nail-biting round has closed with only two points separating all three contenders and the top two tied. This sets the scene for a knife-edge head-to-head fight for the final crown. The final results were: Barcelona (Danny) - 9 points Borjomi (barrack) - 11 votes Melbourne (aismanggo) - 11 points All votes cast were valid. We say goodbye to Danny's Barcelona. It's always tough come the final stages and get so close. Sad to see this one go Danny, but you get the Bronze Medal and I know you have a hot contender for Tokyo. So now we go to the decider, with barrack and aismanggo both going for their second Logo Comp title. Who'll take the Gold? Will I finally need to cast a tiebreak vote? We'll know this time tomorrow. Rules for this round: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Friday January 9, Sydney time (8pm Jan 8 GMT). The entry at the close of poll with an absolute majority will be declared the winner. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY vote for their own logos. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this round unless a tie-break vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. Good luck to to both barrack and aismanggo. See you back in Salzburg tomorrow.
  4. Phew, that last round was close. With 30 members voting, there was only a point separating the top three. Unfortunately, we now see Paul's Harbin design drop out - Bye Bye Burr! Thanks for entering Paul, great to see you back in the arena and looking forward to see how your Tokyo logo fares in the 2020 section of the comp. The final results were: Barcelona (Danny) - 8 points Borjomi (barrack) - 8 votes Harbin (Paul) - 5 votes Melbourne (aismanggo) - 9 points All votes cast were valid. So aismanggo's Melbourne keeps its lead from every round, but that lead has dramatically narrowed. This is not turning into the Melbourne cakewalk many expected after the first few rounds. Of the final three, I think anyone can, and deserves, to win. Let's get closer to seeing who that will be. Okay, rules for this round: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Thursday January 8, Sydney time (8pm Jan 7 GMT). Voting will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY now vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds, unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. Good luck to all our remaining entrants!
  5. Well, in just two rounds weve managed to get 45 entries down to a final four - it may not have been pretty, but there was always going to be carnage to get to this point. Im sad to see some of these go - well done to all of you, thanks and commiserations. We had a strong voting turnout of 32 members )one of them late - see below - I've accepted it at organiser's discretion) having their say. For the first time ever, weve now gone three rounds without me needing to discount anyones votes - not even the usual January ring-ins tried it on again this year. The results were: A (Anthony) - 4 B (woohooitsme83) - 6 C (DannyelBrazil) - 13 D (Mr Bernham)- 7 E (barrack) - 10 (with 1 late vote to get it into the final) F (Cody 1985) - 3 G (Paul) - 10 H (barrack) - 7 I (woohooitsme83) - 4 J (nzl) - 5 K (aismanggo) - 16 L (Anthony) - 7 C, G and K make it through. So that leaves us with four entries from four previous winners representing four different cities. aismanggos Melbourne design maintains the lead its had in all rounds so far. Barrack's Borjomi, Dannys Barcelona and Pauls Harbin are the ones seeing if they can change that come the end. Okay, down to business. The rules for this stage are: This voting round will be open for (approximately) 24 hours - it will close after 7am, Wednesday January 7, Sydney time (8pm Jan 6 GMT). Voting will now be conducted in rounds until one entry has an absolute majority and is declared the winner. In this and following rounds, the logo with the lowest number of votes will be eliminated at the close of the poll. Vote in the poll for your favourite logo. You have ONE vote, so make it count. Your vote is public and can be seen by all. Entrants MAY now vote for their own logo if they wish. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. I will not vote in this, or any subsequent rounds, unless a tie-breaker vote is needed. Be fair and sportsmanlike, this is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. Will we decide it all in the next 24 hours, or will we have another head-to-head duel for the final crown. Well know this time tomorrow. Good luck to all three of our remaining competitors. I've restarted this to make the poll fair. Phandrosis, runningrings, Rob, JMarkSnow and CAF may vote again.
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIjobdArtiA Well, who else was a going to open the voting? Conchita is booked for the results announcement. And speaking of Conchita to host and guide us through the voting rounds, we have the two most famous Austrians in the entire universe, the delightful and divine Miss Conchita Wurst Wurst and the former Terminator, Governator and now Logonator, Arnold Schwarzenegger! Conchita: Wilkommen to Salzburg! Und the launch of voting for the GamesBids 2022 Vinter Olympic Games Logo Comp, Cut-und-Paste edition. Ve are just so excited to see you all here. Arnold: Ja, Conchita and I are truly pumped for der action now, as you the voters ponder the 45 finalists shown above representing the magnificent seven bidding cities, und decide who are the expendables and who haff the right stuff to become our final Dirty Dozen. Conchita: Ve vill be with you every step of the way, as ziss year, because of the so many, many fine und outstanding entries, und to start celebrations off ziss years Eurovision in Austria, ve are inviting you to adopt the Eurovision style of voting to decide the short list. Arnold: Ja, it is exciting und truly easy, even for a girly boy to understand! To demonstrate I vill hand you back to Zir Rols to explain how it werks. Sir Rols: At close of submissions, we've got 45 entries in the for the 2022 section. In your face Bach! Forty five bidders versus your two for 2022! This includes a privately submitted entry by our reigning winter logo champion, aismanggo - Melbourne K. I also have a private Tokyo submission in hand from him which youll see, well, probably next week. We also have an alternative submission from woohooitsme83 for Harbin (Harbin D). Melbourne was the most popular subject choice with 11 entries, followed by Anchorage with 8, Barcelona and Salzburg with 7 each, then Harbin (5), Borjomi (4) and Santiago with 3. Well bloody done! I was already planning, with assistance and suggestions from Yoshi, to experiment with a Eurovision-style vote for at least one section of the comps this year. The sheer volume of entries received made that plan virtually a necessity. I was originally sceptical, I admit, going with a multi-city format - it didnt seem to work that well a few years back when we did Paris/St Petersburg and Ostersund/somewhere-else. But this years it really seemed to work in encouraging lots and lots and then more loads of entries. And from a good mix of former winning entrants and some great new talents. That number of entries is beyond the capabilities of the GamesBids poll voting format to handle anyway. And with so many good ones I think it would be almost impossible to limit the worthies to just a final five or six at this stage yet. Im sure theres at least a dozen amongst them that deserve to go on. So were going to Euro-style to decide who they are. Heres how it will work (with some cut-n-pasting from CAFs contests). Please pick your TOP TEN logos from the selection above. List them in order of preference by giving them the following points: Best logo - 12 points Second best logo - 10 points Third best logo - 8 points Fourth best logo - 7 points Fifth best logo - 6 points Sixth best logo - 5 points Seventh best logo - 4 points Eight best logo - 3 points Ninth best logo - 2 points Tenth best logo - 1 point Either post your entries either in this thread; or post your entries via PM to me for me to unveil after the close of polling. Votes are valid if cast by members of GamesBids as of December 1 2014 with a bona fide posting record. I will rule on the validity of any suspicious or disputed votes, or who constitutes a bona fide voting member. Entrants in this round may NOT vote for their own logo. I will vote in this round. This voting round will be open for (approximately) 48 hours - it will close around 9am, Sunday January 4, Sydney time (8pm Jan 3 GMT). At the end of voting, the top 12 scoring logos will go on to the final voting rounds. You may post comments or critiques of the logos and the reasons for your votes. But try to be fair and respectful. This comp is meant to be fun and the entrants all deserve RESPECT. If any contenders have any complaints or disputes, PM me and I'll rule on them. If people want to calculate and post progressive scores as we go along, feel free. But hopefully Ill have some privately posted entries to keep up the suspense come the end. I think thats it. Anything else crops up, Ill take it up on the run. Thanks and good luck to all the entrants!
