  1. I was over at Skyscrapercity to see the anti-wokists’ response to the Paris pictograms and came across the diagram at the top here. It struck me as perfect to compare the evolution of pictograms over the years since 1964, and that we haven’t done one of these polls for a while. I don’t think we’ve done pictograms before. Vote and comment away!
  2. Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games will kick off Games Volunteer Programme registration from 26 September 2018 until December 2018. https://tokyo2020.org/en/news/notice/20180912-01.html

  4. A bit saddened by this, I think a few of here will be, but it does look like the tide may be turning against developing country bids within the IOC. Those calculations of South Africa 2032 may need some revising.
  5. Dear All, I am writing a dissertation about Olympic Games 2012. Please help me with the research and complete below survey. Many thanks to all participants. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/9ZBC37P
  6. Interesting article for debate. better start revisiting all those lists of "the next 100 years of host cities".
  7. Okay, as suggested by alphamale86, let's see how our expectations and opinions stand for the 2024 bidding cities. And, maybe (again as he suggested), we might over the next month replicate the IOC voting procedures and see who we come up with, So, say, in a week's time we might see how the results stand and if no city gets a simple majority for question 1, we will eliminate the lowest scorer and try a second round vote. And so on, until we get a 50 per cent plus majority for a single city. Easy, and entirely non-scientific, but we all like a poll. So which is your pick to win? And who in your heart do you want to win?
  8. Hey, forum nubie. Has anyone had experience camping at an Olympic games? maybe In London? A company called camping ninja are setting up a camp site, mainly for games makers and other workers, just wondering how the experience rates. I'm wanting to book with them but they seem to have gone cold and are unresponsive to enquires. What are people's thoughts? R
  9. Hmmmm. It's been a bit of a slow time this year on old GamesBids. Can't say I've been very active myself. But still, couldn't let the year close without the site's annual Christmas and New Year celebration of graphic talent. So, welcome ladies and gentlemen of GamesBids, site founder Rob Livingstone and IOC President Thomas Bach, to my home town of Sydney for the launch of the Eighth edition of the Official GamesBids Olympic Logo Design Comp. Okay, I guess this kick-off is a week or so earlier than usual, but I didn't want to run the risk of someone **cough... Puppy... cough** stealing the thunder. But Thanksgiving is just around the corner, December (and Christmas) is nigh, and, well, I had the time on my hands to get it going today. To introduce the theme for this year's comp, I'll hand over to Australia's own showtune chanteuse Caroline O'Connor to explain exactly what you're going to be putting your design minds to this year. Over to you Caroline.... Yep, as a tribute to the very first logo comp in the series, way back when Puppy kicked it off, and to go full circle, this year, (*almost) Anything Goes! Basically, you get to choose the cities. It's simple! Pick a city or cities. Design a logo. Post it. You can use any city at all with just one restriction - the only ones not in the mix are the ones that have already been featured, or won, a past GamesBids logo comp. So that means Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Sochi, Aomori, Dubai, Durban, Christchurch, New York City, Ostersund, Paris, Toronto, Bangkok, Melbourne and Tokyo are NOT eligible. But beyond that, let your imaginations or inclinations run wild - choose anything from Aachen to Addis Ababa or Zanzibar to Zermatt. You may want to try your hand at a previous real life host like Sydney, London or Beijing, or something totally new, like Liege or Raqqa. Let your inspiration or interests guide you. You may choose the same cities that other people have also chosen - no-one gets to "claim" a city as their own. It's always interesting to see how different people approach the same subject. Everyone is allowed two official entries - one for the Summer Games of 2028 and one for the Winter Games of 2030. That said, you can try out and post up as many logo proposals as you want - you may want to get feedback for which of your designs are most popular or even run your own mini-poll to decide which ones you will ultimately submit. But by the end of the submission period, midnight December 31 Sydney time, you must nominate only one logo for either or each of 2028 or 2030 to go forward into the voting rounds. Alternatively, you may want to submit your logo/s privately to me, via pm, so it is a surprise come the "Big Reveal" in January. Early in the New Year, all official entries will be displayed for a period of time and voting will commence soon after. The voting procedures will depend on how many entries we get. I anticipate we’ll vote on this in the traditional “IOC Host City Selection” format, but will tailor the procedure to the numbers received. More on that when the time comes. Oh... there's also going to be a special event taking place after the 2028 and 2030 comps wrap up. Again, more on that in January. When voting starts, you will be judged on the quality of your design, not on which city will host. Your logo/s can either be absolutely abstract or have significance for your host city. With your submission include a brief explanation on what the logo means and how it would symbolise a Games in your city. You may also want to show us how it looks in various templates or situations, like posters, banners, apps, cups, t-shirts and keyrings. The Olympic rings are to be used in your designs - this is for a host city, not a bid city. As usual, I will rule on any disputes. As always, just remember, this is all meant to be fun. Try to keep the spirit friendly. Hopefully this will spark up some action on the board. I'll be keeping a close eye on proceedings, but otherwise will try and keep hands-off until the polling stages. ​Have fun, good luck, and dazzle us with your talent everyone!
