you knew it was coming. it was a magical 17 days in the undisputed capital of the world should something drastic happen to NYC and paris, and hong kong is having an off year. but CLEARLY it had the worst (WORST) logo of any olympic bid or games ever designed.

you laughed when the "lisa giving bart head" joke was made for the first time because it was so true.

here is the scene: the year is 2014 (omg can you even?) brazil is so far behind the IOC strips rio of the games and gives them back to london. because london is shiftless and lazy, they just want to resue their old logo, but then someone, princess anne i guess, says no let's let gamesbids.com/forums do it, because i'm princess anne. this is what it looks like to be a gay man and have no job.

now is your chance to revenge LOCOGLOC and set the real legacy!

introducing: the OFFICIAL design a better logo for LONDON 2012 LOGO COMPETITION.

the competition is open to all. sadly, because of the tragedy of MH370, and since the requisite 180 days of islamic mourning has not fully passed, it would not be appropriate for us, the LOGOCOC logo organizing committee, to allow any bids from malaysia, as a sign of respect.

there are rules, of course.

POINTS: each submitted logo will receive 16,000 points upon submission. to balance things out, for every subsequent comment another forum member makes about your logo, you will lose 1,300 points. for every week your logo remains up, you will receive 800 points. points can also be earned through special BONUS challenges that will be awarded throughout the competition. the first bonus point competition is what is krow's favorite color and is worth 750 points.

WINNING: those with the most points at the end of the 2 week entry period will advance to a VOTING LIGHTNING round where there will be more voting than lightning. a winner will be chosen by the general public. because we are going off a points system, it is technically possible to proceed to voting without submitting a logo, although a difficult task to be sure.

COLOR PALATE: every logo that contains the color brown will receive 2,501 bonus points. however, the more... post christmas turkey turd than chocolate the better. improper shades of brown will receive only 1 bonus point.

i also forgot to mention that the person with the most points will be SAFE from elimination in the bonus round, and the person in 2nd place will receive 2 bonus votes to their total. totally meant to mention that before.

SPECS: logos must be submitted in normal format and once in lavender or aqua color scale because i am redoing my bedroom and i want one of the walls one of those colors and i need ideas (maybe teal too? teal scale will get you 3,460 points).

DESIGN: you may design any way you like using any program you like. although hand drawn logos will receive a bonus 7,200 points -- because of the inherent disadvantage. i don't want you to spend a lot of time on this but i'm sure you can do something better than london because it's easy.

ENTERING: i will enter this competition because i have a lot of ideas. i will probably hand draw my logo because the bonus points are alluring. i can also win challenges and i am the ONLY person who can think up challenges unless i designate a secondary challenge designator. right now i designate: ROB, ROLTEL, PAUL, PYROKENISIS, and OFAN97 to be able to create challenges for points for this competition. any of them can now create challenges and win them themselves so you have to be quick.

PICTURES AND GIFS: you will receive 531 points for every related funny picture and gif you post. unless it's not funny, then no points. you will lose 49.6 points for any pictures of tacos hint hint lol

NAMES: every logo needs a name. not like a stupid slogan: bringing the world together in london: one voice, one truth or something but like a NAME, like sadie or alexandra. if you name your logo sadie, i'll give you 2,300 points. lilian gets 400 points and fefe gets 2,301 points. one name per entry, so no like 30 sadies because sadie is a special name and should not be over used. i may give more points if i like your name more.

POINTS II: points are subject to inflation or deflation based on the popularity of this competition. for every extra page this thread gets to, points will be inflated by 10 percent, but if it doesn't get at least one page a day, point values will be deflated by 10 percent.

CHALLENGE NO. II: every logo comp needs a theme song. 12,000 bonus points to the theme song i pick nominated by YOU.

RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. POINT VALUES SUBJECT TO CHANGE. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. THIS COMPETITION WILL BE OPEN UNTIL THE FIRST LOW TIDE IN SYDNEY AUSTRALIA ON THE NEXT NORTHERN HEMISPHERE HALF MOON. IF I KEEP IT OPEN LONGER EVERYONE GETS 2,900 BONUS POINTS. BY POSTING IN THIS THREAD YOU ARE ENTERING THIS COMPETITION AND I WILL GIVE YOU 511 FREE BONUS POINTS. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFER TO ANYONE IN THIS COMP AS ESCANDALO MONTANA. THIS THREAD AND COMP WILL BE OUTRAGEOUS, HILARIOUS, SHAMELESS, AND I PROMISE GRATUITOUS NUDITY (404 POINTS FOR HAND DRAWN TASTEFUL NUDITY). I WILL UPDATE THE LEADERBOARD OBSESSIVELY AND BUMP SHAMELESSLY. THIS COMPETITION OPERATES ON MOUNTAIN STANDARD TIME.

i want us all to have a lot of FUN here. so let's laugh and not take ourselves too seriously but if you do take yourself too seriously i will give you 1,100 points, so you have to play it careful you know?

also, 1,452 points for every typo you point out in this thread (capital letters don't count, -3,000 points if you suggest that). OH AND YOU CAN HAVE NEGATIVE POINTS!

LEADERBOARD

tnmp - 8594

athensfan - 4771

lord d - 3065

jmarksnow - 2874

tony e - 2568

mr.bern - 2141

paul - 1374

ofan97 - 674

krow - 674 points

rob- 314

OH thatsnotmypuppy can also do challenges & points, duh. please APPLY THRU ME FOR PERMISSION TO DO CHALLENGES. I CAN NOT HAVE EVERYONE DOING CHALLENGES BECAUSE THAT DEFEATS EVERYTHING AND I AM A GOOD ORGANIZER.

PS: 201 points to the fourth responder in this thread too and all responses that end in 4 (14, 24). TODAY IS THE 24TH THAT IS WHY I AM DOING THIS.

PS if someone wants to double check my math i can give them like 1,030 points or something

PPS that whole thing about pricness anne was supposed to mean that she's like a gay man and has no job. i don't know if you got that or why i thought that was an amusing thing to say. frankly, it was a little offensive.

Krow, I believe the spelling should be "color palette" or "soft palate" depending on your intention. Based on context, I'm going with the former.

Also, I think you meant to write "reuse" rather than "resue" in the second paragraph.

Counting two typos spotted so far....

Our Logo is alright as it is. Anyway, London is the Capital of the World IMO. I can't lie, I'm probably being Bias.

New York ranks higher as a global city and is the largest city in the most powerful country. United Nations, etc. I think they take the cake on that one.

Athensfan wins 201 points as 4th responder.

Meanwhile, not a gif but slightly funnier than Tom:

and in case that gives you a message saying "Not available in your country", here is a funnier gif:

Global Cities Index

In 2008, the American journal Foreign Policy, in conjunction with the Chicago-based consulting firm A.T. Kearney and the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, published a ranking of global cities, based on consultation with Saskia Sassen, Witold Rybczynski, and others. Foreign Policy noted that "the world’s biggest, most interconnected cities help set global agendas, weather transnational dangers, and serve as the hubs of global integration. They are the engines of growth for their countries and the gateways to the resources of their regions." The ranking was updated in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

Rank 2014

2 11px-Steady2.svg.png 23px-Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg.png London 58.1

Global Economic Power Index[15][16]

In 2012, the first Global Economic Power Index, a "survey of the surveys" written by Richard Florida, was published by The Atlantic (to be differentiated from a namesake list[17]published by the Martin Prosperity Institute), with cities ranked according to criteria reflecting their presence on similar lists as published by other entities:

1 23px-Flag_of_the_United_States.svg.png New York City 48

2 23px-Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg.png London 43

The Wealth Report[19]

"The Wealth Report" (a global perspective on prime property and wealth) is made by the London based estate agent Knight Frank LLP together with the Citi Private Bank. The report includes a "Global City Survey", evaluating which cities are considered the most important to the world’s HNWIs (high-net-worth individuals, having over $25million of investable assets). For the Global City Survey, Citi Private Bank’s wealth advisors, and Knight Frank’s luxury property specialists were asked to name the cities that they felt were the most important to HNWIs, in regard to: "economic activity", "political power", "knowledge and influence" and "quality of life".

Overall rank City Economic activity Political power Quality of life Knowledge & influence

Global City Competitiveness Index[20]

In 2012, the Economist Intelligence Unit (The Economist Group), ranked the competitiveness of global cities according to their demonstrated ability to attract capital, businesses, talent and visitors.

1 23px-Flag_of_the_United_States.svg.png New York City 71.4

2 23px-Flag_of_the_United_Kingdom.svg.png London 70.4

London did win one -

Global Power City Index[18]

The Institute for Urban Strategies at The Mori Memorial Foundation in Tokyo issued a comprehensive study of global cities in 2013. The ranking is based on six overall categories, "Economy", "Research & Development", "Cultural Interaction", "Livability", "Environment", and "Accessibility", with 70 individual indicators among them. This Japanese ranking also breaks down top ten world cities ranked in subjective categories such as "manager, researcher, artist, visitor and resident."

(by BABY of course I mean no offence to any actual babies who may be posting incessantly about London or Baton Rouge or themselves or how immature everyone is or oldies or how amazing Frankie and June are or how no news is great news or how SORRY THEY ARE ALL THE TIME FOR BEING SORRY or how much they like cute stadiums or how offended they are by having fun.

I'm working on my logo....and I'm sure krows favorite color is orange even if he dosn't know it yet.

New York isn't even the captial of America :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Leave it to the UK to not make their own capital region/city. We did and made Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory, where Melbourne was only the capital for several years. I guess it's the convenience of having a dedicated capital city but also just another place to make fun of. You wouldn't trash talk your own city if it were capital now would you?

Alright. I think this is where we draw the line folks.

I provided an opinion on why I think New York City is the world's capital. At no point in your reply did you use a personal pronoun. You made it seem like a fact that London is the world's capital. There is no definite answer to this debate. There are varying opinions, and surely people from Paris, Hong Kong etc. would like to have a say in this. If you want to have a mature debate about this, let's have one. I presented a few solid reasons for my case. TNMP just posted a few more. You have yet to back up your claim at all. I'm sure if you weren't so god damn near sighted and blinded by your own nationalistic opinions, I wouldn't have to go on this rant, and you'd be able to provide a little substance to this argument on what the world's capital is.

I'm sick of the "rah rah England" BS. If the London Olympics had six terrorist attacks, 30 athletes kidnapped and the entire subway system broke down, you'd still call it the best Olympics ever because you're immature and naive and you think London and England run the whole god damn world. It's one thing to be patriotic, but you're posts on here tell a whole different story. In Sir Rols polls (hey that rhymes, lol) you voted for London for everything. Hell, I'm surprised you didn't vote for them in the Winter Olympic categories. You didn't even bother to open you're mind and show a little appreciation and respect for the achievements and designs of other Olympics. London put on a great Olympics, but please don't tell my that you think the logo is the best ever. You're certainly in the minority on that one.

I know I speak for everyone on here when I say all this. I've been here for nearly two years and look how pissed off I am. I can't imagine how rattled the long time, well-respected posters are that they have to deal with this BS all of a sudden. Sure, my first posts were stupid too, and I was a dumb newbie once. But you have yet to change your ways and its angering everyone here. This site is dying a slow death now because of you.

I don't care if people disagree with what I've just said. It's my opinion and I've had enough with you, Tony. If it's too agressive, then the mod can suspend me. Whatever.

And I apologize to krow for hijacking his logo contest. You can get back at me with endless Canada jokes if you want.

How is it all my fault that this site is 'Dying as slow painful death'? Not my words by the way. Also, people have pointed out how I have calmed down and tried and persevered. For starters, I can back up that claim by naming Members that have said this:

Rob.

Sir Rols.

Athensfan.

Yoshi.

Scotguy.

So, I think it's completely out of order to put all the blame on the Newbies, especially on me. Sorry Krow, for the off topic. I won't be commenting anymore on this thread. Thank You.

as much as i disagree with you because i was born and raised in QUEENS NEW YORK CITY and am not being bias and wish to ban you from my comp, i am forced to award you not only the 511 entry points but also 1,100 points for taking yourself too seriously.

points have to be inflated 10 percent (party like it's 1,999 bonus points to anyone who can tell me how to inflate a column of numbers in excel easily). LEADERBOARD UPDATED although i'm distressed to see few logos in this thread, i realize we're only at waning crescent moon here in the N. hem. so there's time to win points.

PS: orange is not my favorite color but i gave paul the points anyway. the next challenge is to agree with the following statement: new york city is the capital of the world, and is worth 666 points. failure to agree may result in loss of points.

also i am picking NEW YORK NEW YORK BY FRANK SINATRA as the official theme song of this london logo comp, but i am making HELLO KITTY BY AVRIL the backup theme song so puppy gets some points.

i guess we could disagree on that, just like one could conceivably disagree on whether the earth was round or not, although one argument is crazy and the other is sound logic.

Leave it to the UK to not make their own capital region/city.

Around AD 50, the Imperial authorities did make it- before then, Britannia was a bunch of separate states, with their own capitals, and there was nothing of note around London and Westminster.

All the above seems totally fair and reasonable to me,

i guess we could disagree on that, just like one could conceivably disagree on whether the earth was round or not, although one argument is crazy and the other is sound logic.

Going by the order of clauses, do you mean that "one argument" = "round" and "the other" ="not"?

New York is so amazing we don't need to have our capital there in order for it to draw attention

Also for the sake of the challenge: NYC is the best, most amazing city on the planet, it's why the UN chose us over every other World City, in addition NYC is too big for the Olympics, there literally is no place to build anything. I'd like to see your silly London beat that!

Krow, is it too late for me to join?

No one will change my mind. London is the best, hence why we beat you for the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Well actually due to the magnetic field of the moon and sun the Earth is more like a sideways oval.
