I need a new logo for the Red Alert Skin:

http://forum.outpostuniverse.net/?skinid=9

If you can make one that matches the theme and includes "Outpost Universe Forums" as the predominate text, then you could win 1000 credits. You have until Monday (the 26th) to get me your entry!

To enter, either post your image here, or email it to me: xfir[at]xfir.net

The image should be 400 by 100 and in gif format.

Please name your image with your username.

So long as your name isn't the predominate text, I'm fine with the username. But I must warn you, if its too conspicouos, I may dock you (I will be "grading" the logos persay)

The rubric will be like so:

Color Choice
Font Choice
Predominate Features
General Appearance (as in, is it really jagged)

Each member is allowed a mx of 2 submissions.

Well, if I deem it an "update" to the previous one, then I'll just replace it. Otherwise, the images have to differ more than 25%.

Due to the lack of actually reading the main posts that lists the rules, I am going to fine you 5 credits.

Yes, it should say Outpost Universe Forums.

Sorry X, If I remove the RA TechCenter^2 Forums title, and the shadow, and the faint spiral behind RA, then just replace the name, would you consider that a 25% difference?

As a note, you can put your name on the image. All submitted images become my property, however.

Question: Is that because of the ever occuring dilemma/situation im going to explain below, or is there another reason for it ?

//Story Time
Once upon a time... There was a nice comfy little forum...
Eventually an argument arose which quickly got out of hand, it resulted in several "accidents" and throwing of words... In the aftermath someone told the rest that he was "going to leave the forum..." and that he wanted everything he had brought the community to be removed...
He proceeded to clear out his account remove some posts here and there and leave a nicely written letter of goodbye (? nicely ?) When it was time to remove the nice logo he had made for the forum ( <--- important ) he noticed that it was hosted on the forum server which he did not have access to...
Argument arises again as he "demands" "HIS" logo to be removed, the forum doesn't want this and well... This guy still haunts the very same forum today after thousands of years...

That is disturbing, and i don't think that shall happen here since we are all cooperative with each other. Now how would i even begin to work on a skin like that without the software?

I say that, Zircon, because then I don't owe any royalties to the author should I use it.

Its is a simple way to prevent any legal actions. And it works.
