A quick question can an entry be changed all together, I normally enter quite quickly and then regret it as I normally come up with a better idea as is the case here. The opposite happened in the olympic SOTW one though, I held back only for yellowman to enter his which was very similar to what I was working on, so rather than people thinking I copied it I had to start fresh :(

Entries can be totally changed. Just remember to edit your original entry so's I don't get confused ... you know it doesn't take much !

IMO I don't agree with this, once an entry has been submitted, that should be that. I don't have an issue with entrants changing the size of an entry or colour of a background (eg - cosmetic modifications - as I now allow in SOTW comp) but if your going to allow people to replace their entry completely then it's basically a free for all for people to put in a "placeholder" see what others are entering and then make a "new one" to out do the other one.

But as I say this is just my opinion and not my comp :)

Objection noted NN

Entries should be allowed to be changed as we're all after the same thing - i.e. seeing what we can do to connect our brains to show what PDN can produce.

I don't care who wins, I just like seeing people's interpretation of the brief.

The Logo Challenge runs for 2 weeks ... a lot can change/click in someone's mind or the publishing of a new tutorial/plugin that could lend itself to a particular theme

I think this is particularly fair to the newer members entering the Challenge as they're learning at bigger leaps and bounds.

Also I like to think we're a trustworthy bunch here, but on the other hand ... if anyone does start extracting the urine then I will step in and wield the disqual' option.

Keeping bums on seats is the goal ...

I wasn't aware that changing was permissible until it was mentioned here, and always assumed that once posted that was it. I also agree w/Welsh on this about permitting it, but for a somewhat different reason. Since there is a deadline, I think that (essentially) anything should go up until that time for a participant. Now however, it somebody removed a piece and failed to meet the deadline, then they fault and shouldn't be permitted to submit (unless that deadline has been extended).

Just my humble opinion.

2 good points by Jim' ... especially the bit about removing an image and then 'not delivering'

I trust the voters

Edit. Plus it keeps everyone on their toes ...

Very true about it running for two weeks, but that means there is no rush to post an entry, make two or three logo/banners and pick the one your most proud of.

The sad thing is, there is only the same faces entering the comp (and my SOTW comp) I would love to see more people involved and I agree that keeping bums on seats is the goal :) I also don't care who wins any comp, it's just for fun at the end of the day.

I'm not knocking the comp or the running of it, your doing a great job here ;) I just think allowing a completely new entry to be added is not right.

I think to replace an entry with another one is not a good idea,

but maybe two entries are allowed per person, will solve the problem? As long as we don't have enough participants.

I am just like to see minners new entry :)

@Yellowman, now I feel pressured ;) I have actually got 3 more entries but I am gonna leave it till right near the end and decide which of them will be THE ONE

My 2 pennies on changing entries is that it should be allowed. Its all very well saying leave it till the last minute but if we all did that the comps would feel dead until that last moment when everybody enters.

Hahahahaha. New Rule: Post placeholder, then post actual entry the day before deadline. Oh, the confusion!

I'm of the once it's posted that's that opinion.

I usually wait till the last week to post. By then I do have several to choose from. Or I'm tired of piddling with it. My excuse is...

When a new competition is posted I have a problem, sometimes, narrowing the scope of what is to be expected. I went so far, in this comp, as to add the .ico file-type to my PDN and to look up sizes for icons. Hmm, decided that's going to far. Guess I could of asked.

I can't say that I don't care who wins; competition is what drives creativity.

First time I've edited an image after posting. :/

Edit: Added emote.

2nd Edit: I suppose a little touch-up wouldn't matter. For some reason my images have a different look to them after posting and I then notice stuff that I don't like.

Hi all,

I would like to make an entry, but I keep getting an error message saying "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community." I have tried .Jpeg amd .Png. Can someone tell me what's wrong. I am posting from my own website.

Hi Ron - welcome to the forum!

Your best bet is to host your image elsewhere on the internet (your own website or an image host like ImageShack or Photobucket). Then just post the link here.

Here's a guide to hosting images and posting links: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/12193-how-to-use-images-in-your-posts-signatures-and-avatars/

Looking forward to your entry!

I've been looking at/thinking about the above discussion in readiness for Challenge #6

We all see things differently. But I stick by thinking it's acceptable to change your entry up to closing day.

To me all the competitions here are about what PDN and the user can do together. I'd much rather see an image that a Poster is happy with

... rather than something they wished they hadn't bothered with. The one they exchange to could be a real mind-blower

The nitty gritty is that I won't change my mindset and hope you'll all keep your bums on seats for further challenges because you're valued in the competition

Maybe the problem is posting from your own website. Try uploading the image to Photobucket or ImageShack & then upload it.
