    So . . . in talking to Eric, the new owner that Karl's been working with, I mentioned we have a lot of great artists and illustrators here. A few days later he asked me what I thought about having a contest here, for members, for the new Chazhound logo.

    YES! How much better than to have someone who doesn't know us come up with something!

    We'll vote by poll. Since the polling only allows for ten choices, if we have more than ten, Eric asked that the mods choose ten. Those will be put up on a poll for votes and the top three will go to Eric and his partners to choose from.

    The prize for the winning design is -- aside from bragging rights and a reference and piece for your portfolio -- $100.

    I'll put up a sticky thread in the Art forum later where you can post your designs.

    For some background inspiration, here's a thread where Karl talked about Chazhound, who was the reason he started all of this in the first place <3 http://www.chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=415

    XD I'm glad someone said something. I was worried I was just the poorest person here and was the only one who thought $100 as a prize seemed amazing.

    I think if you post on someone's wall they get an email... So I guess posting on their wall a link to the thread is the closest thing we have.

    Yah, that's way too much effort.

    and they don't. Or, at least, I never have. I dont' even get an email for PMs, only when my inbox is full.

    I know how that goes. Yoshi always picks the most horrible times to decide that she wants money -.-

    Know what else we need?

    Contests for people who don't have artistic/musical abilities... You know just like luck things.

    I know when I got a message on my wall thing here on my birthday I got an email. But I think most people have that turned off.

    Whoa yeah I forgot about this..expected to see more activity on it haha.

    I meant to ask, should it be the same size as the current one? Or can it be longer/more of a banner?

    I think it's pretty open as far as size goes, but if it's a design that could be a banner and part of it as a thumbnail . . .
