logo contest


False Voting Prevention

Logo contest is a great way to getting the community to choose its face. However, some measures should be taken to prevent false voting such as:

  • Registered members can vote.
  • Only Once.
  • Maybe transparent (member name visible) with optional comment.
  • Two rounds (maybe ten submissions in the second).

I think this should help the community to choose the clear winner among the submissions. bundyo 20:50, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Where do we post our entries?

...Sorry for the stupid question, maybe I didn't read it carefully enough, but where do we post our entries? jakemaheu 20:52, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

This is only a proposal yet, it will be discussed and considered first. bundyo 20:54, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Whoops... I was already finishing my 4th design (just for kicks, to see what the GIMP could do) when I refreshed the page. jakemaheu 21:00, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Contest Debate

Just so people can express their opinions on this, let me be the first to say that I would love to do this. I do, however, have some questions.

  1. Would there be any age restrictions? (Please let there not be any)
  2. Who would be coordinating this?

Conclusion: Supportjakemaheu 21:28, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

The idea is for this to be a community organized and driven contest. I'd don't see any purpose in age restrictions other than that there may be some issues with flying somebody underaged out to Germany for OSiM, this point will probably need clarification from Nokia, anyway. —GeneralAntilles 21:34, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks GA! The reason I asked is because I am 14 (the youngest IT user on ITT?) and want to enter.
I don't see any problem in entering the contest. If age is a problem with travelling then we could always find a substitute (no idea, but the showstoppers would be in the ticket purchase or the check-ins at the airport/hotel, not in Nokia's side).--qgil 21:52, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Who takes the coordination?

As a Nokia employee, I really don't want to be in the middle of the organization of this contest. Who takes it? Of course I will help out and provide Nokia's view on whatever Nokia can inform i.e. details on the prize.--qgil 21:48, 13 June 2008 (UTC)

Well, GeneralAntillies said that the idea was for it to be a community-driven contest, so I guess that would mean community-managed? jakemaheu 21:55, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
