Here's mine. A work in progress...

The white portions are meant to be transparent, and the blue portions are meant to be semi-transparent, but alas, this chaepo image hosting site iI used doesn't support transparency (and my website's FTP is down, just my luck).

This one has a little hidden meaning to it, which is not hard to pick up on once you've visited the age.

Maybe I can get feedback on my execution of that concept... :)


Dude: get Photobucket. It's free, and it doesn't try to set half a dozen cookies on your browser every time an image hosted there is viewed... :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

Nice design Earthwiz!


The one thing that I think CYAN would not appreciate is having (c) Earthwizard on it. IIRC, apon submitting it, it becomes property of Cyan.

Well, they didn't say anything, so i don't guess at what they might think. If they would be more specific in their wording then yes I'd be glad to comply, but until then it is my own image afterall.... 8)

And it is the DRC Council, not Cyan that set the guidelines.... :)

Their guidelines only state...

Please use the following guidelines:

Image Size - 1024 by 1024, 72 DPI
Include your Explorer Name

P.S. - Even if Cyan is the big boy in the background of it all... :roll:

No, their legal policy is that if they use your submission, they gain all rights to it.

In other words, even though you created it, if it wins, it won't be yours anymore.

Yes, this may all be true, but until they explicitly state it in the guidelines I wll follow what I always have... maybe, you have more knowledge than I, but I can only go by what my eyes see... :wink:

And, yes, if they ask me to do this as a prerequisite I'll gladly comply... :lol:

It's not their job to inform you about their legal policy. It's yours to find out. :wink:

Now we have a problem. In USA it's possible and common to sign over the rights in intellectual property. In Europe - especially Germany - it is NOT possible. There is no way I can sign over my intellectual property to Cyan even if I *want* to do it. A paragraph in a contract stating a sign over can render the complete contract illegal and void.

@The Noble Robot

Very nice work there. I like the textures and style, and I see the [spoiler]shape of the age in it. [/spoiler]

one thing, what is the blue stuff surrounding the edge? I take it this thing will have an irregular shape, with a hole in the middle.

oh, and don't worry about the 24-bit transparency showing up on the site.. it's not really going to be noticeable. I'm sure cyan will appreciate it in the full image though.

Maybe there's some kind of unlimited license. Why would you not be able to sign it over? :?

You aren't signing a contract, so that might be something, but then maybe it could be a Memorandum of Understanding, which is not legally binding but basically you affirming you won't act like you have rights to the image.

Earthwizard, before you submit it, I need to tell you that you didn't fix the D'ni text correctly. You ended up writing [e][dh][e][r][th][s][o][g][ah][l]. It needs to be [e][d][e][r] [ts][o][g][ah][l].

To write this in the D'ni font, copy the following line directly into D'ni font:


eDer xogal

I can give Cyan an unlimited license to use my work in all their products but I cannot sign over my intellectual property to Cyan. It's still my own work but they can use it for free.

Signing over the IP means that the new owner of the IP have all rights and I'm not allowed to use my work in any way. For example I wouldn't be allowed to wear a T-Shirt with a printout of my image or I wouldn't be allowed to put the image on my homepage without getting explicit authorization from the new owner of the IP.

If I give an unlimited license to Cyan they can use the image for everything but I can still use the image, too. I would be allowed to sell it or upload it or give it to other people.

Well, I don't quite understand how it works, but there's obviously SOME provision that allows them to say the following (copied from the TOS):

Quote:
Creative Submissions/Communications. Licensors do not accept or
consider creative ideas, suggestions or materials other than
those Licensors have specifically requested via the Game or
otherwise. This is to avoid the possibility of future
misunderstandings when projects independently developed by
Licensors or their agents might seem to others to be similar to
their own creative ideas, suggestions or materials. If you do
send us or post any creative materials, suggestions, ideas,
notes, drawings, concepts, including, without limitation, ideas
or descriptions of how the Game, plot, or characters could be
enhanced or further developed, (collectively, the "Information"),
the Information shall be deemed, and shall remain the property of
Licensors
. None of the Information shall be subject to any
obligation on the part of Licensors and Licensors shall not be
liable for any use or disclosure of any Information. By sending
or posting Information, you hereby grant Licensors a perpetual,
irrevocable, nonexclusive right to use such Information in all
media now known or hereafter devised throughout the universe and
you agree that Licensors shall be entitled to unrestricted use of
the Information for any purpose whatsoever, commercial or
otherwise, without compensation to you or any other individuals
or entities involved with the creation of such Information.
