Now with more rules!
So, if you haven't heard, we're running a little Halo: Reach emblem contest right now. If you want details, you can check them out in last week's update
. But really, this small news bite is for folks who are already planning on submitting. Candland's been powering through the entries and has a few things he'd like to clear up before you hit the send button. Bam:
"Please don’t send .zip, .rar, or other compressed archives. It can become a security concern opening these files and it creates an extra step for me. If you sent me a compressed file. I threw it away and didn’t look at it. A 256x256 .gif or .jpg should not require any compression to mail anyway.
Secondly, please send me the files directly, don’t send me hyperlinks. Again, there are security issues for unverified links. And again, it creates an extra step for me. If you sent your submission in the form of a link, I didn’t bother clicking it. Send your submission again with the images attached.
Lastly, there are apparently several people that completely misunderstood the contest and sent me their favorite Halo 3 emblem combination. While I am partial to my own
, because it looks kind of like a Recon version of Stuntmutt’s One One Seven comic character. I applaud your pride in your personal combination, but alas, it does me this much good: none."
If you've already submitted, don't freak out. We'll still process yours as is. This is just for those who are still deep into the creative process.
