"a win is a win, a loss is a loss." admit it people.he won. it doesn't matter what he has done, but they pick this picture because they like it. maybe they have other picture to look at, but this one won their heart the most..soo..he won.. No heart feeling..haha.
i loveeee your words!!! hahaaa.. so 4 y'all who dissatisfied him, dont blame him. he just do his work.. you can blame the organizer who make him win. thats all. tq. for this person 'imnotsosubtle', stop your fu*kin sh*t bla bla bla... winner is winner. loser is loser ok.
Don't worry about imnotsosubtle. He told me I wasn't the brightest crayon in the box (supposed to be either sharpest crayon in the box or brightest bulb in the chandelier), so he/she's obviously just butthurt.
What I was trying to say was that it would either be "brightest bulb in the chandelier", "sharpest crayon in the box" or "brightest colored crayon in the box" (though I don't think that one makes much sense either), as a crayon cannot be bright, but can be brightly colored.
It's not wrong. In an English class I attended a few years ago, this was brought up. It is the correct way to say it, because there are many ways of saying it. Here's a list of a bunch of those sayings - [link]
Again, it's not a matter of being dissatisfied with his work, it's about him stealing an image that someone else created. It is illegal. And don't tell me what to do. Yes, a winner is a winner, but in this case the winner is a cheater. It doesn't even matter anyway. I already wrote to LP and their lawyer.
Hello azzim,no matter what and how,you are the winner.Lol! fucking disturb this guy for what?! Every contest got the participant to join and you can blame to the organizer or linkin park or your mom & dad.He Won!hahahahah.. Fucking rules of what?Why not you left the comment and start fucking try harder for the next soundtrack album cover.hAhahahAHHAhaha
That's not even why most people are pissed. It's because he stole someone's wallpaper, changed the colors and added some text. Taking someone's creation and changing the colors is ridiculous and I am pretty sure it's illegal.
I am 100% sure that the wallpaper owner does care. And I did look at the others and they're guilty of it too. This isn't a situation where I am just ragging on the winner because they won. I'm ragging on everyone who used another person's image.
two wrongs dont make a right. it's that simple. just because others did the wrong thing it doesnt justify your own actions. the fact that this guy didnt disqualify himself says more about a lot about his lack of integrity.
Maybe you don't deserve all the hate. But at least admit that you have violated the rules, also to the judges. In your place I would feel ashamed to be the winner of the contest, if I had knowingly uploaded several images that are regarding to the RULES not allowed. Therefore you have to disqualify yourself. It's that simple.
They don't? They didn't follow the rules at all, they submitted NINE entries (and the contest rules stated that you may submit only one or you'll be disqualified). Also, they stole this image from someone else. You think this is a fabulous entry? The original image they stole is way better.
Show me the image they stole and I'll believe you, but I haven't heard that before. And it's his mistake that he submitted 9 entries, but it's the fault of whoever was supposed to sort the entries out that he didn't get disqualified.
No, it's not a public file. And no, no one but that person can use it. It's something that someone else created. Someone spent time on that piece and put in their hard work. So with your logic, I can use any of your photos or artwork you spent time creating, change some colors and submit it to a contest - right?
And [b]no[/b] just because you can find it on Google does not mean it's a public file. My twitter and facebook profile image is listed in Google images, but it's definitely NOT OK for people to use it.
That's completely asinine. That's why you can get expelled from school if you take a report or story off of the internet and pass it off as your own creation. Same thing if you take a film, song or piece of literature from the internet. It's not for your own personal use. Just because Google, Bing, MSN or Yahoo has it listed in it's images, doesn't mean it's free to use. You can't take something, tweak it a little bit and then say it's yours or enter it in a contest. It's called copyright.
First of all, the images on that website are public files, which would be why it says wallpapers for free at the top of their home screen. And second, he never said the images or logos were his, and I didn't see a copyright on that photo.
It didn't originate on that website, smart one. It's just the original file, as in the one he edited - the 'before' photo. It's on a lot of websites because they also stole the image from the owner. You would know that if you weren't so lazy and did a random "optimus bumblebee wallpaper" search in Google Images.
I'm just going to assume you're not an idiot, but that you're just someone who is ignorant - but ANYONE who creates something has a copyright. Anyone who uses that image, goes against the copyright laws. It is illegal to use someone's work.
If someone used your photos or artwork that you spent time creating, and then changed some colors and submitted it to a contest; would you be OK with that? Even if they found it on a Google Image search? I mean, with your twisted logic, any image on a Google search is free to use, right?
I don't even know why you're arguing with me about this. He used an image that does not belong to him, he went against multiple rules. He should have been disqualified. End of story.
It isn't bad, BUT... The font and the colors are really poor, I could do better in MS Paint, and the LP actual logo isn't that one. Oh, I almost forgot (or not): you clearly had broken the rules. But it's not your fault, you just tried...
Someone else DID think of it, the person who created this - [link] If he had used the image as inspiration and drew it by hand, I wouldn't have said a word, because his creation would have been his but inspired by someone else. That's not the case here. He took someone else's wallpaper, changed 2 things, threw some text on the image and submitted it. That's not creative, that's cheating. And he didn't even have the decency to credit the original image.
