I am surprised by his wining logo there, even more so, when I noticed a few similar designs here, but away better.

I wish we had noticed this on time... and you are right, we should search other sites when it comes like this, I mean before it comes to this:).

BTW, Sharie, all the entries are visible trough the comments section.


Hi babba,
I have one whole list of other sites, please tell me just the initial of the site you were mentioned, I want to fine out what the hack is that winning logo.

Sharie, you have cleaned up the comments, but image files are still on server. If you have a link of the particular design you will see it. I've already used concepts elsewhere. In order to eliminate any issues with clients and contest holding websites please delete that files. Just wondering if I withdraw my designs from portfolio you're guys still keeping them? This is sooo wrong.

Babba, you’ve saved my times, thank you:) first of all, the color & font type are not suitable for accelerating computing, the designs in DC are better in terms of professionalism, not to make too much criticism on this logo from other site. I think DC should have the curiosity to know why the contest holder spent more money on other site for logo design? is it because the price has fixed on other site? is it because designers from DC were moved over there? is it because the CH could refund his money 100% guarantee by DC. is it because the CH also by the name Moimeme. LOL :) :) :)

after all, designers are the biggest loser involved for an abandoned contest like this one.

I just don't understand, I saw lots of great concepts/designs in the contest here, and didn't even give any points or ratings. Some designers are just trying to earn points to move up levels.

SCH, on the main page of the contest says $499, while on CH profile says "prize awarded $300", so I am confused... it is a big difference.
Site fees are not close to this difference, only if CH asked for additional services (refund option, extended contest, blind contest, etc..), but even then, it shouldn't be $200. And usually prize on the contest wall is a exact prize for a winning designer.

I can tell from my experience - I have accounts on couple of similar sites (including this one), but I never liked any of them. Time to time, I do go there to challenge my luck (not being lucky, by the way:)) and for a pure change. It is a mess to me.

I just love DC, for many reasons. I like concept of DC, it is more personable, it is more safer, both for designer & clients.

P.S. What did you mean by Moimeme? I don't understand. Moimeme is/was CH also?:)

I was just kidding you on my last sentence :) LOL :). I am sure everyone of us like it here in the first place, the site here is more organized in terms of accessibility to the content. when i was first here, the prize money was good in average. And now, most of it are low, low & low:(

:D
The prize is the last thing I look on contest, so I can't agree or disagree with you.
My first concern is to bring idea, a good idea, that someone (client) would love. Specially, it is hard when the contest is not blind, being careful not to copy anyone, as on some contest we all have similar ideas... automatically kills your creativity.

Just to inform you the other site also has money back guarantee. We do not set the prize amount the contestholders set this amount. Our prize amount is right in line with others. The other site have way higher refund rate than we do and almost all have abandoned contests, this is not "unique to designcontest.com I have no idea what the others do with abandoned contests or if they compensate the designers in any way. I think the way we deal with abandoned contest is fair. We do not keep the funds ourselves and spread it out with the designers in that contest or offer 3 paid winners in a community contest.

I think the quality of designs our designers submit is much higher than almost all the other sites! DC grows every month. You the designers make this happen. We hate it when a contest like this happens and thank goodness it doesn't happen very often!
