Matto, don't you have a team of your very own to go and hound? Or do you just like to make it a habit of causing your own decension where it isn't needed or wanted?

I start these threads for Team Eminence. Not for Team Annoyance. I am sure there is still a draft leaque open for the taking, if you care to be your own captain? If you belong to one already, then go annoy them.

There is no decension here. My team is pumped and morale is high. We just had one that wasn't able to continue on for reasons I don't care to disclose, as it is really no ones business but his and mine. Better it happen now then after the season starts. I actually just got back from lunch to find more PM's from others wanting to sign on to Team Eminence. So, your own decension really isn't needed here, at all.

Good day,
Espy


But trash talk is sooo fun. Oh well, ifn you dont want to join in the fun so be it.

My error this time mk. :)

Sorry MacClavey. I'm not an icon looker or a profile monger, so I always revert to he's rather than she's when in discussion. Forgive :)

Thank you DAWAR. I have responded to your email.

Team Eminence is down one member. MacClavey has dropped.

I have written to one who was listed on the draft pool, as per SouthernGenetlemans' earlier suggestion. If that person is a no go, then we will be looking for one more member for our team.

If you are interested, you can PM me. I will let you know if the draft pool pick is a go first though.

Thanks!

Dear Rose,
A logo is a prestige of the organisation. International companies spend a lot for its designing. The design should depict many things.Organisation's product, name,aim and every thing it can say. Choosing type font and size also matters a lot. I have choosen the rule of the third,complementary colors half green and half red.The placement of the text is also at one third place. It should not loose its identity on reduction.Text at 30 degree up shows progress.

I have designed it and it is in your mail.
Tell me your view.
DAWAR

This is only if you have not completed it already.


I have no particular guidelines. Just something that will go for either sex, and not to girly or too manly. Something that represents eminence with some kind of kicker like "watch the magic happen", or something along those lines. I did have a guys arm with a magic wand as a biginning graphic. But I haven't had time to work on it. Too busy getting my still life entry in, but if you want to work on it, go ahead, by all means! Send it to me when you are done though, so we can agree. Thanks for offering!

DAWAR, thanks, and yes, we are going to be rockin I think! I am going to make us a logo today sometime. I'll add it to the thread when its done. The saying will be something like "Team Eminence, Watch the magic happen" or something along those lines I think.

Talk more soon!

OH, by the way, our team list is UP and so are the rules. You can see both here!

Many teams aren't filled yet, and some are just waiting for the full rule set. My best to you, and to you all!!

Thanks, I got an offer and took it up!

I chose Eminence because it means:

1. A position of great distinction or superiority
2. A person of high station or great achievements.

I believe that everyone who even enters a challenge is a winner because it shows your willingness to put forth your passion for the craft we all love. Anyone who puts forth their best efforts for a team is also a winner - there are no losers in dignity, integrity, and effort. In that, it shows great distinction, superiority in stamina, and a person of great achievement, NO MATTER anyone's score. Winning, in the traditional sense, is only a bonus. The main objective is to just have fun with it and to give others a reason to do their best works is the objective of a contest. Contests are always healthy in that regard. We learn much from them.

And lastly I just want to say that I appreciate all of you for joining Team Eminence. We have a wonderful team and a team to be surely proud of.

GREAT THEME AND GREAT AIMS !

GOD BLESS US ALL TO BE TOGATHER FOR LIFE TIME !

OH, that is wonderful cutlassdude70! BUT, be it DPC or anywhere else there are challenges, and there are some truly awesome other sites as well, learning and fun is the key!!

Ok, here are the latest words for when we will begin from SouthernGentelman:

July 2, 2006 to make sure we have all teams ready and to give people a break. If all teams are ready before then we may move it up to the middle of June.

So get your game faces on!

Make sure your cameras are loaded with a fresh battery, the correct date, and shine up those lenses!! :)
05/15/2006 06:43:30 PM · #17
Excellent words! :) I couldn't agree more with your outlook on winners. Whatever the outcome of the challenges, I'm sure that all of us will learn a great deal. If there's anything I've learned about DPC in my short time here, it's that there's pretty-much no better place to learn and share knowledge with others with a passion for photography. [cheers]Here's to Team Eminence! :)[/cheers]

Thank you Greengiant, I am sure it will be.

I just wanted to say one more thing before challenges begin sometime at the end of June or beginning of July:

I chose #8 for the slot because that is the month my son was born in.

I chose Eminence because it means:

1. A position of great distinction or superiority
2. A person of high station or great achievements.

WELCOME aboard gang, and let's all do our best to kick butts~~~!!! BUT, above and beyond all, the main objective is to just have FUN in ALL the challenges!

I believe it runs for something like 10 - 12 weeks, and for the challenges that are listed on DPC. I'm still gathering the details, but there is a WPL1 as well. If you see that thread, you may find more information as well. But most of us are awaiting the actual ruleset. The best thing to do is plan to enter challenges for the next 10- 12 weeks or so. I don't believe it begins until after June 18th.
