I'm starting this thread to allow for our new WPL team to communicate.

Ideas that I can think of for discussion:

New Team Name ("Slot 19" is a temporary name)
Team Logo
Team "playing cards"

How to make our team generally kick everyone's butt ... (without breaking DPC rules, of course).

I'll contact thew members with a link to this thread.

Don't we compete in all the challenges? It looks that way on the WPL site - and I was planning on the "Reflections" challenge...

It say on the WPL site: "If a photographer has more than one entry in a given week, only his/her highest scoring entry will be counted for the Team Average" - to me that looks like your best entry counts no matter which challenge it's in.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this :)

Terrific, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' metatate. Undoubtedly it's easier this way than through emails.

As you know, I did a little facilitating last night through emails, when we first received the news, to get everyone together.

I floated a couple of possible Team names. The two responses from team members are below:
Selective Focus
True Blue
Lucky Seven

I know it's not decided yet but I played around in PS and made a logo for Lucky Seven.

HI!

I like both selective focus and lucky seven. I also e-mailed some of you my e-mail address.

Lets kick butt.
11/02/2006 02:47:37 PM · #8
Hey, if we chose Lucky Seven, we have a twofer. A name and a logo. I like the logo Giorgio drew up.

Sounds like a good deal to me. So, that's three for Lucky Seven! (or is it 3 1/2 )

The clover is actually Fry's lucky clover from the Futurama series. :))

I don't need to be captain but I would like the captain to be someone who is often available and open to input as much as possible regarding team ideas etc. He/She would be in charge of keeping he team up to date and involved together.

Out of the 3 names mentioned i think I like 'True Blue'... I just don't know about that term "Lucky" :]

If you're looking for more ideas for names (sorry I'm sorta insane today ... and usually) ... Don't hold this against me ... we can use whatever the majority wants:

Team Victorious

Divine Images

Another Viewpoint

ImageNation or ImagingNation


OK ... better quit while I'm behind ...
Anyone like any of those????

Does anyone have an idea to set up a poll or something? ... maybe that's stupid because we only have a few people.

I am copy/pasting a meesage to me from Southern Gentleman just as an FYI.
He sorta said what I was thinking regarding a TEAM NAME / LOGO ...
INTIMIDATING!!!! AAARGGGHHHHH!!!!

----
Here's the forward message from SouthernGentleman


DPChallenge user Southern Gentleman has sent you the following private message:

Hi,
Let me try to answer your questions

1. Yes the WPL has started but it started with the members challenge "long exposure III". It is still in the submission stage. Always go to the schedule page to see who your team is playing each week and it will also tell you the challenges that are valid for that week.

2. Yes it's up to the team to communicate with each other. A good example is the "untouchables". They have a tread in the forums and keep in close contact.

3. Team names and Logos are just that. Kind of like any sports venue, it a pride thing. Teams trying to have the best looking and intimidating logo. It's a fun thing to do and depth to your team.

If you have any more questions feel free to contact me. Your welcome to pass this email along to your team mates. Have fun and I wish your team well.

regards,
SDW

I know I am not part of your team or anythign but the name ImageNation is brilliant. That would get my vote.
11/02/2006 03:33:32 PM · #12
Thanks - ImageNation was my favorite also.
11/02/2006 03:36:56 PM · #13
I think you guys should stick with "slot 19".
11/02/2006 03:38:41 PM · #14
Imagenation

That one gets my vote as well. Oh....and if you want to be captain Metatate go for it, but if you don't want to do it I will.

I'm going to through together some logos here in a bit...
11/02/2006 03:41:14 PM · #15
That sounds like the enemy talking ;P

Yes, ImageNation, with its clever double meaning is one I like as well.

"If we have ImageNation, we don't have to be lucky."

11/02/2006 03:46:15 PM · #17
Looking at those eye shots you took I'm imagining one of those with somehthing crazy in it - cropped tightly onthe eye of course -just an idea ---those are pretty nifty.
I have some design capability too so let me know if you need assistance.

Another idea: Did you see those "tiny planets" images in that thread a month or so ago? - maybe we could make a new version of one of those.

Just some really quick ones....I'll put some better ones together later on tonight using actual images perhaps. I can combine any of the texts and effects here...along with nay images. So just let me know what you guys like...

ImageNation sounds really clever. Oh, and I think that metatate should be El Capitan. Now I'll go back to the drawing board to make some crazy logo, and I'm thinking something out of the box(I guess I'll try that literally). :P

I vote metatate for captain as well....and I want to see what you guys come up with for logos as well.

Oh...btw, we are going to win.


11/02/2006 04:19:32 PM · #22
Hillarious ...
I just sent "Stare..." a PM to be Captain ...

Maybe we should be co-captains :O

PS; We will WIN!!

Haha....and I just sent you a pm saying I will be captain, lol. I'm going to leave it up to you, if you want to do it...then you can. If not...I'll be the captain. Not a big deal really.

I have to go take a shower now though...I smell like food. I'm a cook though, so I have a good excuse.

You guys are quick ...
THESE are cool!
DON'T STRESS ... it looks like you're creative enough.
Come up with some ideas for logos - LET'S SAY Monday evening is a deadline (11-7) ...
We'll set up a POLL somewhere and we can vote on them.

You can use whichever name you wanna use ...
Looks like ImageNation is the current fave but if you have an awesome idea using another name go for it.

Hopefully I can tell SouthernGentleman our new name and it can be up to date for the results of the first week ... and we can add the logo to our profiles ... make sense???!!!

Hi new team. I will try to answer some of your questions to help get your team started. Welcome to the WPL and it looks like you are well on your way to a good season. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

The first week of the WPL starts with the Members Challenge "Long Exposure II". The two exclusive open challenges are "Neon Signs" and "Reflections Without Mirrors III". On the schedule page at WPL you will see the valid challenges for each week when announced by DPC.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to this :)

You can compete in all valid challenges. This season they are the Members only challenge and the two exclusive open challenges each week. Additional/extra challenges will not count as a valid challenge. As far as what counts, say you enter the members challenge and score a 5.5000 and entered one of the exclusive open challenges and scored 6.000. Your highest score of 6.000 will count toward your teams average for that week.
Remember that only one of your two scores are allowed to count toward your teams score. so if you score a 7.3000 and a 7.2000 in two different challenges only your 7.3000 will count.
