Hi Guys

Just thought Id start a thread for us to meet each other so far we have

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' imagine74
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/31_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Kliopatra
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kandykarml
' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Krystle

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' rwo82939

and of course myself, I'll admit I havenít been in a WPL before but decided that sitting in the free agent list probably wasnít going to get me in this one either. Do you guys have any preference to who we could invite? Iíve sent out 2 other invites that havenít responded as yet, so we have 2 potential spots to fill.

I'm looking forward to this, it should be fun and as always challenging myself to get a great shot in to all the challenges.

Edit to add Welcome to the team and I'm glad you decided to accept :)

Sorry if you guys are getting more sign on invitation emails from me, it seems everytime I put out an invite it emails everyone, even those that have accepted. odd

Some have already been taken or removed themselves & I sure wish I could send out more invites at a time, but I can only send as many spaces as we have left. So it could be a slower proccess. Still at least we are finalised now and are just looking to bulk up some numbers.

also we only have a few days left to change the name/logo if you guys want
05/10/2007 07:14:09 PM · #7
well hi guys :) i'm okay with our name i spose, but i really do'nt know what everyone else is like. i'm a bit more weird/spunky/goofy myself, so something more out there could be neat.. i'll look into some stuff and suggest :)

Striped Platypode (the actual plural of platypus? yes, i'm that goofy.) :)
or Polka-Dot Platypode...

Sorry for hijacking the thread for a bit (kick me if necessary) but where would a newbie begin when wanting to make a logo for his DPL team? I can't just use anything I find on the web and tweak it a bit and then call it mine, can I?
CS3, no illustrator (oh yeah, no name yet either). Any suggestions (besides a name and idea)?
05/10/2007 08:07:06 PM · #10
don't worry about hijacking, although you'd probably have more luck if you made your own thread to the effect of your question, most people have the side challenges forums turned off, or don't check out the threads of specific teams.. to answer your question... i don't personally know i'm a bit weird, so i looked up weird animals, because teams seem to go with an animal/mascot quite often, and then i thought of something wonky to go with it... after that i just made the little logo up.. i'd look through the profiles of your teammates and see what everyone likes to post pics of.. try to learn a little bit of personality of them, and come up with somthign to suggest.. anyone else can contribute ideas to what you come up with, it's just always the hard part to come up with something.
i'm hanging here doing nothing, so if you reply i'm likely to see it again soon :) hope it helps!
05/10/2007 08:07:48 PM · #11
oh yeah, i'm not sure if you can just pull an image off the web, i'd maybe ask sc? i did, and might have to change what i've got because of it..

lol yep, thats intresting :) Id be happier with something that we took ourselves, but I don't have a decent shot of a platypus or Platypode :) I personaly would like to see a bit of a calm logo, so if we can find a group of Platypode in a nice blue water shot, we are in. :)
05/11/2007 05:13:22 PM · #14
but so can we change the name? i don't know what everyone else thinks??
05/11/2007 05:16:53 PM · #15
Hi Krystle, I like ur idea of using the Platypode for our logo but I think the photo isn't clear enough to be recognized, I will try to work on a logo design for our team with the name u came up with.
one more thing I don't think its goofy idea.

Sounds good to me, any objections? we still have 2 days to decide
05/11/2007 07:04:42 PM · #17
how about

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/69776/thumb/510503.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/69776/thumb/510503.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

just an option
05/11/2007 07:31:18 PM · #18
not sure :) for me it's too plain.. we don't have to have a logo finalized before the start of the season, just the name too, so we could keep working on something? i'd at least like to see what kliopatra comes up with :)

Hi team. Just wanted to introduce myself and thank you for the invitation to join the team. I go by Bob so please feel free to use it in any contacts. I have looked at each members profile and some photos of each and we have a nice balance of young & old, I'm the later at 68, male & female and different areas of the world. Looking forward to experiencing these challenges with you.
05/12/2007 10:48:01 AM · #21
Hi guys,
I made this design for our logo but the problem is I'm not a member so I will send it to Steven so he could upload it here, hope u like it.
05/12/2007 10:48:43 AM · #22

05/12/2007 11:41:02 AM · #23

05/12/2007 06:44:14 PM · #25
Thanks Krystle, I hope the others like it.
there is something I'm worried about, the league rule that the number of the teams must be divisible by 24 (48, 72, 96, etc), right now the teams that is finalized are 68 & our no. is 57 so I pray in the next few hours it would be at least 4 teams are finalized.
