hi there Sparefootstorage (contest holder)..we're hoping to hear back from you soon,we're waiting for your decision for this contest..and we're looking forward and excited who will win this contest..and good luck to all of us!:)
Yeah I understand what you mean. Its really frustrating when the top rated work is stolen. In other crowdsource websites like 99d... they immediately respond to complaints about stolen designs... but they also do not personally keep watch as well. I hope they should delegate a special task force for that or something. After all, at the end of the day, they're the ones that gain sure profit. Just saying...
Thanks for this by the way, this will definitely help our community here.
Contest holder: I'm not involved with this competition as of now but I thought you should know that mayursays007's "design" of the bear is STOLEN and should be rejected. That bear represents the Bear Cub Scouts of America (hence the scout emblems/logos on hat, tie, and belt.
