    Not so fast, shotglass. I hope you didn't just throw that sip I left away. "Waste not, want not," you know.

    So, someone wins 7 times (or what the fuck ever), people win even though their lineups are shite or suspect or CONTAIN GLARING MISSPELLINGS, and now someone wins through blatant plagiarism. Great job on the organization of a fucking contest, guys. Honestly, pat yourselves on the backs for being completely retarded.

    Here's a thought: Before you offhandedly declare a contest, maybe actually put some thought into guidelines, and then actually enforce them *ahem "DO put the name of the year in the upper right hand corner" ahem*

    from the people who brought us "ROXANNE"...it's half-assed clusterfuck contest '10!

    It just struck me, this is a valid contest, with something of monetary value being given away...it is subject to LAWS...and I think plagiarizing someone else's poster design to win something that's worth 300 dollars is AGAINST THE FUCKING LAW.

    Do your research before handing out tickets you lazy idiots.

    i'm wondering what posters C DUBYA did not like. maybe you can make your own contest? and award another deserving poster for that year. you know, like a teacher with a fat red pen and awesome prizes in the treasure box?

    I just now realized the prize was actual tickets and not just VIP upgrades. I'm a fucking idiot.

    Really? You honestly expect them to validate the legitimacy of every single submitted poster? He plagiarized off an obscure ass 'local' poster from Vegas and you expect the judges to go through that much effort before making their decision?

    It's okay to be rude in other threads, but this thread actually matters and some of us are real people.
    Breaking a rule does not automatically disqualify an entry.

    Does a basketball team automatically lose b/c it has more fouls than the other team? Does a football team lose if one of its players intentionally hurts an opponent? Stop bitching.

    major bummer
    So are you saying Tiger Woods should just take the rest of the year off when he wins 3 or 4 tournaments?

    It never ceases to amaze how some can find such negativity in something so inherently positive.

    Depends, there were a few naturally, but my opinion really doesn't matter.

    I'd also say there are different reasons for not liking posters... from a visual design or line-up perspective? Design wise, what appeals to me, obviously doesn't appeal to everyone (I can't stand emek's posters for example, but a lot of people love them)

    On a completely different, positive note, boarderwoozel13, I am listening to Are We Here? and all is well in the world knowing we get to see Orbital very soon.

    Oh that's right, I forgot, rewarding plagiarists with coachella tickets is "inherently positive". The promoters had good intentions, so it's okay for cheaters to win. Great.

    Tiger should just take the rest of the year off for all the scoring he did when he wasn't playing golf.

    WOW. This is totally unacceptable. If you submit a poster, it damn well better be yours. I retract my approval. "orignl", my ass. What a dick.

    Kudos to everyone who worked hard and put their best efforts into their very own creations, whether you won, or not. That speaks volumes. (I realize that is small consolation for all you hoping to win.) And I admit I was greatly perplexed by some of the winners (some of my faves didn't make the cut), but such is life. Disappointing to be sure, but not earth-shattering.

    No they don't, but the players/teams are still punished in-game (penalties, etc etc).

    Well, usually they are. Haha, like they always say, "there are two kinds of refs: bad refs, and then worse refs".

    I'll agree that the judges should have looked into the misspellings. I mean, it's designed to be an actual coachella lineup, and we approached it that way in the sense that we should have made sure everything was spelled appropriately and whatnot. The designers who make the actual posters do this, so I believe that it's fair the judges do it too.

    The whole "year in the right place" argument is ridiculous. Who cares? If the year is clearly visible on the poster, then that's fine in my book.

    This is the problem with impromptu contests. While they're always fun, these kind of problems/arguments surface with the results.

    Do your research before handing out tickets you lazy idiots.
    How were they supposed to research this shit when it comes to background images? Google image every possible word in existence to figure this out? They don't know every corner of the internet and neither do we.

    Also, they didn't say we couldn't use another image (stop me if i'm wrong), so you can't call the user out on that claim, but does using that image the dude used raise a copyright infringement from the source? I dont want to say yes/no because I'm not sure on this kind of thing.

    pretty sure the actual coachella poster has had misspellings upon release more than once.

    FYI people

    "that is my poster for my show at my festival. lol. I didn't know if I was going to win, and after spending all the time making it instead of working on mine own poster, I reworked it. "

    The person who used that poster made that poster.
