WPC is now more than 100 weeks old. So far whenever we had any announcement to make, we did it in the latest topic. we announced things at the beginning of whichever week the changes were introduced. This had a lot of disadvantages.

One of them is redundancy. One rule might get changed by the next one, and people will soon lose track of what the actual rules are.

Besides, if a member comes back after a one-week long break he/she might miss an important update or worse, break a rule he/she didn't even know existed!

And so that is why this topic has been introduced. Check all the latest WPC updates in this thread. whever you see a red-flag beside the topic title indicating a new post, click on it immediately. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Introduction To A New Award!

Due to Increasing Complaints about Voting in WPC , we have decided to Introduce 3 more winners along with the top 3 postions (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) the new award is named as "WPC ZouZou" the word ZouZou means Huge and it will definitely bring a HUGE difference in WPC voting (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
Trophy looks like this :

Thanks To Pingallery(Petra) who helped in Designing this beautiful Trophy (IMG:style_emoticons/default/clap.gif)

So the winning format will be like this:
1. WPC 1st position
2. WPC 2nd position
3. WPC 3rd position

1. WPC ZouZou 1st position
2. WPC ZouZou 2nd postion
3. WPC ZouZou 3rd position

There Wont be 2 groups anymore! Instead we added 3 more winners. so basically the pro's compete with the other pro's within the group. ZouZou will be awarded to participants, who've never won a trophy before! Also ZouZou Winners will get Trophies in their profiles!!

Important Update !!!!! Graphic Manipulation

Wallpapers that have been changed just by adding Text, wont be accepted anymore (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) In order to have a valid entry , you have to use 2 or more wallpapers , that can include an object cut out from the other wally and pasted on the main/background wally (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) or simply a blend of both (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) , and if youre adding effects to the main wally(not created by you) , the effects have to be conspicuous (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)

Tineye Accuracy Update!!


As most of us know about Tineye.com a website which reverse checks/searches the wallpapers (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) , its also an add on application for fire fox, so we can track what is the original source of that wallpaper.
i) As you might think it is 100% accurate but unfortunately it is not!
ii)sometimes it shows say 60 sources of a wally but it might be just our background wallpaper only not the additional wallys we have used! , so in this case i normally check the sources and matched wallys!
iii)it also fails to track minor changes in the wally for eg. any kind of effect which are not effecting the overall look of that wallpaper!

In short we cannot completely rely on the results of tineye , will need further investigation on the wallpaper , may be necessary to look at PSD, all the wallpapers used and their sources! the participant will have to provide with all the information required to prove that the wallpaper has not been stolen (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)

"WPC Star of the Week"

After working two years as a WPC manager, the only thing i felt was that we never had any Rising Designer badge which could have actually motivated the newbies more, so i thought if we dont have a badge/trophy so what??? we can still encourage the new talent and give them some recognition!!
As you all know by now, the trophy is under construction (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wow.gif) and we shall post it here and in the winning thread as soon as it becomes available (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Thanks to Liapireas for designing this wonderful Trophy, So the trophy looks like this:

Image Protection


WPC Designers Are Working Very Hard To Create Their Graphic Manipulations.
In Order To Stop Copying To Some Extent It Would Be Wise If Participants Place Their Own Form Of Signature On Their Artworks.
It Can Be Initials / Id Name Whatever They Want.
It Can Be In A Place Where It Cannot Be Cropped Or Changed (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) Usually In The Center Of The Image In A Very Light Color (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)
Participant May Choose As Per Their Own Need Weather To Add / Not Add The Signature To Their Entries.
Please Note That This Rule Is Not A Compulsion And Is Meant Only For The Sake Of Protection Of The Artworks.

Participants Are Allowed To Use All The Elements You Find Over The Net Even If Its Used By Others.
