    That's a real shame you don't have a badge but I can understand why, heck you read the sticky post and picked the second part of it (with pretty lame answers) and forgot the first part. Yep, can sure see why you haven't a badge yet.
    Go Championship....

    Like i said, i´m from Portugal. To give better answers i could write in portuguese, but i doubt you or most of the person would understand what we are looking for ( the English i know i learned in school, never lived in a country where English is mother language, try to learn portugues and than write or talk to see how good you would be)

    Our club was created in January , until now we have got a football field ( free loan by another local association) and want to start in September in the regional championship, with a senior team and trying to make a u-16 team.

    We have an idea of how the badge shoul be, but don't have the know how to do it. If we get free help to do something good, that would be excellent, otherwise we must improvise or copy an existing badge and change the letters ( that is what we want to avoid).

    Our idea is badge similar as Chelsea ( representing a ball), but the backgroun should be blue, our symbol (local) is a Wolf ( color: silver) that is walking and looking you in the eye. The club name is LAPA DO LOBO FC ( Lapa do Lobo is the town's name) that we want writen in silver.

    The answers that i gave before, is probably because i'm not an computer expert (like you), if i would, i already had a badge and a club website and wouldn't be looking for help.

    If anyone can give us a hand, it woul be very welcome.

    Hi MPC

    I hope you can understand Ishkey's frustration, we have sooooo many request where very little information is given but the person requesting spends 2 minutes filing out the sticky but expect us to spends hours and more on it for free!!

    I have however seen you spend that much more time and detail in your response so I have knocked this up for you.

    Hi Forest,

    Thanks for your time, the apearence is something like that, only we had something diferent in mind for the image. What we were thinking is a something like this file (it's a copy of city crest).
    Is it posible to put something like this in the image?

    About Ishkey, i understand tha you're spending time to help others, but if he don't help don't need to criticise or make remarks.

    Again, thank you for your help

    No that was sarcasm.

    This is Criticism due to your in-ability to follow instructions.

    The forum is in English as set by the owner.
    It doesn't mater what your first language is or what you might have learned in school.
    Translate programs abound on the net or find a forum which is written in the language of your choice.
    Google Translate, Bing translator

    You posted on Friday -
    3 days later you still haven't helped out on the forum, but yet have managed to create 3 posts for your benefit.

    The "sticky post" #4 - You are asked to search out a link and post it up for Chelsea's logo.
    #6 - Answer- No
    #7 - Answer- text& silver wolf

    1970Forest - creates you a logo BUT it is not what you wanted because you couldn't answer #6,
    so now you want him to redraw it, with picture you should have posted to begin with.

    Just some of the reasons for the sticky post
    ??Graphic Requests MUST READ??

    You do not have to be a computer expert, just read and follow the sticky post.
    It's called communication - works in any language.

    Maybe you missed the last line in the sticky post so I will retype it here.
    "Remember - Take time to answer all the questions the best you can, communicate as much information as you can, be descriptive because if not, then maybe you are just excited about having a graphic made and you are not ready for one, which ends up waisting everyone's time. Think of it this way - Your ability to create graphics is nil whereas our abilities to read minds does not exist.
    Finally Don't forget #1 of The DO's Above.
    Thank you."

    I'm sure 1970Forest will create a logo that will work for the team.
    Best of luck.

    Thank's for taking a few moments to tell me, again, that i haven't done it right.
    This simple words in your first mesage would be enough " the information you give isn't enough, read again the post and correct your information".
    I think the sarcasm wasn't necessary.
    With Forest mesage, even if he didn't made the logo, i would see that it wasn't correct of me sending the message like i did.
    If i had found a forum in my language or in other easier language for me i wouldn't bother you.
    You were right by saying that i should put more and better information, the way you said it wasn't correct.

    Again, i have to thank Forest to help me even with little information.

    I've been searching for a © free wolf graphic ( color: silver) that is walking and looking you in the eye.) and can't find anything suitable. One's I found were either too detailed or looked more like a fox. I also looked for the wolf graphic used by the Lapa do Lobo town and only found an outline of a wolf's head.
    I think MPC may have to be content wuth what Forest has done for him.
    Top job too Forest!

    The badge is really good and we are gratefull for Forest's help. The appearence is what we thought.
    About the image, our idea was to put an image, everyone here is familiar with.

    Again thanks

    I honestly think you would be foolish not to use this badge as it really is impressive ! :)

    On last Thursday, i showed the badge to my colleagues and they were impressed. Regarding the image we'll try to get what we had thought in the beggining, because of the symbolism that it represents too us (city). We'll just try to change the image, not because this one is bad, quite opposite, only for the symbolism.
    That walking wolf, represents what this town had to overcome, in the last 20 years, to get were we're today .

    Firstly you may have a 8yr old to thank for the badge I've just done, so a little story on why; he read through the post (some of it I had to explain) and his response was; you tell people to give detail, and when finally they do, you (me) and others post designs without doing as they ask, why is that?
    So I thought and thought and he was right (darn kids) so we both sat here and came up with the below, had a lot of fun doing it and now I've learnt how to do shadowing drawing (via -tube vid)

    Great work!! This is how we thought should be the wolf in our badge. It's a great badge.
    Can you thank the 8year old for me? we have a lot to thank him.

    Hi modman,
    2 quality badges.
    The first has more the appearence we want. The image is great, but it isn´t what we thought. For symbolic reasons we're looking for a walking wolf ( like Forest has drawn).

    Glad you like the drawing....

    I have now had time to adjust it more to how you want....Thoughts?
