That’s the biggest problem with 99 designs. Nobody understands how the system works, and how it looks like. Let’s just throw padlock, and be done with it.
This type of competition should be done within this forum, where everybody actually spend their time understanding the protocol. Once they do, they can actually submit their artwork, and show that it is more meaningful than what 99designs can do.
I’m sorry, but I am 110 percent against their decision here. They’re pushing it way too fast.
