Yeah, I realise this isn't COMPLETELY the right forum for it (but then again I have no idea what really is) and I think it'll get the least complaints if I just chuck it here.

Basically trying to get some community thoughts on the following possible logo submission.

CCP approves of piracy, scamming and in game prostitution / drugs but this will most likely be marked as offensive even though half of eve is pro green

hth

Edit: but I LIKE it alot, so much that I am going to roll a myrmidon on your behalf

Well ... I hope you get it approved - it's a p cool logo. Someone would have to have a rather large stick up their ass to find it offensive and actually complain about it.

Mmm I mentioned the approval thing on alliance forums but without being CCP I don't know what would be acceptable. Would it be okay if it had a line through it? Would boosters be fine instead?

But basically we've been kicking ideas around on our forums for ages and this is what we've come up and which most people seem to like and since it's done by someone in alliance means we aren't going to have to pay anyone anything.

I say stick with the one you posted, it is pretty cool and fresh even though when you think of TNT you usually think explosives :/ maybe ccp will approve, I mean in theory it is just a leaf

Err yeah this is basically a bump so I'm not going to try and make a relevant post to disguise it.

Hope they are allowed in this forum... opinions please?

I dunno, the only way you will find out though is by putting it in for approval and waiting for a response from CCP. The main issue that I could see arising is that Eve is rated by PEGI Online as a 12+ game so there could be a problem with CCP not wanting to have in-game images of real world drugs, or references to them, as to maintain the game rating.

Most parents probably wouldn't want their kid to be a member of a gaming group that has a cannabis plant as it's trademark either, which I would think CCP would take into account. We used to have a group called E'z and Whizz or something similar "don't think they are still around", but since that group was formed the rules have changed due to the ratings implementation, thus some in-game items were changed or removed to make the game more "teen friendly" so your logo is a long shot in my opinion. But as I already said, you will only know when CCP tell you if it's acceptable or not.

edit: In a previous post you asked if boosters would be fine, I don't see why boosters would be an issue as it is already an in-game item, so by refusing you an alliance logo with boosters in it they would have to also remove the items from game if they thought it was inappropriate material.

CCPs customer base is largely in the PC US, I doubt they can afford explicit images like this. A baby being pressed through a meatgrinder on the other hand...

I don't think it's "explicit" or "bad" or anything like that.
How could someone be "offended" ?
People are weirdos.



But it's very...whatever the opposite of classy is. (nor is it very original)
You couldn't pay me all the ISK in the game to play as a representative of an alliance with a giant pot leaf. It's just f***ing stupid to me.

N'offense. Just being honest.


PS - get into the game world a bit more, I like others mentioning stuff like boosters and stuff... even a thinly-veiled eve narcotic guise of some kind would do you wonders
