Darn! Darn! Darn!

Hello orbs!! BFM your friendly neighborhood goldminer here, with a project that I think you're gonna love!

Some of you may recall a few weeks ago I put out a request for images you thought really represented the BYOB experience. I was coy about it at the time but now I can reveal what they were for, and a little of what we've been doing behind the SA Front Page scenes recently: we're building a new SomethingAwful merch store full of brand new goodies! Shirts, hats, bags, prints of your favorite SA artwork, it's gonna be a real bonanza. But perhaps most excitingly, there will also be.... stickers!!!!

Yes stickers, actual Kiss Cut Vinyl stickers from Gooten, one of our new PoD services. They're fun, they're inexpensive, and proceeds all go to keeping the SomethingAwful forums running. So who better to come up with cool stickers than the 'yobbers? Hence, The BYOB Sticker Club, a regular contest/fundraiser to come up with new stickers for the official SA store!

Here are the FOUR MINUS TWO LEAVES TWO WTF???? images we have so far, taken from the submissions last time:


#3:

#4:

Please vote ITT which one you would like to be the first official BYOB sticker club sticker, and I will make sure it is available in our store!

(Note: My understanding is nobody claims the rights to any of these images, if that is wrong please PM me or post here and we will remove the offenders!)

But wait, there's more! Every month we want to add new stickers to the BYOB sticker club roster! Submit your designs in this thread (please only original / public domain images, as high a resolution as possible and nothing NSFW!) and if one of yours is chosen, you'll receive a fabulous prize: free avvie certs! Redtext your enemies or slap on a gangtag without breaking a sweat, spread beautiful BYOB stickers all over the world, and help SA stay online!

Remember, any designs you submit to this thread can and will be sold in the upcoming new SA store, and we are unfortunately not able to give artists a cut of the proceeds, this is essentially a charitable art drive to keep SA afloat. However I can promise you we will correctly attribute your forums username to your art for as long as it is sold, showing everybody that you've gone above and beyond to protect our weird little home.

This is still a very new project so guidelines are subject to change, but there's a serious push right now for this new store, it's happening. I think if we use this platform to spread a little BYOB chill on the world's binders, laptops, guitar cases and back car windows, everywhere a sticker might be stuck, we might make the whole world a little more laid-back. Thanks everyone, and welcome one and all to the sticker club!

I'm voting for #2 because although it comes from an inside joke, any passerby on the street will know what that dog has been up to .

Are these two parodies of anything? All the rest will get us sued.

I appreciate the effort and your handicraft, but again everyone, please don't submit anything you aren't sure you have the rights to sell.

I thought they were something, totally makes sense they're music references (my only bigger pop culture blind spot is sports)

All awesome images, don't get me wrong. Sorry I gotta make it the BYOB Stickler Club.

Heather Papps and I talked at length about it. Probably not. It's probably from like an Anne Geddes but Cats type calendar, although I know I haven't taken the time to grab a frame and Tineye it yet.


There was an idea about reillustrating him, which would mean a higher resolution and our own copyright, but honestly I don't really have the talent for drawing cats I know some other goons have. A new, open-source hammock cat sounds like a BYOB project all to it's own though.

hello internet friend




it's a weird situation: if it's satire or parody, it becomes fair use, but with hammock cat in particular it's very sincere so... laws are weird as hell.

yeah if it's just the same image in the same context, that's just somebody else's image.

It's strange. Seems we only rlly own the friend square.

makes u think

Goons Are Great

Please drink responsibly


I'd stick the friend square tbh


BoldFrankensteinMir

Darn! Darn! Darn!

If I had my druthers I'd do some kind of event or something to show everybody how to determine the rights on images. There's so much in the commons but we just get lazy in 'shop contests and such, and the result is a giant chunk of our art that we don't actually own and can't do anything with.

Same thing with fonts. We might technically not own the friendship square either if it's not a free font, but that's such a nitpick I'm willing to risk it.

Okay, that's fair. Luckily I'm not the one in charge, so I'll run it by the boss and if they give a thumb's up, I'll add them.

Not only that, you can snap a pic of it and people touch the square on the binder in the picture just like the regular version! It's the friendship hypercube!

the friend square is an extremely powerful talisman of friendship i would love to be equipped with in sticker form

my favourite is the old school google style gmungo though. i don't know why it just makes me smile. like i'm about to make a search query on a network of chill friend energy. what if it had a search box with "lol" typed in and there was an "i'm feeling chill" option

I am legitimately hoping we can use all of those, they're fantastic, I'm just paranoid 'cause I have to be. It is being considered right now by powers greater than I.
