i sent it to them via here, i think it has to be approved first, when your log in, go to the home page, and click on tshirt link, there is already one up, it looks really cool.

they have a few good designs up so far...
Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:55 pm
Strange, I can't get the designs to load in the larger window when I click on them. All I get is the spinny wheel.
I can't see enough detail looking at the thumbnails.

thats odd, i just clicked on them and they popped right up, maybe they are updating the page, i sent one in a couple days ago, still not posted.

OK, I'm goofy. Using the same PC, this morning each design popped up when I clicked on them.

its funny how it says in the rules that you are suppose to use 2013 sponsors, but i see many people posting old stuff, yet they still havent posted mine because i sent 2 by accident and even let them know as soon as it happened, i wrote them a email at the beginning of the week and they dont even have the courtesy to reply back, and then some of wonder why i bust on SHR, they never interact with us, unless it benefits them.
Fri Jan 18, 2013 1:56 pm
Not only that, but one of the designs has the testing cars on it. The grey with just the doors in color that they had at the Daytona test. There aren't very many out there yet either. Maybe they're just behind cause they've received so many entries? Seems like they should have been ready when they make the announcement, but who knows...

i can understand the onslaught of many entries, but the fact they dont respond to emails or questions posted is b.s., that is a reflection on SHR and the whole experience you have when visiting a website, i sure as heck would never buy nothing from this site, just because of that, if they are swamped, then hire someone to answer the email or questions, or better yet actually have a moderator that can help.

From what I've observed, MJ, is that the website was never set up to allow interaction between it's members and anyone from either SHR or Animink (for technical issues).
All I have seen is someone from Animink making an initial post (like the t-shirt contest), but they don't monitor the topic after that for any responses or questions.
Now, whether or not they SHOULD
monitor and reply is a separate discussion.
Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:33 pm
then why bother posting in the proper areas or have access to their email if there is not going to be any interaction, its a lame cop-out.
Fri Jan 18, 2013 5:04 pm
OFF TOPIC ... but...
Animink Inc does reply to people, depending on the mail.
They've never replied back to me ... except when I've been in trouble... hee hee hee
They also do monitor the site, removing spam and so forth.
Fri Jan 18, 2013 8:28 pm
I don't know about the monitoring. I know I've reported quite a lot of spam to them so there wasn't any monitoring going on for that. If you click on a spam post to report it, it will tell you if it's already been reported. They've never responded to me for anything, regardless of the reason. If SHR is paying for monitoring, it's not getting it's money worth, in my opinion.
The only time I noticed them doing anything other than removing spam that had been reported was when I reported a person's post that was very inappropriate. The next day the post had been removed, but again, it was something reported to them. At least that's been my experience.

thank you ladies, you made the point i was trying to make, it shows you SOMEONE is watching the site daily, if they are removing spam, also someone is working on the site if they are uploading the tee pics, if they are bein swamped with entries they should say that this is occurring and we will try to answer the emails, the reason it bothers me, not because i think i am going to win, i seen one or two up there that should win, but in talking with smokie, she had a great idea about donating the shirt back to SHR and put it up for auction and give the money to charity, but its clear the rules they set for the design contest are out the window, many people are using office depot pics, some have the army logo in them, and the impala logo, when it stated 2013 sponsors.

After I submitted my idea, I got these official rules ^^ & copied & pasted for yall.
MJ, your mistake may have doomed you... LOL (( sorry dude )) and my not getting the official rules until after
I submitted mine, may have doomed me too. LOL Mine was more "SHR-ish" and the rules state "create a driver T-shirt design" - I didn't do that. ( Darn my Charlie Brown luck! LOL )
It also states to use current sponsors, which begs the question.. why do they put up designs with old sponsors? LOL
So who knows MJ, people like you who accidentally submitted twice or me who didn't follow the rules - ours may never see the light of the contest. (( I feel like I should welcome you to my world, or something.. LOL ))
Anyways... them's the rules folks - with what Rochelle posted on page 1 and this part - try & stick to the rules I guess.
