The thought just occurred to me...using one of patterns for a cell phone cover with one of those sites who does that! Just wondering if anyone else has done that? Thanks

As long as it's your own pattern and template, there should be no problem. If you are using someone else's graphic, you are bound by the license, which says commercial use is not allowed without a contract. This isn't Clip Art, it is Creative Commons licensed.

You may not have been here long enough to remember the three contests we had for cellphone covers... Here are my losing entries to one of them, lol ^_^

What do you mean "losing entries"??? I can't believe not one of your cell cases did not win.

Aw, you are kind! Here's the list of winning entries in order, although it's distorted by months of voting after the fact. I don't think any of mine were in the top 10.

As I said on the other thread:
Well, I'm glad you like them, I didn't even end up on the first three pages of entries at the time, although I've moved up since (people kept voting long after the contest was over, even years after, you could vote until we moved servers recently) so I never bothered. Nobody ever made any of these, there's a transparent graphic overlay to look like a phone cover. Maybe I'll look into it someday ^_^

I am all for being patient while much needed changes are made to the site, but the complete absence of communication is very disturbing.
I feel it is a lack of respect towards the community to just leave us worrying and guessing every. bloody. time.

We have sat out weeks of CL not working because of DoS-Attacks, we've experienced several (for us: surprise) shut-downs as updates were implemented, we have grappled with the buggy fallout of many of these updates - and never a comment, a warning, a heads-up, an anything from anybody in charge.

Are we not worth being informed?

And now I sit and wait to see if this comment will actually be posted. I have not been able to comment anywhere, not even my own profile, for days.

Came back after being gone for 2 years to this disappointment, Also, once again, experienced issues with Seamless Light errors. Captchas are a pain in the butt (especially when they make you click though 3 pages of pics); however, I understand the need for them.

Have you tried another browser, like Google Chrome? I just tried Firefox and BPM (basic palette maker) worked fine and BPM also worked fine with Chrome. How about Photocopa? Have you tried making palettes that way? I'm just trying to help - I know it can be frustrating.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

TBH, I don't think I ever used Photocopa for my palettes. It never quite did what I wanted, and 90% of my palettes aren't based off photos.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)
