WHOA, this thread got out of hand before I even saw it.

csweeney sort of has the idea of what would go on here, although she's assuming all 6club rules would apply here.

I have been planning on getting stickers done, although I haven't actually worked with anyone to find out prices yet.
I DEFINITLY like the idea of a logo contest. This has been the big impediment so far to getting this done. I actually brought this subject up a month or so ago, and didn't get much in the way of a response.

Now regarding copyrights/trademarks/etc.

As csweeney expects, these rules will largely mirror 6club's. Except they will (at this time) mirror 6club's ORIGINAL rules, not the current ones. csweeney, the current rules at 6club were put into place because of the delay in getting official stickers out. They were not like that - they were worse, I'm sorry to tell you.

Official stickers will be made available as soon as possible pending the delivery of a logo I find satisfactory (and assuming the author of that logo agrees to the terms of that delivery).

No permission of any kind should be considered given to use the Mazda3Forums.com name. Personally produced logo's take valuable revenue from this site, at a time when costs are rising exponentially.

Should there be an unusual delay in the production of stickers, as there has been at 6club, then I will consider allowing the personal production of stickers. But at this time it will be official stickers only.

I'll write up something about a logo contest and post it ASAP.

I know this is getting into copyright and all, but I would like the Mazda3 logo from the Mazda3 website and then forums.com in the same font as Mazda.

If they're not sold for profit, then is it still copyright? As long as you use the (R)? I don't know. It seems like the URL would be illegal too. But I don't think Mazda would say anything since it's good PR.
Yes, that would still be illegal. No, probably Mazda would not complain, but it isn't worth dealing with that.

Glad to hear that there will be a sticker for this site. Dare I hope, even sooner than mazda6club? Nah, didn't assume the rules would be the same, just similar. It's all good though. :)

Why don't you give it a shot? I had other ideas, but like I said I am not very good at being creative. I really liked the thick lettering-will stand out easier. I'm all for changing it a bit, but I cranked that out in less than 20 minutes. :D edit- the thick black letters are a result of the font I used, so there's no changing the thickness without changing the font.

Also, if anyone has any suggestions for places to make the stickers... preferably in New England, but not necessarily (if they're willing to mail to me), I'll take them under consideration (I will be pursuing my own leads as well).

You could change the thickness if you imported it into pshop and scaled it outword, csweeny.
sorry, can't seem to figure it out. :(
Don't try to manipulate it as text. If you're typing the text in pshop, then before trying to manipulate it, go to "flatten image." This will make the text just a graphic. Then you can take it and say "increase image size 50% horizontal" for example. This will stretch everything wider.

If you want to manipulate just part of the text though, it's trickier. I can tell you how to do it, just not sure exactly what you're trying to do.
