It sounds like only the winning entry will become sole property of SMF? So what happens with the other entries? Are they just given back; will the creator(s) be asked to add their entry to the SMF modification smiley site; are they, considering that property rights are tacitly given to SMF, added to the SMF modification smiley site automatically or ...?
We won't be claiming any property rights to any submission, all submissions are the authors and will remain that way, including the winning set.
The smileys submit will be showcased on every SMF admin center, allowing 1 click (ish) install
the same way we handle mods and themes.
You are free to impose any license/copyrights onto your smileys as you see fit.
If, and this is majorly hypothetical, and only an if. If the winner is chosen to be part of SMF 2.0, as a default or extra set, we will contact the author and arrange to credit and transfer the rights to their work to us, if they choose to, we will not force anything. Your work is yours
I must've made like 4 variations of each smiley. I'm going to select which one's I like best (may or may not be the best) and throw the rest into another folder and submit the whole thing. Just 2 more to go, Angel and Grin.... grrrrrr
FYI Trekkie: Please Note - According to what smiley's are required, there are 17 Smileys in your list and 1 blank Smiley. So technically, should say 17 Standard Smiley's and 1 Blank Smiley. Currently says 16 standard smiley's and 1 blank smiley.
Thanks, and *sigh*, on a standard SMF install there are 16, angel is not a default smiley, but we have it installed here, causing all my idiotic issues
I offer apologies, and we will not judge based on how many smileys are in a submission, Ill take anything between 16-23 or whatever it is
