    Thanks for all your comments! I’m chuffed to have made it to the finalists.

    Ebradbury – I just used GIMP to edit it (the free one lol) I love your fighting crime pic. Top idea.

    Softwhiteunderbelly – I like your Obama WordPress pic too! It’s pretty interesting to see what everyone’s come up with.

    now that’s sweet. I’m loving this one out of the two i had to choose.

    not only cute, but this has a great creativity about itself.

    good job!!

    Hah, I used GIMP to make mine too. I had a blast doing it. I’m usually no good at graphics editing but this one turned out pretty decent.

    Thanks Sylvia. And yeah ebradbury, you’d never know you weren’t good at graphics editing from your pic. Top work.

    Very cool this logo!!!!

    Thanks for the luck, and ditto to you, although it appears that you don’t seem to need it. :]

    I agree completely with the categorization. They might as well have labeled us “Wiscellaneous”

    hahaha that actually would have been a cool catergory!

    I live within easy walking distance of the Original. Like what you did very much. You know a fella with a few resources could very easily bag the W with a WordPress logo, if one was so inclined… Also, HollyWoRd is an easy stretch, as well. College pranksters have played around with the Hollywood sign for years (CalTech? UCLA? not quite certain, may be both) Congrats!

      Haha thanks for your comment Craig. Great to hear from someone who actually lives near the sign! It must be quite impressive to see it nearly every day. So I take it you can actually walk right up to it? I would have thought they’d put heaps of security cameras etc. up there!

        They probably have protected it by now, there’s some deal afoot to buy it from developers and protect it, but I’ve not followed it closely. I haven’t been up the hill in years. It’s walking distance, not a distance I walk 🙂 You can see it best from a distance, it’s pretty ramshackle up close, like looking behind the tents at the carnival. Stand back, protect your illusions, they are the best armor you have, shock absorbers for the harshness of plain fact.

    todos são bonitos mas este é o sonho americano
