What happened:: Recently, I called out on V. Lace for refusing to pay any participant in his design contest (see reference below). The user responded with this, a clear excuse to dodge payment. Because of the fact that one participant used a copyrighted image, he unexpectedly closed the contest to the others. I see this behavior unfit for a high-ranking member and that he deserves to be negged until prompt payment.

Reference Link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1615791.0
Amount Scammed: 0.065BTC
Payment Method: BTC
Proof of Payment: No payment from user.
Additional Notes: He previously requested proof of work which I sent thereafter (see below). I have also called to other participants for support.

To prove that I made the image,

I'll explain how I did it (with pictures). To start, here's my PS document. Notice how the layers still have effects.

Just like with any project, I started with a gradient of red to give it that Christmas feel.

I then added a simplistic cup with hot cocoa, also associated with Christmas. I did this by overlaying circles of white, gray and dark and light brown to create shadows.

Because it still seemed plain, I decided to add foam to the hot cocoa,

I also added Satin and Shadow to maintain the texture.

That's basically it. I hope my entry is enough to win the contest. Also, upon receiving the prize, I will forward the .PSD file, giving you rights to edit my work.

You can find the compiled step-by-step images here.

Who won the design contest? There was no more prior communication between the participants and you, leading to speculation that you have cheated us through the contest.

Sorry you wasted your time on his fake contest.  Next time make sure they have the funds in an escrow before doing any work.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

Since you locked the thread ,I'm cross posting it here
I was away from the keyboard and couldn't reply earlier.I like it how you want to flair things up by sending this PM.
go answer the question you got involved so you can boost post your sig right?
I will answer it for you anyway.

no I did not pay people anyone or rewarded anyone because the one I wanted to reward used copyrighted material.  Why should I pay for that?  I said in the contest no copying!
Why are you arguing on that with me ? Please make this clear to Vod since he is the one who tagged you.You never cared to post on that scam accusation thread until a few minutes back.I was just trying to explain how things work around forum.

oh and stop boost posting your sig.  Maybe Ill neg you for that
You should report it to may campaign :manager ) And leaving negative feedback's its totally upto you man.I don't know how many people will take you seriously.

I've been in your position before, having a scam accusation posted up against me, so I won't try retaliating against any of your comments.

In response to your copyrighted material claim, I would emphasize the fact that my work is not, in any way, another person's property. It was an original card created by me.

Therefore if you claim that it is copyrighted and you have no proof of such, you have no reason to refuse payment. If you find my work on any other website though, please send it to me so that I can have it(the website) taken down.

When hosting a contest, you are liable to choose at least one winner. It was a waste of time on our part that you have suspended the contest two months after we delivered our work.

EDIT: I do not require you to pay me, but I am willing to drop charges if every other designer in the contest agrees so.

yeah you have alot of them GL. I have proof of many photos are in so copyrighted and one of them are already on the thread.  If I have to reward someone I dont mind, but I still wont use the card so this was a waste of my time and money.  Again I do not plan to use any of the photos, so after this post, I dont give a rat ass.
If you would please post proof of my work being copyrighted, I am more than willing to take at look at it.

Anyway, even though I have only your word that you wouldn't use my design, I am willing to accept that this was a failure in my part for failing to ask for an escrow before continuing work. And having said so, I retract this complaint and instead, I would only wish for neutral feedback stating of this incident.
