What an original comment! Congratulations to you.


He/She was only being honest, don't like it then don't post.


No. They weren’t ‘being honest’. They took my comment from someone else’s mock and used it for this one. No one asked for you to pitch in.


Sadly, DeMarkay, it's unnecessary snippy comments such as the last sentence in your last comment here which have caused people to think you are rude. If you try to be more courteous, people would react more positively and be more receptive to your comments in future.
Guess who's big in the back time.

There is no need for a reply like that. To be honest, I'm not surprised you've been warned.

Actually I was being honest. I also liked that I could post my thoughts in as blunt a manner as you chose to use on another person's mock.

Let's have a look at what I said though...

"Very generic" - some text on a plain background, in ITV Reem, yup! generic!

"boring" - some text on a plain background, as the opener to the programme? Sounds dull to me.

"Weekend addition to the logo is a mess" - well, it is. It's just been stuck on the side, there's no contrast between the text and the background, and the logo is now offset from the centering it appears to have originally had, making it seem squished into the top left of the frame. It's not even vaguely appealing as a look, and it won't work in the other places they use the GMB logo.

And all that's before anyone gets into a discussion about why they would have a different look for the weekend.

Sounds like another case of "I think my mock is the best thing since sliced bread, give me 5 stars otherwise I'll take my ball home".

To be honest, there is nothing spectacular about the original post, all you've done is write some text and bend the word "weekend" around the logo. As above I don't quite "get" why it would even have a different look for the weekend. ITV News doesn't do that, BBC News doesn't, the only real distinction that these bulletins air at the weekend at all is that they air outside of their weekday fixed slots.

So you can dish it out to others but cannot take it when you get the same feedback?
