Wouldn't you have a Fe +2 on all corners of the wheel to make this a ferrous wheel?

JadenKale, I think this is not only very clever, but also a very cool visual. I especially like the way you executed the rust. GMV. Nice job.

I laughed for a minute straight at the pun, and I love the execution of the design. The text is a negative for me, but it GMV.

GMV, but sorry it doesn't look like it will make it into the fog. Perhaps for a resub you could put a sad robot child looking at the sign or (even sadder) a rusted robot in one of the cars.

Maybe put a turtle in one of the cars. Or anthropomorphic food. Or have a tree next to the wheel. That'd probably get more votes.


(no, I'm not serious. This is great as is, and is being sorely ignored.)

Okay.. can someone define incidental text then?

FWIW - I love this design, but when is text not "incidental?"

perhaps, but the last 'incidental text' derby was the cowboy derby and I had far more text in that one. I based my usage off of that and how I wanted to incorporate the numbers and letter symbol for iron like numbers on the carriages. So it looks like a lot, but it's not a slogan or anything.

Rather than define "incidental," which ranges widely, think of text that is "integral" to the design or message. Still it is a judgement call but in this case the text (in my judgment) is not integral to the design and is therefore incidental.
