    Im not sure about that either, but probably yes, since the only reason they gave us a watermark, is for publicity of their game. I atleast dont see a reason to be reminded what game im playing when i sit and look at my private screenshot folder..  
    Anyway  its to late to sign up to it now, they are gonna announce winners the 28th

    Hi @CM_Aethon , i was hoping to get more responses from you guys before you started another screenshot contest, and the quote above just feels like you are ignoring 90% of the feedback we have given you. If you read through the comments on the Cherry Blossom screenshot contest forum post, its clear to see a lot of us did not enjoy the previous screenshot contest. 
    I made a rather long Constructive Critique  comment on the Patch Notes - April 5th, 2017, about adding a watermark to all our screenshots, that we cannot remove in settings! Forcing me and others, to use programs like Gyazo to take screenshots, to avoid the watermark ruining our personal pictures.
    I got a short response from CM_Yukimura "Thank you for your feedback, we will collect it and once we have any details from the developers we will keep you updated. We appreciate your collaboration."  
    But I'm pretty disappointed, instead of looking into this, and give an overall response to all the people upset about your winner picks for the blossom event, you start a new event, and the first thing i read is "We know a lot of you enjoyed the previous screenshot contest, so we're giving you another chance ..."   You still require us to post public on social media, and no watermark remove option in the game. I'm trying to stay positive, but it looks more and more like you value publicity of your game, rather than enjoyment for your player base some of us which enjoyed taking screenshots in game, now can't enjoy that because of a logo ruining them. 
    I suggested you make it players voting for winners in future screenshot contests, so you could avoid the negative comments, have more time to fix the important things we need improved and be in a more positive light from your community.

    Thank you very much for responding, I'm happy to get some feedback from you guys  
    I am hoping it will be possible later to turn the watermark off, since after it got implemented I am using an outside screenshot taker (Gyazo) for my screenshots, which makes it more clumsy to get the best screenshots and almost impossible catching lightning since I have to tab out click Gyazo and then drag mouse over the part of my screen i want to have a picture of.

    no problem, I personally don't feel bothered about the zodiac sign, but I understand roleplayers, I picked dragon for all my character, quickly in my logic, that sounded coolest, so sure all should be a "dragon month clan", and even tho I'm not  playing that tiny thought out in the game, there might be some people who do roleplay using their zodiacs aswell, and changing this might ruin their future characters "histories". This patch huges amount of tiny weird changes, the one bothering me was the screenshot watermark change.  
    Im curious what the reasoning is behind it all, did some in kr exploit the zodiac by picking a specific one back in the beginning of the game? do they lack more rng content ? 
    Im  just trading thoughts here,  i   dont  understand what the developers are going for here, it seems like many of these changes the developers wanted, only help reduce content, that worked perfectly fine before this patch.  
    (im reading your last comment again, i think i missunderstand again  sorry, if i understand now, havent we always been able to do that before creating our character? i did all mine dragon before creating, the game didnt suggest mine to dragon) 
    Edited the best i could, i dont understand how to change it

    Im well aware how it works outside the game  but then i dont understand your last comment "If you're given "Key" you can switch to a different sign in the character creator." and yes "It's only available when you first create your character"
    Meaning = make a character - check sign - dislike? - delete - wait 24h zzz - make new character - rinse repeat. Which isnt as positive and simple as your comment comes out as (reason i responded  )

    I have never seen the option to change my choosen zodiac sign i picked from beginning, i checked in beauty to change character looks and voices, i dont see any zodiac change option there, were do you find it, did you look in the beauty (character creator) after you made a character? because they are slightly different.

    I agree with you, we should have the options, because we are different, thats why i would like a option to turn that watermark off, and the rest who never really care taking screenshots, dont have to deside or change any settings. And about seeing the map, i linked a comment from the cherry blossom event, where Kyndragon asked @CM_Aethon  to give a respond, if its possible to deside seeing what we want on the loading screen (like just the map)    
    Im taking over 100 pictures each time i do take them, then i sit for around 30 min - 1hour sorting out so i end with around 1-5 pictures from that "theme", location, event i wanted to capture and share.

    if you read up a little bit earlier than ur comment, i very clearly got a few things to say about the watermark
    Another solution to the bombard of shitty screenshots could be them actually picking out the pretty pictures as winners, that looks like its a background made for the loading screen in bdo. Instead of, their results this last event.  (i loved the pictures won in margoria screenshot contest, difference being players voting, and who voted, cares?)

    I'm also wondering now after the patch notes, if we will continue to show the new icon that cant be removed on the screenshots (more advertising). I am hoping, they will add a option to remove the watermark completely in the future, if desired. I mentioned the new watermark on screenshots as well as reminding of this blossom events rng and lack of care, hoping there could be some responds, If you, and the rest in here, is interested in expressing your opinions on the watermarks on screenshots.  http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/137798-patch-notes-april-5th-2017/&do=findComment&comment=1908423

    I cant agree with you more!   I made it the smallest I could, most transparent, even changed the language of the logo to Japanese, just to kinda make it ignorable (not sure if that's even a word) for now I'm gonna use Gyazo to capture screenshot, gonna loose a little bit off the full screen on my pictures, but rather that, or edit/cut out the "transparent small" icon from all of my future screenshots. Beautiful game .. not really anymore if you like saving, sharing and using the screenshots for PC backgrounds.
    I do not link my BDO screenshots with people who doesn't play the game, I'm pretty sure they already know which game I'm taking the screenshot from when I'm sharing it ... will you add the ugly watermark to the already underwhelming Cherry blossom screenshot event winners pictures and in the future screenshot events? or maybe at least give a reply to the 99% of comments in that forum post disliking your desitions, about the obviously RNG, non-effort, lack of caring, picking results.

    ( @CM_Aethon )  CM_Yukimura (Edit: I saw you as the only from the team have semi responded with a like on another post here,  I tagged @CM_Aethon because  i  am not sure who got what roles here on forum ^^) does this response, mean you are one of the guys that can give us some answers on our questions about watermark/screenshots?  If we had the option to remove this watermark, i would have no reason to dislike you adding this, the problem is you are giving us no options, without asking if we actually wants it.
    I tried my best to give a constructive feedback and not a pure complaint, without explanations to my/and others reason to dislike this change, so i am really hoping you guys will take some of your time responding to this. 
    (edit: I know that you guys are already very busy, some tickets can take over a month to get responded to, so it might be better in next screenshot event to make it player voting again, so people who have the time and is interested can pick out the most liked for you. then you might also avoid the pages of negative comments in the forum after the events)
    Please add an option to disable the watermark, for people who cares about taking beautiful screenshots in this game 
    Sorry for my rather negative rant here .. but I don't even think that I am overreacting. I think a lot more than the Few posting here about the watermarks, cares.  This change, have only just messed with one of my few favorite PVE activities to do in the game, i know i can take a screenshot outside the games option, but cant you just instead add your watermark to all of your own pictures you want to advertise with? 
    Screenshot added below, showing new watermark, and my attempt to make it least noticeable:

    The "Steed" is the same as a "Courser" horse, that t8 needs to be for trying to awaken for t9 when they release it. Hope they will change the name to Courser, since the word Steed doesn't make sense, or fit for it.

    Same as horse racing (ye s im serious :P)
    If you clearly is the only fast player in the race, you either have to wait right before finish line (so the slower players can get a race seal atleast) instead of entering to actually see your real race score.  (or you can just enter and dont care about players with slower horses) most like to wait so all gets a reward.
    This weird system also do "winner takes all, else gets nothing"
    For semi-casual guilds, that maybe would find it fun trying sieges. "zero risk or effort" is very wrong to say. We are well aware we wouldnt win with maybe 30 semi geared players, we would join for the fun. But the fact is, it do cost money building for siege, it requires you went for t2 nodes or up and won it. And it somewhat also requires you give your guild abit of money afterwoods for joining in.
    Your attitude seem to be one of the problems you guys are saying sieges are dead.

    Exactly same for me, i was trying to take pictures when there was semi-dark in the day and lightning, and another picture where  i  was sitting in a blossom tree, but most of the trees make you jump through them when u try,  i  finally found a tree  i  could sit on, up at the arena in Heidel, got knocked down a few times at the arena trying to get to the tree  I love your second picture!
