I'm not saying that at all. I was suggesting a way that it could have
been handled differently to achieve a different outcome, i.e that all
submissions that will be considered would comply with the guidelines.

Since designs that do not adhere to the guidelines are  being
discussed, then the guidelines are actually not important, are they?

However, I assume that the guidelines reflect the way in which the
logo will be used in production, so they are important after all.

I was commenting that since they are important, remediation of the
submissions is mandatory before any final vote can be taken so that
only the important aspects of the designs be considered. If the
designers do not want to re-submit, they should not be considered in
any final vote.

Compliance with the guidelines should have been enforced at the
beginning, but it was not, so it must be done now. Any other choice
seems irresponsible for the administrator of this process and unfair
to the submitters.

But again, if the guidelines are unimportant, then maintain the status quo.
