Yes, but I thought maybe something with a bit more color might be appropriate... Besides, this is just a temporary solution until we get a "real" logo... :)

I'm with Max - I prefer the logos at http://www.cs.nwu.edu/~rob/gimps/, particularly the black background versions. But I've submitted my vote anyway.

I like the ones with black backgrounds, too, but that would mean we would have to use a black background for everything. That would look cool, but it would make the messages very hard to read... Besides, I think the content of the board is more important than the presentation... I'm not saying we don't need a fancy look, just that readability should be our primary concern in all decisions...

Can use the image with it's own background of course so you don't need to fill the board with goth black!

*I* like maxscribe's logo a LOT better than any of the "poll" options.
