Thanks for the input/feedback/flames. A few quick comments (I'm not
supposed to be working today but here I am):

1. I posted about the process (Marketing Team to whittle down the list,
everyone invited to help) and no one complained. After that process, some
folks (who didn't volunteer to help) didn't like the results. You had your
chance, tough luck. If y'all really don't like the winner, we can always
have a vote of the membership and start another logo contest. We have an
official meeting once a quarter and you can always add agenda items. Or
people can call for a special meeting. It's all in the Bylaws.

2. Yes, memberbot was down for a while -- seems to have crashed after I
crashed last night. It's back up now and you should be able to vote. If
you can't vote, poke me off-list.

3. No, we're not changing the voting process now for write-in votes and so
on. We don't change voting processes while voting is going on, as the
results cannot be trusted and some folks want to vote over again and it's
a royal pain for no significant gain.

Sorry for not being more understanding, but I'm *tired*.

Keep those cards and letters coming! ;)
