The more I think about it, the more I agree with Michael on this,
especially as I start to consider all the places our logo would need
to be changed (ack!). I'm not so worried about the cost if we have a
clear motive and purpose. Do we feel a change is necessary and are
we willing to make the change "across the board".. everywhere that it
will need it?
Initially I thought we were only going to be tweaking the logo to
make it more usable in certain contexts, and to add the additional
tag lines. I must have misunderstood, but it didn't sink in until we
got this spread of new logo options.
I'm not afraid of change, but I'm reluctant on this aspect.
Essentially I want to be sure that the benefit is clear to the
community and supporters. I may be convinced to give it my vote if
our rationale is clearer.
Still thinking about it...
