Sounds good.  I'll try to find time sometime today (unless someone else
wants to) to:

- Add some wording about desired submissions and that partial
submissions and logo concepts will be accepted.  Should this come with a
commitment from the submitter to complete the concept, or will we be
able to round up an internal designer or two to help?
- Add some text about the logo supporting one or two-colour print
- Add requirement for logos to be completely original
- Change screening text to "A short list of submissions will be selected
for a general vote/poll."
- Make WebCom break ties
- Move legalese to the bottom, with general parameters staying at the

I agree with Fred that a promising design that might not meet all
requirements, but could be completed after the fact should still be
considered.  If a design is good, it isn't that hard to complete the
various versions after the fact.

BTW, I had high hopes for what Fred might have submitted.  In fact I
think it may be challenging to get a significant number of high quality
submissions.  I guess widely advertising the contest, and giving some
time for people to work on it are key.
