This is one of those "Why didn't I think of that?" moments. Great idea, Bill.

I second Bill's motion.

(We have to complete this step before voting on the wording, correct?)

Correct.
Are there any other amendments for consideration by the TBM?

Not much of a response, Bill. I'll see if I can rouse other board members regarding this matter.

Sometimes it can take a few days for people to respond.

I also think this is a good idea, and I would suggest - as a friendly amendment - that people provide sketches of proposals. I should also mention that there may be some technical difficulties. In particular, if you right click on our current logo image, your browser might show the bounds of the current logo (faint red line here):

Any changes to the image inside of that red line are relatively easy to make. I just change that image and it changes it everywhere in the forum. But resizing it is more difficult. Here's a copy of what we currently use if anyone wants to make proposed changes within its bounds:

You'll also note that the image isn't vertically centered in the gray band (it's more toward the top). When I started the forum, I tried to change that to use some of the space below and I couldn't figure out how to do that. So while it appears that there's lots of space available, it's not all easily usable.

So with those "webmaster" thoughts in mind, I invite people to submit two kinds of images:

    1. Images that fit in the exact size that I've provided above.
    2. Images that are unrestricted in size.

The first kinds (1) will be easy for me to add, and the second kinds (2) might take more work.

I vote   YES   on Bill's original motion, and I vote   YES   on the amendment I've proposed.

I vote   yes   on both counts.

Bob,

Could the Mission statement fit in the area below the other text, if it were in a small enough font?

And I would also vote   yes   on option C if it can be made to fit in the available space.

How does this look?

I had to shorten "Mission Statement" into "Mission" and "United States" to "US".

Also, I haven't experimented with extending the size of the image to the right. I may have to dig into the code to allow it to resize in width, but it might not be too hard. If I can do that, it would give us a lot more room to get what we want.

I am going to withhold my vote until I can look at these technical issues ... hopefully this weekend.
