Well I'd like to put this out there. Godfather. You were going along just fine until we let the request for different color combo's get a little out of control.
I would suggest you start this thread:
Then we will pick finalists and have a 24-48 hour vote for a winner...
Pick the finalists. Start the thread. Leave it up for 48 hours. Now here's the important part...
IGNORE ALL REQUESTS FOR CHANGES. If the post doesn't include a #1, 2, 3 or whatever then ignore it.
48 hours later, we have a new logo.
