Ok, I just updated the logo again, I hope this one looks a little better.
I'm adding a section to the main (index.xml) page under 'Foundation'. It is titled "What's with the logo?". I then briefly explain the contest and how/what to do to submit entries and I'd like to list the prizes and dates when we will announce the winner. I wanted to get some feedback first.
I'm sure every TLP is different, but what is a good size for the logo?
I also assume we want 2 versions. A "logo" and a "powered by" image. Is this correct?
+1 on wanting both.
How long do we run the contest for?
Two weeks? We need to have time for creative juices to flow.
One potential "endgame" scenario for this ... I've got a session about Shale at O'Reilly Open Source on Wednesday, July 26 ... it would be fun to be able to show the winner there.
Binding votes are committers or PMC?
Committers (although at the moment that makes no difference). The only time a PMC vote should be binding is on a release.
I think we should let the community
vote and tally up those results and announce them as well as what the binding votes chose.
We definitely want to hear community votes ... my idea was that we counted community votes only on the user list (i.e. you have to subscribe to say anything :-).
Where do people submit entries? Jira? The wiki? Or simply email them in
and one of us can upload them?
IIRC, Geronimo did their logo thing with wiki submissions. That seems to be the easiest way for people to actually get involved.
Is there anything else I missed?

LOL... I have that exact same note on the internal wiki at work.
Also, notice that shale-logo.jpg is in place (or will be after the sync). We can change it to be whatever. Like what Sean mentioned, a "What's up with the logo?" with a link to the contest details or something.
What do you think?
It finally showed up, it was blank for a while and I was confused. :) Works for me, my only requirement is that it say "Shale" in it somewhere.
We should use something like shale-logo-temp.jpg for the filename, though. I'm pretty sure the Apache sites are set up to encourage caching at every possible level. Using shale-logo.jpg now, and changing the contents of the image once we choose a final logo may not work as desired. Some population out there may continue to see the old version and never know it changed.
Thanks! -- Wendy
