Logo Incentives

The process of creating a great logo is a lot of work. When the group forms a consensus around the right one, I want to provide a way to thank the artist for the time and effort involved.

At the next meeting, we'll take another vote to close the logo submission window or extend the submission period to the following meeting.

If we vote to close the submission window, we will then vote for a logo in the current submission pool.

At the meeting where we select a winning logo we'll have a donation box available where people can anonymously donate or not donate whatever amount they choose. Sort of like giving a tip for good service. All the donations collected at that meeting will be given to the artist who created the winning logo.

And, I'll pledge to contribute a minimum $25 personally. Discussion of this incentive idea is invited.

Gee whiz... this is a (positive) surprise

>>I'll pledge to contribute a minimum $25 personally.

This is a generous and amazingly thoughtful gesture. Let me pick up my jaw (off the floor) before I continue typing.

In the past, the average (PLEASE EMPHASIZE the word AVERAGE) Linux user I have met were schnores. (Yiddish word--you don't want to know)

You are completely redefining my arch types.

I'm glad you like the idea

Nong,

Thank you for the compliment.

The logo is really important and I want the winning artist to know that the work is appreciated. Most people like recognition and accolades. But, if a bit of money goes with it, they like recognition and accolades even better.

If anyone else wants to pledge then send me an email (use my contact form), or post it in this thread. You can be anonymous or not - your choice.
