    I see Ram's point of view, that as a club, this decision could be made as a collaboration. I also see where this was intended to start out as a competition. (We need a poll just to find out if we should collaborate or hold a contest. ;)) Still thinking on this...and learning lessons as I go. Sorry. In the meantime, let's keep the discussion to questions and not comments. Let's let the submitters make comments on only their designs. Deal?

    Since we are talking about other color options, the creator of #7 wanted to share other possible colors, meaning he's not married to the red and black either, but does note that familiarity is commonly used when changing "looks," and colors fit within that familiarity.

    And he wanted to add: While not an exact replica of the previous BRS footprint, this one is similar. It is, however, a right foot, rather than the previous left print, suggesting a step forward in the development of the BRS. It still provides some familiarity with BRS roots but is different enough to suggest some new and exciting things happening.

    The first colors, green and brown, have an "eco" look to them and the orange and blue fit the current site's color scheme.

    Doesn't playing the game mean all of that should have been in a question? Doesn't everyone like a little familiarity?

    I never cared for the old logo, it seemed like something out of the 1950's.

    If #7 wins I want a sticker on my car and a technical shirt!

    Although I appreciate your comments, A, sometimes, I seriously don't understand them. o_O

    David, the old vintage look was intentional, but now we are moving on, aren't we? :)

    You'd ask that we keep this thread to questions rather than nit-picky commentary on the colors. Then posted a comment with more colors to for us to tackle.

    I know [hangs head in shame] I can be a real smart aleck, especially when I am tired. On that note, this whole 30 weeks until the baby's born thing has me all anxious and unable to sleep. Normally I'm in bed between 9 and 10:30 pm and awake starting somewhere between 5 and 7 am... This morning I finally passed out at 4.

    I think this calls for more running. :)

    P.S. TJ, about that pm I sent you... I guess not posting in this thread didn't last long.

    As I already said previously, we can tackle the color choice later. AND I was asked to post that here on behalf of the person who created it. I haven't commented personally on any of the designs. So, again, not sure what you are meaning.

    Yes, please get some sleep, as you will need it for when the time comes. :barefoot:

    FWIW, I notice that choices 5-8 all have multiple images that are variations on the same theme. I like that. Following that idea it seems that 1-4 should be grouped as a single choice as should 9-10.

    I thought of that when I put this together (a lot), but with those that are grouped, the design does not change, only the colors. For example, the first four have slight changes to the circle, the first being a straight split, then ying yang (yin-yang) with a flipped foot, then a ying-yang (yin-yang) without a flipped foot, then a wavy split. With those that are grouped, their design is identical, except for the coloring. Hope that helps explain it.

    Take 7 and make it black and orange and you have a home run. it gives a little nod to the old school brs and the new colors take us away from it. would be good.

    I like the earth tones #7 also. I know how deeply you all care about my opinion, so I felt it only fair to share it with you. Thanks!
