    Dave, I can't find the poll page - could you post a direct link? Your link in the previous post goes to gcuk's home page, but there doesn't seem to be any mention of this poll there.

    Here you go Bill the Poll, and yes it is on G:UKs home page, I've just checked and the link is working and the poll is there, honest :unsure: .

    Brian (Dego), put it up for me, I have the same access as other visitors to the site, so when there is a problem I have to chase Brian ., who even if he does not realise it, is acting as the independent adjudicator

    You're quite right, Dave, it is there! I'm away from home, and the pc I'm using seems to be serving up out-of-date cached pages from last time I was here, which I didn't notice, so I got an old poll. Doh!

    Ok folks now we are officially "geocaching.org.uk", its time to start thinking about a logo for the site. All entrants will go in a poll, run along the same lines as the name poll format (Dependant on the No's, and a whether one Logo receives 75%), of 2 polls to pick the Site Logo.

    Submissions will be made to a email address, and all entrants will be displayed before the polls.

    Submissions of designs will open on Saturday 19th of February and run until midnight on the 5th of March. with the first poll being run as soon as possible after Monday the 7th of March ending at midnight on the 7th day.

    Things to remember when creating your submission:

    Not too many colours

    Keep it as simple as possible

    Keep it themed

    Keep it unique

    What you should be aiming for, is something which will display well on a monitor, at all resolutions. Is clear, for those with restricted sight. Is simple to copy onto signature items, for those who hand craft their own. Will look good on,site merchandise, such as T shirts, Mugs, and other items used to generate income for the site (all income generated from merchandise, will be plowed back into the site, and will not be treated as profit).

    The winning submission may be passed over to a professional Graphics Designer, to be tided up, this will in no way distract or alter the winning design, in any major way, but will be done to present a professional image.

    One thing to remember, all submissions will become the copyright of "geocaching.org.uk", until such time that a elected Management Committee (once the site is up and running, the development team, will be handing over the site, to a properly elected committee) is able to deal with the proper uses of the logo .

    So come on folks, as we have already demonstrated, this will be your own listing site, with you imput running it. So get Designing what could be your Logo.

    Ok folks here's the address to send your designs for geocaching.org.uk's Logo competition.

    geocaching.org.uk@gmail.com

    Please send your entrys as a jpeg, and keep the size to no more than 6mb. Over the next few days, I'll be making arrangements to post them on a web page. I'll post a link to it asap.

    I know that there are a lot of talented people out there, but we do not even have one entry yet, come on folks, lets see those skills at work.

    Just to up date things, I've now had 8 designs from MoonHerb, who adviced me that geocaching.org.uk is rejected by Outlook as a valid address (I use Outlook for the familys isp email address, but never checked it, as I have a yahoo address as main contact) if anyone is having problems using this address, please send entrys to mancunian@fsmail.net .

    ok folks here is a grovelling apology to those whose entrys were accidentaly missed off!

    We are very sorry and it is being rectified, as I type!

    What hapened is that gmail, for some unknown reason, nested emails and replys together, when the sites Webmaster Downloaded the emails from the gmail account, for some reason, only the very first email from each person was downloaded, meaning that 6 logos were missed. Lesson learned, and once again apologys to those who had enterys missing!
