I guess it depends on what we are looking for. Are we looking for the
best we can get, or the best of this crop of submissions. The original
rules implied that the highest vote getter among the current submissions
would win, but what if the majority does not like the highest vote
getter, and wants to have another round of refinement, and vote again?
I can not even draw stick people, so I am not entered. I also can not
contribute much from an artistic perspective beyond "I like this, I
don't like that." However, I'd be a bit disappointed to see us settle
on something if we think we can do better. I'm all for fair, but I also
think we need to consider the implications of keeping something that is
not what we really want versus trying to change the logo in another
We have rejected library submissions before, with the idea that they can
be reconsidered at a later date. Is that an option for the logo? If,
at the end of the voting, we are still unsettled, can we punt and ask
for a new contest with revised submissions?
