Subject Re: [VOTE] Flex logo contest page publish [Last Detail - thoughts]

I don't really agree with Randy! Open Source is crowd or community
collaboration initiative. Open source evolves through community and the
contribution involved. Here nobody is dictating terms. You are at peace to
involve and contribute. Open source demands involvement and contribution
from the community (You mentioned it as community). You may be best logo or
graphic designer in the world unless you won't share your designs nobody is
demanding you. Hence please understand the histrionics of open source and
please be involved.
