[ppy]  since YuriyMilov made his final submission in only one color,
maybe we (as a community) can do it in two steps - choose the graphic
design first, and then deliberate on the color(s).    (06)

[ppy]  great! ... this makes good prose to go with your final design submission.    (08)

[ppy]  I am referring to a design that is rendered in 1-bit color
depth (say, just black-and-white, no greyscale even).    (010)

[ppy]  Indeed!  Since Yuri's final submission is in line art, if you
can also send a line art version of your final design submission, we
can (maybe) vote on the graphics without color first (as I suggested
above). That said, this is totally your call as to what you decide to
finally send in.    (012)

... in parallel, I will work on posting your final submissions to the
wiki page ( http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OOR_Logo_Candidates
) and put together the online form (on surveymonkey) for folks to make
their choices with.    (013)

Thanks & regards.  =ppy
