What do you think about loading the OCIN logo on here?
Also, the website link isn't working.

I actually tried it already, but the black background obliterates the CIN text, and basically all the white. I actually made a new logo with non-transparent white, but I forgot to ftp it last night. I was going to use my website initially, but eventually ask Mike to host it at .

How does that look? I think it needs some work.

It looks ok on my screen, maybe just a tad grainy. Is this what you meant by "it needs some work"? Or did you mean we could use a redesign of the logo?

By the way, can you fix the link to OCIN's homepage? The one that reads "website" on the left side of the group page. It seems only the owner of the group page is allow to do editing.

Fixed. Thanks---I hadn't noticed that.

I said it needs work because it's kind of off-center in the white box, and the white box is too hard against the black background. We probably ought to put together a map segment under the OCIN logo---or a photo of some OCIN event, or a photo of the Fountain Square fountain or something, and then do a fade-to-black at the edges. I'll ask my nephew (Photoshop King) for some help.

It's weird how it picks up events from our logs and lists them, including 25-manna, which I'm not even going to---It's just on my log so I can look for online coverage.

Ah, I see what you mean re logo. Too bad the orignial transparent background doesn't work. I wonder if it'd be easier if you just change the "CIN" text to something other than black? Some photoshop work would be cool too, if your nephew has the time.

Re upcoming events, I thought it'd show all events within a certain distance of Cincinnati, but it seems to be showing whatever we have entered on our logs.
