I believe It is time for a change too.

Why not create a new group on PmWiki and publish there any ideas we
may have, write links, upload photos, create a example designs with
wiki markup and vote for the best ideas.

Then we can get enough references to think with and come up with the best idea.

A believe a new logo is also a good idea.
