    Sheesh! As I recall - even with my aging memory - this was one of the reasons we established an "Advisory Board". LOL!

    Angry

    It seems to me the decision was made, and to me it's depressing that some of the people who seemed to approve of the design or at minimal didn't express a dislike of the design suddenly decide there is a need for changes.

    Personally, I like the colored border on the back. Since the state outline is reversed on the back, the colored border is the highlight of the back. Added color on the front might be ok (I like metal coins to look like metal), but if anyone wanted it why didn't they express this concern earlier in the 363 days since the design below was originally submitted for discussion?



    The board worked out a time line for the submissions, and had it posted online as well as in the newsletter. I don't recall as it was 100% timely, but it happened. Andy ran into a few delays which gave everyone even more time to think the design over.

    I say we run this design and if anyone is interested in a 2011 coin we should get the ball rolling on that project once this coin is ordered.
    DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!

    I just say get the coin done with what we have and if anyone in here can get it done any better than Andy has these past coins then let them have at it....sheesh!!!! I thought the coin design was decided on months ago as well.
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Sheesh is right! I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it until I'm dead: Andy has done a great job. People don't understand that a geocoin project isn't just sending a design to a manufacturer. It also includes collecting money and distributing coins, which is a HUGE job.

    Which is just my point! There should be NO further public discussion on the design. The decision was made months ago, and any discussion about possible problems with the design should be done in the Advisory Board thread.

    Personally I do not lie the black.

    Sorry, I was mistaken, I thought Rick had brought it up 2 days ago .
    He's an advisery Board Member. I thought there as an open discussion.
    Nobody posts anything untill I say something? Wierd?
    HMMMMMmmmmmmmmmm.
    Like I said before..
    If That was the chosen design,
    So Be It.

    Gotta agree with these guys. Andy has done fine, despite having to wear a target. I,for one, am looking forward to getting my first Maine Geocaching coins.

    Everyone has the right to be an idiot at times. Just don't abuse the privilege.

    Sheesh, Me Too!!!!!!
    And I don't think anyone said he did an awful job. Sheesh! Just that it took awhile.
    And I believe Sudonum said he had some things he had to do that compromised his time on the coin , Maybe that's why people offered to help him?????
    It's true, It takes alot to take on a coin project, that's why someone could of helped the poor guy out!
    Maybe , with too many people telling him what a great job he's doing and how he can handle it all, maybe he doesn't think he should ask for help. Maybe he feels it's his responsibility.
    Also, I think he had several offers of help in this Challenge, but he chose not to take any.

    Any hoo .....

    I'll take 3
