If you have a red star, you will retain all the goodness that comes with your $25 donation, but will have the option of displaying the eagle.

Blue stars will stay blue.

Dang! Let me see if it's possible to have two stars/icons.

As far as the two icon question, you could just make the icon/image available for use in signatures, which would give you a lot more options in sizing as well.

Does that mean it's a no go for the Eagle?

So think blog-badge...something you could provide those deemed worthy to use in their sig, or even just make it appear in the signatures of those worthy folks...if they have one or not. Your propensity to give up so easily depresses me, Igor.

Too bad we can't use the pink star and donate a portion to the Breast Cancer Research or something like that.

BF wouldn't be able to accomodate all manner of different donations. Sounds like this is a one time tribute to Sheldon who was intimately associated with bikes and well known on this site.

I really like the coloured eagles idea: red eagle for red star and blue eagle for blue star. Surely donations to heart disease, MS and any other charity Sheldon had backed would give enough options to everyone on BF...heart disease in particular affects almost every family.

I may consider that in October. Depends on how easy it is to do, which we won't know until we do something in memory of Sheldon.

I think the Sheldon Brown memorial eagle would be the normal red.

I would be as close to the first to sign up for one as possible. Maybe I can rig it with the people in charge?

Just waiting for the usergroups to be built. If you insist, I will pull the trigger on yours first, when the time comes.

Just be a bit careful here on the charities that Sheldon might or might not have backed. If you look through Sheldon's site (and in fact do google searches on it) you will see no reference to a favoured charity, and in fact he takes a decent old broadside at the ones that run bike-a-thons because of the negative effect they have on the image of cycling. Just because he died of a heart attack and suffered a form of MS doesn't mean he wanted people to support those charities in his memory. I feel that if there are charities that Sheldon would have preferred, they lie in the arts and culture ( in fact, the one mention of a not-for-profit charity on his website is a theatre).

I think that Brian is looking to find a Sheldon Brown approved charity, such as one which involved children and bicycles.

By the way Brian, I should have said that Sheldon Brown deserves the first Igor, and I would be happy for second.

A Multiple Sclerosis charity would seem appropriate.

Or a chainwheel, such as the one on the BF t-shirt might do too.

Perhaps my favourite, the pink star?



But smaller, of course .

How about something to do with three speed, 10 speed, 14 speed, indexed? Well, need room for singles I guess.
