Badges, Trademarks, the States... Oh My!

So, I totally recently told you to go hog wild with badges for Sonlight. Well, I just got out of a meeting where I was informed of a very special caveat to this whole thing, and that has to do with our Registered Trademarks (remember when I mentioned those a while back?).

Since I'm not clever enough to figure this all out, I'm getting some help from our lawyers on how to make this great for everyone. If I understand it right, if we don't make a few changes to the badges out there, we could lose control of our trademarks and nefarious people could take it for nefarious purposes. So, the message for today is:

Proceed with Caution

When I know more, I'll let you all know. This isn't fun for me because I love link love from all y'all, and I don't want to stifle that in any way. I'm your biggest fan of your being a fan of Sonlight--believe you me.

So that's got me a little bummed at the moment.

I need something to cheer me up. But what?

Oh, I know!

How about I see just how bad at geography I really am!
That's bound to make me feel chipper again!

Take the States test now! It actually is pretty fun to see just how completely lost I am without Google Maps...

    Does that mean you want us to remove them for now ????

    Jana, leave them up for now. I don't think you'll need to take them down, but we may need to have them tweaked (I still don't have any details, and I'm feeling a little clueless myself <smile>).

    Remember: If you become a Sonlight Affiliate, you can freely use those images all you want without worry <smile>.

    LOL I am already an affiliate, I just haven't had time to look through all the toys. Both kids are sick. I will get to it though I promise !!

    I hope everyone gets well soon--and you don't get sick.

    When you have played with all the affiliate goodies, then I'd recommend you just use those (they'll potentially make you money anyway <smile>).

    I still haven't heard anything about the non-official badges yet, so keep going with those if you like (for now)...
