Ok, here's my final submission. The text should be alot easier to read because I used Graphics Gale to finish it up. Gale is so much better for text than GIMP.
I like it!  Looks great!  :)


P.S.
I just installed a new OS and I've been re-packing it with the programs I need, so I've so busy!
This isn't Vista, is it? (badvista.org)  ???

ok One final thing,

the box with the red writing,  "or across the world"

The "or across the" is not centered over the word "world"  and I think "or across the world" needs to move down a few pixels as the "or" is very close to the top of the box.
There also seems to be a rogue character on the line with the "or".  It looks like a ";" right on the edge of the box?

To be honest I was wondering if you might get rid of the "or" and just have it say "across the board"  "across the world"  "we are one"
as the fact the phrases are in boxes and physically apart implies an "or" anyway.

Then you can center the words "across the world"  the same as you have done with "across the board"

Other than that I think its fantastic and can be considered finished.  :)

DemonFire,

I need you to upload your file or a link to your file at google.

DeM0nFiRe -

You did such an amazing job of working with the community. I was so impressed with your responsiveness and ability to include the ideas of some many other people - even a complete redirection of original concept. You stayed positive even when you lost your work due to a hardware issue. You left for brief periods, and returned, and you completed your task.

Those are excellent skills and will be useful to you in life. Thank you for contributing to Joomla! - I very much enjoy your work.

As Elin indicated, it is important to upload to Google. If you can't do so by the deadline, obviously, we have the work and will post it ourselves, but it's best if you do so.

Marty - you are wonderful to help and I appreciate your contributions and support and advice along the way. Thanks so very much.

Take care!
Amy :)
