I'd say unlimited contributions.  If theres too many posts, I think thats a good problem to have.  The more content the better.

As for titles, I'm a fan of latin.  ^_^  Wikipedia has a rather impressive latin phrase list:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_phrases_%28full%29

How about ab absurdo?


I'm for limiting contributors, not contributions. I think there should be a nucleus of 3-5 contributors who are not limited in the number of contributions they may make. All other contributors would contribute via invitation only. We have to devise a way of making sure a bunch of crap doesn't get posted to the blog, and limiting contributors is the best way to do it. I would vote to nominate an editor, but I think we all write well enough and are reflective enough to edit our own material. 

Ab absurdo is pretty good. I kind of like "Justices Presiding". Whatever we choose, the tone should be jocular and fun, right?

Ahh sorry about the mix up regarding contributions.  I'd say start with 4 or 5 contributers, and grow as desired.

Justices Presiding is a good title.  I think "OneL Hell" has kind of a ring to it.

We could also have a southerner only blog called "confederates in beantown"  ^_^.

yeah I think we should start with a core and then just have people who want to regularly contribute get in touch once we get to school

random title idea: "Newton's Law"

Ok I whipped up a banner graphic.  Take a look, and marvel at my photoshop skills.  I went with "Newton's Law" because it's my favorite of the titles mentioned thus far.  But of course it's all still up in the air.  I made this 950 pixels long, thinking for a desktop at 1024x768.  Is that standard these days, or are we still supposed to plan for people running at 800x600?  Anyway, you can see I like big banner graphics, but it can easily be knocked down a notch in size.



If you want my .psd to play around with my work, it's here:

What do you guys think?

don't size it for 800x600.  If someone is using a desktop of that size we don't want them reading.
