So I take it no one has any opinions on the shields? If you have comments/criticism don't be shy. I'll happily develop a concept or do a final version of whatever, but ya gotta say something.

I agree with Weather Spotter in that the one on the top left is best. The only criticism I have is if Weather Spotter put that logo on his car, it might look better in pure black and white.

K, I'll make a final version then. Weather Spotter, what kind of file do you want? Illustrator, PDF? I'll do a one-color version.

Not exactly. Militias are a group of civilians training part time for military purposes.

The word is derogatory anyway so I wouldn't recommend using it. It's generally used as a term for a rabble of poorly trained civilians. The National Guard is considered a regulated militia (hopefully that gives you a hint to it's popular meaning).

In other news, pictures are nice. Probably doesn't need any words really.

That is something else entirely. Preppers are preparing for some major event or disaster. Preppers take preparedness to apocalyptic levels though. Usually involving buying a piece of property in the mild of nowhere and preparing it for extended self-sufficiency in the case of a global/national disaster.

For example if hypermilers are crazy to "normal people," Preppers are off the deep end probably living under a hill in a bunker talking to moles.

Not exactly. Militias are amateurs stepping up when the professionals can't do it. In military terms it's usually because the real armies are too small. In "normal" terms today it's just a bunch of idiots with an axe to grind. These ecomodders are doing what the professionals at the factories can easily do but won't. Using the word militia here is both funny and appropriate.

The Guard is only considered a militia by the deliberately ignorant, although it has many of the positive aspects of one.

Beautiful work, Sven7!
