I think that is a very good idea but I think we must be very careful about how it is administered and it musn't turn into an "RIP page" for the loss of life which has prompted it. I have made a basic effort here: https://www.facebook.com/WearYourKillCord putting together a few articles and that is about it. Please could we as a community compose an appropriate wall comment, I was thinking something along the lines of why it is important, the reasons behind it etc. What do you think?

If anyone has a good picture for the cover picture that would good, likewise any PM contributions gratefully appreciated. If anyone is interested in being made an admin on the facebook page then I am also happy to do that, it needs to be community led since we are obviously quite a significant community, especially if a few from the dark side can be convinced to join.

Perhaps the group should also have a general purpose of furthering the debate, if it is widely enough publicised, then many more people will find information there and be able to add their thoughts and ideas as we all have done here

I suggest you keep it single-message with the purpose of getting people to use their kill cords.

There may well be an opportunity to design something better in due course, but don't let that be a distraction.

PS This thread is about t-shirts

Trouble is no one will see it as your life jacket will cover it up, I have a sublimation printer and heat press, I could do some flags!
