Pitchfork Coin: Front Side, Bottom Text
What should we put at the bottom of the front of the coin?

You forgot to add, "Vengeance Fleet" as an option.

I also don't think that "The Meek May Inherit the Earth, But The Rest Of Us Are Going To Orion" will fit on the bottom below "Operation Pitchfork".  I think this text option can only live on the rear of the coin, wrapping all around.

That's probably true, but I wanted to at least include it since it's been mentioned a couple of times. I figured vengence fleet was going to be one of the top text options on the back

Yeah it's what I'd go for on the back, aside from the meek-bold sentence.

Yeah, I was already considering making that swap when I was working on the skyline, it just seemed right.

Yeah, if the back ends up being the skyline I think that's going to be the popular text

I don't like Never Forgive Never Forget because it rings too close to real life military for me.

What about "Operation Pitchfork"?

Get out there and Fork'em lol I dunno

"Operation Pitchfork" is what is going on the top front of the coin.

I'm thinking the same thing here. You might want to edit the poll.

If we were willing to pay a bit more we could get that and one of the dates on the edge of the coin. I think that would look rather nice, though it would add an extra $75.00 to be split up between everyone and a bit to the price per coin.

We have a very long time to come to a mutually agreeable coin.

I think we can settle on one eventually.

I'm thinking we'll want to find a way to get the dates onto the coin one way or another, so they may not even end up as a logo around the edge of the coin. This poll may actually be a bit premature until the designs are finished.

part of the reason for the poll was to assist with the design.

Atm it looks like a lot of people like the silhouette and the meek shall inherit the earth, but as pointed out earlier it's probably too long for the front. It would go really well paired with the silhouette though on the back I think.

So now I'm thinking that on the front we have the pitchfork image from salamander that austin modeled with operation pitchfork on top and the date in the bottom.
The back would have the silhouette image with "The Meek May Inherit the Earth" on top and "But the Rest Of Us Are Going To Orion" on bottom... Thoughts?

Which pitchfork image? As far as I'm aware there's the the one I currently have modeled, which to the best of my knowledge is from Supremacy (if I'm wrong please correct me, I don't like not giving credit to the right people). And the crossed pitchforks, which (again to the best of my knowledge) was made by John Sheppard.

The one from salamander. I'm fairly certain he was the original designer of it :)

Now that took a while to find. It was indeed Supremacy that designed the emblem, the image was removed from the original post so I linked one that's quoting the original.

Now with 2 rings of text in the coin (http://operationpitchfork.com/forums/index.php?topic=345.msg2288#msg2288) I think the poll might have to be re-done. Only 12 people have voted so I'm sure it's not a biggie.

To a limit, the top text on the back has to be Armitage nothing else makes sense . My preference would be; from top to bottom.

Vengeance Fleet
Armitage
In game date
Never forgive, Never forget

I just think that it delivers the most powerful message when taken together.
