Thanks, zac, for getting back to me. I understand that our communication came rather late (though the reply came late too), and I also appreciate that you don't feel like under-selling it. At the same time I would really have appreciated knowing this a little in advance.
Being new to the ddg community, when I saw your logo and your enthusiasm we at the Project took for granted that it was simply happening. I'd not heard from you after having seen the prototype and all, so I assumed everything was in order, and alerted my colleagues for a great reception of the event.
This year the Cullen-logo would have been perfectly beneficial for the Cullen Project, since we are at a crucial point. By next year the project will be finished but… William Cullen will still be happy to be celebrated, I guess!
Thanks anyway for the effort and time.

Hello,

everything set for tomorrow? This is the announcement we'll put out on Facebook/newsletters as soon as we see the logo live, unless you tell me that it WILL go live for sure and I'll send it right now.

Thanks,
Luca

Celebrating William Cullen’s birthday

We have been working hard on finding new ways to celebrate Dr William Cullen’s birthday. Search engine duckduckgo have helped create a William Cullen logo for our favourite physician’s 304th! Check it out on www.duckduckgo.com A Cullen-theme home-page logo will only be available on the day (15th April 2014); if you want to view their archive of logos, including of course William Cullen’s, please visit https://duck.co/help/settings/holiday-lo...
Also do have a look at our ‘William Cullen’s Birthday’ blog-post, and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook www.facebook.com/thecullenproject and Twitter https://twitter.com/DigitalCullen

In the 'Your chat' section of the profile page there's a repetition:

"To get set up, check out directions for using the using the Pidgin client."

Best,

Hi zac,

perhaps I had to reply to your post instead of that of watermelon. Anyway, the Twitter is

https://twitter.com/DigitalCullen. And we're now friends on Facebook ;) .

Let me know if you need anything else.

Best,
Luca

PS: I'm OK with it, I think it's great. This is the link to a letter, just in case you want to use it as a background as in my demo version:



Of course, if you think that with the background will look too rubbish, ignore my suggestion.

Thanks,
Luca

Hey mwatermelon,

this is simply awesome.

I'm giving you Facebook, Twitter, and website :) .

Sorry for the stupid question: when people will click on the logo, will they be redirected to the Cullen Project website, or to a ddg search for "William Cullen"?

I can't believe this is really happening: I can't wait!

Keep me posted, whatever you need.

Thanks
Luca

Hello again,

I really love duckduckgo and I spread the word daily!
That said: I see the forum has a lively activity and members of staff often reply to bug/suggestions/ecc. I would really appreciate a reply to my post, even just for reading 'no, it's not possible - this is rubbish - just don't bother'. The Cullen Project is an important project funded by the British Arts and Humanities Research Council, and I thought that a Doodle on the eminent William Cullen would have been interesting. After all, I believe in community efforts and if every memeber brings his/her own 'two cents' perhaps we can create a more varied and interesting website as opposed as other search engines.

Anyway, with or without Cullen, keep up the hard work!

Thanks,
Luca
