    I've missed the development of these (this forum is now so busy!).

    All of the ads had things I liked about them and wish could be in the final one.

    Visually, I think the World one looks least appealing, but it was also the one I found most attention grabbing - which is the most important thing for the visuals! Does it look a bit less slickly put together? As it doesn't directly reference Science or PNAS I worry the "In fact, up to 20 million Americans are possibly carrying a ticking time bomb in their blood" could be met with a "lots of things could be true - so what?"

    I quite like both the other two as well. Maybe I like the virus one least - although it looks the nicest.

    I think I'll give the History and Planet one another look tomorrow and see if I can decide between them.

    Great work on all this.

    Thanks Esther. I can tell you, the designers put their heart and soul into these. They worked long hours for two months going through a tough fact checker, some researcher review, patient feedback, and then WP limitations.

    We have so many martyrs among us. Some of whom end up with no credit.

    Clearly, from the donations and this tireless effort, despite the bumps and frustrations, many patients truly believe in the democratic nature of this and that this type of action is long overdue.

    Let's get our message out into the public and off the couch.

    What a great effort on the part of the designers. It was hard to choose!

    Sounds like a nightmare. Thanks to all involved.

    I still can't make up my mind. I might wait for a few more comments from others before I vote.

    When does the voting end?
