Erik, I also found that the simple name "FreeBSD" could not be used. I also took action and created "FreeBSD Users" which produced the same 2 working day review mail. Will let you know how that goes.

If that's accepted, I was thinking of also creating "FreeBSD Contributor" and "FreeBSD Committer" as well.

I've shrunken the standard logo down to sizes required by LinkedIn. Perhaps it would be nice to have separate logos for FreeBSD User, FreeBSD Contributor, and FreeBSD Committer? I've done a bit of Googling to see if I could find the custom logo font produced by Anton Gural, but no luck. Any pointers there would be appreciated. Worst case, I suppose I could find some other font that's looks reasonably nice with the logo.

If there were a LinkedIn Group for FreeBSD, I'd join it. Groups are a new thing on LinkedIn and they seem to be quite viral and good for marketing to professionals. I see many FreeBSD committers already on LinkedIn. It's likely that they'd join too. I almost created the group myself, but I'm probably not a good maintainer for it. Not that it requires much work. Somebody in Advocacy or Marketing should probably look into creating a FreeBSD group. Just a tip.

Good idea Bob. I think you just volunteered.  Thank you.

Hello Dan,

I read your conversation with Bob and I decided to take action. I received the following message from LinkedIn. The request for a new FreeBSD group for LinkedIn is currently being reviewed. Within approximately 2 working days it will be activated if everything goes well. FreeBSD could not be used as a group name so I took the liberty to give a new name.
