Spokes logo –  colour pdf   B/W pdf   colour jpg   B/W jpg   Notes…

  • If the logo is being printed at a very large size, the pdf will remain completely sharp whereas the edges of the jpg may get a bit grainy
  • The colours of the jpg seem slightly richer, but if you will be getting the logo printed don’t anyway expect the shades to reproduce exactly, whether you use the pdf or the jpg.

Letter to new and renewed members [pdf 177k]

Spokes shared online storage

  • Agreed as at December 2019
  • Important spokes files should in general be permanently stored on Spokes space (with passwords and permissions as appropriate – in case anyone with material on their home PC gets run over by a bus etc). Obviously people will tend to do current work on home PCs.

  • New arrangements…

    Storage location


    Google Drive


    Type of content

    Internal, confidential or not intended for outside access

    General Spokes use; e.g. documents being developed

    Public documents e.g. final versions of submissions

    Intended main users

    Relevant individuals only

    Active members, particularly group members


    Main top level folders (initially)

    Databases; maps; office

    To be decided, possibly include: Graphics; Planning

    Documents\submissions; Documents\advice

  • Important to ensure storage is organised with clear structure – e.g. top level folders as above, then suitable carefully thought-out lower level folders.

  • A Dropbox account is owned by an email account, and Rosie has set this up under Spokes email address. Clair databases & office files now moved there. Maps files awaited. Same people as now retaining access by being given permission to access relevant folders. Rosie and Dave have the password to access the entire spokes dropbox account.

  • Google drive requires a google account – Martin has set up spokeslothian@gmail.com and is creating folders for Planning and for Graphics. Rosie and Martin to discuss how to set up the account and structure it further. Currently much planning group material is on Martin’s personal google drive, but not very structured. Rosie also to store spokes pictures here, intended primarily for access by anyone within spokes.

  • Website – public-access documents already reasonably structured within the two folders in table above.
