This layout is not to be changed, I spent a lot of time to get the graphics, colors and text right that I don't want to see it broken.

If you keep the image in the layout (logo), then it isn't necessary to have a link in the sidebar. However, if you wish to remove the the image then I would appreciate it.

If you have questions, please ask in comments. I'll try my best to get to you.
