Would this be for music visualizations, by chance? As in spectrum analyzers, etc?

I'd like to add keepassxc to the list as a Qt-based application that would strengthen our position in our privacy initiative, along with Vaults and others. Also, this article would seem timely here.

Hi all! Sorry I'm a little late to the (excellent and exciting) discussion here. I'd like to add one potential project as well, that would really fit a need within KDE Applications: Kraft. As it stands today we have the excellent Scrooge and KMyMoney for finances - and even can be used for small biz accounting. To also have an easy to use invoicing program would be extremely helpful - and also unique in the FOSS world AFAIK. Basic business software is sorely lacking in the FOSS world, it would appear.

Please, if you think Plasma default color scheme could be better, please join the KDE Visual Design Group and Plasma.

Or a hybrid. Talk about some interesting things first, then add a list like: "Further improvements in <Appname>: * Item 1 * Item 2 * Item 3".

I can be placed under 'Brigading' and 'Recruiting'. Thanks!

Would you all envision this as something that's automatically-run on first post-install boot? I like the idea of it being in Discover, so that all ultimately all package management, update, and "app store" duties are done there. Because

Awesome news!! Looking forward to the 1st official release for Falkon under the KDE umbrella. I big, heart-felt thanks to everyone who helped get this task done.

Re: stickers: Why don't we attempt to work more closely with Unix Stickers for these types of Promo things? They do give money back to KDE-E.v. Not much (of course, stickers aren't THAT expensive), but a partnership may make sense whereby we could also perhaps sell some of their swag through our "Meta store" links section, and get some cash back via their affiliate program? Also perhaps we would get some type of discount for bulk-orders to update our stock.

From all the proposals, I like the gray with yellow stripe the most. But I see a problem for this particular color combination as it is mostly gray, so it will be invisible on dark background (dark themes or even Breeze default titlebar), so maybe try to add some bright(er) background?
Maybe a press release on .org or Planet with examples of ways of showing love for KDE and Free Software in general. Depending on the options taken, write follow-up articles as needed.

Also, not sure what task this should go in, but we have the concept of "KDE Store" listed twice on the home page: once for the merch store, and one for K Get Hot New Stuff (i.e. store.kde.org) in the footer at the bottom right below. The merch store says "Visit the KDE Mega Store" and right immediately below it in the next section says "KDE Store" - the latter being the OpenDesktop site. This is likely confusing to visitors.
Do we stick with the standard "About Us", "Products", "Community", or should we experiment with different formulas ("Who We Are", "What We Make", "What We Believe In"...)?

Outstanding. FWIW like the commenter above I really like the 2-tone black and yellow one (who says everything in KDE-Land HAS to be blue? :) I also like the blue one as well, and would even encourage that one to utilize two colors as well.
Thanks for jumping in on this everyone! It's good to see movement here as Falkon needs these important changes to further move into the KDE fold.

Freedom and Privacy for your Digital Life
OR_____**Freedom and Privacy**_____
Take Control of your Digital Life
"Take Control" lets people feel empowered, especially these days when there digital life is for sale.
Please note that I'm not questioning the usefulness of a Q&A site. I'm wondering if it can end up like the forum (initially guarded, now only few projects receives answers). I was mentioning mailing lists, IM and forums to highlight that, for example, developers and many community members are already active there, if they are active, and another services may not receive enough attention.
The cost is never minimal: everything here is community driven, including forums and mailing lists (our sysadmins are volunteers too).
- hardware businesses to ship KDE's products by default?
- organizations to switch to KDE's software solutions?
Even if it has a slightly different use case than the forum, they share the same issue: the number of people able to answer. This is not to say that it can't be done, but the I think that adding more services with the same amount of people looking at them (mailing lists, forums and IM(IRC/Matrix.Telegram)) may not scale properly.

@colomar That's great to hear, Thomas! In the meantime, maybe the result of this task has lost some potential impact, given the elapsed time since the mothership's move to Gnome. However it's still a good goal to have and promote properly when the backends are all in place and working properly.

Isn't this a perfect use-case for Look and Feel packs? Showcasing a "Unity" LaFp would allow us to simultaneously promote both the Unity workflow experience to those who prefer it, and showcase the power of (ideally) an easy way to customize Plasma. There are already packs for Windows, Gnome Shell, and Unity looks (https://store.kde.org/p/1167950/) - why not include them by default? Or better, encourage @michaeltunnell to release his awesome creation to the KDE Store? Even better, polish-up and include these packs with the default Plasma install, or allow them to appear in System Settings with a 1-click install to get them up and running?

So, in partial summary, we should be monitoring various hashtags on Twitter, G+. etc.: Automotive, #showyourkde (and others...if so, which ones?). Here is a *partial* action plan summary based on the above:

Any update on this by chance?

Thanks @James. Would you use bit.ly to get click through stats?
Yes you can.
The use of URL-shorteners is mainly used for fitting a Tweet with a link into an appropriate character count. Keep in mind, I don't think anyone will mind a shortened Tweet coming from an official Twitter account with a custom domain (i.e. http://AaBbCcDd@kde.ly or similar).
Jul 10 2017
Well, I'm not sure about the 2nd part of your question. For the 1st, however, Google+ Communities can get basic information by linking their Community Page to a Google Analytics account. As for Twitter, most organizations use the tools built into whatever URL shortening service they use (i.e. bit.ly, for example). I use bit.ly, and there are both the ability to make custom domains (a likely desire in our case) and provides analytics via real-time and reporting. I do not use Mastadon, so I'll reserve comment there.

IMHO the best course of action is either "don't answer" for trolls or "point people somewhere else bugzilla/forums/maling lists" that expect "support over twitter"

I was briefly involved in the Promo team back around 2010 (at one time I managed the KDE Community Youtube Channel and helped out with a few other things). I'll gladly help out again once the preferred methods of communication are established. To me the survey makes sense so as to try to match people with their areas of strength and interest. In the meantime I'm subscribed here and can always be reached via IRC under the nick 'ronnoc'. Time to get excited about Promo again! :)
