davidc added a comment to T11717: Should KDE join the (Digital) Global Climate Strike this friday?.

I think we could at least do social media posts in support of the strike. A decision on the banner can't be made by Promo alone, and based on lack of input on the mailing list, I don't think we're going to be able to do that.

Just wanted to say thanks for this. Adding Documents is the first thing I do when I open Dolphin on a fresh install.

Great work! That yellow color always looked a bit off, especially in Breeze Light.

The turnaround time on this was amazing. This will make managing Places entries so much easier! Great work!

Okay, I was only referring to the Places section, not the entire panel.

davidc added a comment to D15739: [Places panel] Don't show Root by default.

Are you referring to the mounted device under the Devices section? I'm unaware of how to get to the root directory in a single click using Places, if the existing link is removed.

I strongly advise against this. This change goes against Plasma's brand identity and will provoke a strongly negative reaction from our core audiences.

Thanks for the update, and for tightening some of the language. The only nag I have is with the last sentence in the first paragraph.

davidc added a comment to T7878: Create or find Icon.

I think any icon might be better served reflecting the purpose of Baloo. A lot of users don't know what it does, and only ask "what's baloo?" after something goes wrong and the name shoes up in the crash log.

I think the goal of this task was to get the complete manual moved over to the docs. Currently, there is only the Quick Start guide.

Would @yurchor be willing to help me out with restarting the conversion process from the wiki to docbook? It seems like this would make the whole process easier for everyone.

The handbook relies on KHelpCenter, which always points to https://docs.kde.org/.

"File Type" is a big improvement over "File format."

I have a PR background and I'm up for writing, so count me in for those. Shouldn't everyone in promo be doing social media brigading? I can help out with the video side if needed.

Just to be sure, is the proposed schedule valid for the releases of any "product by KDE"?

davidc added a comment to T7923: Media list for press releases and announcements.

If the press channel and its member list is actively maintained, some of those people might make good additions to a Promo media list. The purpose seems very different from what I was hoping for, however. The press channel looks like a listserv that sends a weekly digest to all members. The address "kde-ev-marketing" also makes me wonder about the focus of its coverage. Hopefully someone involved can shed more light on its current status.

davidc added a comment to T7923: Media list for press releases and announcements.

There was one, but it doesn't seem to have been used lately. It would be great if anybody could dig it up. Update the information so it's current, remove people who aren't on the Linux beat anymore, and polish it up with a few new faces. It would certainly make things easier.

davidc added a comment to T7847: New website structure.

I think that the "commercial" part is not relevant for the naming. "KDE Store" is just our software store, following a known terminology.

davidc added a comment to T7847: New website structure.

The Meta Store section should be renamed "KDE gear" or "KDE Merchandise" or some similar (but perhaps more enticing) name.

@mmustac There's a website update in development. This task is just one part of it. I'm told VDG have already done their part as far as graphic design is concerned. There is still work to be done in terms of coding and the deployment of Wordpress.

Are there problems with implementation? I don't understand why this concept would not be considered an improvement to the way source selection is handled.

I realize this is one face of Oracle's cube logo, but I can't help but see the big "VM" and think VMware. I associate VirtualBox with the box shape. Am I the only one?

Thanks, @ltoscano for the quick solution to this, and for making it exportable for those who wanted the functionality. This should cut down on the number of times people like me have to ask for reminders on what's coming up.

I second @ngraham's suggestion. @abetts' design with blue-to-purple gradient is very sleek. The font is a good fit as well. That logo with a round icon seems the way to go.
