@ngraham will talk with Santiago to get his details. I will talk with Slimbook to get 5.16 onto his prize and give them the details so they can send it to the winner. Santiago will have to wait at least until 11th so he gets the stable version.

Can you provide any other examples? I ask because the content of this account is too far away from our posting style.

Instead of rushing in, why don't we take this as an opportunity to test run how we should judge what new tasks we should take on? When somebody comes along with a new idea, any new idea, we don't really have a protocol that helps us decide if it is a good fit. This may be a good way of practising for future cases.

Why not test at least?
Regarding the use or not of Instagram: Data that we can consider There are 1 billion active users, according to Instagram itself.
I have very little doubt that @alesonmedeiros is an honest and well-intentioned person and I do not believe he will go rogue. I also see your point of view @jriddell and I do not want @alesonmedeiros to loose interest either, but the trial period is not only about that. The trial period that we all agreed on serves several functions:

We want to figure out what we want to achieve with an Instagram account. What we are looking for is to answer the question of how (or if) it helps progress towards achieving any of Promo's long term goals. It may be that Instagram is a very useful tool for that or not useful at all. At this stage we don't know.

I'd prefer we stick to the policies we agreed on, if you don't mind.

Step 1 for the script would be to make a list of the features we want to highlight in the video. Let's brainstorm that and come up with a list here.

- when using someone else's photography as part of your wallpaper, make sure to have the permission to do so

I hope you considerpoint number 2 as well.
Respected judges @lydia, @skadinna, @ngraham, @filipf, and @GB_2, I have to insist on the "doling out advice" thing. Even if it is one pearl of wisdom at a time, they would make for great social media posts and help keep the interest high. Could you discuss this and come up with... oh, I don't know... 5 things that would help participants? If it your advice is sciency-based, like "don't combine colour X if with colour Y because they clash", or the "busy-background" thing mentioned above, much the better.

@lydia said yes, but she is travelling right now. She'll be here when judging needs to start.
Started the wikipage, although it needs the link to the forum thread. Do we know who can make a post sticky in the forums?
A possible way around that is to require project files. SVGs might be a bit of an issue, but SVGs that don't look right in Inkscape probably weren't made in Inkscape.
Some ideas for rules:

as per a conversation with @jriddell, the latest date to have a decision regarding the wallpaper would be 1st of June, so the ending date must be before that. Would, say, 48 hours be enough time for VDG to reach a final decision?
Is the VDG on board with this? Can we get an "Amen!" from their side? When we get that, I can set up an empty page we will start populating with the submissions, and then get somebody to post a sticky message to the forums.

@abetts there is a new version of the text in Promo Team Resources/Akademy/2019/Sponsors/Brochure/. It is called Promo akademy-sponsorship-brochure-2019_AB_PB_ID_KD.odt. It is very similar to the other one, but has @duffus 's corrections.

I used the text I received from Paul.
I am curious to know where the texts for this version of the brochure came from. Page 3, for example, does not show the text @skadinna and I updated and shared on Share and it contains errors that are not in last year's brochure.

Yeah. I am tied up in the annual report right now, but as soon as I get through that, sure. I'd enjoy the challenge, too.
Don't worry, @abetts. I am serious when I say the brochure is beautiful. The best yet and will be the yardstick for years to come.

I have looked over the brochure and it is beautiful. Congratulations.

@cfeck What time are you thinking of releasing?
