It was decided last time that only the council can formally decide/regulate what banners to put up. I'm only waiting for the email.

I would suggest to have the same artist who created that CSSU banner at the upper right create the elections banner if possible.

The banner is there. It looks very good and it is the same style as CSSU. From your statment I understand that I'm supposed to ping somehow SD69 and he has to contact you and everything will be done?

E.

I've sent a PM to SD69. Let us see what will happen

Thanks for the PM. I sent the banner to council more than a week ago and haven't heard any objections. So, sure I'll send an email to Nemein approving it on behalf of council for the forum and other pages.

I've added the banner on TMO. I've linked it to the candidates page: http://wiki.maemo.org/Community_Coun...e_declarations

I was going to link it to: http://maemo.org/community/council/maemo_elections/ but the details were incomplete (no links to wiki pages, TMO discussions, etc). I wish there was a better blog entry with all the details, similar to the following: http://maemo.org/community/council/m...eptember_2011/

If there's a better link, let me know.

Please use the banner I sent you. In the banner from the thread, the word "future" overlaps the other text. A minor point, but we want the banner to look good.

I brought up a proposal to 2 Nokia representatives, Quim (Qt side) and Chanse (WP side), for a contest that I would run. The details are below (from an email to them):

Quim and Chanse,

I've been brainstorming over how I can increase interest both in my new
community magazine venture (http://post404.com) as well as Nokia's platforms. I think I have a good idea.

I'd like to develop 2 articles, one called "The Case for Nokia and Qt" and
the other titled "The Case for Nokia and Windows Phone". The articles
won't be judgmental, but rather designed to stimulate productive community discussion.

I would like to offer a prize to a random commenter on each article. I
will be using a Wordpress plugin designed for such contests. Comments will be moderated: no spam allowed, and every comment posted must be on topic and move the dialog forward (as judged by post404 moderators, although you may each have input also if you like).

The prize for the Qt contest would be an N9 (if available) while the prize
for the WP contest would be a Lumia 800. I will promote this heavily and
get others to do so as well.

Note that I am comfortable writing each article, objectively, but if you
have suggestions for other writers I am open.

So... what do you both think? Will this fly? Personally I'm excited about
this idea (of course it IS mine). But I'm interested in your opinions.

Thanks,

Randall (Randy) Arnold
Nokia Developer Champion, post404 Editor in Chief
Quim politely declined to make one available directly (and I understand), but proposed I ask the council if an N9 could be allocated from the contest pool for this.

I believe that the idea I've proposed stands a good chance of getting healthy debate going and with debate comes heightened awareness and thus natural viral marketing-- which serves to rope in not just the average consumers but developers as well.

So, question to the council: acceptable?

My reply via email earlier today was:

fwiw I'm discussing device seeding activities with the Maemo/MeeGo community at the maemo.org Community list. That includes not only a code competition but also 'community awards' for other contributors profiles e.g. testers, helpful forum contributors, etc.

I rather focus all the N9 activity in that context. You proposal is interesting but opens the door to many similar requests and (at least from the N9 side) I don't see us handling that.

Then again, if you want to direct this proposal to the Maemo community (council), we will basically allocate an amount of devices for them to decide.
