@hummlbach That sounds like a good idea to me. There's the hackathon coming up in Jan at the shackspace. I know everyone attending will be busy on the Telegram app, but it would be a good opportunity to leave a few stickers and whatever about and create some noise. I've sent a link to this post to marketing so lets see what can sorted for then.
Would be really a great move, if you can contact them and tell us what was the result.
I contact WhatsApp already August 6th 2015, about that concern. The only answer was a standard answer:
We apologize that we have not gotten back to you yet.

There was no other response anymore....
@3arn0wl said in Making Ubuntu Touch an easy choice:
I'm still interested, @joe, but you have to get the editing process sorted out.
Editing is usually not a problem. We have lots of people who can review and edit. It's just the writing/creating part that doesn't seem to happen very easily.
We can use pad.ubports.com , or any tool to write something, then you can send it to the marketing group, and we will edit and post etc.
If we can get enough people to form more of a team around writing, then we will put them all together. @lionelb has been doing most of it on his own in the past.
Another angle similar to that is getting local colleges/universities aware through their Computer Science Clubs (some actually have FOSS/linux clubs too). Having them cover it, and in turn the university papers, could not just bring in new people, but new volunteers to the project.
Anyway, whether it is a school paper, or local/national, press release templates are a good way to jump start that so folks don't have to "create from scratch" every single time. I wonder building something like this would be helpful in getting folks the confidence to share...essentially, a press page is a bunch of templates that makes it easier for reporters to cover it.
The press page contains a "press kit"...sometimes in the page, and in zip folders (with logos, headshots of core devs, origin story summarized, etc.)
