@Flohack I don't have to motivate the people.
I don't think you can look in his eyes and say to him "no"
This new Raspberry PI ARM board seems to meet many of our "must-have" features for a good desktop experience:
I suspect this board could be The reference non-phone ARM device for our loved UT .
Take a circle in dark grey (from the Ubuntu touch color chart) put the two ears of Yumi on each side in the same color and in the center of the circle you put Ut, in white color.
And you look great...
was this solution voted ?
Aalso we could think to substitute the badge with something totally different. For example:
this avoid the whole problem...all elements in the last three/four images in the right contain only and already trademarked by ubports elements so no trolled by lawyers and opportunists risks. so the secret and restricted poll can be avoided, but imho it should be a semi-official mascote so the ubports foundation should decide if this can be openly voted
[small semi OT] I'm not so reassured after the @Flohack explanation in the Q&A 52 about that at the level of Telegram stickers for use in our groups, we are hardly likely to be sued. the stickers are not confined in a single telegram group (so there is not an "our groups" when we talk about telegram stickers) and I will not be able to tell or control what will happen after publishing them. also it is not only a problem about be sued... I (not ubport foundation) have to sign a "Trademark Licence Agreement for Ubuntu" knowing that I will infringe many points of that agreement if I put the circle of friend within the yumi stickers .
so using their trademarked symbols against the agreement would put me (and not the ubports foundation) in an indefensible and irremediable position from now till the end of the trademark (or the end of telegram) and during all that time I've to hope no one of the future Canonical ADs or owners will intend to sue me.
apart from the improbable (but still existing) sue problem, being a contributor in a free and open project (OpenStreetMap) of which use by third parties is frequently affected by attribution and license violations I'm personally against violate a licence agreement of an free and opensource project like ubuntu.[/small semi OT] so I will not publish/use anymore a yumi or Ubports logo with the circle of friend in it. it remains to understand if, how and when a decision will be made on the Yumi badge.
inspired by the question on New badge for Yumi? I have a new question:
how official choices will be made under the UBports Foundation? (aka what will be the decision chain?)
@dobey I instead find interesting hear what other developers think. In that discussion I see only your and flohack answers so it can be worthwhile to bring this in a Q&A. also the anwsers in the last discussion on the forum seems different. you say it has no benefit, flohack says only it is not a priority for the moment and given it was one of the milestone I suspect your pov is not necessarily the same with the rest of the ubports foundation developers.
