@Aury88 i think, I do like the last best and I liked it even a bit more, were the 'o' in the color of the logo, not the letters.
I use my UBports Nexus 5 as a daily driver. As my UT BQ4.5 has been my first Smartphone I feel at home with the logic of the OS and don't miss the variety of apps in Android or iOS too much.
But I wished GPS would work and the connectivity of the phone and the stability of the OS were better. But as I donate only little, I can't ask for much, can't I?

RE: New badge for Yumi?
@Josele13 i do like the principle of the design as @Aury88 proposed it with 3 persons, reaching the hands.
I personally have less a problem with the basic design than with the coloring and the additional ring that in combination immediately reminded me of runes. And living in a region where people tend do abuse runes for unfriendly political codes, I rather prefer not to have a badge which makes me look like one of them.
Therefore I would prefer a badge which looks first less like a rune and secondly underlines the connection to the original design of Ubuntu.
I tried despite missing mastery in GIMP to illustrate my point by coloring the sketch of @hummlbach changing it only in two regards: linking the heads with the body and adding a colored circle. By linking the heads with the body the proposed rigid structure of lines and circles is broken and by adding a colored circle which intersects with the heads in their center a quote of the logo of ubuntu is introduced...
RE: Ubuntu Touch Q&A 47 Saturday 6th of April at 19:00 UTC
The foundation is wonderful news. If I remember correctly the foundation was not only to gain tax reduction for donations - a "Verein" would have been sufficient, but rather it was pursued to have a legal person/entity in order to enter legal contracts with partners.
So: Are there any specific plans to use the foundation to enter cooperations? (I think the topic arose around the discussion about bq devices.)
What will the cooperation change regarding the two employees of the project? Are the plans to employ more people for programming, coordinating etc. pp.?
The foundation was established in Germany - does this change anything about the structure of the project? What will be the role of the members of the board of the foundation in the project?
How will the setup of the foundation change the funding of the project?
I believe this is a huge step for ubports! Congrats to the project and a huge applause to the driving forces of this success in the community.
RE: "5 minute" tasks
go to the page of ubports on distrowatch.com and help ubports to rise among the top 100 (6 month-list visitor ranking) to be permanently present on the front page. As it is one of the most frequented sites for linux distros, permanent presence on the front page will help spread the word.
Write a review on https://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=ubports
Look for blog posts / articles on ubports and add a comment.
RE: OTA2 'killed' my phone: bq E4.5 - no wifi & no mobile
I have a similar issue for Nexus5.
Wifi works, but mobile data does not appear in the top, even tough if I pull down the top bar, I can tell that a connection has been detected.
I can't change anymore the settings for mobile internet from 2g/3g to another option. I only shows that it is working without ever finishing.
I guess it is a Christmas bug - to spend more time with the family and less with the phone.
And I realize that my technical english is limited:
Also nochmal auf Deutsch: Das mobile Internet funktioniert nicht mehr. In der Statuszeile wird nur fehlende Verbindung angezeigt, wenn man diese jedoch herunter zieht, zeigt er beständig wechselnde Verbindungen (E, H, 2G, 3G, 4G) an, ohne, dass dadurch eine Internetverbindung hergestellt wird.
Ich kann nicht mehr auswählen, ob ich eine schnelle oder eine langsame, stromsparende Internetverbindung unterwegs haben möchte. Das Telefon arbeitet, ohne dass der Kreis zu drehen aufhören würde...
RE: Branding UBports: OS name / Project Logo / Project Name
Just to add another proposal:
"Community Based Operating System for Mobile Devices" or short: CoBOSMoD
And the logo should necessarily include an 'O'
RE: Welcome to the UBports community! Introduce yourself here!
Hi, I am Nico from Germany. Ubuntu Touch was my first Smartphone OS and despite its restrictions I have no intentions of moving to Android, Windows or iOS. Therefore I was happy to see that the OS was to be continued by ubports.
I am solely a user with hardly any knowledge of programming. Therefore my support will be mostly monetary, but my thanks to those who create this is enormous.
And continuing in German as it is only directed towards other Landsleute:
Ich würde mich gerne in der Entwicklung einer festen Unterstützerstruktur für Halium/ubports und Konsorten in Deutschland beteiligen, wobei das deutsche Vereinsrecht sich hierfür gut eignet (ich kann nicht programmieren, aber dafür organisieren). Ich fände es schön, bei der Gründung eines Vereins mitzuwirken, der die Erstellung von eines freien, sicheren und kommerziell nicht genutzten Betriebssystems unterstützt (was durch die Absetzbarkeit von Spenden einfacher ist, sobald hier eine Gemeinnützigkeit anerkannt ist). Vorbild hierfür wäre der Verein von KDE.
keep up the good work
