Just dropping a quick email to say hello to the team and to see what's going on and if there is anything I can help with. Would be nice to become part of the team.
Main skills are in product and interactive design, examples of which can be found on my website http://itsmattallen.co.uk.
If there is anything anyone needs a hand with at the moment or if there is stuff in the pipeline coming up let me know. I have checked out the design tasks list but was unsure what's been done and what hasn't as some stuff that I've seen on the wiki finished is still in the list as unassigned so wasn't sure how it all works, so just thought I'd drop you all a line.
Based in the UK so will try and pop into the IRC one evening this week.
Digital Strategist. Design, Interactivity & Photography.
This was sent from my magical futuristic communication device using invisible waves of awesomeness. I have fat thumbs, so I apologise for any spelling or autocorrection errors.

Hello! I'm Nick, I would like to be a part of Fedora Design Team.
I'm 21, a student studying Computer Graphics and Multimedia Technology.
I could help with designs, 3D still images, and 3D animation. I spend my
free time by doing arts.
I'm new to Fedora. I use Gimp, Inkscape, Blender, Openshot, and QCAD.
I'd like to raise awareness that I am working on the following ticket:
After discussion on the fedora-apps IRC I have been recommended to
create a prototype and send it over to both design-team and
I will be creating the menu bar in vanilla CSS and HTML without any
framework to start with, as it was made clear during the IRC
discussion that there are some politics on which is favourable.
Of-course as this is also Fedora wise, creating a unanimous addition
I will follow this email up shortly with the prototype, however could
I receive any information, suggestions and or ideas on this ticket.

So we actually want to consider the case where:
* Joe takes a pictures and puts it on flicker under CC-BY-SA
* Jane sees the picture and likes it a lot
* Jane wants to submit it to nuancier
* Jane does not want to create a FAS account
* Jane asks Dave to upload the picture taken by Joe for her
Who should get the badge then? Joe, who took the picture? Jane, who saw and
liked the picture and thought it would make a good wallpaper for Fedora? Dave
who agreed with Jane and actually did the work?
And what if Jane gave the idea to Johan that knew someone in the Fedora
community and thus asked Gustave who could submit the artwork and Gustave too
busy told Johan that Dave should be able to?
I mean, we can probably make it as complex as we want, but at the end I think
the simpler the better:
* author: the person that made the artwork
* submiter: the person that submitted the artwork
Note:: To submit atm one still has to be CLA+1 (same restriction as for voting)

Then the titles becomes "Unicorn rocks pandas-by-mizmo"? And we display it as

The current wiki pages pretty much says that any licenses from this page is
fine, that's why I went for the text field instead of the drop-down list.
But I'm fine only allowing these 5 licenses if that's what we want

Fixed using drop-down list, no default and no license is not a valid choice :)

Well that's the information that will be given to the submiter, so it has to be
something "nice" and self-explanatory, "Images contains a brand" is a valid
reason to reject a submission :)
