Alright, no more than the occasional Libby. We have a dedicated thread to our muse for that now. LET'S, get down to business.


Guys? Hello?


Now that Libbie was rejected as a mascot of LibreOffice and has been put in the public domain, I think we should step up our game. She died for our sins, so it's just fair she ascends to goddesshood now, not as a simple software's mascot, but as the unofficial representative of the concept of the Public Domain.

Libbie represents the love for freedom and for art. She is made of paper because she represents all of humanity's works, past, present and future. Even the copyrighted ones, because art is eternal, but intellectual property is ephemeral.



Beautiful. Let's make some naked statues of he!



her* FFFFFFuck!




I'm liking your way of thinking.







You're looking for >>820668 which is the DEDICATED libbie thread



>unofficial representative of the concept of the Public Domain

I like this idea

The name fits too, Libbie = Libre



Right. Hard to think straight this late.




Man does something. God is always watching.

A gentleman's revenge is not late even after 10 years.


I believe we should continue with demands of truth about the competition and a public apology to everybody who voted and to Tyson personally.

A cool way would to have some catchy slogan.

They should feel ashamed for what they did, they should know we won't let it just go like that.

Is there literally anyone who doesn't already know about Libreoffice at this point? Is there anyone outside of imageboards or this contest whose ears this is going to reach?

Namefags are truly the worst cancer.




Why would a piece of "free" software worry about advertising itself anyways? What are they selling?

[They're selling you.



>Like it's always said Nothing as bad publicity

I never understood this meme. There are plenty of high profile examples speaking to the contrary yet vying for a negative attention is still seen to be a viable strategy. Seeking negative press is a desperation play that's employed when there's nothing to lose.

Seriously though, libbie's terrible. Under the head is just a mess of triangles. Readability should be a priority in small icon's like that, right?



Lurk for 2.4 seconds before posting.



>Readability should be a priority in small icon's like that, right?

She's not meant to be used as a small icon. She's a mascot, she's meant to be used in banners and such.



That's what Tyson was talking about, "new rules added" later. The contest's original description said nothing about wanting an "icon friendly" mascot. The icon thing was only added later at the voting stage and I'm not even sure it was a misuse of term. Just like how the no-document-foundation-logo-is-allowed rule which killed the white cockatoo. It almost looked like those new rules and description on the voting stage were precisely prepared to get rid of the cockatoo and Libbie.

And for those who really think Libbie can't be printed in small size -- have you even tried to do that before making such claim? Each of Libbie's design was made with a few triangles only, most of which are just shading on her white costume. I really can't understand where your "complicated design" argument came from.



>a few triangles

Like 30 triangles.


I admit I'm upset over Libbie losing this contest, but it's not the fact that they didn't win, it's just how non-transparent and poorly organized the contest was, it just gives an impression that it was unfair or fake even, shitting on those very few people who took this contest seriously. It just enforces the "FLOSS or Linux is for autists only" stereotype, not to mention that we might get stuck with only pajeet recolors representing libre software in the near future.



The contest was rigged from the start. Then they added bullshit rules to disqualify the most competent works. Even if they hadn't picked Libby because muh corpurate sensibilities, the cockatoo was up there. That's what pisses me off the most.



Is that fucking satanic penguin icon friendly? ALSO doesn't Tyson after making all of that reference sheets, able to design icon versions of her that'd fit perfectly what they want?





A Sega Saturn could manage that (actually it couldn't the Saturn didn't use triangles).



>actually it couldn't the Saturn didn't use triangles

Ha! I knew it! I read that somewhere years go and coulsn't find a refernce. That was partly why it was so difficult to port games to the Saturn. I love my Saturn.



The Saturn was a bitch to work with even beside that. Just have a look at the architecture sometime.

Can someone start recompiling Libreoffice's source to get rid of the Penguin and replace with Libbie?



Anon it's not that simple. If you actually want to get people to use the darn thing you gotta have a repository for each distribution (like apt, rpm, etc). Maintaining those can be time consuming.

I don't know if it's possible with the LibreOffice codebase but I think a script to replace all icons on an existing LibreOffice installation might be the better alternative.


>vote for penguin

Or why don't we rail LO enough to get not bullshit mascots?



That's ideal, but a lofty goal. For now, embarrassing the Libre Office foundation will do for a start.



If you can make a script to do that I can write you an rpm spec to include Libre Office as a dependency and put Libbie in `%post` installation.Then we just have to make it available on some git repo.




As an aside does /tech/ have it's own repo yet?



We have a few Flatpaks on TPB.




Time to fork LibreOffice and use Libbie as the mascot?



Libbie is bigger than LO now. She is the spirit of free culture and the muse of all tech.

If they have the number of total votes, then they surely must have the vote breakdown for the whole thing.

I'm going to write an email to various outlets tonight. In the meantime, keep voting for the penguin.






This is pointless, will accomplish nothing, and nobody will use a forked LibreOffice just because it has a new mascot.

For one, we don't even really know where the new mascot will show up. It might just be on the start splash, it might be only on the website, or it might infest every damn icon. We just don't know.

There's more productive things to be done.


This guy gets it. If we harangue the entire foundation, that might backfire. Unless we know more, the only party involved is the LibreOffice design team.

They could pick the 3 most highly voted ones and then do an "internal vote" to pick the final mascot.




I was messing around with that this morning. It seems possible to just make a gtk theme where we replace images we want.

Images that we choose do not have size requirements, nor need to be powers of two. You probably want to use the same size as the original though.

We can distribute it as a simple zip file in which people drop in their LO directory.



They should only if they won't spill spaghetti. They should just get to the point, and say that the owls look like they were copied/stolen. Keep it simple, and to the point.



The booru vote up to now was already rigged. By us. They can easily prove it and use that as an excuse to reject it. They're probably in these threads, we've been linked to from a bunch of places.



>we've been linked to from a bunch of places

Yeah, great job there. And I've heard it said crossposters aren't an issue.



Should we be dropping truth bombs here?



see >>821143

OMG! Ubuntu's audience are mostly just normal, passive, Ubuntu users. Know your audience. Just keep it simple and direct. Only post if you think you can do that.



Let's get real, this is what will happen. The LO guys will say that someone rigged the votes, and therefore the voting process was null, and they will probably pick the nerd octopus because that was the point. They put him around shitty clipart entries to make him stand out more in a sea of garbage so it would be the only sane option. Turns out we are insane, something they probably didn't account for, but the ending of this shitshow is still scripted.

As to why the fuck did they do a contest if they had already chosen the winner, I can think of just two options:

>a) $1000 is a pretty shitty amount of money to do this shit, but chances are they wanted to have an excuse to buy a friend a laptop with the Foundation's money

>b) They wanted to turn the popular opinion on their new mascot. A contest was a good way to make people think about their brand, and making their new mascot the result of a community process would probably make people love it more. Also, community brownie points for making them think their opinion matters

I am going for the latter.



>$1000 is a pretty shitty amount of money to do this shit, but chances are they wanted to have an excuse to buy a friend a laptop with the Foundation's money

Where is the Libre Office Foundation located, because that's illegal.



Could be both tbh. Laptop is just icing on an afterthought, but it's still a goodie someone gets at the end of the day.



see >>821143

I don't think making accusations there is a good idea

Maybe just say that the contest has been non-transparent and poorly handled, with constantly changing criterias without respect to contestants.

Or maybe don't put everything in one sentence and let multiple anons post this bit by bit.



I think their brand is shit and I hate them for what they did to Libbie.




Why are you downvoting duolingo owl? They can always remove the penguin with some bullshit excuse, and to remove two from the contest looks worse.



Sounds good.




REMEMBER, we still don't know what exactly the case is. It could be cronyism, it could be something completely different. The first step to finding out what happened is getting the vote results from the first vote.


I remember the blogpost saying that 7 winners will move on to the final voting stage, so we could have all the stolen logos be in the 7 winners.


Important information from OMG Ubuntu.

* Voting ends Dec. 17.

* The three mascots who received the last votes are eliminated.

*TDF will pick the winners from the remaining 7.

It's no longer about upvoting Perfection, but about downvoting the "best" designs and upvoting everything else. We want the LibreOffice guys to reveal this for the farce it is, and this comes from forcing the unexpected.

Do these fuckers think such a shitty voting process in which they have the last word for over 99% of the submissions is a honest community driven contest? If they just chose the easy way out by picking 7 entries, then letting the community decide over which 1% (actual percentages, I am not making up numbers) WON'T make it, it is clear they knew only the most horrible three would be dropped out of the process, and just to make sure, made most of the finalists horrible just to make sure their mascot was inside the top 5. So this is why we will run a honest counter-contest in which we will transparently decide their best entries and just proceed to downvote them to oblivion.

>But anon, they will claim the vote was rigged!

That's our win state as well. They will either have to drop the whole contest and decide not to pick a mascot for a while, or just reveal this as the fraud it is and just pick their chosen logo. That or they get stuck with Perfection, which is equally funny.

I would argue it's not about deciding over the best, but over those we think they would have chosen. The nerd octopus is an obvious "Design Team favourite", while the birds and other clipart-like silhouette logos are not since they all look the same and I guess they put all of them in there at once to make them stand out less, so even if the magenta bird is probably the second most aesthetically pleasing of the bunch, I think they expected it to lose because it looks too much like the other four hummingbirds and the pegasus. Basically, the actual question would be "if you were a corporate cocksucker latte drinking hipster normalfag who wanted to rig a contest so your friend's drawing would win, which decoys would you put around your chosen entry so it would stand out among the others"?

Remember we are assuming the winning entry will be the nerd octopus, but we have three different entries we can shut down, so choose wisely the other two just in case they are smarter than we think I doubt it considering this whole shitshow and opted to put a better entry than their chosen one just in case.

I mean, they just called

"so funny that it shouldn't be lost".

Why are the swastikas backwards?

Now that we can't waste one of the 7 spots with the penguin, we'll need to reevaluate who we think should be the ones that make it.



What I mean is he'll probably be more open than I previously thought to bringing up the issues that we're talking (arbitrary rules, possible vote manipulation, etc)

He liked Libbie too!

I hope nobody saw the first version of this post

If we still want to play their game, then making sure the octopus is last would be the best plan since they clearly want it to win.

You're a bunch of manchildren. Fucking hell, no wonder nobody takes imageboards seriously.


Now that the swastikas have shown up they can claim that the whole thing was rigged by Nazis. They'll use that excuse to select the mascot internally, and then they'll chose the nerd octopus. Attaching Libbie's name to the swastikas makes the chances of them feeling any obligation to apologize basically zero.

Good job guys.

- The fact that multiple finalists violated the rules

- The $1000~ worth of prizes at stake

Sounds good m8. I'd definitely draw attention to all of the mascots that are complete ripoffs of other mascots (like the Duolingo owl ripoff), or just recolored clipart, and highlight how those pieces of garbage got to the end over other entries. Don't focus too much on Libbie in specific, but it's probably worthwhile to point out that Tyson is a prolific artist within the FOSS community.

Crappy, but working, icons for LO.

The icons are in /usr/share/libreoffice/share/config

Just grab the .zip file of the icon theme you want to modify and decompress it in your home folder.

Inside /res/ are the icons. Just replace them with these ones, compress all the directories again with the same icon name and do a sudo mv /your/new/zip usr/share/libreoffice/share/config/iconthemename.zip




That's a user stylesheet. We should copy the idea though. /tech/ BO, how about we put Libbie in the bottom right corner?



THE FOSS COMMUNITY is cancer in so many respects though. I feel bad for him for having an ideological attachment to it, the (literal) autists and bureaucrats will never appreciate his talents and I think he is coming to understand that. Poor guy would be more appreciated doing character designs for F2P mobile games for fuck's sake.



you have to go back.




Quite a hasty generalization. He did get his work accepted for Krita. I'm sure other FOSS projects would love to have his artwork used.

Heck even I will.



He seems to have more problems at work than with his art.



To be fair, Krita's mostly staffed by artists-programmers. Although KDE is not, and KDE has accepted Konqi's redesign.

Also, while "FOSS COMMUNITY is cancer" is quite a generalization, I'd agree that software people are more competitive and abrasive than artists. I assume that artists don't have to rely on each other as often as developers and this creates less tension between people. Plus FOSS sometimes attracts people with broken egos who use ideology to claim superiority over other people.



Tyson has never been super strict when it comes to OSS. He prefers to use it, but if he needs Wangdoos to get shit to work he'll use that. Unlike, say, David Revoy, who is just a notch or two below RMS.

So that's it then. They'll choose whatever mascot they want and claim it was those nasty trolls that ruined this for everyone.



The Jewish octopus wasn't picked at random. It was clearly meant to be the winner this entire time.




Predictions as to what they're gonna choose "based on your votes"? It's the Kiketopus, isn't it?

Find the cheapest printing service you can find, and send money directly to Tyson. Cut out the middleman.



I'm pretty sure it uses electron.



Send 30% of profits to Tyson. Lets not be unrealistic.



Cut out the middleman, not become the middleman.

Order your t-shirt from some sketchy really cheap website that doesn't care about royalties, and send some (or all) of the money you save that way to Tyson. He gets more money, you spend less money.



20%? Why'd you send him 10%? I mean 5% is a bit much don't you think.






> think about it while it is in your closet because even that gives you a warm fuzzy feeling



fifty-fifty, or more like Tyson gets 50%, you get about 25%, the service that makes tshirts gets 25%.

It probably wouldn't be hard to upload something to the AUR which consists of a patch to the existing libreoffice. It could download the binary distribution and simply patch it with the new artwork before installing.

Guess im retarded and still waking up, but dont feel like writing another reply to correct it. Since there's no way to edit the post. Maybe they will get the message anyways when I'm talking about the cockatoo (or was it a parakeet?)


Seems the Reddit/Twitter crowd is starting to smell the stink in Denmark. Getting more OC from a lot of people who follow Tyson too.


BREAKING: LibreOffice Chooses Poop Emoji for New Mascot





It was posted on a Linux subreddit at one stage. They didn't seem to care much though.



That subreddit in particular likes to take itself too seriously.



Yeah. It's one of the many reasons I don't post on Reddit (or even view a lot of subs) anymore.



To be fair, the final stage was planned from the start to be like that.

I don't believe this.

Heh nice site.



I fucking know right. I've noticed pretty much all posts criticising Linux get deleted by a certain mod for "not being Linux related".

In particular there was a post from someone ranting about the lack of decent accessibility (for disabled users) software for Linux and it got deleted for that exact reason.



You mean like blind people? There's Orca.



I have the .zip with all his Libbies (Tyson's), I presume other anons can upload it to a file hoster for anybody else if he took it down.



Not quite. I think it had something to do with braille but but not 100% clear.

Don't hate the game. Hate the one who designed this unfair and unsquare game.

What would be interesting to see is whom mascot will get selected, and is there any relation to someone on their board or something.

I've created a designated dump board, feel free to drop all your lewds here.


posting in two threads for visibility




You're asking us to never make another thread.



750 posts isn't never you newfag



This discussion is going to fall dead on the floor if you don't let the thread stay somewhere on the top of the catalog, and it's going to remain on the bottom for weeks before reaching page 13.

This isn't /g/, perhaps you need to go back.



Then get the thread to 750 posts so we're forced to have a new one, you're acting like the front page is some magical place that makes threads active, when we aren't talking because there's little to talk about right now.



>just spam the thread bro

I've never seen a thread become lively again when it falls down except for some established generals that the regulars know to look up.



You have a point but you're still a fag.

There should really be a cyclical dedicated to this shit

Sounds like you're just salty you weren't part of a happening. A mod has spoken on it, and we don't need the literal duplicate /meta/ bitching thread around the catalog.







I was part of this happening though, I'm trying to say that if this is dying down spamming threads to keep it on the front page isn't going to help, especially since all the waifufaggotry is now contained to it's own specific thread to very little success but that's a diffferent argument



I rescind my page 13 comment. I was mostly worried about the mods shutting it down, but if they are OK with it then I am fine with it.

These are the startpage results for "libreoffice mascot." I'm damn sure that libbie is the most popular. If Libreoffice is acting shady about this, what else are they hiding? Fucking uninstalled.



thought you might have been the /metatech/ fag but I guess that's more likely >>822569 using the exact wording.

I dont know what more to discuss for LO until they make their next retarded move, since everythings on lockdown but it will happen so I dont see much point in stalling around, if anons arent as talkative because it's already past the limit.

libbie oc will probably keep going, but the iron has cooled down on that too and it will be a slow burn. Surprised there was even that much drawfaging for /tech/. Still need the orange libbie banner added though.



>libbie oc

I think at the very least we should re-combine the two threads, it was ok to split them at the peak of the discussion but now it seems a little pointless.



Sounds like an alright idea since the memewar against TDF is over, and Libbie is still related enough to the LO shitshow.



Posting this here since I posted in the wrong thread like a dummy.

The guy who designed the parakeet redesigned her to satisfy the new rules but was still rejected.




That looks like a cockatoo. Also don't like it much, the 5 colours don't stand out in particular. Stylistically none of them come close to Libbie.



You're right it is a cockatoo.

I don't know why my brain replace cockatoo with parakeet.
