*So the schedule looks like this:*
Brainstorm ideas: Monday 21st Feb - Tuesday 22nd Feb.
Design vectors: Wednesday 23rd Feb - Thursday 24th Feb.
Decision: Friday 25th Feb.
Revisions: Saturday 26th Feb.
Finalised: Sunday 27th Feb.

Wy we have to rush on this? After some initial presentations on this List I had some Loooooong 
Discussions (FOSDEM was for me nearly only "NOACK" ;-) He is nice, but don't wan't to start a 
discussion with him, you end talking hours/days with him ;) - You should listen to him. He knows 
his stuff).
In this discussions I realized that we can't really do it like in the real world of Design and we 
shouldn't do this. Why? In the last couple of days I tried to work for Libreoffice, but with my 
studys I realized that a Day had not enough hours. I think other which are motivated to work with 
us understand this.
It's nearly impossible for me to invest so many hours on Libreoffice in this short of Time. It's an 
insane Schedule....

Never less, I love the motivations and directions in which we are heading.

My Schedule-idea is a lot slower, because we have something already in place so we can take time to 
work on the new Design motifs. It's never a good idea to hurry in an FOSS-Community and to do it 
right and for all possible aspects we should take a really slow but INTENSIV Schedule.

Everyone should present his Ideas/Wishes/Presentations on his personal Wikipage and we will present 
this ideas like that to the others. If we have this, we can discuss and "vote" for the ideas here 
on the Mailing list and make a Schedule on the Ideas we all have.
[I think the Feature Request on many sites works like this. You make a List with a little (or big) 
Presentation of every idea and the User (outside and inside) can vote on the ideas.]

If we really wan't to rush this, I think that all of my ideas will not see the light the outside of 
my head and will be presented to your eyes. This would also be dismotivating for some others here.

Places where I think we have to rethink:

- LibreOffice Product Placement Website
- Community Website
- Some specialised Marketing Pages...
- Other Graphical things (..pleas insert your places here..)

- We are a not localized Mailinglist here, so we should keep in Mind that we have to realize our 
work in a way so that the Localizer can easy Translate it in their own language. This will lead in 
an improved look for all L10N's. They won't be all the same, but like that even the L10N's without 
a Designer can use the work of the Design-Team.)


P.S.: It might be sound crazy, but like in Forums we should "install" a reward system. Like Points 
and "Titles" (They can be give them more power or only to boost our Ego's)
