Hi Sophie, Christoph, :-)

I think you take some things too far. I fail to see the *need* to
remove this beautiful artwork, which is a tribute to LibreOffice that
we should be proud to showcase.

We're not a corporation, we're an Open Source community project
staffed by unpaid volunteers. You don't need to get so *heavy* about

Plus, you have an approach that can give one the impression that we're
all under your orders, and that when you issue instructions then
people have to carry out what you say with no right to question or
discuss. :-D

Lighten up! Get real! ;-) Otherwise you'll find that there will be *no
more* contributors wanting to work for the project... Is that really
what you want?

The thing about the rejection of Windows screenshots was, IMO,
completely ridiculous. is *full* of Windows screenshots. *Many*
other project and sites on the Internet use screenshots taken under

In any case, Sophie, I took 250 screenshots, all under Linux, and then
uploaded them in 2 sizes, just to humor your wishes. And I will remove
the screenshot you want removed, Christoph - just to humor you.

But you need adopt a different approach to things, especially when
it's someone else's time and work, and not your own.

And I do hope that Sophie is not going to get into the habit of
jumping in and verbally duffing me up everytime I don't immediately
agree with you! :-D I didn't know we had an undeclared fifth team
member there to back you up! :-D

So, guys, please don't take all the fun out of contributing to this project. ;-)

And as for "and please upload the source data, so that anybody can
jump in"... You cheeky rogue, Christoph Noack! a) Most people who
contribute artwork to this project do not provide their *source
files*. I asked Ivan multiple times to send me his source files for
the new theme, and never got any but 2 of them, even though I sent him
my complete set of source files produced for Nikash' template! b) If
you actually logged into the site and took a look, you
would see that I already uploaded *all* my source files *days* ago! So
you are a bit out of order, my friend! :-D

Sophie, Christoph, please take a step back, take a deep breath, and
try and get things in perspective. ;-)

I know you don't really mean badly, but you do somewhat spoil the
contributor UX sometimes, with some attitudes that are rather out of
place! ;-)

Now, I'm not arguing further with you. Respond if you want, but I
won't answer you further in this thread for a couple of days, while I
get some work done by *clients who pay me*. (And I can tell you they
don't do my head in like you guys do!)

Ciao for now. :-)
