Hi Marc, all,

There was talk of making the donation banner available for an enterprise
interested in displaying the donation banner on their website.

Are we going to make a banner available for downloading for other
enterprises or individuals who would be interested in supporting
LibreOffice by displaying a banner for the fundraiser?

Yes - this should be our very next step.

I'd like to see a banner that points external people not only to the foundation, but to LibreOffice in general.

It should follow our Branding Guidelines, provide the necessary information for external people and attract them to follow the link to our page.

Christoph's summary in the wiki ( is a great starting point for this task - thank you very much.

If so, as well as
having a large banner, could we also offer a smaller banner and also a
square banner for left or right positioning on a site? A nice variety of
banners would be nice.

What do you think of:

728x90 px

468x60 px

300x250 px

180x150 px

125x125 px

With the different sizes we should probably provide different slogans:

"Join the Challenge! Help Us Funding the Foundation!"

"The Challenge: EUR 50 000 for the Foundation.
Donate now for an independent LibreOffice community."

"The LibreOffice Challenge: EUR 50 000 for the Foundation.
Donate now for an effective, efficient, transparent, and inclusive community."

(based on an off-list discussion with Christoph starting with Florian's text on the wiki pages)

The banner should contain the LibreOffice logo - I'm not quite sure if in this special case the full logo with subline "The Document Foundation" would be reasonable, even if the SC prefers external references by a logo without that line.

Different to the banner on our website I'd like to see the main color green. It's a reference to our community, and most of the other websites are not as green based as ours, so it contrasts quite well, I think.

Details in other colors (blue? orange?) could be re-used in an update of our internal banner, but this can be done later on.

We can't include the donation meter or the countdown as the banners have to be static. But when people click on them, they should be led to a "Challenge page", where this information is available in a graphic way.

I'm sorry, that I can't work on this task tonight, but perhaps someone else wants to step in?

You could make the html code available on the
challenge site somewhere

Of course - and not only the code, but the graphics as well: Websites are sometimes reluctant to link to external graphics.

I think that many on our membership would be happy to display a donation
banner on their own personal or business sites.


Best regards
