Out of all the submissions Libbie was the only one that looked like an actual mascot and not like something out of a late 90s clipart collection, yet it supposedly didn't make it into the top 10. I'm smelling BS here.

If they didn't want to listen to people what was the point in having a voting in the first place? So that if people didn't like the mascot they could have an excuse like "well, that's what was voted for".

No anime girl
I don't get what people saw in her. She was just some generic anime girl with not remarkable features. Then again, it's not like there was much of a competition.

Colton Bailey

People seem to be confusing a mascot with a logo or an icon.

THIS IS SOME BULLSHIT RIGGING

No Libbie
And I'm still salty about this. Tyson spent probably hours designing and drawing a beautiful mascot completely for free, and for nothing. Meanwhile some smelly Pajeet copypasted some generic clipart from Shutterstock and changed the colors so the plagiarism wouldn't get immediately found via reverse image search, and somehow that made the top 10 list.

So, say we'd also like to see the other bends of the Libbie rainbow doing lewd things. How and how much?

I caught wind of this from GS. Do I basically have it right and this whole gay mascot contest was rigged from the start?

Ian Fisher

Yes

Adam Lopez
Adam Lopez

Why? What was the point?

Hudson Anderson
Hudson Anderson

That's right faggot. They had a pretend-public-vote which was ultimately overpowered by their secret foundation team member vote. Obviously most people would vote for Libbie, yet what remained are 12 ""mascots"" no one in their right mind would vote for.

Christian Torres
Christian Torres

And two or three of the finalists turned out to be tracings? Amazing. What did our uncle make us stumble into? Was it just a scheme to get some pajeet a laptop, or was this just a publicity stunt gone bad (it better go bad).

Gabriel Roberts
Gabriel Roberts

I'm not happy about being lied to my face by some PR shitstain. How do we rub LO's face in this mess?

Zachary Roberts
Zachary Roberts

A few options:

Democratic backlash:
Bomb the comment section and contacts with displeasement about this descision.

The Lawyer's wrath
Contact shutterstock for copyright infringement if they use the shitty traced logo.

Scorched Earth:
Fork Libreoffice and create a superior version of the program stomping their version into the dustbin of software history

Elijah Stewart
Elijah Stewart

Contact shutterstock for copyright infringement
Depending on the art's terms you may actually be allowed to do what he did, assuming he bought the graphic. I do this kind of stuff all the time at work, when we need some graphic we buy stock vector graphics and modify them to our needs.

I have no idea what the law says about using it as a mascot though.

Fork Libreoffice
This is retarded beyond belief. How many of you faggots are really interested of developing a bunch of presentation and spreadsheet software? I'll tell you how many, a flat fucking 0.

Noah Foster
Noah Foster

Black Libbie for Holla Forums mascot.

WE

Juan Adams
Juan Adams

Bomb the comment section and contacts with displeasement about this descision.

We should also spam the memes we're making on their hashtag on Twatter

Contact shutterstock for copyright infringement if they use the shitty traced logo.

We'll have to hope one of the two tracings win in that case.

>Fork Libreoffice and create a superior version of the program stomping their version into the dustbin of software history

Not likely to go anywhere. Besides, I doubt we could implicate the whole LO team on this faggotry. This reeks of the PR department.

Jacob Watson

You mean blue Libbie.

Bentley Morris
Bentley Morris

There's a slim chance of convincing people to do it for free™, but don't count on it.

Commission prices can range anywhere from 5 to 100 dollarydoos per drawing depending on the artist and quality. Tumblr and Furaffinity probably best places to look for artists.

Michael Cooper

Xavier Ortiz

You'd think that over the span of 30-something years we would be bound to have at least some devs who obsess over graphic design, color theory, typography, Fitt's law etc. Why does everything have to be so shit?

This still makes the LO guys look bad. It was a pretty off chance one of them would win anyway. The bright side is that it turns out one of the hummingbirds is too close to the one from ADATA to be entirely original.

Graphic design has long been a problem in FOSS. For every Tyson Tan or David Revoy there are a million people who think THIS does the job:

Samuel Thompson
Samuel Thompson

Oh my...

Dominic Johnson
Dominic Johnson

That honestly does the job. Function is the most important thing in software. Making the screens pretty is a lesser priority that is completely optional.

Jose Jackson
Jose Jackson

I posted pic related this morning and it got deleted / censored. Why. What are they even trying to accomplish? Whoever's managing this disaster over at LO is borderline retarded.

Logan Smith
Logan Smith

It does do the job but it's only justifiable if there's no artists giving any better alternatives. Function definitely has priority but you shouldn't go as far as to say graphic design is "optional".

Logan Howard
Logan Howard

This whole shitshow has been amazing to watch. The LibreOffice team must be considering new PR guys at this point.

Brody Butler

kek, birds are some of the most boring overused animals to choose as a mascot

Christian Myers

In this case professional tard wranglers would be more appropriate.

Nicholas Lopez

They really stepped in their own mess on this. I think they're just going to try to minimize the damage. Maybe even hardly ever use whichever mascot wins until dropping it entirely.

I'd say this is one case where salt is justified.

Owen Green

Now Libbie has just as many (good) lewds as Kiki. Great job, NuMe.

Parker Bell
Parker Bell

Libbie is too similar to Kiki
but it's ok to have 5 generic as fuck hummingbirds

Charles Murphy
Charles Murphy

For the people that missed the last thread:
Shutterstock doesn't own that Penguin. It's just some generic clip art that can be found on a bunch of sites.
Also the owl "copy" isn't exactly the same.
The main problem is that these got through despite checking to see if they were different from other existing logos and other "checking" they said they did.

Anthony Davis
Anthony Davis

What do you say about your productivity suite when the visuals are from the 90s?

Oliver Gomez

There's a difference between functioning and being attractive.

Ethan Gray

Exactly. Even if these were public domain images, it would still mean they were traced, and THAT'S the problem. Libbie-chan and the other GOOD mascots lost to a bunch of trace jobs made by pajeets.

David Ward
David Ward

gg no re LibreOffice. What was purpose of voting in the first place?

Carson Myers
Carson Myers

What a farce, to think I actually gave 5 minutes of my life to go through their vote only so they can get buttblasted and ignore the people and then LIE to my face.

Well at leas the license allow libbie to get adopted to anywhere else

Adrian Miller
Adrian Miller

That's the decade old interface you twat compile the git version.
That honestly does the job. Function is the most important thing in software. Making the screens pretty is a lesser priority that is completely optional.
I agree but you have to take into account that software that's designed to be used to "normal" people needs an interface that isn't complete shit.

Henry Hughes
Henry Hughes

isnt making logos what Holla Forums is good at? why dont they treat is like its another browser fork? then theyd get a bunch of logos real quick

William Kelly

Logos can be abstract, but mascots typically need to actually look like something, which makes it easier to fuck them up.

Luis Evans

NuMe here. I may do some more but with a lot better care. The last one was a quicky while I was sleepy.

The copy machine idea is one I want to play with.

Even logos have philosophical meanings to them that rep. the brand or product. People still don't know there's an arrow in the FedEx logo.

I don't get where this idea that Libbie will just fade away is coming from. Tyson will re-use her.

Asher Reed
Asher Reed

You're missing the point, user. Tyson will occasionally make more Libbies, but he's never going to use her to the fullest extent like we could. Lets make the character more popular than she ever would have been with LO. Let's make mountains of memes with this QT goat.

Samuel Torres
Samuel Torres

Great to see Libbie back and I hope NuMe does do more lewds for her. But now what, if anything do we do with the LO shit show? What should we be focusing our collective autism on?

Jacob Barnes
Jacob Barnes

Well I guess you could "fork" the character

Not denying it's a good design that could be used for Holla Forums. I just don't know how I feel about the naming conflict.

Liam Gutierrez
Liam Gutierrez

Like I said in the previous thread, we need to get them to be transparent about how many votes each submission received. That should be our main goal.

And getting the shitty penguin to remain in the lead in the booru vote.

Isaac Harris
Isaac Harris

Would it be worth getting another thread going on halfchan? They do have more numbers, like it or not.
Think of it this way: She lives with Tyson, but she hangs out here.

Austin Cruz
Austin Cruz

The thing about the penguin is that it's even worse than the owl.

We shouldn't just focus on the booru vote. We gotta get them to disclose the actual vote numbers. I mean it's just a mascot competition. Can't they be transparent about this?

Jace Morris
Jace Morris

True. The more that has come out the worse it has made them look.

Juan Powell

I don't actually want to hurt LO, but I do want to embarrass the FUCK out of whoever's idea this stupid contest was.

Jordan Parker

Liam Cox
Liam Cox

Getting the numbers from the vote and forcing them to show that they ignored the first vote will be the best way. I mean who fucking cares enough to manipulate the vote for a mascot for a office suite for a competition where all that's at stake is like, a laptop and a drawing tablet.

I mean really why the fuck do they need to do this they could have just said "oh well we didn't want our mascot to be too similar to Krita's mascot/too anime-y" or something. And I mean I could get if that was the reason. LibreOffice does have a decent amount of corporate users who are too curmudgeonly to use something associated with THE ANNIE MAYS.

But no they gotta do this convoluted shit and piss everyone off.

WHERE ARE THE NUMBERS?

I think most people have an issue with furries in and of themselves, not necessarily any animal related character

Gavin Adams
Gavin Adams

I don't see a lot of bitching about furries on Holla Forums, and the people who do it probably don't visit this thread. This board is not a hivemind.

Wyatt Richardson
Wyatt Richardson

I think it's partly a generational thing. Oldfags like me don't care because of the cartoons we watched growing up in the early 90s. And I notice it has less of a stigma than it used to with the younger kids too.

I can only assume it has to do with how utterly cancerous the furry community was between 2000-2010-ish.

There is a very wide age range of people who use LibreOffice on a daily basis. I’m in my 40s, I dislike anime in general, and I think an anime girl is the stupidest choice possible if you’re looking to give your program a wide professional appeal.

I’m willing to bet I’m not alone. Not every LO user is a teenager. There are plenty of professionals here that would cringe at seeing an anime girl affiliated with their PROFESSIONAL program.

Holy shit

Do you believe that Libbie can be shrunken down to a very small size, say maybe an inch or two tall, and still keep the same fidelity?

Because that is what I mean by “hard to print.” Libbie is an intricate design, I’m not disparaging or even commenting on the quality of the design, I mean “Will this design be able to be printed at a very small size and still be clear and high fidelity?” With all the triangular sections, shadowing, and facial detail, I sincerely doubt it. These are factors that are key to good graphic design, to be able to render the design at *any* size and have it look just as good.

Also, put Libbie, any of her variations excluding the male render, and Kiki side-by-side and they do bear more than a passing resemblance to one another. Libbie is more angular, but beyond that, I’d say they look noticeably similar (others have pointed this out as well, so it’s not just me). The male render was not the main design either, it was a possible variant but was not chosen out of the ones given. Her base design does resemble Kiki to a significant degree.

(I did look at the artist’s full proposal, by the way, and my opinion stands. The B&W version is clearer than the full color versions, but still presents the same issues.)

No one is stopping you from liking Libbie or believing that she should’ve won, but to posit her as being a flawless design is not correct, just based on basic graphic design principles. However, your opinion of her quality is your own.

We can agree, however, that TDF/LO should decide internally versus letting this carry on.

Alright I guess that explains why the finalists are what they are pretty well.

For fuck's sake, do none of these people know the difference between a logo and a mascot? Has everyone gone autistic? Am I the one who has gone off the deep end? A mascot is not meant to be printed at a tiny size in the header of a letter, that's what the logo is for.

Also, put Libbie, any of her variations excluding the male render, and Kiki side-by-side and they do bear more than a passing resemblance to one another. Libbie is more angular, but beyond that, I’d say they look noticeably similar (others have pointed this out as well, so it’s not just me). The male render was not the main design either, it was a possible variant but was not chosen out of the ones given. Her base design does resemble Kiki to a significant degree.
The only thing Libbie has in common with Kiki that the other submissions don't is that Libbie does not look like baby's first SVG, but an actual character.

I'm 100% sure the contest is dead in the water.

Clipart pengu is #1 now, they definitely didn't plan on it but the votes are terribly skewed, so they can call the whole thing off and pick a mascot on their own. They gave up on resetting the votes or cleaning up the pajeet jokes. They're also getting fair amount of shit in the comments, saying that the voting doesn't work and that their process wasn't transparent enough. But taking in account how they handle the situation (aka silently) they won't really publish anything or own up, most likely they'll just pick the mascot they originally intended to, saying the the voting didn't work.

Has this just devolved into a waifu thread or what?

The main thing we need is a way to find out the results from the first vote. It's a simple matter of transparency from TDF/LibreOffice('s Design Team). And while there's only a laptop, drawing tablet, and some other thing at stake, that's still around over a thousand dollars total, which for a FOSS project is not an insignificant amount.

Although I'd love to know too, I think it's a futile effort. Either they're not going to release the results, or they're going to fudge the numbers. There's no way they're going to admit to rigging and lying to everybody, which is what they quite clearly did.

There is absolutely no feasible way that half of that shit made it to the fucking finals but Libbie didn't, absolutely no way. There's especially no way that somebody who's already designed mascots for several other FOSS projects didn't make it to the finals either. I mean, fuck, if they wanted it to be a believable lie, they should have at least gotten Libbie to the end, then rigged it at the last moment. Instead it's so glaringly obvious that they rigged it.

On the other hand, it is taking away a _lot_ from the actual mascot competition discussion. I mean I haven't seen a single post about the current competition or anything else in a while.

Speaking of, here's the current results. Apparently some dipshits didn't get the message, and are fucking downvoting the penguin.

The fucking SECOND I read that my mind instantly came up with some bullshit story a la The Ugly Duckling that was some dumb FOSS metaphor or something. I wish I could come up with useful stuff that fast.

I dunno about that, but I just remembered that GitHub has some dumb octopus thing, and Calamares (the installer) had some Octopus thing for a logo (the name is very close to Calamari intentionally). In addition I'm sure at least 2 or 3 other FOSS projects use an octopus, which further blows the shitty "too similar to an existing project's mascot/logo" reason the design team guy had.

The more I think about this whole thing the more the whole thing stinks to me.

At least before he maybe thought that the LO team had a legitimate reason or something. Once you realize the truth, though, you can really only come to one conclusion--that the LO team disliked your design so much, that they'd rather rig the contest in favor of clipart. I think that's the conclusion that Tyson has come to, too. I feel so bad for him.

WE CAN'T LET THIS GO SCOT FREE
Tyson loves FOSS. He made that entry fair and square, and it was all original work that he clearly put his heart into. I mean weeks of research and a month to draw. Think about that. His love of FOSS and his passion for drawing, all to be thrown out by the organizers under dubious claims of not getting enough votes, as well as last minute rules. And it's not just Tyson. Remember that beaver? It seemed original, and clearly had work put into it. There were quite a few truly original designs that, while might not have been as good or innovative as Libbie, still had effort and (some degree of) care put into them. Tyson, and the other artists who didn't get into the finals, all deserve answers. I don't usually like to do things myself, but now, I think I might just do something. I'll email the FOSS outlets I have in mind myself, and I'll make sure to make them damn good emails.

It's fucking ridiculous. What should have been a simple, uncontroversial mascot competition has turned into this. Many good artists ejected, and we're left with fucking garbage like this? What the fuck is going on behind the scenes? Why the need for all this? They could have easily said that Tyson's submission might have not been appropriate for corporate environments, or fucking ANYTHING half-believable. Instead they gave us half-baked "rules" that are violated by most of the finalists, and manipulate the shit out of the booru votes.

But we gotta do more. WE NEED TO THINK WHAT MORE WE CAN DO.

While before we laughed at the prizes, the cost adds up to over $1000, which as I said earlier, is not an insignificant amount for a FOSS project.

We have MANY reasons to fight to get the truth out. We need to think carefully about what we can do.

1. Cheer up our lad Tyson by making some OC! Maybe we could even make him a card of some sort like the cards 4meme's /v/ has made in the past.
2. Expose LO's bullshit. Unfortunately, I don't think there's really any way to get an honest response out of them. If they're willing to rig the competition and lie about why Libbie lost, then they're willing to falsify the vote results I'd bet. That being said, I think emailing the FOSS outlets like the other user suggested is a good idea. Like said, it's not really like they have much else to cover most of the time. Most of them have covered the LO mascot competition already. So, at the very least, we could put some heat on LO.
3. Crash the plane with no survivors by voting for the pengo. They want trash, they'll get trash.

ESPECIALLY considering that this isn't your grandfather's KiA. ALL the original mods left (afaik) and the post quality has gone to shit. The contest fuckery is extremely unlikely to be in any way SJW bullshit, and just normal bullshit, so screaming SJW at them won't help.

==THIS==. This is perhaps the most important thing. While I'm sure someone might link our involvement to chans, we always have the option to be polite(ish) and composed. Part of why I was hesitant to bring up email. I'm just nervous about people going overboard and flooding random Foundation volunteers with shit. (REMEMBER, this is only the Design team that's involved, I'm sure the rest of the foundation has little to do with this.

That being said I think voting for the very good and original penguin on the booru is fair game.

NOW, before someone says "MUH PR", this isn't just about us. Like I said, I don't want any of the heat going on Tyson though guilt by association. He's gotta be careful, and we should respect that.

Oh, I made that post earlier after reading that they were trying to vote for the octopus/owl, since they seem to be under the impression that it's winning organically and that's why they're voting against it. It seems like they're upset about Libbie losing as well, so I thought maybe I could get them to stop being retarded and go along with things. I guess I realize it could backfire so I deleted it. Didn't mean anything malicious by it.

Guys I think I know why he deleted some of his stuff. I think he was scared that he got rejected because of the more "mature" stuff he drew. He even deleted it from his DA and his Tumblr. He loves his work, and to think that he went and scrubbed it all just to realize that it wouldn't change things... just makes this whole thing feel even worse. I really hope he re-uploads the deleted images. I really liked trap-Kiki

I'm highly doubtful that this path will A. work B. be productive for anything more than a giggle. It'd be better to get more FOSS specific press on this.

FUCKING WHAT

I HOPE YOU'RE NOT LETTING THAT SPAGHETTI SPILL user

Reminder that some greedy poo's just saw the prize money and cut corners until we were in flatland. But Tyson clearly loved what he did and didnt enter for the prizes. I want the prize to get fucking yanked out from under these scumbuckets, this is as bad as mobile clone game scamming.

You know, it's pretty beautiful to think. If what said is true, then the shit was rigged from the start and LO probably thought the whole thing would just fly under the radar. Little did they realize how furious a bunch of autists from an Egyptian competitive ratscrew community would get over their beloved Libbie.

you were donfiddled when Tay exist,

and you have been fiddled here as well.
You were gamified.

By allowing user interaction on the promotion, word of mouth is made, and your product gets faster coverage than rumors
