here are my thoughts about this...
Should we have a think about Fedora maybe getting an animal mascot?
I would not recommend it, because...
have a great logo at the moment but I think people can relate more to
animals and it might give the project a more friendly feel?
I thought our 4F's
has a "Friends" in it. That should work so far well...
of thing has proven successful for a certain kernel as well as
distributions such as SuSE.
Another F stands for First ... we would not be the
First who uses an
We could have Sean the turtle. Why? Because I have a turtle named
) and I think someone could make a
nice SVG logo out of a turtle; plus, they would make good cuddly toys
which is good for merchandise.
... and besides that what purpose has that specific
animal? What could
be associated with that animal? I think "slow" and "can be old" would
not fit within Fedora ...
I just thought I would mention it, what do you think?
It maybe at some circumstances worth an idea to make several for one
specific event and THEN see how it would work. But I would feel more
comfortable with a Unique Toy or so. The "people" someone else mentioend
would be more interresting I think.
It also would be very difficult to establish a "new" mascote, becuase we
allready established the "f" - Logo very well. Maybe we could think of
what we could do with THAT thing...
