        Hey, is this the right place to ask for desing suggestions?
      • design*
      • belen
        Moin: go for it
      • someone might be able to help
      • Moin
        Thanks, I just need some ideas on colors .i have been developing an web app http://prnt.sc/ejc5q6
      • to me everything looks fine , expect the logo area.
      • what should be the preferred color in bg?
      • belen
        Moin: personally, I know nothing about colour. But there are visual designers in the channel: one of them might have some suggestions.
      • Moin
        its ok belen. thanks . Btw is it right place to talk about such things ?
      • belen
        Moin: well, the problem is that very often design problems like this one require some in depth discussions, so irc might not be the best place. But we have nothing else right now, although there are discussions going on about creating something for this type of question
      • Moin
        yes some time, it might require depth discussions.
      • its this channel open for only open source project because as of now i am not working on any open source project.
      • belen
        Moin: yes, I am afraid so. The goal of the Open Source Design group is to encourage the adoption of user-centered design practices in free and open source project.
      • If you are working on a commercial project, you will need to hire a designer ;)
      • Moin
        thanks for letting me know, Btw if in future if i decide to launch an free WordPress theme. i am sure this will be the right place.

      • belen
        bnvk: yes, I should have mentioned that. Although it didn't seem big enough for a job either.
      • it was somewhere in between :D
      • karmatosed joined the channel
      • bnvk
        yah... hrm, that's a good point. I guess why we're having that discussion about "tasks"
      • belen
        bnvk: exactly. Talking about that, what about a forum-type thing for those? Like Stack Exchange?
      • Pierre-O joined the channel
      • bnvk
        I honestly don't know- we have two ongoing threads (in Github issues) about making 1. A simple "tasks" system 2. More general discussion system
      • I'm all for granularity & nice separation of information.
      • but also it's important to realize the whole channels / separate streams of info we have- the more things people need to check and pay attention to
      • karmatosed has quit
      • belen
        bnvk: I think we all agree with that. I guess it's all about finding the right balance.
      • maxlath has quit
      • bnvk
        yah
      • I'm a fan of experimentation and empiricism
      • have ideas- execute them
      • but don't be afraid to apply an axe and kill it or refashion it
      • realitygaps
        discourse is kinda nice for discussion system
      • if a bit heavy
      • bnvk
        yah, it is
      • I'm kind of leary on "discussion" only things TBH, unless it's real time like this

        Hey my favourite design folks
      • bnvk
        FOSS groups tend to get in endless debates and not produce things
      • oh hey elioqoshi[m]
      • elioqoshi[m]
        Yeah bikeshedding is a huge underrated problem
      • evalica1 has quit

      • We gotta follow up on some Summit stuff
      • We had momentum
      • Let's not lose it
      • bnvk
        yah
      • I'm a bit stretched thin at the moment
      • and trying to accomplish a few other things which dovetail with other obligations
      • elioqoshi[m]
        Yeah, it's a collective thing I mean
      • If everyone can dedicate 1h per week for this we get it done in no time
      • So no one gets stressed or anything
      • realitygaps
        yeah hard to avoid the bikesheds
      • bnvk
        realitygaps: speaking of, did you see my question yesterday?
      • aday_ joined the channel
      • realitygaps: to you, specifically
      • realitygaps
        i think i missed it, had my client crash
      • sec
      • ah sysadmin q
      • i do some sysadmin stuff but am mostly doing development
      • are there tasks that would be useful to take up?
      • aday_ has quit
      • bnvk
        ah ok, cool
      • well, i'm hoping to setup / use a few apps and services to improve working with static sites
      • I think the time to lower the barrier to entry (using git + Github) to contribute, add, edit is needed
      • it's to the point where I think outside people don't get the direction we're trying to get to
      • maxlath joined the channel
      • an example of this is our nice Job form: http://opensourcedesign.net/jobs/job-form/
      • we saw a significant uptick in submissions with that form

      • realitygaps: does that make sense and/or sound like something you might help out with?
      • elioqoshi[m]: as per your question in issue https://github.com/opensourcedesign/opensourced... that is exactly the goal
      • elioqoshi[m]
        Perfect, so if anyone wants to get in touch with someone of us individually, that's where they can get that

      • jand_wmde has quit
      • bnvk
        mmmm, sort of
      • it can have multiple possibilities- once we have a nice form that adds structured data of "people" types... a directory page of ppl in OSD is one outcome
      • karmatosed has quit
      • elioqoshi[m]: are you thinking in terms of your "Portfolio" issue you just opened?
      • coronado101 joined the channel
      • karmatosed joined the channel
      • elioqoshi[m]
        No, that's seperate and mostly personal I guess
      • It would be cool to host your own portfolio on GitHub instead of WordPress or Behance
      • Because the "backend" would be much more aligned with open source values
      • I was wondering if there is any jekyll theme or similar which could do that
