Proposing your own Promo ideas
The Promo group has accomplished a great deal since it was formed, but there will always be new and creative ideas we have not yet thought of yet. If you have an idea that you'd like us to consider please don't hesitate to let us know!
The best way to reach the group is by joining our mailing list and/or emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tips on proposing new ideas
That said, it is worth explaining how the team works a bit in order to help you successfully pitch your idea or to get meaningful feedback.
- Please keep in mind that the team is a group of unpaid volunteers who enjoy spending their free time helping spread the word about KDE. Sometimes this means you may not get an immediate response about your idea. But don't fret, our list is quite active and someone should usually respond within a day or two.
- Again, due to the volunteer nature of the group, people may not always have time to take on a new project. When proposing your idea please know that you will need to be the one who takes the lead in making it happen. Showing up on the list and telling others that they have to make your idea into a reality for you will not work.
- Try to set concrete, achievable goals with your ideas. If your idea is too vague or seems impossible to do it is much harder to convince others to help you out.
- If you have suggestions on small tasks that a new person could work on you may add them to the Junior Jobs page, but please contact the mailing list and let us know you've done so.
Hopefully these points will help newcomers understand how best to achieve their goals for promoting KDE. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
