oh I see. Well I am not sure, if i can update/create any graphics. I
will update if I can one soon :)

In my opinion, the artwork itself can be used the same for both badges
and countdown banners. The only difference is that the countdown banner
has a number superimposed on it that changes daily.

Shayon, perhaps you can look at the code that Pascal (yaloki) developed
for our past countdowns and see if it can be enhanced to support three
banners in sliding door effect? This would be a much more permanent and
long-lasting contribution as we'll undoubtedly have many more events to
countdown as we continue to grow as a community.

E.g., we're not counting down and drawing attention to the Greek
openSUSE Camp or COSCUP-openSUSE. That can be remedied with more
effective countdown software.

Actually both. I'm ok and looking for simple "going to" badge. Bryan
is thinking about something bigger - countdown. So whichever we will
get is fine :-D

Hi there,

I would love to help here. But I am not sure if we are looking for
badges or countdown banners ?
To my understanding we are looking for banners to go on the
countdown site ?

as openSUSE Conference is getting closer (and openSUSE Summit
more), it would be nice to have something like "I'm going to
or "I'm going to FUDCON"[2] badge so people can put it on
their blogs
and promote our conference (or all of them) Anybody wants to
something like that? Both openSUSE specific and generic
awesome one will be welcome ;-)


We slso should be having countdown banners. The problem is we
three major things going on in the same general time period:

1. openSUSE 12.2 Release expected for September 4
2. openSUSE Summit September 21-23
3. openSUSE Conference October 20-23

All three really should have their banners posted now to begin
promotional blitz. But we don't typically run three banners.
Would be
nice if there was a way the banners could rotate in sliding
But I don't think our current countdown software supports

Thoughts anyone?
