I mean, I don't currently do gift baskets, but you know... it's such a peculiar idea, that I just HAVE to think about what a gift basket from a #FreeSoftware programmer would be.

Code?

Stickers?

Something else?

@doctormo Aren't stickers mandatory already? (plus I have this free spot on my laptop for a nice sticker, isn't that an incredible coincidence?) 😇

That said, I would go for a dedicated splash screen (+ the already mentioned mandatory sticker, of course) 😋

@doctormo I was answering your question re what a dev gift basket could contain. But, if I was to get an Inkscape sticker, I would proudly put it on my laptop.

Beside a browser, LibreOffice and, more recently, Emacs, Inkscape is one of my most used app & one that convinced me I could switch to GNU/Linux.

(can't contribute code back or time either, but I made a donation and it may also be possible I'm one of your Patreon, albeit under a different name than this one 😉)

@yaglb Ah well, which sticker would you go for, if you could choose?

The default trademark, one of the drink themed stickers, one of the about screen themed stickers or something else?

@doctormo Depends the intention when using the sticker. I would go for the official icon because it seems to me the most efficient way to promote the Inkscape 'brand' but I have a soft spot for brightly colored stuff too. So, I really don't know ;)

@yaglb

This is the generic sticker from Inkscape. It's aluminium (aluminum)

@doctormo I am fine with either aluminium or aluminum worry not, I am French :P

(and it seems to look nice, btw)

@doctormo Stickers aside, I take the opportunity to tell you that, as a user, I think each release has been so much better—and what I see coming for the next releases looks so promising. You're all doing an impressive job, thx.

@yaglb Thanks Yal!

All I need now, is to reach a million Inkscape eyeballs to get some more support and make this damn thing sustainable! Ah if only I knew some celebrities! 😅

@doctormo I know none, alas. But what you need is a producer, or screenplay writer, and have Inkscape featured in a scene in one of those Netflix/Amazon series—the hero(in), saving the day using Inkscape, drawing some cool stuff, and that dude passing by that goes, like 'hey, what's that cool app you're using?' and the other looking lovingly at the screen 'This? But this is Inkscape. Don't you know it?'. *Bam* overnight planetary recognition 😋

@yaglb It should be in one of the new marvel movies. Maybe Iron Lad can make his first suite in Inkscape and a CNC machine.
