Hey Bob,

As Sven says, contribute, contribute, contribute!:) (Ok maybe not so 
many times:) )
Memebers of the PR team would examine the contributions, which would in 
my mind
be under two groups, one which would be directly aimed at 
advertising/media/pr etc
and the other would be a freestyle arena..

If you send contributions to the PR group then youre work will be 
checked to see
if it adheres to the details given, i.e colors/font style etc... I am 
not the "Standards
Nazi" :) Just keeping things to spec..

The Freestyle section would have no rules, obviously the common sense 
rules. They
would propably be catagourized upon the webpage for users to download, and
probably get requests from us on alterations to spec them up for PR 
purposes if
they had the time or wished to do so.

The more and more I think about it I feel that one of the primary things 
which we need
to get sorted is a spec sheet.../me ducks a slap from Sven ;)

>Si, I think you are right on with your thinking. As a guy who has headed up several organizations, created and directed several publications, and been responsible for the PR end of all these projects, there is nothing worse than trying to make sense out of chaos, and nothing as frustrating as getting a group of people to understand the necessity and benefits of consistency. I am pretty intrigued by your 'CSS' idea for posters/fan-packs/etc. I have been checking out the artwork that I've seen posted to the list lately, and it has been pretty good. I think there is a great need for consistency in any posters and other published visual goods meant for PR. This is, of course, the essence of public relations, right? That people ought to be able to look at something and say, "Yep, that's Gentoo." And this entails more than just slapping the Gentoo G on everything, doesn't it? Just to clarify my own intentions, my question was an inquiry on whether submissions/suggestions for PR materia are generally accepted/considered/encouraged--given that they are aligned with the Gentoo [PR] philosophy and media-specific standards. I hope that helps.
