I've been wondering for a long time because WordPress does not have a pet that unites and identifies the community beyond the official logo that, although pleasant, it does not manage to win the affections that a pet always lavishes.
We have only to see the rest of free software mascots that delight the users, how are you …
Not to mention the amount of merchandising that could be created with a pet that would delight users, like t-shirts, mugs, dolls, everything.
And nothing, that it occurred to me that we could pose a contest in order to create the WordPress Mascot among all the users, that surely there are many good designers.
The idea is to create a pet and a description of why we have chosen it [1 9459012]why we believe it identifies WordPress. And not to monopolize the idea I do not ask you to send it to me or anything like that but you believe it and publish it on your own blog (if you do not have it, you can send it to email@example.com ) linking to this post to keep track of trackbacks . Within, let's say, one month I do a compilation in a post with links to your post of the mascot and we do a vote among all the users .
Do you think it's a good idea ?, is it more, do you dare?
Now that I fall, this is his thing, then move it to the people of Automattic, expand it to English-speaking blogs, etc., right?
