using logos for Whonix discourse forum categories


#1

one of the good features of discourse that i saw is that u can add pic beside the name of the category.

for example category:- Qubes and the logo of qubes r nearby each other.

what do u think good one to add?


#2

also if u saw inside discourse helping forum there is an option u can tick it :white_check_mark: called “this post or answer solved my problem” or something like this. can we add it to our forum ? it will help/ease the users and developers to know the exact correct solution.

Sounds good! Such small graphics really help speed up navigate.

If you’re up for it, please suggest images per category. Then we must
see that all those images are [nearly] same size. But perhaps discourse
will automagically keep care of this, so let’s worry abut that when have
found pictures.

I would like to use common for Qubes, KVM, VirtualBox. The ones we’re
already using in the wiki.

Problem is, I am not sure about licensing. The pictures need to be under
a Free [as in speech] license or we at least need permission to use them
for that purpose.

Want to work on this?

well im not sure about this , but licensing on pictures ? we wont Photoshop the pictures we will just copy/paste them.

Want to work on this?

yeah sure why not. but seems i dont have the permission to modify the category name/field or i dunno how to do that in discourse. do know how ? but i will check now.


#5

Did you see some other discourse based forum yet that was using such category pictures? Any link / example?

Even copy/paste can be forbidden by copyright.

Once you click on a category, left from “new topic” there should be a button “edit”?
Perhaps this is for admins only.

First of all we need to sort out the pictures. Then we can care about adding them.

hmm , well the country that i live in the good thing that they dont have copyright rules (even if there r , just ink on the papers no body care). so u can tell them that their problem is with me :laughing: :smirk:

irst of all we need to sort out the pictures. Then we can care about adding them.

ok i will give u the examples

for apparmor:- http://sharewiz.net/images/security/apparmor.png

We need licensing information on that one.

Great. This copyright stuff is a huge PITA. As useful as a hole in the head for humanity. Hindering innovation. Unfortunately, for me it really applies. After certain legal actions, huge fines apply, and by not paying them, the state’s monopole on using force will seize bank accounts, salary and as fall back confiscate possessions. Even prison if you refuse to cooperate [lying about what you own or hiding]. Even if you’d theoretically resist with a gang and weapons, they come with more staff and more weapons. And all of that can get started because an an illegal use of some picture. It’s really crazy at which lengths they rather than everyone calm down and relax. I guess this must sound alien to you.


#10

We need licensing information on that one.

well i wonder if the author still alive…

his site:- http://sharewiz.net/

him:- http://www.peterroux.com/

and search engines doesnt give u except a painter if u search for altnerative accounts/profiles or extra information for the same name:- http://www.turningart.com/artist/peter-roux


#11

If we cannot contact and clarify, we cannot use it.
It defaults to copyrighted unfortunately.


#12

I’ve added the Qubes logo. Please check it out. Specifically the size. Has to be manually scaled down using some image manipulation tool. It’s 16x16 at the moment.


#13

oh wow , thats awful life to live.

dont worry then , do whatever u want in order to make whonix better. and i want to do copy wrong.

just tell them that they have to deal with me. (tell them it wasnt me but tnt bom bom did it :wink:)


#14

dont worry just make it like i have done it. if u cant then let me add it.


#15

good one but too small dont u think ? increase the size of it.


#16

How much bigger? 24x24?


#17

ok give it a try let us c


#18

Thanks for the offer, but it’s not going to work so easy. The one who owns the domain is ultimately responsible.


#19

24x24 now.


#20

shift the domain ownership to anonymous person that u know or someone like my case (his country doesnt care for copyrights another examples like africa or india …etc). or shift it to anonymous fake member (doesnt even exist). :innocent:
