Description Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2014-01-02 20:01:52 UTC
Many websites make small event/holiday-based tweaks to their websites. Some, such as Google, take this to an art form with 'Google Doodles', etc..

It would be great for us to have some mechanism to make it easy to add these little tweaks to our website, perhaps even scheduling them ahead of time to have them appear for a single day or a group of days.

Example events:
- Document Freedom Day
- LibreOffice's Birthday
- Software Freedom Day
- Release days (especially nice: a multi-day countdown to release)
- Winter Holiday/Christmas
- New Year's Day
- Valentine's Day

Although this process is more programmatic than design-related, we might wish to consider such a system during the current Website Redesign.

Makes sense to me :-). Would be neat to have some kind of topical theme.

Nice marketing idea!

- Document Foundation day
- LibO Version x - birthday (only 1 digit)
- LibO xyz event day
- The 1xxth supported language day (start date of the latest supported language) No many people know how many languages are supported; including me. I only know more than 100...
- AOO cooperation day

I assume there is a question place in AskLibO for additional ideas, a lot of them will be provided

qubit, you have the honor to place your idea there. If I get some news I will add them
