    I'm sure people in here have opinions on Swag. What kind of XMPP branded swag would you people like to pay for to own?

  21. ralphm

    E.g. I believe Kev mentions something before, about it needing to be something he could also wear in work meetings, but I don't remember the specifics.

  22. jjrh

    stickers are usually a good go to

  23. ralphm

    I think we already have stickers, but sure, agreed.

  24. ralphm

    I was thinking more about clothing.

  25. Kev

    I don't think *needs* to be, but stuff that's slightly more workish than the usual t-shirts sound appealing.

  26. Kev

    Maybe I'm the only person who'd wear an XMPP (or XMPP Summit) Polo Shirt.

  27. debacle

    I've the hoody

  28. jjrh

    Polo shirts are popular for being work acceptable while casual enough to wear elsewhere. I think all of redhat's stuff is polo

  29. debacle

    But I like an espresso cup with the full text of 0060 printed on it

  30. jjrh

    I like zip up hoodys

  31. pep. has joined

  32. jjrh

    I'll buy a tshirt or hoody and some stickers at the summit :)

  33. Kev

    T-Shirts are probably more likely to sell at FOSDEM. I wonder if there's any chance of doing what I've suggested before - a set number of summit items (preordered) just for participants in the summit, and then stuff for FOSDEM.

  34. Kev

    Do T-Shirt for FOSDEM, and Polo for the Summit, or such.

  35. Guus

    I can confirm that we have (many) stickers of one kind: the die-cut logo.

  36. Guus

    oh, and we have a bunch of the 'hello my jid is' stickers too

  37. Guus

    if we do a summit thing, will that be sold, or presented as a gift?

  38. Zash

    Guus: 👍

  39. Guus

    I have a slight preference to sell clothing that's somewhat more durable than a shirt at FOSDEM

  40. ralphm

    Guus: for now I'm assuming we sell stuff

  41. Guus

    but I'm easily persuaded otherwise.

  42. ralphm

    And if we go for a t-shirt, I'd like it to indeed be a better material than all previous ones.

  43. Guus

    I don't think we should aim to sell shirts at the summit, which has at best 30 potential buyers.

  44. Guus

    not worth the hassle, I think.

  45. Guus

    I actually quite enjoy the hoodie that I have

  46. Guus

    maybe we should offer more than one item?

  47. Guus

    and put whatever is left in storage

  48. ralphm

    What we did before is have both T-shirts and Hoodies

  49. Guus

    I'd not mind having something that zips, with a subtle logo - unsure if that'd be a big seller though

  50. ralphm

    For t-shirts, I'd like e.g. 50/50 or triblend material. They stay better for longer times and are more comfortable.

  51. Kev

    Guus: I'm not suggesting the Summit sales for profit or anything, I just think it would be very cool for the Summit attendees to have something Physical out of it.

  52. Kev

    Not a hill for me to die on, but I'd think it cool.

  53. Kev

    But yes, someone has to put the effort in, and that's a hard sell.

  54. Kev &

  55. Guus

    Kev sure - I'd either donate that, or pre-sell.

  56. Guus

    (to order the exact right amount, etc)

  57. Guus

    (did Kev just put himself in the background? )

  58. Guus

    ralphm I have no clue what material choice would make for a desirable product - I trust you fully in this 🙂

  59. ralphm

    Totally pre-sell. For Summit I'd setup a google forms doc requesting size and order based on that.

  62. Guus

    right, let's make things concrete then.

  63. Guus

    Shall we have a summit shirt or hoodie, or nothing?

  64. Seve/SouL

    Agree on that for Summit

  65. Seve/SouL

    Super cool to have something for Summit in my opinion :)

  66. Guus

    I'd actually like the somewhat subtle XMPP logo on a jacket of sorts, or hoodie-with-zipper

  67. Zash

    Are there any Serious Bussines Shirts?

  68. Zash

    Something something XMPP is serious bussiness, just look at my suit and tie something

  69. ralphm

    Guus: like a hoodless jacket? I can see that

  70. Guus

    Yeah, something like https://www.amazon.com/sandbank-Lightweight-Softshell-Flight-Bomber/dp/B076C5YMQJ/ref=lp_2528780011_1_6?s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1547136164&sr=1-6&nodeID=2528780011&psd=1 perhaps

  71. Syndace has joined

  72. Guus

    or something comparable

  73. Guus

    shoot, I'm 5 minutes late

  74. Guus

    gotta run

  75. Guus

    for FOSDEM, I'd opt to sell both hoodies and shirts again, but I fail to find the time to arrange for them, I'm afraid.

  76. Seve/SouL

    I made the mistake of not working on this since last February

  77. Guus

    I'm out / on mobile

  78. Guus


  79. Guus

    it's on everyone in SCAM, Seve, not just one person

  80. Guus has left

  81. ralphm

    Yeah, I've been looking around at drukwerkdeal.nl for this.

    did XFS not register for a stand? https://fosdem.org/2019/stands/

  92. pep.

    jjrh, "The Realtime lounge" points to xmpp.org

  93. pep.

    But that'd be great to have it more specific :/

  94. jjrh

    ahh I did a search and was like "oh did someone screw up?"

  95. jjrh

    Realtime Lounge is kinda weird since just about everything else is under it's project/org name.
