ralphmI'm sure people in here have opinions on Swag. What kind of XMPP branded swag would you people like to pay for to own?
ralphmE.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.
jjrhstickers are usually a good go to
ralphmI think we already have stickers, but sure, agreed.
ralphmI was thinking more about clothing.
KevI don't think *needs* to be, but stuff that's slightly more workish than the usual t-shirts sound appealing.
KevMaybe I'm the only person who'd wear an XMPP (or XMPP Summit) Polo Shirt.
debacleI've the hoody
jjrhPolo shirts are popular for being work acceptable while casual enough to wear elsewhere. I think all of redhat's stuff is polo
debacleBut I like an espresso cup with the full text of 0060 printed on it
jjrhI like zip up hoodys
jjrhI'll buy a tshirt or hoody and some stickers at the summit :)
KevT-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.
KevDo T-Shirt for FOSDEM, and Polo for the Summit, or such.
GuusI can confirm that we have (many) stickers of one kind: the die-cut logo.
Guusoh, and we have a bunch of the 'hello my jid is' stickers too
Guusif we do a summit thing, will that be sold, or presented as a gift?
GuusI have a slight preference to sell clothing that's somewhat more durable than a shirt at FOSDEM
ralphmGuus: for now I'm assuming we sell stuff
Guusbut I'm easily persuaded otherwise.
ralphmAnd if we go for a t-shirt, I'd like it to indeed be a better material than all previous ones.
GuusI don't think we should aim to sell shirts at the summit, which has at best 30 potential buyers.
Guusnot worth the hassle, I think.
GuusI actually quite enjoy the hoodie that I have
Guusmaybe we should offer more than one item?
Guusand put whatever is left in storage
ralphmWhat we did before is have both T-shirts and Hoodies
GuusI'd not mind having something that zips, with a subtle logo - unsure if that'd be a big seller though
ralphmFor t-shirts, I'd like e.g. 50/50 or triblend material. They stay better for longer times and are more comfortable.
KevGuus: 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.
KevNot a hill for me to die on, but I'd think it cool.
KevBut yes, someone has to put the effort in, and that's a hard sell.
GuusKev sure - I'd either donate that, or pre-sell.
Guus(to order the exact right amount, etc)
Guus(did Kev just put himself in the background? )
Guusralphm I have no clue what material choice would make for a desirable product - I trust you fully in this 🙂
ralphmTotally pre-sell. For Summit I'd setup a google forms doc requesting size and order based on that.
Guusright, let's make things concrete then.
GuusShall we have a summit shirt or hoodie, or nothing?
Seve/SouLAgree on that for Summit
Seve/SouLSuper cool to have something for Summit in my opinion :)
GuusI'd actually like the somewhat subtle XMPP logo on a jacket of sorts, or hoodie-with-zipper
ZashAre there any Serious Bussines Shirts?
ZashSomething something XMPP is serious bussiness, just look at my suit and tie something
ralphmGuus: like a hoodless jacket? I can see that
GuusYeah, 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
Guusor something comparable
Guusshoot, I'm 5 minutes late
Guusfor 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.
Seve/SouLI made the mistake of not working on this since last February
GuusI'm out / on mobile
Guusit's on everyone in SCAM, Seve, not just one person
ralphmYeah, I've been looking around at drukwerkdeal.nl for this.
jjrhdid XFS not register for a stand? https://fosdem.org/2019/stands/
pep.jjrh, "The Realtime lounge" points to xmpp.org
pep.But that'd be great to have it more specific :/
jjrhahh I did a search and was like "oh did someone screw up?"
jjrhRealtime Lounge is kinda weird since just about everything else is under it's project/org name.
