Talk:GSoC News and Tips
After student applications close:
Is there any good tip we can post for what happens next after student applications close? Maybe modify the "getting comments on your proposal" section and archive the original here if it was useful? - Gale
Amount of content present looks well judged, given the limited resources we have to do a newsdesk! About a line or so every two days until things quieten down. Really like the google logo, but worth checking FAQs to see if we really can use it - I know it's been discussed before. Might be safer to use a summer-of-code google logo instead - which I know we can - or have you already checked? (I thought google-code was wider than just GSoC). James 15:55, 27 March 2008 (PDT)
- Gale: Google-code is definitely wider than GSoC but I could not find anything in the GSoC FAQs about a logo, except the GSoC logo for 2007. I can't find a GSoC logo for 2008, so followed Vaughan's idea where he used the Google-code logo on the main web site. I did find a project announcing its 2008 mentorship that uses the exact same GSoC image with the year removed. I think that looks pretty dreary myself (summer = black?) but I can use that for want of a better one if you prefer?
- James: This is from GSoC Announce list. You might want to subscribe. "Behold the 2008 program logo: http:// tinyurl . com/2u7wqu. Possibly use a strip taken from the centre as it is a square 'logo'.
- Gale: Not a terribly good logo for integrating in web pages is it? ("of" too small). I've done the best I can with it, within the constraints of stopping it overflowing into the news section at small text sizes without introducing too much white space. I can't see just taking "Summer of Code" and then just showing the Southern Hemisphere is an answer? Have subscribed to announce list.
