Design Team

Hi all,
(Developers, I'm not spamming since no one responded to both pms I sent, so please don't ban me again.)

Should we have a Design Team that specifically works on design integration? That way it will be less of a load on devs to integrate themes and such. What do you all think?

What work specifically would a design team do? Would they be given permissions to commit things to GitHub without review? Who is in charge? Who has oversight?

:) They (or I for now maybe) would manage to what goes into the main release, with a positive consensus of course. They would add icons, backgrounds, and more. I'm hoping that devs would code check so that it isn't breaking the OS.

I think you should be in charge of everything. You could become a ReactOS uber Fuhrer.

There's simply not enough need right now. Plus, if anyone where to be given this sort of responsibility by the devs or the community at large, right now it would probably be offered to @p01arst0rm if they wanted to do it.

Who's to say we can't both be on it?

How can you prove you're the right person for such responsibility? Do you have any actual contributions to the ReactOS design? :roll:

There are many people in the community who contributed to the design (this includes themes, wallpapers, icons, and other media), especially I remember Pi_User5, p01arst0rm, and foxlet, but obviously the list of volunteer designers is much greater.

:point_up: This. ReactOS needs qualified and interested programmers and engineers right now, visual appearance can wait.

I'm working on redoing a majority of the icons. AKA Project Iconaissance. I know it's delayed, but I only have one more week of exams, so please bear with me.

I think you're trying to over-organize. You are free to contribute whatever you wish to the project, there's no need for a "design team" or any such thing.
This works the exact same way for code contributions -- the only reason people get added to a "development team" is that over time, their contributions will require less and less review and the overhead of having to have somebody else merge the changes becomes greater than the "danger" of letting that person merge them directly. This generally occurs very naturally, and there is no need to organize things in advance, nor do we generally consider it a good idea to give people such power without the matching proven track record of high quality contributions.
In short, if you want to contribute designs, you are already part of the design team!

I was wondering if you are going to change the taskbar.
The classic Windows 95/98 taskbar is fine,but I think that ReactOS would look quite better with an original taskbar.

Uuuuuh.... Image You did not try ROS the last... 3 years, did you?

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.
