    I didn't know where to post this message, so I've decided to publish it here, Sorry for any inconvenience

    We, the spanish WordPress community, are promoting a contest to achieve a WordPress mascot as other open source software have. We deserve a mascot as good, at least, as Tux or Drupalicon, isn't it?

    The idea is to create a mascot, explain why it can define WordPress and publish a post linking to the site that has promote the contest. After a month, or so, a new post will be published with all candidates in order the community to vote the WordPress Mascot.

    If you want to unite to this proposal this is the post to link (english translated post) ;)

    That is a great idea. How about Woodward the Wombat?

    I like the idea, too.

    What do the WordPress people think about it, though? We could carry on a vote and choose the WordPress mascot, but if they choose to ignore it and keep on going with their logo, everything we did is moot.

    I like Wooward, by the way. Any other choices? I got plenty of ideas, but an average 3rd grader has much greater drawing powers than myself.

    Did I say 3rd grader? Sorry, I meant 1st grader, or Ker.

    Our efforts wouldn't be a waste of time because it would show the WP staff that the users want a mascot which may eventually change their minds.

    It looks as the mods doesn't have any interest :(

    I'll follow with the proposal. Some people has made several mascots :)
