Hi folks,

So a few days ago I submitted an item to Fedora News [1] about our 
progress so far and inviting more artists to join our team.

The response I've received in my blog comments about our progress thus 
far has been overwhelmingly positive:

- "Great work guys.... You set the bar really high with the last one, 
but I know you can do it. :-)"

- "keep up your fantastic work!"

- "hm... These themes are all cool and very nice. You are doing 
excellent work."

I just wanted to point these out to you as inspiration :)

Some specific feedback for improvement/critique on the FC7 themes thus 
far is below:

= Flying High =

(no critiques, lots of <3 :) )

= Planet =

(no critiques, lots of <3 :) )

= Borealis =

- "Sitting here in Fairbanks, AK, looking up at the aurora right now and 
I can't help but think.. can you add some green-ish or violet-ish into 
the sky tinting into the auroral effects? The violet would tint the 
lower edge while a green tint would pre-dominate most of the curtain." 
(from Jef)

- "Too small amount of colors"

= General =

- "This may be impractical, but what about taking a couple of the other 
themes (planet, borealis), and putting them on the balloons in the 
Flying High wallpaper/theme. It would help it look more like a ballon 
launch with different balloons (like in here: 
and allow for multiple themes in the default. Alternately, you could use 
the themes from some of the older cores."

- "Why are Fedora themes so dark? I'll like to see shinning themes, 
bright themes, not obscure or nightly! Dark backgrounds make dificult to 
be seen with detail on some older monitors, for instance. They look to 
dark-blue almost-black."
