[tdf-discuss] The Floppy icon and meritocracy


Hi all

I just read the UX thread/sequence of emails where it was decided that the
universal Save icon (in any program, any OS) represented by a floppy disk
would be replaced by another icon.

I'm shocked that a Discuss topic where 54 messages from many people (several
of them opposing and presenting valid arguments against) was totally
dismissed because someone decided that it was time to change and the main
argument was that "it was outdated".

This is not about the floppy icon itself or a criticism to who decided to
change it. It is about the process. If this is meritocracy then it sucks! A
little democracy would go a long way to build a community. Communities don't
behave like this. 

(Disappointed) Regards,
Pedro
