Dear all,

we are still discussing about the layout of the WLM calendar.

Current status is: http://etherpad.wikimedia.org/WLM-calendar

I have been talking to some friends about the design of the calendars.
Two things:

1. The size of the images: Is the designer allowed to cut / crop the
images to make them fit into the design? Of course, within reasonable
margins, with commons sense. I have attached an example of the lol
porn calendar, which I find quite nice. But since we have different
formats and sizes of images (imagine one image like this on the page:
it would anyway be difficult to have all pages look equally nice.

2. Do we really want these blank fields for handwritten notes? In my
opinion, the calendar should be more like an art calendar than a
"practical" thing. Everyone carries around their calendars in their
pockets, you don't need to "disrupt" the well and cleanly designed
calendar by writing some stuff on it. The value of the calendar lies
in the images, not in the calendar feature.

What do you think? Add your comments to the etherpad, please.
