Started adding some scenario ideas (not scenarios themselves with
exception of one case) under some users. I'll try to add more in
next few days. Please feel free to add new scenario ideas, add more
detail to the ideas or change what is already there. :) (also please
let me know if you'd rather do this in a more structured way. :D) <br>
Also please feel free to continue fleshing out any of the
persona-stubs or add new ones. :) <br>

Ok I have taken Jimmy's personas and mine and added a bit more
detail to some and piled it on the wiki page on website review. <br>

Set, I think your user falls somewhere in combination of the 2 of
the users so I tried to reflect your points there. Feel free to
split it back to its own persona through. :D <br>
In this plan, I think that once we have personas, we will go into
scenarios which is more how the users goals relate to Ubuntu
studio. (e.g. Persona "the person is interested in polished and
cool looking items" Scenario: "user looks for screenshots of the
OS. or Persona:"user is interested in collaborating with their
colleagues on other OSes. Scenario:"user looks for specific
information on which software can also work with adobe formats") <br>
I think community showcase would be very relevant to a few of the
personas we have sketched so far and it is a great idea. I wonder
though if it would be better to have the showcase actually be part
of the blog? where once a month we do have interview or showcase
art. We can even begin with some of our work and also incorporate
tutorials as to how we use various software in workflows (and
invite our users to do it). I think it could be a lot better to
have continous information than to have a static bunch of
information that then we forget is there and try to revise 2 years
later. :D That would also give us a specific way to approach other
projects in form of inviting them to guest blog for us, and us
doing blogs for them. more fun for everyone. I would think that
eventually we would have a team dedicated to it (in continuation
of your idea of users closer to the dev team) rather than us
trying to get everything done ourselves.<br>
Still thinking out loud. <br>

though we will not (I assume) run a user-centered design process.
So just to start the example some personas stubs thoughts for the website:
user A: long time Ubuntu Studio user. experienced musician
user B: previous linux user. Film editor, is just switching to Ubuntu Studio for first time.
User C: first time linux user. Expert graphic designer.
<pre wrap="">I'm divided between two thoughts:
1. This "persona" thing is genious
2. How do i use this "persona" thing in this application?
But let's try, when i found ubuntustudio, i was an experienced musician.
previous ubuntu-server user, and a professional graphic designer.
I wanted to know if i could ditch adobe and steinberg (cubase) to save
some free-beers. In fact, i already kindof knew i could, since i got the
link from a close friend, my Best Root For Ever.
What i was interested in was: what applications are included, and how do
i install it on my machine. I knew what it was about (ehm.. Linu... ehm
sorry i ment GNU/Linux.. like, ehm, "computing for the people made by
the people" ?) and i probably looked for nice pictures before i started
<pre wrap="">Ideas? thoughts?
<pre wrap="">Back in November last year, I started working on a Community Showcase
with a call for interviews. I got the idea, when were looking for ways
to engage more people with the dev team, and this person (i forgot the
name) wrote something in the lines of: "We should not talk so much about
how cool it is to be a creative down with FLOSS, instead, just _be_
cool." However, the idea was to showcase artists that used ubuntu
studio. I got very little response, but have been sitting on the few
articles i gathered in hopes of getting in more of them in order to have
a sort of constant flow of publications (one post per month-ish). Also,
the site would have needed some arrangement, and well, now is the moment
it seems. :)
I think it would be nice to have such a category. "Community Showcase"
and i've come to think it should even be a place for the userbase to get
closer to the dev team. Or even lead developers of gimp, blender,
ardour, you know... Nice people doing awesome things put in a cool light.
