Hello people,

while we are still in the middle of the development cycle for 17.10, I'd 
like to start the discussion about the potential (although likely) 
community wallpaper contest for 18.04.

We've ran the contest twice now, and the last time we used the WordPress 
plugin specifically created for this purpose. Does anybody think we need 
to tweak the tool – either how submissions or voting works? If needed, I 
can set up a test contest (for the team) to re-evaluate things.

That aside, the main thing I wanted to talk about are the policies for 
the contest. Last time we use the following guidelines:

There are two main things I'd like to propose to change:

First, I'd like to limit submissions to a certain number per person. 
While I'd like to see the number of submissions go up, I would like them 
to be from a bigger group of people. Additionally, this means we'll make 
the submitters pick their best work instead of us having to vote on it.

Second, I would like to limit submissions to own work only. While this 
means we are potentially excluding people from the contest, we are still 
making the contest more about the community – not just a community 
curated contest.
