YaST Mascot Contest

October 21st, 2008 by

Because not everybody was aware of the contest and wondered a little bit about the reminder mail, we extended the deadline for the YaST mascot contest. The new deadline for the submissions is November 09, 12:00 UTC. Participate, show us your vision of the mascot! We are not only searching for a sketch/picture of the mascot, also for a name. The winners will get all the fame and a stuffed Geeko! So get your pencils/mice/brains ready :-)

More information with the rules in the wiki page.

  1. Just use a big chameleon, with big eyes, and curly tail. Call him Chip

  2. Alexander

    The Yo cat is not bad ;)

  3. Call him Chipo. Chameleon open mouth, chameleon tounge and one eye (or two eyes).

    The woed “YAST” always reminds me of “yacht”, dunno what creature must live on yachts though :)

    I would prefer a Wrench or a Monkey Wrench with eyes and hands making the ok signal with its right hand. Its name could be YastY! or YastYs!

    That Eager Beaver is cute, but I think there shouldn’t be a Y (Why) on its belly.

    Instead of that Y (Why) there should be “That’s Y”. A wordplay, you know…
    And it should be big, because Yast is a great tool.

  7. There should be two mascots. One the SUSE chameleon and the other, a bug. SUSE eats the bug…

    Hmm, not that good of an idea as I read it to myself. :(

    Greetings!
    I’d be for the monkey Carlos proposed, but with the nme YaM for “Yet another mascot” or simply “YaST Mascot” ;-)

    Does YaST really need a mascot?

  10. a happy wrench with eyes

  11. David

    Eager Beaver, in any of the two green versions (without that dark snout), is pretty good

  12. anzih

    it should be justise (as yust-ice or something) and animal would be polar bear, why? its king of northpole …i think?

  13. anzih

    oh, it was yast, but it suonds like just

  14. Medved

    Medved – a “preved” bear with Y-shaped raised arms :-D

    as linux started be made in fnland (northern side of world) by linus torwalds, and penguin mascot “tux” lives in south pole, and it’s mistake, thats why it should be bear, because ancient finnish people worshipped bear, and now every nerd or somebody would would know this all, in finland there is many name for bear “mesik√§mmen, kontio, otso, nalle” k√§mmen is its hand and mesi is honey, nalle is every childs sleepingtoy. we here in finland don’t have polar bears but?

    as everybody should know, santaclaus, fatherchristmas is from finland from place called korvatunturi (earhill) and coca cola took it from us, and made it their mascot, dressed him in red and made he whatever he is now, originally it was not like its today, even finnish people use red santaclaus, father christmas, and call him joulupukki (christbock), you could make some co-operation with cocacola, does linux users drink much cocacola?

    Greetings

    What about a small chameleon standing on its toes with a pair of tools in its hand.

  18. “Do you haf a problem? I will fix. YAST a minoot.”

    I almost cried

  20. time

    what time is it? it’s different time everywhere around the world

  21. Bob I

    I got to ask why do we need this? Yast is an integral part of Opensuse. If one decides to fork Opensuse they can’t take Yast with them. So please tell me why does yast need its own mascot?

  22. chris

    you’ve already guessed – the suse guys are considering to make yast available for other distributions and distribute it more freely than curretly the case. the mascot seems like a first step to do so…

  23. Some one

    I’m sorry for my stupid question, but, what’s the meaning of “mascot”?!
    I know, I’m totally ignorant!
