Alfter being treated twice as a guy who can't work in a community I have no
other choice but to leave the community. But let me explain something
before I remove my subscriptions to the lists. I joined the Mageia
Marketing list trying to give back something to the distribution. My
schedule constraints, due to my daily job and geographic location, makes it
almost impossible to join the chats. My only reference is what I receive
from the mail messages of the list, when I can read them. One day I noticed
that Mageia needed better splash screens and I saw an opportunity to help.
I draw a couple of screens and suggest some texts. The guys from Marketing
ask me to join then the Artwork list as well. I rushed to create a set of
screens and mail them to both lists before the deadline. Then I read that
my screens didn't fit something (nobody has yet explained me what they
didn't fit) and I rushed again to create a new set of screens trying to fix
what i guess was wrong with the first set.

Maybe you're right and I'm not a community material. Maybe I joined without
knowing how a community distribution work. Or maybe what I needed was a
little introduction to how a community distribution works and what the
rules are. But, after reading a couple of "not so nice" messages regarding
my contribution to Mageia I feel that this is a community I don't want to

Good luck with Mageia.
