Hi folks,

Do you think it would be fair to require folks applying for art accounts to post a self-introduction to the list? How about complete at least one minor design task? (EG hackergotchi or banner design off the design queue?)

Here is a first draft (it probably could use corrections from a native English speaker) for the message to be sent to people who requested membership and have not been accepted yet:

=========================================================================
Hi [name],

I am [name], one of the sponsors or the Art group in the Fedora Account system (FAS).

I write to you as a follow-up to your request to join our group. We receive a lot of such requests, some of them coming from people unknown to us or inactive in the Art Team.

If you want to join this group, please subscribe to the Fedora-Art mailing list [1] and write a small introduction,allowing us to know you. Also if you want to show us your capabilities, please have a look at our jobs queue [2] try to accomplish an open task from there and post it to the list.

Note that if you will not act in any way, after 2 weeks your request will be deleted automatically.

Be aware that membership in the Art group of the FAS is not a requirement to participate in the project, to post or answer questions on the mailing list, on IRC or to use the Wiki, it is a privilege granted to established contributors.

Works for me.  If I got that email I'd get off my butt and do something!
     ;)

I think the message for current but inactive or unknown members can be similar (modeled by the same structure).

There is a category of existing members on which I am not sure how to act: people active in general in the Fedora project, members in other groups of the FAS (for example in the Ambassadors group) but not active in Art. I am not sure how/if the Art membership is useful to them (or not useful to us) but I also do not want to kick them out, they are our colleagues.
If they're part of Fedora by now, they should know the rules...

There is also a category: "former Red Hat employees who left Red Hat and Fedora and will never come back (we know that as a fact since the way they left)" (wow! how lame am I to create such a category for only one person only not to name her :D). I think in such case I can delete on the spot, right?
In the one case, I'd say yes, but don't base it off my decision ;)
