I'm not sure where or when we should add it so I'm asking for feedback here.

I'm late, but I still wanted to chime in.

Konqi [0] is a part of the KDE family [1] for a long time now. He has not only been part of our software and promotion activities, he has also made several real-life appearances on his own [2], or with his girlfriend Katie [3], and as a movie star [4]. He has looked over the shoulders of many KDE developers [5] and the plush version [6] has been part of quite some of our kid's lifes, including mine.

Konqi has inspired artists [7], pastry cooks [8], and needlework [9]. He also has been an excellent member of the family of free software mascots [10]. And of course what would David be without his famous Konqi T-Shirt [11]?

Konqi is part of our home as community, and while not everybody likes him the same [12], for many of us he is part of the identity of KDE. But he wasn't our first mascot [13], and he won't be our last one. The new rendition [14] is cute, but still professional, and opening up a number of new interesting ways how to work with our mascot.

It will have to prove itself. I don't think it would be right to do a huge change to our mascot by a vote or a committee. But if there are people behind it, who give it a life, use it to give KDE promotion a fresh touch, make use of the opportunities it provides, it will grow and can become a worthy successor of our current Konqi. Then it will be part of the KDE family as well.
