I suggest having a templates section for people to upload.
The current templates section of OOo is old and poor quality.

I would like us to build up something like the range and quality of templates seen in MS Publisher, for example.

Ideally it would have a thumbnail browser, and be sortable / searchable.

Alot and nice templates do exist for Oo,
they are just not on user-friendly websites

have a look at:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=666045

In any case you can use MS office templates ... they work!!!!!

It sounds as though you are looking for a job. It's harder to volunteer than you might think but I suppose that's what you should do.

I believe you apply to join the documentation project. You'll have to subscribe to some mailing list. I don't know what happens after that.

Thanks for the link, but what is Oxygen Office? Its web site is confusing, and how can I see the templates before installing them, and why doesn't it appear in either Debian or Ubuntu repositories?

I have a few templates that I can share. Nothing special, but I need a place to share them to. Why doesn't such a place already exist within these forums?

I don't mean to sound like I'm complaining, I thought this forum was for suggestions.

Oxygen Office is a separately developed version of the software with additional fonts, templates and something else I can't remember.

There are a growing number of things which need changing about the forum. I am mulling over the possibility of initiating a discussion in General Discussion. It's a matter of striking the right note.

You may have noticed a few threads here which raise performance issues. There are also other administrative shortcomings including the need for consideration of suggestions such as yours by someone who has the power to implement them.

it is confusing indeed

just download any .oxt file from here, and rename them with the extension .zip and you will be able to see the temlates in them before installing them

download from here
