Improve encouragement messages and artwork
I have recently brought back the encouragement messages. They're a nice addition to the app, and makes us feel rewarded of our hard work.
However, I am terrible at encouraging people. Of course, my widget is just as terrible
GNOME To Do must bring the best of each soul out there. With this app, we have the chance to help them work hard, keep them motivated, and ultimately be happy.
It would be incredible to have a nice background effect there for when the current list is empty, with an encouraging or rewarding message. Two kinds of message there come to my mind:
- Motivational: when the list is completely empty, and works still needs to be done. Messages here must empower and encourage people to get their tasks done.
- Rewarding: when the list has tasks, and they are all completed. People should feel rewarded and happy for their hard work.
For reference, here's some cool work I've seen:
- Draw some encouraging and rewarding messages
- development tasks
- qa (quality assurance) tasks
