Hi Kent,

I believe Mark is looking for suggestions that are really Personas (the new "lite" 
Themes). I already had drafted an email with 3 suggestions when it came to me that 
this not about (what we would call) themes anymore.

Otherwise I would have suggested

1 - Nautipolis (excellent and very usable)
2 - TT deepdark (best of the dark and monochrome ones)
3 - charamel X (as it really tries to add some innovation as well)

> Adding the list of featured Personas will give us an additional link direct to 
> Personas on AMO on that Get Add-ons pane, making it much easier for users to find 
> the site and look through the whole list of Personas.
> At this stage, I'm looking for a generic set that could be featured all year round. 
> Hence suggestions are welcome. Before you all dive in, here's a basic list of 
> requirements for what I'd like to see:
>   * Thunderbird related is a bonus
>   * A mixture of styles
>   * Look good in all of the Thunderbird windows where we display Personas
>   * The final list will contain about 5 Personas
> Please put your suggestions here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/lzFJm9uR5z
> I'll leave it about a week (so lets say closing date is end of day Monday 25th 
> June), before working out how to reduce the list for the final collection - I'll see 
> how many entries we get.
> You can view all personas at https://addons.mozilla.org/thunderbird/personas/
> Currently from within Thunderbird, you can go to Tools -> Add-ons -> Get Add-ons. 
> Then next to "Up & Coming" select "See all" to get you a tab with the add-ons site. 
> Then you can select "Personas" from underneath the "Add-ons" title at the top of the 
> page.
> Mark.
