Re: Getting a better sense of community - gallery based groups

2) Set up a Deviant art community -

Disadvantages:
- the RSS feeds don't actually embed the image, they only provide a link. (does anyone know if it embeds the image for paid subscription accounts? I'd be willing to donate the $$ if so.)

This is a dA paid subscription: http://inkscapers.deviantart.com/ and its gallery feed: http://backend.deviantart.com/rss.xml?q=by%3Ainkscapers+sort%3Atime+-in%3Ascraps&type=deviation

Is exactly the same as for an unpaid account.

5) Something else?

I looked briefly at shadowness.com, which is pretty similar to deviantart but they have explicit groups *and* their RSS feeds embed images. However, their copyright policies are pretty weird. I've also never heard of it before (have any of you?) Not sure how reliable/trustworthy it is? Flickr and deviantart have both been around a while.

Any others we should look at?

Any preferences / comments / ideas?


I did more thinking about hosting and aggregating (if we decide to run our own gallery):

- for hosting: not everybody has his own hosting solution, is willing to pay for one and all free services are less then perfect. So for those in heed a gallery or something provided by Fedora could be very useful.

- for aggregating only: if we host content, then we probably will want to police it, so only aggregation will provide more freedom to the contributors.
