I'm interested timeth
About forum separation...
Yes we have to be careful => in my humble opinion, it should be very easy for new people to get into the artwork-group (if we place it elsewhere).
In all the possibilities I looked through, I never found a suitable gallery with latest additions.... (where people can vote directly, add ideas etc.... => something like that would be perfect; but I think that requires a custom made website -- and my exams are starting within 2 days
The last thing we're looking at, seems better than the others - because it HAS a list with all latest files... (but timeth's suggestion is still coming
(however, I'm going to have an extra look at the Google Sites option, because you can modify the behavior very much, with gadgets, and custom made things I think
=> it would be perfect that the external visitors only can view previews, but that the involved artists can share their designs, artwork, ... (in this case the full files)...
:: visitors can vote for the previews (and add ideas)
:: artists can work together on something (who has some time now, someone else tomorrow (or someone else with a little other idea), etc...)
But maybe that's just too much work for the artists (uploading 2 things, ....)
I think the final solution should be something as simple as possible
(I think we all agree on that)
