bring back the request page we had on old site

Registered by John Olsen on 2010-05-05

For those wishing to help create art for the site but lacking inspiration a requests page could spur creativity. it would be a good way to catalog what is missing from the collection that would be useful. Some categories are deep and efforts would be better spent on a missing design than another CD/DVD image or the like.

Here are requests we need to transfer, which we also use for themes:

** Tileable patterns meeting common requirements (woodgrain, stone, brick, linoleum, carpet, wallpaper, water, etc). Again, the contest could be for a particular type of pattern or it could be general.
** Desktop wallpaper. This also could be made more specific (abstract wallpaper, scenic wallpaper, animal wallpaper, etc.) or left general.

Whiteboard

I agree, this is cool. Instead, we now have the ability to do activites, but a user generated one could be really cool.

This is really important to free up us from having to manage this every month!

###

Another thought here is that we go ahead and create /requests or even /activities and then put up the current requests and do it manually and encourage developers at the same time. Since OCAL gets like 50K uniques a day, we should be able to get more people to help, right?

We could manually input all the requests, and just use the current hack for adding new activities:

Soooo,

http://www.openclipart.org/upload?upload_tags=request_name

###

We need a mockup of how this page should look. Jon

The other thing about this is to allow for generic requests, but also to allow people to pay for the request! As in a bounty one puts up, then a timeframe for a submissions, then selection which unlocks the submissions into the public domain with the primary selection getting the moula, or 50% of it, the other half goes to the site.

###

This page should be something like sharing ideas for OCAL, more users more ideas. We can add voting for requests. and they can be ordered by number of votes or date like on stackoverflow. jcubic

Here is my suggestion: Please make free versions of these symbols:
