I’d love to see a gifts system too, even just sponsoring other member’s CGS memberships.
The search function is only as functional as people make it, if you don’t enter keywords, it doesn’t show up, once I’ve got a good collection of keywords, I’ll build something similar to del.icio.us that suggests good words
Ah, I didn’t realize that folks were skipping this bit. I just copy and paste similar keywords as applicable to similar images ~ trying to cast as wide a net as possible while still staying relevant ~
for example, for any image I’ll put my name, my user name, my school / institution name (and I don’t mean the nuthouse :D) the software / media, any applicable thematic words, etc. Hey, you want people to find your work, right?
I put this for a still from an animation:
Joseph Cornell, Rebecca, Rebeccak, Kimmel, Art Center, Art Center College of Design, ACCD, Utopia Parkway, Animation, Still, 3D, Maya, Personal, Box, Construction, Cabinet, Wonder (etc.)
Dunno if this is good or not, but at least it’s a wide net.
I wonder if maybe a hint should be added to the keywords area to encourage folks to enter keywords ~ maybe a reminder such as “Enter keywords to enable people to locate your work” or something.
