A way to maybe simplify some things for users
The current Image Showcase is poorly named. The word showcase suggests a place the very best images should be, not what is currently happening there. What is happening there is a situation where people are encouraged to write about a posting in a very limited way. Not popular, most people break the rules in that section or don’t participate.
- Change the name of the Editors Picks section to Image Showcase. It is a superior word for what happens there.
- Have one gallery for all images. Provide a choice (check box) in the posting process to request / allow a critique for the image posted.
Puts all images in the same place, simplifying access.
Promotes better word usage.
Improves the posting process (encouraging people to stay)
Streamlines the home page by eliminating a large amount of type.
