Reaction to yesterday’s scaling back of the User Gallery has been, for the most part, sympathetic. I haven’t deleted the all the UG data yet, in fact I still have all the submissions going back for the past couple of years. I’m just trying to decide what to do with it.
Some folks have suggested that I make the User Gallery members only. Unfortunately I don’t think that would be right. I think it would be inappropriate for me to charge money for access to something which is freely available on the the Net. I don’t think the artists who have submitted their work thus far would appreciate such a move, and I would rather offer my works exclusively in the members gallery. As I said before, I’m still trying to decide what to do with all of the extra submissions.
Now I think I am going to get back to work on some new wallpapers. I just received my copy of Ozone 3D 2.0 in the mail (still awaiting my registration code), and I bought an interesting SubSurface Scattering plugin over the weekend that I’m dying to learn.
