Hello, my name is Davide, i'm an inkscape user since i started playing with graphics, then it became a work. I started using inkscape for web-design too and then i had an idea after looking for inkscape resources on the internet. I've found many tutorials, some forums but i couldn't find what i expected for a vector graphic software: a web-site gallery, with the opportunity to publish your drawing inkscape made, so...
so i did it and with my small company called nois3lab (http://www.nois3lab.it) decided to make the best we could to provide the inkscape's users community with a powerful web-site not only for self publishing of images but also to increase visibility for inkscape and for the users community too.
Now we're almost ready to release it, we need someone to join us to fill the web-site with content (images for first) and to debug the web-site, making it comfortable even though we hope it already is. Actually there's a splash page on http://inkscapegallery.net to prepare users to the next release. We used drupal, cause it's open-source and cause we know it well, we tried to make it work the best it can. So, the development area is at http://test.inkscapegallery.net, if you'd like to, you can start to use it, posting your images, populating forums. We need 10 days of debugging and feedback, then we will move everything in http://www.inkscapegallery.net
I know that inkscape.org already have a section called gallery, but i think that what inkscapegallery could be is quite different, we hope to give inkscape the best container for images created with it and the users the best place to submit their work.
I hope that after the release we will collaborate with inkscape.org too, cause the primary goal of this web-site is to help inkscape knowledge growth, to give a place where to go to see what inkscape can do.
I love inkscape.org cause it's full of documentation, resources, forums. Some of these will be in inkscapegallery to, but it is a gallery web-site for the most and we hope a great web-site gallery.
I hope you will be happy to know what we are doing. As soon as the web site will be ready, i'll communicate and we will consider if and how to collaborate for the inkscape growing purpose.
Thanks, Davide Ferrante nois3lab inkscape gallery
