View Full Version : Gallery Categories?

Just thinking out loud here -
One of the things I love about ACOT's gallery is that you are able to enter a particular layout into various contests & challenges.....and then you can view all the entries to that particular challenge in one place. Do we have that capability in our gallery here?

the only other category I know of is for those LOs using the Gold Member kits. I'm assuming that they don't want to bog this place down w/categories like how other websites you have to really wade through all the galleries in hopes of finding the right one. But I do know what you're talking about.

Yeah, we anticipate lots of beginners/newbies here and a gallery that is bogged down with categories is very difficult for them to navigate. Categories for contests and challenges get very little attention (long term) so we've opted to keep our categories minimal. But if someone was interested in seeing layouts that were created for a special contest or gallery, they usually start a thread in chatter (or inspirational scrap ideas) that says something like "Post links to your sketch challenge layouts" or something to that effect. For the challenges that we host here at DST, we start a thread like this one (http://www.digishoptalk.com/boards/showthread.php?t=5105). This not only links everyone to the layouts for that category but it provides a place for you all to chat about the challenge as well.
Many sites do have categories for challenges but they also have the thread so that people can link to their layouts. This just seemed like double-info to me. So since DST is trying to remain simplified and streamlined, we felt like the thread would accomplish the same task, less confusion.

OK - thanks for the response! I guess I'm just lazy and don't like to click through all the links! But - the reasons for keeping it streamlined defintely make a lot of sense!
