remy's site has great galleries, but if its just ryan workign on the site maybe an automatic submision could work, he-man.org has a good search and submit feature, it must take ages to make the galerieshttp://www.he-man.org/site_sects/fan_cr ... /index.php
It will be an automatic submission thing. What I'm going to do that's different is program it so that certain galleries are featured in something like a "Transtopia Featured Galleries" or something like that so the cream of the crop can really stand out. That will make TFmaster's life incredibly easier as well as Devastator's. The users will perform most of the work, a script will automatically generate the various sized images, and then all the Transtopia staff will have to do is essentially moderate the content which should free them up to do what they enjoy doing as much as you do ... kitbashing and being a part of a community. Let the site work for itself! That's the beauty of programming.

What would you think about a "beginninger's forum" or something like that so people could ask their questions as they're just getting started but it will keep those questions out of the forums for the more experienced kitbash users? Experienced eople who like to help new users could help guide them by pointing them in the right direction to the Transtopia articles or where they could buy the supplies or whatever is necessary to make kitbashes pertaining to the new user's questions. That way if someone doesn't like the questions new people ask, that person doesn't have to be around that environment.
That's what I was thinking. maybe place the Mewbie Introductions in there and then have stickies for the Paint, tools and clay tips and uses for effects and whatnot.
I was also thinking since Scratchbuilding is a lone thing and not to easy to duplicate we also add stickies of the "How To"s for projects that are usually fairly common like the Alt Prime Leg extension for exampile.
See, this is why I made a thread for you guys to post links to helpful sections with tips and the like so we can keep track and find a good place for it to go.
In any case, seeing how much Ryan is busting his ass and trying to do his best to keep as much content as possible and willing to work with you guys on your ideas, do you feel alot better/more comfortable now?
I told you he's a great guy with all our best interests at heart. (Granted the content would also boost his veiwer count but I don't think any of us would be doing this if we didn't get something out of it right?)
He's a great guy and it's good to see you all comming around.
