I have been wondering about the itens 2 and 3 in your list for some time...
Could have asked before, but didn't want to bothered anyone with what I
thought were silly/useless questions or problems. Looks like I was wrong.
When you say "Request that people upload clipart separately. Or do it
yourself.", you mean we should upload our own clipart separately or you also
mean that we should, if possible, download other people clipart, separate
and upload it by ourselves?
One more question... Sometimes I notice that some clipart could make good
use of existing tags but the author didn't add them. For instance, it's a
wedding clipart and the author included only "male, female, love" as tags,
not the "wedding" tag. Is there anything I can do to help? Or that is not
Sincerely hoping that I am not making too much questions (lol),

> list into a word processor, find and replace all commas with a commaspace,
> remove unecessary tags, then paste back into the cliparts' tag list.
> 1. *Replace underscore character "_" with a space character " " in any
> clipart titles.*
> Change the Upload Name entry.
> This will enable long titles to be able to break when there is too much
> words for the CSS to be able to handle effectively.
> 2. *Remove tags such as media, public_domain, svg, image, png*
> This will clean up the tag list for better categorisations, clearer
> searches, less tag weight on things that aren't relevant to the clipart in
> question. These tags are leftovers from the old OCAL cchost system and are
> not necessary in this new OCAL system. You will be able to remove these
> often at the same time as replacing the commas.
> 3. *Add a space after each comma to all tag lists that have this format
> "tag,tag,tag,tag"*. We want this "tag, tag, tag, tag"
> This will stop the tag lists of each clipart breaking the page. This format
> is leftover from the old OCAL cchost system and doesn't look very good on
> our new system.
> Compare : First Example <http://www.openclipart.org/detail/67> and Second
> Example <http://www.openclipart.org/detail/64153>
> 4. *Add descriptions to cliparts that are missing it.*
> The search searches descriptions as well as other fields. To have a
> description will help people find the clipart.
> 5. *Request that people upload clipart separately*.
> Or do it yourself.
> 6. *Tag copyright infringeing clipart*. Then Notify the mailing list.
> More eyes = faster finding and dealing with infringement. All cliparts
> should be public domain.
> 7. *Let the mailing list know what you've hidden.*
> This is for better accountability and finding. We are doing the best we can
> but sometimes we make mistakes and others can pick up on that, so that we
> can get accurate info.
> 8. *Notify Mailing list of any cliparts that have a remix on them that
> need sorting out, or unlinking. Same with any cliparts that need linking up.
> Sweet! I know it looks like alot, but it's not really, when you do it a
> little a day.
