I want to echo some of those comments. As of now, www.openclipart.org
has a developer-ish look----meaning, it doesn't look clean, simple, and
designed for the user. But perhaps that is what is needed/desired right
Has there been a discussion on design? For instance, the "Incoming Clip
Art" panel is nice...but it isn't something that I would consider
essential (as in front page material) for a website aiming towards the
general user---actually, I found it somewhat distracting/confusing.
Overall, I am wondering: Where is the white space? It seems kinda busy.
Anyway, I look forward to any responses.
