I think that creating an anonymous account and dropping in all the clipart
is a good idea since there is no garantee that people that submitted the old
cliparts will ever create an account in CCHOST and will therefore want their
cliparts to be listed under their account. If this happens, the user can
write a mail to the list and tell what pieces of clipart he wants to place
under his new account. It's then up to admins to move the clipart under the
Personally I have several cliparts in the old repository submitted under
different names (mo, molumen, lumen design studio and maybe a couple of
others) so I can do it in 2 different ways: 1) resubmit them, or 2) request
them to be moved under my account in CCHOST (molumen).
Also, I think that it would be great to go through all the cliparts and
check them for quality (remove the Illustrator tags to decrease the size of
the files, clean the cliparts by optimizing the curves or delete the
cliparts containing bitmaps for example) and only then move them to CCHSOT.
I understand that it is a trikcy task, but it will increase the overall
quality of Openclipart. I you will need help with that, I am willing to do
it during my free time (mainly during weekends), but I'll need some kind of
admin rights to have access to the cliparts.
