Hello,<br><br>Becoming a librarian? Count me in!<br><br>I would gladly review new clipart and put tags,<br>I could also generate png thumbnails where they're missing,<br>or re-arrange files where there _are_ png but not-on-top.
<br><br>I would less happily clean-up images, but if it means only fixing boundaries then it's OK;<br>please explain what is needed.<br><br>And what about this Style-Guidelines thing that Freedo put on the Wiki?<br>Will we use it or it's just an idea that didn't catch?
<br><br>Cheers,<br><br>Papapishu / Joanna Pszenicyn<br><br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 06/01/2008, <b class="gmail_sendername"><a href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"<br><br>Seems lately that I am doing almost all the librarian work on the<br>site. If there are people on the list that would be able to assist in<br>the librarian job I can give them admin status to help out. Basically
<br>you just need to review some of the new files that come in and see<br>that they conform to the site guidelines - <a href="http://openclipart.org/wiki/Guidelines">http://openclipart.org/wiki/Guidelines</a><br> - as well as just being valid SVG files. There is also work to be
<br>done with items marked for clean-up. Currently their are over 100<br>files that need some type of clean up. While it would be nice if all<br>submitters followed the guidelines and fixed their problems, it just<br>isn't the reality.
<br><br>The link errors on the site do not make the job of getting to all<br>these files easy. I have had to figure creative ways to find some of<br>them when the "cleanup" "pd_issue" and other links fail at certain
<br>marker points. But any help staying ahead of the job is much<br>appreciated.<br><br>We could also benefit from the admins enriching the tags field on alot<br>of the clipart. Many of the submitters leave this blank or have just
<br>one very generic word such as "icon" for the tags. I imagine those<br>submitters for whom English is not their primary language find it<br>especially hard. Right now tags are the only efficient way to find a
<br>category of art so the tags are very important.<br><br>Anyway, if anyone wants to lend some help I can explain the librarian<br>job in better detail to them.<br><br>Johnny Automatic/john Olsen<br>-------------- next part --------------
