That could work. I think personally the objects should be submitted to aminet and the post here should have a thumbnail with the link.

If the BBS software supports thumbnails for posts (just in the objects section) it would make navigation very quick. Otherwise, I could put together a gallery from the posts here as they are made.
That's great, I have a couple of projects uploaded on Aminet that could qualify. Projects meaning that there are objects, images and scene files inside.

Question is, then, how we should organize the subforums...

We could have a 'Repository' subforum and inside it have 'Full Projects', 'Scenes', 'Objects' etc.
Would that make sense?

That sounds realistic to me.

For search, tags are more helpful than categories (in my opinion). But I don't think any of us have time to develop a web based submission system that supports tags and has a database at the moment :shock:

So yes, I think categories for now :)

A plugin was developed for this purpose, but abandoned since and not maintained. A pity.

I'll make a gallery page that displays submitted images of rendered objects. A download link for the object/scene at aminet will be included.

Members of this forum could have access to a separate page where submissions can be made which will update the gallery.
