So, as some of you may have noticed, the image team has had a precipitous drop in activity lately. I've sort of let it happen, because I figured things were going better than they appeared. It was only after discussing it with Devereaux that I realized that we were in sad shape. So I'm going to be doing a few changes to kick people into gear again:

  • anq is going to be working with me to decide who to keep among the current team, and who to let go, replacing those people with persons we hope will be able to do the work.
  • Following this, I'm going to be implementing some sort of solid date for when things need to be done, so that people can't think they'll do it eventually, and then never do anything at all.
  • I'll be taking a more direct role in the team, as I've been out of the main loop for awhile.
  • Visual Records is going to be given some priority, with the eventual goal of having it linked more prominently on the site as an officially recognized source of CC compliant images.

So yeah, I'm doing stuff again.

Understandable. I've been having trouble balancing work and extracurricular activities, which is why I still haven't finished 900-999 (though I'm at 970 now). I have no intention of becoming completely inactive, but if it comes down to it, I may have to drop out of the team once I finish. - Accel


This is going to be used to train some of the people we bring on to do images.
