Landscape post format feedback

Post by par » Tue Jul 06, 2010 10:47 am

Guys, you are awsome!

You have made 6 beautiful live-sky landscapes in 2 days.
That shows the feature is promising and hopefully is going to be popular.
It took a lot of time and work to make it happen.
I am happy it works and that you like it :)

We expect the number of the landscapes to grow over time.
I think we need to to put the landscape organization process in order as early as possible to avoid a mess.

Because of this I have designed a landscape post format.

I think we need the format for many reasons, here they are.

1. Make landscape installation as simple as possible for the user.
2. We need to know if you wish to share your landscape with YoWindow users and let us include it in YoWindow.
3. We need to know the license rights to the original picture (for the same purpose).
4. Easy landscape preview - a screenshot of the landscape.
5. Unification. When landscape posts look similar it is easy to browse through them.

This is the template for the landscape post with comments.

I wish every landscape post to follow this format.

The format of the landscape post is just a draft and is subject to change.

I need your feedback to make it perfect.

What do you think about landscape post template?
Do you like all the fields in the post?
Is it easy to understand?
May I alter your landscape post to confirm to the proposed landscape post format?

Hey Par,

To share the landscape is perhaps better to use the Zip format, as you did with the Coliseum?

The format Zip attachment, upload any size?

Thanks

The file is too big, maximum allowed size is 256 KiB

ZIP can not load the file. This is too big. :cry:

How is it possible?

Sorry, it was a restriction on file size on the forum.
I have removed the restriction.
Now the maximum attached file size is 3 MB.

Hi,

maybe it's an idea to make different groups/sub-groups for the uploaded landscapes like: US, Western Europe, Eastern Europe enz.

when there a lot of more landscapes i think you can find much easier what you like then.

In a couple of months, hopefully, we will create a special web-service with easy search and landscape submission.
