For context: On the original thread there was already the remark that it might be problematic if getting featured is a (primarily) awarding and motivating people to get featured.
I talked about something related to this with @Erioldoesdesign during this month’s call. I’ll wait for July monthly call notes and their opinion to discuss this further.
As on the original thread we might or might not want to show names
I’m strongly for showing names because it will help out the person get more outreach (which is a plus for those doing work for gratitude) and that matters a lot as a designer imo.
Also, it’ll be cycled monthly so everyone can participate actively for it.
Since monthly updates often fail to be done and given that I like that work is featured, what about “design work from the community” or so?
My main concern with the monthly stuff is how we would choose to display work if there are more than 6 entries, will we decide who to keep or do we let the gallery extend till it includes all?
About the monthly “cycle”, right now I can’t think of a solution that would automate this. We could do it manually and that can work out but we could try out something else.
We could keep the process manual by the Designers, they could open a PR to have their work added to the gallery. After review from the admins or managers (not members), their work could replace the oldest design from the active 6 gallery, provided the work to be replaced has been on the showcase for a month at least, otherwise the PR will wait to be merged. This could go well with the “Latest design work from the community”.
This is just an idea that I think could work long term but open to improvements/suggestions.
Do we already have some format/process to get the projects featured in a technological sense (manual markup change?)
Manual markup change seems likely unfortunately.
