Nice idea. With everyone of us making tutorials, sending the video to an admin who then posts it on the channel.

What's wrong with it?

I don't have facebook or twitter, but one who has could get one for Gimper and link to one tutorial every day (doesn't matter on with webpage). I mean, cmon we've got +70 users online all the time (mostly guests but nevermind).

Cyrilshark wrote:Hey Gimper,

So I was looking around the good ol' interwebs, and most people seemed to think that if you need some popularity, a good idea is to start a blog and/podcast.

Blog-wise, it would be neat to implement it directly into Gimper, like make a min page instead of going straight to the forums and putting it there, but I don't think it would work. Instead, we could do something like Gimper.net/blog, though I have to ask Gimper how to do that. We would need some people to apply and be blog writers, and judging by quality of post and writing skills, be accepted or denied.

Podcast-wise, we would need a good quality podcast. I'm going to getting good quality audio equipment for Christmas hopefully, and I've always wanted to do a podcast. If anyone else wants to volunteer to help, it would be great.

Discuss.


Another really good idea is to get the forum involved into Posterous, and submit some of the more informative topics as a blog post. This could drive traffic to this site quickly. As well as stumbleupon, digg, reddit.

The problem is that there are not enough active members to start such things at the moment :/ I'd still say a Youtube channel with tutorials by EVERY user (after a Mod/Admin checked it) who wants to submit one would be the best.

Well that is exactly why i give my flickr and gimp rocks blog links in my sig.That leads to other forums such as this one.
If you give the links in all your sigs for all your forums you will attract other members.
I have the link to my blog in all my sigs because my blog has links to all my forums i use.
As well as some really handy links to the coolest scripts and downloads. <- shoutout for me! LOL

I think the Youtube-idea might work, in fact I know some useful tricks that I could make a tut of. But there is this language problem: for me it's a bit hard to write anything sensible in english.
