Btw, what is quality for? For attracting people. But LQ isn't a well-known screenshot database yet, so most screenshot visitors would be it's own members. I think many of them would like not only to watch the shots, but to show their own And they would NOT visit it if there will be no submitting/rating/commenting system. That's for popularity, and the quality would come with it

We don't currently have any plans to open LQ Screenshots for public submissions. The site is designed to have a consistent look and feel for each distribution. If there is sufficient demand we can consider a member generated Desktop Screenshot type functionality. We actually used to have this many years ago, but it didn't get much use.

Grobsch- read the thread! At the moment it is only LQ "staff" (for lack of a better word) who are making screenshots.

Hhhmm.. It's because I've made the GoblinX Premium 2007.1 screenshot tour. LQ has the GoblinX Mini tour and mini is the smaller edition of GoblinX, only with Xfce. The Premium edition is younger and bigger.
Here the tour: http://www.goblinx.com.br/goblinx.pr....2007.1.tar.gz

The user generated additions will be part of a future enhancement. Thanks for the patience.

I'm happy to announce that we are now taking user generated submissions for LQ Screeshots! Here's the procedure:

- Capture screenshots with your favorite screen capture application or virtual machine.
- Set the screen resolution to 1024x768, or higher.
- Capture screenshots in any format, such as PNG, JPG, or GIF.
- Name the screenshots as follows: 1.png, 2.png, 3.png, 4.png, 5.png, etc. (assuming .PNG)
- Create an archive of the screenshots.
- Email the screenshots archive to shots _@_ linuxquestions.org.
- Include the distribution name and version.
- Optionally include your LinuxQuestions.org username.

Is it still just for distributions, or is it opening up for various application as well?

If the demand is there, we can certainly open it up to applications.
