We need the custom gallery written and incorporated into vbulletin V6 and a front page portal to look like the Images, provided incorporating images from the gallery along with recent threads and latest news from within the forum.
In our forums, we require a Gallery Submissions category structured something like this:
When a member posts their work into one of these areas, the image will automatically be added to their member gallery (accessible from their profile - this needs to be a link to it can also be added to their signature etc). They also need to be able to specify a "category" when they post, such as "SCi-Fi", "Fantasy", etc.
Moderators / Administrators will then be able to "Accept" the image from the "post moderation" or "thread tools" menus in the vBullitin forum and this would then add the image to the main CGEmpire gallery.
It would then be possible to filter the galleries (main CGEmpire gallery, or member's gallery) to show only "2D Artwork" or "Fantasy" art - or even "2D Artwork and Fantasy".
Any image in the main CGEmpire gallery would be a canddidate for the random gallery thumbnails displayed on the front-page portal.
A member would be able to add a little bit of information about the image submitted which will be displayed when the full version is clicked.
An image would be selectable by admin or moderator in the thread tools to include as a featured image across the screen in the forum ( see images provided)
Moderators or admin could choose to make an image ELITE in the thread tools where it would be place in the elite gallery
