OC.Net member-generated arts and literature
« on: November 01, 2018, 01:56:22 AM »
I think it might be to our benefit if there was some place on OCNet, whether a blog or a Sticky thread, where the creative output of members, like the literary work of Biro, gorgy and Gebre, and the iconography, artwork or musical output of some other members, could be centrally catalogued and shared (to the extent the authors of such work desired to share it with us; obviously this would be completely voluntary).

There are 3 threads already (I can't find the third one, it was about art of members of sth like that, in Other Topics, I believe):

The first link you posted is about Kosovo.   :)

These are very useful.  What I would kind of like to see would be for these to be centralized and stickied, or for there to be a blog or webpage on the master website where such material could be indexed.

Of course, it is obvious, and should remain obvious, and be explicitly stated, if such a central reference is created, that OCNet itself did not write, does not claim ownership of, and is not responsible for, such content, and that the links are being provided merely as an amenity to members and visitors.  And of course I would assume no one would dare try and promote anti-Orthodox content they had created on OCNet.  This has thus far not happened, and I doubt it would, but one occasionally does run into unpleasant people, even here with our very good membership screening and moderation process.
