We've had a gallery installed since the board went live.  But I've never been sure about what we could put into it.  I thought it might be fun to put ATLA-related and TLOK-related memes and reaction gifs into the gallery.  But I also thought, once more users signed up, we could open the board up to community-wide art contests and feature the contestant's works in the gallery.

I'd love to read some suggestions.

I like both of those ideas. I found a tumblr with Avatar reactions, but it hasn't been updated in 3 years.

Those are good. I was also thinking of having a gallery featuring my collection of Stand-up Amon pics as well as a gallery dedicated to various silly atla-themed icons I've collected during my LiveJournal days.

There is also the possibility of opening the gallery up to the members so they can host their fan art, graphics, or fandom-related pics.  But we'd limit it to ATLA / TLOK related fanworks (for now) and see how it works out.

Double-posting for new info:

I have opened the gallery up to all members.  We're a small community so I don't see a problem with hosting our own works here. I'll be adding directories for you to put your fanworks and original creations in soon.  I'll also be adding a folder for members to post our favorite non-ATLA and non-Korra related memes and macros so that we can share the lulz. :)  Be advised: I've set both file and physical size limitations on uploads.

If we get a lot of stuff coming from bigger fandoms like Star Wars, Harry Potter, Star Trek, etc., then I can create a directory for them to keep things organized.  (Loopy, you can take Star Wars, and I'll take Star Trek. :) ) (So many Red Shirt memes...)

Two rules (for now):
1) Do not post others' works into the gallery.  It is there for you to post your creative works.
2) No porn.  To be clear, porn is defined as posting sexually-explicit works like penetration shots.  Nudes aren't porn.  Two people lying naked next to each other with the implication they've had / will have sex isn't porn.

Recommendations:
Because I've set upload limits, the safest bet would be to post a lower quality pic, then comment with a link off to your art page or blog where the HQ pic can be viewed.  This is a great way to lead people back to your main creative hub(s).
Also, please do everyone a solid.  If you're posting popular memes or other such infamous things, make sure someone else hasn't already posted it.
