Mageia 5 artwork call: important update

Due to a recent change in Flickr’s login and upload policies, it is no longer possible to use Facebook or Google accounts to access the group. Users must now sign up for and log in with a Yahoo account.

While our ultimate goal is an internal solution for artwork collections, more pressing needs have made this a lower priority.

We had hoped to have a system in place by the time that this switch occurred, however, building ISOs for the upcoming Alpha 1 of Mageia 5 has kept the sysadmin team busy.

In the meantime, please continue to use Flickr, or, if you don’t have or don’t want to create a Yahoo account, feel free to email your work to

    Maybe you could set up a GNU MediaGoblin instance?
    It looks like it could be pretty ideal =)

      I agree, that’s definitely something we should be looking into.

      We’ve discussed some solutions such as owncloud or a WordPress gallery plugin, but nobody competent enough has had the time to look into it yet. I’ve learned about MediaGoblin a few months ago, and I think it could fit our needs too, and it would maybe be simpler/better suited than owncloud or a WordPress plugin.
