i came up with this idea today:
why dont we have a texture colaboration fest? where members have say a week, or a couple of days, to go out and take photos or whatever of good textures, then everybody posts them. it would be a good way to get some really nice textures into the community, especially as it seems new blender users are not very profficient with texturing. There could be a competition with a theme, or just a collaboration of textures.
what do you think?
