Yesterday, two ideas that had been floating around for awhile finally banged together in my head: Why not create a public photo group where gamers all over the world can share photos of the places where they game?
So I did. It’s called Gaming Spaces, and it’s a photo group on Flickr, a nifty (and free) photo-sharing site.
We’ve talked about gaming spaces on TT before, in VV_GM’s guest post Setting Up Your Game Space and in the forum thread on proxemics and gaming environments. It was the collision with Avlor’s Flickr group suggestion for GM’s Day that made me decide to give this a shot.
It’s pretty sparse right now, but I’m hoping that will change. I don’t know about you, but I love seeing how other GMs set up their gaming spaces — it gives me all sorts of ideas for how to improve my own little slice of heaven.
If that grabs you, I hope you’ll join the group and post some photos of your own!
Great idea! One of these weekends I’ll have to take a few pics and post them to the site.
I’m a Flickr noob as well. I found the “send to pool” link just above each of my pictures — click on one of your photos and check the line of stuff right above it. I believe “add note” is the first link.
There’s probably a batch option, too, if you have a lot of pictures.
Ah, thanks! I was looking for that option from the Your Pictures page instead of opening each picture in turn.
I did it and it worked and go check it out! 🙂
We’re up to 33 members and 48 photos in the pool — not a bad start, and it’s great to see all of the different gaming spaces that folks have shared so far.
