I have set up a forum dedicated to inkscape at www.inkscapeforums.com/
We currently have aroumd 30 members and hope to gain heaps more.
Anyway, we are holding our first contest this weeek and the theme is "Paradise".
Users can submit multiple entries and every one gets one vote.
Every week we will hold a new contest and the winner will get to decide the next theme.
We don't have any monetary prizes at the moment, but the plan for the future is to offer gift vouchers for online stores like amazon etc. Also, winners and place getters will recieve medals to place in thier sigs.
So, please come and check out the forums and join up. I want this venture to succeed and grow into massive inkscape community.
