7. Some questions on exactly what you're asking for....
How would copyright issues be handled? Using a third party image hosting service takes the legal burden off of DU. How would you propose a method which protected DU from legal action?

Would all the pictures be public domain? If so, who would be in charge of vetting the material to ensure that it was?

How much space should be allocated in your opinion?

Who should be allowed to upload?

Should there be a limit on how much a particular person uploaded?

How long should an image remain? What mechanism would be used to remove the files when they have "expired"

I'm not trying to discourage you from your requqest- I think it's a great idea. But there are legal and resource issues that, if you address them in a clear mission statement, would make the idea much more attractive to Skinner, I'd imagine.
