Purpose of Commons 2.0?[edit]

I'm sorry, I don't quite understand the purpose of Commons 2.0. The page says, "...a new and active Graphist Community, which we can call Commons 2.0." What do people mean by "graphist"? Someone who edits images uploaded by others? Someone who draws new images and illustrations? And how it is "2.0" compared to the rest of Commons? Once I understand the goal, perhaps I'll find that I can help. JimDeLaHunt 01:54, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

I think the point is a community of collaborative graphics creators and editors, rather than perhaps the case at the moment where most people just do their own thing and there is little editing of each other's work. (Major exceptions being IFC and FPC I suppose.) I think some serious documentation about graphics editing methods would be a good start. :) e.g. how to convert a PNG to a proper SVG in Inkscape. pfctdayelise (说什么?) 06:24, 29 September 2007 (UTC)
