One thing that we tend to focus on here is user generated content... All of our sites tend to revolve around that. Allowing people to create art and share.
Monetization of such systems... is not exactly easy or profitable. One Canvas and Baka Renders don't make enough money each month to pay what we spend to run this place...
A concept I've had a monetizing is offer webhosting services. Generally speaking... this would be a content management system most likely wordpress with pre existing options for hosting and maintaining a place to store works... or just generic hosting. Ideally... Prices would be somewhere under $7 a month in a shared hosting environment with everything maintained for you.
Goal is to over simplify it but still give people a place to show their work under their own domain name. Do let me know if you have even the slightest interest in this... And other details like what would need to be included for you to be interested, or what you would like as options. This more of a concept at the moment than any solid product.
To clarify... this would be external from OC.
