Thought id start some discussions and see what folks think about an Inspired By: feature for your designs.
My thinking on this would be that you’ve been scanning the Pinshape database, you see User X has a neat design of a Tree lets say. You are then inspired by User X sharing this design that you take and modify or start a fresh design of User X’s design and upload it yourself. During the upload process a field is available where you then add in User X’s design that inspired you to design the file you are about to upload. Once you have completed your design upload something along the lines of a small sample image and “My design was inspired by “Tree” by User X” could be displayed on your designs page.
Anyways, would love to see what people think about this. Is it a good idea? Have I overlooked something? Thanks!
@Chris_Halliday@joealarson@MorenaP That’s a good idea— I know people currently provide attribution if they’ve remixed a design in the design’s description, but a more straightforward way to link between designs that were inspired by each other is definitely good. And definitely helps with encouraging proper attribution.
That’s a good point, Joe, with the outside attribution for models that were remixed from a design outside that allows for free remixing.
