I support this for two reasons, setting up and maintaining a wiki page, has
always seemed to be rather tedious for the artist as well as the
As an example: the artist has to upload both the file, and the preview of
that file, to make a clickable preview, that does not stretch the page, and
quite often the preview really does the wallpaper no justice. For the
commenter, I feel that there is no way to know when some has responded to
the critique/question, nevermind the trouble leaving some contact info.
I am a huge noob at wiki editing, so if any of that is wrong please set me

All these problems are avoided in the mailing list, artist can attach svgs,
and other files directly. Updates are automatically brought up to be
reviewed/mocked. Older files are also kept in the attachments.The commenters
can remain active in the discussion, and their critique is properly
attributed. Separate discussions and ideas (like this one) can pinch off in
a new thread.

The other/other viable solution would be to use the Ubuntu forums art
subforum, to host the files, with the discussion happening here.
