While I can see clearly the benefits of announcing the submissions to the
mailing list, I totally fail understanding why it must be mandatory?

Is it that difficult to check the flickr groups once in a while? Do you know
how much time it takes to click a few links and check a couple of galleries
vs. the time spent creating a wallpaper?

Personally, I'll be more than happy to see my submissions discussed on the
list, but I won't make any announcements.
