There are several existing photo management tools where you can do such 
things - like rating, categorizing, adding metadata, filtering images 
according to metadata.

IMO there are two main hurdles:

1) You need to write a tool, that downloads images from the WLM category 
an possibly add some XMP metadata to the image (if needed.. like 
uploader, categories, URL)

2) You need a photo management software that is able to work in a 
multi-user scenario (with a shared database).

 From what I have heard, DBGallery can work in multi-user mode (but I 
never tried this). I myself use ACDSee - it's fast even for large 
amounts of images and has lots of functions to handle metadata 
(including ratings and categorizations), search and filtering. But the 
downside of ACDSee is (as far as I know), that only one user can access 
its internal database at a time.
