well, it does not matter if this service is user based.

/username/ #as user home page

/username/projects/ #as user projects

/username/gallery/ #as user gallery

/username/etc ...

it's just a silly point but from user home page you isntantly know if user 
exists and you instantly know subsections

In your way you assume that there is a gallery for that user while he could 
have created only projects, without galleries.
So one search failed, while to go in the user page I need to digit /user/ 
before, not a big deal but we are in tinyurl and bit.ly era

Google Code put simply a /p/ as prefix plus the project name plus subsection



since you are starting now, maybe you could consider this semantic alternative, 
if it suits your requirements.
