EPZ the village. This is a site for local people. The old boys network, that might be the problem.

Yeah, let's experiment with our photography and leave the website experiments to the developers. This thread screams "nothing better to do" zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

These threads are now so common the people that used to comment and vote have decided they have had enough and stopped voting.

At least that my excuse Wink

If everyone is so fed up with this type of thread, why do the usual suspects always contribute to them?
I look through and the regular wind up merchants are in here fueling the fire. Let the newbies get on with it, they will learn as we all have had to that you get from the clicks whatever you want to. If you like to social click so what, if you don't, then don't participate, it's simple. Don't complaint about others getting more clicks through that avenue though.
There will always be those that comment honestly and vote the same way, just value those peoples opinions and go with the flow on the rest.

My view is that you take it too seriously, in the end this site is also for fun and as other community like flickr people wants to play in the team, if you got a reciprocal click you might have found a new e-photo mate a click doesn't say necessarily that your photo is cool or that Mr Ansel Adams was an amateur compared to you, there're fab shots which take less clicks than a plain flower or a dull landscape, that's the spirit of the community!

At last, a voice of common sense.
It's obvious to all that all sorts of clicking, back patting, bias towards a certain type of shot and everything else goes on and it's just a reflection of normal life. Like many others, I enjoy the site for what it is and what it offers.
Interestingly, the majority of the membership deserve more credit - some of you may remember Pete posting a 'bogus' EC - maybe 3 years ago? The shot was, quite honestly, awful. Far from joining the 'me too, great work' brigade, quite a lot of people came right out and said they couldn't understand the EC, they thought the shot was simply bad.

Hard to vote on a critique gallery shot, boony. Besides, even if I could vote on it, you wouldn't want to me to do that unless I really liked it, would you...
