Give it a go Pete, if it doesn't work - then you can take it down, but at least lets try it!
Quote: And the point is.......
err....... that seeing more photographs is a good thing, maybe?
Well described outline of the game.....it's flown right over my head !!
ok - bad description...
in a nutshell, you choose which photo is best from 2 that appear on screen
I thought the gallery had enough for us to trawl through....
Better description ...cheers.
It's loads faster than the traditional gallery and a different away of viewing photos, so not really more of the same, rather a new slant on it....
Are all photos elligle Pete oe is it a separate upload ?
Same photos - totally different viewing experience and rating system
Perfect. No extra effort uploading will be a winner

Great minds...we have something based on the old "hot or not" approach that's already scheduled for build and coming soon It will feature an experimental new rating system that is planned, if successful, to replace the challenge gallery and give us what we always intended that to be - the best pictures of everything. Our challenge gallery idea never worked correctly which is a shame because we'd already be six years into the new system, but we went wrong by having a score out of ten and it was tainted by the usual corrupt voting system. Our new versus gallery will not replace the existing system, but compliment it as another way of viewing the gallery.
Just watch "The Social Network" and pause it on the dorm room window
(Although not actually checked to see if the algorithm shown in the film is correct).
Turns out it's just Elo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system
So when's this thing going to happen then?
And will I be able to find it? I can't find anything else on here.

In a few weeks all being well

I've uploaded about 30 shots on this other site to see what the "site taste" is - as an experiment.
It's interesting - it seems that massively over-processed, over saturated, over sharpened and halo-tastic images are the way forward!
That aside, you can see how the algorithm works - you are often presented with 2 images which you struggle to choose from
Does make you "think" a little, purely subjective of course.... but I was going for the one that "felt" better, if that makes sense? Ones where there was a bit more story/humanity/emotion - over the ones that had Nik Colour EFEX ramped up to 11
Can't wait for it to start on here - get the whip on the IT team Pete
How's this feature coming along Pete
it's coded and now just waiting for design and then in-house test before we launch as beta
nice one - be interesting to see how it fairs with the masses
count me in for the beta
