Hi Carolyn and welcome to EPZ Smile

If you like a shot enough, you can check the "vote" box to register your liking.

Folks can do this to your uploads too (you can't vote for your own shots, tho')

if you get enough folks who like your work (30) you will see the Reader's Choice box light up under your shot.

If Pete (the Boss) like your shot lots, he can give it an HC (Highly Commended) OR and EC (Editors Choice) award.

All EC's go on to a "final" to be chosen as POTW (Photo of the Week)

Sorry, if this is just adding to the confusion, but I really hope it helps.

Basically, if you like a shot lots, hit the vote button! Wink

You use them to make friends, if you vote for a picture then they will vote for you and when you have enough friends you get a special reward.

Or what Fran said Wink

Hi Carolyn, welcom to the place that is EPZ. A vote, otherwise known as a click (because you click the vote button) is what you give to a photo if you like it. You can also comment on the photo about what you do or don't like about it. There's a lot of chat about votes and clicks, and a often a lot of cynicism in the forum, because some people form groups and just click on each other's pictures regardless of how much they like them, just so they all get more votes and look better for it. Best way is be honest and true to yourself, vote on what you like, comment and interact, and you will make friends, without needing to do an automatic vote-swapping thing..

also bear in mind it's a very big site and what you read in the forums isn't always indicative of the of the overall feeling..

just be yourself and enjoy Smile

for every vote or click made in the gallery a new thread about votes and clicks starts in the forum, where people that don't usually vote or click can moan about those that do Smile

I think that's what they are for LMAO!
