I will not vote for photos of spiders as I won't open them up. There are far too many spider pictures on here lately. Sad

nick's right.... after a few years you get to that point where you get image/subject fatigue and just want to see something different...


Test the voting system

if anyone's up for it, try this...

1 - find someone who gets 70-100 votes per shot AND someone who gets 0-20 votes per shots
2 - get them to "swap" images for 1 day - so they upload the other person's shot to their account, and vice versa
3 - check out what happens the the votes...


Which out come would you predict

a) The uploaders get the same votes as usual, despite uploading someone elses photo
b) the one with high votes, gets a hugely reduced vote - and vice versa
c) something else.... .


Just a bit of fun - I get 1-20 votes most of the time so would "donate" an image to someone with loads of votes Wink

How about

Nice Pic, if you like something.

Horrible Pic, if you don`t.

Dammed if you like something, dammed if you don`t

A nice idea. They would need to be images of a similar genre to what the members usually post, it would be a bit unusual if an image of a robin on a twig was to appear in your portfolio Ade..
