Same clickers

I have noticed that when I look at a photo and read the comments they nearly always seem to be the same people commenting. Is this just a coincidence or is just a small portion of the members commenting and clicking? Anyone else noticed this? Replies are welcome.

Yes Dani, I seem to follow noseprints all over the place!

I think we fall into little groups - all online at the same time of the day and also similar tastes will draw the same people to the same photos.

Also there will always be a core group willing / able to comment more than others.

Maybe some people just look at the forums and read whats going on. I know I sometimes don't have enough time to comment (as I'm at work) but will sneak a read of whats going on!

As I post in the hope that others will view my work, I make a point of trying to get round as many shots as I can. Those who post shots expecting comments, and visits, yet make little attempt to comment on the work of others are, to my mind bordering on being self centered to the point of being up their own......

I think people tend to look and comment on the images that they most like to do themselves. I tend to look at landscapes and wildlife most often, especially if they have a Welsh location. I also try to look at as many as I have time for.
I find it best to avoid the 'adult category' as a whack from behind with a heavy frying pan can be quite painful!

I must admit that I simply don't have the time or the energy to wade through the many photos that get uploaded daily. There's just too many of them. I tend to give help through the forum - if I had more free time, I'd spend more time in the gallery.

If your face fits you have made it.You can put all the rubbish you like on show and you will get lots of OOh`s and AGHH`s.

Very controversial Ron but I don't agree. Have a look at most portfolios and you will find the number of clicks varies wildly from shot to shot. My own portfolio is a good example of this.

There are some people who regularly get high clicks but I havent come across any yet that dont deserve a high number of clicks for the consistent high quality of their work.
