Posted a comment on a featured e2 photo a couple of days ago which has not appeared on my recent activity page. My comments was honest, not rude or vindictive, I expressed my opinion which was that i could not understand why such a poor image was a featured E2 photo and that i thought the image was very poor, then apologised with a sorry.

The image made such an impact on me that i cannot remeber who posted it but it was called....I think "Jack Again" and that it was a black and white portrait of some thai guy in big shades.

Anyway, beacause I have expressed my opinion it would appear that this is not liked by someone here and therefore my comment has not been added or else why does this not appear on my recent activity page.

If anyone knows the image i am on about then let me know the link and we can see if my comment appears, or if you are a moderator for e photozione or whatever you teccie lot call yourselves, perhaps you could shed some light.

Gagged or not ?

Featured E2 photo is chosen by computer, not by the photo merits. 3 years here, you should have known by now.

If it doesn't stay in your recent activity page, then probably the OP has deleted the photo.

I think the "featured" phots are random and not picked by a someone but rather a machine.

Quickdraw Coleslaw beat me to it.

why didn't you just report the problem using the link at the bottom of the page? perhaps the image has been deleted and as far as I'm aware the photo's that feature are selected radomly among (not by) the E2 members so anyone is a member could get a featured image at any time Smile

EDIT: must type quicker Wink

What you may consider poor is not what others may think. Did you say what was poor about it and how it could be improved?

Thanks for your replies. As for being on this site for 3 years now Coleslaw I obviously don't spend as much time on it as yourself, but thank you for enlightening me, i do indeed know now and as you all say the images are picked at random, that to makes a lot of sense now.

Anyway i have a life to get on with...thanks again .

Yeah the E2 Photo is picked randomly, rubbish image or not. Its RC's, EC's and HC's that are seleted by hand.

I can find absolutely no record of a deleted comment in your profile - I assume the post never actually registered with the system or the Epz hamster fell of its wheel again!

Or someone forgot to click the submit button, as I often do, and then blame the mods. That's par for the course.Wink
