I am surprised that out of my last 18 pictures only 2 have been rated. Is this general or is the whole world sending me a message?

Hi David
I observed same thing. But what happens - when I logged on after weekend I saw on the front page that is 298 new pictures. Most of members probably don't have time or willing to rate / see them all. Moreover you can see only 50 latest pictures on the front page so if you missed this one before - you don't know who posted which pictures.
It is pity because (for me) comments and ratings are priceless.
btw your pictures are great.

Same with my pictures. I still have unrated pics I uploaded more than a week ago. Frankly speaking, I do not rate pictures very often - usually I do it only if I particularly like something or dislike something very much. When I feel like giving 3* I usually don't vote at all. I almost always vote when leaving a comment.
I'd like to become a more active voter, but recently I haven't had too much time, unfortunately. I'm happy to find a few minutes a day only to upload some pics and share my travel experiences with other Globies.

Hi,

It is most definitely my fault. I have been flooding Globo with all sorts of material, hence overwhelming members. And I am not a very good rater, either. Like Adam, I tend to rate when I really like a photo. Sometimes, I just leave a comment without giving stars...

I will try to catch up over the next few weeks - not much travel planned.

Kind regards
Krys

Thanks for the replies. I do rate a lot but I must admit that some other preoccupations have made me negligent recently and yes, I am less likely to when there are huge numbers to be seen.

When I was active I rated every picture. Then I gave up because members were uploading almost identical pictures to gain points! I am willing to continue rating if the un-rated list is eliminated. There are currently 2878 unrated pictures. If ten of us rated 20 extra pictures a day we will be through the list within two weeks.

Please help!

PS: if you find two photos almost identical rate the first or best well and the other one-star* with a note "Double" or "This image is uploaded twice. See also [URL]"

If you would like to check your own gallery for doubles to delete some, use "sort by date uploaded" or "sort by date taken" in your gallery.

I have just reviewed all my photos. I deleted, I think three duplicates. There are few very similar ones in my gallery - I thought about them and decided to leave them in, as they are well composed in the idea of the albums I put them in...

I will try to rate some photos in a few days, but I am not bothered if mine are unrated. I do not post photos for the sake of rating. I post them to build up my travel page for my friends and family to see. I am also very glad to share the views of the world that I had enjoyed!

If there are any photos you would like me to delete, please do let me know and I will consider it.

Kindest regards
Krys

The list of never-rated pics is getting shorter: 2520 :-) That is 11% of pics I want to still rate or that is only 3,5% of the entire main gallery. We are winning :-)

Krys, ask your family and friends how many of your 3600 images they have really looked at. I found the interest in material is most effective if only the best are uploaded. I have a lot of my 2. choice images on hard-disk or at image-hosting websites.

I cannot repeat often enough how important rating is to the community. It is only after about 10 ratings (ten reviews) that material finds itself in the right place, ie the best is shown first and the worst is hidden at the bottom. Is is a "beautification" method! There are a lot of "gems" never rated or incorrectly placed because they were only rated once :-(

Hi,

I asked around. And I found differences in opinion. Well, the main difference is between my friends/family and me. They want to see more pictures and more albums. Particularly albums! And with albums, the composition is important, and it often it makes sense to show an object (be it scenery or a piece of architecture) from different angles, which on individual basis may seem repetitive. The trick is that they would want my photos to be rated - as high as possible, obviously.

I, however, do not submit photos for the sake of rating. And this is where I differ with my friends/family. I do not care whether my pictures remain unrated or not. I do not treat this as a competition. Of course, it is so great to be rewarded with POMs and AOMs, but the purpose of me submitting these shots is to share. That's it.

I can also a share a secret here... I have taken about 500,000 photos on my travels, and it is a difficult choice what to submit. And I only select photographs, which in my opinion are at least four star quality... ;) No, really!

Kind regards
Krys
