Andy, as mentioned via email:



Members upload images into a "awaiting approval" directory. Whenever any moderator logs onto Globo, he/she can go through the directory and approve the pictures that meet a certain quality, then those images are posted. The rest are deleted. For eg, pictures with member's faces, member's wife, member's grandma and dog and cat, etc will not be admitted in order to maintain a truly professional photo display on Globo - we do not want to become a free photo storage service, do we?

Hello inzaghi,



this was implemented when globo started 2 years ago. It did proof that this is not functional. People do want to see their results imediatelly. The amount of pictures with family and "this is my dog" is really small. I delete about 1 % of the images per day.

I think the real trick is to have great pictures online already. Great quality always atrackts good quality.

Another thing wood be a to create a page with quality examples and tips and tricks to make it better. When deleting a pictures an email will be sent to the member with a link to that page.



Andy

What a good point Andy



I often thougt about this when rating others pictures.

Sometimes i'd like to give a short feedback why I did or didn't like that particular picture. It could be easily implemented with a little tag box with rating possibilites from one to five for the important stuff like color / saturation, brightness / whitebalance / Sharpness / Focus / Image compositon

Perhaps this isn't necessary or possible for every Picture but it could be done in a new category like we discussed with the competition....



Sometimes I don't understand the votes of other members today I saw this picture of angkor wat with a name something like: "elephant terrace" (Another reason for a country specific picture search). As far as I could tell It was of small photographic quality the brightness was not so good it looked overexposed, it wasn't sharp you couldn't make any details out... When I encountered this picture it had a ***** rating ....

Hi Andy / Inzaghi



What about a new forum where one can post a picture and then we can have a discussion about it.



For instance we have uploaded a picture that we like very much, (we might even think this is a perfect shot) and It doesn't get high ratings. The same could be done with a picture from another member too but I'm not sure wheter he would like it.



I'll put in an example of mine's (yeah im whining ;-) )

http://www.globosapiens.net/mortimer/picture-botta-church-in-mongo-9570.html





When talking about the particular picture, one would perhaps be helped to understand what kind of quality is liked and searched in this community by other members!

Fellow members could give tips to enhance that picture digitally, tips for future shots, tips for....



I don't know, just an idea...



Martin

... the brilliant rating system solves over/underrating automatically. If we could get members to rate pictures more offen (and get points) and an option like for reports to include a comment. This will solve itself quickly.

...I agree with Martin that some guidance is needed somewhere for rating (also generally) but as I said somewhere before, a picture of a remote place is worth 100x more than a tourist shot. I always look and rate quality first then add or deduct a star for originality. Is that OK?

Also, is there a way of uploading directly into an album? That would increase the quality under "pictures". Pictures like http://www.globosapiens.net/marianne/picture-is-this-all-chinese-to-you-13063.html are great in an album.
