I have some questions about the comment and rating system here.

It is possible to comment a photo but sometimes my comments are not visible ore my comments are visible with my comment but for e.g with marking as an visitor of a different country!

I know that sometimes the votes are, let em say, not real just to keep the average rating down! But now I found a new funny thing:

Most of my pictures have round about 15 votes. And most of these pcitures have a few thousand hits. Now I have a picture with onyl 243 hits but 16 votes??? And an other picture with nearby 12.000 hits (in two days) has les sthan five (or maybe no vote) or an average less than 3.0!

And the last question: Is it possible to see the vvotes for every single pciture?

I don't pay any attention to the ratings on my photos. Too easy to manipulate, and personally, I'd never go rate a photo as 1, 2, or 3 stars anyway. I'll rate a photo high, but never low.

If I could leave a comment without rating the photo, I would. Have to admit I think the whole rating thing is pointless; and having to rate a photo to leave a comment is really unnecessary.

I do look at the comments left on my photos, and also sometimes check if they were added to people's photo albums. Those are much better indicators of a photo's popularity, I think.

I'm not even very confident in the view counter anymore, seeing as it swings back and forth these days.



"Two and a Half Men" was filmed in front of a live ostrich.
