Popular Photos

Wed Oct 18, 2000 5:04 pm

I was just having a wander round A.Net and revisted the "Most Popular Photos" section - not surprisingly, it was much the same as last time I looked and the time before that. Clearly, great pictures which have been here for a while will have accumulated a lot of hits which makes it unlikely they will ever be displaced by new additions no matter how good (and there have been some great ones recently).

I would have thought it would be possible to come up with some formula which looked at the hit rate over a set period of time to give a better indication of the shots people like best. I think that such an algorithm would

a) give a better representation of the material on A.Net
b) be more interesting for repeat visitors

Cheers,

I think thats a very good idea. May be it could be divided into two sections:
a.) All time favorites
b.) Most popular fotos in the last x days
ad a.) It would provide a good overlook for first time visitors
ad b.) Nice overview for repeat visitors.

Perhaps

"Most popular photos in the last:
Day
Week
Month
Year
Ever"

would be possible

I think this would increase the "stickiness" of the site and please the advertisers.

Cheers,

I am in agreeance as well, the Best Photos section does suffer from a lack of new additions. While I am aware that "great" shots don't get added every five minutes I do think that the abovementioned idea does have some credibility.

Certainly something for Johan to investigate.

I have to agree with all of you. I think its a great idea and like Craig mentioned Johan might need to examine this further.

My Most Popular

Thu Oct 19, 2000 7:39 am

when I click on photo stats and look up the 120 photos I have on here, I see that the most viewed photo of mine is a USAir DC-9 over-the-wing shot landing, crossing the threshold at MEM.

The fact that THIS one is the most popular; does that tell you anything?

To all you photographers, what is YOUR most viewed shot?

I almost didn't take this photo because of the lighting conditions at the time. When it turned out decent, I still didn't like it for some reason. I almost didn't submit it either! I didn't think anybody wanted to see it. Then it turned out to be my most popular pic. It's weird how things work out that way...

I agree with Colin.

My most popular shot is a not so good cockpit shot - this had me puzzled for a while until I realised that a.net is a great reference source for all those flight simmers who model new aircraft.

Thinking further on the "popular shot" idea, I wonder if it would make sense to add the most popular shot of the month to the great shots gallery? I have no problem with Johan's selections (most of the time), but it would be nice to add the view of the people as well!

Cheers,

Yes Colin... there is something to your opinion concerning cockpit shots.

My most popular shot is the cockpit of a DHC 8-300
