I don't know what you mean when you say "images" with negative votes increase the rating. The FAQ page says that negative votes, given by people to my pictures or comments - do not affect my rating. Frankly, I don't care one way or another about the votes per se, I just don't like where the trend of negative voting is taking us, that's all. Being on the first page of Newly Added is like running the gauntlet! ;-) ;-)

yes,images with negative votes increase your rating, down vote one of your photos when the traffic is low and see for yourself what it happens.

The rating is only increased, on my part, by uploading pictures and making comments. It is increased by other people when they vote positive either on my comments or pictures. Negative votes - either on my comments or pictures - do not affect the rating. So, if in a few hours I have done no action on my part and my rating has gone up 100 votes but I cannot see any evidence of it either in my picture votes or comment votes, it means that for each positive vote I have been given one negative one. I know that! That's why I stuck the smiley on the 'third dimension'. - There must be some fundamental difference between my humour (which is Northern European) and the prevalent type of humour on Pixdaus, which seems to be predominantly American (USA). But I was NOT joking about the trend for overall negative voting.

In terms of rating, positive and negative votes increase your rating anyway. Posting a comment brings your rating up too. Participating with good or bad photos or making a constructive or rude comment makes the rating strong and active. That is what advertisers are looking for.

Thanks for the compliment, CBG! Your pics are good as well, I particularly like the Bilbao one, and the penguins... Yes, the negative voting is getting out of hand! It is a relatively new trend to vote EVERYTHING down; only those who post at the turn of the day (which for me is 2 o'clock in the morning) seem to get anywhere. I have also noticed that it is the posters (not all, mind you) who vote other posters' pictures down, especially if they are good ones! Very sad; and petty. Between when I posted my pics and now, my rating has gone up about 100 votes, but the pictures do not show it. Strange. There must be a third dimension where they go... ;-)

Unbelievable! When I wrote my first comment above, the pic has 4 votes. Now it has -1 ! Damn permanent contravoter! (With my newly added pics it's the same...) :-(
