Far more important things than votes on a site...get a life...enjoy the pics and the variety...get a life...someones perspective and opinion is theirs...take your ball and go home...get a life...start your own web page and spew hatred and foul crap...get a life!!!

Good point, El Peon....have posted a few of my own photos and by and large they haven't done very well for the simple reason that most of them haven't really been very good photos, even taking into account the serial troll downvoting to which some of us have been subjected....Antonio needs to understand that owning a camera, even a good one, doesn't make a person a good photographer anymore than owning a football makes one an athlete.....

And another point: For the people who post it's own picture- you must know that users will compare they work with the pictures of the world greatest photographers , so if I post my own picture I don't expect much votes, in fact I'm surprised if that survives one day here ...

I was thinking of a couple of photographers who are well known on the Internet but have somewhat smaller photos. They posted a few of their photos here, but got downvoted very quickly. They both stopped posting. It's not very good for their reputation to get downvoted that much.

I agree with alot you said Connie, but it is not negative to the photographer when we get negative votes because as we all know the votes are not fair here, and are no reflection on the photographers picture.

Good point skip - some folks are too easily influenced and can't think for themselves.

The great majority of us post photos we find on the Web; they are not ours. You have a valid point - we should provide feedback on those photos - even if they are not ours. The votes are supposed to be about the quality of the photos, but that is rarely the case. If the photos you posted were your own work, then I am very sorry that you got such negative votes. In that case, it makes it very personal. When I get my uploads downvoted, it's a negative to the photographer, not me. If you don't stick around, I hope you find a website where you can share your own photos with others, and get feedback - be it negative or positive, but as long as it's constructive and helpful in your photography.

Another thing is, once a pic gets a few downvotes, sometimes people see it in a different way, and sort of like sheep they will follow suit and downvote it,,,I think the person downvoting it, knows that.

I voted for many of your pics...but we have a resident downvoter who is here 24 seven round the clock,, and downvotes everyone many times with outside proxy votes, the trouble is all the regulars suspect each other, instead of realizing this person is causing most of the trouble. So I don't blame you for not enjoying it here...it's definitely not fair,,,but we keep waiting for it to change.

haha cause this site is a joke, I thought it was more about actual sharing of pics and feedback by users etcetera, but is only people posting 1000 pics they dont even own and people voting for no purpose etcetera, didnt find the website fun, and stopped to use it already, but if u find it fun and time-worthy then enjoy it!

What are achieving by going on a hate trail and using foul language?

I went to your file. I see you posted 24 photos and did not do well. I'm sorry about that, but you should not take the voting seriously. There are many posters, including premium users, who vote for the poster not the photo OR fear competition/their ranking OR because the poster is new to the site OR for whatever reason. I just posted my photos; I had not even finished posting that I got downvoted. If you are going to take the votes seriously you will be disappointed. Just keep posting and have fun with it.
