Re: A Question for Hosts re Voting Patterns

You will see it in Shadows. What is the vote participation number and where are the personal stats? I do not believe I have the training or experience to rank other peoples photography. I could vote on the one or two entries that I think are above average as the system was designed for and recommended by DPR Staff. But you have made it clear that all entries in a challenge should be voted on. When I don't see a difference, they all get the same vote.

Why follow the suggestion that you should vote on every entry?

Other entrants may enter for the same reason that I do, to get some feedback on how they are doing as a hobbyist photographer. When I get a 5  I assume that it was someone that really liked my shot. Not the case with your voting.

If you don't see a shot in a challenge you think is exceptional why waste your time voting them all as 5's?
