My most popular image on Flickr today

Seen this on a lot of other forums. A nice way to see everyone's work I think!

My most popular today was this image, with 42 views. Feel free to add me, and I'll do the same!

Re: My most popular image on Flickr today

You have some great shots in there, I've added you.

Here's one of mine if anyone wants a look, it's a slightly random collection with a lot of bugs in

Re: My most popular image on Flickr today

I think a nicer way is to post your work on Pixalo rather than just get our members to boost your viewing figures so I've removed your link.

Im not questioning your decision dabhand, moderator decisions are important, however I am surprised this was jumped on yet the post below was not only allowed a couple of weeks ago but encouraged by long standing members. At least pixel pixies post wasn't for any financial gain. Just seems a bit like unfair double standards to me. Bardo wanted us to vote for his pics whether we thought they were best or not.

Re: My most popular image on Flickr today

Whilst I can see where you're coming from, I think there's a world of difference between someone trawling for votes in a competition (which can't be viewed externally) and someone trawling for hits to up their meagre portfolio on another site (which can be viewed externally) - though I visited neither

Of course the irony is that if you link to an external host like Flickr by inserting your image here, you will increase the views received on your Flickr stats - if you think about it, the image stays on the host site and is "viewed" , it's just that it goes via another site

Re: My most popular image on Flickr today

But the stats on Flickr are just a bit of fun and serve no purpose other than it gives you an idea whether people think your photo is even worth their time to look at.

Whereas trawling for votes in a prize competition is basically vote rigging pure and simple. I'd be pretty fed up if I entered a competition and found that the criteria for winning was being on the forum with the most people to vote for me.

I did consider removing this link too, but as there are some contributions from him (albeit small) and although I think that it is undesirable, members can make up their own minds whether to comply or not.

People who cannot be bothered to display their work here for comments or criticism, but want members to go off-site are not participating in our community and almost certainly will not appear on Pixalo again. All they do is post these requests on every photographic site they can find in order to attract people to their hosting site. Pixelpixie has a very low post count and has not posted here for nine months, then posts up asking people to go elsewhere.

So although you might think that the moderating decision is contradictory, it is actually two very different things.

Re: My most popular image on Flickr today

As I said I'm not questioning the decisions of the mods. I run and moderate a gaming website and gaming clan so I know what a pain and hassle it can be at times. I just felt that some clarity / explanation on these kinds of rulings would be helpful for future reference.
I also take note of what Markulous says and yes he is right, pixel pixies actions are down right cheeky but as Helgrrr also (rightly) points out it is blatant vote rigging and where would Pixalo stand on this if another member had also entered said competition and had lost out ? Now that would be a sticky situation I wouldn't envy anyone having to sort out. I am just saying it might be an idea to have a firm ruling on these types of posts.

PS not looking to start a fight, just giving my opinion.

I kind of agree a little here. I didn't vote in the picture comp because the Pixalo posters' photo was not my favourite, so I didn't think it would be right for me to 'just vote'.
