I LOVE the new feature of the non-updating average! That is most excellent!

Now, can we turn off our top row on our profile page? Mine has not changed for two years or so, and I'm really really really tired of it. Can we set a preference so we don't have to see it anymore? Replace it with the last five challenge entries or something?

Just a thought!

I've been enjoying the phase of beating my PB and cycling my top row, very fun. I can see that tis must end due to score limitations, that seems less fun.
How about offering a display "top row for this year" option? So each year you could start fresh and enjoy challenging yourself to beat your own top row again?

I enjoy going to other people's profiles and seeing their highest scoring photos, I wouldn't like this option.

There could be a way to customize it so that the general public sees one thing, but the profile owner sees another.

I never tire of looking at those images of yours....8~)

Yes, please! I'd much prefer to see each photographer's favorites and how they want to be represented. Let the photographer pick the top row. Also, add an option to replace those tacky ribbons on the left with posthumous ribbons.

If you want to view a photogs highest scores you only have to click on the 'down arrow' next to 'Avg' in the top column. (btw... it's interesting to click on the 'down arrow' next to 'Favs' and compare it to the corresponding score column.)

Deb... I'll trade you a 'doll' for a 'sock smelling a rose'.

I think the top row is more for others looking at our profile than for our own enjoyment. I too have had the same top row for several years (until this week when I finally got a new entry).

I like the quick view of the photographer's top rated photos. The second row already can be configured to show the photog's favorite images, and there is already the capability to post photos on your profile page that you'd like to represent your work. I opt for keeping the top row the way it is.

Julianne, that's because you've never been a prostitute, so have nothing to be ashamed of in your top row. I want my public persona to be that of a virgin and not the whore I am. I honestly am more interested in a photographer's favorite photos and not the general public's opinion. It should be an option... nothing mandatory.

I just had to revisit it :P

Yes please! My own top row is mostly embarrassing crap that represents everything that I have come to dislike about photography (of course, I could probably say that about nearly everyone's top row). The point is that almost everyone has much better, more interesting, more inspirational and more durable work in their portfolio, or among their lower scoring challenge images, than is represented in their 'top row'. When I look at someone's profile page I'd like to see where they are going, rather than where they've been.

Not a compulsory thing of course; those who wish to stay where they have been should be able to do so.

Steve, you're too kind. But you are right about my not shooting for the score. I like to shoot the best photo I can based on the topic. Still, there is endless space in the biography section to post the photos you would like to represent you, and that area is seen before the top row.

Head towards the base in Wiesbaden, and it's in the field to the right. :-)

Definitely! Let's trade!

The option of "top row this year" is a reasonable one. Those of us who've been here entirely too long and really don't evolve much simply can't do much about their top row. It gets old.

Bump!

Actually, I'd be willing to pay $50 for the year (at least once) if someone would make the "sort" function easier. When I load stuff that's been in my workshop to my portfolio, it often sets itself in there randomly, rather than chronologically. To use the sort bit takes forever if the folder has a lot of stuff in it! There's gotta be an easier way....

And I still vote for "top row past 12 months" for the old geezers....

i would keep the four high scores on the top row, but allow the user to substitute one of them for a favorite. Title it user favorite instead of putting the average score.

I'd vote for being able to pick your top row. Mine hasn't changed in over eight years...

I'd love to be able to sort images in my portfolio easier as well.

But I still don't agree to turning off your top row or changing it.

Next time someone will want to remove all of their ribbon winners from the left side, or their HM's.......where does it stop?

I don't think it does... Sometimes it's called progress. Others, change for the sake of change. Occasionally it's called a bad idea. But it seldom stops. ;-)

21.gif pointandshoot made a similar request many moons ago. I like the idea Deb.

Karen, what about having it as a preference? You can always sort by score if desired. I would love to choose my five personal favorites for a first impression.

Members already have a 2nd row where you can display any of your photos.

Yes, but some folks use it for new uploads, and it rotates daily, etc.
