Interesting.........


i liked it... yesterday, when you posted.


I got an appeciated follow from you but no like maybe 500 px playing up

So is the game to follow loads so they follow you so you get more exposure? This that how it works?

i dont think you get any notification unless they are favorites, i'll go back and fav your image.

i took a quick look through your portfolio yesterday but i was at work and unable to carefully examine some of the content :)

i think it help the more followers you have since any new image you post usually show up in their flow as well as other images you like. i generally try to go through and follow everyone that takes the time to follow me.

since i followed you i have lots of your likes showing up on my flow page.

Oh well, iguess a lot of people have figured out how 500px works. I will be lucky if my photo makes it to the upper half of page 2, now cuurently at the bottom half.

But just for fun, we can actually set one day as dpc members day in 500px. We all start at midnight canada time, we all have fresh uploads, and we let each other know about it.

And no, this doesnt change anything in 500px. Its just that we're all helping each other out give our photos enough exposure. At the end of the day, the truly outstanding photos are mostly the ones that stay on page 1.


i was wondering if i uploaded too early, i did it at 6am EST.

in the end it got to 97.2

that was fun but too much work. it did manage to get 259 views though and i got some new followers.


Thats great! I guess as long as you have more than 12 hours before the next day begins, you should have more than enough time to get exposure for your photo. In my case, midnight at server is my lunch break noon here.

As for my current upload, it's actually picking up in score, Now at 97.6, but losing position as other really good photos are being scored deservingly higher. The highest it got was first row of page 2 at 96.0, but now im at page 5. Hopefully it stays there until i wake up tomorrow.

Is there a way to see who is following me? My problem is I get the notifications in my email that someone has followed me and then I don't get around to following them back. (Bad Craig! Bad!)

yes, once you login, go to "You" menu and from drop down click on "Activity". here you should be able to see who all you followed and who are following you.

If you look at your main page there is a little arrow just under the top area with stats. When you click it you will see an additional panel with Following and Followers, or go there directly with this link:

I have no idea how that site works, as I just joined. I uploaded a collection of pet images, and as everywhere they go, Great Dames seems to be making a splash. But if we actively have to elicit votes to be seen there, it's likely I won't be seen much...

i dont think you need to elicit votes, as your followers will see your images.

i started this thread to see how hard or easy it was to get to the front page.

To get to the top of Page 1 up you need many more votes and faves than there are active DPC members.

PS I checked the first 10 page in popular and can't find them - what is your highest score at the moment?

PS2 Just found you and Followed. You need a score over 99 to get to Page 1. My highest was 99.7 with 363 Votes and 208 Favorites. That's more than there are DPCers votes in any challenge. But I think DPCers got me from #8 on Page 1 to #1 :) I don't mind that. Thanks again.

Only if it deserves the recognition. Don't like it if you don't like it.

This is a great idea, though. Exposure is probably 30% quality and 70% who you know/how you market/who sees your image...etc. etc. So, I think this is a good thing, provided the images are worthy of praise.

I think it is the reverse - 70% popular look 30% who sees your image
