The support pages will answer most of your questions (apart from the DPC related ones :))

You can post whatever you like. It's not DPC with editing restrictions. It's more like flickr

I've been figuring to just post and see if it gets attention on its own. Thats a good "function" for it. Yesterday, I had a 0 views, 0 score most of the day until 2 kind DPCers saw it :) Still a photo I like, and I wonder.

Today I posted a different shot and immediately got 4 views, 3 votes and 3 comments. So I guess you have to get lucky that the people looking at the what's new are interested in your photo. But then what...that was an hour ago, and no new activiy. So I presume I'm out of "what's new".

I liked the premise of 500px if it gave you additional exposure (and without us boosting each other). The juries still out. Or maybe the boosting is a good idea. :)

IMO, artificial elevation by friends/colleagues is merely an ego-building exercise for image placement on the site and is no indication of the true level of interest in your work by the site population beyond your known acquaintances.

*Just guaranteed that now no one here will like any of his pics* :)

I don't completely agree with one part of that...you can't get feedback from strangers unless they see it. What we really need is a chain of people, from DPC, not to artificially elevate it but rather to look at it, and only vote if you like it. That elevates it so maybe it will be seen, but not falsely.

And in fact, that's what I've been doing. If you got a comment from me that I liked it, it was sincere. However, I have refrained from offering critical comments, even if I saw them. Mainly because I the site is more for promotion than for feedback.

I don't disagree with you on that Neil.

So how does this work, anyway? How do they ever get seen by anyone? I uploaded a slew (probably should have just done a few). Hardly any views on new ones today, some love on the weekend on others.

These are the ones that were rated the highest -- but they're so few views, and don't seem to get anymore.
this one this one this one and that one

Could someone please explain the process?

thanks! :D

never saw the balloon one before, added it to my favs.

from earlier in the thread:

it was explained in another thread and possibly this one that the rating scale starts at 500px start day which is 12:00am in some time zone, not sure which. you have 24 hrs to get as many votes as you can in that 24hrs and you keep climbing up the pages. once the next day starts all the images uploaded the day before, drop. and the newly uploaded images start to make there climb.

so you want to upload your image as close to the start day as possible and start getting as many votes as possible.


ETA it also help to have lots of friends following you, which was an unintentional good side effect of this thread. I also generally anyone that favs my images or follows me. if i follow an artist i come across, a few days later the usually fav me as well.

Just stumbled across this thread.
If anyone cares to have a look at the few pics I've submitted this shot has had the best response so far....
