Oh I mean it. Not to happy with the voters right now. I'm actually upset for the first time about the activities of this site. Once TPL is over I'm done.

Yes TPL always attracts the lowballers, and I'm not in TPL, I'm sure yours will go up, mine got to 4.50, and climbed to 5.56 so far, it is disheartening, but in the past few weeks my scores have started low and climbed almost a full point by the end.

Why does TPL attract lowballers? [genuine question from a non-member who doesn't actually know what TPL is, shuffles off to investigate]

I just got an 11.8 from a single vote. I guess people are going back up upping scores?

I feel you on that. I specifically entered a non self portrait because they always seem to get killed, at least mine do. Not that I am doing all that well with my entry though.

Doesn't say much when I say my 5.7 is exceeding expectations.

I've got a 4.6 as well, and I'm not even in TPL.

I knew my score wouldn't be so hot, but was hoping for some comments. Alas, none so far.

because some people have no idea how to play a game for fun.

Lowballers have been around forever, why is TPL at fault? Look at every challenge thread of the last couple of months, constant complaints of low votes. Same story, different day.

some true knockouts in there. i love portraits, well done.

You have rated 115 of 118 images (97%) in this challenge.
You have commented on 13 images (11%) in this challenge.
You have given an average score of 5.9652.

i gave out a ton of 7 and 8s, i thought for sure the avg would have been higher.

I absolutely love portraits. I almost dont want to look at the entries, for fear they'll make me feel completely inadequate as a photographer.

I beg to differ thats exactly what I entered and it isnt doing much better :)
03/13/2013 09:14:37 AM · #22
Doing pretty much as I expected with a "what the heck do I enter" entry. 3.8 at present.

do it, its worth it, it shouldn't make you feel inadequate, it should give you something to strive to if you don't feel you are up to that level.
