What I find funny about mine, and am surprised I didn't see mention of it from others who even partly thought their score could be legit, is how I've more Votes than Views ... which, unless there's some super secret way of voting through code versus viewing each image, would be impossible. Dead giveaway. :)

the same way you guys trusted it on 4/2/06. and 4/2/05. and probably 4/2/04.


How can we trust anything when you can't even write the dates the right way round....mmmuuuuuuuuuuwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!

I don't care about the date. Was it you? If it was or not I don't think that is funny.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. Of course if false scores are being recorded I'm in for a terrible fall.

And MPRPRO its April fools day, and its just for fun anyway. As suggested by the OP you responded too just relax and when tomorrow gets here the site and the scores will be back to normal. Which means I will be hammered into submission in the mid to low 5s.

I am not mad just disgusted that so many think a site like this is a joke. Years ago I loved this site and learned a lot from it. I couldn't understand why the Manager of my local Camera Shop warned me not to get too involved, and it has gone downhill since then.

As I said before, except for a few great photographers I have met through this site, it isn't worth my time anymore with idiots making a joke of people's hard work and art.

Mind you constructive advice even if I don't agree is welcome and I completely understand. But these people who could shoot straight with a point and shoot shouldn't be allowed to comment.

Hi Judi,

You know I love your work. I understand it is a joke, my problem isn't with the score it's the DNMC comments. I don't appreciate the joke if that is a joke. Simple as that. I don't think it is funny.

Yowza - people gettin' panties in a bunch over an April Fool's Day joke? Not good. Relax. Enjoy the day. Short-sheet someone's bed.

I will say my Free Study probably doesn't meet the challenge. I've not studied very hard, and the shot wasn't free, as I believe I had to pay for parking that day. I just don't know how The Powers That Be knew that.

Hmmm...well, I'm very disappointed my current score is NOT lower than my featured photo's score. I wonder if they are going to fix that...?

I went ahead and marked my DNMC comment "helpful."

I don't want to hurt their feelings...;-)

Hear hear! I'll bet most of us have been caught by this or the "featured" photo prank. I know I was - I thought it was hilarious once I realised what was going on.

all this is nothing..you should have tasted the concoction my kids made for me to drink, a "special drink for Daddy"...yowsa!

Should we survey? How many people have more votes than views?

Votes: 34
Views: 30

I'm guessing that there is some April Fools joke of an algorithm being applied. For example, if you get a real score of 9 or 10, add another score of 1 - if you get a real score of 1 or 2, add another score of 10?

Maybe not the second one because you could end up with people having scores go down substantially when the hoax is over.

Any other theories? :D

But the important question is do they know how much life insurance you have? :-) Gotta watch those "special drinks"....

Sounds plausible. Just got another vote with no view added. Score also dropped again. Must be one of those added 1's!

The one comment I have received simply says "dnmc 1", how can my picture DNMC in a free study?

Hahaha! I got the same one! :-) But you're beating me. I'm at 4.53.
