It's not unusual, as we have some members who are married, others that are friends, some go out and shoot together. So, you'll find that quite a bit.


yea I know... just while you're voting its like a head trip, I'm like "havent I voted on that already?" hehe

This sucks!

I think some are balancing out there vote pattern at the last minute of the challenge by putting in a lot of 4 and 5 votes. I guess to balance out the low or high votes they gave out earlier in the challenge. As a result many entries have dropped. I have went down .1500 since in the last 12 hours. More votes in the last 12 hours than the prior two days. Go figure!

Think for yourself man! The image should speak not the damn title! From now on, I'm titling all my images "..."


Be careful. I thought once giving a catchy little title to one of my photos would help the photo. Then I got a critique from one of the critique members and they slam blasted me for making such a cutesy title and told me that a photo should stand on its own merit. So you can't win.

Vote on the damn image, not the damn title!


I feel your pain but keep in mind that they MAY not have voted down even though they hated the title. i will often say something negative about a border but in almost every case i don't vote down for it.

Agree. I won't vote down for a title or a border but I will vote up for a very appropriate title. If I comment on not liking a border or a title, it's to let the submitter know that it could be a reason they aren't getting the score they think they should be.

I don't usually try and track votes, but I especially noticed the last one I got because it raised my score by 0.0001 ....

Today is better than yesterday. Still hoping to hit 6.6 at some point. Never had such an up and down voting pattern. Usually my score hits a low point early in the week then slowly climbs up towards the end of the week. This challenge has been all over the place. It's enough to make me crazy.

hahaha im glad you feel better, some people name their picture untitled ;-)

Thing is, you have to title it something here I believe. Oh well, I'm done and feel better now... ;-)
