It's about a lot of things.

Some people are interested in collecting points, some people aren't.

Some people are interested in critical feedback, some people aren't.

What TE isn't about is having to look at pictures from someone's drunken night out in the clubs. ;o)

No.

You're the living proof of it. You don't have many points and you're definitely no star. And yet you're given the right to express your opinion in the forums.

I always thought democracy wasn't a solution in itself.

On another site of which I'm a member, I am able to remove the right to give or receive a star rating and this I do. I think a points or star system is counter productive but if one is to be used then there needs to be at least 10 awardable points by which to gauge the merits of an image. Surely a critique is enough to know if the image is liked or not and more importantly, to say why.

You can do the same here. Within the user profile you will find this option :- Default Point System Behavior: Display Points / Do Not Display Points. Select 'Do not display' and save yourself the anguish of worrying about the small minority who would give maximim points and a glowing critique to a black cat in a coal cellar with the lights off :-)

I wish i could sit here & say without a doubt that points don't matter...but for beginners in this area of photography (such as me) i have found the points system a
great motivater.
I do however think a greater range of marking would be more helpful-rather than a straight/small smile/ big smile-would give more scope for feelings about a photograph.
People like to feel they are making good & worthwhile photographs & the good people here on TrekEarth will let you know either way i believe.
Good subject though Jaan & would like to hear more opinions.
DAVID CORTEZ.
