Default Not interested ? Do not care ? Indifference ?

Going through photos that are published on this website noticed one thing - so many views of the photos (80,100,200,300 visitors...) and not a single comment,even negative.
What is this - people are not interested in what they looking at,do not know what to write,do not care,do not have an opinion about the photo,apathy ?

Hi Mike
There are two ways of getting smiley faces. First one would be to take good photos (and I mean really good photos not just good snapshots). Second one to join the “smiley faces club”. There are many different ones on this site (it is not official club, I just come up with that name by myself). The purpose of the club is to share smiley faces and good critique between each other, no matter how bad or how very bad the photos are (I have seen some amazing comments attached to some really bad photos, it makes you think, are they all that sarcastic or is it, the blind leading the blind or maybe bit of both).
I myself just withdrew all my photos from here, after sending only two weeks on TE. They weren't good enough to get noticed and I did not want to join the club. But I must say I have enjoyed the 14 days of going through 10000000000 of photos, and I think the majority of TE subscribers are happy here. Good luck.
Marc

Sorry, I have to disagree with posting REALLY GOOD photos. I know MANY good photographers (not referring to myself) who post excellent shots and get NO points.

Being active is the main thing- VERY active. We can then take it to the extreme...

- Only say REALLY nice things, never anything critical
- Never comment, people only care about smilies/ points- you won't make friends by commenting.
- Critique as MANY people as possible everyday.
- Critique people in your 'click' of friends everyday to stay in their good books (not more then 1 critique a day to them as you don't want to waste critiques
- Try and critique newcomers as they're looking for acceptance into a new community and may just critique your whole gallery! (fingers crossed)
- Ensure you reply with 'Thank You' to each and every person who comments or critiques your photos to urge them to come back and give you more points.
- Be sure to mark every crtique as useful- even if they only said 'I've been to that town'.
- Mark every workshop as useful, even if all they did was make it look worse.
- Advertise every new photo you post in the forums to atract as much attention as possible.

All the best!
- Dan

Hi Lili;

I was only joking/ being sarcastic- I was not serious. I know that too many Thank You's will result in the image being removed ;-)

Have a nice day!
- Dan

Hi Daniel,

Sorry, but in the link their send me I didin't find nothing about "Don't reply with THANK YOU". Where I can read this?
I reply, but tos never ansew to me.

The reason is: Excessive "thank you" replies

If the reason stated above is incorrect, please reply to this email with an explanation and
it will be researched further and possibly restored. Otherwise the photo will be removed after 1 week.

Please see http://www.trekearth.com/terms.php for the TrekEarth terms of service.

Nice day, too!
Lili

Marc,

one of the major issue of the web is that lot of people think that all is possible and that you can become famous or rich or whatever by only clicking a buton. You don't have to just upload one or two amazing pict of yours to get feedback from other member, you have to give, first. How can you expect you photos to be seen in the middle of all those uploaded daily in writing only 6 critiques?? Come on...

Hi Loξc


I am sorry, I think you misunderstood my previous post, it wasn’t a complaint.
I was just trying to share with Mike my view on how this site operates. In my opinion I think it is bit funny to have system of “ if you don't look at my photos I’m not going to look at yours”. But like I said before all this comes from a person who has been here only for two weeks, I could have got the wrong first impressions. But on the other hand, a couple posts above from a person who has been here for many years (davids), you hear that this site is not really about learning how to take perfect photo, but more of a place to make new friends. I understand and respect that.

Marc
