Default Option to view member photos in the order of points

Hi there,
I am writing to see what you think of a suggestion.
I often visit new member galleries and in the majority of cases I gather the few photos I comment on from several pages. I think the option to see photos in the order of points would save us all time and would dig out the most beautiful photos on the site. NB: I'm not saying we should give up on the current option of seeing photos in the order of their posting.
What do you think?
Thanks,
Raluca

Hi Raluca, as I make my own decision and do not take those with higher points as the ones to be critiqued no interest from me. I take the newest or another one which touches me personal. Ulf

hi raluca,
i don't know if i am getting this right (or my brain is simply on a weekend break :))) ... but i don't think the number of TE points (be it high or low) can show us the 'beauty' of a pic - aethetics is quite often not (or not only) a definitory factor while 'scoring high' on TE - and then again ... beauty is in the eye of the beholder - or certain styles can be favoured while others are simply looked over.

also, any member can activate the 'featured photos' option in the profile page, for any visitor to see his/hers most highly rated photos

not an answer actually - just my 2c

take care,
dora

Hi Dora,
I just read the FAQ and I guess we can always look at photos in the Favorite pages.
I agree with you, some photos get lots of points for reasons other than aesthetics. On the other hand, (the vast majority of) the ones that make it into Favorites seem to be outstanding. So I guess I'll go with Favorites. But my post was actually about seeing the best photos of a specific member. I guess if I'm looking for high scoring photos in this case those 3 featured in the intro will have to suffice.
Thanks!
Raluca

yep, i guess going with the Favorites would be the best (available) choice - you're right
stay well,

I don't think this would be a good idea, only because there are a lot of photos which even don't deserve the points. By seeing the photos the way it is now, photos of everybody can be seen... and judged...

Default Option of viewing without names and points

Raluca,
I don't think it would help the "democratic feeling" TE has.

Personaly, I don't understand why you need more than half a dozen of critiques on a photo, unless you are here for the "fun", in witch case you could critique any photo.
But this is not you question, I know :)

But your question made me think of another posibility I would like;
I would very much like the possibility to turn of the name and points, so I could look at the gallery and pick a photo because I have something to look at or to say about.

The option to "turn off" the names and points on the thumbnails is already available in each member's profile.

It's explained in point 19 of the FAQ.
