Photo Gallery Rating System

Unread post by ~Z~ »

I have decided to turn off the photo gallery rating system. During the past couple of weeks, a few different people have been going around rating a lot of photos as zeros, and nothing with any stars at all. I went around and reset these votes... Got me thinking that this rating system would turn into the crappy one from rrforums, so i ended it. You can still comment, because comments are far better to tell submitters what you like about the photo, or dislike, or improvements. Any suggestions? I can turn on rating for members only and still keep guests locked out. Looking for you guy's input.

Thank you Zack, I think the coment idea is far better than the rating system. At least if you have to take enough time to type out a coment i know you mean it.

I'm OK with that. I kinda figured it was a somebody that had nothing better to do with his/her time.

Personally speaking, comments are welcome - good or bad - from members. When you open the door to the Anon's you have no control over anything.

You get 2cents change with that.

Anon's is this a virus? Another member had someone named anon add coments to thier pics and Zack had to remove them. I think we (Zack and i) need to look into this seemingly problem.

really..... hum... Guests shouldn't be able to add coments to members pics without registering first. I do believe changes are in order.

I think it should be members ONLY, like I said before, if someone is to lazy to register they shouldn’t be able to vote or post comments on photos. :D
