That's not the point Brian and Austen. I started the whole thread to actually question whether we need a "pat on the back" for postings/comments/etc each and every day among ourselves or maybe add more "value" to the karma by giving it more "carefully".
(and don't take the words "value" and "carefully" to serious please).

But as it has been said - the perception and of the karma "value" is different so it is probably not that important at all and really more of a fun thing.

Suggestion:

Sometimes I would like to get/give more of a in-depth image analysis in order to improve so maybe an introduction of some picture rating system would be nice? Maybe with a list of multiple choice (ranging from exposure to composition) as well as free comment boxes. And limit each person to enter only one image per month or so?

Second the motion, in another forum so that to post there means you'll accept any and all critique.

We've had this conversation before.

Any photo posted is up for critique. Period. Don't like it? Don't post.

I accept any and all critique for all my images posted as Brian says. But an option to get a more in-depth critique would be nice. So you really have to answer some questions (like composition, lighting, etc) rather than getting comments like "nice image.

Exactly, that "Nice shot!" and "wow!" commenting is so irrelevant if it does not have any explanation with it to go.

A star system on the picture basis should not be that hard to implement (and don't tell me the camel gallery has allready got one, I know, but who has time to wade through the gallery).

1-5 stars under the picture, how hard is that? And it would be anonymous so you would not have to be worried about losing you camel inner circle buddies (or feel obligated to give five stars to your friends even if you hated the picture).

How about it?

And brian, I remember you wanting more comments in the glamour section a year ago, so why are you opposing this? (I know, just for kicks, 'cause you like to be in the opposition).

If you like it, have fun with it. If you don't, ignore it. It's not going to hurt if you don't play.

No, I'm just usually right when most others are wrong. People are getting used to it, though.

I never said anything against more advanced critique. It's part of the reason I don't post many images anymore. No critiques unless I complained about it. It wasn't worth the effort any longer.

What I AM against is a devoted forum specificially FOR critiques. That's the subject that's been discussed a number of times. Yet another place to lose a thread or crosspost. The organization works well enough as it is.

Johnny - go to the top of this page and click where it says "Rate Thread". You will have the option there to choose how many stars you want to give this thread. You could use this same function on threads that have images.

Like Athena said twice in here, use the Thread Rating system that ALREADY exists.

It is a drop-down at the top of EVERY thread. I have advocated numerous times to have the words changed for each of the stars, but it falls on some deaf ears....probably because it is used 1% of the time. If you all use it, we will change it to make it better.
