Droplet-covered lotus flower every day

How do you feel seeing droplet-covered lotus flower filling up the top of the Leatherboard day in and day out. It seems only two guys hold the secret to this highly successful formula - Mark Anthony Bansag and Charliemagne Unggay. Doesn't admi want more variety to this category. I don't want to knock these people down, but there must a way to tweak your algorithm so that other kinds of beautiful flowers rise in the Leatherboard - there are more than lotus flowers out there.

Wilfredo, the problem is that people keep voting for them. You would think people would get sick of them, I know I have. I would have thought the togs themselves would have got sick of them. We all have things we like to photograph some people have a rather narrow range interests. They have demonstrated to themselves to be good at what they do so it wouldn't be hard to apply that to something else but unfortunately winning is what matters. I have done well photographing Frangipani but they make up less than 2% of my pics.

Many of us are extremely bored with the same old locust shots, but as Mark says, people keep voting for them....why? ...who knows.
Its not showing a lot of photographic skill to take pictures of the same things, delete them and re submit them.

yeah it gets really boring see the same thing day in and day out. There's also that guy that only ups pictures of the same girl in B/W in childrens pics that get high scores but they all pretty much look the same.

You would think they could expand there horizons and learn to photograph other stuff. I could care less how many points you have when your portfolio is the same exact picture.

Oh Well.

I am certainluy sick of them both as well as the photoshopped models.. So I either vote against them, if there is something different or Skip them..all other votes go to what i think is the best photo...but I can tell you why this happens, because people are interested in gaining credits as quickly as possible 2 or 3 secs on each duel probably.. I spent some money and bought credits..so when I vote I look at the photos and not just credit clicking.. Pixoto wont do it but the answer is giving a maximum of 50 credits per tog and anymore for the week should be fee based ...IMHO

You can't give a maximum credits because they are used to submit shots.Its been suggested many, many times that the number of shots that can be uploaded daily , weekly etc be restricted but it has not been put in place.

There should be a limit, unless they pay for uploading more.

I think the idea of restricting the # of photos submitted each day and/or week is an excellent idea!

Anything to prevent people from just clicking instead of enjoying the photos that they are supposed to vote for.

The photos are small for me to enjoy them in full. They should show them in full resolutiion in order to be fair.

so: limit the credits per day, and therefore also limit how may shots or reduels that each person is entitled to. Unless they are willing to pay for it.

Hopefully, by paying for the credits, there is less need for them to be carefree in voting.
