Pixoto: The Game Changed

Just wanted to let you all at Pixoto know that your site has had such a positive impact on me. The idea of weekly contests combined with daily/constant feedback through scoring, has shed a whole lot of light on what is seen by others as quality in photography, and not just personal bias. It's easy to be complacent and look at your work and say, "I think that's good", but it's far more helpful to have others in such a large community, anonymously show their collective critiques.

I truly hope your site continues to grow. At this point, I'd be really bummed if this ever went away.

Thanks for all your efforts,

-Nathan

I agree with Nathan :) Also, he mentioned critiques, which I'd really like to see take off here. I want to know what I'm doing wrong (or right) on my images, and so far I haven't gotten many comments from people I don't know from other photography communities. I suggested it last week, but last I checked the post had gone unnoticed.

Thanks Kara!

Your idea hasn't gone unnoticed. We saw it and have been talking about it internally! We've also had an incredibly busy week. Sorry for the delay in response to yours and other ideas that have come through in the last several days. We will get caught up soon!

No apology needed Justin :) I love this place, and don't have any intentions of leaving anytime soon.

I left another site because some were always giving harsh comments....I like this site because there is no place on it for that and I would really like that to stay like that.

Terry - while we do plan to implement Critiques/Peer Reviews... it will be up to the Player who owns the image to request a review from the community. Meaning, you don't have to participate if you don't want to. Those what want that sort of feedback can get it while others don't have to.

Thanks, I don't mind genuine critiques but it got to commenting unfavourably on the name of my shot I felt it was just commenting for the sake of it.....the actual shot won an award....
