Wondering about Members' Choice?

posted on 7th of march, 2012

Seeing threads and blogs asking about Members' Choice, I thought it's a good idea to collect our Admins rare replies to this frequent question - which is not found in FAQs by the way :P

They are selected randomly from the photos that received most comments.

Yes, it is based on comments a photo has. When you use a photo as the means of talking to another members, it's picked up by the system.

So there you have it!

Here's my first ever members' choice, it's when I learned about this whole thing :)

Thanks Eliane, I had guessed that's how it works, but it's nice to get it confirmed from the "horse's mouth". Lovely cat :-)

For those who asked how many comments it takes, I have this one being a current members' choice: it has 5 comments!

@Elyrae: Lol :D Well its' the concept that if a photo gets comments, it's popular. The comments should ideally be about the photo, how nice it is, etc. ==> chosen by members to be singled out :P

I LOVE the photo but still have not quite understood what the "member choice" is about LOL

Something new learned & hi to that kitten!

Thanks for those who clicked "useful", just saw the number!!
@Rcerruti: you have great new additions to your portfolio :) You're right: people may start conversations on the photo & it becomes "members' choice", not fair!
@Calyx22: No you don't get a notification message, another member told me - that's how I saw my photo there! No idea how many comments it takes my friend :)
My cat says thanks for all who found her beautiful :P

Useful information and beautiful kitten. :-)

Most beautiful shot of a beautiful cat. And useful information too, also it seems not a very pertinent way of choosing images.

beautiful shot....

Once again, something I didn't know, my friend! How many comments does it take? And do you get a message saying it's been voted a favorite?

Thanks for the information Eliane. I have no idea about that before.
Posted by Elianehaykal on March 07, 2012
Hehe I wish, my cat is not used to children. She's terrified of them!

Perhaps a child arm sticking out of the Giant cat's mouth? jokin' - could not resist. ;-)

Thanks for the info. Should increase traffic on blogs. ;) Too bad you did not have a child in this photo. You could have won the Assignment contest this month.
