What should I do?

posted by Woopidoo2, Mar 24, 2007 9:33 PM — 12 comments

This account, Woopidoo2 has 71 photos online and above 8856 downloads. Rank number 706 in number of photos and number 970 in downloads.

I use a Nikon coolpix L3, its my parents' camera. With this camera, I learned the basics of photography.

In a while, I will buy my own camera, a Canon EOS 350D.

The main question:
Shall I make a new account?
(With a fresh start, starting all over again, my own camera, and without disliking the name 'Woopidoo2')

Or:
Shall I continue with this account with all its downloads and rankings, with a name I dont really like?

Please help me out here =)

-Woopidoo2, Jelle.

Who cares about the rankings and ratings...yeah its cool to have a ton of downloads, but you already know that you have them and that you have helped the community grow. Create a new account and do something for yourself...it just may help you grow and become a better photographer.

You'll never know until you do it

One bit of advice, if you put your real email address in your profile you are making it super easy for spammers to harvest your address and fill your email account with spam.

Thanks hcmlopes! =)

and dlritter, I know that. I have had no annoying emails so far, and I will delete my real email adress from my profile when people are going to spam. ;)

I lost my statistics to and i must say it hurts... but if you know you going to do better then don't mind... It just are some numbers :o)

Gewoon niet twijfelen en de knoop door hakken ;-)

(P.S.: Je kan ook een nieuwe account aanmaken en daar enkel de foto's opzetten waar je heel fier op bent ;-) en de oude gewoon houden voor foto's die je wil delen maar waar je zelf niet echt over wilt 'opscheppen' (als ik het zo mag zeggen)


Goodluck with the choice...

You can group your photos in folder's, make shure to name the new one as “new camera” and you can put new material without losing your statistics.

It is good that you marry with a camera and marks; but the photos belong to the photographer not to the camera

good post, egvdigital. good advise.

Woopidoo2, maybe you could talk with the webmasters to change your account name keeping the records.
i don't know, it's just an idea...

Great advice here,

so I should ask for a new name instead?

Go start anew, you already said that you don't like the name. Statistic is not important i can tell you. Photos are searched through keywords and not by no of downloads or ratings. And in case you were a regular on forums and blogs on SXC you should know that how rigged these are. What you see is not real and what is real you do not see.

Changes give extra energy and enthusiasm. Go ahead start afresh.

All the best

Here's what I think I would do given your situation. I would start the new account with an upbeat profile that suits your perspective. Include in your profile that you had made the change. Add to your new account those photos in your present gallery that you really want to keep. Resubmit them and tag them as the previously uploaded photos . You have many good photos that will be downloaded again. Many people visit the site so it won't be long before you are up to your present ranking. With the Canon 350D and your skills, you should have no problem climbing the ladder. Cris
