Hail to the downvoter...

posted by ravennce, May 24, 2007 7:58 AM — 6 comments

For a short period of time there is someone that really seems to dislike my photos AND especially the fact that I started writing the link to my own PERSONAL photo site into the photo descriptions. This particular person is now downvoting all of my photos with 1 point....

First I was annoyed a bit, but now I'm just amused of this (let's call it) childish action. Somehow I bet this particular user doesn't even share photos through his profile on SXC. Overall I don't care too much about the ratings because I still get so much positive feedback that makes me overlook this single lost sheep. :-D

Well. I thought about contacting one of the sxc techies for asking for the name of the user that is constantly downvoting, but after having a thought about it I decided that such a person is not worth the effort.

So. Have fun downvoting. Go on, Kid.

:D :D :D :D

What a shame that people are so inconsiderate and someone has chosen you as their target. I recognize your photos and after looking through your gallery, I see good photos with ratings too low. In fact, I think I'll go through and offset some of those ratings for you with a high score.

There has been an increase in people rating basic stock photos with scores of 5 or less. They probably don't know what it takes to make good stock because they never tried it. Maybe they don't care.

Some people are just outright mean. ~Cris

@crisderaud: Thanks a lot. But on the other side downvoting is the choice of this particular guy and if he really thinks he has to downvote my photos because he dislikes them (or for other reasons) then he can do it and that's ok. As long as I receive enough nice comments and emails about my photos I don't care too much.

Nevertheless: Thanks! :)

Sorry to hear that because I really like your photos and regularly have a look at your new ones. Don't let your moral go down because of one single user. Hope you don't think about leaving sxc.hu because of that. It would be a loss for sxc.

Keep up the great work and keep up the great uploads.

Regards. Miroslav

Thanks you for your comments in my gallery. (The photo of the squirrel was one of those fortunate shots where everything fell neatly into place.)

I want you to be assured that the ratings I made on your photos was because those photos are good and not just because of that guy that is bothering you or anyone else for that matter. Good photos deserve good ratings. Comments are the precious commodity that fuels my enthusiasm on this site. I think we all wish that more people would take the time to write a note if they like one of the pics.

That's nice to know and encourages me to continue uploading on SXC. Thanks. :)
