You may, or may have not, have read in the rules that we can now see who is voting what. If you vote a cover low (i.e below 3) you MUST explain why. Failing to do this can, and will result in an official warning.

You will receive a PM regarding this first, if you do it again, your name will be placed in here for all to see.

Unlike the old gallery, we can now see who is voting what! :o

Good im glad u guys can see who is voting, i cant believe any 1 would be sooooo lame as 2 vote low as 2 make the artist feel crap or 2 make their work of the same cover for example seem better good on the admin. PS this site gets a big tick from me :0

Looks like the peeps (or should that be sods) who were voting 0 on some quality covers just out of spite/jealousy have had their day and I say a big hurrah to that. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/thumb.gif)

I think all artists should accept constructive criticism... as long as it is justified. The artists on here work long and hard at producing for the most part high quality professional covers. If I had the brains or skill... I'd be contributing myself... grin!!!

Keep up the good work all!!!

It seems now people just dole out the 3's if they don't like you. If you really want to keep people honest just makes votes visible to everybody.

You're dead right, Caveman.

I spoke today to a member who deliberately targets top-rated covers, and gives them 3's.

And he sees nothing wrong in what he's doing!

Thanks to folks like him, the vote-based ratings are a joke. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/shrug.gif)

Then I think the votes should be visible and you cant vote unless you post a reason for your vote...

If that can't be done then why have ratings at all... ??

It seems there is a similar occurance to here as there was over at r1db with the cover rating system in the end controlling the idiots was of no use so jay completely removed it and i gotta be honest it's working really well don't know if you'd wanna implement the same sort of thing here??

Just see how it goes some will do it on purpose so that get there name in the hall of shame for idiots like to rate covers you turn attention on them and they feel they've achieved something (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/yawn.gif)

back to uploading need to upload all my covers and labels here again (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif)

Could you not create the option that if you vote, when you look at the details the username is next to the vote?

This may stop stategic voting.

Although some people just vote what they actually believe, and whilst it is disappointing to receive a low score I would consider this a form of art and unfortunately art is very subjective.

I think we should abolish the voting and just use the amount of times a cover/label has been downloaded as the basis for top rated cover/label. Unless your a complete prat, or have had pc problems, it isn't often you require a cover/label more than once

All of the above suggestions are really good, but we are limited as to what we can do with Coppermine. We can remove voting. Maybe we should start a poll, and see what people want?

And for your information, the 'views' on a cover, refer to the amount of times it has been downloaded. View means viewed full size image.

Just out of curiosity did he give a reason why he does this just wondering.

Third for scrapping it seems to be more trouble than it's worth...
