    Default Should You Rate Your Own Photos

    I've noticed in the Galleries that some photographer's star their own work. Is this the right thing to do? what do you think?

    Hi TK ........I'm not sure that rating (high or low) is worth anything anyway unless its backed up by contructive advice or the very least a reason for liking an image. As for rating ones own images I wasn't even aware it was possible........it certainly isn't something I'd consider as being useful, and in my humble opinion renders the star ratings as virtually meaningless. Something that should be addressed and well done for bringing it to the forum to raise awareness!

    Hi Alf, Glad your still around, yes if you click on the "Star Rating Downward Pointing Sign" you will see "View Other Members Ratings" click on that and it will show who has rated your shot. You have to sign in to do that.

    TK ....Many Thanks for the explanation I now see exactly what and who you are referring to. It would be good to get a view from the administrators too!

    Actually there are a few that do it, don't understand it myself. A bit vain I think.

    Don't think the ratings really do anything, so not sure it matters. They're there to help the photographer - it hardly does that if people rate their own!

    This caused a bit rammy a year or so back, A forum member Micklemass gave some low grade marks to other peoples photos and gave his own high stars, and he got flung off the site for it. I think the very fact we put our photos on a site means we think they are good anyway. I was going to give a photo 5 stars last week but the person had voted for himself so I didn't bother

    I just noticed you have 205 posts to your credit, and you are still classed as a beginner?

    Can't this be put forward to your January meeting, the site surely could be altered so you could not vote for your own photos. As I said before the site needs updating, I don't mean that in a bad way, however, maintenance and updating seem very rare.
