The selection process is random, but last week an Administrator added a few Christmas themed images


Damn it, and there was me thinking mine was included on merit. Now I realise that even though it was shot on a cold, blustery Fistral beach in November and Christmas was the last thing on my or the model's minds, the fact she was wearing a red, hooded coat obviously made it Christmasy enough for inclusion.

Sorry to disappoint you Paul, but Home Page Gallery images are not picked on merit.
They are merely a selection of randomly selected recent 'Safe For Work' images
uploaded by Premium (i.e. Upgraded) members to their Purestorm portfolio.
Matt (our webmaster) wrote the programme which makes the Gallery work.
He also gave Moderators the ability to delete any inappropriate image from the pool.

(A few images displaying over the Christmas period were also added by Admin to give a seasonal feel)

If any member believes other member's images do not merit being displayed
on that member's Purestorm profile, and thereby possibly on the Home Page',
may I respectfully suggest that they start a forum thread in General Chat asking
the membership 1] what quality criteria should be set for images on profiles
and 2] which, if any, images on their own portfolio are of insufficient 'merit'.

 
Season's Greetings to all - irrespective of the perceived merit, or otherwise, of their work.   FM      .

It's ok, FM, I was only being light hearted, not serious.

IMHO , images on the header should be a selling point for the site so it should be showing quality images to at least try and attract new members and get some of the leavers to return .
The home page is your shop window and at times it can look on here a little like a closing down sale !

It would appear that the random selection of header images has made a slight improvement :-)

Such a good job there is some moderation on images, otherwise we'd have had some of those artistic ones uploaded on sunday floating across the front page.

Classy!

Classy indeed

I'd like to propose that the front page image header is permanently linked to a selection of random images from Silky's portfolio. That ought to please everybody I reckon.

I wasn't logged in. All I could see were Jess' uploads which are proper classy. Imagine my joy when I logged in and could appreciate the full splendour.

Am I right in thinking that the header board is still open to paid members only? In the interests of rotating the "shopfront" pictures a bit more frequently, and regardless of the rights and wrongs, it may be worth relaxing this rule at least temporarily and having the decision fully moderated rather than random. What do you think, Mods?

It's not just paying members, by only the premium members who contribute. What better indicator of talent?

Well, a photographer is only as good as the camera he can afford
