Wow, I saw today that one of my images has been labelled with a "top pick" badge.  I wasn't even aware that it had been chosen.  Few of us will ever be able to have an IOTD, so it is very nice to have a system which recognizes the images chosen as top picks.

Thanks, Salvatore & Carole, for making the Top Pick badge system happen.

Same thing happened to me.  smile Really cool! Thanks Carole for suggesting this and Salvatore for implementing it!

Hi,

I also like the idea that "top picks" are labeled now.

May I hijack this thread to start a discussion about another matter? In the review queue every submitted picture shows a blue number on the top left. This is the number of submitters which chose this single picture to submit to the queue. Is it not possible that a number like this might influence the reviewer (at least subconsciously)?

What do you think?

Best from Lausanne,

Hi Jan,

I noticed for myself that the number of submitters is influencing me.  smile
I would suggest not to display the numbers, but keep the link with a different icon, if a judge is interested in that information.

We seem to have gone off on a tangent on the last bit of this thread, but since we are in possible "image picking influence mode" I was wondering whether it is possible to view images without knowing who submitted them - would knowledge that a certain image was done by a well respected imager have an influence perhaps?  I hope not, but I can't help wondering if it would subconsciously like the number of ticks scenario.

Of course that might not be possible for Salvatore to implement in any case.

Just refrain from clicking on the "link" button and limit yourself to viewing the image in normal resolution or higher resolution using the magnifying glass button. What you ask is the default, unless I misread your question?

Sounds good, I'll do it.

This idea leads to a more objective selection. I highly appreciate the way you are thinking. Thumbs up for You all!

The trouble is I like to look at images in high resolution, and I don't think the magnifying glass brings it up big enough.   Also would all the submitters/Reviewers/Judges do the same?

The thing is, sometimes context is needed and relevant. IOTD does not necessarily mean the most pixel-perfect image.

True.  I do look at the text as well.  Anyway, just a thought.

For me it is also important to see the discription and technical cart of the images to make good selections.

Hi,

I would like to ask one question: is the "Top Pick" distinction just for new images or can it be attributed to a revised image?

Thanks,

Good question Ruben. I hope it could be extended to revisions. But I think it is not the case.

I guess you could submit the image as a new image if you want it to be re-considered.

Yeah, at the moment when you post a new revision,  your image does not enter the IOTD queue again, so it’s not considered anymore.
