C'mon people, lets see variety! Stuff like floydians is good, but if all we saw was that (as, indeed, we did) it gets tedious and rather boring. Now we've gone the otherway. Lets see a bit of everything: epic stuff, landscapes, humour, artwork, battles, all good shots.

I did all of that on different sites here on filefront, and it was always good.
But honestly, this is crap.

#4 Let's be honest there's no reason to make an effort to post here, you only get abused, trolled (even hounded by religious zealots in my case) and generally shot down in flames. Now with basically zero moderation (not that there was much before) what chance does anyone have? If you peek over at the Nexus image forum you find the mods there stamp on you hard if you get out of line and actually take notice when people report stuff, and over at PES to. Also if Ronnie is validating by date submitted and there are nearly 400 submissions in the queue then uploading a screen that won't be displayed for over a year is a waste of time.

"Let's be honest there's no reason to make an effort to post here, you only get abused, trolled (even hounded by religious zealots in my case) and generally shot down in flames."

If, by "religious zealots" you are referring to Super_Llama, this is almost hysterically ridiculous. All he did was give a couple of your pictures low ratings (for religious reasons, according to you), and you pitched a fit. I stress that, according to the rules of this site, users can give pictures any rating they want for whatever reason they want - they can rate a picture high because they think Buddha likes it, or low because they think Xenu does. There is no rule against religiously-based rating, and until there is one, you are the troll and abuser here.

Well I actually know from a former mod religion was the reason but still my general point stands, post an epic/photoshoped/not humorous screenshot and it's open season. An come surely I can't be the only one who put some effort into their screens? Where's everyone else? Tollf? Rogue Sun? Look at all the quality stuff being posted to Nexus, why doesn't it get put on here?

Well, you have a point there, but keep in mind that we really won't know what epic/photoshopped/non-humorous pics have been submitted to the queue until we get some actual moderators here (I'm glad we have Ronnie, though, to at least change the pics at all). I submitted a scenery screenshot a few weeks ago that I kinda liked. We'll see what happens. smile
And besides, there's bound to be more dislike towards "epic" screenshots from certain people. With a humorous pic, it can only be viewed as "funny" or "not funny", generally speaking. Non-humorous pics can be looked at from a standpoint of style, artistry, background, etc. There are more ways to like them, but also more ways to dislike them.

How could you call Floydian the troll and abuser here??? Never has he bashed a picture because of some religious belief or anything like that... What the hell??

Just to clarify the incident with Super_Llama occured when he rated a picture 1 out of hand with a smarmy comment so naturally when his potd came up I returned the favor simply quoting the comment he made back at him and I actually got banned lol, turns out he was great pals with the mod in question and basically had license to do what he felt like on the site and anyone who dared defend themselves got the wrath of his protector. It was later agreed talking to a higher admin that the mod in question had overstepped the mark.

Oddly enough the pic of his I rated was barely worth the 1 rating I gave it anyway wink

I referred to Floydian as a troll and abuser simply because he continues to call Super_Llama a "religious zealot" despite the fact that S_L himself never even expressed religious beliefs on this website - that knowledge comes from a mod, according to Floydian.
And giving a picture a low rating (and I stress that Super_Llama did not "bash" the pictures in question - he simply gave them low ratings, which it was entirely within his rights to do) for religious reasons is not against the rules of this site and does not quality as abuse or trolling.
But whatever - I wasn't trying to start a war with my post. I was just sticking up for Super_Llama.

I LOLed at every one!!!

The people that give bad scores (not naming anyone for the best) lol you realy need to chill and come off the computer for a bit.

Come on its a picture, there's no need to start WW III over it. Simply say "i dont like this picture, it does not favor me i rate it 1/10" or what ever.

And for every one else your all like a group of school girls (if you aint girls) have a fit over someone that said something a long time.


lol like any one listerns here any way

'Whatever' to the next person that comments to me.

"over at the Nexus image forum you find the mods there stamp on you hard if you get out of line."

By "out of line" I think he means "have a negative opinion or comment nagatively". In other words you are not allowed an opinion. I've seen a 3 members there banned simply because they had an opinion which went against the grain as it were. Not flaming or sarcastic, simply an opinion which was subsequently deleted. When that member questioned the deletion/s, they were banned. So here on Filefront you may get "good" pics or you may get "bad" ones but at least you can have an opinion and not be held to ransom by some trumped up Nazi-like regime which will "stamp on you hard" for having a voice.

btw humourous pic hehe 7/10

Floyd, i regularly look at the Nexus gallery. it seems to me people either say nice stuff, or nothing at all. Sorry floyd, but by out of line you mean express an oppinion that's negative. Saying we were bored of your pictures because they were the same style and theme posted one after another is not abusive. They got repetative. Its not "shooting down in flames" to say we'd like to see variety. Does asking for variety count as abuse?
Maybe you found it soul destroying to have your PotDs get low scores because we found them repetitive you've proved on nexus that you can produce many different kinds of good shots. all we saw on here was the same kind over and over again and we said we found them repetative. I appologise. But, then you stormed off, called us idiots, vowed never to come to this site again, but never considered listening to what we said. I notice you post comments on nearly every PotD, with smary holier than thou comments asking in effect "don't you wish you still had me?"

Well, with an attitude like that is it any wonder that people are rather hostile on this site?

Incidently, nexus is a good site for pics, but they don't seem to like oppinion. I gave one a 9 and simply said it was brilliantly done, and i notice the comment got deleted... What chance do you have, therefore, of posting a critical comment?

I can't speak to your specific experience, chug muffin, but I will say that, for the most part, the Nexus moderators are very fair in their judgments. As I've said here before, pictures, like mods, should be evaluated on their individual merits (religion, for example, should have no say in your rating unless the picture deals with religion). Irrelevant ratings are often deleted. The last few days have been especially harsh due to the insult of Slof that ultimately led to her pulling all her mods from Nexus and PES.

Oh believe me it wasn't bad ratings I've had plenty of low ratings on nexus/pes, there were comments on here that had nothing to do with the screenshots more like simple abuse, and not only to me. I remember seeing a fair few personal comments made against Rogue Sun for his pictures. And yes my info regarding the other incident comes directly from the mod in question, incidentally once I found that fact out well him singling me out on religious grounds is like a red rag to a bull to me (I personally detest organized religion and people who try and push it on me).

Chug_muffin I saw your nice post at Nexus and answered. As you see I produce various kind of shots (yes even funny ones) they would all be submitted here (and were) but the problem here is the submissions are delt with by the moderators, so if one is singling out certain kind of shots to display then there's not a lot you can do. I seem to recall a long run of sunset pictures, now these were spaced out evenly enough in the queue I'd bet. All down to the moderators personal preference.

It's funny how easily a small comment snowballed into this argument.
Normally, like in most other forums, I'd have something to say about all of this.
But because I don't visit Nexus too often, I'm not following what people are doing there.
As far as I am concerned, I see no abuse in this argument at all, and I think it's rather silly that you're even arguing in the first place. It's not like somebody just shouted out a racial slur at somebody, but it was just merely somebody giving a bad rating, gave their reason, and just like that, it snowballed into what's going on now.
Really, there is nobody benefiting from this, is there? If somebody wins, what is it going to change? People will vent, and comment on other POTD's, and live on.
However, I see no reason to bring Religion into this argument, and it's a shame that it's thrown around like a football at Nexus, or that's what it sounds like from what I've read here, which makes me feel that Nexus is arrogant enough to think it's okay to through things like that around. As HeroSinger suggested, it really seems like a personal thing unless the picture screams "Religious Debate!"

I only just saw the reply, every day it must get shunted several pages back, it took me ages to find. I assumed they uploaded stuff by date at filefront. It seemed fair although the junk would get shown along with the good stuff, but its fair on everyone, not just the artistic ones. I submit stuff on the CoH filefront, it'll be ages before they show mine, but still...

Y'see, i assumed that you uploaded all those pics that i found repetative one after the other, in which case some variation would have been nice. if they were selected by a mod, who kept choosing the same kind of pic, then its not your fault, its the system kinda failing.

Incidentally, i liked the landscape ones, i defended the landscape pictures when they came up. But true, i got fed up of the skimpy elf shots (they seemed to crop up 8 PotD's out of 10...) [incidentally this is sort of in reply to your comment to me on a nexus pic] Also, i don't like the jokes that much. I mean, i've nothing against them if they're funny, then i'd like them. But a lot of them are poor. Its nice to see a bit of everything,not just the same stuff. That means landscapes, epic ones, gothic style ones, atmospheric ones, artistic ones, yes elf ones , and jokes, but we shouldn't get all of the same kind, a nice mix would be good.

The religion thing happened here, not at Nexus, Fenskez0r (though there was a mod-related fuss concerning religion a while back that was properly moderated).
