#5 You and people like you are the reason I've pulled any remaining pics of mine from the queue whether they be 'emo' as your term them, action, scenic or whatever. I might have hoped things would have improved but unfortunatley this site remains the greatest concentration of idiots and halfwits in the Elder Scrolls universe.
You sir are quite simply put a disgrace. 2/10? What color is the sky in your world?

10/10 Rogue Sun, brilliant as always.

"Emo"? As in, expressing emotion? As in, what is generally considered one of the main purposes of art?

So, no screenshots that express emotion. No "girl power" screenshots (yes, women kicking butt & being strong is bad *eyeroll*). No scenery. If it's not funny, it gets a low score? Regardless of the quality of the shot & the effort that went into it? Why not just pass over it & not vote at all if it's not your thing? I don't go for realism in my game, but that doesn't mean I go around to realism mods & rate 'em all 0. I can recognize the worth of something even if it isn't my style.

This shot, however, I think is beautiful no matter one's style. 10/10.

Is that a coherent language? Perhaps your parents should keep tighter control of their computer in future.

floydian, get over yourself! You post screenshots of a videogame. You do not post photographs of the real world or anything. Learn to accept criticism.

For god's sake, you act like a photographer who's life's work has just been rejected by a publishing company or something. Instead, you are someone who posts screenshots of oblivion. Most of your pictures are fine! Sure, some aren't to everyone's taste, and they say so. Either accept what people say or ignore. Its your choice. Don't go around posting abusive comments to people because what they say contradicts your beliefs or opinions. Because thats just sad.
If you post pictures on here, you run the gauntlet of criticism. You need to learn to accept what's said, and not sulk.
"I've pulled any remaining pics of mine from the queue" are your exact words. Why? Cos your pics weren't to everyone's taste, and some people said so? You're collectively punishing everyone for that!? Ha! How arrogant is that?

'abusive comments' that's rich! How can you tell the difference? Seems to me they're just in line with the general style of postings here.

First off, this isn't Floydian's picture. If he's decided that the general tone of this board isn't something he wants to subject himself to, I don't call that arrogance at all. If he also decides that he's still going to defend those he respects who do still post here, I don't see that as arrogance either.

Saying someone who can't even put in the effort to use semi-proper grammar/english (and please don't claim that "bout randon peeps nd scenery nd stuff r soooooooo" is because that person is from a non-english-speaking country) isn't speaking in a coherent language is not abusive. Inferring from that language that said person is not of a mature age is simple logic.

There is a big difference between saying something is not to one's taste & *rating* something as nearly worthless because it isn't funny/has a girl in it/has only scenery/doesn't have enough scenery/etc. Also a huge difference between saying something is not to one's taste & saying "the end result is crap".

Just because something can be accepted doesn't mean it shouldn't be challenged. Just because Floydian1 could perhaps grow thicker skin doesn't mean people should still be allowed to be rude without being called on it. I can sit back & do nothing & say "ah well, that's the internet", or I can at least put some effort into saying that behaviour is distasteful.

And for you to denigrate the creative efforts of anyone, no matter the medium used for expression, I feels falls under that "distasteful" category. You perhaps had a point or two you could have reasonably expressed about your opinion of the tone of Floydian1's posts; you lost any credibility when you basically sunk to the level at which you were accusing him of being.

Yeah. I just started uploading pictures here, but I think I'm probably done. There are more dumb people here than there are at Nexus! At least there ratings like:

"2/10
sorry, nice graphics and all but stop with these emo pics!"

get moderated.

I agree with kalia and floydian1.
And with the sort of game it is, its a crime to not post any scenery pics...i mean look at it...its a game...and look at how good it looks! How can you call that crap?!

Very nice pic (and just because its a scenery pic doesn't mean its getting old...)

herosinger, we believe here that everyone is entitled to an opinion, not just positive ones. We moderate comments meant to be offensive or inflammatory. We don't censor people just because they don't like something, however. I'm surprised you think we should.

If the rating was justified, I wouldn't have a problem with it. I tend to believe that pictures - like mods - should be rated on the extent in which they do what they set out to do, not on the rater's whim. Just as a mod that adds poses to the game shouldn't get rated extremely low because the mod doesn't add a sword, a picture that shows a character in a contemplative position shouldn't get a bad rating because it isn't funny.

I don't mean to insult the moderating staff here; I'm simply pointing out a difference in moderating policies.

Great shot as always, RogueSun. 10/10

The rating system should just automatically eliminate the lowest 5 votes or so - since it seems the really low votes are done out of spite. This would undermine the malicious voting some people seem to get off doing.

Sorry to hear you are leaving here, Floydian1, though I understand your reasons. See you around.

While I agree with you herosinger, we extend users a certain amount of freedom. If they rate a PotD a 2/10 for instance because they would rather see a funny PotD, that is their prerogative.

Honestly certain users here are far too caught up with ratings and how other users perceive them. Certainly it's nice to be liked, but throwing a fit over a 2/10 rating is kind of a waste of time (not to mention complaining about someone's vote only maintains a status quo of negativity). You can't please everyone, after all; if that's what people want they should share their work only with their friends.

You are, of course, correct, Inyri. Thanks for taking the time to respond.

Sorry for cluttering up your page, Rogue. As always, I look forward to seeing more from you.

I think this is getting a bit ridiculous; the quality of the PotD comments have been on a steady decline for many sites on the network for quite some time now... it disappoints me that several of my compatriots are unable to act reasonably about such a simple thing as a Picture.

I suggest you people play nice... We haven't hesitated to remove comments in turbulent times, and I believe you all were warned that the consequences would be more serious next time.

I agree with you #19, but im still stuggeling to understand Floydians concept of 'what is abuse". #5 did not direct any personal abuse at Floydian, or anyone else. All he did was display dislike for this current POTD, which in all fairness, he has a right to do so. I do think #15 has a point as well, about accepting criticism, although that dosnt really matter, because everyone will just slag it off as personal abuse towards someone.

I am not voting on this POTD. by the way.

Wow, I've missed a lot. First off I would like to say, as no one has, to all of you who want to see "better" (read: not mine or Floydian's) pictures, either put up or shut up. No one likes hypocrites and if your pics are not getting chosen then I'm sure the moderators have a good reason for doing so (like the graphics are horrible or they're simply not funny).

Secondly, regarding funny pictures: Oblivion is NOT a funny game. Period. It's about trying to save the world from an invasion of demonesque monsters. That is not funny. Any funny jokes from this game have not only been done, but they have been beaten to death time and time again.

Thirdly, yes we are subject to criticism, however, in a community such as this (however chaotic and barbaric it may be) people like to recieve CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. Saying things like "stop w/ teh emo shots!!!1!!1one" really isn't that constructive. Something more along the lines of, this shot could have been improved by better lighting the character's face" is constructive and offers a better reason for rating a picture.

Fourthly, not everyone knows what everyone else is submitting to this site, so the fact that Floydian and I both posted "Emo" shots is purely conincidental. Additionally, we have no control over which shots get shown, as that is the job of the moderators. This particular shot was posted quite a few months ago, and was one of my earliest shots.

Alright, RogueSun. I have given this picture a 7/10. The mood of the pic is great, and the sky is absolutely perfect - what mod is that? The only reason I lowered my rating is because I think the waterfall is too indistinct, and I don't think the glint of light off the woman's sword really fits in a picture like this.
Oh, and Oblivion can *sometimes* be a funny game. Adoring Fan, Sheogorath, etc. It just *usually* isn't.

Let me remind everyone that trolling and flaming will not be tolerated, regardless of who's doing it (or who's done it first). Being 'criticized' does not give you a right to start throwing insults. Being criticized is also not against our rules, so learn to buck up and take it or find a new community.

I hate to be harsh, but this is ridiculous. Honestly, can't anyone take a comment now without tantrums? There will always be people that simply don't know how to be constructive. The sooner we all come to terms with that the sooner we can all move on with our lives.

glasseye141 well I'm from England and if I'm going to criticize/abuse someone's work then I'd least make the effort to write in a legible language, oh I don't know English perhaps?

"2 rite lik dis 2 save me time nd because i prefer 2"

I'll refrain from telling you the impression that gives people out of politeness.
