What should I know about photo voting?
Many people have fun taking part in voting campaigns of all kinds.
With the photo voting, we would like to make this a permanent feature in the Community in a fun way. Unlike the characteristics of other voting campaigns, there is no time limit to our photo voting, i.e. our photo voting takes place always. There is no deadline by which you can collect voting points and by the end of which you may win. Winning is not important here; what counts is the fun you have. You should not take the whole thing too seriously, but with a pinch of salt. In addition, the photo voting may also be a further alternative chance to "discover" another chatter and to maybe get to know him.
In our photo voting, the most attractive and likeable person in the Community is voted for.
You can view the current "Top 4" photos in the various voting categories under "People" -> "Photo voting".
You may take part in the photo voting starting from "16 years" of age and participation is, of course, voluntary; and even if you do not take part, you may vote for other people.
In order to take part yourself, you have two possibilities:
- Go to the homepage "-> Upload photo" and then click on "Take part in photo voting with this photo".
- Go to "Photo voting" via "People", and then click on the info-box on the left on "here".
By the way: As long as you take part in the photo voting, you may not change the setting for your gender in the profile.
Your photo will appear in the ranking only after it has been voted for at 30 times.
You can see your current voting results under the main page -> "-> Upload photo", via your profile and in the info-box of "People" -> "Photo voting".
Breakdown of the results: "Attractive" (10): 8.00" means that in the "Attractiveness" voting category, a total of 10 votes have been entered thus far and that you have received an average of 8 points.
Attention: If you take part in the photo voting, all the points you have collected will be lost if you upload a new photo!
So think twice as to whether you really want to upload a new picture. To complain afterwards would really make no sense as the points cannot be recovered. In this case, uploading the old photo again will not help either, as the system will not recognize the old photo as such, and will treat it as a new one.
The voting takes place as follows:
Click on the page under "People" -> "Photo voting" -> "The latest photo-voting participants" on the corresponding links "To vote for..." You can then vote for the pictures which will be shown one after another. In order to vote, click on the pertinent values and finally on the "Vote" button. As soon as you have voted for all the participants who are currently available for voting, a corresponding message will appear, the link to vote under "The latest photo-voting participants" will disappear temporarily. As soon as a new picture is available for voting, the link will re-appear and you can vote again. Simply visit "Photo voting" more often.
