What if my top 3 is not really my top 3?

Out of my top images are a bunch of cover versions of things, collaborative builds and, a certain fad guideline. I've taken my top 3 images that are faved because of my model but possibly should put ED-209 in here.

Good question, fad MOCs are certainly permissable, but I am hesitant to include group builds & covers. However this group is supposed to represent the preferences of the community (through the favourite rule), so I guess those images qualify. I think if you can make sense of this paragraph you are more than qualified to decide for yourself =D

My most faved creations are photographs rather than an actual model build, should those be included, or just straight up MOC's?

Only creations that you have built & photographed yourself should be added to the group

Whadda you mean by top three?

Flickr users often press the "add to favs" button, displayed on the left directly above the image to indicate that they like the image. This is a good measure of how good a photo is, or within the LEGO community, how successful the build is in the eyes of your peers. You can check a photos stats by checking the "Addition Information" panel on the bottom right of the Image page. "Top 3" are the 3 images in your photostream with the most favourites. Hope that helps

I guess I should rephrase my question, here's are my top three faved items.
M247 "Mongoose"
Scorched Sactuary
Tied for 3rd
Rat's Nest1
Long Ride Home

Two of those 4 shots are artistic-type photo's rather than a MOC. Are those to be included?

Oh I see, I will leave that to your own discretion, choose the images that best represent your skill & what you want to convey to your "audience." Personally I'd go the straight up MOCs.

lol. I thought maybe you meant a person's three favorite MOCs that they themselves favorited. Clearly this was a case where I should've gone with my initial understanding. :P

Q: Is there a minimum number of faves that a photo should have before being added to the pool?
vìnn 13 years ago
And if you were invited, you are allowed to post, regardless of how many favorites you received? My top 1 is only favorited eight times, I think.
admin
Dunechaser 13 years ago
^ Eight times is actually a lot, comparatively speaking. I was thinking more along the lines of a minimum of five, to winnow out the two-fave photos we all have. :-)

DARKspawn Posted 13 years ago. Edited by DARKspawn (admin) 13 years ago
@ Dunechaser - This was actually my original idea and certainly deserves discussion. A cap of 25 favs or something would ensure we only get the best images. But there are many talented builders who don't have a lot of contacts (& therefore favs) that deserve to be in the pool too. Maybe 25 even is way too high

@ Vanugget - yes you are more than welcome

What if we have no pictures that are faved yet? Shall I post all my pictures? Just kidding, but if anyone wouldn't mind to take a look at my pics and fav a couple that'd be appreciated.

The highest number of favs I have is 5.

I checked my photos and made sure they weren't in to many groups, but I can't add one of them. Any help?
admin
DARKspawn 13 years ago
Is there such a thing as too many groups? I didn't think there was. There must be some other issue there
Zåçh Ç 13 years ago
^ Flickr tells me I can only put an image in 10 groups at a time so I went back and removed the picture from one of the groups it was in. Yet still it did not let me put it in this group.
Zåçh Ç 13 years ago
Okay, never mind. Now it's letting me add more images.
Karf Oohlu Posted 13 years ago. Edited by Karf Oohlu (member) 13 years ago
Okay, say I post my three most favoured ( and I agree, no minimum, if you were invited, you can post your 3 best, nuff said)
But what if...next month I've got a brand new best faved moc? do I delete my worst and post the new best, or can it get to just come in and play with the rest?


PS - maybe it should have been 3 most viewed? as I agree, favourites can be frivolous, damn, I'm such a frivolous bastard
admin
DARKspawn 13 years ago
Indeed, it would be ideal if you could remove images in favour of those that attract more favs. I also agree that favs are not the best gauge of a photo, but the fav stats are easy to find, & as everybody is submitting their best 3 shots, they are really only competeing against themselves.

I think "interestingness" is far more valid, so if you want to go by those stats then you are more than welcome. Nathan (Proudlove) has provided an awesome link under the Flickr river thread if you want to see the pool in order of interestingness. ^_^
McZargåld 13 years ago
How exactly is interestingness calculated according to the Flickr river?
Proudlove 13 years ago
Nobody knows except the Flickr gods, apparently.
Karf Oohlu 13 years ago
But apparently they will try to expain.

You just have te re-read the thing a few times, those inscrutable gods.

Interestingly enough, my MOC with the most favorites is the simple white tree. Beyond that, the only other things I have favorited are my CC Sigfig Photoshoots or various photos of Brickarms.

I have a question... if you've already added your top 3, but later on you post more stuff and you top 3 change, should you remove your old tops and add the new ones?

This question has already been addressed in this thread, check my last post

Can't I just post three popular MOCs that I think highlight my building skills and range the best?
admin
DARKspawn Posted 13 years ago. Edited by DARKspawn (admin) 13 years ago
Magnus, you can if you wish, however this is not the purpose of the group, the idea is to post the 3 images the "public" consider your best creations, otherwise my pics would be different too. Personally I'd just be happy if you participated =D Good to have you aboard.

I think Flickr have changed the stats page, It now shows the stats for today and yesterday, rather today and forever. ANyone know how to find the stats for the total period of membership of Flickr?
admin
gambort 12 years ago
They may not be storing it anymore. The total is still there but I can't find how to break it down by referrer.
ta||tim 12 years ago
Ah, found it
go to your stats
Click on All photos and videos... below the top ten today or yesterday
At the right, click on All time
