Default New Member Sort Options

It's now possible to sort members by username, and more interestingly, number of photos and number of critiques.

This may sound dumm and it probably is but how do I sort it?

Ok, I looked again and I now know, "Sort Options".
Well done. Another good idea may be to sort pictures in order of popularity. What do you think?

To sort, click on 'Members', and then choose a sort option by clicking on it in the 'Sort By' dropdown on the left side. It should then resort the memeber list automatically. If it doesn't do this please let me know what happens when you choose a different sort option and I will try to fix the problem. Thanks.

I plan on adding this in eventually. It will allow the following choices:

-Highest Rated
-Most viewed
-No Comments

Default Future changes...

I'm going to throw in my two cents again about tagging certain pictures as 'Highest Rated'. I'd hate to see this site turn in to a contest.

I'd rather keep it as a site to post travel related pictures and receive criticism and suggestions on how to improve the current picture or take a better picture in the future.

I can see value in a 'No Comments' list. If people go to the work to prepare and post a picture it would be nice to see them get some feedback on their effort.

That's a good point. I am also concerned about any kind of race for points. It can lead to some unpleasant behavior. In the meantime I need to do some backend prepping for speed reasons as well as this feature so it will be some time to do this anyway. If anyone else has opinions on whether I should have a sort by highest rated etc, please let me know.

I agree with Bob. Competing might not be healthy for the site.
I do think that listing by the number of views may be useful, as one makes a subconcious statement simply by clicking on the thumbnail, though one may not go to the trouble to enter a critique. Hmmm... Difficult one.

"I do think that listing by the number of views may be useful"...

Well, if I sort by VIEWS, I think this will just tend to increase the highest viewed ones just because they are the most viewed. On the other hand it would be quite interesting. By the way, a lot of views comes from specific Google searches, ie 'Mexican dancers', or 'Japanese girl photo'. So it may simply mean that the highest viewed photos have been indexed by Google very high up.
