Is the rating system fair?
We’ve worked hard since we launched Photocrowd to make the photo rating system as fair and accurate as possible.
Photo rating is anonymous, so you can’t see whose photo you are rating, what rank that photo currently is, or any comments that have been made about it.
We’ve got lots of behind the scenes systems in place too, including making sure that people don’t have multiple Photocrowd accounts, recognising and correcting users whose photo rating is not sincere, and identifying photos that are being rated upwards by a member’s friends or family.
Although we are constantly improving the rating system we are now pretty confident that the list of winning photos for each challenge represents what the crowd really thinks of the entries. Whether you agree with their choice is a different matter!
