New Ranking System

Jun 25, 2013

Our New Ranking System Highlights Best Spotters

We have launched a new rating system that ranks spotters based on the quality of their photo submissions. The new ranking system adds a gaming element to the site and rewards those who upload good quality photos consistently.


How do the rankings work?

There are several different components  including overall likes, favorites, comments and other factors. We will not be disclosing the exact algorithm we use in order to prevent gaming the system, but we can assure you that everyone has the same chance of ranking and we do not manually override any parameters.


What should I do to increase my ranking?

The answer is pretty simple: upload good quality photos and receive good community feedback. If your images get more likes and favorites - it's good for your rating. If you upload an image which no one is interested in - it's not good for your rating. If high-ranking spotters like your photos - it adds more to your rating. And so on.


We want to ask everyone not to get into heated arguments about his/her rating, analyzing competitor's uploads or blaming them for some misdeeds. We are not going to tweak the rating personally for any particular spotters.

You can see a list of the top-rated spotters here:

Even if you disagree with someone, it is important to be respectful of their opinion. Remember that everyone has different experiences and perspectives.

Thank you for the clarification. It's important for everyone to maintain a respectful and positive atmosphere when discussing ratings and analyzing competitor uploads. We understand that rating discrepancies may occur, but it's essential to avoid heated arguments and blaming others. Rest assured, we maintain a fair and unbiased approach and do not personally manipulate ratings for specific spotters. Let's focus on supporting each other and promoting a healthy and friendly community.
