Keep Keep, though the question does make me wonder, are you running out of Potd's? the other system would ensure alot of potd's in the future, but the quality would be very lacking ;) We trust in your Judgment of the potd's not your taste though :P

 #3 - Put them up in order - Posted by: DarthIain (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 09:30
I think you should put them up in order as we will get to see every PotD posted and we can vote on the quality that we think it deserves, because at the moment all of the PotDs are chosen by a administrator who has good taste and we vote on his/her taste.

Once we put em in order, we have no choice but to post all the complete crap that gets submitted as well as the decent and good stuff... I'm for keeping it the way it is.

 #5 - Posted by: Brutalious (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 10:47
If you put them in order.... Do you realize how many pictures would NOT make it during this sites lifetime? Keep it the way it is.

 #6 - Posted by: Zedar (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 11:26
Personally I think there needs to be a balance between the two. Like, for example, you post 'em in order, but you skip the ones that are blatantly pathetic and whatnot. Now that's just an example, and I'm sure it could be improved, but it could be the start of a good idea.

 #7 - Posted by: ZsoSahaal (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 12:25
Keep it the way it is -- don't want every crap pic up there.

 #8 - Posted by: Darth_Misa (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 14:48
I think in order...but please you could skip the ones that really suck...you know...the ones that...suck

 #9 - Posted by: afcgrimm (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 15:07
Put up all the ones that just make your eyes bleed. I LOVE watching all the colorful comments. Tust kidding (Sortof), keep, keep, keep!

 #10 - Posted by: afcgrimm (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 15:08
Mind deleting this comment and fix the typo on my last one? (Your site need an edit button oh so badly >.>)

 #11 - Posted by: ook (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 15:12
I think keeping the way it is would be better. The few times I've submitted ones there were about 800 pictures in the queue. That would take over 2 years for your picture to get up lol. :eek: And the ones I submitted were pretty good and got up in about a week. If you just take good pictures they'll eventually get up. :rock: :thumbsup:

 #12 - IF it aint broke - Posted by: Sniper_Shot (Member) on 08-05-2007 at 23:02
If it ain't broke don't fix it. If it's broke fix it (most of all if it's brokeback anything). The POTD isn't broke so keep it the same. :D

 #13 - *sigh* - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-06-2007 at 00:10
Why bother ask this population (jk3 community) how they want the potds put up? A good bit of them complain about every potd and are seemingly never pleased... even as it is NOW, subjectively. Those same ones that complain EVERY time don't even seem to KNOW what THEY want from a potd. So asking them how they want the potds put up is the same as asking a 2 year old, "Do you want the blue one, or the BLUE one?" You should probably give them a potd featuring a d*ick accompanied by 2 friendly middle fingers, with the caption, "Is it boring now, be-yotches?!!" *sigh*

 #14 - Posted by: Johnpp (Member) on 08-06-2007 at 01:00
The people who voted change it are the people who want their PotDs to go in, even though the staff (And most everyone else, for that matter) would think they are some drawing a 5 year old kid drew while eating an elephant leg and crying of Rosh. If it's not obvious by my comments, I want to keep it how it is.

 #15 - Posted by: marden (Member) on 08-06-2007 at 04:01
Hi 5, MJAY. Anyway, I think we should stay at the system we are using right now. Some comments already told why I chose this option. I'm just wondering why was this poll created in the first place...

 #16 - Posted by: UnaLaguna (Member) on 08-06-2007 at 14:50
I read "Put them up in order" as putting up EVERY picture submitted. Providing the POTD-selector-people-things put a reasonable amount of effort into picking a good picture I'm happy for this to stay the way it is.

 #17 - Posted by: InyriForge (Staff) on 08-06-2007 at 16:12
[quote]I'm just wondering why was this poll created in the first place...[/quote]Because people constantly complain and insult PotD submitters and we're wondering if people would rather just have every PotD uploaded, regardless of quality, so they would stop harassing the [i]staff[/i] for trying to pick what we think [i]you[/i] guys [i]might[/i] like. I don't pick what I like, most of the time, I pick what I think will cause the least fuss. You have no idea how hard you guys are to please. And I try so hard to pick stuff I think the majority of people won't feel the need to flame anybody over. -_- If we started going in order I'd most likely wipe out all/most of the PotDs currently in the queue, to give people a decent chance at their PotDs going up, and I'd set some kind of rule about consecutive PotDs so folks didn't send in 50 in one day and rule the PotD section for two months.

I'm a staff member on another Filefront site and my vote goes for keeping it the way it is. Some of the pictures we got were really horrible and the person who submitted it was more likely to have their feelings hurt by having everyone ridicule it rather than simply having their picture overlooked.

 #19 - Posted by: Szera (Member) on 08-06-2007 at 21:47
ID LOVE to see the funny stuff u guys get thats like dumb lol

 #20 - Posted by: Szico_VII (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 06:12
You couldn't possibly post all the submissions. Some would be a waste of time anyway.

 #21 - NO! - Posted by: oskr (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 06:38
if they are put up without skipping any it will be months.. or even years until they are shown

 #22 - Posted by: Eruan (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 12:30
Keep it the way it is. Plus, this is the picture of the day. Meaning that it is a picture chosen to be displayed for an entire day, submitted by one of the community. In a way, the potds chosen represent the entire community and site. I'm sure a potd with the caption "OMg, [email protected] Rosh die in a pit!" is not the best way to represent the filefront admins. (not that there is a picture with that caption, but you get my point)

 #23 - Since I complained about the pole... I'll offer a remedy to the problem. - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 21:49
This is how the boys over at BCFiles do it... There's a Monthly PoTD release. All potds that don't actually BECOME potds for THAT month, are put into a .zip and released to the public. That way, people will be able to see all the shots that didn't make it up for that month. At the end of next month, the same thing. Rinse, dry, and reuse process as desired. You're welcome.:)

 #24 - Also... - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 22:17
As the month passes, and potds come in. Name each potd with its corresponding user, and date it as you drop it into the Monthly PoTD Release folder. Examples: MJAY - 9_12_2007 Starforce2 - 9_23_2007 InyriForge - 9_30_2007 These, along with 320 other potds would be named and dated as you go through the month. Don't wait till the end of the month to do them all... That's suicide. Your release title should be... "JK3Files PoTD Release - September 2007 Edition" Also, feel free to include the user's caption with his potd. Doing this would make the Monthly release something to look forward to. :) Again, you're welcome.

 #25 - Finally... (Yes, one more post...) - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-07-2007 at 22:26
The staff here at JK3Files DO NOT need to change how they handle the PoTDs. Please continue to show us potds that you think we might like. I know I PERSONALLY appreciate ALL the effort you guys put into making us happy. So a big hug and kiss for Inyri, and a pat on the shoulder to all the guys. If you try to do it how I have recommended, then EVERYONE will see ALL the potds submitted, and NOONE will be left out.

 #26 - Posted by: Johnpp (Member) on 08-08-2007 at 03:03
That .ZIP idea sounds alright. That way we don't have to see the pictures of Rancors. Unless thats what you like...you can always download the .zip. I'm for that idea.

 #27 - NO!!! - Posted by: WookieFeet (Member) on 08-08-2007 at 10:30

 #28 - Put Them Up In Order - Posted by: obiwan20 (Member) on 08-10-2007 at 13:48
Put them up in order so everybody has a ther time in the lime light

 #29 - Posted by: J_B_ (Member) on 08-10-2007 at 15:14
ive sent like two photos that are like The best by humor And they are never put out because the admin Dont Like it I say Put them up in order Everyone needs a chance:furious::rock:

 #30 - #29. Thats why I recommended a Monthly Release. - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-10-2007 at 17:45
That way everyone can still see your photos. Personally, I would really enjoy browsing through a potd release with their captions.

 #31 - @MJAY - Posted by: BattleGroupOmega (Member) on 08-10-2007 at 20:57
They do that at BCfiles? i thought that was just stlegacyfiles... anyway I vote to keep it the same (and i like MJAY's suggestion too). The reason being is that if you start to release everything, i think people would give more "it sux -11111111111111111111111111111111111111111/10" comments and other stupid things like that, because you would be posting PotDs that would otherwise not be released (IE They are not that great) and the community would walk all over them and complain more than they do now.

 #32 - @BattleGroupOmega - Posted by: MJAY (Member) on 08-10-2007 at 22:46
Well, they DID that at BCFiles. I only recently started going back there regularly. So I'm not sure if they had a release last month or not.

 #33 - yeah #3 - Posted by: TheAllPowerful (Member) on 08-11-2007 at 05:04

 #34 - Posted by: Matt_el_G (Member) on 08-11-2007 at 09:14
It's not really worthy of the title 'picture of the day' if you're just putting them up in order of reception, is it? It's just... well, a picture!
