I just counted almost 60 gallery uploads by the same person. This kind of GALLERY FLOODING is totally ridiculous and utterly inconsiderate to those of us who do well to post one or two images a week. What incentive do we have to post when your ONE image gets buried in a 2 0r 3 page avalanche just because someone wants to farm a bunch of reward points?

good point !
... though i am not sure if the current flooding is for earning credits or to build up a gallery by a new member. i totally agree to a limit of 5 uploads a day and a BRANCH for uploading a complete new gallery WITHOUT presenting THESE uploads under 'new art' ... maybe that will do the trick.
Actually it doesn't matter why they are flooding the galleries I wish people would not do it. The programmers could easily limit how many images from one person will show up in the galleries without limiting how many they can upload. In order to see the rest you would need to follow them or go to their personal gallery. That would allow people to upload as many as they wish without annoying anyone.
I'm just back from the blind since a few days and damn... wtf is going on here? I plowed through 3 pages of images of the very same artist to finally see the work of other users?
This here is absolutely liked and faved! Read the forum thread too, ridiculous that staff did NOT do anything since months.
Good for you, Rod. I saw that upload bomb yesterday after uploading my own image. Almost couldn't believe my eyes. There used to be a limit to one image per day, then if you became a Prime Member, I believe it was 2 images (maybe it was 3 ?) per day. Regardless, obviously this person hasn't a clue about social correctness, but then again we live in times where that seems to not count any longer. I'm going to find that forum thread to add my displeasure concerning this utterly selfish behaviour.
Damn... where have I been (under a rock?)… I didn't know there was a reward point system! I have enough trouble uploading 1 image a day, of course that would be easier if I weren't trying to tell a story with my images and narratives. While I do appreciate art for art's sake, I have noticed a large number of images of the same figures over and over again in slightly different poses. I have also noticed an increasing number of images advertising new products... to the point that I'm starting to consider this a marketing site not an art site. If the point system is encouraging "junk" uploads perhaps a good solution would be to reward members for uploads with a set amount of points if they upload any number of image in a day; i.e. 1 point/day if they upload 1 image or 10 images. There's still an opportunity for abuse by uploading a "junk" image everyday, but at least there' no incentive to upload more than 1/day. Thanks for having the courage to take this issue to the "people" Rod, since admin hasn't responded.
I totally forgot about the points. Something like that, some people will try and find some way to exploit it. I agree with zaqxsw: "1 point/day if they upload 1 image or 10 images". I assume that would be fairly easy to implement, and would seem fair for everyone. Thanks for posting this RodS.
I didn't even realise there was a points or reward system....not that it would make any difference to me Its taken me 10 days to get 7 images up and i only just have over 60 images in my gallery....so like everyone else i disagree with the upload bomb.....3 pages and 60+ images in one day.....its not cool......
I'm scratching also my head on how it's even possible and I agree with g1tip! As Barb said already, I agree with you, Rod "Flooding the galleries is not cool" (there are also a lot of other strange things going on in this gallery, won't say a name, but this is a real PITA) .... it's selfish and more than rude!!!
I thought that one could only post a maximum of five images a day... then after reading this, I see that one person posted something like 60????? what just happened here? I don't mind people having a lot of work one would like to post but this is ridiculous! come on people lets some one else post a few too..
