What is the voting-center?
The voting-center is the place where all decissions are made, starting with the structure of fotocommunity with all it's channels, new sections, projects, monthly themes up to the decission about photos entering the gallery or not.
The voting-center is one of our areas for "members-only" which means "fee-guest"- and "trial"-accounts won't be able to enter.
You can access the voting-center by clicking:
You'll receive a filtered view of the voting-center fitting your userstatus, your proposals and the votes you already did. There will only appear those votings which you can actually vote on, depending on your Credits.
Once a photo has been nominated for the gallery voting, photographers can choose between two different gallery voting processes.
1. “Open” voting means, that the title of the photo and the (nick)name of the photographer are displayed and comments are allowed during the voting phase. In addition, photographers have the option not to display the voting comments after the voting phase is over. This decision can be reversed: photographers can always choose infinitely as often as needed, to hide or unhide the comments received during voting.
2. Anonymous voting without comments. In this case neither title nor (nick)name of the photographer will be displayed and comments are not allowed during voting.
Everybody also has the option, of completely disabling his photos for voting. In this case they can´t even be suggested. Another option is to individually decide for every image, which has been proposed for the gallery.
Additional comments for gallery images - new and existing - can be surpressed. This decision can be repeated and reversed as often as one likes.
Voting proposals in a foreign language.
In your preferences (http://www.fotocommunity.de/pc/account/changeaccount/1) you can adjust the different variants.
Proposing a photo
Please remember that you need to be a basic-member at least to make proposals for the gallery.
Besides that the photographer whos photo you wanna propose might have checked "I want to decide individually for every picture" in his gallery settings. In this case it might take some time until your proposal goes online. (More information regarding e-mail settings and options here (http://www.fotocommunity.com/info/E-mail_settings_%26_options))
