No matter what competition changes are implemented, there is no accounting for peoples taste. A terrible picture to one person is great to another. I gave up on the comps a long time ago apart from the odd, very rare entry because my taste isn't the same as the rest of GTP. So many times i've voted for a picture that has bombed in the comps...it's just how it goes. I do agree that the GT6 photomode forum is nowhere near as friendly and as sharing as it was over on the GT5 one, the like button has a lot to do with that but i also think that GT6 enticed a lot of new players who share pictures for the sake of it...and to many of us who take our photos a bit more serious we find it hard to stand out amongst the hundreds of part time happy snappers. Don't get me wrong, we welcome everyone here but i think the GT6 forums are just over saturated with people who revel in just sharing anything without a thought. I'd love a weekly thread that votes ONE picture in a week...a proper Hall of fame! I would never want our photomode forum to become an elitist haven, but i also don't want it to become a library of terrible photos and lazy likers! I've been close to leaving GTP a few times since GT6 came out but i still like the group atmosphere on here from the original GT5 members.
