| p.1 #1 · Vote for Featured Thread and new Like button |
We are happy to announce a new aspect in our Landscape Photographer, Nature & Wildlife and People Photography boards.
It’s a voting system designed to select a "Featured Thread" of the week for each board.
In the past, I would select certain threads to highlight, subjectively. This new system gives each of you a chance to participate in selecting the featured threads based on your votes.
Every week you can vote for threads you like by clicking on the Vote as Featured Thread button located on top of the thread. Grant votes to as many threads as you want.
The voting button will be active for 1-week giving all threads the exact same time exposure regardless of when they were posted. Once a thread is older than 1-week, the voting button will be removed and the thread will be included on the upcoming Friday voting count.
If there is a tie, the thread with most replies wins.
If the Vote as Featured Thread button is absent from a thread, that means, the thread has already been exposed and voted for 1-week and it's waiting for final vote counting on the upcoming Friday.
Featured threads will automatically get bumped up to the top of the board with the word "Featured" before its subject line and the winner will be featured on our FM Frontpage, Gallery, Tweeter and Facebook.

I also added a new “Like” feature for comments on a thread. If you “Like” a post just click on it. Our system will let you know how many people like your post, and if you hover over the "X members" link, you can see exactly who liked it.
I know it might be a little tricky getting used to these new features but I think it will add some fun to our forums. So go ahead - start voting for your favorite threads today!
All the best,
