When bees don’t comment much on photos, does that typically mean that the photos posted are ugly? Just curious 🙂
Some posts get hundreds of comments, and so many get only a few polite ones. What do you think?

I think a lot of it depends on how popular the poster is. Ie, whether they’re a regular poster who’s been around for months/years or someone who barely posts anything.
I wouldn’t take offense! Sometimes posts just don’t get commented on because there are so many other threads.

Um, I doubt it, sometimes it’s probably a timing thing. I don’t even see all the posts because I’m popping in and out a lot and maybe others are too.

Sometimes it’s just a question of timing, posting when not many people will see it, and the thread getting lost.

Agree with PPs….but other times, yeah the photos are not that great.
I see some posters leaving basically the same comments on $5,000 pro photos as they leave on “my cousin has a nice camera!” threads.

That’s cool. I am only asking out of curiosity, not out of hurt feelings or my own doubts. But sometimes I see people with 0 or 1 comment, and I wondered if it were a popularity thing.
Thanks guys. It’s very interesting!

yeah i think timing is the biggest factor. i often miss thread because they want me to do actual work here now and then

I think it’s many things. Like PP said, how “popular” the Bee is, timing of the post, and also format. I am much more likely to comment on a post when pictures are embedded in the post itself. I am often too lazy to follow links to blogs, etc.

I love the picture threads on here but I rarely ever comment because most of the time I’m one the bee I’m not even logged in and I don’t feel like logging in to tell write one word. The pics are always gorgeous on here I don’t think anyone would post their pics if they didn’t absolutely love them right? Unless they were asking if their photographer sucked lol.
Sometimes the board is really slow and all I can think of is will someone please post some darn pics for me to look at!
