Default how are these points working?

My latest picture is commented by 4 people, 3 of them gave a big smile (2 points each) and 1 a normal smile (1 point), but it only counts 5 points. How come?

This is the link:

Point are updated every 24 hours.

Also, I checked you picture, do you know that montage as this one are not allowed on TE? Have you read the Terms of Service?

Your picture was an obvious montage on which you've added a sky. Since this type of picture are not permited (read the Terms of Service) a moderator has probably deactivated your picture and you should have received an email about it.

Also I'm not "mumbling", I'm just trying to help.

You're welcome.

I selected sky and added more saturation/color in the background, I see lots of pictures with réal montage, like the mirrored one of turkey just placed here today.
So why is mine not alloud?

You just need to reply the mail you've received telling what you did on the picture and the admin might reactivate the picture.

For the other "illegal" posted picture, admin and moderators can't possibly see all the picture posted everyday on this site. So some may go through the screening. But member can help by clicking the "report problem" in the "photo option" menu near each picture.

No, I would never ever do that: reporting about other photo's! When it's a nice photoshop I'll even compliment them with their work and otherwise, don't say anything at all. ;)

Why?

The complain button was put there for other posters to complain about images which break the Terms of Service of this site.

If the admins didn't want people to complain, they would remove the button.

And there is a benefit to removing rule-breaking images.

Look at how many photos are posted here daily - the more 'nonsense' images there are, the more cluttered the site becomes, it loses its value.

I wasn't aware of those terms before today (shame on me!) Also read about shots of pets and family and mostly those shots aren't really that interesting at all: no spectaculair pov, light or setting, just family snapshots. And I agree that that kind of pictures could be removed. When it's an interesting setting we wouldn't even notice it's just someones own pet/kid and then it's vallue for this site.
