Bureaucracy, I don't get it.

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 14, 2010, 12:20 PM



Looking Back by nivaun

I could hug and kiss all of you (the guys will just get a hug. :lol: ) Thanks so much for your comments and support. I had no idea this would create such a response but I was able to meet the criteria and my photo was accepted. I am really touched by all of you. Thanks again!


It's sad. My submission of looking back (above) was declined by Stand Out Shots not because it is a bad photo but because it does not have enough views or favorites. I only get maybe 8-12 people visiting my site on a given day and I cannot grasp what in the hell views or favorites would have to do with a photo being accepted. I was told to resubmit after it had gained enough. Sometimes I just don't understand bureaucracy.

They see some logic in it and considering it is their group, I suppose they can run it how they want to. Everything has worked out in the end. :)

Yes u r right. The fault lies with you for wanting to be a part of such an organization, no?

Nah, if we were all Einstein...life would be boring :lol: Hey, live and learn :shrug:

I'm sure I said this to you before that I don't care for any groups and belong to none except for the human race and that one I joined by default :lol:

Are you kidding me? Their standards for allowing photos is if you have a mindless following of people who fave your stuff??? That's ridiculous and asinine. Reasons for rejection should be if it doesn't fit into the theme of the Group or they have a set standard of quality. But faves??? What the hell does that have to do with anything? `kkart has shown us artists that have had maybe 100 views in a year and even less faves and their work is stunningly amazing.

At least I have a Group that I know to avoid now.

That is what I couldn't figure out either. I am told it is their way of weeding out the snapshots. What I have noticed though is that it is the snapshots that get the most views. :)

They have been very kind and responsive and I have now met my 20 fave criteria so I re-sent the photo.
