I thought it would be interesting to see how difficult it is to attain the various system awarded image uploader microbadges. So, please help me out by answering the following poll question. You can see how many images you have uploaded on your contributions page. By clicking on the number on the contributions page you can access all of the images you have uploaded to various game galleries. By clicking on hot, it should order them by thumbs (approximately) and you should be able to do a quick count. What I am looking for here is the number with 3+ thumbs divided by the total.



Poll
What percentage of your images have 3 or more thumbs and thus count for the system awarded microbadge?
less than or equal to 5%
less than or equal to 10%
less than or equal to 15%
less than or equal to 20%
less than or equal to 25%
less than or equal to 30%
less than or equal to 35%
less than or equal to 40%
less than or equal to 45%
less than or equal to 50%
less than or equal to 55%
less than or equal to 60%
less than or equal to 65%
less than or equal to 70%
less than or equal to 75%
less than or equal to 80%
less than or equal to 85%
less than or equal to 90%
less than or equal to 95%
greater than 95%

Interesting poll! I've only uploaded 10 images thus far and 9 of the 10 have 3+ thumbs so I guess that puts me in the 90% range.

Thanks. With most of the responses over 80%, I'm beginning to feel like a real loser at 25%. In fact, there was one kind geek who recently went through and gave some of my 2 thumb images an additional thumb or I would have been much lower than I am.

I'm at 5 out of 13 (38%).

Sometimes I go and thumb up images of people who contribute those standard game images. I use those images a lot when learning about games. They are invaluable to me.

Thanks. I appreciate it.

I just noticed that you were the geek who doubled up my percentage. I was going to geekmail my thanks, but it's even better to state it publicly.

I try to remember to do that myself, but I haven't been very good so far.

I like the idea of this poll.

I'm 7/39, so about 18%. My DIY versions of Cant Stop and Hive have a few more thumbs, so that makes me happy.

7/15 - 50% or less. I really should upload more shots!

39/100 or 39% exactly. Seems about right, since my niche appears to be largely boring shots of obscure games.

Most of my picks are from obscure thrift store games I've picked up, so they are rarely viewed, and therefore, rarely thumbed.

Only a beginner here. Had a score of 4 out of 5, but with my recent uploads it dropped to 50% at 7 out of 14.

431 game images but only THREE have received 4 or more thumbs. blush

My most thumbed image was a crass and obvious plea for attention:

Mine's about 18%just over 30% (27/151)(46/151), so I've voted less than or equal to 2035%, as I'm sure is what is expected.

Being pedantic though, the way the options are phrased it would be equally true, if I'd gone with less than or equal to 95% devil

Edit: Much appreciation to MusedFable, for making a liar of me

Yeah, like most things on BGG, the number of thumbs is proportional to the popularity of the game in question, in addition to the quality of the contribution. 6 of my 62 images have 3+ thumbs. OTOH, I only tend to upload images for games with no images - or very few - images, or occasionally for editions not currently represented. Oh, and I'm not a particularly good photographer, which doesn't help matters any...

(P.S. Please do _not_ consider this a plea for thumbs - I don't really care how many thumbs any of my contributions have or don't have...)

Edit: my non-plea for thumbs didn't work, at it's now 16 of 62. Thanks to everyone who took the time to look through my images to pick out ones you felt worthy of a thumb. And thank you for _not_ randomly thumbing the poor images I've submitted...

I'm under 20%, but I'm not much for the 'artsy' imagines, so that's probably about what I'd expect.

4/4.

The curve looks pretty flat so far.

I'd be curious to see % thumbed cross referenced to # uploaded.

Get those 'quality' versus 'quantity' metrics.
