Either way, that's what I'm doing.

Just an idea anyway...

Maybe make a person's vote not count for the first 30 days of their opening? Really the voting isn't that important to me anyway - the critiques are what I enjoy. As it stands right now, the photo(s) with the highest scores is not necessarily the best shot.

I find it a bit strange when a technically poor photo gets a 10 and a comment of "I love this". I submit to this website in the hope someone can critique my efforts to help me become a better photographer. I feel the scoring has to reflect technical competence, style, composition and feel, rather than whether it's a cute doggy in the (off-centre) picture.
Keep the 9s and 10s for the truly great photos, and don't be afraid to score low, provided you can justify it with a comment.

It ruins the critiqueing process because those that really care about improving their photography aren't going to continue to post. I don't want to see this place go down in that respect.

Yeah, OK they aren't the greatest pics in the world, but possibly deserve higher than a 6. I would say that though ;0) In fact, looking back Neddy seems to have given me a 6 for all my pics apart from one and almost always only gives a rating and no comment.
Never mind anyway...

And for what it's worth, a non-cook can appreciate a good meal, but they will not appreciate it to the depths that a cook will, simply because they do not know what went into the mix. Whether you decide to rate on that is, of course, your perogative. I agree with Neddy in that some of these photo are way off base in their rating (IMHO), and believe me, the online photo albums of the internet are filled with proof that not "everyone with a camera can take a decent picture of a bug". We are trying to understand these lower ratings moreso than discredit them. And without an explanation as to why, we'll never learn. I don't want every photo I see to tell a story and show the subject's history, present, and future. But then again, maybe someone does. It explains a lot if those are the standards you hold a photo to. I am still curious as to what you would give an honest 10 to. There are few photos I could award a 10 to as well, but it would be most interesting.
Maybe we should consider having some kind of 'your top 10 all time photos' list, of famous or amateur photographers on this website somewhere? It would show the different tastes of different visitors.
