[Suggestion] Penalty for uploads without names

Jan 21, 2021 - permalink

Hi,

just like there is a "penalty" for uploading duplicates (you lose one direct upload) there should be a penalty for uploading images that are not named within, for example, 12h (either from the uploader or someone else). There are currently the usual suspects that just upload everything they can gather and simply don't give the names of the women, although you can cleary see in the filename that the image was downloaded from Instagram/facebook and therefore with a chance of 99% you know the name.

I really like GWM for its high quality posts, not just the image quality itself, but rather other informations like names and Instagram usernames in the comment section. If you want to make a good upload then please give the name, if it's already given on the site from where you got that image from - it's not that hard and helps others and the organized structure of GWM. If it's feasible to get the name (without going NSA-mode and doing some research, although it's appreciated ๐Ÿ˜…), then simply give us the name! And if not, because you're lazy, then deal with it that you can't upload as many images anymore. In the case that you honestly don't know the name that's bad luck and you just have to live with it, on the other hand it's not even that bad if it's a "once a week/month"-thing and you don't do it all the time.

And before you point at me: Yes, I also have a few uploads without a name, but those make 0.5% out of all my uploads (~0.13% if you only take uploads from Instagram into account, but unfortunately I wasn't able to get a name for these).

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

I think I know who your referring to ... there's a particular poster who's notorious for not including names with his/her uploads lol

From another thread I know that there are some users with "infinite uploads" from back in the days when GWM was new and small, but this is a very small group that wouldn't be touched by my suggested rule. If I remember correctly, @tempp is the only one of them that is still active, but in his/her defense the first name is always given in the filename which is much more helpful than a url from facebook where it's impossible to get the original Instagram post.

I feel it's not good to punish people providing work for free for the website. It would just lead to people simply not bothering to upload at all, in the end.

It's already a bother to search for new content, a penalty is too much. Besides, what if the content is from countries that use different languages and fonts like douyin?

I agree with nerotutto. People would just stop uploading pictures when they dont know the name or are unsure.

^^^^ Yep. Not everybody who comes to this site can recognise every single athlete, bodybuilder, figure/fitness model etc in the world, let alone know them all by name ...

The one infamous uploader knows the names, but thinks he gets higher scores with no name.

Penalty? You a cop?

Is this kindergarden? I get it you like your picture with names, but sometimes its hard or time consuming to tag a name to a photo.

On the flip side, you rather have lots of content, where you can do your own reseach to find a name OR punish contributor because they havent included names, and thin down the pool of content.

I know I prefer the former option.

@bobschnelker who even cares about scores?

Sometimes it's too tedious to tag name. I usually download the directly from Douyin on my phone and use my phone to upload directly too. Adding names via my phone is too tedious while the name is already in the video (I usually add a name a little later or someone else names them). The moment penalties are imposed for not tagging names, I'm gone.

Penalty for those who don't name? How about instead a reward for those who do?

Jan 21, 2021 - permalink

It's annoying, but it shouldn't be punished.

If someone refuses to tag a picture with a name because it boosts his score, then that sounds... quite sad. If we still did score-voting, I'd Zero-bomb it.

I'm more inclined to favorite a picture for an unknown, but I suppose I can make an effort to favorite an alternative upload after the identity has been revealed.

What would prevent people from adding any name, no matter if it is correct, in order to avoid being penalized? Such a policy might make more problems than the one it is supposed to fix. I agree with rettosu: a reward for a correct name would be more sustainable. A good name directly contributes to the quality of the upload, so maybe a potential reward is more direct uploads?

Yeah, this is probably the best route to go about unnamed women. People like to be rewarded.

Iโ€™d like a penalty for morphs.

One in particular keeps popping up and itโ€™s so obvious. Stop!

I'd be against any penalty for not providing a name. As already stated in another thread not all public pictures have names associated with them. Penalising someone for not providing a name would likely dissuade them from uploading the image. This creates the issues now not only do you have an image without a name, but you also have one less image that the community could have appreciated.

Since anyone can provide a name for an image, I would suggest providing the name if you know it or do a reverse Google Image search and see if you can help fill in the blank. This is better than dissing people who didn't provide a name.

Penalty? Really?? Hell, I'm just happy to see so many new images of the women we adore. Sure a name would be nice but punishing an uploader...not a good idea.

Jan 21, 2021 - permalink

All right, everyone shut up, we should have a penalty for unnamed photos like Inagine said, and that's final. Its not fair for us to not know who the girl is. Ive said many time before on many images, if you dont know who the girl is, then DON'T POST IT. Thanks!

I wish morphs were allowed. The model's name should be changed to "morph" (since it's not actually her). Moreover, morphs would not appear in any of the categories on the homepage, so the only way to view morphs would involve explicitly seeking them out.

if you dont know who the girl is, then DON'T POST IT.

This is absolutely incorrect and the posting of good pics should be encouraged whether you know the name or not.

What should be discouraged is not entering the name if you know it. However, rewarding people for entering a name on their uploads (or punishing them if they don't; these two give the same incentive, just one is nicer than the other) risks discouraging uploading good pics of unknowns at all, which as I just said, is something I want to encourage. Several of you brought up this concern above and I want to echo it as a concern I have as well.

Maybe the solution is to reward entering correct names on any pics, not just your own uploads. Currently the site doesn't reward this in any way. I'm not sure what would be a good reward though.

I wish morphs were allowed.

That's a discussion for a different thread, but the short answer is they are not going to be allowed on the main site; they are allowed in the Fantasy section of the forum.

It isn't necessarily "bad" to upload photo without a name. As some have mentioned, the name is not always known and there's nothing wrong with not knowing.

What seems undesirable to me is a habit of constantly uploading photos with no names without making the effort to add names.

The highest quality upload has 4 attributes: 1. conforms to site posting rules; 2. Has accurate tags; 3. Has accurate name; 4. Is not a duplicate.

Maybe the solution is to reward entering correct names on any pics, not just your own uploads.

I agree with this. Maybe more direct uploads as a reward?

This could also reward users who like to add names as a housekeeping activity (assuming a few folks do this).

There are definitely users who like to do that, but they aren't necessarily the ones who upload a lot.
