WAYWRN Composite -- 25 thumb minimum - Page 77

post #1141 of 2070
Yes.

There are some really nice fits the last 10 or 20 pages or so, but then some other amazingly average fits that I am frankly surprised made the cut.

Thumbing has become increasingly liberal since starting this thread. I don't think this is a bad thing, as the greater volume of thumbs allows for a more rigorous understanding of what has been approved of by the crowd (two fits that would have got an 8 and a 10 a couple of years ago might now get a 16 and a 20, highlighting the difference in quality per crowd standards)

 

But I've been toying with the idea of increasing the thumb minimum to 25. Thoughts?

What this thread needs is more commentary. Raising thumbs threshold is not going to prevent average fits and will only limit the number of good fits in this very successful thread. We all know that the number of thumbs is not directly correlated to the quality of the individual fit and we have a lot of excellent fits not getting past 16 thumbs coz the wearer isn't well known and then we have head shots.

Maybe you should do so quietly :teach:

Thanks @Claghorn

BTW did I go 4 for 4?
post #1148 of 2070
No, I really don't think that raising the hurdle for inclusion will really do all that much, I think it is more an issue of the law of averages.. Anyway, some good stuff here..

This time, almost every fit was new to me, so I was thumbing as I went and don't think I missed any.

Thanks, my man. I must admit I'm rather pleased with it as well.

This. I find it suprising that this fit only got 24 likes. Which leads us to this:

I would love to see more discussion about the fits in this thread. We've tried that a few times before though and the response was at best lukewarm... Then again, this thread delivers exactly what the title suggests: a compilation of WAYWRN fits that got 20 thumbs or more. That's all. No claims about quality or so.


However, more discussion would be good for this thread, I think. So just for the heck of it, I did this:

I just browsed through this thread and selected pics that 'spoke' to me. Please feel free to discuss, critique or amend my selection.

(I intentionally removed the poster's names, though most of them are familiar faces anyway...)

 great choices and tough to make.  IIRC  a lot of outstanding fits in the past week or two and to my eye it's getting better in WAYWRN.  

Props for not including yr own :D ... one of my favs -

I rarely chime in with opinions..due to the fact that style is very subjective..but here goes.. my one thing that I look for  primarily when giving a thumb is I need a full pic.. from at least the shoulders to the shoes...so I can get more of a visual idea versus a shirt tie and p.s pic..then I look for coherence..one thing I noticed with your pics elio is that for the most part those pictures looked really good.. good natural light, above average camera (or so it seems) and coherent outfits.. I feel that the amount of posters with good fits has increased a lot from where it was 3-4 years ago..you are seeing more first time posters who are posting really good outfits than posters posting mediocre outfits and thus the increase in thumbs..yes there are some that benefit from a popularity standpoint on SF but IMO most of those posters have earned and continue still to put up good fit pics..just my two cents..
