Richard Hollingworth was the first migration from Pixel Post to PixyBlog using our new Pixel Post export addon. We worked with Richard to export over 300 photos & descriptions and hundreds more comments going back more than 4 years. The migration went smoothly and all his work over the years has been retained on PixyBlog.
We have a few more photographers lined-up for migration soon, so keep watching our directory of photographers to see who's joining PixyBlog.
Last month we released the PixyBlog Hall-of-fame for both photos and photoblogs. The new rankings have been well received by the community and they are a valuable addition to our Top Photoblogs section. However, the system we used to calculate the rankings was relatively simple and prone to abuse, so today we have just released an updated Hall-of-Fame.
For the hall-of-fame photoblog rankings, we now take the age of the photoblog into account. This will help newer photoblogs to compete against the more established ones and hopefully give more accurate results.
The hall-of-fame photos has been re-worked to group photos from the same photographer together and only feature a photographer once. This allows a greater range of photos and photographers to be displayed and also stops one or two photographers from taking-over the entire list. Another benefit of having a greater selection of photos is that there will be more chance for new photos to appear on the list and existing photos to change position.
As with all the rankings on PixyBlog, we will continue to tweak our algorithms to try and give the most accurate results we can. We hope you like the improvements.
