Hm,

An almost even distribution between views / favorites / and a multiplier of these. I guess it will be hard to determine a true listing of what the "favorite" set of my pictures really is.

Thanks for participating,

Ingo

views imo dont mean a lot. people can view your image by accident on random deviation.

favs pretty much demonstrate how much people like a picture, however so do comments. it depends on the person whether they fav more or comment more. just because they havnt faved it doesnt mean they dont like it so much.

comments, imo, definitely outweigh views. i never even look at views.

Interesting proposition, hm.

How about:

Popularity = (Fav Count + Comment Count) * 2 + View Count

This puts twice as much emphasis on Faves and Comments each than on Views

Just thinking it through, don't call me a NERD - hahaha
