How do I search for another member in the community?

You can search for members on the main Aminus3 community page here http://www.aminus3.com/community/

Why does my name not display on the list of community members?

The community page shows a list of members who are activated and who have posted images 'recently'. How recently depends on what level of member you are. For example, new members are removed from the list if they do not post a new image within a week, whereas members in the 100+ category are removed only if they go a full month without posting. In this way, Aminus3 rewards those who post consistently over time.

If your name does not appear in the list this means that either your account is not yet activate or you have not posted an image recently.

Note that the list of community members is cached and changes do not appear immediately.

Why is my name greyed out on the list of community members?

Members with grey names on the community page are members that have not posted an image today (the current calendar day). Alternatively, members listed in color have posted an image today.

Posting a new image for the current day will allow your name to appear in colour again.

Note that the list of community members is cached and changes do not appear immediately.

Why does my image for today not display on the community page?

Firstly, ensure that your account has been activated. Only the photos of active members are displayed on public Aminus3 pages.

Additionally, the community page will only show a subset of the daily photos for a given calendar day. Hitting refresh on your browser will load a new subset of images. We are in the process of redesigning the community page to better represent each of our members.

Why is my image count different on the community page and archive page?

As a means to prevent people from back posting images to get a higher count on the community page, we only count the number of images since the member sign up date.

Although the community page doesn't count back-posted images (any images with dates older than your start-up date), your archive page counts all the images you have posted.

What images featured on the Aminus3 front page?

The Aminus3 front page features a variety of images, comments and galleries.

This includes a section called Trending Now. This area shows a selection of the top 100 images from the previous day as ranked by the numbers of views, comments and rating stars.

Can I setup a Blog Watch to track my favorite Aminus3 blogs?

You can add an Aminus3 member to your Blog Watch by clicking on the eye icon under the rating stars on the right side of the image. Note that you must be signed in to see this icon.

You can view your Blog Watch images on the admin page under Favorites, Blog Watch.

Free Aminus3 members are limited to following 50 people. A+ members can have an unlimited number of BlogWatch favorites.

Where can I see a list of community images by date?

All photos posted to Aminus3 each day can be on the image page.

On the current day, images are ordered randomly. For all previous days, images are ordered by rank which is determined by the number of views, comments and ratings.

How are recent comments selected on the Aminus3 front page?

On the Aminus3 front page there is a section called Recent Comments. This displays a random selection of comments for the day.

Note that these comments are cached on the server and may not display in real time.
