I noticed it this morning and gave it a whirl.  It was entertaining, but beyond that I'm not sure what the purpose of it is.

Well, they mention if you play 10 times or more your results will be public and displayed on the site.  

Good incentive to avoid it if you want to keep a low profile.

I guess if you score high maybe you want people to know, though.  Like the guy that gets the highest score on the video game?  You get bragging rights :D

Oops. I played it 39 times. Kind of a good learning experience. Guessed 75.41% correct, rank 7.

Achilles wrote on the DT forum that it was originally part of the editors training. Now I understand the strange rejection reasons I get, if they only look at the pics for this short time.  :P

Sure it looks nice, and is perhaps even fun to play, with a beneficial side effect in educating the contributors, but I'm missing something. They intend to lower our commission, and spend their resources on a game?

I'm not sure also why they want to make your rank public - as they say it is only a game and that you are "guessing" the results!

I think it would be better if the two choices were of similar subjects, and of the same type of file i.e. photo v photo or vector v vector.

Interesting game. I'm always in 73%-75%. I already see the selling potential pattern:

1. Vectors with beautiful people
2. Vectors of banners, borders and backgrounds
3. Beautiful people doing something
4. Beautiful people just posing
5. Isolated shots
6. Interiors
7. Exteriors

With some subcategories of course.
I also think DT should leave us an option to make our rank invisible, or to simply erase it, and start again if we want to.

Agreed! There should be an option if contributors want it visible or not.
The thing is - is it fickle, or does it have some bearing on the contributor within the site?

maybe DT wants us to get gambling addicted , like the bars with the one arm bandits. you stay there longer , get drunk, lose money, forget your wife and kids... so you spend more time there.
ie. spend more time playing the game at DT so you forget about IS,SS,etc  :)

so the secret is out, DT editors don't review our work, they play this with our submissions, ie. their own version of russian roulette . oops, I should've said rumanian roulette, lol

what, I didn't join Dreamstime to play video games !

C'est tres cute, but I would rather that Dreamstime IT spend their time better to fix  the search engine so our new images get more views, instead on creating some game for us to play !

My point exactly. Either that, or (even) more marketing.

 DT is now connected with MySpace.
now you get their IT ppl working more on games vs contributors viewing and sales.

what is DT doing besides inventing  games for us to play?

Instead of wasting money paying the programmers to make silly games, why not increase our commissions. Or find an alternative to low paying subs?

Maybe they are looking for new reviewers?

same thing happened to me last night... after some wine ;)

I like the game but I think they shouldn't mix illustrations with photos. I always pick the photo for some reason.

Sorry to say, although I like DT as they are one of my best sites, I think this is an utter waste of time. If I wanted to get drunk and play games, I go to the local pub. I came to Dreamstime to make money.
