Plus keywords seem ok to me!

Strange!

this happened to me today, the flagged keyword is absolutely appropriate.
that thread on DT doesn't really deal with this situation, someone who joined today has flagged me?
should I feel special? :) I'm not longer so small I get ignored? :) brilliant. (I am though, only 200 images)

I was searching through the DT database to see if there were images like mine already (xmas balls on the beach). There are plenty of images that have nothing to do with the beach, but include that keyword. Do you flag that? or is there a backlash that people feel compelled to start new IDs to hide behind when flagging?

If other users flag images with appropriate keywords then you sure can flag images with keywords that have nothing to do with the image.

I would strongly hope that DT is making some effort to weed out such people by matching up IP addresses etc.

I guess it seems petty to do it, there are certainly times when I cut n paste keywords over only to have generic things like "horizontal" or "nobody" or "blue" in the wrong spot. If I was a buyer I reckon I'd do it all the time though.

this person is dodgy though, joins today and then starts flagging keywords? clearly not a newbie, so I suspect his intentions are dishonourable.

I don't understand why people worry about this.  If a flag isn't justified nothing will happen so what's the problem? I get flagged regularly mostly by buyers and it is nearly always using the main keywords of the image so obviously done in error.

Yes, and again, the report image button is right next to the add to lightbox button. No big deal, all flags are reviewed and if it is an error it will not affect anything.

I have, on occasion, dropped a polite email back asking what the flagger perceives the problem to be. I am usually glad I chose to be polite, as the response is usually from a buyer who says they were attempting to DL the image and clicked on a wrong button.

Exactly I have heard of people writing rude replies without knowing if it is a buyer who could take offense and not buy their images again.

Had the same thing today by someone who joined nov 5. The keywords flagged were so obvious to what's in the image that it is most likely a new buyer, but I could be wrong. Who would act so stupidly as to join just flag appropriate keywords? In these instances I thing DT admins would want to shut down that waste....but I could be wrong.  I used to get mad but I just let it go now.  I have learned to be pretty hard on myself on key wording and don't worry any longer.

I get those occasionally. 95% of the time they are wrong and I ignore them. I hope I never have enough free time to waste it looking at other people's keywords
