Hmmm... it just sorta hit me. How would MP survive the scenario in which people will start abusing its "free portfolio space no review system" for uploading and keeping their images their for free - personal gallery sort of thing, vacations, grandma's birthday, out of focus pictures of your gerbil, you get hte picture?  I am sure this kind of abuse is bound to happen... are there any mechanisms in place to prevent and to contain it?

- Monitoring against this? Well, then you need reviewers and criteria for evaluating one's work as 'playing the system' (uploading hundreds of shots of your family dinner...) v. not

- Letting it be... which would sink the ship very fast because buyers won't sort through all the bad work

- Relying on the review system which many people are already disliking and that still won't prevent the "pollution" of the pool of images on MS...

Your thoughs boys and girls?

The voting system seem to work reasonably well.  I don't know why people would upload their personnel gallery there, would you?  There are other sites to do that.

I think more of a problem could be that people will upload tons of junk, thinking other will buy it. At this stage the quality of photos on Mostphotos are amazingly high, considering there are now selection criteria except size.

I meant to type "no" and not "now" - no way to edit your own post here?

Well... it's sorta like a free personal photography website with unlimited gallery space... come on, dont' you think that people'd try to abuse it? :) Free, unlimited...  to say nothing about possibilities for people to upload unsavory content... of course we all know that it's 'prohibited' by TOS - but huh! It's human nature to abuse the system. As MS grows in popularity and competitiveness... I'd hate to be the one saying "i told you so" ; )

sooner or later MP will have to impose some sort of criteria, may be some sort of portfolio review...

People abuse in SP and it's a storage subscription site.  Wait until they learn about a free unlimited storage one...

is that 'part of the point' of the site perhaps though?  they even have a link to download all of the photos you have uploaded to the site.... makes for a great 'backup' storage for photos as well... sort of like flikr except with the possibility of sales.
