I think one of the first things we ex Flickrites noticed on moving to Ipernity was that we actually got REAL comments !! Such a refreshing change from Flickr where people who couldn't be bothered to comment just stuck a group award in the comment box. The lack of these on Ipernity was noticeable and welcome as they were, in my opinion, meaningless and valueless.
But I see some ex Flickr Admins are now introducing them on Ipernity. Not many as yet but I don't like the trend. I do NOT want to see them in my comments and will certainly not use them on other peoples' photographs. Let's keep Ipernity's distinctive identity and not try to Flickrise it.
Would be interested to hear what others think.
