I saw a photo with a caption yesterday that made me really laugh - now I can't find it. Is there a way to search?
Yes, use the search box at the top of the page
How do I submit a photo for captioning?
Add your photo to the following group on Flickr: www.flickr.com/groups/captioncompetition.
It will then be automatically loaded onto caption.me, and captioneers can vote for it to become the next featured photo on the Next Photo page
I struggle to think of captions because the photos aren't suitable. Is there any way to help improve the selection of photos?
You can help by photo voting to sort the wheat from the chaff. If you're a Flickr user, join the submission group and let me know your user name (mail firstname.lastname@example.org so I can make you a group admin. You can then invite suitable photos into the group.
How are the upvotes/downvotes weighted? It seems strange that a photo which has 3 upvotes and 1 downvote would have lower priority than an image with just 1 upvote. There are many good images low in the list just because of one or two downvotes.
The rank of a caption or photo is calculated as ( votesUp - votesDown ) / squareroot( votesUp + votesDown )
Dividing by the total number of votes ensures that, for instance, a photo with 1 upvote + 2 downvotes should be scored equivalently to a photo with 10 upvotes + 20 downvotes. The squareroot ensures that a photo with more votes is ranked more highly than one with less votes (as the more votes, the more accurate the result).
