The GrandMasterPixel rankings are supposed to give a view of the greatest pics that players have sent into battle. This also includes subcategories such as “three colour” pics and “black and white” pics, so you can see how people have made the best use of a limited palette.
Unfortunately, it’s been hard for new pics to get to the top of the rankings. This is probably because of the changes to scoring a while back, and what I would call an ‘early adopter advantage’. As a result the rankings really haven’t moved much over the last year or so … until now.
Today, I’m shaking things up just a little. The front “Rankings” page will now show only pics submitted within the last year – as a result there should be more movement as dominant pics get old and younger successful pics get a shot at glory. The best pics of all time will still be shown under the ‘all time’ rankings. There are also now “Most successful dead pics of all time” and “Most successful living pics of all time” so you can see the best of the best that are still battling it out, even after a year.
So, don’t be shocked if next time you check out the rankings Mr. T is no longer on the front page. He’s had a good run .. it’s time for him to step aside and let the younger pics steal the limelight.
