Voting Software, again

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Matt Silberstein, Jul 8, 2004.

  1. I had posted asking if anyone knew of "voting" software. Since I got
    no response I will guess that either I described it poorly or no such
    product exists. I am going to explain it again and see if either such
    a program exists or others think it would be useful.

    There are several of us in our household. When we go traveling we all
    take pictures. What I want is a program that would allow multiple
    people to "vote" on whether a picture should get printed. As I see it
    the votes could range from "veto" to "recommend against" to "neutral"
    to "go ahead" to "I demand this get printed". Ideally if this were a
    commercial product it would have multiple voting systems and could
    allow people to view the pictures based on score or display just the
    conflict items or ...

    I hope that gives the idea. So, does such a program exist? If not,
    would anyone else have a desire for that kind of product?

    Hi Matt,

    I spent the last 4 years of my life learning several
    scripting/programming languages and one of the most important things I
    learnt eventually is that if there is a simpler way to do something
    then that is usually the better one. By this I mean it's often far
    easier and more productive to do something with pen and paper, or a
    simple spreadsheet, than to make a custom software for it. This is
    actually one of the key points of the "extreme programming" method.

    If you don't find such software, See if you can do it with pen and
    paper, or see if you can do it with a generic software like a
    spreadsheet or a simple database.

    If you must do it, consider PHP/SQL and will be of some help.

  3. I agree with the general principle. Sure, I could do it with paper.
    But I actually felt like programming and wanted to fill a niche if it
    was not filled. Also, we have a space problem in our tiny NYC apt, so
    anything that does not make paper is a good thing. (Yes, a spreadsheet
    would work, but there are other personal issues there.)
    I was going to use Perl rather than PHP. Just a taste issue. And make
    it local rather than server based. But thanks.
