So in short, the user goes through 10 of these pair-wise comparisons and the network then navigates them to the profiles of the artists they chose, everyone benefiting positively. And after they choose to follow those artists or not, they may continue playing with the comparisons, each time after 10 rounds, suggesting artists to follow.
    But then why have the head-to-head comparisons at all? What if you like both of a pair, or neither? Or if you like the "worse" of one pair better than the "better" of another? If you're just going to have people follow the artists they like, why not show the images individually, or in a large group, and let them pick yes or no for each one? I can see if there was some sort of sophisticated recommendation algorithm, like Netflix's, it could be useful, but what you're describing is really primitive.

    Although, as I wrote above, that model is actually more useful.

    Most people already know what they like. When people like something they become very good at getting it. What the site would need to do is find a way to be useful. I would love for there to be a one stop social media nexus for artists that interfaced with facebook, tumblr, linkedin, and so on. It is very inconvenient to have to update everything separately. It could be useful if it could handel all of the major things that artists needs for building their individual brands.

    With Elwell's idea of it being useful somehow, I'm reminded of the giant thread where someone was trying to develop a "rating system" which would rate a piece on various fundamental principles of 2D art...then spit out a number. It was hotly debated but you may find some kernels of thought in there that might be of value. And no, I have no idea what the thread was now.

    But tbh...what I would want to see in something like you're proposing is a site that went out and destroyed 9/10ths of the other social art sites....there are just way too many as it is.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    This.

    Also - potential gold mine for Art Thieves IMO. I know there's ways around it, hence "POTENTIAL"..

    If you follow, the web app would suggest artists who the user clicked in the voting to follow, after every 10 rounds of image pairs. It seems that this would be useful to an artist/designer to at least try because it drives fresh eyes to your work if they click your images. Or perhaps not? I guess that is my main question, is it worthwhile to you? There is a notion of, more followers, more exposure to the world, larger art/design presence in the world, or as mentioned before perhaps designers wouldn't like this? Very interesting to discuss. : O

    Very interesting, Thank you guys this feedback is really fab! You all have helped me alot

    If you would like to comment and see the progress on a system we are working on that connects artists and creative users together by image preferences: http://www.digicrits.com

    Here is our video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xp5lQ...layer_embedded briefly showing our testing versions of the product, your input is so important if you think we should make changes : D

    Thanks again,

    "Connects artists and creative users together by image preferences" - I get the idea, but CA.org already allows users to link to Sketchbooks in our signatures, as well as subscribe to them, and choose what kind of notifications we want when folks reply to the same topics we've posted in. Point being CA.org already has a great reputation (one that I hope stays), great artists, and many folks who are willing to give advice to those honestly seeking it.

    The images you used as an example of what art would go head to head were completely different styles.
    I don't think the idea is a good one at all, a lot of the people using sites are fairly new to drawing/painting and learning, it's my opinion that the site would possibly make some people turn away from art because they have been rated badly.
    Personally I don't care how popular my paintings are online, I always have commissions to do and it is more important to me that those who have asked me to paint for them are happy with the end result.
    Oh and in case your wondering I've had trouble making a gallery on here that's why I don't have one. I do have one on da but rarely use that site.
    This site is my fave one I like to read the forums and look at peoples artwork.

    Anyway good luck with your site if you make it but I won't be joining it.

    Would it be more preferable to you the users if the main function of the site was for you to have just your portfolio rated (1 v 1) by just your friends who you invite/choose to follow?

    Or perhaps you have 2 versions of a work that you want opinions on & you can have your chosen followers rate it for you (This way you know who is rating it)

    -User Profiles
    -Individual ratings
    -Privacy of having just your friends/followers rate your works
