New award system!

Many members have asked for changes in the award system. We have after much consideration revamped the system and can now present the result. We have tried to make the new system more simplified and easier to understand. Here are the most important changes:

More points for commenting
1x is a community with unusually knowledgeable members and the level of discussion and commenting is generally very high. To encourage commenting, you will now receive 5 award points for each comment. This is a massive increase from the previous system and we hope that it will lead to more insightful comments from 1x photographers.

No need to update
Many members have asked for a system that automatically updates the individual award score. The award score will now be automatcially updated each day. 

Upload in HD for extra points
You will now receive more points for uploading your photo in HD and marking it for sale as fine art prints. Besides the extra points you will also have the chance to earn a substantial amount of money on your photography.
