it is used as a source of admiration of your friends
it's always good to see something original from your friends
original content proves that your friend put some thoughts into the game thus it's important to h(er|im)
secondary content shows lack of interest to the game
when it's done in a really potoroked way it's cool
it's discouraging to see low-quality shit from your friends
it's hard to come up with objective criteria of a content quality
there are some criteria that can be used:
- photo is clearly visible, not dark, not overburned, etc
- composition is ok, no cut-off's, there is space around the main object(s)
- any other common-sense criteria for visual appealing image (?)
they can be skipped in favour of potorokness
it's better when they are not (most likely it's possible to combine visual appealness with potorokness which makes it twice as potoroked)
This changes "good" to "fitting a definition", which still may not address original purpose of a friend to be satisfied with the photo.
it's hard to come up with something like that since it could be part of the idea (to overburn the photo or to decompose a composition). I'd say quality of the idea is much more important than photo-skills.
low quality means that it was done in a hurry w/o putting much effort i.e. the time for the taking a potorok was not planned, thus it's highly unlikely that it's important for the friend
Another explanation could be that a player just sucks and despite planning and importance he shows poor results. A better criteria should be defined e.g. "was a player capable in the past and quality went down recently?" That would be a better sign of lost interest.
you don't need to fix things in the house :-P
potoroked and "looking okay" could be just "good enough"
no one wants to put more into something than he/she takes back (in long-term)
Potorok may give more in other forms besides good looking photos.
when you actually try hard (like tucha did, for example) and see that someone else is not trying hard, you stop trying hard and - ultimately - skip the game
it makes other players better
There are other ways to make players better as well.
but not always. I can think of case when too great photo posted can discourage others from participation. Take recent example when Tanaha said "I won't post, since my ideas are worse than ones already posted"
original & good looking content shows other players other perspectives or views of the round subject effectively broadening their mindsets
Just "original" does the same.
