    I think you misinterpreted my thoughts? Popular members receive more banner votes from the members occasionally, as mentioned earlier and I agree with you that being popular isn’t a factor in the decision process.

    “being popular gets votes however, that in and of itself doesn't guarantee a spot up top though”

    I Check Votes. If something is Getting a lot of attention, I look in and see
    if the Pictures Look Good, The Find is Not something we see every other Day
    And it keeps the Banner looking like a Variety, not specific to certain items.

    Example, As long as I have say there will Never be to Gold Coins, or 2 Silver coins Side by side,

    or even 2 round Gold Items unless Like this

    Like I said Variety. Take Plenty of Pics. Add Different Views, Not just a close up round Object Pic,

    As for Banner Votes, We get Tons of Banner Votes.

    When I glance in 1 Vote means Nothing, No one seems to agree

    Or are Voting Banner on someones Reply instead of On some ones Find
    And they aren't Totaling up.

    Another Issue Calling attention To your own Post And bringing up Banner
    Is Not recommended if You want Banner . The OP Says he doesn't Care so
    I Guess that's why no multiple Votes .

    But if You Find or see something Cool That's not Up there, Vote.
    But don't Advertise you want Votes Then it comes Down to If your
    Popular enough that your Friends here Feel Sorry & Vote for the wrong reason.

    Thank you for correcting me on that..I was thinking it was just member votes.

    I must admit, my finds are my finds. I took the time to learn the hobby over 30 years ago, educate myself on the hobby, learn various detectors, spend gas money getting to my places, hunt in all kinds of inclement weather, research what I have found, display it proudly in one of my 35 display cases, etc. My finds are all Banner to me ! And that's all that matters !
