This is a good philosophy, but I don't think it will work very well. It would 
take ages to get a meaningful number of votes for most of the images. Also, 
*someone* will find almost every image useful.

Poor quality doesn't seem to be a real problem anyway. However, *repetition* 
is a problem. Four or five variations on an image is fine, but we have much 
more than that in a few cases. The most blatant is shapes/stars, but there 
are others.

In regard to the stars: 1,376? They were obviously created with a script, and 
should be removed. Does anyone disagree?
