I quote jpgmag FAQ:
When a photo is submitted to a photo challenge or theme, the photos that the community likes best become "Hot." Hotness is determined automatically by factors including number of votes, comments, views, and favorites. A photo's hotness is not permanent, but can change based on how the community is responding to other photos in the theme, and we recalculate hotness daily. That's why even if nothing changes on your individual photo, its hotness could change based on the popularity of other photos within the theme.
On the JPG homepage and the first page of any particular theme, we also show a selection of the hot photos in order to highlight the best photos from the site. The photos that display on these pages are pulled at random from the hot photos that we have selected to display. Hot photos also have a banner that links to more hot photos within the theme, along with tools that make it easier for other people to promote your photo on sites like Digg, Facebook, and StumbleUpon.

you will get votes by voting first on the ones you like. the forum is like a hey I like your pics and then they say hey I like yours too ! it's a great way to see the world through many eyes, but you will only get out of it what you put into it. a lot of people come and go but a lot are old timers who drift in and out depending on their busy personal lives. newbies are always eager to compete and get upset when people don't follow the rules or guidelines..but it's not really monitored, it's community reported (there's a report button)....but it's fun and great way to get good yet sometimes critical reviews not to mention historical info on photography, techniques, tips and tricks. there are many levels of photographers as well as personality types ! mr. linton is the person who puts in the most time here and his payback gives him the "hottest" photog in the place because of it. he's known as the sleevehead king of self portraits ~ you will see a lot of people take on a persona. I have see seen groups form and break apart and reform again. it's a community and I have enjoyed it off and on for a while now. one day I'll be as hot as mr. linton.
