I'm wondering how I would go about implementing some kind of image voting system to wordpress. I've had a brief look at plugins but none are particularly great.

I would also like users to be able to upload photos? I'm not great with wordpress so any advice would be great. I'm literally open to anything here.

I was also thinking of adding in buddypress to give some kind of community behind it all.

Any advice welcome at all. More the merrier in fact!

Perhaps WordPress database schema is not so good for an implementation like this one, there's a couple of ways of how to do it.

You could set a rating post type that is actually a reference with attachmed images and some information for people to rate. So, every time a is_user_logged_in user rates any post of this post type, you'll probably want to set the post as rated by this user (so he won't rate it again) on a reference for him in wp_usermeta, and also increase a rating_count on wp_postmeta.

Well, this is just to start.
