    Hi. Is there any way to turn off the Recommended photographer feature on my Following/Homepage? I'm pretty clear on how I select what photographers I want appearing on my homepage and identifying photographers to follow, and I'd rather not be prompted by 500px's algorithm and having additional images/photographers I'm not that interested in on there. To be honest, I visit Discover/Popular most days, and the Recommended images tend to be the same images from the upper tiers there being recycled, and it's starting to get a little visually boring. Thanks very much for your feedback & cheers.
