    Yes, that is completely frustrating. However complex their algorithm is, it still doesn't justify why they don't leave the high scoring images alone. They obviously enjoy taking away your achievement and there is no reason for that. If they insist on keeping the high scoring images in the duels, then opposing them should only affect the challenger's score, not the winning picture. But that would be too complicated for Pixoto to understand.
    I'm feeling the same way, Christine...it seems to me that the situation is getting worse every day. I have images over 600 when I go to bed and they are back at 580 when I wake up next morning. And then I resubmit them and they go to 700. What conclusion can you draw from this? Bad image? Good image? Certainly not a good technique for getting a trustworthy feedback about the quality of your work.

    Last week i was really happy with my first image reaching 700+ score

    It was Day 1 Image
    It was Week 2 Image
    It was going to be this Month 7th Image.

    But suddenly it had 10 duels and lost all of them and its score is now 678+ disappointing .

    I know what is the fault in your algorithm :

    In the beginning of the image image scores more points with each win and lose less points with Lost and when it cross 60+ image duals it gets less points with WIN and loses more points with LOST.

    Here is the error in the algorithm because in the beginning images are compared with low quality images with less image score , so the rate of scoring can be less

    But as the goes the our images are compared with best images so the images scores should get more points but here it happens in reverse.

    Thats why we looks image scores for best images. they do it wantedly.

  • Hello Christine, sometimes image will overshoot its final position on leaderboard and in such cases with dueling its score will decrease (by losing duels) and it will settle in correct position on leaderboard.

    I hope this helps.

    • Common problem... And since no one EVER bothers to check the categories, it is never taken care of unless someone comes here to complain about it. The Cats category has quite a number of wild felines in there - Not even going to bother complaining, as I know it won't get fixed and its a waste of my time.
    • The only time I ever submitted a wild feline to Animals-Cats (from ignorance - I was new) it got changed within an hour.

    Yes - and sometimes your high scoring image loses three times in a row - to images that are in the wrong category, completely out of focus and generally rubbish - because as we've been told over and over "people are possibly voting on phones"

    Thanks everyone, but I think it's time for me to move on, this is just not what I thought it was going to be. Good luck to all of you with your images! Rock it! :)

    Another wrong category image 50 percent voted each way lol

    never mind the watermarks, i voted this am and just about every third image had them on there- why not have your report team be pro active instead of reactive bc frankly I don't want to report images it isn't right to ask people do what you guys should easily do.

    bottom line- voting on this site sucks. regardless of what you try to tell yourselves. I'm not drinking the cool aid.

    • Thank you for suggestion Susan.
    • Hi, when it comes to voting and I see a pic in the wrong category, I just skip this duel. Also, I myself discovered one of my pics in the wrong category and I commented on that, and it was disqualified. I was assured this has no "bad" impact on my pics etc.

    As your images near the top, you are dueling against better photographs, just as they go up in the bottom quickly, they can go down at the top quickly, I see that as part of the game. It's a competition and if you are able to stop the dueling at any time it doesn't accurately reflect your score in relation to all the players (even the good ones). Having had this done to my photographs- I get how frustrating it is, but competition in here is tough, lots of good photographers.

    Nothing, or no one, stays on top of the game forever in life. This is what Pixoto awards are for. A football team may have won the Super Bowl last year but if they lose a bunch of games this year, they will no longer be on top. However, they will always have their Lombardi trophy, and they will always have their Championship rings no matter how low they fall statistically. And if you earn awards for your images you will always have them...better images will always appear, so enjoy your awards!

    I don't think I'm important enough to be singled out by Pixoto for special treatment. It's natural to be disappointed when an image score drops, but I've seen them rise and fall and rise and fall etc. It's also natural to be frustrated by what we see as inconsistencies but in my experience I see a lot more consistency than not. I don't like some of the rules here. I'm not fond of the images that look like paintings being entered in photography categories - but those are the rules and I can alwaya delete my Pixoto bookmark if it significantly interferes with my happiness.
