If in a challenge "Judge's Award will be chosen by:" say, Mr: Moderator will he

only choose #1. which will be then "Judge`s Award"?

Or can he judge over all images and give all images the rankings he likes?

The rules say: "You decide on the "Judge's Award" (the top award)" does "top Award" mean only for #1. ?

I want to have this cleared before i make a mistake!

Renos, in all contest that I have done and (if I choose to pick) the #1 which was the (judge's award) was issued. I had nothing else to do with any other choices. That only allowed me to choose just one, and nothing else. Will not let us, me or you have anything else to do with choices of winners.

Just trying to help out. You know I don't work here.

Thank you very much for your help Terry.
Then i don`t understand how and why this moderator in "Animal Family" contest:

http://www.pixoto.com/contests/animal...

could do what the system want let you! He could choose much more than one image.
As you can see on screenshot 4 votes before deadline Moderator changed lots of images and not only #1. judges Award.



Maybe Jasenka can clarify!

He can pick only one image for Judges Awards. He can't manipulate all the entries.

Hi Renos, the moderator can only choose one image which will be than #1 image (which is Judge's award).

Moderator can't change any other image (not more than any other user by voting in image duels).

Can you please let me know why do you think moderator influenced in any way on images in his contest?

Well Jasenka, very short before contest deadline, there were still only four (4) votes open the ranking was as you can see on screenshot.

How can it be if Moderator can change only one image, #1 "Judge`s Award", that the ranking short after deadline is so different?

If i understoond you Jasenka, then only one image (#1) can change ranking and all other images after #1 should keep there rankings! Thats not the case.

You only have to compare the first few images from screenshot whith anounced winners! And there are much more images affected, that are not visible on screenshot!

Renos, only you would think of taking a screen shot when a contest is close to being finished. It seems that you caught a major glitch, at least for this contest. Is this the only time that you have taken a screen shot? If not, have you ever noticed anything like this with other contests? It does seem like something was not right with this one.

This phenomenon attracted my attention a few times in the past Judy!
I always thought it was my imagination. Thats why, this time, i made a screen shot and also not to have a problem of credibility!
I hope Jasenka gets soon a reply!

Hi Renos, I'm sorry we had some issues with accolades we are working on, and this will be checked as soon as accolades are finalized.
