2017 Yearly Award Delay

Hi Jasenka, does pixoto use a cut off date for last years, Yearly Awards and does pixoto use the scores from that date to award 2017 awards. It's been a long time to wait and I know there will be a lot of photographers wanting an end to 2017.
We appreciate this site but are troubled by the delay.

Hi Jasenka, it will really be nice if we can get a straight forward answer. What is the reason for the delays on annual awards? Can someone please just answer us on that?

All I can tell is that some categories have already received the awards (B&W, Buildings & Architecture, City, Park and Street, etc). So they are coming to other categories.

The problem is that in previous years they announced a schedule and for the most part kept to it. There is no schedule for 2017, as far as I know. If they are trying to fix a problem, as I said before, then we can understand and accept the delays.

Pixoto please keep your contributors informed.

We enjoy your site.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Yet another question about annual awards.

I came here to ask about when the 2017 annual awards are going to be (finally) given, but as I'm typing I think I really have two different questions: 1. When is Pixoto going to finally admit that there are no awards coming (my hypothesis for a while now) 2. What kind of compensation is going to be offered for paid members who should have won an annual award?

I might have missed it - but has there been a recent update on the 2017 yearly awards? I know I am stating the obvious but we are half way through 2018. I'm beginning to wonder if the system was so broken that it is impossible to calculate the awards at this point? I have been very encouraged by Scott's recent participation and seemingly honest information - I'd really like to hear from him about what is going on with the 2017 awards. When Scott was actively correcting problems, I was tempted to renew my paid membership, but I have decided not to do that until the 2017 awards are addressed. Why would I pay for something that seems to still be broken? Am I the only one wondering about this?

I noticed that I got my annual awards for 2017 for Nature Up Close, but nothing else. Is there a timetable to release the annual rewards for the other categories?

The best of month awards have not been given for February and it is already March 18th.

Then again, the Annual Awards for Animals for 2017 still have not been given and it is already March 18th!

What gives?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Will 2017 Yearly Awards be posted by the end of 2018?.

I don't post on Pixoto anymore, except for an occasional contest that catches my interest, but you understand it's almost June 2018 and still no yearly awards posted for 2017 in Animals and other categories. I've read all the excuses and sincerely sympathize with Jasenka for having to repeat over and over she'll get back to us when she has more information from admin.

It doesn't take a brain surgeon to come to the conclusion that the myriad problems existing on this site are never going to be fixed. Going forward I see more and more talented photographers dropping out of this site, which is a shame and presumably many more to follow. I've been a member since 2011 and still pay for my pro membership, which I haven't used in a couple of years...the curse of being an eternal optimist!

Unless this site is just hanging on by it's toes, due to lack of revenue, I don't understand why they don't hire a true IT specialist to help resolve all these problems and restore the site back to it's glory days, which was truly a great photo site and fun and rewarding in which to be a member.

Hi Scott,

Is't a joke ????

I just received my 2017 yearly awards in the "digital art" category, and what a surprise : I win only 24164 points!

If I check on the yearly result at : https://www.pixoto.com/players-photog...
I found a total of 41615 points and a 5th position....

Where is the truth...
It's begining to be upseting.

Hi Gérard,

I believe the page you are referencing includes all your monthly, weekly and daily wards totals for the year as well.

The 24164 points you are referring to is from the email?

Yes it is.
I think that the result of 2018 has an impact of the result of 2017...
On january the 21th 2018, I was 5th in this category, and now I am 6th...
It's completely creasy.

Hello Gerard, contributor leaderboard for 2017 include all awards your images submitted in 2017 got (daily, weekly, monthly and yearly). Since in January 2018 your (or anybody else) images didn't get yet yearly awards, position on the leaderboard can change when yearly awards are assigned.

Does this mean that January 2018 image awards count for 2017 Awards and don`t count for 2018? Or do they count for both 2017 and 2018?

Hi Renos, awards assigned in January were for images submitted in December 2017, so they count for 2017 contributor leaderboard.

Renos it sounds like that once points for 2017 awards were added to everyone's accounts that someone behind you earned enough points from the yearly awards to pass you. Your 2017 point total includes points earned for daily, weekly, monthly and yearly awards....

No problem, your report helped me identify that you couldn't view more than 25 people per category. I was able to get that fixed and now you can scroll down through all contributors for that category. Thanks for your input! :)
