We came across a high priority issue today.
We will provide more details later.

We have to postpone Animals until Tuesday. We will still do badge assignment on that following Thursday.

Hello Everyone, 

Here is an update.  We need to get a few things accomplished before we can run the last awards.  We currently have all awards on hold.  Here is the order. I will be providing daily updates on how we are progressing. 

1. We need to revert all challenge duels that occurred 9/28-10/3.  Contest votes are currently disabled.  Currently all award assignment is on hold.
2. We need to restart Contest votes.
3. We need to revert all awards earned during 9/28-10/3. (All daily and 1 weekly)
4. We need to re-assign all awards for this that time period.
5. We need to run all daily awards that have yet to be assigned.
6. We need to run the last annual awards.
7. We need to assign badges.

We do not expect a large delay in getting this done and we plan on getting this done this week.

Hi J-Lo,

The plan was for September awards yesterday and Animals on Thursday, but we need to get September awards out first. We are still getting caught up on votes due to  https://www.pixoto.com/v3/updates/5700038073384960
and it was decided here to postpone a week
https://c.getsatisfaction.com/pixoto/topics/slow-voting-saq5w80jxbi37

On a positive note, we just finished migrating the majority of the site to our new infrastructure 
https://www.pixoto.com/v3/updates/5577381099208704 and as a consequence, Monthly awards will be automated going forward and all of 2019 annuals will go out in March.  

Once we finish this last hurdle we expect things to remain smooth going forward.

Badges anywhere on the horizon?? Just wondered.  Thanks for keeping us up to date, though!

Hear, here, Karen! I share your plea.

Dear Pixoto,

Can you just spare the time and make finishing 2018 a priority??

My vote is that finishing 2018 is considerably more important than continually fixing the issues in rolling out the new Pixoto. I am fine with how things are working now, so please spend some time to assuage our discontented pleas for animals awards and badges.

Anyone else want to vote?

Thank you,
Raphael

Yes, of course. It was a joke. Will the awards on 2018 really really ever show up?

That's funny Brian. Guys, I posted the dates above... Tuesday is the last one. Awards will be automated in 2020. No Brexit award delays in 2020, I promise.

Hello Pixoto :)

The Photog of the Year Banner Badges are the most coveted and eagerly awaited Awards.

May we kindly ask if the 2017 badges will be awarded before 2019?

May Everyone's Holidays Be Happy and Healthy!!!

Raphael :)

Hello Everyone, 

I am pleased to announce that monthly awards have been automated and that 2019 awards will be awarded in Spring with the schedule to be announced prior to Spring Season.

The Pixoto Team has worked hard to completely overhaul the system.  You can expect our commitment to deliver awards on time and to dramatically improve Pixoto in 2020. 

Thank you for your support in getting us here and we look forward to surpassing your expectations.
It has been a difficult road, but we are very pleased to have officially migrating to our new system.

Expect continued release updates announced here: https://www.pixoto.com/v3/updates
