Same thing happened many times to my images. It does not seem to logical.

There might be one technological exception. Eventual pairing of the same two images in a duel offered to several voters at a time, to spare computer processing time and resources.

Pairing again the same photo several times against different voters decreases the effect of bias from few of the voters. Hence, you get a more reliable answer as to which of these two particular photos is better -- think for a moment that you show the same two photos to the whole world and they vote for the better one. The effects of biasing will disappear (or cancel out).

Playing images against other images multiple times with different voters is an important element of the algorithm. For more established images this ends up looking like repeats in a row. But if you look at the image that it is playing against (usually the new image) you'll notice that the duels are rarely repeats.

I understand playing images against each other multiple times, that gives the option for different viewers to vote on them. However, I had the same image come up in the duel window 3 times out of 5 duels. Does that mean it was a duplicate image? Doesn't seem fair that one person would vote on the same image 3 times in such a short span.

Yea - that's got to be somebody putting duplication images. If this happens again you can report the 2nd or 3rd one and we'll take a look.

What i found out that some images are getting morethan 5 times dueling chance in 24 hours
for example this image http://www.pixoto.com/images-photography/commercial-and-journalism/photojournalism/battered-wooden-terompah-22439326
After i uploaded it it got duel with mines http://www.pixoto.com/images-photography/commercial-and-journalism/photojournalism/22670574 a number of times instantly.

I think this may occur some other user intentionally give duel boost in "group" to their own image.

Images start out getting a lot of duels and then slow down once they have reach a critical mass. So getting 20 or 50 or even 100 duels in the first 24 hours is not unusual.
