For Pixoto staff...will you be posting a schedule for releasing "Best of 2012" photo selections, as you did last year, as well as awarding best category togs for the past year?

I understand, Shirley. Seems to be some trouble in paradise here, but I rarely get a response from questions I pose. They just seem to slide by and be ignored. Must be an English thing. Don't think this was really a difficult question to answer. Know they are busy, hopefully trying to work out the point discrepancy, but c'mon..you want to be a major factor in the photo site relevancy, you need to step up to the plate, maybe increase the staff, make people feel like they may be important and appreciated for their contributions...just sayin'

but I need to add... probably when they start this site , they were sure how response will be lower that is actually and now when they got a big respones from totally unknown authors world wide dislocated, they can not handle with it... I saw great photos from for example young African photographers, which hard pass 400 points... thats show to me ... here is something a bit wrong.... in same time midium quolity photos from authors based, shall I say in " developed west" or surpriselly far away east are HIGH ranked.. indonesia, india, malasija... many people got many points... thats show to me that actually system das nnot work well. we can imagine situation that is easy to manipulate voting... photographer upload photo, in same time 50 " friends2 voting and in math way is posiblle that his photo goes UP..... it is easy to see if you compare quolity of " winning" " amazing" " greatest" .....this is my private opinnion, based at long research and long contribution with more than 1050 photography works.... it is pitty, some people will feel bad and sad if they uplaod their good, honest photo works and they got 400 ponits..and probably they will stop contribute...to all which " lose " a lot i can say.. dont be sad, rules arent fair enough. best regards to all

Yes Trey, I hate being a "squeaky wheel" but I think this is an important issue. We need to believe that our scores and points are accurate, otherwise all credibility is lost. Pixoto has definitely had some growing pains, it would be nice to see the serious problems addressed before trying to get the stock photo business running.

Vesna, there will always be cheaters. It would take a full time staff to keep ahead of them. It is sad to see obviously poor quality photography winning high scores while high quality can barely make it in some instances, as the one you refer to. It does discourage the high quality photographers from continuing :(
