A tougher stance on repeated duplicate images

As a suggestion for those repeat submitters of duplicates...
yes, we know some people do it occasionally by accident- and they get a warning -but after say 2 or 3 incidents, what if, instead of just deleting the "newer" image, that BOTH would be deleted. That would make people think more seriously about duplicating their winning images just for more points.
The times it happens "accidentally" are rare. I caught a duplicate in my own account (although within the first hour of submitting) but the reason I missed it ws because it was a lower ranked image buried in the middle of my profile in the 400s somewhere...and the newer one was B&W and I'd saved it with "_bw" so it had a different file name. Still, because it was an image on my hard drive from months ago, I did a quick scroll through and found my own duplication. However, I don't think I would be able to "accidentally" not notice when I duplicated one of my highest ranked images that is sitting on top of my profile -especially when the "older" one is only days or maybe weeks old- not months or years.

I completely agree with you and have asked several times for repetative duplicators to be "punished" more then just deleting the newer duplicates.

As a result of such tougher stance we all want, we will all spend less time doing usless things: we on reporting and you on acting upon reports :)

I am not sure if I let you all know that the recent mass offender was suspended. I talked to Jason about this and we are going to start suspending user accounts that are egregious offenders.

I don't want to just jump on suspending people for 2-3 issues with similar images or duplicates. Due to language barriers and misunderstandings with the rules, I prefer to give people a chance to get a good understanding of how Pixoto works and what the rules are, That being said, if it seems like we are spending a lot of time looking at the same accounts we will be suspending them, they will have to respond and let us know they understand the rules and that they will stop breaking them.
