Are daily awards broken? I had 3 images from yesterday that when the new day started where in the top 2-10%, one that was #6 over all in ALL of animals and yet today, nearly 24 hours later there are no awards. No email, and nothing on those images... is something broken? I noticed this started two days ago after the 'beta' went away and the site got a refresh. Which is nice by the way.

Ok, so the awards came in finally, but now it's created more questions. I was watching very closely as I've been curious about it for some time now. I had one image that was ranked 6th over all in animals right at the change. I was filtered on 'Today's' images and watching it. When the count dropped from 180+ images down to 1, I knew the new day had started. I then changed my filter to 'yesterday', cleared my internet cache and reloaded the page, my image was ranked at #6 for the day. Ok cool. I then did the math on where my other two images in that same category were. ALL were in the top 10% or higher. Yet today when the email comes out, it says that one is ranked #9, one is in the top 10% and one in the top 20%. I'm confused... how does that work? Does the system wait and do the calculations later on when the numbers have changed? Is there something else built in? Are pro accounts weighted slightly higher? *confused*

Awards for the current day are given at 3pm the next afternoon (or 2pm depending on daylight savings time). The reason for this is that images that came in at right before midnight GMT need to have enough time to be voted on before the daily awards are determined. You can see all the award schedules at www.pixoto.com/contest
