Should I have received an award/badge for my image in the Landscape/Nature category? It's ranked #6 right now w/ an image score of 643 this morning - and thought awards were given weekly (on Wed PM) for top rated images each week. Not sure if my portrait made top20% or not... but they were all submitted last Wednesday, so thought something might qualify... just curious... I'm still trying to understand how the awards/badges/points work for 'players'... any insight would be appreciated...

Hi Ryan,

We have not assigned awards for last week yet. I apologize for the delay, but we found some issues on the site that were resulting in several users have way too much influence on the rankings. As we are in Beta, these are issues that are to be expected while we fine tune our algorithms and logic.

Here is a high level explanation of awards/badges/points:

Awards are assigned for the top 20% of images in each category. 1 - 10 are assigned a rank and the rest are given Top 5%, 10% and 20% awards depending on a variety of factors. Award badges are assigned to the image and Player. The Player receives points based on their images that have won awards. The number of points assigned is calculated based on a formula that values a win in a more competitive category more than a win in a less competitive category. We determine competitiveness based on the number of images submitted.

Hopefully that helps!

do you have an estimate of when awards will be given because last week will still be getting dueled and points will move photos down or up in the meantime
