So when I click on the image duel tool tip where the thumbnails are shown that my image went against, it's my understanding that the the red or green bar under the thumbnails of the competing images shows that the main image either won or lost against these images; for example the main image is displayed then you have four various images representing some of the images dueled against, 3 show red bars, one shows a green bar, the red bars mean that main image LOST to the thumbnail images with the red bars under it and WON or beat the thumbnail image with the green bar? is this correct? if not please explain, the tool tip doesn't explain things very well IMO. Thanks.

You might consider using the term "Won Against" and "Lost Against" under the image dual results.

Hello Holser, if you hover mouse over thumb of image your photo dueled with, you will get also "WON" or "LOST" depending if your image won or lost that image duel.

I hope this helps.

Hi Justin & Pixoto

I also find the labels "winners' and "losers" confusing in the image duel history. I can never remember whether the green bar means my photo was the winner against these pics or the other photo was the winner against me. I find this history page frustrating, and I think the ambiguity of the history page is the weak link in the entire website.

The point of reference you employ on the history page is counter-intuitive and the labels in image duel competition contradict the labels in the image duel history. Basically, on the actual image duel competition we choose the better image, or the winner of each duel, quote: "Pixoto members will choose a winner for each duel". Thus the better image of the duel gets called the "winner". However, when a user opens the image duel history, the actual image that won each duel against the main image shown gets a red bar, meaning that the main image LOST to that duelled image, i.e., this main image lost to these listed images. When you take the point of reference as from the main image in the history page, you attribute the colour red with the images that actually won the duel. This is counter intuitive to the way humans have been globally trained: Green means go (and advance)! Red means stop!

Wouldn't it make more logical sense to switch image duel history labels so green bar means winner of any unique duel between any two photos, and red bar means loser of any unique duel between any two photos??

So then when a user opens either the separate winners or losers tabs for each main photo being scrutinised, all the photos with a green bar would indicate the winners of the duels against the main image, and all the photos with a red bar would indicate the losers of the image duels against this main image.

Simplify and unify your history page and make it comply with common sense, tradition, and the actual image duel competition: Green is a Winner, Red is a loser!

I COMPLETELY agree with Monica! Thanks, Monica, for spelling it all out there, because I am new on Pixoto & found the same problem. Looks like no one listened to you though, because here we are 11 months later, and the same problem exists. Now I understand the answer to my question though, so it is backwards. Should be changed like you said.
