I am pretty new to this site, but like so many others I have already felt the frustration of "bad" voting. I suppose this has been suggested before, but here's my suggestion of how to deal with this issue.

When looking at the latest ImageDuels, each member should also be given the option of "reporting" a badly cast vote for any given duel. I know, votes are subjective and people experience art and photography differently, but if the same voter gets a certain number of complaints - say thirty? - from individual users, this would be a pretty strong indication of something fishy going on and one could look into the votes cast by this member or simply take immediate action (say a one week suspension with a warning). If your taste is that bad, there's always flickr.

We all cherish our own photos, and I know that some people actually DO prefer a blurry photo of a running Schaefer to a close up of a roaring lion (forgot to get the url of that one, unfortunately), but some of these duels are outrageously ridiculous and probably the reason so many decent photographers are jumping ship on this site.

Here's a couple of my own examples.
This: http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
Lost to this: http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

I'd say this is pretty bonkers as well, but I guess this one is more debatable:
This: http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...
Lost to this: http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...

Kitch is alive and well, proven by this:

Losing to both this:

And this:

One of my personal favorites:

Was no match for this photo of... fishnets?:

Or this blurry wall:

And lastly, this:

Obviously doesn't stand a chance against stellar stuff like this:

Sorry for all the toes I have probably stepped on at this point, but seriously. Come on people.

Thanks for the suggestion. I know some time has passed, but I wanted to let you know we will be rolling this out soon.
