Still can't access the button to get more votes - getting very frustrated now that my images have only had 4 or 5 duals, won 50% or more, but not getting put into more duals. What's happened?

I seem to have the same issues, kind of. I cannot find where I can buy more votes for others. Can you tell me where to look for a button or something? Thanks.

you look for the image you want to buy more votes and you will see a grey arrow on left bottom side. Click on it to buy more votes

I don't have the button at all at the left bottom. That is why I am puzzled. Let me make sure that I am looking at the right place. I go to the duels or just the picture from the gallery, either way, I don't see it.

Ok, I think I found the button on the image page only under recent. Is it how it suppose to be? I cannot see it under leading. Please tell me, anyone?

Michelle, am i supposed to click on other images or mine? How do you check and see if mine is in the duels? What can I do about it if it is paused? I think that others bought votes for me and cause it to pause. By all means, buy votes is not going to do anyone any good if they would take it out from the duels.

you click on the image you want to buy votes. It can be one of yours or one of somebody else if you want to buy votes for another player. You can only buy votes for an image that is paused (the ones with a grey arrow on the bottom are paused). If you don't see a grey arrow, it means that this image is still in the duels. So it is impossible that buying votes will take the image out from the duels. I hope this helps you

Now, I see that there are only certain ones that I can buy votes under recent image. Is that how it works???

Priscilla, the recent entries (or ones that have been unpaused) are usually the only ones that pause frequently as the leader images have high enough scores not to pause. Look on your images page and click the recent tab and you should see if any of your images are paused or not.

So, Wayne. When it has a little triangle, that means I can buy more votes. By buying more votes, does that help others or it will make it pause. Still confused!

Priscilla, buying more votes, whether for your own images or others, puts them back into the image duels. They start getting dueled with other images at that time, (maybe 3 or 4 times) and either stay unpaused or get paused again, depending on how the algorithms deem their worthiness. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. However, if an image is not doing well in the duels, continuing to unpause them, seems to have a detrimental effect on them...like the program reads desperation into our actions. I'm not smart enough to explain this but something I have noticed.
Bottom line, they can't get votes unless they're dueled and you get them back in by clicking the arrow (or triangle).

Glad I could help but sometimes I talk too much.
