Bill do you spend much time on Facebook? I am thinking of all the people there that vote on random things with out getting anything out of it but a way to pass the time. I know several of my friends on Facebook have joined Pixoto since my awards started posting to the site. I don't think they have submitted any photos either. Just a thought.

Bill I have been noticing that a lot of my new likes... are from that one particular country...and often it is a person that might only have one or two photos posted... I had already been wondering about that.. then saw your posting... something different but still some similarities...

I am not sure what a motive would be.. other than stealing photos... or jamming up pixoto with friends/relatives etc so they will do voting and vote for their photos?...

doesnt seem likely.. but yet who knows....

I'm new here,reading these forms to get an understanding of how this site functions, so from a relatively outside viewpoint; Isn't the voting duel a hook to get people to visit the site and ultimately buy/download images?

It appears this community is more complex than first meets the eye; photographers looking for an audience to sell images to; amateurs looking for recognition on their development as photographers (feedback, awards, encouragement), and browsers who just have fun with the image duel feature, and some (like me) who fit all three.

I'm thinking the more members who are not posting their own images means more potential buyers, especially if they are following me; they can easily find my new stuff when I post it rather then hoping they find one in a dual as it flashes by.

Ok I have to admit though I'm as confused as Bill is as to why they would have followers ...
