I had to say it.

You add "Be Creative" on your challenge descriptions. Perhaps creativity could extend to new challenges that haven't been done before. A challenge that allows any photograph to be submitted results in the same group of images from the same users being entered over and over. We've all seen them. Whether it's your intention or not, the belief among people on the help and community forum is that challenges like this are being done for nothing more than the collection of credits by the moderators. You should see some of the discussions there.

Thanks for the entries gentlemen. Hopefully all the other people entering are understanding the message and not just hoping to win an award!

Based on a couple of the comments from my new challenge so far, its clear that some people don't even understand that this is a problem. That's why Pixoto needs to address it from the top. This issue cannot be policed by the site users. The challenges are set up to be abused. As my mom used to say: "This is why we can't have nice things".

Since this has all started I haven't entered any challenges I have won several but somehow those awards have diminished credablitly in my eyes and i won't enter any until this is cleared up. I also haven't voted much and I am sure many are doing the same and this is not out of anger or on spite its that this has taken the enthusiasm out participating.

This is really sad because like others I was addicted now I spend all my time here commenting on posts hoping it will be fixed. As I was always told all good things come to an end. Hope it's not true here

You are absolutely right about the enthusiasm Augie. Mine's gone as well. I tried to submit a black and white image yesterday as a try-out. It barely got in the top 20% of the day today, having received only 35 duels. I hope this challenge debacle is sorted out soon.

Currently 186 open community challenges. It's easier for people to create challenges than it is to vote.

we now have another member taking advantage of a poor system with 27 open challenges.

Its only going to get worse. As users there is only so much we can do to address the problem ourselves. I fear that most users don't even get that its an issue. Pixoto will have to fix this with a more stringent system for challenges.
