Change wording on Face Book award posts

When posting awards to an individual's Face Book page do not post "My photo just won" as it sounds like (first person) bragging and is embarrassing. Especially if you have won quite a few in a short period of time. It would be better if Pixoto just used the winner's name by saying something like "John Doe just won the following Pixoto photo competition award."

So Jason, can we hope/expect to see a change in near future related to words in FB posts?

I think I have to agree with this, although it's not a big issue with me. Frequently, my FB friends know about an award I've received before I do, which is just amusing. Also, I don't think anyone on FB sees it as me bragging but it does sound like that, just a little. Thanks!

I agree I would prefer it not to say My photo has just won etc as well.

I totally agree with this. I started out winning a bunch of awards and disabled the FB notification. Since then I haven't won a single award which surprises me as much as the frequency of the rewards I received as a "rising star". In summary, I agree with what Howard wrote entirely but unless I start winning awards again, it doesn't really matter, does it.

That is the reason i stopped having awards posted to Facebook.
A simple "name " was just awarded "place " on Pixoto would be far better in my opinion,
I would also like to be able to only have certain awards posted to Facebook for instance top 10 places and 5% but not lower placed awards?

I also have stopped the notification to FB It would be good if we could choose which ones went through. Personally I would like only monthly awards.

I agree with Ralph on the 'name' and 'place' change. However--and perhaps I'm being alittle Pollyanna-ish about this (which is very unlike me), but an award is an award. If you consider the number of photos posted on this site, to even be in the top 20% of one category within the site is nothing to look down on. Guess I just prefer to be proud of whatever comes along in that regard, but that's just my opinion.

i too agree with Howard..wording need a bit of tweaking..as it is being posted from pixoto side, so the notification should sound like from pixoto side and not from person side..

Please make the announcement sound like it is coming from Pixoto and not from me. It looks like I am bragging, and I am not. I like recognition as much as anyone, but I do not like the way it is worded to look like I am saying it. Thanks. Jack

My announcements to Facebook are currently turned OFF because I don't like the wording. A change would be very welcome!

This post and request is valid, but it's been here so long I believe Pixoto plans to do nothing about it. My friends who know me know better, but in general it sounds like bragging. And it's an easy fix. But...nothing from Pixoto.

This is what is really frustrating about Pixoto! If some suggestions are put forth, Pixoto has got every right to accept or reject it. But it would be highly appreciable if somebody from Pixoto say yes or no to a suggestion!

Here, a suggestion was put forth by a member more than 1 yr ago.. You welcomed the suggestions.. Then there were so many messages supporting it.. But no further responses from Pixoto.. Some says it was made in 2013.. If you say it is not possible due to some technical or policy issues, the matter is closed.

We totally accept that we do not own this site but as regular customers we sincerely hope for a better treatment..
