I've just voted 62 times and 30 of those duels was the close up challenge....every second one in fact was the close up challenge.To me this is a bit over the top, I don't particularly want to vote on any challenges, but do so, surely you can spread them out a lot better.

I think the voting is a little wonky lately .... a couple of days ago I voted about 100 or so times at one sitting, and at least 75 of those duels were Animals - Birds. It started to get funny, like I was single-handedly controlling the category. But it shouldn't have happened. Terry, I was voting last night and had a similar experience with the Close-up challenge; I'd say every other duel would be about right.

Lenore - can you tell me your username or email address so that I can check the records and see if there is something strange going on?

yes, it was just mostly the close up challenge, I think I saw a couple of duels for other challenges but that's all.Frankly I am now bored and tired of the close up challenge.

I think it will get worse over the next few days. There is a challenge that has nearly 50,000 votes to be made over a period of 3 days.

Thank you all for the feedback. We are looking into it. I am going to delay that large challenge until we can make sure things are working as intended.

I counted 16 other challenges that fall due between 29/1/2014 and 31/1/2014 and they have a total vote allocation (at this time, expect numbers to increase between now and closing dates) of around a further 50,000 added to the two others making about 126,000 votes.

Something needs to be done ..... for the past little while, I have been voting -- about 150 duels I think. Every other duel was the Mushroom challenge. Literally, every other one. This is really unfair to our regular images.

I have nothing against challenges and have participated in many of them. But this isn't right.

We have identified the issue with challenges and we should be able to prevent the previous problem. Thank you for pointing it out to us. If you are having trouble with voting in general (too many from the same category etc.) please let me know your username or email so that I can look into it.

Thank you,

Morgan
