I notice since a few time a significant number of ' contest ' which are, at the same time, created, moderated and JUGED by the same person.
I think that this is in total disagreement with the philosophy of PIXOTO which consists in making the maximum of people participate at the time of judgments. It is in particular the case during the duels.
And furthermore it opens the door to all the excesses, favoritism, chummy relationship, cheating, etc....

I think that PIXOTO should intervene to forbid this kind of practice. In any case, and as many of other one, I decided to boycott these contest.

Thanks for your attention.

Hello Gerard, since the start of contests, users were able to create (and moderate) and select Judge's award for their contest if they like to. If the moderator will select Judge's award he/she can't participate in the contest.

So, other places (top 2-10, 5%, 10%, 20%) are selected by users (through voting) while only Judge's award (#1 place) can be selected by the moderator (if he/she chooses to do so).

I hope this helps.

Hi Jasenka,
Thank you for this cordial answer, and instructive. It is more pleasant all the same than certain answer on the verge of the politeness.
