Sorry, I am not sure if I have asked this: what does the creator of a community challenge get? Credits? If so, how many? One per entry? Thanks a mill.

Hello Morrie, when challenge is finished moderator gets one credit for every image submitted.

I hope this helps.

No wonder there are people with 10 -20 challenges clogging up the duelling system Pixoto are paying them thousands of credits to do it !!

We all know the answer to the duelling problem is less or streamlined challenges perhaps the initial answer is to reverse this rather silly decision to pay members to clog up the system ?!!?

Yes, if you won't reduce the number any one can run at any one time, we keep asking, how about giving them a set amount of credits per challenge, something nice and low like about 20?

When there is a "member" who has 22 challenges in the voting stages earning him 14,349 credits at 1 per entry its obvious why they do it, and another case in the open stages another member has 19 challenges with such imaginative thought provoking titles as no2, no4, no5 and no8 who on the current entries will earn 9.505 credits along with a further 1,286 in a voting stage challenge !

Why are we all not inventing challenges i could do a series of 26 on the letters of the alphabet or maybe close ups of wild scat. or any kind of #@+% would match some of the ones in there !

Come on Pixoto why are you letting this pathetic abuse of the system to carry on limit the number of challenges each member can run and have some kind of control over the subject please

I understand the two sides to this issue: incentives to the challenge creators and abuse of some creators. I even saw two same challenges by the same creator side by side. On the other hand, it is not automatic that a challenge will succeed. Banal challenges won't get much interest.

Perhaps, Pixoto can put a ceiling to the number of current challenges per person. This should be more equitable than setting the number of credits to a challenge regardless of the participation to it. Also, the rule of creators being banned from participating in their own challenge should be strictly applied.
That should address many issues, concerns and complaints.

Thank you for suggestions.
Moderators can participate in their challenges only if Pixoto voters decide Judge's award.

My objection to this rule (remember I am a creator and not an administrator) is that seeing the creator's challenge image might give an unfair advantage to the creator by simple memory recall. Cheers.

But what about lowering the credits they can earn or reducing the number of challenges ? its just daft to allow them to create so many just to get thousands of credits !!

Either that or i will start doing it too its dam site easier than spending hours voting for credits, especially as the subject matter seems to be anything you like no mater how daft ?

My tuppence:
I think limiting the number of current challenges for any creator is more fair and equitable to lowering the credits. The latter would make a challenge with 1,000 entries equivalent to one with only 50 entries.
Cheers.

Yes so it might make the creator think about a more interesting title than the points based ones there at the moment !
