Can you please explain how 3 images from the same photographer (reported but no action taken) that have won awards on earlier days have also won awards on April 17th submission in Landscapes....is this an error in displaying awards that were not actually won previously or is this double entering? I note the submitter is one of the top contributors...does this mean rules apply only for some? please explain...

still yet to get a satisfactory answer on what action was taken...if none then I would suggest there is blatant cheating going on and that it could be perceived to be coming from with-in Pixoto itself...I like this site I just want to have a fair chance with my work.. there is a pattern appearing, particularly in my landscape entries, where once my images get a string of wins they suddenly start loosing to all and sundry...often to very poor shots generated from Indonesia ...I am very sceptical of voters from this region...some of their work is brilliant however i feel there is a geographical bias appearing

There have been some incidents of double and triple awards being given out, it was a technical glitch on the site and we are working on correcting the problem. Is this the situation you are describing?

OK I am sorry I misunderstood, I need to know at least the photographer's name if not a URL to the account, in order to check this out.
