What is wrong with the duels? I'm getting images in the duels that are back to back, same images and then after about 10 duels, it starts all over again. Same way? I know I have voted on same duels over 100 times!
Anyone else having this issue?

Yes, I did get even same photo pairs to vote again and again...? Some of those 6 times? And I have to say, like a snapshots...skipping and skipping. Something really fishy is going on!

It makes me not want to even vote in duels. Get so tired of pics over and over.

Same here. My images also duel against the same images more than usual - it is almost the same situation as a few weeks ago. With the leaderboard going haywire quite often lately, the issues with repetitive duels and the duel system going completely down, one has to wonder why Pixoto has some many technical issues recently. Hopefully there will be some remedies in place soon!

Hi all, can you please try again voting for duels? I just now checked about 50 duels and didn't get same images over and over again.

If you are still having same issue, please do let me know.

The bugs in the past few weeks is getting old. Again today, strange duels, almost no duals, same image duels back to back..... this has been off and on for several weeks now. I'd be better with it if Pixoto would just announce (acknowledge) the problems and tell us what is going on and when the issues are resolved

Same thing here. Multiple identical duels, back to back...and then at one point a message appeared thanking me for voting and that they had run out of images to duel and to try voting again later. I love this site, but it has some major issues going on that need to be addressed.

There is also a huge delay in updating one's image score. I've had images that I would enter that would show on the leaderboard in the 300's and then would look at the score of the image on my home page and it was in the mid 600's. Would check the leaderboard and the image still showed it in the 300's. If you want to know where the top images really stand you have to click on every image to see what their real score is. Very frustrating, especially when you are paying for a pro account and seem to be getting very little in return.

I also posted an image this morning, about three hours ago, and so far it has had a grand total of ONE duel.

This was the 5th time I got this in 30 min of dueling. I'd stop, then I would sign out, sign back in and this happened. I am still getting images back to back. Then I'm getting like 10 duels, starts over with same duels.

Another problem: an old inactive category "Nature Up Close: Flowers 2011-2013" is also back in the voting line-up.

The most frustrating thing to me about this is NOT that there is a glitch (it happens), but that it has been ongoing for several weeks and Pixoto has yet to acknowledge or communicate about what is going on. And when the problems have been pointed out in the past, Pixoto staff seems to see it as either new information or that nothing is wrong.

Jasenka does a great job at a very difficult task, and reports glitches to management, and that is really about all she can do. The problem, as you suggest, Kelley, is that we hear nothing from top Pixoto staff, except for an occasional "we're working on it."

A photo site, such as this, with so many members around the globe submitting thousands upon thousands of images per day, should have a top notch computer technician on hand who knows what they are doing and can remedy site malfunctions in a timely fashion. To let problems go for weeks and weeks, or to finally get them fixed just to have them reappear after a week of running smoothly is absurd. The image I posted this morning in now going on four hours with one duel. So thrilled I just paid another $70 plus dollars to renew my pro membership!

I am getting the following error a few times in the last 5mins too:

The image matching system returned the following error:

'Wow! Thanks for logging so many votes! Unfortunately, there are currently no more images for you to vote on. Please try again tomorrow.'

Please notify support with that error.

Thank you all for information. We did multiple releases yesterday so repeating duels could have happened because of this. However, it shouldn't have happened today. I forwarded information to our tech and and as soon as I get reply I'll let you know.
