I get that the algorithm needs to take into account what images (and how they were scored) the duel (or is it dual?) is against. It drive me crazy to see my images in "Abandoned Buildings" go up against bridges and suspended thingies. After all, my run down house is never going to look good against an image of Tower Bridge.

Shouldn't I du*l against similar images. I feel bad for all those cat pictures that are put up against llamas.

Note: This topic was created from a reply on the IMAGE SCORE proof of issue: (49 duals: 30/19= 558 ) (49 duals: 30/19= 632 ) (4... topic.

Hello Joel, since awards are assigned on category level, not subcategory, photos need to duel with all photos in all subcategories within one category.

I hope this helps.

The truth of it is Joel.....With such competition.......its never gonna be that fair. Art & Photography is subjective.

Theres countless images on this site with silly scores...Some have high scores & their rubbish photos. Photos that are superb....but have a score of 550.

What can you do?....Little unfortunatly bud.

Image scores....are affected ten fold by the first few votes, Post your image at 5 different times of the day....i guarantee you this.,...you will get a different score everytime. Its a lottery mate.

Ive countless images that have been frozen, i reposted them...now alot are on 600/650 even above 700.

Heres an example......The link below was one of my last posts. It was frozen after 20 mins.....8 wins-7 losses. .....>So i reposted it a while later.....It now have an image score of 674.


This is one example.....theres many many more.

So......when people say the Algorythm is correct. It maybe mathematically correct,,,,,but sometimes its pure luck where your photo ends up

I have re-posted my pictures many times and different times of the day and sometimes I get more points and sometimes not. I just get frustrated over the whole mess.......
