Duels between same artist.

In the typography category, I noticed that I am always voting on a duel in which both images are obviously from the same person and some research has confirmed that they are. I'd say this happens 90% of the time. I think something should be put in place that ensures a vote is between 2 different people, just to keep things fair.

I have had this happen to me many times. Sometimes if I go to the image that I have dueled against it will show that my image was dueled 3x's on their end and yet show 1x to my view.

Hello Sonya, can you please post links to the two photos you are referring of?
If you are not the Pro user, you can only view last 3 duels, and it can be that your photo has 2 more duels after it dueled other photo (that is why it only show 1x to your view), while other photo didn't receive more duels after it dueled your.

Hello Staci, photos will duel each other regardless of who the author is. The system is trying to find better image, not better user, so duels between two photos that belong to same user is normal.

I hope this helps.

I see. Thank you. I guess its just more obvious in the typography category because that seems to have a smaller pool of contributors. =)

You are welcome :)

Yes, in some categories where there is small pool of contributors situation like this can happen more often then in big categories.

This is contrary to what Jason said, he said that user images should not duel each other.
