fixing duel history for miscategorized images

I still haven't given up on pixoto.
There are so many good things here...
if I was to ask the programmers for ONE thing that would make the image scores more fair, it would be to correct for duels with miscategorized images.

The way it is, I think pixoto expects people to report or skip miscategorized images when they come up in a duel. Most of the time, voters don't even pay attention and just click for a vote. This could either falsely increase or decrease the score of the properly categorized image.

I think when an image is found in the wrong category, or is found with a watermark, or is found to be a cheat in some way, all duels with that image should be discounted. It is probably much more complicated than I would imagine- early image duels can be worth 20-40 points- later duels only a few points (as they get closer in score)... but it is quite frustrating when you lose two or three times to images that don't even belong in a category. Aside from blatant cheating- this is one of the more obvious ways that image scores can be seriously messed with.

Hi Sandra, thank you for your suggestion. I don't think that could be done since duels are happening based on wining or loosing in previous duels. If you remove one duel some of the duels after that might have never taken place, since your image has won or lost against the image in question so you would not be dueling next image that you have already dueled. Hope I'm at least somewhat making sense out of this.
