I do not know what happens to duels for a particular file (http://www.pixoto.com/images-photogra...). It looks like under an embargo. Even if it lose, even if won, rarely participate in duels against other images in this category. You can give me an answer? For three days I am trying to give it a logical answer alone and fail. Thank you.

Seems that Pixoto changed duelling systems, but for me it works better.
May be amount of clickers recently decreased, and that`s why number of duels decreased

How do you know that the number of "clickers" decreased?

Because when by mistake I've clicked same image very fast 4 times(Safary sometimes is very laggy), it showed me a warning that my account is violating policy and will banned for 1 hour. So definite they added some new algorithm to prevent "clickers", and that`s why probably number of random votes decreased

Interesting....... so in that could be why mediocre photos have won so many good ratings in the past?

The problem is that after duels with other images. If you look in the history of an image with my image duel, my image does not appear. I mean my image to duel with another image, but that was not my duel. Weird! In connection with the "clickers" you can define. There are those who have free accounts and do not pay for credits?

Hello Constantinescu, can you please post photo that dueled yours and that doesn't have your photo in Image duel history? I have checked some and I do see your photo in their image duel history.
Do you have Pro account and can you look at whole Image duel history, or you can only see last 3 duels? If later is the case it my be that the other photo had more duels after it dueled yours and you will not be able to see your photo in other photo last 3 image duels, but it is recorded in complete Image duel history.

I do not have an account pro. I see only three images in history. The second assumption of yours is plausible and possible, however if my image participate in a duel (last) other image should participate in four duels for my image away from its history of 3 images. That means that my rate of participation in duels against other competitor is 25%. Weird! I did note in particular an example. It is not my business to monitor PIXOTO. If appropriate and ask me, I'll note.

This is now the situation with my image " - Lakeside - " . I posted it yesterday. Last two images from history do not already have mine in their history . In the history of the first pictures of my history I can find the picture 2nd. I noticed that duels are usually more frequent in the first day when the image is fresh and has posted fewer points. As there are several points , the frequency decreases duels . If you can repeatedly win duels , then their frequency increases. If you lose duels their frequency decreases. You automatically participate in duels is locked until you " pay " a fee if you lose duels . There is option to " pay " a fee and have guaranteed participation for a number of duels, having nothing to do with the frequency of participation in duels . In conclusion ; above and the current status of my image " - Lakeside - " do not overlap. The image " Cherries " is posted on the same day as mine ; has roughly the same number of points; when dueling " Cherries " have a duel in minus 20 wins and 20 losses ; after losing the battle with " - Lakeside - " " - Lakeside - " " stuck " and " Cherries " has participated in a duel again . Weird !

Hello Constantinescu, can you please see this link?

http://www.pixoto.com/about

Especially this part:

"My photo is not paused but isn’t getting any more duels. Why?

The ultimate number of votes that an image gets is dependent on its early dueling history. The more early wins an image has the higher its ImageScore will go and the more duels it will ultimately receive. The highest rated unpaused images on the site will end up with four times (or more) duels than the lowest. After the first 50 duels or so the change in ImageScore with each additional duel slows down. Essentially the first 50 or so duels define the approximate area of the leaderboard an image should be and the remaining duels refine that placement. We are primarily focused on refining the scores of the top image – which is the reason for the disproportionate number of duels to those types of images.

Our algorithms try to get new images up to the same level of votes as other images on the site as fast as possible. Sometimes this takes just a day – sometimes it can take a week. After an image reaches the same level of votes as other images with a similar ImageScore the image will only rarely be put in new duels."

I hope this helps.
