I think it's bogus that an image that was in the low 600s - one that I can't delete because it was in the top 5% - can drop to 560 during one day. It has been up for six days and the score only had minor fluctuations until some time today.

I don't want to come off as a sore loser, but I do find that suspicious and disheartening. This site is fun, but it would be even better without all of the blatant cheating, bad voting, and so-called "top photographers" with 50 pictures of the same flower from slightly different angles.

You nailed it Felicia...This site is fun, but.that's about it. All the negatives you pointed out...Cheating, inexplicable voting in the duels, and the criteria for "photographer of the year" being hundreds of pics that are almost but not quite too similar....are why I had to ask myself a while back...is it fun enough despite all the obvious negatives?

So far I have decided it is since they offer a free account. Sometimes I get asked by folks on this forum if I work for Pixoto because I try to encourage others to stay positive. I don't work for this site, I'm just trying to have with my camera...Happy shutter clicking to all!

Felicia, we run some analysis on your image duels and we didn't found anything that would point us it was not normal duel voting.

I hope this helps.
