Hey Shirley,

In order to keep our community a fun, safe place, we decided to rely on Facebook comments as Facebook verifies a person's identity and it's much less likely someone will post unnecessarily negative comments if it is tied to their Facebook profile. At this point, we plan to continue using Facebook comments.

Thanks!

Linking to Facebook doesn't really help photographers who want to keep that persona away from their Facebook one; there are many photographers who have a day job, with family and friends related to that BUT don't want that mixed with their passion for photography. I do wish you would provide a way for us to NOT link to Facebook, perhaps in the future.

When, and if that happens, you should provide a way for users to transfer their old FB account to the new one. To avoid irresponsible comments, the answer could be in the ability for photo owners to delete the offensive comment, as the way it's done in other apps.

It may be nice if Pixoto officially provided an email address for complaints or questions that we may have so we do not have to share with all the other members of the site and leave us open to public ridicule and insults. Some opinions and thoughts are best not distributed to so many.

Andy, I am so with you on this one. I have other Pixoto Members who ask me questions or would like to chat about techniques, but I don't want to broadcast that information to the universe, nor do I want to hand out my e-mail to a public forum. If we had some sort of intersite communications, is would be great!!

If you could communicate one on one, then you can just delete messages from any cranks, but you could answer some earnest questions.

There are a couple of requests here. First, we do plan to offer an internal commenting and communication system. It will be so much more than that too! We are really excited about rolling out some of these long requested features. We will need your patience though as we are currently focused on Pixoto Stock!

As for complaints or questions you prefer not to share through our community forums, please email info (at) pixoto (dot) com.

I hope that helps!

Look forward to the new commenting system. The Facebook solution does not work consistently.

Last week I mentioned that all my comments were turning up on Facebook, Shelly told me this was a bug on the site and would try and sort the problem out, but it's still happening

Hi Tony, it is on the list of fixes but I am not sure where it stands currently. Have you tried submitting a comment today?
