I think there needs to be a bit more enforcement on similar images - and the ones in question, I hate to even use the term image!

There is apparently a constraint of no similar images here on Pixoto. As I am voting, I swear that every few shots is one of a very overweight mother and her two chubby daughters on what seems to be a ship. Various poses, same orange shirt on the mother, but endless shots of this group. I think the management needs to cull out these endless shots of this family, most of which are almost identical. Sometimes, their photos are both of the choices in the image duals which then makes me choose "skip" in that the last thing I want to do is cast a vote for one of those alleged photographs. Thank you.

You mean you haven't even noticed the pouncing tigers, the lotuses, the paved streets, the mosques, the railway bridges and the backside of wet daisies so far??? You ain't seen nothing yet!

The family is just a few shots which are not the same, there are many worse culprits than those ones.

Then Terry, I go back to my original point - there needs to be better enforcement of their own rules. Not interested in seeing a family album seemingly poorly shot with a cell phone. This site is to celebrate excellence in photography, not a place to post snap shots!

This is a site where everyone can post their shots, beginners or not. And yes there are poor shots on here but everyone has to start somewhere. I don't vote for poor shots, just as I don't vote other kinds of "good" shots but they have a right to be here.

Unfortunately, the ones I allude to are basically endless "snapshots" of the same woman and her apparent daughters. I agree that beginners have to learn, but just posting endless shots standing on the deck of a ship, with no attempt to even have them in focus falls outside the realms of being just a photographic beginner. It falls in the realm of wasting cyber-space and voting slots where "real" photographic efforts can duel against one another. But, I guess in this age of PC, anyone with a cell phone should be allowed to post any bit of swill they see fit!

Fascinatingly, as I am writing in this thread, I got a notice from Pixoto that one of my shots of the moon is being deleted due to similarity with another. Got to love it! :) Maybe I'll get out my cell phone and start uploading snap shots!! LOL!

Was it really too similar? Then time to delete this thread, you're eating your own words, no offense. :)

No, I'm not eating my own words - the point I was TRYING to make is that due to endless, out of focus photos of this woman on the deck of a ship, some with and some without her kids, takes up an inordinate amount of voting space that could be reserved for "legitimate" photographic efforts. If you are offended, such is the world. Whether or not they were similar or dissimilar (in regards to my own), I couldn't give less of a crap, other than the fact that some effort was put into them at the time of the photography. Anyway good point, I'm the hell off my own thread. I'm already starting to get in the model that will assuredly get me in trouble with the management. Won't be replying to anymore. It's in the court of Pixoto as to how they want to run their site.

Dang it, Scott, I had NEVER seen that family before you mentioned them...and now, you're absolutely right, they are unavoidable! Almost 1 in 10 duels is about them!!!

Hello Scot, please report images that are very similar and report team will act if they are very similar according to our rules.

As Terry explained, everyone have right to post their images, regardless of their skill level.

They are more than similar, they are identical and I posted the link to that profile already.
