they were similar so i decided to delete one, but the challenge moderator deleted both, so i left a message in the comment section to let them know to undisqualify one of the photos since i deleted one, they have not responded
can pixoto over ride?
wasn't the proper way to handle this to report my images and let pixoto decide if duplicates?

We are all at the whim of the moderators when we enter Community Challenges, unfortunately. I've had images dq'ed for not fitting the theme when they've fit the theme perfectly, although my favourite was when I received an email that one of my photos had been dq'ed from a challenge and then I also went on to win an award in that challenge with the same photo :-)

I haven't a clue how that happened, it just made me laugh.

If you wanted to spend the credits, you could always resubmit the image to the challenge that you didn't delete off the site, and see what happens.

its not the credits that bother me, i have plenty
and i understand being a moderator since i have ran challenges too
i dont want to have to delete and resubmit the photo because my score is good and ive won awards

i just feel like it wasnt handled properly, they should have reported the images or deleted one and at least respond to my comment

Heather, I'm sorry but Pixoto doesn't moderate Community Challenges. I have ability to remove dq from your photo but the challenge moderator could easily dq it again.

Hope you understand.

thank you. if you can remove it, at least we can try that first, i dont want to resubmit because of awards and entry in other challenges, i understand they may disqualify again. but his reason doesnt stand anymore since the "duplicate" has been deleted
