This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Why are my images always getting paused..?

I am Pixoto player for a few years now, and I must report this strange, never before occured, behavior of this photo:
Whole day it has a few wins more than losses but gets paused, I pressed Get more votes a few times, but now it is 32 Wins, 25 Losses and Paused again. Is it now normal behavior of the site or something went wrong?

Hello Zoran, I'm sorry about delay in reply.

Why photos get paused is explained in About page.
Please see below:

Why is my image “Paused”?

Images get paused if they are statistically unlikely to move up to the top 10% of all images (approximately 615 ImageScore). Sometimes we determine this within this within 6 duels sometimes it takes 100. The key is that in order to provide good clarity into which images are in the top 10 we must vote the best images a lot. With a limited amount of duels available to us the best way to accomplish this is by pausing images once we’ve determined that they are not likely to get near the top. We use statistics so by definition we are not 100% confident that the image should be paused and so to address this issue we added the “get more votes” feature (the “play” button on the leaderboards). Under certain circumstances Paused images may still be placed in to duels and may be unpaused automatically.

Also on this link it is described whn win/loss ratio can not be used to determine score:

I hope this helps.
