Why are we comparing insects to lions? Ridiculous!~!

If this is going to survive the images in the voting need to bear some reasonable relationship to each other.

Hello Jay, since awards are assigned on category level, all images in one category can be dueled against each other regardless of subcategories.

Seriously, Jasenka...this guy is beginning to get on our nerves, and he sounds like a deranged maniac anyway. Can't someone just remove him from here?

Caillin I wonder why you keep insisting on speaking with me that being the case. Perhaps you should just do what the wise woman , your Mother , said .and -- " Just ignore him. " It seems to me that somebody that was secure in the relevancy of his " art " would have no problem doing that. Why would you continue to speak to me if you believe that I'm a deranged maniac. lol

Bruised egos are a terrible psychological affliction Sir.

Seek therapy.

So what! Insects and lions do not belong in the same category level. You need to refine the categories. It makes a joke of the whole voting system. That is my opinion and I am sticking to it!

You have specific categories for cats and dog; you need more categories.

As the Jasenka Lukša just explained, categories are voted in regardless of their sub categories. So "Cats" and "Dogs" will compete with each other as they are both categorized under "Animals".

Although I do agree this is entirely unfair.

Dear Jay Gould :

Would you support a separate category for " painting with a camera "? OH WAIT there already is one , it's called Digital Art. The " painters with a camera " however completely and totally ignore it though and post everywhere and anywhere they damn well please and are allowed to get away with it.

I agree that the categories are to broad. Sub categories should be used A photo of a 100 yr old barn should not be judged against a sky scraper?? Yes I know they are both buildings. Then why have the sub cat. I am not happy with the randomness of the photos I am voting on ie.. frog vs flower . I also get drawings in my voting I did not sign up for a drawing site. i have been voting on the quality of the photo but it would be nice to also compare similar shots. It is easy to get a photo of a dog in your yard vs a wild animal.

Hello Silver, if frog and flower were in either Animal or Flower category then one of them is in incorrect category. Some categories can have various subjects (like Instagram, Digital Art, Black and White, Novices only...).
Subcategories are for organizational purposes. All awards are assigned on category level so images need to be dueled across subcategories to find their place in category.
Traditional art section is part of Pixoto and all Pixoto users vote on all types (Photography, Illustrations and Traditional art).

I hope this helps.

Dogs have their have their own category so would not be duelled against wild animals. I do have issues with the stuffed animals in museum's being in animals though.

Jasenka, nothing you have said changes the fact that the categories need to be refined and increased in number.

I am constantly indicating that an image is in the wrong category; I have no idea if I am wasting my time because we do not receive any feedback.

I have no problem duelling large animals against birds or birds against snakes, but i do think it's a pain having the dam silly little insects in the came category ?
Can we split off the small creatures to a separate category, the same as was done for cats and dogs ?

If you are going to split one, then redo the entire system! Dueling large animals against tiny birds is just as ridiculous.
