Is this an OK comment to make to a challenge moderator?

I would like to post this comment to a couple of challenges. Would that be OK.

I do not know if you are aware how deeply unpopular your challenges are becoming to members of this site. If you go to the Help and Community section of Pixoto you will see several threads discussing your challenges. Several members are petitioning the management and owners to ban you. Paying members are threatening to ask for refunds. My intention here is not to threaten or scare you at all but to inform you of what's happening and to give you the opportunity to join the conversation. Thank you.

I'm not sure members are wanting to ban people, I think we are just wanting the ridiculous amount of challenges started by some brought under control by Pixoto.

One member (T. Peterson) said in another thread "Personally I will only be happy if she is removed permanently."

Look she has to be asked to comply with what ever Jason asks and if she does all is fine. If she doesn't then action should be taken. I always believe to give a person a chance to do the right thing. If they don't then do what is necessary. We are all here for our love of Photography and friendly competition. I would let Jason reach out to her its his Job. If she has been reading these treads there is a problem because she has kicked it up a notch in the last few days. Don't forget she is not the only one just the biggest abuser. The system is broken and its really hurting this site.

She isn't the only one, just the worst one as you say with 47 open challenges at this time, another person currently has 25 challenges in the voting stage....

Hi all, just wanted to let you know that management is aware of your dissatisfaction with challenges and we are trying to find solution that would be satisfying to all.

Hey all, what about a page for challenges to be voted upon? If a challenge gets voted down then it won't happen.

That's a good idea. Here is another one - in order to create a challenge, you must have earned the right to do so by accumulating something related to the quality of your images. A 5% or better on a new photograph earns you the right to create on challenge of three days length. That right expires in one month It's up to people smarter than me to refine this, but it would help if people creative enough to take good photos helped control the atmosphere at a website devoted to good photography.

It doesn't need to be complicated, all it needs is Pixoto to restrict the number of challenges any person can run at any one time, preferably to 2 max, and set a standard small amount of credits that can be earned from the challenge to perhaps 100.
Its simple, easily understood and workable.

I think Terry has the right idea -- limit the number of challenges someone can run at the same time.
