Dear Pixoto it appears to me that my pictures are being frozen prematurely. For a perfect example check out my picture Great Blue Heron posted this morning. It is frozen with 4 wins and no loses!

Hey Terry,

You'll have to post a link to the image for us to look at it.

Thanks!

Justin I see that the picture in question did get unfrozen and it went to 480. However over the last month I am not able to get too many to even get over 500. It does not appear to be the fault of the picture. It appears that many are just out to get points and consequently they vote against mine without really looking.

I found out how to get more votes on my older pictures. Click on the picture and go to the right of the screene and it will saw double image duel that will last for up to 24 hours. It cost 10 points each picture.

I do the duel boost and sometimes I loose points and can't figure out why. It makes me upset that I lose points instead of gaining them. Yvonne

Y-von - one of the risks of "DuelBoost" is that your ImageScore can go down. So use it knowing this is a possibility.

I don't think that is fair. You gain the points and then you loose them. It just doesn't seem right.

What good is the image duel or the image boost if you can't keep your points?

Here is a new problem> Mixing Categories!

My picture of ducks was doing fine with 570 when I entered it yesterday 28th Feb. Then suddenly it was stopped in its tracks by people voting on insects! A duck is NOT an insect!!!

Here are the insect shots put up against my bird shot.

I do not believe that this is fair!

Terry. you're right! I also wonder what tho vote for when I see animals vs insects, or in Pets get the duel between a cat and some rare bird! Push for the right categorization!!

And how about this? "Journalism"?!

What journalistic value do have many of the Top 100 images in that category?

Since I compete there, I certainly am biased. However, after checking the leaderbord from following link, one may think different.

Here are examples of Top 100 weekly "Journalism" images at this point. Take some time and judge by yourself which of the images seems to be correctly categorized, and which not.

"Journalism" Feb 29.

Please feel free to share your opinion with me, even if that opinon is not favoring my attitude.

Terry - Images play most of their duels in the same sub-category. However in order to find an overall winner in a category it is necessary to play them against images in the category as a whole (they don't play outside of the category). Your ducks have the same probability of playing against a spider as does every other bird - so in that way the leaderboard for "Birds" maintains it's integrity - as does the leaderboard for "Wildlife"

Tigi - We want to create a new photojournalism category and move it away from commercial - could you provide me some feedback on what the sub-categories should be and on what types of images should not be allowed in the category?
