A totally unreasonable and out of time category change totally disappointed me and made me loose interest in the Pro membership and the site. I posted my image - and old abandoned car- in the "Antiques" category and it did just fine. I don't quite remember the exact score, but it was very close to 700. About a year later I get an email telling me it has been recategorized to "Transportation". An old car abandoned in the street is a car, yes, but it is now more an antique than transportation. It would fit fine in either category if you don't cut so thin. I had a couple of images recategorized before, but this was done a short time after I uploaded them and before the 100 duels were finished. The image went up to 582 points in the new category, but I felt so disappointed with this that I stopped uploading images from that point and simply lost interest. I do ask myself... Why? What's the point... one year later? Who does this? Is somebody up to the the task of "hunting" images that can be recategorized because they were doing great? How hard can it be? There are lots of free sites in the internet with attractive features and contests... Come to think of it, I don't need this.

That's odd. I reported an image that was in the wrong category and told since it was over six months old they would not recategorise it!

Surely Jasenka, thanks for your reply. The image was recategorized from Antiques to Transportation. In Transportation it didn't went good, so I changed it to All Uncategorized, but it never reached the same score as it did in Antiques.

Hello Raymond, did you deleted the photo and then re-published it? I'm asking because I can not see this image was recategorized.

Hello Jasenka, I really don't recall deleting it and as far as I remember I think I just hit the resubmit button... but then again, I am not sure.
