i am new here - i had a total of 8 awards (2 one day, 5 another day, and 1 today) but it only shows 7 awards total on my pixoto profile - and now when i click the fb post showing the 5 awards only 4 photos show on that page with awards. How did i end up losing an award?? One of my award wining (rising star award) photos no longer has the award it won - and its subcategory has been changed too - it was architecture - sub category was either decaying and abandoned or public historical (not sure which i put it as because it qualifies for both) - who changed my category and why?

Hi Dazz Lee, most likely you've received an email from pixoto telling that your picture was in the wrong category. If a picture is not in the right category, pixoto members can report them. Pixoto will check and (if needed) recategorize it (and indeed, you lose your points&awards then; basically start over in the new category).

so all the duel boosts we purchased with credits - do we get those credits back when they report and move our photos making them start all over? this category and subject thing has me messed up - some images could be considered more than one category or sub category - my image could have been under place of worship - or building - or decaying and abandoned - it is a chapel and crematorium - i perceived that as a cemetery category as well.

Hello Dazz, can you please post link to image in question?

Report team should not change subcategory of image, only category. Since I didn't see image yet, this is just from your description - if subject of your image is chapel and crematorium, then correct category for that image should be Building and architecture category.
