This means that, if everything went smoothly, we should have the awards of January 23rd, and this for 55 minutes.... Can somebody tell me why they’re not being distributed...?
I have nothing against experiments to try to improve the system, although it would have to work properly.

Hi Gerad, I'm sorry, Scott is missing "next" - it is a typo, we apologize for it.

The correct formulation for monthly awards is:

"5PM GMT (12PM EST) the 3rd Tuesday of the next month"

You can see correct formulation here: https://www.pixoto.com/photography-co...

There is no point in assigning monthly awards while the current month is still open for submissions.

Looking at the top ten daily awards for Animals on January 23rd, only one has shifted positions. I'd say the delay in assigning daily awards seems to be working much better.

Hi Gerard, you can see the plan for yearly awards on this topic. Badges should be distributed after all the yearly awards are assigned.

Sorry, I spoke about 2018, not 2019... It was a mistake, and your answer don't solve anything as usuel.

Gerard, checking your profile page: https://www.pixoto.com/gchatenet
I can see that you have 2018 badges for the following categories: Animal, Nature up close, Flowers, City, Street & Park, Artistic objects and Building and architecture.
Badges for 2018 were assigned 2 months ago - you can check in this topic: https://getsatisfaction.com/pixoto/to...
where you also replied that you received your 2018 badges.
I hope this time my answer solved your question.
