New Proposed Category Structure

Hey All. We've taken a look at all of your feedback and have come up with proposed changes to category structure. We, of course, couldn't do everything that people wanted and we have had to make compromises to keep number of categories to a reasonable level (and to avoid duplicates). The category changes we are proposing are in the document located at this location:

https://docs.google.com/document/pub?...

Please post your comments to our changes here. Some we will be able to address.

Note: Probably the most common suggestion that we have NOT taken made adjustments to here is that of HDR. We feel that HRD is photography and belongs in the category with other images of the same type - not in it's own category . HDR images should be Tagged with HDR (please feel free to do this to any HDR image) so that one could look at the best HDR images overall.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Erik if you are suggesting that you will take away your business should Pixoto remove the mobile phone category, I suspect that loosing your free account won't cause them to spiral into bankruptcy

Jason I felt that I asked a valid question and received a condescending response. I'm still trying to clarify what Erik means but he seems unable to answer in a civil manner

I'm with Will. His post was removed but I have it in my mails so I ask the same:
So your business is based on people being able to post mobile phone picture to Pixoto is it?
This question is not offensive or rude but interesting and now that Erik (EB847) doesn't want to answer it makes this question even more interesting.

My feeling is that we should have the option not to see mobile phone pictures in the duel window.
My concern is that a half decent mobile picture may be able to achieve a high score as it only has to be better than the rest of the stuff in that category thus potentially leading to mediocre mobile phone pictures being seen on the front page.

guys the problem with mobile photo category are the snap shots from "instagram submissions". if you filter the photos to iphone, android, and others sub category, you will see that there are really a lot of great images.

I think Will's solution could be the best. Keep the mobile category and let everybody choose if they want so see them in their duels. Like for the mature content.
