Once again - nature up close duels with photos from 2013. and older....

I know it was a question numerous times but I really want to know - is there really not any solution for category flowers 2011-2013 in nature up close category!!!

our new images are immediately paused after submitting, not all images of course, but old images, from 2011., 2012., 2013... are regulary in duels! WHY??

here is a photo of my actual submitting... you dont have any new photos in pixoto and because that you need to put into duel with old photos? .... and not just one duel, then 3 or more in a raw!!

my photo is loosing duels in a raw with the same photo of rose with waterdrops (its excellent photo, exellent photograph... ) from 2013. year, from category that no longer exist!!

we have tons of photos... what kind of algorithm pairs these photos??? It's not OK!!

and , my photos (with last 3 wins!!!) dont have any duels for a week or two... what is the reason that 3 or more years old photos have duels?? who activated that photo to dual agin?

my proposition:
SEPARATE PHOTOS FROM YEAR TO YEAR AND
DONT ALLOW DUELS BETWEEN PHOTOS FROM DIFFERENT YEARS.
beacuse of that:
DISABLE POSSIBILITY TO SEE PHOTOS OF ALL TIME ...
MAKE AVAILABLE TO SEE ONLY THE BEST PHOTOS PER YEAR!!

3 years ago was different algorithm, diferent categories, completely different system od work.... nobody gets any award for best photo of all time... leave it to a yearly base!

Hello Manuela, I'm sorry, we tried to move that subcategory to Flowers category but it wasn't successful. For now it will have to stay where it is until we find betters solution. If images are not paused they can be entered into duels anytime, regardless how old images are.

Why you just do all photos paused under category flowers 2011-2013 in nature up close? No need move anywhere, no take part voting and duel...until problem is solved:o) Have a nice day.

yes, you're right! all duels my photo has with 2012.-2014. year photos, most of them are flowers!! PAUSE ALL THESE PHOTOS!!

and I am very courious WHO ACTIVATE THESE OLD PHOTOS INTO DUELS? these photographers are not online for 2 or more years!!! and between milions of photos, duels are quite often with the same photo!

Mara, photos will continue to duel because they are also being placed for best in year and also best of all time, the problem that Manuela is describing is that in the Nature UP Close category there are flower pictures from 2011-2013 that are NO LONGER allowed in the category. Flowers have their own category now, yet the properly categorised pictures keep duelling against images that are no longer allowed.

about the only time you duel against older images is when you are above the 600 or 650 mark...I never get that far so it isn't a problem for me :) once you get over the 600 mark you are duelling for the top pics of all time. As per your image that is in the top 15% of all time... that is why you are duelling against older images.

Joyce, your photos are interesting and you have also photos with 600+ points

p.s. only solution to avoid duels against older photos is publishing poor photos :) :) :) voting system is really frustrating :)

in general I am becoming very frustrated with the voting on Pixoto so much so I do not wish to upload anymore
